Ticket To Fromula

One Saturday on a cold January day Officer Roby (with the London police department in Kentucky) got a call that somebody had been shoplifting, now I know what your thinking, some deviant teenager who stole a video game or something. That’s not the case here, Officer Roby showed up to see a single father and his 6month old baby boy. The father had stole a can of formula. Officer Ruby said “Me citing him for court wouldn’t have done any good for him, He’s already short on money, cant afford formula, so making him appear in court, he’s still not going to have any food for that baby” So Officer Ruby bought the man several cans of formula and the store decided not to press charges. Officer Ruby says “You see your son or your daughter in that little carrier and you think what would you want somebody to do for your son or daughter” If I would of got that call I would of done the same thing, not saying what he did was okay but its understandable. Officer Ruby goes on to say “Behind the uniform, I’m a human being and I’m a person out in this community just like any of them, I have a little boy. I’m a father just like that gentleman was, were not these robots, there’s a human behind the badge” Just like the last article I wrote about this officer also wanted to show that he is also just a person with feelings and a family, not a robot who doesn’t care. I think it was great of him to buy that father several cans of formula, one less thing that dad has to worry about for awhile (Formula is overpriced in my opinion anyway, again not saying what the dad did was okay).
