The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food. The woman on the right i...s Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute. Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries: “I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn't going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.” And there’s no denying they were hungry.

After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store. And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.

Wow!

I hope that lady will do well on her new job. That would set a great example. Did you read the comments on that paper? Some people think that crooks are crooks. However, people can repent and change their ways. Otherwise, there would be no hope for us sinners.

Lord have mercy.

Absolutely everybody's favorite news source ( angel) , FOX, reported this the other day.  I caught an interview with the cop and the woman she helped out.  It wasn't so-called "social media", so I gave it some credence.  If it was a put-up job, why would the cop have allowed herself to be interviewed on national t.v.?  If she wasn't really a cop (in spite of the uniform she was wearing with a very obvious badge and shoulder patch-thingy of the police dept.) wouldn't the police dept. have discredited her?

If the story is true, I second hecma925:
God bless this woman and her family.  God bless this cop. 
.  If the story is untrue, I second hecma925:
God bless this woman and her family.  God bless this cop. 


If the story is true, why would it be "drivel"??

It seems that the story has been picked up and reported by MSN News, Yahoo News, ABC News, Daily mail, jobs.aol.com, NY Daily News, and a slew of TV stations--mostly in Florida but some as far as Denver and Boston.

By skeptical, I did not mean dismissive. This one seems genuine. I pray it works out for the officer (whose actions may present trouble with fellow cops) and for the woman.

No, no . no. Can't you see? They are enforcing alternate side of the street parking regulations in anticipation of winter weather! Those regulations really, really tick off the locals!

Donuts with all their fried grease are not good for the heart.
Giving police free donuts is not a service.

Oh, if my husband were ever offered a free donut, he would not refuse it.
He is a sweet tooth!

Back on topic. It is good when police officers get some positive coverage.
That this female officer is doing such good deeds is a good sign.

Brewed??? You mean twice boiled, don't you? Then add whiskey and par boil.

NO cream. No sugar.

Only girls drink starbucks.  Being a manly man I drink coffee brewed with whiskey.

Brewed??? You mean twice boiled, don't you? Then add whiskey and par boil.

NO cream. No sugar.
This sounds a lot like the coffee I shared with my sailor friend in the back of the children's Q and A session when the bishop visited a couple of years ago.

Re: the OP —

While I fully support this officer's actions, I hope she is willing to face the full wrath of a disciplinary hearing. This ain't a normal person doing a decent thing, this is a sworn peace officer intentionally derelicting duty and then publicizing it.

The police officer did cite the woman with a misdemeanor, so this woman will have to face a judge or pay a fine, etc.

Didn't see that part. Every account I've read of this (two, to be exact) implied that the officer let the lady go.

If you had read the subheading in the OP link, you would have seen brightly blue colored heading:

'Arresting her wasn't going to solve the problem with her children being hungry,' said Thomas, who instead gave her a misdemeanor citation and bought her $100 worth of groceries

As my mom would have said: "Snake, it would have bitten you."  laugh

Oh, well, when I was in college, it was expected that we read the title page, subtitle, and introduction to all books.
Some graduate students still did not understand this expectation. And some did not pass.  Roll Eyes

Sorry but if I have no other option to feed my kids, you're damn straight I'm stealing food.

I would love to know the weight of all the food that is thrown away because it is "expired" or "bad" in a total year. How many half-eaten plates get thrown away on a daily basis?

Yet this woman and her family are starving. It is crazy.
