NJ State Trooper buys a meal for a couple who were in need
This week's #BlueFriday recipient is a NJ State Trooper who showed kindness on a couple definitely could use a nice gesture.
According to the NJ State Police Facebook page, Trooper Sean Wallace received a call about a food store with a panhandler outside. When Wallace arrived to the store in Hainesport, the store manager voiced their concern over a man outside the store asking for money. The same man was asked to leave the premises earlier in the day.
In the video above, you can see Trooper Wallace ask the man "What's going on?' The man explains that he needs money to buy a rotisserie chicken for him and his wife. The man says that not having money to buy the chicken was his only problem and that the couple had not eaten since using the last of their money for breakfast.
Trooper Wallce asked the man to wait while he went back into the store. Wallace then returned with a rotisserie chicken for the man. Trooper Wallace also made the point of reminding the man that loitering and panhandling is not allowed and told him not to return or "It's going to be different, all right?"
Trooper Wallace could've handled that situation differently but he showed kindness to a man who was obviously down on his luck, yet he still got his point across. Thank you Trooper Wallace for your act of kindness and generosity.
