Mesa Arizona police officer Kent Green had been driving by a dumpster and saw a man inside collecting cans and bottles. He stopped the man and asked him to get out, due to safety concerns. As he turned to leave, he noticed the man needed some shoes, and asked if he would like to try a pair on. Green is a runner, and carries his old running shoes with him to give to people on the streets who need shoes. A neighbor witnessed his act of kindness and posted Green’s picture on Face Book. Green says many officers do similar things, he just happens to give away shoes. After the social media attention, Green has heard from many people who want to help by giving him more shoes to give away. He pointed out that his car is only so big then added, “It’s been overwhelmingly positive, humbling, and just awesome. I just hope (this) brings a little positivity to police and what they do behind the scenes every day, every night.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
