An 8 real old Texas girl who was abducted by a stranger in broad daylight has been found alive!

https://www.foxnews.com/us/abducted-...cle-police-say

You can see a harrowing video of the mother chasing after the car on surveillance footage. He grabbed her right off the street. Thanks to two citizens who responded to an amber alert the cops found her safe in a hotel with a 51 year old man. Crazy, it appears to be a totally random kidnapping. Great police work! Who knows what the monster had planned for her. It’s Texas, so hopefully they juice him up.

St. Louis teen's act of kindness touching hearts across St. Louis area


Quote:
In the midst of severe weather Tuesday, a St. Louis teen's efforts to help a man in a wheelchair stuck in the storm's path is touching hearts across the metro area.

Gregory Beck was leaving Schnucks on St. Charles Rock Road in St. John when the tornado sirens starting going off.

“Everyone kept telling me the storm is coming and you need to hurry up and get home," said Beck.

Beck lost both his legs within the last year. Diabetes also caused him to go legally blind. He can't drive, so he pushes himself up and down a hill to his home.

He says drivers were honking and yelling at him as he tried to cross St. Charles Rock Road. He made it to a nearby gas station when a car pulled up.

"This lady and her son were hollering at me like 'are you okay?" Beck said. “Very lovely lady driving and her son. Just the greatest people and very concerned about other people, which America needs to start doing more of.”

Minnesota Police Officer Responding to a Welfare Check Winds Up Mowing Elderly Woman's Lawn

Quote:
Minnesota police officer Matt Siltala went the extra mile this month to help an elderly resident with some long-overdue gardening work.

The patrolman was doing a wellness check alongside colleague Jay McCoy when he volunteered for the task. McCoy snapped the photo of Siltala hard at work, and the sweet moment — shared by the Orono Police Department on Facebook — soon spread across social media.

Smile Police officer buys groceries for financially strapped family after finding boy trying to buy snacks by himself

An Austin, Texas police officer, concerned for a young boy's safety, drove him home and then later returned with groceries for his family.
