Something you won't see on CNN or Fox


I was picking up something in the Factory Outlets in Castle Rock. On my way in, I saw a hood up on a car and went over to help in case they needed jumper cables. It was two black male teenagers that had been shopping. The battery was dead. My car couldn't quite give them the jump they needed and then a Douglas County police car came over. The officers were very friendly and immediately asked the somewhat nervous young men how they could help. His car was able to perform the jump. The boys THANKED him for helping AND for their service. The officers were both white, but very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful, which is their role.

This kind of interaction happens everyday and of course police never get mentioned for this type of work.

I had been chatting with the two boys. They were very worried their senior year of football at Rangeview was not going to happen. Bummer part of the story.
