Michigan police officer Ben Hall pulled over a mother because she didn’t have her 5 year old child in a booster seat. The mother explained that she’s fell on tough times and her car with a booster seat was repossessed. Instead of writing her a ticket, the officer asked her to meet him at a Wal-Mart where he purchased a booster seat for the child.
“A ticket doesn’t solve the situation. What solves it is the child being in a booster seat like she should be. Easiest $50 I ever spent,” said Hall.
The mother was at a loss for words but later showed her appreciation by posting this thank you letter to the Emmett Township Police Department’s website.
“I would like to say thank you to officer Hall for his help and compassion. Last night he helped me and my family out more than he will ever know. I recently hit a financial struggle, lost my vehicle, and my childen’s car seats. And last night officer Hall was doing his job and saw that my daughter was not in a car seat, and yes I know how important it is for her to be in one, he went out of his way, and out of his own pocket, and purchased my daughter a car seat. I thank God for putting you in my life officer Hall. You are an amazing man, and I will never forget the kindness and compassion you showed me, and you also showed my daughter and myself that there are people out there that care. Thank you! “
