Michigan Officer Gives Young Mom Car Seat Instead of a Ticket

October 07, 2014  | 

Emmett Township, Mich., Public Safety Officer Ben Hall was on his patrol Saturday when he pulled a vehicle over for a traffic violation. 

When he made contact with the driver, he noticed a small child in the car who was wearing a seat belt but not in a child's car seat. The young mother told Officer Hall that she understood the importance of having the child in a car seat, but could not afford one because of her limited income at the time, KCTV 5 reports. 

Rather than giving the woman a traffic ticket, Officer Hall had her pull into a Walmart parking lot, where he went inside and purchased a car seat for her.

This story can't be true. Why else did we not hear about it from the mainstream media?

Kudos to the Officer!!

These events are done way more than is reported. Most L.E.O's. aren't publicity seekers.

MSM CNN or CBS must be tracking down what employee(s) allowed a good story about Law Enforcement so they can be disciplined.

My agency did this too, we carried them in the trunk but that was 15 years ago, I wonder if they still do it.
