VIDEO: 9-Year-Old Louisiana Boy Hands Out "Police Lives Matter" Envelopes to Officers

Nine-year-old Jayden Witsell's been obsessed with law enforcement for as long as his mom can remember.

“Always, always, his first Halloween costume, he was three. He wanted to be a police officer,” said Angelique Witsell.

Jayden's daily attire consists of dark pants, shoes, police pins and a belt. On his belt, he sports a fake radio, handcuffs and a security badge. It's as close to the real thing as he can do for now.

Still, Jayden wanted to find a way to show all law enforcement how much he respects them.

“He said Mom, please can we get some St. Michael pocket coins, so that men and women can keep them in their pocket,” Witsell told WVUE TV.

Jayden you are wise beyond your years. Thank you so much for having the courage to speak your mind. I hope you get to realize your dream.

Jayden, thank you for supporting police officers! Even something small like your note and coin gives them support they need on a daily basis. When many young men your age do not respect Law Enforcement, you are a great example of how all citizens should be thanking police officers for protecting us!
