Cop Stops Girl For Searching Between Cars - He Breaks Down When She Explains Her Story

In recent years, police officials and judicial authorities across America have been accused of corruption, racism, un-impartiality and brutality. However, the actions of a police officer in Temecula, California, show that America’s law enforcement officials are still made up of kind, honest and selfless people. On November 8, 2015, Officer Bruce Pierson was called to investigate suspicious activity near the Promenade Mall along Winchester Road. An 18-year-old homeless woman was apprehended by Mall Security after being caught skulking around cars in the mall carpark.

When Officer Pierson arrived on the scene, he began talking with the homeless girl who called herself ‘Franki’ and a saddening tale began to unfold. Rather than trying to break into the cars or do anything illegal, Franki was merely rushing between them to seek shade from the burning hot tarmac as she couldn’t afford a pair of shoes. Officer Pierson saw her feet which he described as ‘blacker than my boots’ and decided that he couldn’t just leave her. At this point, the kind-hearted police officer took Franki to the Promenade Mall, heading straight to a PayLess ShoeSource store. As Franki looked for a suitable pair of shoes, Officer Pierson learned that she had been homeless since the age of 12, had recently miscarried a child when she was 17 and that she was currently living with her boyfriend and two dogs. However, Franki’s tragic circumstances took a turn for the better when two other shoppers in the footwear store approached Officer Pierson offering to buy Franki shoes or clothing if she needed it. At this point, Franki began crying, stating that she hadn’t ‘had shoes for over two months’.

Officer Pierson also asked his wife what she could do to help. By the time Franki left the mall, she had two pairs of shoes, a scarf, a beanie and several pairs of socks. Moreover, Officer Pierson’s wife had brought over 2 bags of dog food, a number of sweaters and a blanket.

Officer Pierson also referred Franki to an organization called ‘Project Touch’ which aims to get people off the streets and in clean, safe, affordable housing. Joshuah Rounds was one of the other customers at the shoe store, who offered to help Frank and he posted a picture of Officer Pierson along with a short description of what he had done for Franki. The post went viral, being shared over 100,000 times in 48 hours. Officer Pierson believes that he was ‘only doing the right thing’ and that ‘blanket’ negative views towards law enforcement officers risk stereotyping good people who serve their communities on and off duty.

Above and beyond the call of duty:
