Photo Of Officer Goes Viral Overnight - Officer Never Knew Camera Was There

Gun violence, criminal activity and activism against the authorities are becoming increasingly relevant issues across several areas in America. In Circleville, Ohio, a man named Tyler Russell recently made waves across the social media platform, Facebook, when he uploaded a picture of a police officer looking into their cruiser along with a short description. Mr. Russel posted the picture to show solidarity with police officers across America’s counties and wanted the unidentified police officer to known that there was someone looking out for him while his back was turned. The picture and caption soon went viral with thousands of likes and hundreds of comments praising Mr. Russel’s actions.

The viral story began when Mr. Russel was driving through a shortcut car parking area on the way to a Walmart in Circleville before he noticed a police offer from another county. On a whim, Mr. Russel decided to slow down and observe the police offer who was fiddling around with something in the front seat of his cruiser. Mr. Russel decided to watch the unidentified officer because he was concerned that the officer was vulnerable and has his back turned, saying “To the sheriff deputy outside messing with his cruiser what you didn’t know was I sat in this parking spot watching over you watching your back I got your 6”. Mr. Russel was reportedly alarmed at the thought of a police officer being attacked by activists or criminals and was not afraid to support the Ohio authorities with lethal force if required, adding in his post that “What else you didn’t know was that I got a CCW and I will protect your life if it comes down to it, you’re not on your own out here. Stay safe sir”.

Mr. Russel ended his post with “#Igotyour6”, referencing the military terminology for having another person’s back. Mr. Russel’s original post was uploaded on the ‘Ohio Going Blue’ Facebook page and he hoped that the unidentified police officer was uplifted by the show of support and commitment from the community.
