Police Decide To Bring Food To A Deceased Officer's Grieving Family - Cashier Does The Unthinkable

The memory of Thursday's shooting of police officer Blake Snyder is a heavy weight on St. Louis county police lieutenant Karl Bulla.

“Obviously the most stressful event that the police department can face is the loss of an officer,” noted Bulla, president of the St. Louis County Police Welfare Association.

As the sad news of Snyder’s death began to circulate, his family, friends and fellow officers came together to mourn.

A little later, Officer Snyder’s family requested food from Chick-Fil-A. Lt. Bulla and his partner went to the Chik-Fil-A in Chesterfield with a $500 order for close to 60 people.

Bulla explained what happened next: “The young lady behind the counter said I just want to let you know this is taken care of. We're like, ‘No, the Welfare Association's going to pay for it.’ She's like, ‘No, it wasn't taken care of by us, although we would've done that. It was taken care of by a gentleman who, don't tell him, but he's sitting right behind you.’”

“It's emotional, you know? And that's the thing that gets officers through this. It get us through this because the public, I think, are generally good. They support the police department,” Bulla went on.

Bulla and his partner expressed their gratitude to the man, who wished to remain anonymous. The man then explained how officers caught the man who allegedly shot Ballwin police officer Mike Flamion in his backyard last summer.

The man said this was his way of saying thanks for keeping his family safe.

Bulla said he and the whole department appreciate what the man did. “You've got my card. I'd love for you to call me because we want to take care of you. If I can just buy you a coffee or take you out to lunch somewhere it's the least I can do for you.”

Of interest, the St. Louis County Police Welfare Association and the West County Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association are raising money for Officer Snyder's family with a family friendly mouse races event on October 14th.
