Woman Asks Officer Odd Question - Then He Notices What She Had Behind Her

One Ohio mother was desperate and needed help, so she turned to her local police department where one officer went above and beyond the call of kindness.

The woman walked into the Butler County Sheriff's Office in Ohio with her two sons, and explained to officers that she had just been evicted from her house and was waiting to hear back about a housing decision that left her homeless in the interim, according to WSB-TV Atlanta.

That’s when Deputy Brian Bussell, a 25-year veteran of the department, stepped up to the plate.

“I know our visitation is at 9 AM, and I saw the lady and the two young children sitting in the chairs,” Bussell said. “I assumed they were here to visit someone in our jail. When I walked back out a while later, the children were asleep, and the lady was still sitting there, so I inquired if she needed assistance.”

Butler used money out of his own pocket to buy the family a 10-night stay at a local hotel. Then he took them to Walmart to pick out some clothes and shoes. Butler footed the bill for the entire thing.

“He went to the Walmart when they were done and paid for everything,” said Sheriff Richard K. Jones. “This is a true act of kindness. He did not tell anyone at work what he had done but the lady took a picture with him and posted it on Facebook. That’s actually how we found out. It was shared so many times that I got a phone call asking if I knew what a generous gesture my deputy did. I am pleased that he was able to help this family out. This speaks volumes in light of all the recent negativity people are saying about law enforcement. I have some of the best employees here.”
