Late Monday night, September 21, 2015 Denver Police District 1 Officer Steven Siedel, Officer David Briggs and Officer Ismael Lopez responded to a convenient store in the 1300 block of W. Colfax Avenue on a welfare check. The caller explained that he saw a woman with two small children sleeping on the concrete in front of the convenient store without a blanket. The officers contacted the woman, who we’ll simply call Trina. Trina, who was with her 5-year-old and 4-year-old children, explained that her husband and their two year-old son were stranded in Lakewood after their minivan broke down somewhere on Wadsworth Boulevard. Trina and her family had been living out of the minivan and it breaking down left her family stranded outside. After unsuccessful attempts to find the family a shelter, the officers decided to take the generous route. The three officers pulled their own personal funds together and placed the family in a hotel in the 2600 block of Zuni Street. If that weren’t enough, the officers bought the family dinner and even located Trina’s husband and other son and transported them to the hotel to be reunited with their kin.
There are waaaaaay more good cops than the bad ones reported by the media! Sad that we don't hear about them!
Do you know how many times we've dropped off food, clothing, & toys to needy families? More times than I can count!
Don't call the police when in need if you have an issue with cops. Keep your ass outa trouble and maybe the police look different. Don't commit crimes idiots!
True, Kris Custer. But you've already made up You're mind about police. You think the majority of police are corrupt.
Police are like any other job. 10% go above and beyond. 85% are indifferent and performance is mediocre. 5% are criminals. That 5% is a huge problem, though.
This will not change the minds of those who have already deemed all police criminal like Kris Custer.
This is just what human beings should do for each other. You don't need a shiny badge and magical costume to do something to help.a fellow human being who has been less fortunate than yourself. Does not make up for the killings, brutal treatment, and lies forced upon Denver's public.
Is this some sort of puff piece that's supposed to make us forget how horrible the police really are? Well never forget #MarvinBooker
