A police officer from Tallahassee Police Department in Florida goes above and beyond for a homeless man.
Carlson heard that the homeless man was not allowed to work if he don’t shave his beard. After knowing the fact about the homeless man from one of the staff members of McDonald’s, he was stunned and decided to help him.
Without giving a second thought, the officer bought some clippers and offered to shave man’s beard right there in the parking lot.
Carlson’s strange interaction was witnessed by a woman who was sitting in a car near the gas station. She went inside the gas station to know about it and had a conversation with the officer. She was blown away by the act of kindness and shared the incredible story with the Tallahassee Police Department.
“I am so proud to live in a community where our deputies and officers are such wonderful people,” woman said. “Good job Tallahassee Police Department!!!”
#MustSee #MorePureAwesomeness We thought the picture was awesome, well here’s THE VIDEO of Officer Carlson helping one of our citizens. #TPD #Tallahassee
THE STORY AS TOLD BY THE CITIZEN SUBMITTING THE INFORMATION: “My daughter just sent me this picture and called to tell me the story, I had to share….she went to the gas station and saw this officer shaving a homeless man's beard. A minute later the officer went into the store and Hannah walked in after him and saw him cleaning himself up because he was hot and sweaty. She offered to buy him a drink and got talking. Apparently the officer was at McDonald's next door and this gentleman went in looking for a job. He was told they wouldn't hire him unless he shaved his beard. So the officer went and got some clippers and shaved the man's beard so he could go back and get a job! I am so proud to live in a community where our deputies and officers are such wonderful people. Good job Tallahassee Police Department!!! ❤”
