The calls for police defunding may be growing louder by the day, but our officers are continuing to do a fine job, often winning praise for going above and beyond.
Recently a Sulpher, Louisiana cop has won the hearts of thousands of people after a Houston family thanked him for assisting them during a roadside incident in Louisiana.
Tamara Moreland offered a shout-out to a Sulpher, Louisana, police officer Adam Hanson who helped her parents get safely back on the road. She said that her parents were traveling from Houston when they became stranded with a blown-out tire on I-10 in Sulpher.
With oncoming traffic passing just inches away, the Houston travelers were in grave danger, “There were big trucks flying by like crazy and they were way too close to oncoming traffic,” Moreland said. Her parents called for roadside assistance, but nobody came. Thank God, Hanson stopped to help them.
“They called AAA but they never arrived as they waited, unfortunately. Luckily, a good Samaritan who happened to be a Sulphur police officer pulled over to help them,” Moreland said. Vehicles were passing just inches away, but Hanson maneuvered along the interstate shoulder and helped change out the tire for the Houston couple.
After that Hanson led the Houstonians to a nearby tire company to buy a new tire. “Who needs unreliable roadside assistance when you have this guy around?” Moreland said. “His name is officer Adam Hanson and he was the kindest and helpful person that could’ve come along to assist my parents.”
