Good Deed

  • A good deed caught on camera generated lots of attention for two Chicago police officers who stopped to help a woman with a 1-month-old baby change a tire.

    Sergeant Pat Barker said he didn't know someone was recording as he, his partner and a third man joined a fourth who had already stopped to help.

    Barker said the woman's car was hallway in the intersection of North Lakewood Avenue and West Foster Avenue, so their first priority was to make sure her vehicle didn't get hit by oncoming traffic.
Sometimes a video camera around is exactly what is needed - otherwise, who'd believe cops actually do nice things on occasion? The truth is, we do nice things way more often than anyone even knows.

VERY GOOD to see a positive story on CPD.

Now watch what was sent to me by two very different people (one, a medical doctor friend who I know, the other a professional photographer).

THIS is a very eye-opening video.

Draw your own conclusion, but ask yourself this - why isn't the "crack" Media reporting this and investigating this??

Some of this video footage I have never seen played, nor have I heard any of the big media names even question some of these odd actions.

Whatever party you are a "lifelong member" of, this stops you in your tracks!!

Watch it twice...

Only assholes with an agenda think police dont do anything good or nice. When you are an asshole you probably get treated like an asshole.

The CPD should also give some recognition to the citizens that helped out.
They supported the police and their fellow Chicagoan.

Maybe others will see the example and help out in the future.

You want the police department to give some sort of recognition to citizens who helped a lady change her flat tire? What does that have to do with the police? Should the water department recognize citizens for driving safely? Should streets and sanitation give out an award for water conservation? People should help other people because they're good people and they want to help, not for some bullshit recognition. The police department should not be expected to recognize random acts of kindness among citizens. It's just weird that you think this way.

Always amazed me that the police have to change their squads flat tires! I remember coppers hitting the medical after changing a tire because of a injury.

This is what a lot of us have said over and over again. The Sgt. said, I didn't know someone was videoing them, while helping this women. You have to think you are videoed all the time and act accordingly.

Great story. It is the type of stuff that we do EVERY DAY.
Unfortunately it will end up on page 96. That type of story doesn't sell newspapers

Gypsy scam. They lifted Sarge's wallet. True, they took the $5 lunch money I loaned him and he still gave me 2 on the end.

That video jumped over 200,000 views in the last 24 hours. Very scary.

If you haven't watched this video - spend 15 minutes -

Great job by Sgt Barker and the officers up in 20. Even though it is a slow area they found time to help out. I bet there were about 100 able bodied citizens that never offered to help. I think the Goodyear Tire Safety award should be presented at the next CAPS meeting by Eddie Johnson.
