A police officer in Huntersville, North Carolina, stopped off at a local Dunkin’ for coffee Tuesday morning. When he walked out to his squad car, he found a sweet note he’ll not soon forget.
The cop, identified by Huntersville Police Department as Officer Aaron, spotted the following message scrawled on a Dunkin’ napkin tucked under his windshield: “Praying God’s protection over you — today and always!”
Aaron said he plans to keep the handwritten note in his car “from now on.”
The kindhearted gesture comes as police are facing increasing scrutiny from many on the left as well as dangerously violent attacks.
Over the last several days, a total of four police officers — two in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and two in Los Angeles County — have endured deadly ambushes. Several law enforcement officers were also violently killed during the height of the Black Lives Matter protests and riots following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man killed by a now-former Minneapolis police officer in May.
