An officer pulled up a driver who was going over the speed limit, as he went to have a chat with her but he realised that the woman’s mother was sat in the passenger seat. The woman explained that she was rushing her mother to an appointment for her cancer treatment. So Deputy Matthew Brakeman went back into his car to gather his thoughts, instead of giving the driver a ticket he decided to go back and offer a prayer.
He had lost his mother to cancer and he knew it was the only right thing to do, he knew that they weren’t criminals but they were simply in a hurry to get to the appointment. The woman was so touched by the emotional prayer that she wrote on the police department’s Facebook page. The officer was very glad that his little act of kindness went a long way!
