White guy pulled over by black cop; what happens next will blow you away

Every once in awhile, we need a little reminder that this world isn’t actually tearing to pieces and everyone isn’t filled with hate and rage.

I don’t know Mike Powers, but he has over 10,000 followers on Facebook. This particular post was shared 658,466 times. I can see why. Here is Mike’s story from September 2nd.

Driving through Mississippi this morning I got pulled over for speeding. A huge black cop got out of the car. Mr. Olympia walked up and asked for my license and insurance. He came back, informed me I was speeding and handed me my ticket.

As he started to walk away I asked him how he’s handling everything and how the cops are feeling in Mississippi with all of the senseless killings this week throughout the country. He said “things are tough, but we’re hanging in there and just trying to do the right thing and keep people safe…but it’s scary.”

I told him “just so you know, a lot of people are standing with you all and respect the risks you take every day to keep us safe.” I took my bracelet off and told him that I give these out to my family, friends, and military members who might need extra protection and that I hope it will keep him safe.
