With the media constantly bombarding us day in and day out with a liberal narrative about how awful and racist police officers are, it’s always a real treat to see a positive story involving the men and women in blue.Michael Harris, a black man from Texas, was pulled over for a routine traffic stop when his daughter woke up from a nap and started to cry.
What happened next is truly beautiful.According to TheBlaze, During the traffic stop, Harris told officer Mike Collins that he is a concealed carry license holder and that he had a pistol in the car. Harris showed Collins his registration.
“I asked if he wanted to take it but he told me that wasn’t necessary,” Harris told WFAA.
Mikylie woke from her nap and overheard the conversation between the two men. She began to cry, Harris said, because she is scared of police officers.“She’s seen a lot of stories on the news and one time she asked me why black people and white people are killing each other, I didn’t know what to say,” Harris said.
Mikylie expressed concern Collins would hurt her father.
“I don’t want her to feel that way about police,” Harris said.The two men consoled Mikylie. Collins then showed Mikylie his patrol car, letting her play with the lights and giving her a sticker.
“It meant a lot to see him take the time,” Harris said.
Harris went on to state that he shared this incident with the media because he “wanted people to see black men and police officers getting along.”Officer Collins replied by saying, “Hearing ‘Thank you for doing your job’ meant so much. It’s a pleasure to see someone raising their children so well. It renews your hope in humanity. Mr. Harris is an excellent dad.”
While Harris ended up getting a ticket, he said it was worth it to have a chance to teach his daughter that “police officers are protectors.”
Mr. Harris should absolutely be applauded for his outstanding parenting skills and for showing Officer Collins such high respect and honor. He’s truly a class act.
Let’s hope Harris’ example starts to rub off on other Americans across the country.
