Police Officer Quietly Buys Food At Chipotle For Man In Need
The humble sergeant thought nobody would know about the kind act.
When he saw a man in need, this humble cop decided to help without expecting any recognition in return.
Sgt. Brendan Hagarty of the Chicago Police Department in Illinois was having lunch at a Chipotle restaurant in early September when he saw a man picking through the trash outside, Hagarty told The Huffington Post. The officer tapped on the window to get the man’s attention, ushered him inside and bought him food.
The interaction was caught on camera by Rachel Mitchell, who posted it to Facebook. It later went viral when a country music radio station, as well as Hagarty’s own department shared the posts. The pictures have received more than 10,000 shares and over 26,000 likes on the police department’s Facebook page alone.
