Police Officers Pull Over to Help With Boy's Tie
"Two Los Angeles police officers took time out from fighting crime to help a 14-year-old boy look his best on his first day of high school.
Officers Jonathan Maldonado and Alberto Ladesma were patrolling in the Boyle Heights neighborhood on Aug. 13 when a female driver and her son flagged them down.
`I saw the kid waving at me and the mother asked if I could help with his tie through her car window,` said Maldonado, a 10-year veteran with the Los Angeles Police Department`s Hollenbeck Division.
The officers pulled their patrol car over to help the boy who was rushing to get to Bishop Mora Salesian High School for orientation."
You don`t have to be a high school counselor, a social worker or a rocket scientist to realize that a 14-year-old kid who rides with his mom to school wearing a tie is going to be bullied unmercifully.
The police officers should have ripped up the kid`s tie and forced him to walk to school, schooling him not to be a mama`s boy.
They should have given the mother a ticket for flagging them down for such a frivolous reason. I can`t believe this incident happened in the City of Fallen Angels.
