Police Officer Playing Hopscotch Goes Viral

A touching video showing a Huntington Beach police officer playing hopscotch with a homeless girl while another policeman makes housing arrangements for her mother has gone viral.

The officers were initially dispatched to the area of Graham Street and Edinger Avenue Wednesday morning to check out a “suspicious occupied vehicle,” the Huntington Beach Police Department posted on Facebook.

When they checked inside the car, however, they learned that the occupants were a mother and her 11-year-old daughter, according to the post. The two were homeless and had been living in the vehicle.

One of the officers contacted the department’s Homeless Task Force to help make housing arrangements for the pair, and began discussing them with the mother.

    I am learning how many police can be helpful. I know they have a tough job and many go above and beyond duty. It is the few that push the line and try to be so bossy and aggressive that not only give police a bad rap but cause lots of trouble. They are to serve and protect not be judges and sentence givers to the public. We need to acknowledge the ones that are doing their job in a kind manner in spite of some of the public not knowing or not caring about others. We need our kids to be seeing the good side of those that have to do the difficult job of dealing with the public. It is really difficult to deal with some people that are ignorant of and do not care for others.
