    Police Officer Michael Castillo has been praised for stopping to help a group of young boys fix a broken bicycle.

    Police Officer Michael Castillo, 27, was working in Connecticut on Monday when he was called to a local Target store after reports of a fight.
    When he arrived he saw a group of young boys he recognised from the neighbourhood with bikes out the front of the store.
    Noticing a chain on one of the boys’ bikes was twisted, Mr Castillo stopped, turned the bike over and began to fix it.

    What a lovely guy. :) It's nice to see good cops recognized for being decent human beings, these young boys will remember his kindness.

    Thanks for posting this PrimeSupsect! It is refreshing to see this type of interaction between a police officer and kids. I'm sure it happens all the time I just don't see it because, of course, positive feel good stuff like this isn't a priority when it comes to reporting. (moo)

    IMO, it is kind acts such as this from a police officer that can help to improve the views/attitudes towards LEO's as a whole, of not just kids but adults alike. Seeing a police officer doing a simple kind act or even better, experiencing such an interaction like these kids did, can really help to show that contrary to what we see/hear (on a regular basis) regarding the conduct of LEO's today, there are far more good LEO's out there than not.
    (sorry for the mega run on sentence..:cup:
    need coffee already)

    We could use a lot more reporting on the good LEO's like Mr. Castillo. I predict that Mr. Castillo is going to have a very successful career in law enforcement and I wish him the best.
