- Michael Rivers was on duty when he spotted a homeless woman he did not know
- The policeman who has served for nine years said he knows nearly all homeless people in his community
- Rivers approached Michelle and asked her whether she had had a meal
- The young man then proceeded to buy some pizza and drinks which he shared with the mother of one
Not only did the selfless cop give the lady his attention and time but he also provided the starving woman with a decent meal of pizza and some drinks.
According to CNN, Michael Rivers who has been in the force for nine years knows nearly all homeless people in his community.
However, while he was driving on the streets, he spotted an unfamiliar face and decided to engage her in a conversation.
The lady was wearing a shirt that read “Homeless. The fastest way to become a nobody,” and that made Michael’s heart sink immediately.
The 29-year-old police officer said God talked to him and asked him to buy the woman lunch because she was starving.
“God put it on my heart to get her lunch. So, I turned around and I asked her, 'Hey, did you eat today?’” He narrated.
Immediately, the kind police officer ran to a nearby fast food shop and got a pepperoni and cheese pizza then sat with the lady before digging in.
The two talked like old friends for nearly an hour and Michael did not mind sitting on the bare ground throughout their interaction.
The cop said Michelle, the homeless lady, was a mother to a little girl who was unwell.
When a passerby spotted the heartwarming moment, he took a photo and posted the picture on Facebook captioned with praises for Michael.
In other news, police officers are often painted in a bad light, but the truth is that there are many who take their vow to serve and protect the people seriously.
One female South African police officer was photographed giving food to a needy man and the image was shared on the #ImStaying Facebook group by social media user Noma Loliwe.
