Chicago Police Officer Buys Homeless Man a Meal at Chipotle
The act of kindness from one Chicago Police officer buying a homeless and hungry man a meal at Chipotle went viral.
DNAInfo reports that last Thursday, September 3rd, at a Lakeview Chipotle Chicago Police Sergeant Hagarty was sitting down for his lunch when he notice a homeless man outside digging in the dumpster for some food. The Sergeant motioned to the man if he were hungry to come inside. Once the young man came inside the Sergeant told the man to leave his belongings at his table and go up and order whatever he wanted and he, the Sergeant, would pay for it.
After ordering his food and paying for the meal the young man left and Sergeant Hagarty went back to his lunch. What he didn't know was a patron, Rachelle Mitchell, in the restaurant caught the whole thing on camera and sent the story along with the pictures to the country station, Big 95.5's facebook page. From there the story blew up and went viral.
When asked about his actions and act of kindness, Sergeant Hagarty ""He did not think he had done anything out of the ordinary. He did not want to brag about what he had done."
Wow! What a humble guy, serving the people on and off duty. His actions speaks volumes as to who he is.
I tend to agree with what Rachelle Mitchell has stated about this story, "With all the [crap] police are getting these days it reminds me there's so much more good out there than anyone ever wants to give credit," the post attributed to Rachel Mitchell read. "If everyone did something simple like this every day the world would be a better place."
A simple act of kindness really does go a long way.
Q98.5 is looking for good deed doers, and those simple acts of kindness. If you've witnessed someone doing just that, or you yourself has been the recipient of an act of kindness tell the Wake Up Crew about it. They want to reward the good deed doer with a tasty tray of treats from Mary's Market.
