MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A kind act by two Memphis police officers is being shared on social media by someone who caught them in action.
Chris Bawcum snapped a picture of two MPD officers talking to a homeless man at the Sonic restaurant at Poplar Avenue and East Parkway. The story he told to go with the photo is what is grabbing people's attention.
The two officers--identified as Bryant Brooks and Brian Knowles--said what happened next is something they do every day, but it still caused Bawcum to tear up.
This simple act of kindness to someone in need as the holidays approach is just one way these two officers serve and protect their community.
