View Full Version : I saw this inspiring story on Facebook yesterday.

The woman on the left is a mother from
Miami who was so desperate to feed her
hungry family that she was trying to steal
a lot of food

The woman on the right is Miami-Dade
County Police Officer Vicki Thomas.
Officer Thomas was about to arrest
Jessica Robles but changed her mind at
the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought
Robles $100 worth of groceries
"I made the decision to buy her some
groceries because arresting her wasn't
going to solve the problem with her
children being hungry
And there's no denying they were hungry
Robles' 12 year old daughter started
crying when she told local TV station
WSWSV how dire their situation was:
"It's not fun to see my brother in the dirt
hungry, asking for food, and we have to
tell him, 'There is nothing here"
Officer Thomas says she has no question
that what she did was right:
To see them go through the bags when
we brought them in, it was like Christmas.
That $100 to me was worth it."
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
The only thing I asked of her is, when she
gets on her feet, that she help someone
else out. And she said she would."
And guess what? The story gets even
better. Moved aboot about what happened

After word got out about what happened:yeah:
people donated another S700 for Jessica
Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business
owner invited her in or an interview and
ended up hiring her on the spot as a
customer service rep
She started crying when he told her:
"There's no words how grateful I am that
you took your time and helped somebody
out. Especially somebody like me."
And to think it all started with one veteran
police officer trusting her "instinct"
instead of going by the book".
