This is me, all pumped up to get to Six Flags. I love roller coasters but once you’re on one it’s a different story. I’m screaming bloody murder! This lil girl is priceless.
This Ohio police officer went above and beyond his job description when he offered to drive a man that he pulled over more than 100 miles to his sister’s funeral.
When Mark Ross heard the news that his 15-year-old sister was killed in a car accident, he wanted to find a way to be with his family as fast as he could.
Ross did not have a vehicle, so he asked a friend to drive him from Indiana to Detroit, Michigan, WJW reported.
Ross wrote in a Facebook post that police pulled them over as they were speeding through Ohio to get to Detroit.
Ross wrote in the post:
“I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant.”
Ross was in the passenger seat when Trooper J. Davis pulled them over and arrested the driver for driving with a suspended license and on an outstanding warrant, Inside Edition reported.
The officer took the driver into custody and towed the vehicle, leaving Ross stranded in Ohio.
When Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison arrived, he offered to drive Ross more than 100 miles to his destination in Detroit.
“I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY,” Ross wrote. “He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy. He gave me hope.”
Robison kept his word and drove Ross to a coffee shop in Detroit where he could meet his cousin.
“It was just so overwhelming,” Ross told Inside Edition. “They were trying to help us.”
Ross and his family were grateful for Robison’s generosity and invited him to the funeral.
“He’s actually going to attend the funeral,” Ross said.
Ross’s Facebook post has gone viral; it has been shared more than 100,000 times since Sunday.
Why can’t all “the coppers” be like this guy. This guy is an angel and definitely raises the bar. Salute SGT Robinson!
Indeed, the turf war prompted the founding of the Compton Jr. Posse (CJP) that provides equestrian training, among other activities for young children, to keep them from joining one of the local crime syndicates.
The town’s horse riding credentials are more apparent on the weekends when on major thoroughfares across the Californian town you’re likely to find someone like Ivory McCloud decked out in his cowboy boots and hat, proudly riding his horse.
‘I’ve got 40 years in this, man,’ the 56-year-old horseman says exuberantly. ‘My dad was a cowboy. I’m a cowboy. I grew up in Compton. I live in Compton, and I’ve been training horses since I was a kid.’
Who knew Compton was a cowboy town?!

A Louisville, Kentucky, teenager spent the Labor Day holiday feeding the homeless, and one small act of his that day is inspiring people around the world.
LaRon Tunstill was with a group of volunteers handing out soup and hamburgers to homeless people when a man sitting on the corner sparked his interest.
“You could tell like he’s been hurt so many times,” Tunstill told CNN affiliate WAVE.
The 14-year-old started a conversation with the man and noticed his tattered shoes.
“The soles were completely gone,” said Jason Reynolds, founder of PurpMe, the nonprofit Tunstill was working with that day. “His toes literally touched the ground.”
Without hesitation, Tunstill took the brand new Nike Air Jordans off his feet and handed them to the man. He had owned the sneakers for only a day.
“At first he was like ‘no I can’t take these because these are too expensive.’” Tunstill told WAVE. “I told him, ‘take it’ because it’s what God wanted me to do.” Overwhelmed with gratitude, the man began to pray. That’s when Reynolds captured an image that has now been viewed online more than a million times.
The photo shows the man’s head bowed over clutched hands while Tunstill’s arm hovers over him in comfort.
The man appeared emotional in a video posted on PurpMe’s Facebook page.
“That’s crazy how one person and another person can be completely different,” he said in the video before his thought trailed off in silence.
“It was life-changing to see that powerful moment,” said Reynolds, still in awe of the exchange. “Just a year before, he (Tunstill) was getting into trouble and now you see that he’s changing.”
Crime surrounds Tunstill in the rough part of Louisville where he lives. At one point, Reynolds feared the young man was headed down the wrong path.
“Every day we see shooting. Kids robbing people, kids breaking in and vandalizing. It’s a lot right where we live,” Tunstill’s mother, Camille Carter, told WAVE.
“He used to get in a lot of trouble when I first met him,” said Reynolds. It wasn’t until Tunstill joined PurpMe that his life geared in another direction.
PurpMe was designed to help young people discover their purpose through encouragement. Reynolds said the nonprofit served as a vehicle for Tunstill to give his shoes away.
When Tunstill came home that day, his mother admits she was displeased to see him shoeless.
“At first I was upset because we just bought these shoes a day ago for him for school and then I just realized that’s what God told him to do,” said Carter to WAVE. “I’m very proud.”
Since then, a donor bought new shoes for Tunstill. Reyonlds created a GoFundMe page to support the PurpMe movement. One-hundred percent of funds raised will go to help children in the Louisville community.
“I always tell the kids one simple act is all it takes,” said Reynolds. “Maybe you can’t change the world but you can change someone’s world.”
