An officer in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was completely unaware that he was being caught on camera and those photos would eventually serve as evidence to prove what he had done.
Cody Remy was patrolling and saw a child struggling with a broken bicycle. He pulled his cruiser to the side of the road, and got out. What happened next has people talking all across the country.
He helped the youngster by fixing his bike.
Remy had no idea that anyone was watching – which is awesome to see in the middle of an era wrought with distrust between police officers and the citizens they are called to protect.
emy refused to admit that he had done anything special by committing this act. He was so adamant about it that the city’s mayor Bill Finch had to step in and give Cody Remy the credit he deserved.
“Officer Remy’s act of helping out a child in need in our community is a great example. He doesn’t think he did anything extraordinary. But I disagree. The picture speaks for itself. And, I’ll leave it up to others in our community and beyond to decide for themselves,” Finch said in a statement.
