An Undercover Police Officer Found Unexpected Kindness Instead Of Crime
After a few instances of thieves attacking people in wheelchairs recently, Staff Sgt. Mark Horsley went undercover as a disabled man on the streets in Vancouver's troubled Downtown Eastside. Much to his surprise, he discovered kindness and compassion instead of robbery.
Horsley went around with his money spilling from his waist wallet but people did not take advantage of him, but instead zipped up his pouch instead.
"Not one person took advantage of my vulnerability," Horsley said.
Horsley also had people pray for him as well as share stories of family members with disabilities.
"The people of the downtown are watching. They care and they take care of their vulnerable people," Horsley said.
Whenever he would give change to people and said that he couldn't count, not one person shorted Horsley change. He actually ended up with more money after people gave him their spare change!
"The generosity, the caring was inspiring," Horsley said.
