A now-viral Facebook post describes how a police officer helped an elderly woman in a big way, during an encounter at a gas station on Friday.
“An older woman came in my current station and gave me $3 in change to put in her gas station,” Seth Kazz, who Fox 4 is identified as a Citgo gas station owner in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, called.
Kazz added that a nearby officer was listening “and saw she was using a cane, struggling to walk back to her car.”
The officer, Kazz explained, and went out, and said that he would pump her gas itself.
“After a few minutes of getting to know each other, he realized she was really struggling and had no gas or money,” he said. “The $3 will only get her so far.”
The officer was not done, according to Kazz account: he went in and paid more for the woman gas.
“He went back and ready to pump and she told him that her husband died recently and she’s paying all the bills and is behind every month. This $20 really helped her!” Kazz said.

“Nowadays, there is so much negativity in the direction of the police. No one respects them,” Kazz wrote. “We hear all the complaints and the” bad ” stories. I’m not saying that every officer is perfect, I am sure that some of the debt on time. We all make mistakes – but we need to respect, appreciate and thank them for what they do.”
