A loyal reader in Plymouth, Indiana...

...contributed today's Crumb. A police team from Homestead, PA, near Pittsburgh, are regular diners at the Eat n' Park restaurant. They were waiting for their meal recently when a couple entered the restaurant and refused to be seated at a table next to the officers. This may have been due to tension toward law enforcement following police shootings. One of the officers assured the couple there was nothing to worry about, but the patrons decided to sit on the other side of the restaurant.

Instead of bearing a grudge, the officers decided to pay the disgrunted patron's $29 tab and add a $10 tip for their waitress.  This finally led to a smile and a thank-you.  Officer Chuck Thomas explained their generosity. "We work the the public," he said, "and we just want to better the relationship between the community and the police."
