Another police "incident" worth noting

Miami-Dade police officer Jose DeLeon was on a call at the Miami Greyhound Bus Station near the airport when he saw a man and his wife and their four children (including a baby) looking distressed. The man told Officer DeLeon he came to Florida from Michigan to work as a cook, but the job fell through and his family had been kicked out of their south-Florida relatives home. They had no money, food or shelter, or tickets to return to Michigan.

So Officer DeLeon rallied his fellow officers for help. They all chipped in with personal funds and gave their donations to the mother. She cried, and the father started to cry, but then the officers got the family to the Chapman Project Homeless Center for the rest of the weekend. The people at Chapman secured plane tickets to get the family back to Michigan on Monday.
