Another "police incident" worth knowing about

Eleven-year-old Tontrevion Campbell of Memphis, TN, and his mom were at church when thieves broke into their home. Items missing included his Xbox and the video games he loves to play. When police investigated, they asked Tontrevion if he'd get a new Xbox for Christmas. He said he wouldn't ask him mom for one, because "all the money she makes goes to pay the bills." Back at the station, the officers told his story, and fellow officers chipped in to buy a replacement.

When the store manager learned why police were buying an Xbox, he donated an extra controller so two friends can play together. The investigating officers returned to the Campbell home with the Xbox and asked Tontrevion if it was the one he lost. "No sir," the boy said. "Mine was older." Then they revealed the new one was for him, which moved him and his mother to tears.
