Very nice gesture on the part of the cops. However, what's missing from the article is why the cop stopped the motorist in the first place. Was it because the children weren't in car seats or was there some other violation? Also, since the motorist had been pulled over before, an argument could be made that the cop was targeting the motorist.
Many people bad mouth the poor as though they are defective human beings; lazy, good for nothings; just wanting free stuff. However, many of these same people will support government policies that increase poverty i.e. outsourcing of jobs, using property taxes to finance public education, no or low minimum wage, etc.
