Instead of Arrest, Officer Drives Man Over 100 Miles to Be With His Grieving Family
A simple, yet extraordinary act of compassion made a difference in the lives of a grief-stricken family, but most people won’t be reading about it because it doesn’t support the liberal narrative of racist cops hunting down innocent black men.
It isn’t true on the streets and it wasn’t true along an Ohio highway as a man was speeding home to his family after learning that his 15-year-old sister had been killed in a car accident.
Mark Ross asked a friend to drive him home to his mother in Detroit, but was stranded after the friend was stopping for speeding.
With his friend taken into custody, the car towed and a Michigan warrant open for his arrest on a misdemeanor, the overwhelmed Ross finally cracked.
What happened then stunned the man who was no fan of law enforcement officers.
One of the officers on scene, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. David Robison, decided to take matters into his own hands and simply do the right thing, the compassionate thing. He drove Ross home to his mother.
“I explained to the officer that my sister had died and that I needed to get to my mother asap. I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY. He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy. He gave me hope.”
Ross’s Facebook post – with the selfie of Ross and Robinson – went viral on social media with the message of empathy and kindness reaching over 100,000, but the news media pushing the themes of anger, division and hatred is silent on the story of hope that unfolded on that Ohio highway.
