Good Cop, Bad Cop, Great Day

by t5kal

Something really great happened in Quincy, California last month.

“Being a cop is tough.”
“Nobody’s ever happy to see you.”

So, these police officers decided to try to change people’s minds. They had a little help from their friends Wall’s Ice Cream.

The police officers pulled people over driving in Quincy for “being too serious.” It was great.

Greg Hagwood is the Plumas County Sheriff he’s been with the Sheriff’s department for 26 years. I think it’s safe to say this was one of his favorite days on the job.

Sheriff Hagwood and a few other police officers started out by pulling cars over. Then they walked up to the vehicle and asked, “Are you familiar with vehicle code 339472?” Obviously all the participants had no idea what he was talking about. He then asked, “How many people do we have on board?” The people were so confused when they answered the officers. The police officers excused themselves for a moment, went to their cars and came back with … ICE CREAM! What?!

The officers got all kinds of responses from the unknowing citizens, one girl was even in tears. The idea of surprising these random people throughout the day is such a great idea. I definitely wouldn’t mind if a police officer pulled me over for doing nothing wrong and then gave me ice cream. I don’t know about you but that would absolutely make my whole day!

I think I would be inspired to give out free ice cream to perfect strangers. Because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t like ice cream. Okay, okay minus people who are lactose intolerant. But, that’s why we have Sherbet.

The police officers in this awesome video weren’t just being kind to these random citizens. They were really trying to get a message across. It was basically the best Public Service Announcement. Here’s the lesson we all need to take from this video:

“People need to lighten up a little bit.”

But in this kid’s defense, it’s hard to do when this happens:

Wall’s Ice Cream has a pretty awesome YouTube channel that you can check out here. My favorite’s are “Funteruption” and “Wall’s Children’s Day.”
