You know who I think he's helping?

You know who I think he's helping?

The Sheinkeit Lady. I hope she was nicer to him than she is to us.

OK so I will get bashed for this….but isn’t this “kindness” expected behavior, esp for a public servant? Why is it so mind blowing? Yes, it’s a nice picture, yes he’s doing a good thing….but are we all so selfish & insensitive we see this kind of thing as the exception rather than the norm?

If the answer is yes, we are all in a very bad way.

When I saw the pix I was pleasantly impressed, & wondered if the Officer was Jewish. Sure enough he is Mark Meyers!

Sounds Jewish to me, & if so.. a Kiddush HaShem indeed.

BS”D to # 4 would you have done it
If you bash a non well lady than indications are you would not help a person in distress.Your expertise is criticism

BS”D # 13 read the following quote from # 4
“You know who I think he’s helping?
The Sheinkeit Lady. I hope she was nicer to him than she is to us.” If that is not bashing tell me what it is. And read a few others

So nice!

New York’s finest.
To #4 – I don’t think “helping old ladies across the street” is a requirement of his job. Why are you giving him a hard time for doing what many of us wouldn’t think of doing for whatever the reason?

Very Touching

Why bash something so obviously touching? Could it be that some people simply enjoy negativity? One wonders what they’ll have to say when they’re in their Golden Years. (May they tykeh be golden…)
