Cop says family are safe from gas leak, only for mom to see him stick around the play dolls with her kids

The police officers who serve in our great nation so often get a bad rep. Sometimes, admittedly, the criticism is warranted, but what many people forget is that the majority of these brave men and women risk their very lives each day in a bid to keep the rest of us safe.

Which is why I simply love stories like this one, wherein an officer proves that they’re great human beings.

It began when Iesha Roper-Boswell placed a call to report a gas leak in an apartment complex on Valentine’s Day. South Hill Police Cpl. C.B. Fleming was the officer to respond, though once he’d quieted Iesha’s fears, he went ahead and did something that would leave her on the verge of tears …

Valentine’s Day, 2019. Iesha Roper-Boswell had called in to report a gas leak at an apartment complex and it was Officer C.B. Fleming who answered that call.

Yet when he had completed his duty, he took the time before heading back out to go above and beyond.

As Iesha explained to WTVR: “I was telling him that my daughter, my niece, and some of the other children here were afraid of cops.

“So when he came and played with them, I captured that moment, not because I thought it would go viral, but it was amazing that my niece didn’t break out into tears.”

Officer Fleming showed he’s not just a dab hand when it comes to enforcing America’s laws, he’s also fairly decent when it comes to coloring and playing dolls!

The man himself, a 15-year veteran of the force, told WTVR: “When I got into this job, I knew there was something different, other than just writing tickets and being the bad person all the time,” “I figured if I could be that bright spot in someone’s day, then that’s all that mattered.”

“He’s awesome. That’s the only word you can really use to describe C.B.,” Iesha added. “It’s just amazing, the bond he has with the children.”
