Unlike many people think, the truth is that it’s not easy to be a police officer. Not easy at all.
Being a police officer is a stressful job, as the work involves dealing with hostile people and difficult situations, and the threat of injury is a constant one.
We’ve witnessed people do gods work. And we should never judge a book by its cover. Some people with muscles have a heart of gold, while others can be skinny sociopaths in suit and ties.
What happened to Sergeant Randy Harkness is unfair…
Sergeant Randy Harkness from Dawson County, Georgia, saw a homeless man begging for money at the corner of a street. He felt compassion for the man, and decided to give him a ride to the nearest gas station and hand him some money for food. But once the homeless man entered the vehicle, he started attacking Harkness. He was hitting him and scratching his face like a lunatic. Sergeant Randy wasn’t expecting that behavior at all, and left him in complete shock. During the attack, he injured his face and wasn’t about to stop till something worse happened.
All of a sudden a bystander noticed that attack and decided to act swiftly. She was legally carrying a firearm and rushed toward the sergeant. She fired one shot and the homeless man started running, but with the second shot she hit the suspect.
Randy Harkness was so glad that there was someone at the scene to help him and risk their life to save him.
The Dawson County Sheriff called the woman a hero.
“I TRULY BELIEVE THAT SHE’S A HERO,” SHERIFF JEFF JOHNSON TOLD FOX 5 ATLANTA. “I BELIEVE THAT SHE POTENTIALLY SAVED THIS OFFICER’S LIFE. WE DON’T KNOW HOW FAR THE SUSPECT WOULD HAVE WENT WITH THE ASSAULT.”
The woman acted and helped a police officer that was hurt, and was possibly going to end up worse. She is unlikely going to be charged with using firearm, but the incident was still under investigation.
