CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer’s act of kindness is the subject of a new video that’s going viral on Facebook.
The video was posted by Officer Bob Osborne, who says he took the video of his partner Officer Peter White.
Osborne tells WGN they ticketed the man for blocking traffic off of the Eisenhower Expressway during rush hour. He was begging in the middle of the street.
“He had a thin little jacket so Pete promised him that he would bring him his old coat. When we finally saw him again Pete gave him his coat,” Osborne wrote in the Facebook post. “See Pete White you are not such a bad guy. CPD is the best!”
In less than 24 hours, the video has been viewed over 80,000 times.
