After two robberies of wheelchair-bound people that were carried out at knifepoint, a Vancouver police officer went undercover as a paralyzed man in a wheelchair with brain injury.
Much to his surprise, instead of being victimized, he saw repeated displays of human kindness in this rough neighborhood.
Sometimes he asked people to buy something for him, to see if they would steal his money. At the end of the operation, the officer had $24.75 more than he started with. People chose to give rather than steal.
We usually see news stories about people doing bad things, but those aren’t the only stories.
The reality is that there are lot of kind people in the world who treat others with respect and consideration.
