Police officer buys food for family caught shoplifting

Before Christmas, the family said they were experiencing hard times and could not afford to pay for all of their food, but still wanted to provide a nice meal for their children.



Officer Matt Lima was called to a grocery store in Somerset, Massachusetts where two women were reportedly scanning some – but not all – of their groceries at a self-checkout kiosk. 

But, instead of arresting them, he decided to pay for their food. 

Shortly before Christmas, the family said they were experiencing hard times and could not afford to pay for all of their food, but still wanted to provide a nice meal for their children

Lima served when with a “no trespass” order, then bought them a gift card worth $250 so they could buy the items needed for Christmas dinner at another store location. 

He did so out of the kindness of his own heart. 

“The two children with the women reminded me of my kids, so I had to help them out,” Lima said in an interview with WPTV. 

“They were very thankful, they were kind of shocked. I’m sure a lot of people in that same situation would be thinking that there was going to be a different outcome, and maybe they would be arrested or have to go to court,” he added.

“I bought the gift card close in value to what would’ve been taken.” 

He said that he felt for the family and did what he felt was right. 

“I just did what I felt was right,” he said. “It’s not about me, I just tried to put myself in that family’s shoes and show a little bit of empathy.”

    This act of kindness is what America is all about. So, thank you Officer Lima. Please know that most of us salute you and are not at all about defunding law enforcement.

    God bless you.

    A fine example that most officers care about the community and people they serve. Considering the modest incomes of law enforcement officers, this was a most generous gesture and in my mind should be given a community hero award. Sadly, most mainstream liberal media will not cover this story.

    Heartwarming, God’s work. Often Law enforcement offices help ppl but we don’t hear about it.

    Just remember, the cop was entirely wrong. He was not there to enforce his feelings or morals. He was there to enforce the law. When cops don’t even enforce the law, why does anyone expect anyone else to obey or enforce the law. Yeah, kind of him. Yeah, heartwarming Storyline. But in a society crumbling due to lack of law and order…. the cops not even setting the example. Fire him!

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one




In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes




Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
