Kip Moore doesn’t hesitate to share his feelings on the world he sees around him and is always anxious to give credit where it’s due. That’s why he recently shared a post to Instagram recognizing police officer William Stacy, who caught Helen Johnson stealing five eggs at a Dollar General store to feed her family. Instead of arresting her, the Tarrant, Alabama, officer bought her eggs and then took a truckload of groceries to the grandmother and her family.

Kip loved the story and jumped at the chance to share some positive news and salute a police officer who went beyond the call of duty to help someone in need.

I realize there's a lot of bad in this world, and that's one thing media will always shove down our throats over and over. It's a business like anything else that plays off our emotions. Things get posted or played a million times on your tv which causes outrage and all of us to fight amongst ourself. Violence sells and always will. Once again, yes I know there's injustice all around us and I pray for peace and healing on that front everyday. I'm also aware that there's so much good taking place every single day, but most of those things you'll never see. Your tv will usually only show the bad cop abusing their power or an unfortunate situation before providing the true details of what happened. I picked up a man carrying groceries today and drove him around a couple miles to his house (not to boast cause I do that regularly wo telling anyone..but to make a point). We shared some laughs and embraced as I dropped him off. He had love for me and I'm white. I had love for him and he's black. I'm not alone in that feeling…there's so many ethnicities all taking care of each other and that gives me hope. If I focused on the media and what I constantly see with the hate on Instagram, I would simply loose my mind. William I say good on y'a bud and to all the cops out there striving to make our cities and communities safe I say thank you a bunch. I appreciate the hell out of you guys. You have such an important yet thankless job way too often. Cheers to all the officers out there doing good every single day

“Yes, I know there’s injustice all around us and I pray for peace and healing on that front every day,” he added. “I’m also aware that there’s so much good taking place every single day, but most of those things you’ll never see.

Officer Stacy’s compassion definitely caught Kip’s attention. “William I say good on ya bud,” he wrote. “And to all the cops out there striving to make our cities and communities safe, I say thank you a bunch. I appreciate the hell out of you guys. You have such an important, yet thankless job, way too often. Cheers to all the officers out there doing good every single day.”
