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,” Kips shared. “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 [ourselves]. Violence sells and always will.
“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. Your TV will usually only show the bad cop abusing their power or an unfortunate situation.”
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.”
