I’m not law enforcement but the cops in my town had to arrest my mom on Christmas morning. I was 17 and my dad was already in prison. They knocked on the door and she went with them with no fight. They didn’t contact anyone because of my age, so I was completely alone on Christmas.
The arresting officer came back to my front door with tears coming down his face. He told me what was going to happen and what they arrested her for (embezzlement).
I could tell the mans heart was broken. He kept apologizing saying that it was just his job and he was so sorry. It turns out the whole 4 years she was in jail, that officer would look out for me triple time (due to the fact that my moms abusive ex was after me).
He is probably one of the best cops I’ve ever met. I’m grateful that he was the man that arrested her. He also arrested her ex when he broke into my house 2 weeks after. He set me up with a PFA and looked out for me. He changed my view on police completely.
