A Christmas Story of a Good Cop

Okay, here's a story that puts me in the Christmas spirit as I wait for Santa's reindeer overhead:

A police officer got a Christmas bonus of $3,000 from homeless people who wanted to thank him for standing up for them.

Officer Eduardo Delacruz was suspended for 30 days without pay last month after he refused a sergeant's order to arrest a homeless man found sleeping in a garage.

In gratitude, organizations for the homeless put together the fund for the 37-year-old officer, his wife and their five children. Homeless people also contributed change scrounged from passers-by, money earned from recycling cans and bottles, even a portion of their welfare checks.

It's a sad reminder that those with the least in our society are still treated as criminals. But it's nice to see that there are folks like Officer Delacruz who will resist orders to do evil. He deserved every penny and every blessing.
