Teen takes guard duty for deputy pumping gas, and the story goes viral!

A Texas deputy’s story and photo about a teenager who stood guard in the rain to make sure she was safe is taking the Internet by storm.

With the execution-style murder of Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth still in the public mind,  Harris County Deputy Constable Tommi Jones Kelley wrote on her Facebook page that she had stopped to gas up her patrol vehicle when teenager Mckinley Zoellner asked her, “ma’am, do u mind if I stand here behind you while u get ur gas?”

When Kelly asked why, the boy answered, “to make sure You stay safe!” she posted.

The selfie she took of the two of them, together with her story of the encounter, has since gone over-the-top viral.

Here’s the post:

Ok, so EARLY this morning I was pumping gas in my patrol car (reason I look like a Hot Mess!)…& add it was pouring…

Posted by Tommi Jones Kelley on Thursday, September 3, 2015

That post has been shared more than 180,000 times.

Given that Kelly’s colleague, Deputy Goforth, was shot in the back of the head, allegedly while he was filling his own vehicle, Zoellner’s gesture meant the world to her.

Career criminal Shannon Miles, 30, is alleged to have crept up behind Goforth and emptied his gun on the deputy.

Miles was arrested Aug. 29, the day after the murder, and charged with capital murder.

When Kelly finished filling the tank, she said Zoellner “was still standing there, in the rain.” He then walked off and hopped into the passenger side of another vehicle.

Kelly approached the boy’s mother, and said, “she has an amazing son & she said he wanted to make sure no one hurt me.”

Very amazing, and in today’s anti-police climate, very cool.

Social media uses were thrilled.

    It’s on video, there is nothing “alleged”, he clearly did it.

    This is proof that the young can do wonderful things as exemplified by famous talk show, Mark Levin.

    When I first heard about this article I thought they were talking about a Black kid watching her back, why it went viral? But when I seen it was a White kid, I wondered why this made such big news, there are many thousands of White kids that would do this. Even so, much praise & respect for McKinley Zoelnner for being such a great person.

    The more we show police hat we have their backs the less they will see us as the enemy. Police academies are teaching that we are all the enemy and we have to show different.

    Actually that social responsible young man isn’t the only one in Harris County trying to protect our police officers from cowards that might try to attack them from behind. Most of the time, an officer probably wouldn’t realize that’s what’s going on.

    This is what it comes to black lives only seem to matter when they are criminals and are attacking Caucasian police officers, so citizens have to watch their backs.
    PS:Want proof that black lives do not matter unless it stirs hatred and unrest, I submit the following cities as examples and evidence: Chicago, Detroit, Camden, St Louis. When its blacks harming or murdering blacks none of the usual suspects(obama, holder[now lynch], sharpton, jackson, or farrakahn) seem to be near a microphone or TV camera crew

    Oh yay a white kid who has no reason to despise racist kkkops doesnt despise racist kkkops white ppl with no understanding of their history of being protected by and using kkkops to harm Black ppl cheer him on for doing nothing. White ppl are stull racist trash with racist institutions to back the
    Up. My mom is white with 3 half Black kids and she’s as racist as they come.

    My middle daughter is a patrol officer for a municipality. She called me a while ago and said she was in the middle of a traffic stop tonight when a local transit officer pulled up behind her and asked if it was okay if she waited there until my daughter finished the traffic stop. My daughter was grateful and the transit officer just said, “We need to watch out for each other”. May God bless that woman and every decent person who prays and worries and cares about the human beings who also just happen to be law enforcement officers.

    There are lots of young who are as good Americans as this young man. Unfortunately, it seems if the press focuses more on the scumbags ie. Travon Martin and that fat fu*k Brown
