Ex-Convict confronts officer that arrested him and the result was UNFORGETTABLE!

An ex-convict met up with the police officer who arrested him, and the result was not what some might have expected.

Texas City Officer Salvador Chapa was at a barbecue Saturday when he was approached by Doc Amey, who was arrested by Chapa on a gun charge eight years ago.

He got out after serving a year and half. Has graduated bible college with perfect attendance and his strong in his church. This man wanted to pray for the officers safety. We should be seeing more of this in America. There shouldn’t be race involved and this is living proof that color doesn’t matter. This is a prime example. All lives matter ONE NATION UNDER GOD! prayers to your brother and I pray for you. Continue of your path brother thank you for saying a prayer for my brother.

Chapa told ABC 13 that he’s happy the picture has gone viral and hopes it helps people to see police in a positive light.

“After seeing the picture getting posted and all, I was overwhelmed but at the same time I was happy it happened,” he said. “I hope whoever views it looks at police in a different aspect. We’re here to help everybody.”
