Little boy’s kindness brings big, burly cop to near tears at Dunkin Donuts

Sometimes the smallest gestures make the biggest impressions.

One young boy brought a veteran Florida policeman to near tears after he insisted on picking up the officer’s Dunkin’ Donuts tab.

Broward County Deputy Donnie Jackson said e declined the friendly offer at first. But the boy’s parents insisted, saying as soon as Jackson walked into the restaurant, their son said he wanted to buy him breakfast because he appreciated the “thankless job” officers do.

The Broward Sheriff’s office shared Jackson’s story on Facebook Sunday.

“With so much negative attention around law enforcement, we were so happy to see this,” the Broward post began.

The story was featured on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, where the boy and his family received a lot of praise.

Jackson agreed that the parents deserve a lot of credit.

“It’s a good thing I had on my Oakley’s because I really teared up,” Jackson said on Facebook. “In closing, I really appreciated this kind act by this kid and the fine qualities being instilled in him by his parents!”

It turns out that Jackson is truly a hero among heroes. Fox reported that in 2003 Jackson saved two young boys from a car wreck. And now, a young boy made the officer’s day, lifting him up just when it seemed he really needed it.
