Getting the attention of the police is usually seen as an unhappy experience, but for one Boston driver, it was awesome.
A Boston police officer was so affected by a license plate he spotted that he pulled up to the car to tell the driver.
The officer had been thinking about a statue of Martin Richard that had just been unveiled at Bridgewater State University. Richard was the 8-year-old killed in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and a picture had circulated of him, after the tragedy, holding a hand-drawn sign asking for peace. When the officer suddenly spotted a car with a license plate that simply said “PEACE,” he just had to let the driver know what he thought about it.
“I was so impressed by the plate, I had to tell the operator. So, I pulled up next to the car and, before the operator could say anything, I said to him, ‘Listen, you’re not in trouble, I just wanted to tell you that I love your license plate,’” the officer said, according to a post on the Boston Police Department’s Facebook page.
“Why peace?” the officer asked.
“Why not?” the man, in his early sixties, responded.
