Hannah Duvall, of Tallahassee, Florida, had pulled into a convenience store gas station when she spotted something very unusual. There was a police officer standing next to the store and it LOOKED like he was shaving another man.
A few minutes later, the officer went into the store, and Hannah followed him in. A minute later, the two started talking about what he was just doing outside with that other man. The officer told Hannah that a short while ago, he was at the McDonald’s next door, and a scruffy looking guy walked in, and he was homeless. He asked management there if he could have a job, to help him get his life in order.
But the manager there told him there was no way he could work there because of his facial hair. So the officer walked up to the homeless man and asked if he would come with him next door to the convenience store. Once there, the officer bought some clippers, stood outside with the man, and shaved off his facial hair.
#MustSee #MorePureAwesomeness We thought the picture was awesome, well here’s THE VIDEO of Officer Carlson helping one of our citizens. #TPD #Tallahassee THE STORY AS TOLD BY THE CITIZEN SUBMITTING THE INFORMATION: “My daughter just sent me this picture and called to tell me the story, I had to share….she went to the gas station and saw this officer shaving a homeless man's beard. A minute later the officer went into the store and Hannah walked in after him and saw him cleaning himself up because he was hot and sweaty. She offered to buy him a drink and got talking. Apparently the officer was at McDonald's next door and this gentleman went in looking for a job. He was told they wouldn't hire him unless he shaved his beard. So the officer went and got some clippers and shaved the man's beard so he could go back and get a job! I am so proud to live in a community where our deputies and officers are such wonderful people. Good job Tallahassee Police Department!!! ❤”Posted by City of Tallahassee Police Department on Sunday, 22 July 2018
The man then walked back over to McDonald’s to see about that job. After hearing the officer’s story, Hannah felt so proud of her police department…as well she should be.
#UPDATE We talked to Phil today! He’s doing great & enjoying his new job at @McDonalds. We received some gift cards for various restaurants from a former TPD officer to give to Phil. Officer Carlson is pictured here giving Phil the gift cards. #TeamPhil #KindnessChallenge pic.twitter.com/qcg32K5Ryo— Tallahassee Police (@TallyPD) August 1, 2018
