Police officer Jeremy Henwood used to be a Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was described by many as a kind man with a heart of gold who had done a lot for this country. His family was glad he was finally home, not assuming his life would end in a tragic manner.
He survived the hostile foreign lands, but his home country turned to be deadlier. This incredible man was shot while he was driving his car, for no reason.
Before he lost his life, he was at the local McDonald’s in San Diego where he showed his kindness one final time. As he was waiting in line, a 13-year-old boy named Daevon approached him and asked for 10 cents that he lacked to buy some food. Officer Henwood was more than happy to give him the money, and he even bought him the cookie he wanted. The whole thing was captured on the restaurant’s security camera and was shared after the officer lost his life a few miles from the restaurant.
When Daevon heard what happened, he was sad and felt like he lost someone very close. He said he will always remember how the officer stepped in for him. The family is mourning the loss of their loved one but say he will always be remembered as a kind-hearted man.
Thousands of people were present at his memorial service. Rest in peace Officer Henwood, you will never be forgotten.
