With liberal networks constantly bombarding our senses with biased coverage on current events, how are we not to think things are worse than they are? Fortunately, when good things happen — like in this case of a helpful officer — there are ways to share positive experiences beyond the left-wing media.
Last week, Joseph Owusu, a Virginia Tech student, was driving home when one of his tires blew out. A State Trooper stopped and approached the young black male. What happens next is far from the narrative we’ve been so primed to expect.
Owusu’s mother, Nada Owusu shared about the incident on her Facebook page:
“Facebook friends, join me in expressing my gratitude to God and to Officer Matt Okes, a Virginia State Police officer. I took this picture at 2 a.m. in the middle of nowhere,” Dr. Nada Owusu posted on Facebook. “My son had his back tire blown off his car last night on his way home from school. This kind officer approached him, didn’t ask if the little Mercedes was stolen, but rather got on his knees to replace his tire.”
The pair were not successful in replacing the tire so they called AAA. Owusu’s parents drove to get him in the middle of the night and Officer Okes stayed with the family until they were able to safely drive off.

This is the type of story we rarely see in the mainstream media — an accurate portrait a police officer who joins the force to keep us safe.
