Police Officer’s Final Act of Kindness Caught on Tape Before Dying

This story is so sad. Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack, a San Diego police officer performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.

Ex-Marine Officer  Jeremy Henwood, 36, stopped at the McDonald’s. Surveillance video shows Henwood speaking with a boy who apparently asked for 10 cents to buy cookies. The officer ended up buying lunch for the kid instead before leaving the store.

Shortly after , Henwood was shot while sitting inside his patrol car. Henwood had only made it six blocks from the McDonald’s; it would be the last place he was seen alive. The loss of this brave man, who served his country as a marine through several tours of duty and then served his community as a police officer, is tragic. But he left this world doing good.

    Im so sorry such a good man dies at a cowards hands.I grew up not liking cops only cuz my life, family n friends weren’t law abiding citizens but I always respected them n as I got older in n out of prisons I learned it takes a awesome human being to put his/her life on the line for ppl they dont even know. I feel so bad for him n his family, I hope they catch this PUNK, COWARDLY BITCH n give him street justice, all us criminals r not the same so from the bottom of my heart please accept my family’s n my condolences, thx u for ur bravery n service.

    Instant heartache for his family, friends and fellow Marine, the world today is so confusing and sad. This man was one of a kind, strong, amazing, courageous, loving and setting a wonderful example. The boy at the McDonald’s to everyone around him and all the strangers that he fought for. You are the example others need to follow and learn from. God bless you and your family, you will never be forgotten….RIP!

    Disculpen que escriba en Español pero creo que el sentimiento no tiene Idioma y en esta ocasión tan lamentable para todos nosotros como Personas ordinarias que somos protegidos por personas extraordinarias como el Héroe Jeremy Que se vistió de Marín y de Policía esto creo que las personas que lo conocieron de cerca que tuvieron la fortuna de ser miembros de su familia que admiraron a Jeremy como lo que fue un HEROE les quiero decir que mis palabras de condolencia dichas desde mi mas sincero sentimiento de unión con ustedes como familia tal vez no alcanzare a reconfortarlos porque perder a una persona como El es muy doloroso y difícil entenderlo y créanme mucha gente como yo que estamos a miles de kilómetros de distancia de ustedes nos unimos como una familia en su Dolor mi mas sentido pésame. Pero mas sin embargo les compartiré lo que yo como persona ordinaria común y corriente como lo son tantas personas por las que Jeremy lucho. Estamos Hoy llamados a convertirnos de ordinario y común y corriente en personas extraordinarias y dejar de ser comunes y corrientes y ahora tomar ese ejemplo de vida y servicio y AMOR al próximo como EL lo izo ., luchar por la libertad y proteger siendo serviciales para nuestros pueblos de manera que podremos entender el hecho de que Jeremy finalmente esta ofrendando su vida de servicio y AMOR al próximo como una manera mas en la que un HEROE puede servir es que si el no hubiera muerto yo que estoy a miles de Kilómetros de distancia no hubiera podido conocer a un ser Extraordinario como EL y ni hubiera podido tener el valor ni la convicción de ser como El o por lomemos intentarlo y es así pues que la vida de un HEROE como Jeremy aun después de morir a logrado que miles y mejor dicho Millones de Personas Inténtensenos ser como EL .Por eso Familia Henwood Gracias darle un HEROE al Mundo y Personas como EL al morir despiertan conciencias y esa es una misión que es solo un HEROE puede realizar ya que ya que se tiene que ofrendar la vida y estoy bien seguro de que Jeremy con valentía así lo decidió. QUE DIOS BENDIGA A AMERICA Y A LA FAMILIA HENWOOD

    There are many good people in this world, and this officer is certainly one of them. He served his duty in the military, and put his life on the line each and every day as a police officer to protect the public. So very sad that he died just after performing a good deed for the little boy! But, just think about how much that will influence this little boy throughout his life. I am sure this little boy will be successful (at the hands of this officer and our Heavenly Father) from the Spirit World! The officer and our Heavenly Father will watch over the little boy and help him in ways (you) probably will never understand while living on Earth. I am sure that the officer would never want to return to the Earth, even though he left at a young age.
    May God bless his family with love, compassion, and peace…a peace that passes all understanding!
