If you’re looking for one of those ‘restore your faith in humanity’ stories, here you go.
Dashcam footage from the squad car caught (most) of this incident as it unfolded.
The situation began simply enough. A Florida state trooper was responding to a man (24yo Alexander Hernandez Delgado) who had been walking along a busy highway.
Dashcam video of the encounter shows the trooper informing the suspect, 24-year-old Alexander Hernandez Delgado, that he can’t walk on the interstate.
Delgado told the trooper that he’s an artist and was walking on the roadway because his mom kicked him out of the house, the trooper wrote in an arrest report.
“I then searched the subject and attempted to place him in the back of my patrol car. The subject became argumentative and stated that I am bothering him and that he would like to be left alone,” the trooper wrote in the report. “The subject then pulled away and then threw a punch with his left hand that [struck] me in the face.” —FoxNews
A struggle ensued, mostly offscreen. But what happened in those moments when they were not in the frame was amazing.
A vehicle pulled over. Than another. And another.
Motorists saw an officer was in a difficult situation and (literally) ran to help him.
By the end of this clip, there are something like four motorists standing in close proximity to the trooper and several other motorists who had stopped to see if their help was needed.
Yes, we still live in a broken world full of flawed people. But it’s good to know that there are at least some people left out there who are still looking out for someone besides just themselves.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
