Cop's photo with man who tried to stab him last year goes viral: I am ecstatic now to learn that he

Source: NY Daily News

A North Carolina cop's uplifting Facebook photo showing his run-in with a man who tried to stab him last year has gone viral.

Raleigh Police Officer JD Boyd took to Facebook after randomly reuniting with a former suspect who nearly killed him, posting an image of the two new pals grinning side-by-side along with a touching message.

"Almost a year ago this man and I were involved in a major altercation where he tried to stab me in the head and I nearly shot him," he wrote in the post. "Today we ran into each other again."

The cop, who's seen in uniform with his arms around an unidentified man, said he learned the man changed his ways after serving time in prison.

1. Yes, Thanks for posting this.

With all the hate and fear, yes this cop could have killed this fellow, and he would have been.."justified"

But he chose not to.


.that is a very good story.

2. This...

"No one is ever lost forever and as long as you continue to work to be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday things will work out eventually," the officer wrote.


No truer words....

4. I'm shocked that he got less than a year in jail for trying to stab a cop in the head

 

I'm glad it worked however. He seems like he really changed. Sometimes, all it takes is one scare.
