Officer lets teens do push ups to avoid jail time {VIDEO}

Officer lets teens do push ups to avoid jail time news 1x1.trans

A Texas police officer is going viral, and this time it’s for good reasons.

Arlington Officer Eric Ball was working security on Tuesday for a Cinemark when he was made aware of a teenager smoking marijuana near the front door.
“I asked him to come here,” Ball said. “When he noticed I was an officer, he came walking toward me. But he dropped something in his hand.”
He told the teenager that he was facing a misdemeanor citation and fines, saying, “You out here in front of the door smoking weed. What are you thinking? That was dumb. So you’re going to go to jail for something dumb today.”
But rather than take the teen to jail, Ball decided to ask the teen to do 200 push ups instead in a move inspired by his own high school mentor, also a police officer.
“The officer who was my mentor, he looked out for me,” Ball said. “So I just wanted to do it as a learning tool.”
“It’s easy to arrest folks,” Ball said. “But it’s harder to change someone.”
The whole thing was captured on video by a mother nearby, who said in the video, “We think the police is so bad. They’re not all bad.”

HandsomeMan. I disn't say that in disrespect for Mr1. What I am saying is overall, it starts in the home. Regardless of how many viewers feel about other viewers, this is just an opinion wall, blog. The real message to the comment is, if everyone has a role model in their lives to steer them right from wrong, 9 times out of ten, you get through but, without that menaces are born. We all definitely have had it in is to go left growing up but if our leadership was weak, then we will grow up weak minded. So my message was not a negative, it was just merely a question. I feel overall that it is sad for a police officer to just go the route of arresting a teenage on GP, without even giving a chance of redemption. Some are good aren't just got caught up. However, when the chance is given and it is taken for granted, then reap what you sow. Too late now. And I say this because we all know teenagers that will go through the challenges of life but for those who continue, it is a long way to find your way back. Happy New years to all bloggers!

School him Sista.
Dude talk like he was a perfect kid, but if he had good parenting there would never have been guns in his possession. Using his words lmfao

Good job. Mr1 Strike. It made you a better person today because of past mistakes right? It starts at home but if a parent already lost their child to the streets, the outcome will almost always be different. Not good!

GOOD STUFF: I agree mr1stroke...
Discipline is a MUST and it should start at home. It could have been a different outcome if the officer wasn't nice enough to give him a pass.

another example of what it means when your kids have a father, he is a nice cop, teaching that little mufucker discipline, if your kids smoke you should know, if you dont know than you are not doing your job as a parent, there is always a clue, my mother and grand mother found weed and guns in my room where i didnt think they would look when i was young so you can do it too, next time he might not be so lucky he will catch his first case
