This Toronto police officer was captured tying an older man’s shoe by Jason Cassidy, who posted the photo on Twitter.
Cassidy told the National Post at first he thought the cop was searching the man for drugs but snapped the photo when he realized the police officer was merely tying the senior’s shoe.
“I kind of went, oh my god. … I have to share this,” Cassidy told the Post. “We need positive stories like this that aren’t often in the media.”

Received a call from a gentleman that came home and found a child hiding under his dining room table. I asked if he found the child roaming outside and brought them in (which people often do), or whether the child was in his house when he got there. He advises the child was there when he came home. I asked whether it was a boy or a girl, and he said he didn't know. When asked how old the child was, he stated he believed it was about 12. I asked whether the child appeared injured, and he said he couldn't be sure, because he didn't want to go over and startle it, but that it only appeared scared. So I send the officers to check the welfare of this child. To make a weird call weirder, when I dispatch this, the officer says-
Officer: "Dispatch, is the child Asian?"
Me: "Ahhh, negative? Are we missing an Asian child?"
Officer: (mumbles)"....disregard. I'll check and advise."
About 15 minutes later, I get a system message from the officer.
Officer: "Reference run xxxx, just thought you'd like to know, there's no one here."
Me: "Oh, you mean the guy didn't answer his front door?"
Officer: "Oh no, he did. I mean he's standing here pointing under his table saying, 'see this kid?'...And I'm standing here looking , like 'I don't see anything....'
Caller: "Yes, I just pulled up outside my house and someone threw a corn cob at me."
Me: "Are you hurt?"
Me: "Is there damage to your vehicle?"
Me: "Was it intentional?"
Caller: "I don't know."
Me: "Well do you have a problem with those neighbors?"
Caller: "No, but I might now! Look, the evidence is all over my car and I want an officer to come see this! I need a report!"
Caller: "Can you guys go get my friend? He's pretty impaired and he's walking down the street."
Me: "Ok, what color shirt is he wearing?"
Caller: (pause) "He's not wearing one."
Me: "Ok, well does he have shorts or pants on, and what kind?"
Caller: "He's not wearing those either. So you really can't miss him. He's carrying a bottle of Jose. How many naked guys are walking down the street at 9pm?"
Me: "Hopefully not that many, but it is Friday night."
Caller: "Haha. Oh, and he may want to hurt himself too."
