Police care -- for birds and us, too

Those of us in the public eye are used to opinions about how we do our job. Negative comments usually far outweigh positive ones. Recently, police departments across the country have been the subject of many negative comments.

That takes me to the experience I witnessed recently. On the way to work at Friends of the Festival, I saw a police car stopped in the middle of Manufacturers Road, lights ablaze.

As I slowly drove past, I noticed an officer standing in front of it, putting gloves on. On the ground, was a robin. As I looked in my rearview mirror, I saw him carefully picking up the bird and walking with it to nearby woods.
