When Officer Approaches Black Teen In McDonalds, A Photographer Captured The Exchange

An image of a heartwarming exchange involving a police officer and a black teenager at a McDonald’s in Texas has gone viral.

The picture shows the officer buying the teenager’s meal. Although the teenager, who is seen wearing a maroon-coloured shirt, had his wallet out, the officer – identified as Michael Calhoun, a Brazos County Sheriff’s Office deputy – told the kid that he could put his wallet away and get whatever he wanted.

The sheriff offered:

“No man, I got it…Get what you want.”

Delarosa’s picture has been shared more than 2,000 times in the first two days of being posted on the popular social media network.
