For the second time in two weeks, I’ll start with a heartwarming, positive story about a police officer. In 2014, Raleigh Officer J.D. Boyd broke up an altercation involving a man named Cory Sanders. Sanders confronted Officer Boyd and swung at him with a knife; Boyd drew his pistol on Sanders. Sanders eventually surrendered and was charged with assault. This week, Boyd encountered Sanders again. Sanders apologized for his behavior and told Boyd that he was now working at a good job and was staying out of trouble. On social media, Boyd posted pictures of Sanders and himself and wrote “I was glad it ended well for us both that day, and I am ecstatic now to learn that he has turned his life around and we can embrace as friends.” A number of media outlets have the story, including WRAL here.
