Officer Henwood's Final Act of Kindness

What are the chances of not being killed in a war zone? Life is too risky especially if you are in a tour of duty assigned in Iraq or Afghanistan. The picture below is Jeremy Henwood, a Captain in the Marine Corps Reserves, a 36 years old, served three tours of duty. He came back to US mainland safe and he served as a police officer for four years in San Diego Police Department.He was shot and killed last Aug.6, 2011. This incident gives us a lesson that no matter where we are, there is danger. He did not die in the hands of the enemy in Afghanistan or Iraq. He died here in the safe land of the US. When they traced back where he was, the most remarkable surveillance video was viewed! He was seen with a stranger boy going inside McDonald's and the final act of kindness was he bought him cookies! The boy was later interviewed that he approached Officer Henwood and asked for 10 cents. Officer Henwood asked him what he would do for 10 cents and he replied he would buy a cookie. The Officer said he will not give him 10 cents instead, he will buy him cookies. The boy further said that the Officer advised him with the importance of hard work since the boy told the officer that he wanted to become an NBA when he grow up. Less than 5 minutes later, 6 blocks from Mc Donalds, a suicidal man pulled on the side of Officer Henwood's car and shot him with a shotgun with NO REASONS at all. He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Officer Jeremy Henwood died at dawn time the next day. A good man , a good deed and the final act of kindness. May he rest in peace!
