Boy Eating From Trash Is a Soul-Crushing Social Experiment
This is a most unusual attempt to entice people to become police officers.
New Zealand Police made this video it posted on its Facebook page in which a young boy on the street eats from a garbage can while other people look on. The police released a statement about the clip:
What would you do? Would you walk by and ignore him? Or would you stop to check if he is okay?…If you said you would have stopped, then you may be just the kind of person NZ Police is looking for.”
It’s a unique strategy for the force to employ.
We are looking for people who care about the people in their communities. People who will step in when they see someone who needs helps or is doing something that is unsafe. The kind of people we want to attract care about making a positive difference. With NZ Police there are many opportunities to turn that care into positive action.”
Even if you don’t aspire to work in law enforcement, the video is sure to catch your attention.
