Cop Rescues Child Abuse Victim—Then Goes Further

 

“That’s a measure of a man—and a very good police officer,” Poteau Police Chief Stephen Fruen says of Officer Jody Thompson. KFSM reports the Oklahoma police officer went above and beyond the call of duty by adopting the victim of a child abuse case. Back in 2015, Thompson and other officers found an 8-year-old boy tied up with rope and kept in a garbage can full of water in the shower. He wasn’t being fed and was covered in bruises.

Thompson took the boy to the hospital, stayed with him in intensive care, and eventually adopted him. “He’s the strongest person I’ve ever met,” Thompson says of his son John. “He means the world.” John is now a straight-A student in a gifted program at school. “He’s the reason why I’m here right now,” John says of his dad. But Thompson went even further with his good deed, adopting John’s biological sister shortly after she was born in a local jail.
