The kind-hearted officer was not intending to leave Chy-Niece alone and with no brake light. It was time for plan B. The police officers’ method to Serve & Protect applied not only to crime but also to broken down vehicles.
In an NBC interview, Chy-Niece shared how the police officer insisted on escorting her to the nearest auto store. He asked her to put on her hazard lights and they were on their way.
Chy-Niece was relieved. There she had in front of her a police officer that turned into her savior. What would she have done if she wasn't pulled over in the first place? It was comforting to know that there were still good samaritans out there.
Did officer Jenkins really have the ability to fix the brake light? At first, there was no luck. He tried to solve the problem directly from the light socket, however, the light was not found. He then turned to the main light source of the car.
Sharing With the World
Chy-Niece detailed in her post how the nice officer instructed her to open the hood and check this and to check that and all she could think of was, is Jenkins going to make it?
Half an hour had gone by and still, there was no light, no solution, and the job interview Chy-Niece almost forgot about, was blurring out in the distance.
Calling for Disaster
Could you imagine driving behind someone with no brake lights? The car in front could be slowing down or unexpectedly stop, and by the time you would realize it, it could be too late.
Chy-Niece had the officer behind her and she felt safe. Car maintenance can be an expensive headache sometimes but she knew she couldn't neglect her car and this had to be done.
Leaving His Mark
When officer Jenkins first pulled Chy-Niece over, his initial intention was to assure she was safe and the other drivers on the road were safe too. Little did he know what a great impact he would have on her life.
He didn't realize how such a small action could turn into such a great deed and that if he wasn't in the right time at the right place, who knows how this would end?
