This Police Force Is Trying To Change The Way People View Cops, One Ticket At A Time

                          <div class="content">                    <h3>Canadians are known for being polite, but what this police force is doing takes things to the next level. What's better, they're helping to change the way people around the world perceive cops.</h3> It's no secret that the reputation of cops is struggling. While the majority of police are good men and women who only want to serve and protect their communities, highly publicized incidents have shaken the public's faith. 

In Nanaimo, Canada, cops are looking to change that with “positive ticketing.” Since 2002, they have handed out over 6,000 tickets to youth, simply for being good citizens. Other police forces around the world have started similar programs, and to date, over a million positive tickets have been distributed in total.

Watch as these kids receive positive tickets from officers. It’s a small gesture, but the looks on their faces reveal just how much it means.

I hope more and more cops get on board with this awesome tradition. I wouldn’t mind being pulled over for a positive ticket!

She Had No Idea Why She Was Being Pulled Over, But Then The Cop Gave Her This

                          <div class="content">                    <h3>Nothing sends my anxiety skyrocketing quite like getting pulled over.</h3> You usually know why you're getting pulled over when it happens, but sometimes, you have no idea what's going on. Regardless of what you're pulled over for, you just never know whether you'll be greeted at your car door by a good cop or a bad cop. 

So you can imagine this woman’s level of stress when she was pulled over on a hot afternoon in Halifax, Virginia. It’s not every day that you get stopped for something called vehicle code 1739, but when you do, it might just make your afternoon a little cooler.

Watch as this unsuspecting woman discovers just what this violation actually means.

This sort of makes me want to break the law. Just saying.

This Pit Bull Was Thrown Out Because He Wasn’t Perfect, But A Hero Saved Him

Captain is a pit bull that was abandoned by his family because he wasn’t “perfect.”

He was born with a blind left eye and a deformed right ear, and for that reason, his owners abandoned him on the steps of a kill shelter in North Carolina. This typically would’ve been a death sentence for such an unusual-looking dog, but thankfully, these people were kind enough to save him.

North Carolina’s Cause for Paws swooped in and rescued him from the brink of death, and the kind cutie is beyond grateful.

Nicole Horabik is the woman who saved the puppy and placed him at the Cause for Paws facility.

Captain was only 8 weeks old when he was rescued from the kill shelter.

Horabik later wrote an emotional Facebook post about Captain’s unfortunate life story and included this photo.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56fdde038a98a”, auid: “537251602” });

Other than his aesthetic defects and his blind eye, Captain has a clean bill of health. There is no reason why he wouldn’t make a wonderful companion.

Rescuers believe that Captain’s next owners will be more loving toward the affable pup because he’s so gentle and friendly. Let’s hope that they’re right!
