Cops save family from freezing to death after Salvation Army denies them access to homeless shelter

Оценок: 435 | Просмотров: 17623
One Tennessee family is extra thankful this year for the generosity they received from the Johnson City police officers who made it their mission to find the family shelter on one of the coldest nights of the year. Tim Lejeune, along with his wife and three kids, had been living out of their car. On a night where temperatures dipped to 18 degrees, Lejeune turned to the Salvation Army for safe shelter for his family. He noticed they were flying a white flag which signals that the weather is so cold that all are welcome to stay. … Well, almost all. Lejeune’s 15-year-old son was told he wouldn’t be allowed to sleep in the building. The Salvation Army has a policy that boys between the ages of 12 and 16 are not allowed to stay—they’re too old to sleep in the women’s shelter and too vulnerable to sleep in the men’s shelter with potential sex offenders. Police officers’ then became involved in the family’s cause but their efforts to convince the Salvation Army to bend their rules were unsuccessful. Officers AD McElroy, Justin Jenkins, Toma Sparks, Robert McCurry and Washington County-Johnson City 911 dispatchers then pooled together money from their own pockets to pay for a hotel for the the family. When the receptionist at the Johnson Inn realized what the officers were doing, they too joined in the giving spirit. The receptionist comped the room for the family which allowed the officers to spend the money on groceries for the family. The Salvation Army says they are now considering a revision to their age restrictions. Several days after this incident, the Salvation Army filled up the Lejeune’s car with gas. Meanwhile, the Good Samaritan Ministries helped to secure a permanent place for the family to live. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Shame there's not more police officers like in this clip. usually it's the bad police officers outweigh the good ones, as in police brutality, etc.

I was crying a little and what the heck is wrong with the salvation they won't let kids in what the only 16 year olds are allowed the salvation army sucks let's not donate money to them I'm glad they have a great place to stay

That is truly heart warming

Oh guess what they said they were protecting the children with that age limit. Yeah because making boys 12 to 16 years old stay outside when its freezing is protecting them. Oh and also there can be women perverts too. Not as much but there still is. (by the way if you have no idea what I mean in the interview with that family apparently the SA said that perverts might get the boy because he's too young for the boys side but too old for the girls side because the girls in pajamas)

You can google this event and find out the situation. This portrayal is accurate but doesn't include all the details. As Paul Harvey said "and now for the rest of the story."

Voan Siam (4 года назад)
I will never trust corporations or charities, they say they will give and service but they also lack the heart. It's only the money they want, I had met five families the past ten years who had been to homeless shelters only to get rejected, the Salvation Army being one of them.

Funny how the mainstream media never shows what the good cops do. BTW whats up with the discrimination against boys? If that sign banned girls, there would be riots in the streets.

Bravo to the Johnson City Police, you guys made my day :)
Danny The Elite (4 года назад)
That's so stupid can't they just build a separate section for guys aged 12-16 then? Even if it is just putting a mattress into a closet or something it's better than not letting in anyone of that age.
Lord Azoun (4 года назад)
Thats not to far from where i come from. The cops here in east tennessee are pretty straight you don't hear about any cop shooting unless you travel to Knoxville then you hear about once every couple of months it seems.

Quiet a few homeless charities are not what they proclaim to be they treat people like trash and will threaten to kick you out in the cold for the most insignificant things. Unfortunately in today's world if you are humble and treat others with respect that is perceived as weakness, everyone has to be a hard ass and has to have a commanding attitude when dealing with other people.

homeless family. good god why would you raise a family if your homeless
Voan Siam (4 года назад)
Even people who earns a salary every year could someday become homeless too you know. This applies to every family, not just the ones here. When you see a homeless person, take a second in his shoes will you be able to survive if you are homeless? Don't say you won't ever be homeless cause you'll never know, it may not be today, nor tomorrow but someday.

Most people are living from paycheck to paycheck and are only a few missed checks away from being homeless.
Danny The Elite (4 года назад)
You're an idiot so what if they became homeless after they had kids, like way after? It was like this for my family, when i was 11 my dad lost his job and we drifted into poverty and we had to stay at the homeless shelter in my town for a few weeks, later we kinda went in and out for a few years. It's not like everyone who is homeless was raised like that.
Jonezx2020 (4 года назад)
k...all im saying is that if your not financially stable, it's probably a bad idea to raise a family. 
Lone Wolf (4 года назад)
If they were homeless all along they wouldn't of had a car you idiot don't you think that they probably couldn't pay for their home and the bank took it and THEN became homeless You make me sick you son of a bitch
