Because this is who we are.

Via NY Post.

A police officer who pulled over a doctor for speeding let her go with a warning — and handed her five N95 masks instead of a ticket, she wrote in a Facebook post….

“He went back to his patrol car to look up my license, and when he returned, quite firmly told me it was very irresponsible of me to be speeding, especially since I would not only take up resources if I got into an accident, but would also not be in a position to help patients,” she wrote in the post.

But instead of a fine, the trooper let her off with a warning, she wrote.

“As I sputtered to apologize and say thank you, he reached in to hand me what I assumed was my license back….

“Five N95 masks, from the supply the state had given him for his protection,” she added….

“This complete stranger, who owed me nothing and is more on the front lines than I am, shared his precious masks with me, without my even asking,” she wrote. “We are going to be ok.”
