Texas Trooper Helps Sick Child


It seems like there is nothing but bad news reported these days about police officers, but the truth is some of the bravest and most kind people in Texas are members of law enforcement. On Wednesday night, Trooper Eugene Jones saw a driver speeding down Highway 347. When he pulled over the driver he learned the mom inside was trying to get her sick child to the hospital in Houston. Rather than ticketing the driver, Jones was able to get an ambulance for the child who suffers from a condition that affects the bladder and muscles. The child was treated for a few days at the hospital and was released on Saturday. Three cheers for hero trooper 'Eugene Jones'.
