Scales didn’t know the officer’s name, but she would always wave at him through her window as he drove past her house, and he would wave right back at her too.

Her mom was never around, so Scales had only one person she could count on. It was the officer who drove by her house every morning. “He was the one person that I trusted in my life as a kid,” said Scales. But one day, the officer drove by, and she didn’t wave at him. So, he got worried.

The officer was concerned, so he decided to walk up to her door and check on her. It’s a good thing he did too. When he opened the door, he found her on the ground, and she appeared to be having a tough time breathing. He rushed her to the hospital, but worried she might not make it.

The little girl suffered from severe malnutrition. Immediately after being discharged from the hospital, her family moved her away to Texas. The little girl never got the officer’s name, and he never got hers. Years later, Scales grew up and had kids. But she never stopped thinking about the cop.
