A homeless, black teen who was living in a tent was approached by a couple of police officers in Barnesville, Georgia. If you only view life through the prism of current headlines, you know how this story goes. But it turns out that when the officers learned that Fred Barley had biked more than six hours to register for college courses, they handed him the money in their pockets and put him up in a motel. And shortly thereafter, the community helped raise more than $184,000 for his education. Not everything is as it memes.

+ “It was the first time since 1992 that Jarvis Scott, the black man, said he’d sat down with a police officer, and the other two said it was their first time ever sitting down with an officer.” That time the Wichita Police Dept held a cookout with the local Black Lives Matter group.
