Officer Lets Woman Go After Traffic Stop, Then Receives Something Shocking In The Mail A Few Days Later

While it’s pretty hard to keep it in perspective when you see flashing lights in your rearview mirror, the reality is that members of law enforcement officers are real people underneath those uniforms. As KMOV reports, this woman from St. Clair County, Illinois is crystal clear on that fact after a run-in with sheriff's deputy Dan Hill.

Gina Headen was speeding when she was pulled over on the Metro East highway. She knew that she was guilty, but she couldn’t help being overcome with emotion. It wasn’t the ticket, but rather something quite personal that was gnawing at her. Hill picked up on that, and Headen shared what happened next.

“He walked away and I broke down and started crying. Thinking he was back in his car. He surprised me and tapped on my window asking if I was ok. I told him I was sad, I just lost my dad. He said take a minute and breath. He talked to me a minute then helped me back into traffic,” she wrote on Facebook.

Hill’s kindness didn’t end there either, as Headen would be absolutely stunned to receive a condolence card from the officer in the mail a short time later.

The very letter she received:
