Police Officer's Act of Kindness Goes Viral

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  a police officer goes above and beyond for a pair of young boys. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Officer Joseph Bolland from Virginia was on patrol in a neighborhood when he spotted a pair of kids who looked like they could use a buddy.

The boys were using a balled up sock to play catch.

Officer Bolland wasn't having it, so with his own money he bought them a proper ball, action figures, and even a costume police hat.

He said the kids' reaction means everything to him.

“Just to see their eyes light up was incredible. It was probably my greatest moment as a police officer.”
