    maybe not the way you think

    Stranger Asks Texas Deputy If He Can Stand Behind Her While She Pumps Gas. Deputy Asks ‘Why?’ Here’s the Answer She Gets.

    Exactly the scenario her fellow officer Darren Goforth was in when he was shot to death late last month.

    Soon enough Kelley couldn’t help noticing that a teenager she didn’t know was standing right behind her. Then he asked a question.

    “Ma’am, do you mind if I stand here behind you while you get your gas?” Kelly recalled on her Facebook page.

    She wasn’t exactly sure why the young man wanted to do that, so she inquired further: “And why?”

    “To make sure you stay safe,” he replied.

    After Kelley finished pumping gas, she said the kid was “still standing there, in the rain.”

    Then he walked away and began to enter the passenger side of a car, and Kelley had to know.

    “I asked the driver if she was his mom, and indeed she was,” Kelley said. “I told her she has an amazing son, and she said he wanted to make sure no one hurt me.”

    he knew that when he did it; that's what makes his act so great.

    Kid had probably just gotten his first .45 and was hoping to get to use it. Kind of makes me sentimental. :tears2:
