    This story turned out nice, but it shows what assholes people can be. If kids get invited to a party, at least make some sort of an effort for your kids to attend. Even if the kid isn't popular or shy, why keep you kid home just to torture this lonely kid.


    I see this kid and he reminds me so much of my son, he's quiet and shy, but kids here still attend each others party's no mater what and all have a good time.


    Troopers surprise 10-year-old boy when nobody shows up to his birthday party

    A 10-year-old boy in Arkansas said his heart sank when his mom sent 21 classmates invitations to his birthday party earlier this month, but nobody showed up.

    Two days later, the doorbell rang. A group of state troopers stopped by, and they brought cake.

    "They had come to give me all that stuff and make up their own birthday party for me," Toxey Ahrabli told KTHV. "I cried a little bit because they did that for me."

    At first, a few parents said their children would attend, Toxey's mom told ABC News. "We thought there were at least five kids coming," Angela Andrews said. But she told the news station one child fell ill, and the others were no-shows.

    She wrote about her son's grief on Facebook. Some state troopers noticed, and agreed the boy deserved a surprise party at his home in Hot Springs Village.

    From our friend Angela Andrews: "I don't even know where to start because saying "thank you" just doesn't seem good...

    Toxey said he was "scared and at the same time trying to figure out why they were here." But along with the cookie cake, they had gifts ranging from video games to a razor scooter.

    "They showed me all the keys to do the sirens and the horn. I also got to see the cage with the dog in it," he told KTHV. They also played a round of basketball.

    "Cpl David Forthman, along with Troopers Terry Sawyer, Kyle Sheldon, Brandon Cook, and Tim Callison are the reason we become troopers. We all want to make a difference," state police posted on Facebook.

    Cops don't beat kids if they're white.

    Growing up? We know a couple and a couple of times in the past they asked us to do something with them. We said yes and set days and times. Come those days, they did not show up. We called and they were on their way some other place and we didn't get together with them. We did not do anything with them for over 3 years. We invited them over last Sunday to see a movie. They said yes and we told them when to come. No shows again. So they are on the shit list permanently.

    I have other stories, but let's just say that some people are real turds. I don't like to be 5 minutes late.

    That's nice, but white kids are not the problem. They should do this kind of community outreach with the blaeks.

    "Here kid, take this cake. We didn't have any friends in school, either. When you get older, you can get a badge and get even."
