US Cop Called To Remove Homeless Man From Restaurant Takes A Different Direction Instead
There’s a classic as f**k Robert Burns poem called To A Mouse about a little mouse whose nest is destroyed by a plough. Although you could argue it has some really f**ken tenuous links to homelessness – if you streeeetch it a bit – we can definitely use it for our purposes here, because in some ways ofthinking, the cop in today’s vid, Officer Mullinax, he f**ken gets it, man.
What that poem’s really about is the conversation the farmer has with the mouse – shivering and cold in the bleak December winds – and the fact that as a human, although he sympathises, the mouse only has to worry about dangers in the here and now and the farmer is able to fret about the dangers yet to come. It’s like a blessing and a curse.
Well, when Mullinax was called to tell a homeless man to piss off and get the f**k out of a restaurant – even though staff had been feeding him and only one dipsh*t customer complained – he realised that the metaphorical plough could metaphorically f**k anyone in the metaphorical arse at any given time. He looked ahead and realised this homeless bloke was in the midst of his December winds and his hoarfrost cold and he had to worry about the present – while Mullinax himself could look ahead to the future. So he took care of the bloke’s next meal for him.
He thought to himself, I could move this poor f**k along, but what’s one ear of corn in a shock to me? I’ll not miss it and this bloke’s just trying to survive. Then, like the total bloody legend he is, that cop bought old mate a mad feed.
The counter-staff were touched by Mullinax’s generosity. Victoria Paige Summer, in particular, thought he Mullinax was such a bloody legend that she shot a video for prosperity, and to show the good work the brave men and women of police forces from across the world actually perform on a daily basis.
As an added touch, our fieldmouse, the homeless guy actually has a name. He’s a veteran named Donald who served in the army from 78 – 81.
Final thought: It’s really bloody easy to think of homelessness as someone else’s problem. But yeah-nah, no poor b*stard plans on it. Anyone can go through some sh*t, and if you’ve no support network, the reality is that homelessness is often a swift and brutal nadir. Think of your local homeless f**ks as people with names and pasts and, hopefully, futures. Pay it forward, do a good deed, donate to charity, and for f**k’s sake, pay attention in your English class.
