HOUSTON, Texas – A special moment captured on camera during a protest between a young girl and police officer George Floyd has gone viral.
Simon Bert took part in a peaceful protest in Houston this week with his wife and daughter, 5-year-old Simon. During the protest, one of the police officers noticed little Simon crying.
“He asked her,‘ Are you shooting? ”- Bert wrote on Twitter.
He said at the moment, the officer fell on one knee and surrounded him.
“We are here to save you. We are not here to hurt you. “He told Simon. “You can protest. You can have a party. You can do whatever you want. Just don’t break anything. “
When Burt spoke at the meeting with KTR, he thanked the officer for his compassion and for making him laugh about what law enforcement agencies might look like.

“It simply came to our notice then. “I want to thank the officer for giving me a different perspective on what kind of, good cops are.”
Berthe further said that the officer told him that he was the father, he surprised Simon, who later reported the matter to his father.
“He looked at me and said, ‘I didn’t know the cops had kids,'” he added.
