“Without a Word Being Spoken, Jeremy [Henwood] Bought the Food and Handed It to Him”

One of San Diego, California, Police Officer Jeremy Henwood’s final acts was buying a meal at McDonald’s for a 10-year-old African-American boy who had some coins, but not enough for the meal he wanted. The security video came to light after Mr. Henwood was murdered on 6 August 2011 by a man in a black Audi who flashed his lights at Mr. Henwood, who pulled over. The man in the Audi pulled alongside the patrol car and shot Mr. Henwood, who died the next day. San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne said about Mr. Henwood’s final good deed, “The boy had some coins in his hand. Jeremy couldn’t make out how much, but it was clear that he didn’t have enough for the food that he wanted. Without a word being spoken, Jeremy bought the food and handed it to him.”
