A generous cop goes to the aid of a 92-year-old man who is kicked out of the bank because his ID was out of date
June 18, 2021
Our senior citizens are the custodians of the past and of the experience that has built the society we live in now and who have much to teach us about how to live our lives with righteousness, dignity and sound principles. Unfortunately, there are still many contexts today in which these elderly people are treated with little dignity by people, as if they were individuals who are no longer able to make their brains work as they once did, and this is not the case at all. Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, and our elders even more so.

What happened inside this American bank really moved everyone, even if it infuriated some others. A 92-year-old elderly gentleman named Jesus Rangel had gone to the financial institution that day to withdraw money from his account; it was a pity, however, that the man had an expired identity card and could not proceed with the withdrawal.
The elderly gentleman, surprised and at the same time embittered, began to complain to the staff who didn't want to access his account because of the expired document; the Bank was then forced to call the local police to escort the 92-year-old gentleman out of the building until he calmed down.
When the police arrived at the Bank, they saw how agitated and dismayed Jesus Rangel was, but instead of forcibly escorting him out of the bank, one of the officers politely accompanied him to the nearest municipal office to request a new valid identity document. The noble and kind gesture byagent Robert Jesset did not end there, however.
Once he was satisfied that Jesus had the new valid document in his hand, he took him back to the Bank of America to be able to withdraw the money that the 92-year-old client needed. Obviously, the tender and moving image of the agent escorting Jesus hand in hand back to the Bank moved the whole internet.

"That man is a saint!", Many users commented, while others said, "All the grandfather wanted was to maintain his economic independence. And the police officer helped him in a dignified way. Good work, officer!"
The gesture of generosity that police officer Robert Jesset made reminds us once again how important it is to reach out to those who need it most and are in great difficulty, especially if this person is elderly and still has so much to teach us.
Well done Robert!
