A dash cam mounted to a cop car captured a truly heartwarming moment when Officer Ariel Soltura spotted a boy tossing a football by himself and stopped for a game of catch. Soltura told KTRK that he decided to play with 10-year-old Jermaine Ford because there were no other kids around.

When Cpl. Jeremy Walsh of Odessa, Texas, noticed that a local homeless man named A.J. was wearing boots with worn-out soles, he gave A.J. a spare pair from his home. The selfless act went viral when a local bystander snapped a photo and posted it to Facebook.

Why Volvo gave away the patent for their most important invention

Quote:
Nils Bohlin, an engineer at Volvo, invented the three-point seat belt in 1959. The 1950s were a time when pilots and racing drivers wore harnesses, but seatbelts – where they were fitted in cars – took the form of a rudimentary two-point waist restraint. In crashes, sometimes these did more harm than good.

The reason the three-point seatbelt is so widely adopted is actually because Volvo opened up the patent so that any car manufacturer could use it in their design. They decided that the invention was so significant, it had more value as a free life saving tool than something to profit from.

Volvo’s managing director Alan Dessell is quoted as saying: “The decision to release the three-point seat belt patent was visionary and in line with Volvo’s guiding principle of safety.”

Between all the crazy crash russian videos, someone gathered bunch of the good scenes.

Definitely a great video.

Good Samaritan Chased Down

Quote:
Last Thursday, a boy was punched and the iPad in his hands was stolen outside a Minneapolis restaurant.

Aaron Stillday, 32, was arrested and charged with first-degree aggravated robbery. Police caught him after a good Samaritan chased him down.

“Poor kid,” said Mohammad Armeli, the man who chased down the robber. “I can’t believe it, the blood was all over his face. Could have broken his nose.”

Surveillance video shows the 8-year-old following his aunt out of a day care building. What happened next left Armeli’s blood boiling.

“This is the scum of the earth,” he said. “You cannot hit a child like that. Don’t hit him for his iPad, or for anything.”

Armeli, who works at a Greek restaurant nearby, heard the commotion and went after the robber. While talking to 911 on his cell phone, he chased Stillday for more than a half-mile.

Also, in case you were wondering how well our justice system works:

Quote:
“As I was told, he’s been arrested 60 times,” Armeli said. “I can’t believe they let him out.”
