Mesquite Officer goes above and beyond to help mother of six-NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

A mother’s meeting with a Mesquite police officer changed her course and left a lasting impression on her family. The Nashua Top did not expect the meeting to end as it did.

“We were stranded on the side of the road for about 30 minutes,” Top said. “There was no air conditioning. Six small children. ”

Top said she did not know what to think when Officer Troy Burke walked up to the car where she was stuck in the Texas summer heat with her six young children. To her surprise, Officer Burke returned to the car with $ 100. Top, overwhelmed with gratitude, began filming.

Officer Burke said he was simply doing what he thought was right.

“I can not tell you what made me do what I did,” he said. “I never have money on me and something just told me, hey help those you know.”

He did not know at the time exactly how much this would mean for this family.

“He fed us that night,” Top said. “We were a starving family and he fed us.”

Burke, a father himself, said he believes this meeting should happen.

“Everything is supposed to happen for a reason and I think she was put there for a reason more to help me,” he said.

He had been at a crossroads and discussed whether he would continue his career in law enforcement.

“So I think she was there telling me there is still some work to be done,” Burke said. “I definitely got more out of it than she did. She was there when I needed her. ”

A mother’s meeting with a Mesquite police officer changed her course and left a lasting impression on her family. The Nashua Top did not expect the meeting to end as it did.

And to Officer Burke, Top had this message.

“You lead the way for what cops should be, even though we see the negative all the time,” she said. “You’re a good example of what the police should be.”
