Massachusetts State Trooper Shares a Meal with Homeless Woman
When State Trooper Luke Bonin stopped to have lunch with Lynn Murphy, a homeless woman, he never expected a photo of the two to go viral.
Bonin had just left court when he saw Murphy on the side of the road in Fall River, Massachusetts. He proceeded to buy some food for them both to enjoy a meal.
Murphy told the local news that she feared that when Bonin stopped, she would be in some sort of trouble. She was relieved when he pulled out the meals. "I thought he was just going to hand me the meal but when he said, ‘Come around the back, it’s such a beautiful day, we’ll have a picnic,’ I thought that was, it touched my heart," Murphy said.
"He didn’t know me from Adam. I’m a homeless panhandler. And he took the time out of his day, went and bought us lunch, and had it with me."
