(KTVI) – With all the tension surrounding the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, police haven’t gotten the best publicity.
But Wednesday was one of the more calm days in Ferguson. That was the day two Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers went out of their way to help some kids in the community.
The troopers noticed a basketball goal without a net and no children around to play on it. So they went to Target and purchased a net and basketball with their own money.
Captain Ron Johnson said when the troopers came back and put the net up, children around the neighborhood came out, thanked them and started playing basketball. Johnson said the children were extremely grateful.
