On March 1st 2016, Officer Eric Gaines, was patrolling the streets of Baltimore, Maryland. As he turned the corner, he noticed something terrible unfolding. A homeless man was sleeping on the ground while a teenager knelt down next to him.
Judging by the teenager’s body language, Officer Gaines thought the homeless man was quietly being robbed. However, as he prepared to confront the teenager, Officer Gaines realized his assessment was completely wrong.
