Cop Stops Man That Looks Like His Son, Then Sees Flag On Dashboard


Blue And Red

William Jazwinski was driving down the road one day when he saw a flash of blue coming from behind. He was surprised when the policeman indicated for him to pull over as he had done nothing wrong. Perhaps a taillight was out, he thought, rolling down his window to greet the officer.

But instead of the usual questions, the officer informed him that he’d flagged him down for a rather unusual reason. William’s exchange with the officer was about to become more personal than he’d expected.

A Coincidence

The exchange that quickly went viral on Facebook began when the officer noticed the folded American flag on William’s dashboard.

“I see you have a flag in the truck. The one we got for him! It’s at the house… Do you mind stepping out and receiving a hug?” the cop asked. “You remind me of my son. I pulled you over. I thought you were him.” It was an amazing coincidence, and of course, William obliged! After a heartfelt moment with the officer, he posted the entire exchange on Facebook.

He ended his post with: “To all of the family and friends of soldiers, fighting or done fighting, God bless you.”
