KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A Florida police officer and a young protester united in a sweet embrace during a peaceful protest in downtown Kissimmee.
Typhanie Stewart posted photos, taken by photographer Clark Quackenbush, of her 3-year-old son Aden and Kissimmee Police Department Lieutenant Napier hanging out during the protest.
Little Aden was holding a sign that read, "When I grow up, I want to be alive." The officer and Aden shared a hug during the demonstration.
Chief O'Dell retweeted the photos and wrote: "The message is heartbreaking, but the solution begins in frame 2. Thank you Mom for initiating this interaction, and for trusting us to be a part of showing your young man we can create a wonderful future together!"
