On January 15th Gainesville Police Officer Bobby White was dispatched to look into a complaint about kids playing basketball loudly in the street. When he showed up, he quickly realized that there was no wrongdoing going on and decided the best thing to do was join the game.
The GPD uploaded the video to Facebook where it quickly went viral and spawned the hashtag #HoopsNotCrime on Twitter.
As I write this on Friday afternoon the video has 7.3 million views. You can watch it on Facebook right HERE. Its great to see the police getting some positive attention. They do so many wonderful things and are greatly under-appreciated.
