An 18-year-old guy in Toronto tried to shoplift clothes from Walmart on Sunday. We don't know his name, because he wasn't charged with anything. And that's only because the cop who showed up is a great human being. The officer's name is Niran Jeyanesan. When he got to Walmart, he found out the guy tried to steal a tie, dress shirt, and socks. So he asked why he needed them. It turned out he had a job interview, but didn't have any nice clothes, and didn't have money to buy them. That's why he tried to steal them.
“This young person has been facing his own difficulties in life and he was looking to straighten out all that by providing for his family and trying to get a job,” Jeyanesan said.
So Niran decided not to arrest him. And before he let him go, he used his own money and bought the clothes for him. He told a reporter he did it because the guy knew he made a mistake, and was just trying to provide for his family. So instead of making his life worse, he decided to do something that might make it better.
