Feel Good on the 50s Story: Cop Helps Homeless Man

By Helping him Shave for a Job

July 25, 2018

There's a video bouncing around Facebook of a cop in Tallahassee, Florida, helping a homeless guy shave. 

The cop's name is Tony Carlson and he saw the guy struggling to use an electric shaver outside a Circle K gas station.  We don't know the homeless guy's full name, but his first name is Phil and it turns out he was doing it for a job interview.

The manager of a McDonald's nearby told him that if he shaved and cleaned himself up, they'd give him a job but he was having trouble shaving, because he didn't have a mirror.  So Tony offered to help, and made sure it looked good.

Someone who saw it posted the video on Facebook.  Then Tony found out it went viral after his wife saw it and called him at work.

Of course, Tony is downplaying the whole thing saying it wasn't a big deal and that cops do stuff like this all the time.
