    Boooooo.

    Can't there be one nice positive and relatively bipartisan thread about a cop hugging a young black man rather than shooting him?

    That was just one of the things that I liked about the post.

    With all of the negativity that's going on right now anything positive about race relations really stands out.

    What struck me was the sensitivity of the 12 year old to be crying while offering free hugs. It's a humble attitude like that that could really make a difference. Corny as it is, the phrase "and a child shall lead" comes to mind.

    The kid's guts were more impressive, given the correct environment.

    Maybe not but this little newspaper report will probably just send him into a frenzy.

    The boy’s mother, Jennifer Hart, who is white, wrote on social media that her son had been struggling with issues of police brutality and racism.

    Devonte is one of six children adopted by Hart and her wife, Sarah Hart, of West Linn, a suburb of Portland.
