Andrella "Lashae" Jackson, a single mom of five, was pulled over by the Milwaukee Police earlier this month for having the wrong registration on her car. But when Officer Zimmerman approached the vehicle, he noticed two small kids in the backseat without car seats. Instead of giving her a ticket, he took it upon himself to help Jackson out during a difficult time.

"I see three kids in the backseat and two are very young. I didn't observe any child restraints or even seat belts and I asked why the kids aren't in car seats. She said she can't afford them at this time," Zimmerman told WTMJ-TV.



Jackson said with bills coming up and winter approaching, she would have to buy coats and boots for her children, so she didn't have the extra money to get new car seats.

"It was hard for me," Jackson told the news station.

If you’ve never fallen into a mental hole you couldn't climb out of, it’s hard to understand how depression can be so debilitating. And when you're peering down at a loved one at the bottom of that hole, it’s hard to know how to help them out.

You can try to coach them on how to climb, but you don't understand how slippery the walls are. You can try to offer them a rope, but you don't realize that their muscles are too spent to grab it and hold on.
