In a post on his Facebook page, Police Officer JD Boyd from Raleigh North Carolina said it best – “”I was glad it ended well for us both that day.”

Officer JD Boyd explained;

Almost a year ago this man and I were involved in a major altercation where he tried to stab me in the head and I nearly shot him. Today we ran into each other again and I learned that after his time in prison and some help from probation he now has a full time job and has another son on the way that will be here in November. I was glad it ended well for us both that day and I am ecstatic now to learn that he has turned his life around and we can embrace as friends.

No one is ever lost forever and as long as you continue to work to be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday things will work out eventually.

With some police resorting to their gun to settle all disputes, it’s good to see a story where a police officer had every right to be afraid, but somehow found the courage and not take the coward’s way out by pulling the trigger.
