DOTHAN: On Monday I received a message asking me to post a article about a Dothan Police Officer.
A black male Dothan resident was backing out of his driveway when his vehicle stalled in the middle of the road, sideways, blocking the entire road.
Dothan Police Officer K. Runge responded.
The gentleman complimented this officer for their “courteous, kind, help” attitude to not only get the vehicle from the road but what can I do to help you get going again or someone here to help you.
The man did not tell me nor did I ask if Dothan Police Officer K. Runge was a male or female officer or white, black or Hispanic.
Because he identified himself I do know the caller was a black male. But he wanted the officer recognized because of the negative comments towards law enforcement. He wanted to stress the positive treatment that he, as a black man, received from a Dothan Police Officer.
There was some issue with the man’s fuel pump in pumping gas to make the vehicle run. In the end was a simple fix.
Thanks to the gentleman for bringing to my attention. Thanks to Dothan Police Officer K. Runge for your representation of the City of Dothan and Dothan Police Department.
