GOOD NEWS Policeman Moved by Little Girl's Gift 'to Keep Him Safe'
A little girl's unexpected gift nearly brought one Mississippi police officer to tears.
She walked up to to Officer Josh McConnell while he was on patrol and handed him the brown teddy bear, saying it was to keep him safe.
McConnell tried to give Officer Ted E. Bear back but the little girl refused.
He didn't catch her name so he took to Facebook to share the story and try to reconnect.
McConnell wrote that he could barely keep his voice from cracking after she handed him the bear.
Since then, McConnell has changed his profile picture to Ted E. Bear and been sharing more photos of his "new buddy."
