After Big Sean walked into a NYC Chipotle and treated everyone to free lunch, people around the globe have been proving that even the smallest act of burrito-fueled kindness can help make the world a better place.

One Chicago police officer decided to follow in the rapper’s footsteps and treat a homeless man to a burrito early last week.


While enjoying his midday meal, officer Sergeant B. Hagarty noticed a homeless man through the restaurant window who was searching through trash cans for food. Through the glass, Hagarty asked the man if he was hungry, and the man then nodded yes. The officer brought the homeless man inside, helped him build a burrito, and paid for his meal.

Witness Rachel Mitchell, who posted the story to her Facebook page, had this to say about the heartwarming incident:


“A simple hand shake was exchanged between them and they parted ways like it was no big deal. Touched my heart so much, with all the (crap) police are getting these days it reminds me there’s so much more good out there than anyone ever wants to give credit. If everyone did something simple like this every day the world would be a better place.”


The post had been shared close to 10,000 times at the time of this posting.

While good-hearted officers such as Hagarty may seem rare, earlier this summer, another officer helped a struggling father pay for baby food, proving there is more to a policeman than just his badge.
