Cop Jams with Teenagers in Compton, LA
When Deputy Miguel Garcia, Jr pulled up, the teenage members of the garage band "Misled Youth" were sure they were in trouble. They assumed there had been a noise complaint and would have to stop rehearsing.
So they couldn't believe it when Deputy Garcia told them he'd been playing guitar since he was 15. Naturally, they wanted to hear him play, and it ended with this jam!
Deputy Garcia said, "I didn't become a police officer to go out there and start arresting everyone. I became a police officer because I absolutely have an overwhelming love for people."
He also said it only made sense to encourage the teenagers. It's better that they were here than on the streets.
