A Jersey City, New Jersey, police officer got some unexpected attention as a photo of him helping a young black man tie a tie went viral days before his retirement (photo above).
The photo of Officer Charlie Casserly standing beside his patrol car and helping a local teen tie his tie was taken July 9 by Lashambi B. Moore, The Jersey Journal reported.
Moore posted the photo to her Facebook page Thursday as Casserly entered retirement.
In the photo, the young man, who hasn’t been identified, is seen wearing khaki slacks, a dress shirt and a sweater vest. The teen’s collar is flipped up and Casserly is adjusting the young man’s tie.
The teen reportedly flagged down Casserly and asked for help.
“Charlie pulled the patrol car over, got out and spent nearly a half an hour teaching the young man how to tie a tie,” Moore wrote in the accompanying Facebook post.
Moore told the The Journal in a later interview that she snapped the photo because it was a positive scene and she thought others should witness it.
“I only posted it to make others feel good because it made me feel good,” Moore said.
She said Casserly first took the tie and tied it on himself before giving it back to the teen so he could try it himself. Once the boy finished tying the tie, Casserly helped him adjust it, according to Moore.
Other Facebook users chimed in to praise Casserly’s actions.
