(Newser) – Andrella Jackson's kids weren't in car seats, and when a police officer pulled her over earlier this month, "I just knew he was gonna be one of them police that was gonna be like, 'oh yeah she's getting a ticket,'" the Wisconsin mom of five tells ABC 7. That's not what happened. Instead, Milwaukee officer Kevin Zimmerman went to Walmart and bought two car seats, which he brought to Jackson's home. "Instead of the tickets or anything, I got car seats," she says. "I was surprised, like I had tears coming down." Zimmerman even installed them in her car, she said in a Facebook post that was reposted by the Milwaukee Police Department. "Thank you Officer Zimmerman for going the extra mile and going above and beyond your call of duty," says the MPD in its post. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
