The police officer who plays with dolls


A police officer in South Hill, Virginia, became a local celebrity after a video of him playing with dolls on the sidewalk with a group of little girls went viral. The officer has now come to be known as a mentor to neighborhood kids, who think of him as a superhero. Cpl. C.B. Fleming, a 15-year veteran, became acquainted with the children when emergency crews responded to a gas leak at an apartment complex. Once the leak was declared not a threat, and Fleming realized everyone was safe, he started talking with the residents of the complex. When Fleming spotted the kids playing outside — and after getting their parents’ permission — he went over to them, got down on the ground and started playing too. First he joined a group of boys who were coloring, and then with the girls who were playing with dolls. Fleming is a dad of three girls who proudly shares that he’s gotten his toes painted, and danced in princess dresses with makeup. The little boys, he said, reminded him of his 4-year-old son, a SpongeBob SquarePants fan
