LOUDON, TENN. - A few Florida police officers recently caught a lot of media attention after they responded in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, but, according to the comments, it was their good looks who launched them into social media virality.
One of the Gainesville officers in the original post, Michael Hamill, has recently come under scrutiny after Facebook posts appearing to show antisemitism have been unearthed.
It seems a trio of officers in Loudon, Tennessee, are trying to spread a different message: You don't have to be ridiculously good looking to do good work.
"We ain't pretty, but we get the job done," wrote Sgt. Scott Newman in a public Facebook post.
Sgt. Newman's post has been shared more than 18,470 times, received more than 4,800 comments and over 18,000 likes. You don't have to be "pretty" to spread the message of service.
