"no friends, No gifts and no cake. The birthday party ended in disaster for nine-year-old Thomas Daniel."
"But the disappointment was short-lived – thanks to the local cops."
"Late in February, the police came to Austin Lynema, 22, in contact with the nine-year-old Thomas Daniel. The boy had just missed the bus to school in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. But there was something else that weighed on him. It was his birthday, writes CNN."
"Thomas told me that he thought someone would show up at his birthday party, because he is being bullied in school," says Austin Lynema to the channel."
"The 22-year-old police then decided to visit the celebration together with his partner."
" I rang the doorbell and he came out and saw us. He jumped up and down and smiled and could not take in that we actually showed up, " says Austin Lynema."
"But the police and his partner were the only guests. No one from Thomas Daniels class was there."
"Austin Lynema and his colleagues refused to see a nine year old to be sad on his birthday. The next morning ruled they therefore set up a proper celebration. They offered custom-made donuts, and Thomas Daniel were both a cap and a bag with polisstationens logo."
"After polisernas surprise has nioåringen a new dream."
"– I very much want to be a cop, " he says."
