Troopers fix hoop and bring hope to Ferguson


FERGUSON, Mo. – There has been so much negative news out of Ferguson, Missouri it’s no wonder a simple photo is getting so much attention.

KTVI-TV reports two Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers went out of their way to help some kids in the community have fun.

The troopers reportedly saw a basketball hoop without a net.

No net meant no kids around to play and take their minds off what’s been happening there.

The troopers went to a store and, using their own money, bought a net and ball.

As you can see from the photo, the fixed hoop brought the kids out, and the troopers even took them on for a few games.
