A dream came true today for a little boy who always wanted to be a police officer.
The highlight of the day for 13-year-old Angelo Butler was when he attended roll call at the Jefferson Park police station and got his very own junior police star.
He suffers from cerebral palsy, but always knew he wanted to be one of Chicago’s finest.
Angelo’s grandmother Christina Butler says she thinks this was the happiest day of her grandson’s life.
“It’s just an opportunity to see that kids like Angelo have dreams and even if they’ll never achieve them, they’ve got a taste of what it would be like and he’s an officer for a day,” she said. “He’ll be officer Butler for the rest of his life. Can’t take that away from him.”
Grandma Butler and Alderman Nicholas Sposato of the 38th Ward, helped make Angelos’ dream come true.
