freaked out daughter

A Texas police officer had a young black girl calm down after her father was pulled over for a routine traffic stop.

According to ABC news, Michael Harris was stopped by Officer Mike Collins from the Frisco Police Department with his 7-year-old daughter Mikylie in the car.

“Once the officer got to my door he asked me for my license and registration and I told him that I had a conceal carry license and that I had a pistol on my right hip,” Harris told ABC News today.

“After I told him that, my daughter came out of the back crying and freaking out.

“The police officer gave her a little sticker, a little badge sticker,” Harris continued, which he said helped calm her down.

Collins let Mikylie play in the police car and turn on the lights and sirens, according to Harris.

“That made her feel a lot more comfortable with police officers,” he noted.

Harris said Mikylie had become wary of cops after the recent shootings in the country.

“Right after the Dallas shootings happened, she asked me, ‘Daddy why are the white people and black people killing each other?’ I didn’t know what to say,” Harris said.

But Collins set a good example for Mikylie.

“It was a great experience” for her, Harris said.

A spokesperson for the Frisco Police Department told ABC News that Harris was pulled over for a routine stop and was issued a ticket.

“The driver was very cordial and very respectful. He handed his concealed carry license and let the Officer know that he did have weapon,” officer Benito Valdez said.
