At a time when racial tensions have led to social unrest, gospel musician and executive Kirk Franklin is honoring a police officer who pulled him over.

Franklin has been vocal about the racism, classism and injustices taking place in the United States for some time, but it seems he wants to express a different narrative. The Grammy award-winning composer, producer and head of Fo Yo Soul Entertainment decided to highlight a positive encounter with a police officer.


“Didn’t realize I was speeding this morning till this officer pulled me over and politely asked me to slow down. Blew my mind how cool he was didn’t even know me till I asked for a picture,” Franklin wrote in an Instagram message last week. “Just wanna celebrate good hearted people in these difficult times. Good cops win!”
