Florida Jewish Community Sends Food To Police Precinct Whose Cop Was Killed In A Robbery

A South Florida Jewish community has started sending food to the Hollywood Police Department after one of its police officers was killed during an armed robbery Sunday.

The Jewish community started the great gesture as a form of sympathy and gratitude for the heroism of Yandy Chirino, the 28-year-old officer who was shot while attempting to stop the robbery in Emerald Hills, the neighborhood that forms the heart of the local Orthodox Jewish community.

Adina Ciment, a Hollywood resident who is part of many individuals who dropped food to the police officers said the tragedy opened their eyes to the heroism of police officers in their neighborhood especially that the shooting happened just minutes away from a local synagogue.

“It’s unfortunate that it took a tragedy in our backyard to remind us how much the police force does for us each day and how much we take it for granted,” Ciment said.
