— An 8-year-old Raleigh boy got a thrill Friday when he was sworn in as the first honorary officer of the Raleigh Police Department.

Will Bunn got a full uniform and an authentic badge.

Bunn, who was diagnosed with cancer two years ago, said he's always wanted to "protect and serve" the community.

"I like all the handcuffs and how they go check out the jail and stuff," Bunn said of why he wants to be an officer. "I really like it how they do all that stuff."

    That's it for the article? And it was buried in noteworthy. Come on, show some class and give this young man the credit he deserves. I almost didn't even see this, good thing I knew to look for it.
