Zappos, a large online company, after settling in downtown Las Vegas, created the "Downtown Rangers." The Downtown Rangers are an unarmed group of hospitality rangers scouting the downtown area of Las Vegas. Unlike cops, or even security guards, they aren't out to get you, they are there to help you.

My mom asked me today, "have you noticed there's no more homeless people in downtown?" I said "cool, did the Rangers kick them all out?" She said "no, they gave them jackets, money, food, and assisted them into shelters and the help they need." My cold attitude was suddenly shocked and moved by the compassion that was just presented before me.

So big kudos to the Rangers!

Really cool.

A lot of narrow minded people need to see this. I'll definitely repost.

And to top it all off, the title of the lead Ranger is the "Ambassador of Good Chill."
