(Scroll down for video) A man who was outspoken against police, has changed his tune after an officer showed him compassion.

Mark Ross was devastated when he received a called from his family, informing him that his sister died in a car accident.

Ross, who was overwhelmed with grief and wanted to be at his mother’s side, was unable to drive due to his state of mind.

Instead, his friend agreed to drive him from Indiana to his mother’s home in Michigan, after learning that his 15-year-old sister Eliza Fletcher was killed in a car crash.

At 3:00 a.m., during their trip, the driver was pulled over for speeding in Ohio.

Ross said that he began crying as he believed he was going to be taken to jail on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. However, the compassionate officer decided to give him a pass.

The officer then discovered that his friend had been driving with a suspended license. The friend was taken into custody and his car was towed leaving Ross stranded.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. David Robison offered to drive Ross the 100 miles to his family in Detroit, and also prayed for Ross and his family.

Ross wrote about the ordeal on Facebook, and he added: “Everybody knows how much I dislike cops, but I am truly grateful for this guy. He gave me hope.”

Ross’ family, who was also extremely grateful to Robison for his kindness, invited the officer to the teen’s funeral.
