RETIRED ASST. CHIEF JAY PROPST



Badge 1015
Born July 31, 1934
Appointed April 26, 1957
Retired July 31, 1989 (vested)
Died Dec. 5, 2014

Upon hearing on Tuesday of this week that Jay Propst had passed away, we made contact with his daughter Sharon Tengberg, who told us that her father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer toward the end of Nov. and that he succumbed to the disease two weeks later. She also provided us with the following obituary.

Jay Howard Propst was born in San Jose, CA on July 31, 1934 to Clyde and Monte Propst. He was the younger brother of Virginia, and together the family resided in Los Altos, CA.  

Following his graduation from Campbell High School, Jay worked part-time as an ambulance driver while attending San Jose State University. During a stop one day at O’Connor Hospital a student nurse caught his eye. He had arranged to meet her on a blind date, but was surprised when an even cuter student nurse showed up. Although it may have been the “wrong” girl, she was the right one for Jay. He and Anamarie Krieg married on Oct 9, 1955, and together they enjoyed 59 years of marriage. Their children arrived first with Sharon in 1957, and two years later with Steve in 1959.  

Jay followed the career path of a police officer. He started as a motorcycle cop at the San Jose Police Department in 1957 and left 22 years later as the assistant chief of police of the 1,100 member force. His titles over the years included patrol officer, detective of homicide and robbery; field detective; commander of internal affairs; and operations commander. In 1979, Jay left his position as the Assistant Chief of Police of the SJPD to become the Chief of Police in Boulder, CO, where he served until his retirement in 1992. His character and integrity earned him the respect of his fellow police officers as well as the community. The Boulder newspaper wrote that Chief Propst was “A Cop with clout. A cop’s cop. A man’s man.”  

Jay enjoyed outdoor activities such as deep sea fishing, golfing, spending weekends on his boat “Gotcha” on the Sacramento Delta and SF Bay, watching the Giants play baseball, attending car shows, traveling with his wife, and spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was a soft spoken, tender and beloved man with a quick wit and dry sense of humor. He will be sorely missed.

Jay is survived by his loving wife Anamarie; his sister Virginia Propst; his daughter Sharon Propst Tengberg (Van); his son Stephen Howard Propst; his seven grandchildren Jennae Tengberg Porter, Blake Tengberg, Brett Tengberg, Shardae Tengberg, Brady Tengberg, Morgan Propst, Nathan Propst; and six great grandchildren with one on the way.

He passed away peacefully with his family by his side due to Pancreatic Cancer. A private, family service will be held on Dec 13th in Murrieta.

The family has suggested that the best way to honor Jay would be for you to do something nice for a police officer in your local neighborhood.

The Facts About POA's Position On Body Worn Cameras

Police departments throughout the nation are in various stages of deploying Body Worn Cameras ("BWC") and our Department is no exception. The POA recognizes that BWC will be implemented but prior to that implementation the POA is meeting and conferring with the department on policies, procedures and protocols to ensure BWC are implemented in a thoughtful manner.

Prior to implementation, San Jose must have in place written policies that address issues surrounding privacy, video storage, access to stored video, public record act requests and a myriad of other important issues identified in our discussions with the Department. Jurisdictions that have moved too quickly to implement BWC without thoughtful policies, procedures and protocols in place are encountering difficulties implementing BWC.

Our goal is to make sure that we have appropriate policies, procedures and protocols in place to ensure that this important technology is implemented correctly.  Some police departments have rushed to issue cameras without sufficient forethought and have suffered serious setbacks. The City of Seattle, for example, is considering scrapping its program, only a few months after it started because it did not sufficiently anticipate the effect of cumbersome public records requests.

Click HERE to read about the Seattle PD’s BWC issues from the Seattle Times.

Click HERE to read the Mercury News article about body worn cameras.

By way of background, the Department has been investigating cameras for more than a year. In March, the POA sent the following letter because we were concerned that the Department was not allowing sufficient time for the important and mandatory meet and confer process in its roll-out plan.

Click HERE to read the March 27, 2014 letter.

As it was, we received a copy of the Department's Draft Policy in mid-September.

We met with the department on October 6, November 12 and December 2 to discuss the Draft Policy.  On December 2, we presented 13 proposals on issues ranging from officers' rights to review recordings, use in secondary employment, admonishments regarding the accuracy of the cameras, to adequate training.  The meetings have been constructive, although we have not yet received responses from the Department to our proposals. We assume we will receive those at our next meet and confer session, presently scheduled for Monday, January 5, 2015.

Unfortunately, our thoughtful approach to the implementation of BWC has come under attack by the politically appointed Independent Police Auditor, LaDoris Cordell.  Ms. Cordell's recent comments to a local blog (click HERE) were shameful, untrue, and actually quite pathetic. Had she the common sense to fact check her inaccurate comments she may have thought better than to perpetuate lies.  I say may have, because I am unsure what the IPA's true motivation actually is with regard to BWC.  Is it to see in print her remarks denigrating the POA for doing our job, or is it to fan the flames created in her own mind of some vast POA conspiracy to scuttle BWC?

The Independent Police Auditor allegations that the POA is delaying implementation are untrue:

San Jose's independent police auditor, LaDoris Cordell,
applauded the department and Police Chief Larry Esquivel
for moving forward on acquiring body-worn cameras,noting
that they can help protect citizens from potential abuse as well
as officers and the city from false claims and lawsuits But she
called the POA's attempts to delay implementation "shameful."

"This is all political," Cordell said. "It has nothing to do with the efficacy of cameras. It's shameful.

There is no excuse for the IPA making baseless accusations toward the POA and she ought to be ashamed of herself. We certainly hope the IPA does a better job of gathering facts with regard to her actual job because she failed to gather any facts prior to recklessly attacking the POA for thoughtfully working with the Department on this new technology.

The letter below was sent to the IPA today from incoming POA President Paul Kelly.

The fact that the department has only recently created a Draft BWC Policy is not a reason to shortcut the important meet-and-confer process that is critical to protecting our members' rights.  When all is said and done, it will be our members who have to wear the cameras.  Accordingly, the POA will not be pressured by a political opportunist pushing for a politically expedient implementation until all potential issues have been addressed.

As we continue to discuss the complex issue of BWC's with the Department, we welcome and encourage any member with concerns or comments to call one of us so that we are able to address them on the front end.

Today, Councilmember Liccardo issued a memo that will be considered in January of 2015. The memo seeks to open negotiations on pension cost savings and other items and further delay key components of Measure B.

The Mercury News sought comment from us and Fire Local 230. Below is our entire statement sent to the reporter:

"It is refreshing to see that Mayor-elect Liccardo recognizes that the roll of the dice that Measure B was has come up snake-eyes and that it is well past time to come to the table and negotiate a global settlement of all outstanding issues to create legal pension cost savings."

Liccardo Tries to Solve Police Feud

—Retirement cuts helped drive hundreds of cops to other cities—

By Mike Rosenberg <mrosenberg@mercurynews.com>
Mercury News — Dec. 11, 2014

SAN JOSE — As promised, incoming Mayor Sam Liccardo has made his first order of business to try to solve what continues to be the biggest issue at City Hall: the feud with rank-and-file cops.

Liccardo on Wednesday said the city will seek to return to the negotiating table with its police union with renewed hopes of ending a legal battle over pension reforms voters approved in 2012.

The retirement cuts, which have helped drive hundreds of cops to other better-paying cities, were the main point of division in this year’s mayor’s race as both candidates fought over how best to restore the short-staffed police department.

But Liccardo, in his latest proposal, did not offer any meaningful new concessions and it’s unclear whether the latest effort will generate any results after years of agonizingly slow progress between both sides.

Public safety unions, though, signaled they were also willing to try and resolve the dispute over the pension reforms and called Liccardo’s announcement “refreshing.” The unions said it’s clear the mayor-elect recognizes “that it is well past time to come to the table and negotiate a global settlement,” according to a joint statement from incoming police union President Paul Kelly and firefighters union President Joel Phelan.

Liccardo already has met with union leaders since his narrow win in November over his labor-backed opponent, county supervisor Dave Cortese. Liccardo thinks he has a window for negotiations during the post-election calm after a heated campaign. He also wants to send a message of encouragement to cops who are thinking about leaving. “As police officers are mulling their options, we certainly want to ensure that our workforce is aware that the city leadership is focused on finding a resolution,” Liccardo said. “We need to negotiate as long as it takes to get to a resolution.”

The downtown councilman’s proposal will be the first new item of business taken up by the new City Council when it is seated in the new year, starting with a committee meeting Jan. 7. It calls for laying out a process to bring both sides back to the bargaining table for the first time since last spring in hopes of settling the lawsuit unions filed to block the pension reforms.

The proposal also concedes that two key aspects of the reforms — requiring existing employees to pay more toward their pensions and making it harder for injured cops to receive a disability retirement — would be delayed another year, until July 2016. But those provisions already had been tied up in a lengthy ongoing court process and it is unclear if they would be legally settled before 2016.

Liccardo is also continuing to offer smaller giveaways from earlier this year to help ease the tensions between cops and City Hall. Those include bumping up bilingual pay for officers and allowing retirement-age cops to work part-time while collecting a piece of their pensions, but the union had brushed aside those plans before the election, saying they did not solve their underlying concerns over Measure B.

Feel free to use this rant in the Farsider if you wish. Venting has relieved my blood pressure a little.

I have been spending way too much time watching the news. Much to my surprise, I have been informed by all the major news channels and the usual conflict-oriented talking heads that police officers go out to shoot down people of color with or without provocation.
 
Yes, I have heard several more intelligent people suggest that if people would just respond to a police officer's command and argue about it later less people might be hurt. I know there are racist police officer, lawyers, judges, paramedics, landlord, firefighters, priests, school teachers, truck drivers, moonshiners, race car drivers, surfers, cooks and hookers. Yes, I am tired of the overblown hyperbole about racist cops shooting to kill.

As a former police arrest-control tactics and baton instructor I have a new approach I suggest should be taught to officers. If the person you are contacting refuses to peaceably be arrested or tries to attack you, get in your patrol car, leave the area and ask dispatch to call one of the news services' talking heads to respond. They are, after all, experts on police tactics. If you doubt that, just ask them.  

If none are available, perhaps Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson or Eric Holder could be contacted to ensure there is a sensitive and diversity based response to the potential conflict.

Meanwhile, do not wait in the area. Go get a cup of coffee.

IS DARREN WILSON’S FINANCIAL FUTURE SECURE FOR THE MOMENT?


Doesn’t seem that the mainstream media wants to acknowledge anything in the way of public support for former Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson, which could explain why it took us a little time to dig this story out of cyberspace…

People are Supporting Darren Wilson in an Incredible Way that will Drive the Race Baiters Crazy

—After resigning from the Ferguson, Missouri, police force without severance pay—

By Norvell Ros — December 2, 2014
WJ Western Journalism website

Online crowd-funding is proving to be both a comfort and a source of substantial funds for Darren Wilson.

After resigning from the Ferguson, Missouri, police force without severance pay, Wilson apparently has no job prospects; and he still faces all sorts of daunting challenges — both legal and safety-related — despite not being indicted by the grand jury in the August death of Michael Brown.

But Darren Wilson and his new wife will reportedly be receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from online donation efforts organized by an anonymous supporter. In fact, according to a post on dailymail.co.uk, the amount of money pouring in from crowd-funding could soon exceed $1 million.

The woman who founded the movement to support Darren Wilson has spoken out and revealed that the Ferguson police officer could have a $1 million war chest.

The supporter said that she knew of at least $500,000 from two donation funds set up in his name but that was a ‘conservative estimate’ – and the total could be seven figures.

Shortly after then-officer Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown in a confrontation on a residential Ferguson street, other crowd-funding sites were launched that reportedly raised a good deal of money for Wilson before the sites were shut down as violent protests over the killing intensified.

It’s likely that Darren Wilson will need whatever money can be raised on his behalf for more than everyday living expenses. Not only is Eric Holder’s Justice Department continuing its investigation into whether civil rights charges will be filed against the former Ferguson cop, but the parents of Michael Brown have indicated they may sue Wilson in civil court.

The effort to secure online donations for Darren Wilson is not the only crowd-fundingcrowdfunding initiative related to the Ferguson shooting and the resulting unrest, wh well documented vandalism, looting, and arson.

A downtown Ferguson bakery, Natalie’s Cakes and More, which was badly damaged during the rioting, has reportedly received over a quarter-of-a-million dollars in donations from hundreds of supporters.

Plus, there’s an online effort to raise money for an independent film about Ferguson and race relations in America. With a crowd-fundingcrowdfunding site set up at indiegogo.com, the project is billed as a “response to the growing problem of racial disparity due to the onnization of black men.”

Currently, the effort to crowd-fund “American Race” has not been nearly as successful as either the Darren Wilson donation initiative or the bakery project. Supporters wanting to see the film made have pledged only about $6500 — a quarter of its $25,000 goal.

THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES
     
Dec. 4 thru Dec. 9

President Obama went to the hospital because of a sore throat, but it turned out to be acid reflux. Some say it was an overreaction, but then Obama said, "Uh, did YOU have to spend the last few months hugging Ebola people? Call me when that happens and we’ll see if I over-reacted."

Obama went to the hospital this weekend because of a sore throat. Everything is fine, but it was a little awkward when they asked what insurance he uses, and he said, “Blue Cross. No, I mean Obamacare.”

Last week my wife and I welcomed our second child, Frances Cole Fallon. Now I live with three females. Or as Obama put it, "Who's laughing now, funny man?"

There are reports that North Korea has banned all newborn babies from being named Kim Jong Un. Which is why my wife and I played it safe and went with “Frances Cole.”

Umpire Dale Scott recently became the first major league umpire to come out as gay. Well, he says he's out, but another ump said he was safe, so now we have to wait to see what the replay says.

Umpire Dale Scott came out during an interview with Referee magazine. It's a huge shock — you know, that there's something called Referee magazine.

Starbucks is offering a limited number of sterling silver gift cards that cost $200. They say it's a very classy way of saying, "I know nothing about you.”

New research has found that 84 percent of vegetarians and vegans ultimately return to eating meat. It turns out the way animals are treated is nothing compared to how people treat vegetarians.

This is official today. China has surpassed the U.S. and now has the No. 1 economy in the world. After hearing this, China's children asked, "So now can we take a lunch break?"

North Korea ordered people with the same name as Kim Jong Un to change their names. If you have his name, you have to change your name. And to avoid even more confusion, they're deporting all chubby lesbians with bad haircuts.

Today two men dressed as Batman and Captain America tried to rob someone at a gas station. They're being charged with attempted robbery and mixing Marvel with DC.

This morning President Obama met with Britain's Prince William in the Oval Office. It was a meeting between a symbolic ruler with no real power and the future king of England.

Facebook revamped its search feature. Now you can search for any post that has ever appeared on your page. It's helpful if you want to waste time this year remembering exactly how you wasted time last year.

McDonald's has released a video showing how its Chicken McNuggets are made. Apparently the McNuggets die naturally after being fed the McRib.

A village in Alaska has been without mail for days because its only postal worker quit. So if you want to reach anyone in that village, you will have no choice but to email, call, text, Facebook, tweet, Skype, or Instagram.

Some people are mad over the Discovery Channel's "Eaten Alive" special about a man getting eaten by an anaconda because the snake didn't completely swallow him. This proves there are two things America will not stand for: false advertising and portion control.

Scientists say they're getting closer to developing a pill to replace exercising. Americans heard this and said that it better come in cool ranch flavor.

This week Apple stores are holding free computer programming classes for children. Or as that's called in China, a job fair.

McDonald's released a new video showing how it makes their Chicken McNuggets. Apparently it turns out that McNuggets aren't made out of chicken. They're made out of people who ask too many questions.

It turns out that President Obama has acid reflux. He had a sore throat, went to the hospital, and they diagnosed it as acid reflux. Talk about irony — it's not covered by Obamacare.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are in New York City. We have got to do something about immigration.

People say we need royalty. We have royalty in the United States — the Kardashians.

On CBS tonight we are following the great holiday special, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Good news: Rudolph is out of rehab and his nose is no longer red.

Princess Kate and Prince William are in New York City. Last night they went to a basketball game in Brooklyn and saw the Cavs play the Nets. They sat at courtside. Where do they get that kind of money?

After the game in a gesture of friendship, LeBron James put his arm around Princess Kate. You're not supposed to do that. You can't touch royalty, as I continually remind my staff.

While the prince and princess are in New York City they will be visiting people who are less fortunate — you know, like the Jets.

 

There was a press conference in England announcing the new James Bond movie. It's going to be called "Spectre." they unveiled Bond's new car. It's not even out yet. They have not even made it and Jay Leno has two!

The Bond girl this time is Monica Bellucci. She is very beautiful. She's the oldest Bond girl ever. She's 50. You know they are going to make a big deal out of that and give her a name like Ivanna Playbingo. Or Miss Menopausy. Anita Supplement. Havna Hotflash. Eileen Onawalker.

It was a great week for Jimmy Fallon. He welcomed a baby girl. Congratulations, Fallons! In this modern society, your little girl can grow up to be anything she wants. Except of course a late-night talk-show host.

A marine biologist in California discovered a very rare 12-pound lobster. He said he planned to return the lobster to the ocean. But today he was seen buying 12 pounds of butter.

According to a survey, the most popular Christmas song of all time is "Silent Night." The least popular? "Joy Behar to the World." Or "We Three Kardashians." What about "I Saw Mommy Kissing Bill Cosby."

The British royals are here. Prince William plans to stay out of the spotlight. To avoid the crowds he is going to a Jets game.

Today Prince William went to Washington, D.C., and he met with President Obama. He said, "It feels weird being in the White House because I'm not an American." And then Prince William said, "Yeah, me too."

The meeting with Prince William took place at the White House because Prince William wanted to see where the president spent his days, but the golf course was covered in snow.

A man in Dublin punched a hole in a $10 million painting by Claude Monet. And today he was sentenced to five years in prison. For punching a painting? There are going to be more fists going where they shouldn't.

Why would an Irish dude walk into a museum and punch a Monet? If he punched a Rothko, I'd understand. Am I right, art majors?

I don't care for Mark Rothko or Jackson Pollock. That impressionist stuff started with Marcel Duchamp. I'm getting more cerebral, but I'm out of here in nine days so if I want to talk about Marcel Duchamp, I'll do it. And I won't do any more jokes about Taylor Swift breaking up with all those dudes.

I want to check my Twitter feed now to see if anyone's angry at me for that Rothko comment.

Ryan Seacrest is here with us tonight. You may know Ryan from the majority of things on television.

I like Ryan Seacrest a lot. But do you really need to promote New Year's Eve? I feel like the calendar does a pretty good job of that on its own.

The birthrate in the United States is at an all-time low. Whereas our death rate is still holding strong at 100 percent.

The trailer for the new "Terminator" movie came out today. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as you may know, is back. Said he'd be back, and he is. A man of his word. In this one he goes back in time to stop Phil Collins from launching a solo career.

President Obama was diagnosed with acid reflux. His approval rating is so low that he's starting to get pushback from his esophagus.

Apparently the president had a sore throat. His doctor said he needs Zantac. Sadly, that's actually the best news President Obama's gotten in a very long time.

So now, Joe Biden is just a heartburn away from the Oval Office.

A nor'easter is hitting the East Coast right now. Why do we say "nor'easter" instead of "northeaster"? The only people who should be allowed to say "nor'easter" are people who make a living catching and/or processing cod.

The Weather Channel is calling the winter storm "Damon," after Matt Damon. So if anything bad happens, it's on him.

At the White House yesterday, they kicked off Computer Science Education Week. Students gave tutorials on computer code and President Obama sat down and wrote one. All his program does is draw a box, which he's hoping he can crawl into and hide in for the rest of his term.

Every year Americans spend millions of dollars on Christmas gifts for their pets, which makes no sense to me. Your pet doesn't know it's Christmas. In fact, your pet doesn't even know it's a pet, so giving your cat a sweater is about as useful as giving your microwave a hat.

Justin Bieber has reportedly dyed his hair platinum blond. Apparently he wanted to go platinum one last time.

There is a new student loan calculator app that can determine how long students will be in debt based on their major. For example, if you’re a creative arts major, you can’t afford the app.

This weekend a silver plate crafted by Pablo Picasso was stolen from a Miami art fair. Police are describing the suspect as a man with one big eye, one tiny eye, a giant sideways mouth, and two noses.

A flight headed from San Francisco to Phoenix had to make an emergency landing in L.A. today after a passenger gave birth midflight. The parents called the birth a miracle while the airline called it a second carry-on.

The woman gave birth in the middle of a flight. I'm happy to report that the mother and child are doing fine, while the guy who was sitting next to her is not.

A church in Alabama will start hosting their Sunday services at Buffalo Wild Wings so they can reach a wider audience. And no audience is wider than the people who eat at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Steve Postier and Bert Kelsey both felt the following was worthy of inclusion in this week's Farsider...

A few years after I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around from then on.
 
As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche. My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey. But the stranger...he was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies.
 
If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict the future! He took my family to the first major league ball game. He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.
 
Sometimes, Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace and quiet. (I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)
 
Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions, but the stranger never felt obligated to honor them. Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home — not from us, our friends or any visitors. Our long time visitor, however, got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush.

My Dad didn't permit the liberal use of alcohol, but the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis. He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly, and pipes distinguished.

He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing.
 
I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked — and NEVER asked to leave.
 
More than 60 years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first. Still, if you could walk into my parents' den today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.

His name? We just call him "TV."
 
He has a wife now. We call her "Computer."
 
Their first child was named "Cell Phone."

Their second child was known as "i Pod."
 
And just born last year was a grandchild who was named "i Pad."

Having trouble selling your house? Install a roller coaster to show it off properly like this owner did in the Netherlands and you will probably unload it in a jiffy. Have a LOOK. (1:30)

This kid’s reaction to missing his second practice putt is almost identical to Tom Macris’ reaction over a putt he MISSED the last time we warmed up on the putting green at San Jose Muni before heading over to the first tee. (0:47)

If you enjoy looking at illusions, you should find THIS one sent in by Alice Murphy interesting. (1:45)

Buying an ice cream cone from THIS vendor in Turkey isn’t as easy as it may seem. Then again, the show may make it worth a short wait. (1:16)

You may have heard about a Saturday Night Live skit dealing with the Ferguson riots that didn’t make it onto the show. While a portion of it aired on Bill O’Reilley’s “No Spin Zone” yesterday, you can click HERE if you want to see the full skit. (4:50)

Sharon Lansdowne sent in THIS short clip that explains why Scotsmen are not as welcome on Australian construction sites like they might be in…say…the Castro District of San Francisco. (0:30)

This second contribution from Sharon is unusual in that it meets all three criteria for a winning video; it is interesting, educational and humorous. The CLIP is all about owls and should be worth a few minutes of your time (4:20)

Here’s a Christmas song sent in by Bob Tenbrink and Alice Murphy that is gaining steam on the Internet like it has each year for the past three years around this time. It even includes the lyrics so you can sing along. So clear your throat, click HERE and go for it. (3:35)

When it comes to singing Christmas songs, of course, no one does it better than Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire. They are as much a feast for the eyes as they are for the ears, so have a LOOK and listen. (4:20)

From Bill Leavy and Don Hale comes our final item for the week. It’s a moving new commercial produced by the Sainsbury’s supermarket chain in the United Kingdom has gone viral worldwide over the past several days. The ad is set on Christmas Eve of 1914, when troops fighting in the trenches of World War I agreed on a series of unofficial truces.

In the commercial, the fighting soldiers can be seen greeting each other, then playing a game of soccer and ultimately returning to their posts after exchanging gifts.

Reviewers have unanimously agreed that the ad is among the best they have ever seen. “This advert is wonderful, the best by far this year,” one wrote. “The best part about this is that it really happened,” wrote another.

According to The Blaze, the proceeds from the items featured in the commercial will go to benefit organizations that help the armed forces.
