    When patrolling the area of Northwest Dallas, Police Officer Brian Nolff noticed something.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    In the end, more than 650 pairs of shoes were donated to kids in need.

    Nolff isn't finished just yet. He said he hopes to continue providing new shoes for kids as they return to school in the fall.
