After the cops arrived at the scene, they congratulated Jake on his heroic effort. "That is one cool kid," said a police sergeant. "I told him he would make a great police officer when he grew up." Jake wasn't what he had done. "Stopping the bus," he said, "was easy compared to playing Little Big Planet," his favorite video game.
