The story of two brothers who turned this police detective's life upside down will leave you speechless

The story below is based off the transcript of the video above, produced by Jenna Diaco, edited by Roland Smith, and voiced by Glenn.

"With my parents, like I tell everybody, they always loved us, but they couldn’t take care of themselves as much as they could take care of four kids, so we were sleeping in vans. We were sleeping in campers, wasn’t the greatest place to sleep. And as soon as I walked in, it was just a lot of friendship. A lot of friendship came to me," said Josh.

"We knew their family life. We knew about their parents and everything. The parents weren’t abusive. They were just so down and out, they just did not have financial means to give them adequate housing and adequate, you know, food and water and heat and stuff like that," said Jack Mook.

Detective Jack Mook is not somebody you want to mess with. He has been hardened by the constant grind of Pittsburgh streets.

"In a 22-year career, I probably did 17 years in narcotics, and in narcotics, I’ve worked at undercover. I’ve worked at where I just suppressed the corners of street dealers and raided homes and everything else," Jack explained.

In his line of work, you need an outlet. Boxing is his. Jack’s been volunteering at the Steel City Boxing Gym for more than a decade, but just a few years ago, two young brothers stumbled in and changed his life forever.

"You could tell while there were coming it was an escape, and you could tell when they sparred, when they fought, you could really feel and see the emotions," one of the boy's trainers said.

In a place known for sparring, Josh and Jesse found peace. Coach worked with them for a while, until suddenly they just stopped hanging around.

"We became worried about it. We talked about it. We went on the lookout for them, you know, see if you see them in the neighborhood, if they pop up, ask them what’s going on," Jack said.

The boys’ parents had lost custody of them. They were sent to live with relatives where their living conditions quickly deteriorated from poverty to sheer neglect and abuse.

"I finally found Joshua December of 2012, right before Christmas. He didn’t look good—blotches of hair missing, you know, some type of rash on the back of his head, psoriasis, flea bites, you know, sunken-in cheeks. And Joshua and I went out the road, and I got him something to eat," Jack said.

"He was very quiet and wouldn’t speak much. I knew something was wrong, so I pulled over, and instead of being a coach I was being a cop on this one. I was like, you know, what’s going on here, Josh? You know, you’ve got to tell me what’s up. If you need help, you’ve got to ask those that are closest to you."

"He breaks down crying. He goes there’s dog feces in the carpet. They make us clean it up with our toothbrushes. They’re not sleeping in a bed. They either sleep on the floor or on a sectional couch together."

Joash said, "When I thought to myself at night it was always what can I do for Jesse to cheer him up the next day? The one time he wasn’t doing too good in school, but nobody actually helped him but me, and one time they brought him home. They took him upstairs, and they beat him up. I didn’t watch, but I heard the pain. I heard the crying, and after that it just kind of broke me down. And after that, I made sure nothing would ever happen like that to him again."

His brother Jesse explained, "Well, there was always trouble. There was this big fight on the street, and they picked up like a sign or something and started swinging…shootings. I don’t want to say, but there’s pills all over the street, literally thousands of them."

"I said Joshua, just hang in there. Take care of your brother," Jack said. "Let me see what I can do. And then I came home, and when I came home I just felt selfish and guilty that I have a whole house here, and these kids are going through that. So right there I made a decision to get on the ball and go get them."

The process would take time, but Jack Mook began taking the necessary steps to get Josh and Jesse under his care. Then, just a couple of weeks later, he got a little help from divine intervention when the relative the boys had been living with had a serious run-in with the law. By emergency order, the boys were sent to live with him.

"I thought I was just out to eat or something, and then when I seen the Benz on the porch and I seen him carrying him out, I was like this is the real deal," Josh said. "I still wasn’t super happy, but then once I got in the car, his words were you’re coming home with me, and that’s when the smile came, and all the stress, all the anger, all of the depression, all of the everything, it left me that day, all of it."

"Now, once they’re here I’m just getting things settled in. I’m trying to explain rules to them, what’s going to happen. Then I kind of realized okay, you’re going to be a foster parent, you know? And I also realized then I’m going to keep them forever," Jack said.

Just over two months ago, Coach got one step closer to doing just that.

"Honestly, I think when the judge signed the adoption papers, I understood why the Grinch got the big heart at the end of the movie," Jack said. "That’s what I felt like. And to see the smiles and the laughter and the happiness and their faces are filled, you know, they’re fed, they’re healthy boys. I have no doubt if I did not take these boys on they would have ended up in juvenile detention centers or some halfway house for orphans or something."

Jesse said, "If I wouldn’t have got out of there, I would have grown up to be one of those guys on the street, no job, no diploma or anything, asking for change and stuff."

"They weren’t raising us right," Josh explained. "Before, there were drugs in the house. They were bad influences. They were just no good people. It’s just I think we would have been dead. That’s what I think, and I’m very appreciative that I ain’t."

"I’m Coach, and I’ll always be Coach," Jack told TheBlaze. "And they look at Coach as, you know, the provider, the guardian, the protector, yet the best friend."

Thanks to a little dedication and a whole lot of love, this team has become a family.

"This is, you know, the greatest thing that will ever happen in the history of this boxing gym," one of the trainers said. "Nothing is going to top what this man has done through this gym and for these boys."

"He gave me the focus. He got me out of where I was. He saved me. Like everybody says, everything happens for a reason, and God works in mysterious ways. I think it’s God’s plan, but God gave us obstacles to have to overcome still to be a family right now," Jack said.

"All the stuff we’ve been through, it was all God’s plan, even though it was bad, but still, there were huge just obstacles to see if we could overcome, and we did it, and we proved ourselves, and I think now He rewarded us with a family."

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
