Another good man in blue

An NYPD officer giving a bare-footed homeless man new boots. And the only reason we even know it happened was because someone saw and photographed it.

There is a fine line between "hobby", and "mental illness"

Good story and hats-off to the officer.

A follow up to the story:

The homeless man is not homeless, and is back on the streets sans shoes. Some people you can't help, unfortunately.
