    Its selfless acts like this that warm my heart too.

    p.s They just interviewed this officer on the news - 25, so polite, cute as can be and still lives home with M & D... Bet he now has line of girls around the block, and the precinct's phone is ringing off the hook.

    Character is what you do when no one is watching.
    But a stranger was watching New York Police Officer Lawrence DePrimo when he decided to buy a barefoot homeless man a pair of new boots on a cold night earlier this month.

    “The two things that really stuck out in my mind that night was just how cold it was and that this was the most polite gentleman I ever met, and I knew I had to help him,” DePrimo said Friday on TODAY.
    Unbeknownst to DePrimo, a nearby tourist snapped a picture of the random act of kindness — and the photo quickly went viral.



    “I knew what I was looking at,” said Jennifer Foster, who was visiting Times Square from Arizona. The moment reminded her of a similar act by her father, a 32-year veteran of the Phoenix police department, and she quickly grabbed her phone.

    I read this on line the other day.

    I say AMEN. We need more cops like this one. He is right on the front lines
    and sees people like this everyday. Thank God he reached out a hand to help.

    WTG and God Bless

    I think skeptical people often forget that the majority of police go into this dangerous profession to be of service. Especially in NYC where they are shockingly underpaid, IMO. In my teeny little NJ suburb 20 minutes from NYC the police are paid waaaaayyyy better than the NYPD and we have had, I think, 3 murders in over 100 years, and basically nothing much else than minor break-ins and traffic stops.

    God Bless this man. I have seen, and known, many golden hearted policemen over the years who dip into their own pockets to help those less fortunate, but this example really does bring a tear to one's eyes.
    My posts are and believe it or not I've put some thought into 'em.

    NYPD officer's good deed sheds light on South Plainfield man's struggles

    Graf and other members of the community are trying to help Hillman in whatever way they can, first by trying to get the Army veteran into a VA hospital, then eventually reuniting him with his two children in their early 20s.

    NBC 4 New York reported Monday night that Hillman was placed in veterans housing some time in the past year and the New York Daily News reported that an apartment was available to him in the Bronx — paid for through a combination of federal vouchers and veterans and Social Security benefits — but it was not clear whether Hillman was staying there.
