    Most cops aren't assholes; at most they're just stern, and that's due to their work environment. I left the lights on in my vehicle yesterday before class, because I'm an idiot, and I was completely locked out of my vehicle. When the battery dies it locks up the locks itself, and even with the key I couldn't get in. It's a terribly stupid design, but that's what happened. I called the local police on campus and a younger officer showed up, knocked a wedge into the door, and reached a metal bar in and pulled on the inside handle. He wasn't an asshole about it, and I thanked him before he left.

    That's not the best example. That officer was just doing his job, sure. But it was still great that he was there. The officer in that article, however, is especially kind. I always feel terrible when I see a homeless person. Life can be so hard for them. There's nothing wrong in caring for your fellow man and showing some empathy.


    Edit: Look at the amount of thumbs down goodhearted comments have received under the article. Some people just love being $#@!s.

    I hate cop hate.

    Hear it too often, usually from degenerate-y type of people who complain cops going after them for speeding or having a go at them for drinking and driving.

    Go figure.


    And to this officer; good on ya mate!

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Nice story, it's a shame they are claiming it was staged though.

    A photo of a New York City police officer kneeling down to give a barefoot homeless man in Times Square a pair of boots on a cold November night is melting even the iciest New Yorkers' hearts online.
    On Nov. 14, NYPD officer Lawrence DePrimo, who was on counterterrorism duty in Times Square, saw the older homeless man without shoes sitting on 42nd Street. DePrimo, 25, left and then returned with a pair of $100 boots he bought at a nearby Skechers store.
    "It was freezing out, and you could see the blisters on the man's feet," DePrimo, a three-year veteran of the department who lives with his parents on Long Island, told the New York Times. "I had two pairs of socks, and I was still cold."
    The random act of kindness was captured by Jennifer Foster, a tourist from Florence, Ariz., who was visiting the city. Foster, communications director for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office in Arizona, emailed the photo to the NYPD with a note commending DePrimo.
    "The officer said, 'I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let's put them on and take care of you,'" Foster wrote. "The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man.
    "I have been in law enforcement for 17 years," she continued. "I was never so impressed in my life. ... It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost."
    Foster's photo was posted on the NYPD's Facebook page on Tuesday, where it received more than 320,000 "likes," 77,000 "shares" and 20,000 comments—most of them praising DePrimo, who seems to have restored Facebook's faith in humanity.
    "This is one hell of a police officer," Desiree Wright-Borden wrote.
    "Wow," Jack Horton wrote. "It's nice to know there are still good people out there."
    "Angels truly do walk on earth!!!" Charlene Hoffman-Pestell wrote.
    Some commenters, though, were skeptical, saying the photo could have been staged.
    "Clever stunt!" Louis Zehmke wrote. "The hobo is 'parked' at the entrance of a shoe shop."
    But Foster claims DePrimo had no idea he was being photographed: "The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching."

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.
