Anyone else remember how homelessness was a big deal when Republicans were in the White House?
On the NYPD FB page?
Good on the cop. I hope the homeless guy can keep his new boots from getting stolen.
My young son last year did a thing with church where they made up brown bags with a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, a banana, cookie and bottle of water. Then went downtown in a group to pass them out to homeless people they came across.
My son related (with tears in his eyes) how he offered a bag to a very old bag lady, and she politely refused. My son offered it again, and she explained that she couldn’t eat it all right then, and that someone would rob her for the left-overs. So they made a deal and he gave her half a sandwich and the cookie!
I guess he’ll never be able to play the “bad cop”
A group in Amsterdam a few years ago, on very cold nights handed out pairs of thick cotton socks with hot baked potatoes in them to homeless people. The idea was that the insulated potatoes would help keep people warm over the night and in the morning there would be breakfast and clean socks.
“God bless this cop”
That’s what I would say, too. But I’ll bet under obama’s thinking, this cop would lose his job because it’s not fair that only one homeless person was helped by this cop. How fair is it that only one homeless person should be helped?
Has the world really gone down the tubes this bad that deeds like this are newsworthy? Really? Kudos to the cop nevertheless.
” [Hold on...we have HOMELESSNESS under Obama?”
It’s not obamas fault. That homeless guy is a holdover from the bush years.
This story was incredible. What a great cop they have in New York City. Being only 25, at least we have some youth we can count on to continue our great country on the right track after most of on here are gone. We need about 300 million more of them though.
Hey folks, maybe the story is true, maybe its not a PR stunt. Maybe just maybe the cop is a good guy. Believe it, there are thousands upon thousands of good deeds done every day by people who are never recognized by the media. I choose to believe this police officer is one of NY’s finest.
I found a follow up story on this picture. The homeless guy is running a scam. The shop owner said the guy got ten pairs of shoes that day. If I can find the story again, I’ll post a link. What the cop did is still incredibly kind but it seems he may have been duped.
I know a lot of cops on my own department that have reached into their pockets and given people money. On duty. Buying people food and taking kids Christmas shopping.
None of this makes the papers though. You only make the paper when you do something wrong. Oh well, barring economic collapse it’s 2 years til retirement and societal escape.
The story on the ABQ news was that the man had NEVER owned a pair of shoes. Of course I didn’t believe that and went looking for the real story. It is a nice story and I do believe it is true.
I SAW THE PICTURE GOD BLESS THAT COP
MY FATHER WAS NYPD MANY YEARS AGO
I REMEMBER HIM TELLING ME AND MY MOTHER
ABOUT HIM GIVING A COAT TO A LOCAL DOWN
AND OUT GUY THAT HE KNEW FROM HIS BEAT
BACK THEN THEY WERE JUST CALLED BUMS
NOW HOMELESS ARE ALMOST ANOTHER CLASS
IF ONLY THE DEMS COULD GET THEM TO VOTE
WILL OBAMA GIVE THEM COATS AND SHOES?
Yes, God bless the officer for his kindness. In his compassion, he looked into the face of Jesus.
Now, where is the outrage over the media lionizing the officer, but ignoring the huge problem the left has caused by allowing the drug/alcohol-addled and mentally ill to roam freely without being involuntarily, but humanely, committed to care and treatment. The Obama-Commie clones are responsible for this, not George Bush.
