Photo of NYPD Cop Giving Homeless Man Winter Boots Goes Viral

More evidence cameras ought to be pointed at cops


An NYPD officer's act of charity — providing shoes and socks to a freezing homeless man — is being hailed around the world as video of his Christmas-spirit kindness goes viral.

Jennifer Foster, of Florence, Ariz., was strolling near Times Square with her boyfriend on Nov. 14 when the couple came upon a shoeless man asking for change. But just before Foster approached the man, she said Officer Larry DePrimo gave the man a pair of all-weather boots and thermal socks. Foster captured DePrimo's generosity on her cellphone.
