Everyone… Meet Officer Lawrence DePrimo who was caught doing a random act of kindness on a COLD night for a homeless man in need.

He saw the man, talked with him for a bit and then felt compelled to get him some boots as

The officer, normally assigned to the Sixth Precinct in the West Village, readily recalled the encounter. “It was freezing out and you could see the blisters on the man’s feet,” he said in an interview. “I had two pairs of socks and I was still cold.” They started talking; he found out the man’s shoe size: 12.

As the man walked slowly down Seventh Avenue on his heels, Officer DePrimo went into a Skechers shoe store at about 9:30 p.m. “We were just kind of shocked,” said Jose Cano, 28, a manager working at the store that night. “Most of us are New Yorkers and we just kind of pass by that kind of thing. Especially in this neighborhood.”

Mr. Cano volunteered to give the officer his employee discount to bring down the regular $100 price of the all-weather boots to a little more than $75. The officer has kept the receipt in his vest since then, he said, “to remind me that sometimes people have it worse.”

The photo was taken by Jennifer Foster, a civilian communications director for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona. She said the moment resonated for personal reasons: She remembered as a young girl seeing her father, a 32-year veteran of the Phoenix police force, buy food for a homeless man.

 

I for one am glad this was caught on camera. The Cop – ROCKS, The Sketcher Manager – ROCKS, and the lady who took the photo, well you ROCK TOO!!!!

Reminds me again why I have this blog… The Feel Good Depot Appreciates your random act of kindness and appreciate all who were involved.
