http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/nypd-homeless-man-boots-tillman-134758145.html A New York City police officer does a good deed for a homeless man he spots in Time Square.  54-year-old Jeffrey Hillman was sitting outside when 25 year old NYPD officer Lawrence DePrimo bought him a pair of $100 boots from a nearby Skechers store and gave them to him.  A tourist who emailed the photo to NYPD captured the moment.  The picture was later posted on the NYPD’s Facebook page and soon went viral.  It’s not that often that people do acts of kindness like this and Hillman was very thankful for it but he admitted to not wearing the boots because he was scared someone would kill him for them.
