It’s not often we get to show the world something good about a cop even though thousands of them do good every day. Here is an example of what’s meant when we say, “they aren’t all bad” or “most cops are good.”
A photograph taken by a passing tourist of Mr Deprimo kneeling down to help the man put the shoes on was later posted to the New York Police Department’s Facebook page
A tourist snapped this photo of Officer Deprimo kneeling down to help the man put the shoes on was later posted to the New York Police Department’s Facebook page and has since been viewed 1.6 million times. Officer Lawrence Deprimo bought a pair of socks and boots for the homeless man after noticing he was barefooted in freezing temperatures.
If you are one of those people who hate copes, maybe this story will change your mind about them. If anything, I hope it inspires you to do something nice for someone in need this holiday season.
