    I love how real the police officer is… his kindness is very genuine.

    OMFG Id die if I saw a homeless guy like that in freezing cold. Even just without gloves on I cant bear it so bare feet would just look horrific. Poor guy is probably mentally ill. I think all people should help in such situations without it being some heroic act of kindness. Its basic human instinct and as a police officer he can probably claim the money back if it cost him. But well done anyways.

    Sorry, but this was staged. Just like most of the surprise videos on any TV show.

    Too bad outside of this staged photograph he's a slimeball psycho in real life. He also got kicked out of the Police Academy, but not before he tattooed the slogan across his back. Looks like the academy was desperate enough to let him back in.

    actually NYC police do seem to be on some PR crusade at the moment. I mean, does anybody really believe that "no violent crime monday" claim recently? I suspect theres a lot of manipulation of the stats and figures plus downgrading of certain crimes. These people in power are very shifty.

    This is so inspiring! Please check out I am currently documenting a family who is helping the homeless here in VA.
    She was arrested for feeding homeless people and they are now creating a green commnunity where people can go to stay warm and get help…Her husband is the engineering brain behind the commnunity and is going blind so its a race to finish before his eyesight fails completely. Very caring awesome people…

    That is so wonderful and humane! Oh Mayor Bloomberg, please give this man a personal handshake!! This is the ideal govt we seek. Rather than just pushing homeless out of nyc, bring Big Apple the much deserved unity that it always shows whenever least expected. Awesome gesture, it's really inspiring.

    Great story, I support a couple of homeless shelters myself about 5 times per year, wish I could give more, but living on Social Security and a (very) small pension does not make this possible . Best wishes to the policeman. And the homeless man.

    They certainly could use some decent P.R. after all the taser videos etc. lately.
