Homeless Man Hides Boots Purchased For Him By New York City Cop

Posted: Updated:

The homeless man who received a pair of boots from a New York City police officer is still walking around barefoot.

According to a report in the New York Times, the homeless man told a reporter he had to hide his new boots, which cost $100, because they were expensive and he was afraid someone would kill him for them.

The New York City Police officer bought the man the new pair of boots in November.

The image of the officer kneeling next to the homeless man instantly became famous on social media.
