NYPD Officer secret act

NYPD Officer secret act of kindness “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. 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 that receipt in his vest since then, he said, “to remind me that sometimes people have it worse.” The act of kindness would have gone unnoticed and mostly forgotten, had it not been for a tourist from Arizona. Her snapshot - taken with her cellphone on Nov. 14 and posted to the New York Police Department’s official Facebook page late Tuesday - has made Officer DePrimo an overnight Internet hero. By Wednesday evening, the post had been viewed 1.6 million times, and had attracted nearly 275,000 “likes” and more than 16,000 comments. The photograph was taken by Jennifer Foster, a tourist from Arizona. She witnessed the act of kindness and sent the department the picture and the story. She wrote: “The officer expected nothing in return and he did not know I was taking photos or watching.” Our story JUS by Julie was founded in 2011 by certified health coach Julie Maleh, who first served her fruit & vegetable juice blends to her family and community to help them lead a healthier life.
