The homeless U.S. Army veteran given a pair of boots by a New York Police Department officer was seen Sunday walking barefoot on the Upper West Side.

Jeffrey Hillman told the New York Times the boots are "in a safe place" because he worried he could "lose my life."

Hillman, 54, said he appreciated the officer's kindness, and asked what he would get from all the attention. "This went around the world, and I want a piece of the pie," he told the Times.

SOMETIMES A DICK IS JUST A DICK. TAKES AWAY NOTHING FROM THE NICE THING THE OFFICER TRIED TO DO. DON'T LET THE ACTIONS OF THIS ADAM HENRY KEEP YOU FROM DOING THE RIGHT THING.

what do you want to bet he traded the boots for a bottle of Thunderbird

Too bad! Still doesn't change the Officers kindness. You see it every day trying to help a drug addict, alcoholic or some other social problem. The talk shows are going wild over this. People are angry that Jeff got rid of the boots. Happy Holidays everyone!

Yeah right. Damn bum we're not stupid you got yourself high for those boots. No wonder you are in the situation you are in. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Officer it's true it still doesn't change what you did. You still did something that was really good for all of us L.E.O.'s out here. Sometimes these assholes just don't get it. Still proud of you though. Happy Holidays.

Well in my opinion the media really needs to step up their coverage of what good the LE community does for the people they serve. The officer did a great thing and what happens after is of no concern. That being said officers do things like this all the time.

The media is viewed as the reality by many in our country and if we had more media coverage about the good LE and other emergency services do for their community it might lighten up people's thought processes.

Instead of being a Dictator of NYC maybe Bloomberg should worry about taking care of the homeless instead of ranting about Slurpie's, sugar and gun control. But wait we may have Hillary running NYC soon.
