NYPD Officer Gives Shirt to Homeless Man

December 16, 2013  | 

A warmhearted NYPD officer on patrol near the UN gave a shivering homeless man the sweatshirt off his back Friday, the New York Post reports.

Officer Carlos Ramos, who turns 29 on Saturday and works anti-crime and counterterrorism for the Transit Bureau, removed his navy blue Champion sweatshirt from under his coat and uniform and handed it to Robert William at around 9 a.m.

The gift comes a year NYPD Officer Larry De¬Primo bought a pair of $100 Skechers boots for a shoeless homeless man on a frigid night in Times Square.

“He gave it to me. He said, ‘Don’t worry about it,’ ” William told The Post moments later — still sitting on the sidewalk outside the Robert Moses Park dog run near East 42nd Street and the FDR Drive.

Heaert warming. Interesting, predictable and sad that Stop & Frisk garners national attention from poeple who, on balance, probably don't have the vaguest notion about its constitutional premise or a practical and lawful application. This story, on the other hand, while covered, is done so with only a fraction of the zeal.

Kudos to that officer. He showed the world what inside the profession we already know to be true - cops care, period.
