Fact is either this man had conscience enough to want to help another human being and should be applauded while we feel encouraged there are still kind and gentle people growing into this hateful world.
Or, someone somewhere in a position of power understands that the general actions of Police at this time are not in keeping with what we have come to expect and so demanded an approach, or even just an act, that everyone could be proud of.
Either way, the reasoning behind either motive are with good intention and should be built on.
Those that come here to find conspiracy in everything are half the problem, What is the point in kind gesture's if even those claiming we NEED more of them for the sake of ourselves, ruin the few there are with derision and skepticism for skepticism sake.
Some people deserve what is happening currently. This policeman is NOT one of them. Those being critical of this....think about. Oh, and ask this "Lucky Day" homeless dude if he cares about the motive behind the action.edit on 30-11-2012 by kaptabs because: (no reason given)

And here: fotoforensics.com...
Where it shows the nice convenient shoe display in the scene was added?
And the cop?
The homeless guy is from who knows when or where.
Just that it probably wasn't done in NY in winter.
If somebody tries to tell you that something is being staged.
You should care.
The entire media is nothing but a sideshow and a psy-op day after day to sway the sheep from side to side.
To shape opinions and groupthink.
It has long since been about "informing" you.
•With Photoshop, the simple act of saving the picture can auto-sharpen textures and edges, creating a higher error level potential. This artifact does not identify intentional modification; it identifies that an Adobe product was used. (Remember: if someone needs to download a picture from their camera or resize a picture for the web, they are just as likely to reach for Photoshop as they are to use any other tool.) Technically, ELA detects a modification because Adobe automatically performed a modification, but the modification was not necessarily intentional by the user
