This isn't really a cop bashing thread, I am just curious why the police don't have blankets or something they can give people when the weather is cold like this. Nor why there isn't a shelter around. Heck, could have just arrested him and given him a warm bunk for the day.
If I was that cop- and this is only me- I would have given that man my jacket.
or at least the beanie.
I mean damn- cop or not- -30 below- help the damn guy out somehow.
This is why cops are not rerspected throughout society.

I remember a thread here about a screening for low IQ for police officers, with the premise that high IQ foments distraction and questioning of orders. I think it was in regards to a city in the US...
@ others in this thread.
Before people just stereotype all police maybe they should take the time to actually understand the can do's and can not's before making blanket and extremely ignorant comments. Absent a crime being committed that allows for the arrestee to be booked into jail, or a mental condition where the person presents a danger to himself or others, we cant force them to go anywhere.
I love it when people bitch about the police forcing something only to bitch when the police don't force something.
I am sure the public officer has lost his or her job by now, so at least he or she is gone now.
