While on duty Officer Larry DePrimo came across a homeless man begging for change. Noticing that this man had no shoes and socks on, DePrimo, with his own money, purchased the man a pair for $75. The boots originally cost $100 however the store employee also contributed to this act of kindness buy using his employee discount.
The man who received the boots said “He was the most polite gentleman I had met,” about Officer DePrimo. The good hearted officer said in an interview that “It was freezing out and you could see the blisters on the man’s feet,” and that he was freezing while wearing two pairs of socks.
