That goes especially for Meechelda and Barracus.  Three weeks of vacay at $4 million dollars in Hawaii.  This is honest love for humanity.

“The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching,” Foster wrote with her Facebook post.

Freddie Torres of Spanish Harlem said he has seen the recipient of DePrimo’s generosity.

“I give him a couple of bucks because he’s going through the garbage,” said the 61-year-old photographer. “He’s in rags, but he doesn’t beg. He’s a very quiet person.”

DePrimo called the experience “humbling” and said he keeps the receipt for the boots tucked in his bullet-resistant vest.

“I think it’s an important reminder,” he said. “You see something like this and you remember that people have it worse.”

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly gave him another memento: A set of NYPD commissioner cuff links.

DePrimo’s extraordinary gesture left John Harry, who is homeless, in awe.

“That’s mighty nice of that cop,” said Harry, 65. “Last time someone gave me new shoes, I think I was 10 years old.”
