Last week a photo of Officer Lawerence DePrimo kneeling beside a homeless, Jeffrey Hillman, giving the man a pair of boots went viral.

Now according to the New York Times Hillman is barefoot again. Why you ask, Hillman gives the answer, “Those shoes are hidden. They are worth a lot of money. I could lose my life.”

It doesn’t sound like Hillman was too grateful for the help he received from Officer DePrimo, “I was put on YouTube, I was put on everything without permission. What do I get?”

The 54-year-old added, “This went around the world, and I want a piece of the pie.”

Looks like you can only help someone if they want to be helped.
