Vagrant Aided By Police Officer Morphs Into First Rate Media Whore

I figured additional aspects of this story would develop.

It seems the vagrant provided a new pair of shoes by a good natured police officer was seen once again lurking barefoot around the streets of New York City.

It seems he has placed the shoes in hiding, thinking they will grow in value as a recognizable icon from the early days of social media.

It might be one thing to think a few steps down the road in terms of investments and the future.

However, this indigent has crossed over the line into outright greed.

No one would have known about this act of assistance without it having been photographed by a passing shutterbug that uploaded an image of the touching moment to Facebook, from where it went viral.

Now the recipient of the photographed act of kindness is demanding his cut of any royalties that might accrue or some other form of compensation since no one asked permission to take his picture.

Hopefully, he will get frostbite as a result of his decision to go discalced, but that will probably just earn this bum an even larger government handout.
