Another Case Of...

...police brutality, with a twist:

Homeless man barefoot again despite officer’s gift of boots
"Hillman, 54, who hails from New Jersey, said he moved to New York almost a decade ago and has been homeless for most of that time.

The experience of being at the centre of an international story that was triggered by a tourist snapping a photo of officer Lawrence DePrimo giving Hillman a new pair of shoes and socks has clearly left Hillman feeling like he deserves more than he has so far received.

“I was put on YouTube, I was put on everything without permission. What do I get?” he said. “This went around the world, and I want a piece of the pie.”"
Oh well. At least he should be able to get the "occupy whatever" crowd onside.
