Rogue, what a foolish comment. In CA, a liberal state as you no doubt already know, people who threaten or attempt suicide are placed on a mandatory 72 hour lock up.I suspect this homeless man has some mental issues and I am not sure what the correct answer is. Because of LIBERAL laws you can not lockup someone to protect themselves from themselves.
Homeless man grateful for boots, but barefoot again
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Lookout –
The homeless man who was photographed in being given a pair of boots by a New York City police officer in Times Square on a bitterly cold night last month was spotted on the Upper West Side on Sunday. And he was once again barefoot.
"Those shoes are hidden," Jeffrey Hillman, the 54-year-old homeless man, told the New York Times. "They are worth a lot of money--I could lose my life."
It's completely normal for homeless people to not carry or wear anything nice or new for fear of being beaten or even killed. The man clearly states that's the reason he hid the boots.
