Warmhearted Cop Gives a Homeless Man The Shirt Off Of His Back

One New York City cop gave the sweater he was wearing to a homeless man who was dressed only in a thermal undershirt Friday when temperatures dropped to 23 degrees.

Officer Carlos Ramos, 29, was assigned to look for suspicious activity near the United Nations in midtown Manhattan when he spotted Robert William sitting on a sidewalk outside the Robert Moses Park dog run.

William was sitting barefoot because his shoes had gotten soaked, and had taken off his other shirt to try and wrap it around his freezing cold feet.

The warmhearted officer told the Daily News that he regularly helps people out, especially when the weather is cold.

‘A nice cup of coffee, a tea, whatever seems appropriate,’ he said.

Ramos has been a NYPD officer since 2007. He works in anti-crime and counterterrorism for the Transit Bureau.

William told the New York Post that he doesn’t know how long he’s been homeless for, but that he used to live uptown at West 163rd and St Nicholas Ave before an argument with a roommate saw him turfed out onto the streets.

  1. There is good, bad, and ugly in all professions, law enforcement included. A person does not have t preach on the street corners to obtain the assumption of being a good person. It is what we do and how we act in our daily lives that shows others the person that we really are inside; I am proud of this officer, he seems to be a really good man.
