Cleveland Police Officer Gives Homeless Man the Shoe’s off His Feet

This time of year is especially difficult for those who live on the streets. One Cleveland homeless man, though, is giving credit to the police for helping him through a very tough time. Glenn Kline was outside an apartment building on Clifton Avenue, trying to sleep, when police were called.

But instead of arresting him, they asked what they could do for him, and one of the officers wound up giving Glenn the shoes off of his feet. Fox 8’s Jack Shea has the touching story.
