San Francisco Police Officer Jackie Selinger says she was just doing the right thing when she bought a pair of shoes for a barefoot homeless woman on the street.
In bustling Union Square, homeless people are sometimes overlooked during the holidays. But not by Officer Selinger, who recently spotted a homeless woman sitting in front of a Skechers shoe store.
The woman told the officer that homeless shelters, which donate shoes, never have anything that fits her size 12 feet.
“I just thought about my family and the fact that we have so much,” Officer Selinger said.
So this cop offered to buy the woman something she desperately needed.
“She had already done it,” Officer Selinger’s son Luciano said. “It was completely her decision, there was no one was watching her. And, I admire my mom for that.”
This humble police officer did not want the publicity.
