Florida Police Buys Homeless Man Breakfast And Eats With him

Florida police officer and a homeless man sitting outside a gas station and eating together have proved popular online. TiAnna Greene shared the images of the duo on Facebook July 16.

Greene wrote in an accompanying post: 'I don't know this officer, but, I admire her today and everyday.
'It appeared that she purchased this gentleman's breakfast and decided to sit down and have breakfast with him.

'Absolutely wonderful act of kindness that seemed to come naturally for her.

'Although I was only blessed to witness less than 2 minutes of her kindness that definitely came from the heart, it truly
made my morning!!'

On Facebook, Greene's post has been shared over 1,300 times already.
The Ocala Police Department shared a screenshot of Greene's post on Instagram last week, WSOC-TV noted.

Police wrote: 'Sgt. Erica Hay caught in an act of kindness by a citizen.
'She bought & shared a meal with a homeless citizen - Serving citizens with a heart!!'

Hay told TODAY she didn't know the man she was photographed eating with. She told the news outlet: 'He was just there by himself alone, so I just grabbed food and went back to eat with him.'
The sergeant told TODAY: 'Isolation is the worst part about being someone who is homeless.

'They're isolated from everyone, and I think any type of interaction is a positive thing.
'He was great. He was nice to talk to.
'He's got a story, just like everyone else.
'It just happens to be a sad story.'
TODAY reported Green was with her daughter when she took the photographs waiting for a traffic light to change.
She told the website: 'I told my daughter, "See. That is truly a sign of compassion."
