Fla. cop surprises girl in need with new shoes

The officer noticed the girl's shoes and socks were old and worn so he went out and bought her two new pairs

MELBOURNE, Fla. — When a Melbourne police officer walked into Croton Elementary School last week, a first grade girl caught his eye.

“He said he saw her walking by and the front of her shoes were flapping in the breeze, they were just split open in the front,” school bookkeeper Renee Carr said. A teacher said the girl was wearing her brother’s socks that had holes in the toes.

A short time later, the officer — whose name the school staff did not remember — returned. From inside a Walmart bag he revealed two new pairs of shoes, one fuchsia, the other bright orange. There were socks to match.
