    Florida police officer pictured sharing meal with homeless man because 'nobody wants to eat alone'

    A police officer has been praised by thousands online after she was pictured sitting down and sharing a meal with a homeless person.

    Sgt Erica Hay brought the man some food and a drink after she saw him alone at a petrol station forecourt. She then sat with him on the kerb as they both ate their meal.

    Unbeknown to the officer, who works for Ocala Police Department in Florida, a passerby who was touched by the moment took a photo of their encounter.

    TiAnna Greene posted the photo on Facebook saying: “I don’t know this officer, but, I admire her today and everyday.

    “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!

    “If anyone knows this fine officer, please let her know that she made a difference today not only in the life of this gentleman, but in the lives of everyone that she comes in contact with.”

    It has since been shared over a thousand times by users praising her act of kindess.

    Sgt Hay told TODAY: “He was just there by himself alone, so I just grabbed food and went back to eat with him. Nobody wants to eat alone.

    “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.”

    Very touching. It's nice to see something positive that the police are doing for a change.

    That doesn't sound like a real police officer. Did she taze him just after this photo was taken?

    Aw it's Ocala, it's a small town right outside UF, with lots of horse farms. It's nice to hear. Usually you don't hear much from there, maybe convenience store robberies and gun incidents.

    It's probably her husband, and who spells curb kerb?

    Cops generally get a lot of negative press - much of it justified, calm down - but many of them do have a strong sense of compassion and are almost like outreach social workers in some instances like this one. They aren't all bad.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
