Police Help Diligent Homeless Man

A Georgia man's incredible act of social responsibility is finally getting its due.

Ray Norman is homeless, and car-less, after an accident totaled his car.

He had to make a court appearence in connection with the accident, but with no money and no car, and the courthouse was 29 miles away. So on one of the coldest days of the year, he walked 29 miles over 8 hours in the freezing cold.

It was so cold that the officers at the court pooled their money to send him back to the shelter in a cab.

Now, even more people are stepping up. WATCH video above.

    A few days ago Canadians learned about an incident at an Edmonton Alberta airport. A Pipe bomb incident that once again gives us more reason to understand why Americans do not trust our security or lack of security concerns and efforts to reduce or prevent any kind of terrorist actions. Such a serious event and the only talk among Canadians is about other things and a handful who have actually commented IF they were approached by media for a comment! Authorities clearly don't think its much of a big deal. Since it took 4 months for the public to learn about the incident. It was 4 days after the event when the RCMP police were contacted about a pipe bomb found in a camera bag.
