Among the horrific videos floating around the internet this past week in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the protests that followed was the gut wrenching scene of an innocent homeless man’s every possession being burned by rioters.

Luckily, the Austin man once again reappeared on social media days later showing off his new “home”, brought to him by people who saw the video and decided to help out, buying him a tent, air mattress, food, clothes and even cash.
