A lawyer would know that there would be no viable case against a person taking a photo of another person in public and then posting it on the internet, as no one in public has any legal expectation of privacy.
" [...] he says the photo of the officer's act of kindness went viral without his permission."
I doubt he'd understand that he has no legal expectation of privacy if he's outdoors, or in any public area - which, of course, includes the sidewalk. It's perfectly legal to take a photo of someone in public and post it wherever you please.
So there's no "piece of the pie" for him in this matter ... except for his new pair of $100 shoes and a bit of newfound fame, that is.
