Default Street corner begging, report............

Just a note to some of you on the West side.... There is a minority individual that works the intersection corner where Navy Boulevard, merges heading South with New Warrington Road. I see this individual almost every weekday afternoon with a painful looking, severe limp working his turf......... I have often wondered what his story was until now....
Well my father informed me this morning that he see's this individual most every morning just up the road at a convenience store (Corry Field Road and Navy Blvd) around 7 to 7:15 am buying beer with a perfectly good hop in his step and no limp..... I just thought I would share this with anybody that is thinking of contributing to his non working, heart string tugging, scum bag, 7am beer drinking ass....... Maybe this is a little harsh, but what do I know. I have only been filing tax returns since I was 14 years old....
Sign me, one of the tax paying 53% Mules of the US population........

All those guys/gals are cons, I think there should be a law against it, makes the town look like trash.

I saw my boy John Cajones from 20/20 do a story on one of these guys that blew my mind. He was panhandling a highly traveled road and begging like most you see and then walking through the woods and getting in his Mercedes and driving to his nice house in a gated community in the evening. There was no law being broken and they interviewed him and he said he took in over $175,000 the previous year and actualy paid taxes on it and as description of job put down something like fundraiser. Crazy as Hell right????

They are there because people give them money. QUIT GIVING THEM $$$$ and they won't be there.

if you feel the need to be helpful you are being a nice person, nothing wrong with it at all and you should feel good about doing so.
but instead of handing your money to a drunk/bum/addict/theif this list goes on and on, pm myself and you are more than welcome to give me as much as you wish. i work every day, single father , did i mention i work every day?... i dont need the money but would take anything given and put it towards 1 of 2 items/things . either it would help fund the rebuilding of my atv or it would go towards a new pistol since my little girl is headed to middle school now....
and i accept paypal lol

I like the ones that entertain, you never see that here. At least then you are attempting to "work", in a sense, for a tip. In costa rica a girl came out by the red light and did all these tricks throwing these rings in the air, it was really cool. I gave her 1,000 colones, I think.

I saw that guy last night before I went across the intersection to get taco bell. He's got a nice drag mark going
