Your Dad may have stumbled onto something that might save that dude's life. BEER DRINKING EARLY IN THE MORNING MAKES HIM LIMP & BEG THE REST OF THE DAY.

I hired the Mexican guy that sits on a bucket near the Christian College off ramp. He showed up drunk 4 days in a row. I will only give donations to someone who has signed up for assistance through a registered charity or family/friends and that ends quick. And never ever to a church. To many men of God driving better cars than me.

This happens all over the world. I've seen it with Gypsies in Italy, and beggers in Budapest. It makes you wonder if they worked as hard with a job, would they need to beg?

I find it funny that we're so against giving a homeless person (many of them mentally ill) a few bucks. In the mean time, we all say how great it is to give to the Red Cross so their CEO can make 500K. Many of these "non profits" are full of people making 6 and 7 figure salaries. But yes, the "company" is not making a profit. I get it.

I'm not saying there is a perfect solution, but lumping all the homeless together in one bucket does not make sense. I live a pretty good life but I have many friends who are not near as fortunate nor were they given the same opportunities. I try not to judge them and help if I can.

i have been to disasters when i was in the military and have even found myself in one with ivan and the red cross was always there with a helping hand. i dont know what the ceos make but their troops on the ground are truely angels.

the fellows and gals standing at the street corners are bums. the word is out all over the country. "come to pensacola, the cops wont hassle you and the people are suckers." this spectacle makes our city look bad. wait till one gets hit and his family sues the person who hit them or sues pensacola/escambia county or the DOT for not enforcing their own rules about workers in the state right of way. then maybe something will be done. they are not going anywhere as long as they can ride the gravy train here and more will come.

In my line of work I have seen and dealt with a lot of these people. For most of them it is a choice. They have families that are willing to help them and have offered their homes to them. However, most of them are not willing to live by their family's rules. Unfortunately, most of them do suffer from some type of mental illness and even more fortunate, a lot of them are disable retired veterans who have served our country. I agree that it has become an overwhelming problem in Pensacola, but most of them are content to get their VA checks and continue to live in various transient camps in the woods. Though, I do find that I am more inclined to help the ones who are honest saying they need a beer and a cigarette. I just recently saw one asking for coffee and a danish. I am more than happy to buy them food or offer them work, but that is not really what they want.

Find someone to run the Red Cross or any other agency like that for $100k, that would be interested.

I heard of one who was flying the cardboard with a sign on it that said;

I only need $10.00 more dollars to buy my ticket home to Mexico.
