commented on Aggressive Panhandling
I have no problem w/ pan-handlers. You have to understand that when it comes to getting a job, the odds are against them. They have to dress to impress, have a phone for the employer to call them back at, & they are competing against clean-cut people w/ solid resumes. Law enforcement's view of "aggressive" is going to be ridiculous; They're going to make stupid arrests because the filthy rich old lady said "That man yelled at me to give him money" when in reality it was nothing more than a "can you spare some change?" This will give wealthy citizens even more of an upper-hand on "cleaning up the trash" as I have heard them say & will continue the cycle of the poor getting poorer.
You want bums off the street? Give them a job when they come into your establishment. When they come in to the restaurant you work for asking if you have any left-over food, hand them a job application & maybe see about getting them a sandwich or something if they fill the app out. Soup kitchens are nice, but jobs pay the rent.
