I live in the Bradley area and observe these so called folks pretty much on a daily basis. I see them buying beer and cigarettes in the Little General and CJ's. If they are not dropped off they drive a nice car and park on North Sandbranch Rd. or the Mall and walk down to the ramp with a backpack that may only have a small light weight item in it. Look at their shoes and how clean they are. They are not under fed or wearing torn or tattered clothing. I know of churches that have offered to take them to Beckley to the homeless shelter and they have refused. Folks they are only ripping the general public off. Beckley has a panhandling law and that is the reason you don't see them there. Here lately it has been the same subject ripping folks off. I for one don't give them anything and that includes food.

At least you have an option if you choose to give them your money unlike those thieves in the White House.

I noticed last week that when I was coming down that ramp that there was a deputy behind me and the "homeless" man took off as soon as he seen the deputy coming his way!
