So let me get this straight....

When the cops arrest the "small time" criminals, we bithc and complain that they should be out stopping the real criminals.

and.....

When the cops don't do anything about the "small time" criminals, we bithc and complain that they are playing favorites or just aren't doing their job.

A woman this morning on the southbound off ramp to interchange. When I came back at 5 from Sharon, new guy on northbound ramp to mall and the regular guy with light brown nappy hair was ending his 5pm shift and walking towards max n ermas. He did stop & look at the new guy holding his sign.

So am I to understand that the nappy haired man was going to stand in his regular spot and someone else was there, the girl. What a letdown that must've been. My sources say that at 7 o'clock last night the happy hair man was at his normal post. Quite a sauger this is. He is also known as the finger picker as I think it is a source of boredom so he picks his fingers lol . Take notice lol

Don't waste your time. Everybody knows that these people aren't really homeless. The supreme court has ruled that their "scam" is protected under the first amendment's free speech clause.
They could be living in a mansion, but as long as they're not harassing you, what they are doing is not illegal.
Be smart, just don't give them any money.

If it is posted " no soliciting" wouldn't that be breaking the law?

The Mall should invest in a crate of these and have the beggars put them up.

There. they got a job.

How about carrying your own sign in the car and pointing it at them?

I take their pictures every time I drive by. One man dropped his sign and turned his back to me as he smoked a cigarette and talked on his cell phone.
