Is it worth your kid getting hit to bum money at the Spring Valley bridge? These kids were standing in the middle of the street! Somebody is going to get hurt.

I think if you can't afford to play then don't. I agree with it being unsafe for them.

I watched one of the kids almost get clipped by a car yesterday. Not the driver's fault, either. Kid jumped right into the traffic lane (from the "safety" of the yellow line) just because the driver had the car window rolled down.

Any "parent" that allows their child to stand in the middle of a busy street to bum money (that probably just goes into the parent's pocket, anyway) should be charged with child neglect. Of course, maybe these rejects of parents are hoping their child will be hit so they can sue someone...

I completely agree. There were more Vinson people bumming money at Wendy's/Sheetz today! How pathetic. How do parents explain this "fundraiser" to their children- "Okay kids, we're going to go beg for money on the street since we're too lazy to actually work for anything!" Today would have been a perfect day to have a car wash, why couldn't they do that instead? I'll never give any money to people who do this.

I always said when bums do it you arrest them for it, when kids do it it's called fundraising. Lazy lazy lazy. Have a bake sale, anything. I don't give any of these kids on the road any money due to principle.

Why don't these kids do something work oriented like a car wash bakes sale or something along that line instead of begging by the road

And what do you call it when Fireman and policeman stand in the middle of fifth ave. with boots? Maybe you should go to city hall and demand that they stop doing boot drives, instead have the fireman hold bake sales and car washes. haha These kids aren't hurting anything. If you don't like it, don't donate. They do NOT need to be in middle of roads though. Storefronts are best.

storefronts are not best. I use my hard earned money to shop for my family not support your child. I cringe when I hear them yelling "donations". I was shocked when I first witnessed this. Really setting them up for real world

Storefronts ARE better/safer than middle of roads.

Firemen WORK to provide a VERY important service for our city, while providing for their own families at home. These kids play a sport that their parents pay & sign them up for. ENORMOUS difference!

You don't know me. I'm not a "dbag" just because I don't give kids money for standing in the street. I use my money to support my own family & enrich my children's lives. Also, next time you try to insult someone, try a more accurate word. I'm in no way comparable to a woman's feminine hygiene product.

They're only hurting themselves if they get hit by a car...oh yeah, except their shitty parents would sue whoever hit them even though they're standing in a road where people drive. I guess you can't read very well; I did say I don't give money to them.

I don't give a shit what firemen stand where. They're adults and have brains that (usually) have fully firing synapses, and enough common sense to watch out for cars.

Is there some sort of epidemic where kids are getting hit by cars during fundraisers? The liberal media is ignoring it I guess.

Because it must be an epidemic to be important, I guess.

Then why do you give a shit where bums stand, they are adults too.
