The recruiting homeless people Friday to wait in line outside a Pasadena Apple store to purchase the new iPhone 5s was criticized by homeless advocates.

Andy Bales, who heads the Union Rescue Mission on skid row, said this was just one of a number of ways that homeless people in Los Angeles have been taken advantage of.

"It's thoughtless greed How in the world could you tolerate yourself after taking advantage of somebody who's at the end of the rope? It's unbelievable," Bales said. "You're already struggling with homelessness and at times hopelessness and then somebody offers you a little bit of hope and then dashes it away."

Pasadena police arrested two people when the scheme broke down Friday morning. But officials said they don't plan a larger criminal investigation.

"It's not a police issue. It's a business issue," said Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson.

Why wouldn't they just go "Apple picking"?

At least they can use the phone, for a while, dump it, then get another one?

The phones have a unique serial number. Takes some brains to defeat it, and black folks don't usually have an abundance of that. They only steal from the government because the government provides them with an instruction sheet.

Smartphones are now too smart for many blacks who steal them to figure them out. So many ways to "phone home" automatically. They get caught regularly.

LOL! That's hilarious! What an utter idiot...

With my post, I was thinking more along the lines of using the 'phone' part of the phone, then dumping it on some unsuspecting dupe, by selling it on Amazon, Ebay, or in real life...

The new iphone operating system lets you brick your phone immediately if it's stolen.
White folks win again!
