I myself know this area. Your right on this city. The above statement is true about young man.his name is Mike porter. He is not homeless.over a year on this exit begging for money and has not changed his clothes at all.A pair of pants only cost maybe $20.00?The aclu says that you can't tell them that they can't ask you to help them.on the other side of this.as long as their not in your face begging for money. It's not against the law.it's not against the law in Florida either.I don't like it myself but, it's not illegal.they have right's too.it's not illegal to ask for help.remember that we are American's home of the free.United we stand.Worcester,Massachusetts

True. If there not on store property it's not illegal.if they are on a public road etc.not in your face begging for money. Then it's not illegal. As Mike Jersey said. Ask the American civil liberties union.I myself don't like it. I myself deal with the bull.remember that it's not illegal to ask for help. In Florida or any other state.Any ways it's all tax free money.try to have a tax free day.

The above statement is a fact.The state of Florida can not over ride the United States constitution in any way at all.Most of the beggars are nothing but drug addicts.so if you freely give them money it's all going to drugs. It's not rocket science people.give them food not cash for drugs.

Ms Donna. If I were in Florida I'd be calling the American civil liberties union on the Palm bay police officer and department for violating my constitutional rights.remember that we the American people are not breaking a law asking for help.we as American's can ask for help. On the other side of this we free American's can say no.

Hey Palm bay police department. I hope that you read this post. When did it become illegal to ask for help? What country do you live in? Does it matter if I ask for money and or food?or to find a job. Remember that we the American people of the United States are a free people.since when did you decide to over ride the United States constitution.are you in Florida a police state?under what law are you going by? Who told you to over ride the United States constitution.? Feel free to contact me. Did you take a oath of office to become a police officer. To up hold the United States constitution to the best of your ability? And the answer is yes.

Instead of busting this man and locking him up why not bring him to a shelter.let him or her to know where to go for help. How in the hell locking up people will change anything? Giving them a 200.00 fine for what? If their really homeless how can they pay a fine.Maybe I'll call the American civil liberties union myself on this matter.and the Palm bay police department can't do anything about it.America home of the free.

Hey Palm Bay police department. This is for you. The United States top Courts say that it's a matter of freedom. United States constitution. Free speech. You can't over ride the United States constitution. For city to steal money from the American people. Any news media want some of this? Nov 23 2015. Have a tax free day. Thief.

Where is your Delagation of Authority from Congress. Do you have an Affidavit of Fact? What you don't have a Delagation of Authority! You don't have an Affidavit of Fact! Then you have no Authority over the American People. You are indeed in Violation of The United States Constitution. You will find me in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Maybe here in Florida. Maybe I'll just be watching the Palm Bay Area.

Distracting drivers can result in automobile accidents you should think about that.

Of course if homeless person distracts drivers and results in a wreck who will be held responsible the begger person who will pay for it.

Yet I see hoe's selling their cat food for $$$! On the street. Asking for help Is not illegal in America. It's all about Your Freedom. If you want to give them money it's your business not the Police Department.

Sadly it is often the polie depts business when people defecate on the street an affect people's business.
Some of our older people are scared to go anywhere when they see a homeless person begging.
Some people are scared of them.
Some get quite forceful in demand money.
It's a very complicated issue and yes at times it is the police department's business.
Certain degree of homeless people can't help the fact that they are in that position some had mental illness problems while many others have drug addiction and alcohol problems and pu themselfs in the position. And a certain amount of them prefer to live that way.
So yes many times it is the police department business when people create problems.
