If he put as much time into finding a job as he does begging he would not have been mistreated by these punks.
I don't like beggers either but I would never attack them or their DOG for crying out loud. Save the job speach for another day jerk.

The lowest of the low... to beat a homeless man and his dog. Someone who would do that needs to just be locked away and throw away the key. No redeeming value whatsoever.

You don't know a damned thing about this man, his problems, his job-hunting record, his health... nothing except what you read in a few lines of a sparse news article. And that's the best you can pull out of your soul, huh? Judging an innocent man who wasn't HURTING anyone, acting as if you know all about him and why he's homeless and whether he's been job hunting. You just couldn't wait to get your fingers on the keyboard so that you could write something derogatory, could you? Known people like you my whole life; and now that I am wiser, I run from you black cloud types whenever I see you coming. No, you couldn't feel good about your sorry self unless you did a knee-jerk judgement of this man about whom you know nothing and tell him how to live his life. You are a real piece of work. A man and his innocent dog get beaten and injured, and that's the best reply you've got. In the future, do the world a favor. When you have another thought--just let it go, will you?

P.S. Working people get beaten and robbed every day, genius. So saying if this man had a job he would never have been attacked--not necessarily true.

how sad- what sick people to beat up a guy and his dog. I don't care if you are homeless and begging for money, you don't deserve to get beat up, and the dog is an innocent animal who did nothing- why hurt the dog? Why hurt anyone to begin with? Punks with no conscious, I see it more and more these days, young people with no remorse for hurting and killing each other.
what a painful story

Next time you see a homeless person give them a dollar or two. That is the kindness that Jesus wants us to show them! It's easy to say they should just "get a job" - most people do have jobs, but these are the people who are too sensitive and bewildered to function in society. They are somebody's children and we should give them a little bit of love in the form of money so they can buy a sandwich or a drink (liquor has calories too!!)

In case you haven't noticed the unemployment rate is high, people are getting laid off from their jobs everyday and losing their jobs due to the economy or lack there of. This guy wasn't bothering anyone, two punks just thought it would be funny to beat up on some innocent guy and beat the dog while they were at it. Maybe these two punks need to get their heads out of their butts

Is there a way we can donate to this guy, or more importantly his dog? I would love to help Rocky get checked out by a vet and receive any treatment he may need.

For thoes of you who know nothing about being homeless and think that we/they just choose to be. You are a insult to humanity. Enjoy you nice paid off vehicles paid off home as you say. God gives but he also takes. It can all be taken. Another thing most homeless are VETS... & You wasnt complaning when he/she was fighting for this country & for ur freedom. So I suggest you not make rash thoughts & type them out... Your fingers may become as dense as your brain. Also it took time but I also OWN my home... Oh I had a pet when I was homeless too he ate very well actually better then myself. I hope this man & his dog get the help they need for his future. May lord help him stand up on his feet and give him the strength to sudceed.. Oh yea By the way ... didnt you know were in a recession... So when your soo broke you cant afford gas for you car to go to work and loose your job and cant pay your home owners taxes and loose your house... Now that my dear is KARMA.. May God be with you in your hour of need.

Ummm... what? Was that supposed to be a coherent sentence? I was asking for information about donating to help, half-wit. If you have info, post it. If not, stop being a troll and get off the crack.

Here's the "real story" about Charles...
He is homeless because of the choices he made in life, NOT because of the economy. He is an alcoholic and all the money he makes panhandling goes to feeding his dependency on alcohol.
Although I don't pity Charles.... I do pity his dog. Charles made his choices, Rocky has no choice. I have to say that I do admire Charles, in so far as the fact that he won't leave his dog. He has been offered shelter. He won't take it because he refuses to leave Rocky.
The city is in the process of trying to house individuals like Charles. But the city will never get to him, because they are addressing homeless camps. Charles spends the money given to him, on a hotel room when he can afford it.
We aren't going to find "The Man with the Golden Voice" in Charles. In fact, he was the exception. People like Charles are the rule.....Alcoholics who have been offered help and refuse.
What do you do with that? Really. I would like to know.
I'm not condemning Charles or others like him. I'm certainly not condoning the acts of the weak cowards who preyed on someone weaker than them. But
bashing Charles isn't helping. Pitying him and giving him money is not helping. Charles and Rocky need intervention. Who out there is in the position of intervening on the behalf of Charles &
Rocky?

In response to "more details please"..you can usually find Charles on the ramp to I71S from Sinclair Rd. The story says that he was at 71/161 when this happened, so obviously, he hangs out there as well. I know he frequents the hotels in the area of 71/Morse & 71/161
