- I heard from officials that these people make a lot of money every day from unsuspecting good samaritans and they promptly use it to buy drugs, alcohol or some herb that they smoke in the 5 Points Park, after their shift of begging. Giving them money prolongs their problem. They have free food, phones, Social Security Disability, Food Stamps (which they sell), medicaid, etc, etc. The police and Salvation Army try hard to get them back into society but they don't want to and are extremely beligerant. Some have homes to go back to but would rather take their drug of choice. They need bootcamp.
- To hell with the ACLU--American Civil Lunacy Unlimited--and their crusade for the bums (oh, I forgot, "the homeless"). Where's their crusade for the great majority of hard working, law abiding people who simply want to left at peace. Here's a thought. The bums advertise their plight on card board signs but has anyone ever investigated the accuracy of their advertisements? I mean, are their ads true? If not, they should be arrested and prosecuted for false advertising as any other business would be. After all, they are independent contractors who receive benefits (free medical) yet pay no taxes on their earnings. It's about time the bums are held to the same standards as all other working stiffs.
