I saw the police shooing the homeless away from a shopping center where they were asking for money..


Driving through a shopping center parking lot today, I noticed three or four people holding signs begging for money. A few minutes later I saw the police shooing them away. How do you feel about this?

    I too have worked with the hungry and homeless however, there are lots of cities and counties where they're so far from a free meal that it may take more than a full day for them to walk to an area that has one. No one should give strangers rides.

    I think all people should treat others how they would want to be treated. And see themselves in other people. If someone is hungry they should have empathy and help them in anyway possible regardless of differences. And society should prevent this.

    As someone who has worked with homeless and hungry people I've seen a fair number of homeless that refuse to "look homeless" but things are not always as they appear. Just because they are clean or well mannered does not mean they aren't homeless.

    I like your answer, it's so true. You just have to try and make a personal judgement call of when to give and who is truly needy and who isn't.

    I agree. It's sad that these people literally have to beg to get change and that meager lifeline is taken away because other simply don't want them visible. Some homeless have no choice but walking to far away shelters and no money for food.
