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.
Surprisingly mean and not surprising. Wow!
I so agree with you!
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.
Homeless people can't just go out and get a job, because they lack 3 things an employer looks for. An address for tax records, a phone, and a car. Millions of potential employees who have those 3 things will get first choice over the ones that don't.
That is totally true.
Sure seems that way doesn't it.
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.
