A large portion of those homeless are veterans who served their
country. That makes their treatment especially pathetic.

If you don't want to help a panhandler just say no to them. It's
not that difficult. I can see arresting an aggressive panhandler
but those are just a small minority of them.

Wrong.

The "veteran" homeless were the enlisted who went to drugs because they couldn't handle the fact they signed up to be murderers, or those with a few years in who feel obligated to receive free shit.

Sorry you don't like your chosen occupation, I don't either right now, this doesn't mean either of us should get a handout.

Yeah yeah we know the line...

A chinaman took your legs during the korean war but you went out and achieved anyway...

f*cking hand out..... its like a DJ scratching a f*cking record with you types..

Han
han
han
haaa
haa
handout..
handout..
handout..
handout..
handout.

That's a horrible DJ.

I hope you understand just how many are taking advantage of your stupidity though.

Go home and feel good you just helped a "homeless" guy out, then get on here and batch about the gangs and drugs in your neighborhood.

Tip: You help pay the thugs.

I got ticketed in Spokane as far back as '04 for giving a blanket, a coat and a pack of cigarettes to a homeless man.

We, our family, keep a variety of items for homeless people in our cars, ie, sleeping bags, clothes of various sizes and genders, food, can openers, tobacco, paper/pencils, cards, dice, books, small bottles of brandy for cold nights, dog food, gift certificates, etc. When someone is in need, we pull over and let them go trunk shopping.

Not one of them have ever taken more than they need and they are grateful that they are not totally forgotten and that someone shows care and love. Yes, a lot of people are out there because of drugs and alcohol but so what. Many refuse the offer of brandy. Some just want to tell their story.

Their survival needs aren't any less important than yours or mine. Many of them expect that we're going to throw a bible at them or want something in return and are surprised that it isn't so. Many suspect that we do this to feel good about ourselves, this too is a false assumption. We never feel good about it, this isn't a feel good charity; we haven't done enough. No, we don't do this to feel good about ourselves, we do it because without it, they for whatever reason they abandoned, hungry and cold or without shade.

Those of you who will scoff at this, just remember, your day is coming to.

Stay strong, clearly you live somewhere with people who actually are in need and not just out for a high.

The majority of people will get burned more than enough and give up on it all.

Protip: Offer to buy them a sandwich and drink from a nearby shop. If they refuse and ask only for money, you have an addict.

That's just the thing, it doesn't matter to me if I get burned or not. That isn't for me to decide. If they need a fix, of course I'm not happy about it but to some, that's all they have. High/drunk or not, if someone is cold, they need a blanket. Need and deserve are two separate issues.


Sorry to hear that Shakey1. If I see you on the corner, rest assured, I or another family member will pull over for you too.

I have no Compassion at all for the homeless in my area.

The same bums I see standing on the corner begging are the same bums I see in our neighborhood flyer listed as Sexual Offenders and more than once they've been arrested for breaking into peoples cars,homes and buisnesses.

I profound succeeded in petitioning the County to remove a bus stop where they would air and shoot up in broad daylight and also succeeded in getting the vacant commercial properties in this are cleared so they had no where to sleep or hang out.

I've personally watched them trade off there "Veteran Signs".The local police dept. was a great help in removing them.They started to issue 500$ panhadling fines.

It's been a huge problem in this area and since we have gotten serious about it there have been 60% less crimes associates with them(break in,fights drugs,shop lifting prostitution).

There a disgusting bunch of useless mouths that suck the system dry for all its worth and want more.

That's just my area and I do realize that there are decent people that are in bad situations but when you see the same scumbags day after day you get to the point where you don't care.


Go ahead and call me what ever you want but I think they should all be rounded up and sent to "Internment Camps" where they have housing if they wanna work foe it.At least they would be giving back to the community instead of destroying it.

But on GLP you are hating on Blacks? Where is the love?

April 9, 2012, 5:26 AM

An electronic road construction sign near Dearborn, Mich. displayed a racial slur early Monday morning, targeting a Florida teenager who was fatally shot in February.

The sign referenced Trayvon Martin who police said was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in self-defense. It has yet been decided if Zimmerman will be charged in the shooting.

The Michigan Department of Transportation sign, which read “Trayvon a N*****,” is located on Interstate 94 near Addison Street, west of downtown Detroit, WDIV reports.

I'm not saying that it couldn't happen to me.


I've taken the last 18 years of my life to ensure that it doesn't.

I bought a house that I could afford then picked up a 2nd part time job and paid it off in 10 years.I saved my money and bought vehicals I could afford and paid them off.I have financial secured my future for the sake of my children.


While everyone else was buying homes that it took 2 paychecks to support I was breaking my ass to pay off the one I could afford on my salary alone.

While everyone else bought cars and trucks with 22s so they could look good to there friends.I was rebuilding my on and buying used tires.

While everyone else was watching Jersey Shore I was researching the "Credit Default Swap".

While everyone else was sleeping I was wide awake and making preparitions for my future.

They thought it was a typhoid epidemic until they noticed bullet holes...

RE: 10 Unbelievably Sh**ty Things America Does to Homeless People
good post astrochik


but here in austin the homeless have gotten very aggressive

the no sit rule:
you go on congress down town and starbucks put balled knobs on their windowsills outside to keep the homeless from sitting on them and begging customers...

isn't starbucks a caring corporation for peoples' rights?

many homeless work corners in groups
and i bet they make a lot of free money

i must sound uncaring but my point is not all homeless are 'innocent'

many choose that lifestyle

many are forced into it..

i can only imagine how hard it is for a woman (or child) to be in that life...


there are terrible stigmas to being homeless but as anything and anyone there are those who work it..

i hope no one becomes homeless..and homelessness is being exposed
in the environment of fear unless one takes the aggression/gang route

peace Heartflowers


we all are one or 2 steps away from losing everything if you think about it

even the so called 'well off'

what is defined as well off?


and what is the happiness quotient?

Quote:1. Outlawing sitting down. People are allowed to exist in public, but sometimes the homeless make that civic rule inconvenient, like when their presence perturbs tourists or slows the spread of gentrification. One solution to this problem is the "sit-lie" law, a bizarrely authoritarian measure that bans sitting or resting in a public space. The law is clearly designed to empower police to chase homeless people out of nice neighborhoods, rather than protect cities from the blight of public sidewalk-sitting.

2. Denying people access to shelters.
In November the Bloomberg administration tried to institute new rules that would force shelters to deny applicants who failed to prove they had no other housing options, like staying with relatives or friends (NYC's overcrowded shelters being so appealing that people with access to housing are desperate to sneak in).

3. Making it illegal to give people food. Two weeks ago, Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter announced a citywide ban on giving food to the hungry in public parks. Amidst outcry by homelessness advocates and religious and charity groups, Nutter insisted the policy is meant to draw unhoused people to indoor facilities where they might benefit from medical care and mental health services. Critics pointed out that the policy -- rushed to go into effect in 29 days -- may have more to do with planned renovation of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the construction of a new museum, as Isaiah Thompson reported in the Philadelphia City Paper.

4. Installing obstacles to prevent sleeping or sitting. Many cities have invested in their homeless torture infrastructure, spending thousands to install obstacles preventing the homeless from sleeping, standing, or sitting in parks, under bridges and next to public transportation.

5. Anti-panhandling laws. Standing on the street and saying something like, "Occupy Wall Street!" or "Do you have a dollar?" -- clearly falls under constitutionally protected free speech. Still, cities all over the country enforce strict anti-panhandling laws that make it illegal to ask for money, food or anything else of value around tourist attractions, and in some cases city-wide. A 2009 report by the National Coalition for the Homeless found that 47 percent of cities surveyed had some form of measure prohibiting begging in some public spaces, while 23 percent forbid it anywhere in the city.

6. Anti-panhandling laws to punish people who give. Some cities are so eager to spare their citizens the horrors of panhandling they've instituted laws protecting them from themselves. In 2010 Oakland Park, Florida, made it illegal to give money to panhandlers. The Los Angeles Times reported: Under the ordinance initially passed last month, anyone who responds to a beggar with money or any "article of value" or buys flowers or a newspaper from someone on the street would face a fine of $50 to $100 and as many as 90 days in jail. "You're going to put someone in jail for giving someone a coat when it's cold or a hamburger if they're hungry?" City Commissioner Suzanne Boisvenue said Wednesday. "For me, it's so wrong." She cast the only "no" vote at the March meeting.

7. Feeding panhandling meters instead of panhandlers.
Cities across the country have launched programs that encourage people to feed "panhandling meters" with change rather than give directly to the homeless. The bulk of the cash goes to homeless charities. While many homeless advocates applaud the giving sentiment behind the meters, they also point out that the machines can make the issue abstract and easier to detach from emotionally. As the National Coalition for the Homeless says on their blog, "Donations to service organizations are always encouraged, but we should never let these meters discourage acknowledging those who ask for money are fellow human beings. Just as ignoring the issue of homelessness will not help end it, ignoring the people directly affected by homelessness will not help them help themselves."

8. Selective enforcement of laws like jaywalking and loitering.
Many laws that apply to all citizens, like loitering or jaywalking, end up being selectively enforced against homeless people or based on race. A UCLA report on LA's efforts to clean up Skid Row found that the 50 extra officers assigned would cost $6 million -- more than the $5.7 million the city allocated for homeless services. Their favored method was going after people for infractions like jaywalking, which do not get strictly enforced against the general population. Defendants in many cities have sued police departments for discrimination in selectively enforcing the law.

9. Destroying possessions of the homeless. Police regularly conduct sweeps of homeless encampments, destroying or confiscating tents, blankets and other private property, including medications and documents, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless. The destruction of property caused by law enforcement raids clearly violate constitutional protections against search and seizure without due process, but most cities continue to rely on the tactic to clear out public areas (a strategy that could come into play in crushing the Occupy camps). Here's how a homelessness advocate described a Dallas raid in Pegasus News: ... a Crisis Intervention team from the City of Dallas (now part of the Dallas Police Department) raided the homeless camps under a bridge. All of the personal possessions of the camp inhabitants — clothing, blankets, coats, years worth of belongings — were shoveled up by two bulldozers, and four to five loads comprising the contents of the "cardboard community" were dumped into city trucks and taken to the landfill.


10. Kicking homeless kids out of school. Unsurprisingly, good educational opportunities are not bountiful for homeless children. The country's estimated 1.35 million homeless youth face a number of obstacles to regular schooling, ranging from residency requirements that are tough to meet when a family is transient to a lack of immunization records. According to a Department of Education report, 87 percent of homeless kids were enrolled in school in 2000; only 77 percent attended regularly.
