While staking out 5 Anderson this morning, a guy came up to me and asked me if I had a dollar. As you might expect from reading this site I told him to bugger off. I asked around and learned that he has been aggressively panhandling in the downtown area for the past few weeks, that he is aggressive and persistent and actually shouted at one person who said “no” to him, went into a store, made a purchase and was then verbally accosted with “you said you didn’t have a dollar and you just bought something”.
This guy moves very quickly but manages to hit up every single person in his path. By the time I got my camera out he was gone. Later I over by 5 Anderson and watched hit up about 30 people in 3 minutes. Amazing. You can just see that he finally finds some idiot to give him a dollar. Please people. Don’t feed the panhandlers.
UPDATE: Hey! Maybe Cappelli can hire him. Louis can put a sign around his neck marketing Trump Plaza, a block away. It makes sense right? You get some deadbeat bum to sell luxury condos and retail space and all he does is walk around town taking other people’s money and stuffing in his pocket as he goes.
