Stop giving to street-walking panhandlers

Posted By on Tue, May 21, 2019 at 3:23 PM

Today at the Windsor exchange, there were four panhandlers working all medians and walking into traffic. Stop giving them money! They are a nuisance and a distraction. Last Sunday, going straight on the MacDonald Bridge at the corner of Nantucket Avenue and Wyse Road, a truck in front of me was giving money to a beggar (on the passenger's side) who was walking the middle of the road, just as the light turned green. As the truck took off, this asshole stood in front of me with a big grin, holding me up. Knock it off!
