They were pretty open about ,at least they were with me. They weren't violent but pretty talkative. All the money you give to the pan handlers goes to drugs or alcohol, no matter what their signs say. None of them are going hungry as they get free meals and free food from volunteers /organizations. It blows my my mind people are this ignorant or blind about vagrancy. People out there really believe this is an economic and housing issue. If you truly do not want to be homeless, you will find a way to get a place to live. You can rent a place on a minimum wage if you live with other people. Drug use is a choice. I know plenty people who have had extremely hard, difficult lives and don't become drug addicts. People need to be held accountable for their actions and take responsibility for their mistakes.
