Another reason Why I Don't Give To bums

From the Blaze:
Police in a small Louisiana city arrested a “homeless” man asking for money from strangers after he allegedly urinated in public — and what they found in his pockets resulted in them using his story to spread awareness.
“Transients, also known as beggars or homeless, are often a hot topic of debate for Slidell residents. There are people who feel these individuals all need to be arrested. Some feel they should offered help. Some feel we should just leave them alone,” the Slidell Police Department wrote on Facebook May 22.
“Literally, everyday, someone either calls Slidell Police or sends us a message on Facebook asking us to do something about this ‘problem.’ Some people feel sorry for these individuals, other don’t. Granted, some have legitimate issues, and we do everything we can to offer them help, but those are far and few between,” the department continued.
And the money these guys get:

The amount of money many bums bring can be staggering.  Some bums in Vegas make upwards of $25 an hour, which is more than I make.
So, I don't give any money to the bums who hang out on the roads, trying to make me part with my money.
