New York City
The new police chief of New York City, Bill Bratton, has tripled
the number of arrests for panhandling as was done in the first two
months of 2012. This is a crackdown on those who sit by the subway
asking for change which is annoying, but these guys need the help. I
have never understood giving people who are down on their luck a ticket
for begging for money. This seems like kicking a man when he is down.
Do they allow these guys to beg for the fine that they will be charged
for asking for help? Unless you provide an alternative for these poor
people it will only perpetuate the problem.
