OKLAHOMA CITY -
A man arrested on suspicion of panhandling in Oklahoma City told officers there was no point in getting a job, because he made "$60,000" last year.
According to the police report, an officer spotted Shane Warren Speegle, 45, panhandling near Interstate 40 and Macarthur Boulevard earlier this month.
When the officer approached Speegle and told him it was illegal to panhandle without a permit, Speegle asked if he could get a permit that day and implied the $200 fee was not a bad price.

A far more honest means of making a living that a lot of folks choose.
that’s $60k before taxes, social security, insurance, etc.
60 grand tax free is decent money in most red states.
But will he pay his fine for not subscribing to BaraqqiCare?
” A far more honest means of making a living than a lot of folks choose!”
You can say that again!and far more honest than all Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Atheists, Homos and Muzzies choose!
Wonder if the IRS would be interested in this tax cheat?
The fact that the state forces him to get a permit puts him head and shoulders above the legislators who have chosen to take some of his hard begged money. At least he asks for it.
Only if he's not purchasing Obamacare next year.
The new, I predict, also temporary CEO of Yahoo, the once hot Stanford chick, I forget her forgettable name, who came from Google, was said to work (at Google) 90 hour weeks (while still having enough time to screw her husband and become pregnant for the first time at 37), and hear this, attend 60 meetings every week! 60 meetings! Who, tell me, was more productive, this workaholic woman, or the panhandler we are discussing?
60K plus probably receiving a government check to boot.
Heck, a panhandler at a freeway exit could have done it for her!
Most panhandlers I see on Interstate highway exchanges claim to be homeless and/or disabled vets. If this guy scams people in a similar fashion, he should be ashamed of himself. At least he owns up to being lazy, since that’s exactly what he is and it’s unfortunate ignorant citizens allow him to indulge this character flaw. My guess is that his contributions would shrivel to nothing if he were upfront about taking their cash to support this lifestyle as opposed to needing it for a temporary unavoidable emergency.
Oklahoma is known as the most Conservative State in the U.S. Guess this proves that Conservatives are more giving than Liberals. But then, Liberals are only benevolent with other people’s money.
This may be my new retirement plan. Beats the hell out of being a Wal-Mart greeter.
Gifts aren't taxed.
Add in food stamps, welfare, free medical at the local emergency room, this guy uis making quite a living. Unfortunately he’s DOING IT ON THE BACKS OF THOSE WHO GET UP AND GO TO WORK EVERY DAY. I’ll bet he even has a sign that says, “Homeless, please help. God Bless.” What a sad state of affairs.
This is the sign he showed people:
“$10 more and I can go home to Mexico”
