but he should have given that $100 to the Salvation Army for a more effective use of his money.”
...I disagree. $100 doesn’t go very far. But a “YouTube” video of a cop trying to help a homeless man is priceless. It went viral. I don’t give nor do I encourage giving to homeless people. I give to the SA. I do believe in the Christmas spirit and that gesture by the cop got mine re-lit.

But, when you find out the “homeless” man refuses offers to live with relatives, apparently sells the shoes for drugs or booze, and demands his “piece of the pie” from the photo of the generous cop helping his disgusting, ungrateful, self, it tends to quench any spirit of generosity in many people and replace it with a spirit of cynicism.
The girls were all happy to pull over and give him food. I wasn't done; I pulled off of the cross road into a parking lot where we could see him but were hard to see. He took a drink, and ate a few fries while looking around, then walked to a dumpster an threw the whole thing away.
The girls were really mad! They wanted to go tell him off. My point? If he was really hungry, he wouldn't be bu the freeway. This is his job. He sells felling good about yourself. He, and all like him are frauds. Find a good charity, Churches are usually good choices, donate there, it's where people in real need go.
