In my building there’s a guy who collects disability benefits and has subsidized rent. Every day he can be seen a few blocks from here panhandling while sitting in a wheelchair. At the end of the day he gets up, pushes the wheelchair home, then carries it up the stairs to his apartment on the 4th floor.

Some folks who actually DO need wheelchairs ought to protest this phony but good.

I used to give to the people begging on the street until one day while going to work I saw the man who daily sat on his flat board with rollers roll into the entrance of a shop, get up and comb his hair in the mirrored display case. That ended my giving on the streets. There are good, caring, charitable people in America and there are those who would gladly scam them. That’s been happening since the beginning of time. It’s a shame.

Why don’t you take pictures and video then report him for disability fraud?
