    Please someone say there is a law against this. I guess they can`t prosecute this bitch because of the hidden cameras, but this is as bad as prostitution IMO, and the cops are all over that.

    Worse, actually, she didn`t get naked once.

    Instead of giving money to the poor, you should donate it to shelters and programs that help the poor.

    that`s awful. ive never given money to panhandlers, because i just dont have any money to give. but it makes me sick to see people that are not homeless at all to be doing it around my house. when i went to chicago, i saw real hopeless people. they smelled awful, their teeth were rotten, they were skin and bones...THAT is who i would give money to...

    its ppl like this girl that make me reluctant to give to anyone though. BLAH =[

    If I were to give money I would only give money to the elderly people, cause you kno for some of them its just to late get back up their feet.

    BUT I THINK THE REAL REASON PEOPLE GIVE MONEY IS:

    Cause humans like to help other people and we feel good doing it. Like if 3 bucks made me happy knowing (well believing) that it helped someone buy food for the day sure w.e. Like 3 bucks to a normal avg income family is nothing.

    People do it because it makes them feel better imo.

    I know a girl who does this. She would get drunk, and I had to follow her around drunk-sitting as she asked people for an "extra $20". Even after I told them "She`s not homeless. Disregard this and walk away." they would just stand there looking confused. We`re not friends anymore.

    Even I would have to say that at this point, being a stripper is a better way to make a living than by pan-handling and lying. At least as a stripper, you`re not lying to anyone. Everyone knows you`re a tramp and will pay you for it with money or drugs. But as a pan-handler, you are lying to people who are trying to help you. You are lying to people with good hearts. And it`s non-taxed. Pretty sad.

    If you really want to help a homeless person, and want to be sure your money is going to do some good, buy the person a sandwhich and a hot drink, they don`t get your money, but they get food.

    The only time I would ever give a homeless person a dollar or any type of cash is if he or she could reimburse me with some kind of act such as this homeless person I saw in Paris playing a trombone...gave him like 5 euros...like 2 million dollars in american money

    There`s a guy who lives in the same city with me, local legend says he put two kids through college with money he pan-handled. The crazy thing is, it`s 100% true. A lot of people, most in fact, probably use the money they `earn` for drugs or alcohol, but just remember that not everyone is like that.

    ok um.
    well i can`t say the girl was truly justified in her acts, but can you really blame her? the economy is f**ked right now, and it`s hard to get a job, and she wanted some extra spending money. if people want to be dumb and give her money instead of food, so be it.
    however...it does anger me somewhat that the reporters essentially stalked her to do this story when they could`ve been investigating the real thieves: corporate executives, corrupt politicians, etc.

    I`m surprised many Westerners would think these guys are poor. You guys have never seen real panhandlers. In my country, panhandlers wear dirty, tattered clothes, are barefooted, have unkempt hair, and are usually disabled to an extent. There`s NO way I`d give a cent to people who wear better clothes and shoes than I do.

    Whats so wrong about this? How is this any different than people selling get rich quick schemes? Or Pyramid schemes? Or Casinos that make it so that you will loose money? And I dont know where they got their math but 250 a day, 5 days a week is 1250. Multiply that by 52 and you get 65000 tax free. Its all about working smart not hard. This is a lot better than a 9-5 at McDonalds.

    P.S. Dont start telling that there are really people that need the money because they have the same opportunity to make 65k a year. In reality (as far as the US is concerned) there are no poor people, just people who aren`t resourceful.

    We get a lot of people asking you to buy keychains for 4 bucks here because the sign on then says "buy this please. I am deaf." Usually I start signing to them and they realize they are busted and go away. Horrible, considering people out there really need money. This girl...angers me
