Judge: Sacramento Panhandlers Can Ask For Money Near ATM’s. We call this keeping with the tradition of Sacramento. After all, they have a big white building with a dome that’s full of professional panhandlers.

LIke illegal aliens, the homeless have more rights than citizens. Wait till there is lines of homeless next to an atm, and human feces on the ground.

When I lived in Portland, OR, the same group of panhandlers would hit me up every day on my way to work.

One day, they asked if I had any spare change. So I reached into my pocket, pulled out a hand full of change, and when their eyes lit up, looked at it, replied “Why, yes, I do.” Placed the change BACK into my pocket, and went on my way.

They called me an asshole, but never asked again.

I also kept cards from the local rent a bum place. They were happy when I pulled out my wallet, but angry when I handed them a card and told them to be there about 5 A.M. to get a days work.

I worked my way off the streets that way, no reason they can NOT!

I used to be an ahole from time to time and stop at places like those temp employment things like ManPower. A bunch of bums looking for day work would be hanging around and I would tell the guy running the place I wanted to hire 10 people for two days work. They would get $8.00 per hour, way over minimum wage at the time, and work 14 hours a day shoveling dirt, shoveling and raking asphalt, picking up broken concrete and load it into loader buckets to clean up the work site. And they would get paid cash at the end of the day like all those day labor places do. Never did hire anyone inside the place but I did find a few good hands who waited outside as I was leaving who wanted a job. I paid them a lot more than $8.00 per hour and some turned out to be good hands. Learned the job, learned how to run the equipment so the shovel could be handed down to the next newbie, pretty good guys who just needed a chance.

Anybody get near me at an ATM they will be looking at the wrong end of a large pistol. I keep my distance while you take care of your business, I expect others to keep their distance while I take care of mine. Especially panhandlers. Those lazy bums want some money get a job. Worked real well for me all these years.

I don’t see an issue with this from a speech perspective. So long as there is no violence or anything of that nature, I don’t think it’s a violation to hang around there.

I can see why you would not want to use the ATMs, but that is the people’s of CA’s problem more so for trying to figure out which bathroom and how racist and facist Trump is (and how he is the first to separate families for anything ever) than worrying about their homeless.
