SBPD warning of aggressive panhandlers

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend residents are running into more pushy panhandlers these days, according to South Bend police.

Police said they've been getting more complaints about aggressive begging tactics, and they're urging residents not to give handouts, as it can make the problem worse.

Instead, you can give to a number of charities in South Bend that help those with verified need who are homeless.

One of those organizations is the Center for the Homeless on S. Michigan Street.

This has been a problem in DTSB since the 1960's. The current crop of bums are pussycats compared to the ones from yesteryear, like Jeffrey Brown, Chin Man, Harry O and Alfred Marquis. Those dudes could beg ... and piss/crap their pants at the same time. They were multitasking before the buzzword became chic.

Are most of them con men/women? I just tell them to ask their buddy Obama to help them out. He's taken all my money...

Many are drunks and drug addicts. I wouldn't give them any money. They seem to find money for alcohol but not food

They are pan handling in my little neighborhood, not far from downtown. I think they must make some money there, or they would find a different corner. Come to think of it, wish they would find a different corner!!!

I love the girl who stands out near Target or the Mall and has a sign saying she needs money for her 3 kids. She is out there all the time...where are the kids? As much as she is panhandling, she could get a job... :naughty: :liar: :doh:
