Zero Tolerance for Panhandlers
Original post made by Missy, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Dec 20, 2008
Please do not encourage the Panhandlers which have been working the corner of Trader Joe's and MacDonald's parking lots (at Pimlico and Santa Rita.) I recognize this same group (all men) who worked this corner last year. They have a beat up old brown van with a sign "Family Stranded" (what "family"?!) and a tool box sitting there, but I guarantee it is just a "prop"! Funny how that van just started right up and they pulled away when it was time to go!! And then they are back the next day! These low life are taking advantage of the kindness of others during the holiday season. I reported my suspicions to the police, but they claim there is "nothing they can do". What a shame!
