Thank you John McCullough for your “mad as hell” at panhandlers (letter Feb. 11), as well as the other responders.
I also am mad at the people who keep giving to these lazy individuals, causing this problem to now become an explosion.
I am sick of my tax dollars funding people and encouraging them not to work.
I am sick of the bleeding hearts who all have excuses for the behavior of these lazy bums begging for handouts. None of them are willing to work.
I am sick and tired of people making excuses for them. Hello! People who make excuses for this epidemic are a big part of the problem.
It’s time these panhandling adults put on their daddy pants and get to work. Quit stealing shopping carts!
As for the city allowing this to happen around my neighborhood that I work hard to pay taxes for, step up and start cleaning this city up. This isn’t fair to the hard-working, taxpaying citizens!
