    Ugh. Last spring every time I went to go grocery shopping there'd be an old homeless man with a cane begging at the entrance if the parking lot. When I'd finish my shopping I'd check to see if he was still there, if he was I'd look through my bags and break off a couple bananas and I started picking up a cold bottle if water for him too in case he was still there. I'd pass then out my window on my way out. I don't know if myrtle beach has laws against it but I think I'd have been okay. Those laws seem to target sharing/donating to large groups, which is even worse!!

    Once the weather got hot he didn't do it anymore.

    That's not what the OP is about. It's about arresting a person with a good heart for feeding a homeless person whenever he/she wants to. Many homeless people are not panhandlers. Get it?

    good heart? you think it's a "good heart" to feed a bunch of pigeons and then they shit all over? same thing. it's a public nuisance. and health hazard.

    when you keep giving out, they won't work for it cuz they say "why bother? they just keep giving us freebies! what a life!!!!"

    ...... and?

    Do you realize that a large portion of homeless suffer mental illnesses, they're incapable of "working" for it.

    I have sympathy for homeless people who suffered from mental illness, economic (job loss, can't find replacement, job discrimination), family issue (disown because of gay, lesbian, bisexual) and domestic violence. There are many homeless people are veteran. :(

    I know some homeless people do have job but can't afford to rent the property, especially in California.

    after over 20 years living in here.... you just know

    and we already have hundreds of organizations to help people in need. that's why you rarely see homeless people with children on the street.

    must be nice living in a luxury with 72" tv and gorging yourself with sodas and hamburgers, criticizing me instead of helping other people.

    my friends and I are attempting to organize a meet sometimes later this month or next month to hand out food to homeless people.

    After you just talked about how people shouldn't give food to homeless people because it enables them?

    As someone who spent childhood having to squat in an abandoned house and never having anything actually cooked and healthy to eat, I'm against prohibiting people from helping their fellow people out. Nobody is saying give everyone begging cash, but at least give some food or offer to buy them a meal.

    If they are panhandlers, they likely will insist on cash, but if they are in need, I doubt they will decline your offer of paying for their meal or handing them a bit of food.

    If this law actually passed or passes, I say the correct path is a little civil disobedience.
