Do you know how much a data plan is?

shiat. If you can afford a data plan but cant afford Section 8, there's a serious problem, and its NOT the system.



$45 a month is enough for Section 8? For someone on the street I would think that internet access is incredibly useful. You could look up things like weather, shelter information, and possibly network amongst people in similar situations (via email or text) for any opportunity to get ahead.

At least the guy wasn't harassing anyone. One of the guys that usually hangs out at the exit ramps around here recently expanded his "business" He was hanging outside the Longhorn, with gas can in hand, asking for a dollar so he could get his family back home for the holidays. He used to work for food, but wants cash now.


I know right?

Don't you just hate it when those uppity poor people try and get money by any means necessary!

I wish they would just keep quiet and die peacefully under a bridge somewhere.

You cant even get text messages on "Obamaphones."

If you see them, they're tiny little pieces of shiat that a high-schooler wouldnt even use. Seriously.

Last week they had kiosk outside at a local gas station advertising "Free phones with a proof of government assistance"

Not to be cynical, but it was in a low-income area, and there was a HUGE line.

MycroftHolmes: I know a few cops, though not a ton. They are people, humans like the rest of us. When most of them start reacting the same way to certain situations, I start to wonder if they see or know something that I don't. I don't sit in my ivory tower and harp about how evil they are and how things should be when I am above the fray.


Most cops I have seen are total dickwads. That is why they get up in arms about being video taped on the job, particularly for traffic stops. They are mainly just revenue generators for cities (see: speed traps)

There are certain exceptions, and I know some great cops, but a lot I have met are just bullies with badges.

Challenge: Not bad, you don't have to commit a crime or go into a group of people from a specific race and shout a slur. No this challenge is simple: Ask a NYC Street Cop (esp. Manhattan) for directions. No! Better yet, ask a NYC Cop to point you in the right direction. In reality, he will not reach into his holster; but that twitch in his eye? That's his murder fantasy, starring you. He doesn't stop crimes or help people. He yells at traffic and ignores you for $75K per year plus OT.


Disingenuous - not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something that one really does.

What does asking a Police Officer for directions have to do with the way the Police in general are trained and how they view and interact with those they deem a threat? And for that matter how they make the decision as to whether or not you are a threat.

You seem to have access to the internet, go ahead and do a little research on the issue.

Here I'll give you a hand and give you a direct link to the Department of Justice saying just that of the New Orleans Police Department. http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/March/11-crt-342.html

Mayhem of the Black Underclass: In NYC, I got treated to the same sob story by the same man, on the same train, 1 year apart. He had just been diagnosed as HIV+ so his boyfriend beat him up and kicked him out, he went to the men's shelter, but had been robbed, all he had left was the clothes on his back and his glasses. Not even shoes. Can you believe that the exact same thing would happen to a man twice in his life?


If the story works, they will keep using it.

When I lived in Hawaii, the same guy would come up to me every Wednesday when I went to a particular business office... he always had the exact same story.

What a lot of you are failing to see is this:

The cop did a wonderful thing.
The fact that it wasn't appreciated by the homeless person is moot.
The cop did a fine thing, regardless of the outcome.

It's almost as if homeless people need to make themselves more desperate looking or sound more desperate in order for people to actually provide them with assistance and/or money.

Blind Willie

Synopsis:

First published in the limited edition, Six Stories, this story tells of a man who pretends to be blind and makes his living panhandling on the streets of New York. In the past, bribing the police has kept him from being arrested but he has finally met one who may not take money for an answer.

Blatant ripoff


I have never read that story. Thanks for that.

Its resentment.

There's nothing wrong with it... but its what it comes down to.

When someone in front of me has all their groceries paid for with Food Stamps, and I put down a quarter of my paycheck for the same... it *does* feel resentful.

It doesnt matter that the person has 7 kids and no job. Its that bluntness that says "Im getting this for free. You arent."

It goes through all classes, creeds, and incomes.

I don't see why anyone would buy $100 shoes for this anyways. It doesn't seem like the guy asked for them, and there are always decently sturdy boots at Walmart or similar places for about $20. It just isn't likely to help him anymore, makes him less likely to keep them, and wastes money that could have been socks or food or whatever.

Good question. Street people with mental disabilities don't know what size shoes they wear. They probably slapped some ill fitting shoes on him, got the money shot, then later the man found the shoes uncomfortable.




Seriously though. Stop posting. You got the attention you craved. Congrats. Time to move on.

Nana's Vibrator: I didn't read any of the original threads if there were any, but someone had to have called this. Homeless people are homeless for a reason. They deserve our efforts and our passion, but you have to be willing to accept that, for many, your help is temporary. I sort of think of it as treating a terminally ill patient. Just make it as reasonably comfortable and dignified as you can while they're still on earth.


I tip homeless people for the same reason I tip baristas: it makes me feel good. What they do with my tip is none of my business, nor is it within my control.

So, this brings me back to my original point. My contention is, and remains, that cops act a certain way because of the job conditions and the behavior they have to deal with. So, if cops act like bullies, could it be because they are frequently placed in situation where control, and therefore safety, is dependent on maintaining dominance of the situation (which could be perceived as bullying).

Not saying that all police actions are appropriate, but whenever I hear 'All cops are (racists\thugs\bullies\criminals), I always stop and ask 'why do they act the way they act?'

Your missing my point.

If myself were in the position to need food stamps, I definitely would take them. There's nothing wrong with social welfare.

But you have to acknowledge that a social welfare state will breed class resentment. Thats where people become assholes.

Hence, this thread.

If a Police Officer acts like a Bully it's because they are not properly trained or mentally fit for the job.

It's really that simple.

No ignorance breeds resentment.

Social Welfare actually brings about higher quality of life and living for society as a whole.

I hold no resentment to those on Welfare or for the fact that society needs Social Welfare programs. If I can understand it's necessity, so can others.

It's a matter of education and understanding the issues.

One thing I've never understood: the 'I'm stuck' mentality. this one usually applies to inner-city 'bangers and the like.

Start a nice life that doesn't have anything to dowith gangs or drugs or being a stupid asshole.

That's not what I said. What I said was that if a cop acts in a way that you perceive as being bullying, it is because he is often in situations where actions that you would consider bullying are entirely appropriate and required.

An example that has happened more than once. A cop responds to someone disturbing the peace. The person is of the same demographic as the rest of the neighborhood. When the cop gets there, the person starts resisting, making noise, calling for other people to help him. A crowd forms.

The cop usually does what you would consider bullying or brutality. They put the original instigator down, hard. They leave little doubt to who is in control of the situation. If they did any less, they crowd would possibly be incited to violence, to which the cop would have to respond with escalating force. So, by acting in ways that you would consider 'bullying', they maintain control of the situation and reduce the danger.

Note-I am not issuing a carte blanche for all cops to use any force they want in any situation. I am just acknowledging that there is a difference in the context for most of their behavior than what most of us deal with day in and day out.
 
2012-12-03 12:18:25 PM

Masta Kronix: snip...


I think we're actually on the same page here. I was just implying that police overlook the simplest things, while you're giving examples of the worst.

Whether or not they or you want to believe it, every interaction a cop has with another person is critical, regardless of the situation. You'd better believe every officer is trained in and spoken to regularly about maintaining a good relationship with the public. The public is their most important resource.
My point was (and we're off track and out of hand) that officers can be disingenuous with something as simple as giving directions - giving the requestor the impression that they are looked at in the same light as the criminals they deal with.

Trying to connect your point - Now take that bad PR, and the situation in New Orleans; watch the police canvas a neighborhood and see how much cooperation they get. Those who are mistreated by an officer have to dig a little bit deeper and contradict their instincts to give an actual effort to help. More likely they say they don't know or don't want to get involved. If they know that officer and his group's reputation for being helpful, they're going to help just as easily as being asked (assuming their lives aren't in danger).

It helps when one nice officer provides a homeless man with shoes - but this can't just happen at Christmas; we're talking a major structural overhaul of the PD's in major cities across the US. The link you provided has examples of a disconnect between the constitution, laws, the mayor, the chief, and the ranks of his staff devolving into a form of treatment that can not be described as law enforcement. I'm talking officers need to uphold the constitution, risk their lives, put in honest effort, and maintain a good relationship with the public, paying attention to the simplest details. That's the vision. I dare you to say THAT to a NYC (or New Orleans) cop.

That is of course if they don't get caught by the police and have the capital to purchase said crack rocks to sell for their own personal benefit rather than "sling" for a drug dealer.

to the middle of the woods in the middle of the country.


That is of course if they even know of any woods in the middle of the country that they would actually like to go to and live in.

Start a nice life that doesn't have anything to dowith gangs or drugs or being a stupid asshole. But they are stupid assholes, so they say "I do what I gotta, to get by" and "YOLO" and nothing changes.


You're expecting a whole lot from an individual who doesn't have the capability to stop being homeless.

It's almost as if you don't get that people are homeless not because their lazy and/or bad people but rather because they lack the ability to become financially and most probably mentally stable on their own.

Because if you deal with the public, mostly idiots, you end up that way.

Would you really care about sitting down and making a concerted and sympathetic effort to solve a domestic violence situation when you've been to that house five times in the past two months and nothing changes? Woman refuses to get counseling, or press charges, or do whatever and you keep going back.

You can either act all sympathetic and nice and try to help again when you know it's useless or you can just act like a dick and throw everybody in jail because it's really the only damn thing you can do at that point.

Most of the cops who are jaded ass holes probably got that way through experience. If you actually talk to cops you learn they get to deal with parts of society most of us never get to see and it isn't a happy place.

ginandbacon: That we allow our mentally ill to live like this is just abhorrent. I truly admire that officer for trying to help, but individuals can't overcome diseases this insidious. We need to, and can, do better. There is no excuse for this in the wealthiest nation on the planet.


It is not so much how much we spend bugt how we spend it. In 2012 combined Federal and state spending on means tested welfare exceeds $1 trillion dollars this does not count count non-means tested programs like Social Secuirty , MEDICARE and the VA.) It was about 75% Federal 25% state split.

"According to the Census's American Community Survey, the number of households with incomes below the poverty line in 2011 was 16,807,795," the Senate Budget Committee notes. "If you divide total federal and state spending by the number of households with incomes below the poverty line, the average spending per household in poverty was $61,194 in 2011."

Of the $1 trillion only 30% reached the intended recipients. 70% goes to funding the government bureaucracy that regualtes and adminites the over 80 programs involved.

Seems like the problem is we have too much overhead.

Over Thanksgiving, I stopped in PA to get gas, get the kids a break, etc. Woman came up and asked me for a couple dollars for gas, since she was 'trying to get home'. I was going to help her out, but I evidently asked a dealbreaker question:

"Where's your car?"

Bunch of hemming and hawing, and she moved off in search of better prospects. That being said, if she was at the pump, I would have filled the tank and wished her a happy Thanksgiving. I just don't give money.

It's a very tough job. That's why they need to do regular psych evaluations on the officers who have more contact with street people, or the public in general. Police have chemical addictions too. But you never hear about them until it's too late, and see it on the 6 o'clock news.

Woman refuses to get counseling, or press charges, or do whatever and you keep going back.


This is where the job of the Police Officer ends and the role of professional help comes into play.

Yes it's difficult to get called back to the same house over and over again when one of the abused couples won't get help but that's something that has to be understood as going to happen and if you can't handle that kind of stress than find another job or institute mental health screenings to ensure Police Officers are coping with their roles properly.

You can either act all sympathetic and nice and try to help again when you know it's useless or you can just act like a dick and throw everybody in jail because it's really the only damn thing you can do at that point.


You don't have to throw everyone in jail you can calm the situation down, offer assistance and if none is accepted than leave and come back if another call is made.

You don't have to make the situation worse or escalated because you're not happy with the outcome of the situation.

Most of the cops who are jaded ass holes probably got that way through experience. If you actually talk to cops you learn they get to deal with parts of society most of us never get to see and it isn't a happy place.


Then quit your job.

There are plenty of abuse counselors and other professional health care employees who see just as worse if not worse situation on a daily basis and they manage to not let it turn them into insufferable assholes.

Same can be said of teachers, doctors, nurses, soldiers-in-a-war-zone, ........ .

indarwinsshadow: Godscrack: Fake photo-op by the cop. And right before Christmas.

Badge-lickers are creaming their pants because one cop bought a homeless man shoes. They have no idea how many laws there that target poor people and the homeless in many states. In many states it's illegal to give homeless people food, clothing or money without a 'permit'. And police are more than enthusiastic about enforcing these laws.

Homeless people die terrible deaths. Even in jail. And it's easy for poor/homeless people to just disappear. People don't care. Police don't care. Police say they're all criminals, just because of the sins of a few. Naturally, they treat them all the same way.

If the day comes when a disaster hits this planet, changing everyone's way of life and the way people live. People will all be on the same level. Money wont matter, it will have no value. All you have is your true character.

Yep. You're a douche.


Hehhehhehh...puppets.
