GAT_00: Give the poor guy his money and move on.
Abacus9: Sure is a lot of derp in this thread. The woman isn't being sanctimonious, she raised money for donations and offered to help. She can use the money any way she wishes, regardless of what the homeless guy wants it for.
SnarfVader: I think the most outrageous part of this story is that the pound would put the dog to sleep over a farking $400 bill, especially since they know it's not a stray and has an owner. A dog is not a car and the pound shouldn't operate like a farking evil tow truck company.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: chewielouie: It's NOT his money.It's more his than hers considering people donated with him in mind.
randomjsa: If somebody gave me 400 dollars to get my beloved pet back I wouldn't be crying about the other 1600 I think they owe me, particularly if they said they were going to pay off my bills with it.The only kind of person who complains in this situation is somebody who had no intention of using the money responsibly anyway and it would not have surprised me a whit in the least if this guy had been given 400 dollars and not picked up his dog with it.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Yeah, she raised the money for the guy, so either give him the money, or refund it to those who donated. Don't hold it over his head on some sick moral power trip.
RobSeace: 911Jenny: Technically the money was raised for the dog, why not ask him what he wants?So, she should buy $1600 worth of steak?
GAT_00: She said on her Facebook page that she wanted him to realize the money was a blessing and that it should be used wisely.FFS you overbearing idiot. If the guy's homeless there's a pretty high chance he's got something wrong with him and a couple of thousand dollars will not put your life completely back on track, not when mental illness is a high possibility. You don't get to be all high and mighty because you did a good thing. Give the poor guy his money and move on.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Sanchez wanted to act as an "accountant" for him until the money ran out, as she did not want the money going to drugs. She said she has had her life and the lives of her children devastated by drug loss, and did not want to encourage any addiction.Wow, what a sanctimonious coont.
gaspode: BarkingUnicorn:Yeah, too many homeless bums with dogs they can't afford.The dog didnt cost 400 dollars, the 'we imprisoned you over some triviality, then confiscated your stuff and now you have to pay what to you is a fortune to get it back or watch us murder the dog haha oh by the way you are poorz so double haha die in a gutter' system did. For all I or you know he had no trouble keeping his dog fed.
WildManBand: I brought food to a begger once, and she basically said "what the fark is this? I need cash." I now assume everyone begging is a crackhead. This guy sounds like one of those ingrates. Give the needy food, water, and services; not cash.
Rufus Lee King: SnarfVader: I think the most outrageous part of this story is that the pound would put the dog to sleep over a farking $400 bill, especially since they know it's not a stray and has an owner. A dog is not a car and the pound shouldn't operate like a farking evil tow truck company.That's the first thing that struck me, as well. "Give us $400 or we'll kill your dog." Really, what the hell?
