They neglected to mention WHY he left all of his belongings behind. Mental illness? Intellectual disability? Criminal past? Or maybe I'm overthinking this and the guy just wanted to get away.

Which is where you want to slap these idiots around a bit - God intervened to give him a psycho attack bc of his love ??? and then bc he's such a good guy he organized for the pic in the paper ???

You're kind of an arshole aren't ya.

So nice of the story to tell us why the hell the guy was living on the street rather than back home with his family. Can he count to potato or what?
