No soup kitchen for this beggar. Shane Warren Speegle told Oklahoma City police he made $60,000 panhandling last year.
“Why would I go get a job?” he said to an officer who approached him earlier this month,according to KOCO.com.
Speegle, 45, carried a 4-foot-by-4-foot signrequesting money for travel and food at an Oklahoma City intersection, noted DigitalJournal.com. A cop warned him that he couldn’t panhandle without a license, but Speegle suggested that a $200 daily permit was within his means, KOCO.com reported.
This is why I will never give money to these people. They make easily three times or so as much as I do.
To all those people who told me I was wrong when I said they did it for a living and had to have permits for it?
I told you so.
