Aggressive Panhandling at Town & Country
Original post made

Recently, I was accosted by an aggressive panhandler holding a sleeping child while I was at Town & Country. I'm usually a soft touch, but instinct made me wary of her. She was actually going inside of businesses, thrusting her cardboard sign in people's faces and clearly, using her child for sympathy. I know that with The Opportunity Center next door, it's easy to blame their clients for this sort of thing. Honestly, I thought she was as gypsy given her modus operandi. European friends of mine have shared stories of gypsy beggars and her behavior was very similar. Anyone have similar experiences recently?
