Sams Club, Des Plaines, IL: A young teen girl begging her sister was dying and they needed help had box in hand before entrance to store, I went there for lunch, (the only private resaurant available in the city)....I passed her and when she appealled her sister was gravely ill and they needed money, I said I was sick too and kept walking....muttering some expletives under my breadth for having put me in the position to not be forthcoming and to just keep silent.
Well, about 30 minutes later while I am finishing my Nathans hot-dog, I see she gets in line with money she collected in hand to have lunch......in short order, a cop came in door and ID'd the lady and asked her to go outside......young people, begging....she was probably on welfare and food stamps as the old people mused that watched this incident while eating...she looked about 17, just a tee shirt, no bra, and black jeans - she looked like she was unemployed and had no incentive to even look for work, unmarried with a baby, she was white, the baby was probably tan skinned or dark.....need I say more?
Needs the money to keep the cable and Ipad/Iphone from being shut off.
