Panhandlers are those who go up to a person and ask for money.
People holding a sign asking for help are not panhandling in the sense of the word. That is free speech, and it's getting trampled on by this idiocy. Sure, give the homeless person a ticket, put them in jail... waste taxpayer dollars because the homeless cannot pay this crap because they are asking for help for what they cannot get for themselves. And those non profit organizations who are supposed to be helping... they are a joke, especially in Boise. There is no help coming for those who are trying to get back on their feet. And don't try telling me about "oh there are tons of jobs" bullshit. Thank the right to work laws for that... homeless people already are not able to get jobs because they are already being discriminated against for being homeless in the first place.
