Stupid. This is what government is supposed to do in the eyes of Shirley Franklin, the “Mayor too busy to think.”
Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin said Wednesday the city is putting five “donation meters” downtown for people to contribute money for homeless outreach services.
The yellow and black meters are part of a new campaign to discourage pushy panhandlers — titled “Give Change That Makes Sense” — by city officials and community leaders.
Yes, these criminal beggars will stop their actions because there are donation meters that will be the conduit for them to get needed services.
I’m sure Franklin considers this a job well done and a good use of her time. Meanwhile, the Fire Department and Police Department are in shambles.
