Shelly Beach beggar

Dear Editor,

The beggar at the mall in Shelly Beach bemoans me. He can be seen on a roller skate with legs folded underneath him.

The question arises as to whether he pretends to be an invalid or not. How can he hold that posture indefinitely?

His daily route seems to start in the parking area where he awaits his customers in order to sell “loose” (one or more) cigarettes.

He is in a dangerous place in that he is inches above the road surface with a possibility of being run over. Afterwards, he rows himself into the mall to start his begging among the shoppers before making a stop outside the entrance to proceed begging.

It is a pitiable sight whether he is an invalid or not.
