Maybe take a shower and clean up your residence?


*stares at you* Golly gee! I never thought of that!


How many brain cells died to have you cough up that gem?

Yeah, I looked into it a bit more. It seems that Myrtle Beach is pretty much on the border with NC. Some people even argue that it is in NC.


Probably like Charlotte- a little bit in NC, a little in SC. I call 'em Nyuck and Suck Carolina, myself.

Yeah it's right there. You can stand with one foot in South Carolina and one in North Carolina. It's a beautiful area as is most of the southern coast. Palm trees and palmettos and Spanish moss hanging from the trees it just brings images of another gentler time.
Then there's the hot spot resort areas so you can have a night life too. Though some towns pull in the sidewalks as soon as the sun goes down and some counties are dry.
( No alcohol sold).
The area has also had its scandals and tragedy. Remember missing teen Britnee Drexel from 2009?

Oh well some people say that about New York city too. Or Los Angeles or even parts of London. Welcome to the world of opinions

I am not 100 certain but im sure the UK has some #ty policy like this as well in some places

that disgusts me , when most of our food goes to waste and most of our buildings sit empty after repeated double dip market crashes, so there is plenty to go around to accommodate our poor and homeless

The salvation army solicites for charitable purposes. It's not considered pan handling.
Like fire fighters in some towns asking moterists to fill the boot.

I live on the cusp of two counties. The borders say one thing, the post codes say another. Personally I identify with the post code because it's cooler but deep down I know that I'm in the county.

Also- Clown Burger has these cute signs in various places "You have a half hour to eat, then leave" (paraphrased). I am not going to get in, wait forever for food, and then be forced to dump it down my throat in 30 minutes, because corporate policy dictates it. Especially *that* slop.

In Reading, PA, the McDonalds downtown typically has a number of homeless people nursing a small black coffee for as long as the restaurant will allow them to sit there with it in cold weather.
The places have to put a time limit on the customers, or they would have no place for dine-in customers (that are purchasing a full meal) to sit, because the place would be full of homeless people using it as a heated home.
Something should be done, but is it the responsibility of a private business to provide a comfortable place for a homeless person to spend on third to one half of their day, for the price of a small coffee?

My city has actually put up signs in the shopping district to that affect.

'Please do not encourage pan handling.
The city of Hampton provides services to feed and shelter those in need. '

People don’t call the police for no reason


Especially if it involves an American icon like McDonalds

Woman calls 911 because Mickey Dees ran out of chicken nuggetts.

You can't have an effective police-state if you allow regular people to feed or shelter those who are hungry or homeless.


As a society we have abdicated our responsibility to take care of those less fortunate and we have shifted that burden to the state.

It's a tough issue but I try to help the homeless when I can. Whether it be some change, a smoke or some fast food I couldn't finish. I donate to charities but tbh, when you hand it to people first hand, then at least you know where your money went.

Somewhat true but not all of us. I know that is what the state is trying to enforce but there are so many people who will completely ignore "Da Rules" because they have empathy. Humanity is not lost. Yet.

True, especially when you consider that even with state-run programs in place the most effective programs come from regular people just wanting to help.

I know this is just anecdotal, but it has been my experience that regular people are far more kinder, more generous, more effective than any state-run program.

In my defense, it was only liberal posters defending the actions of the restaurant so I was half right about the scenario.

The hypocrisy stands tall...

I agree about hypocrisy. It gets really glaring when tax free charities can stand outside store front entrances 'legally' panhandling around Christmas.

But if a disheveled looking person tries ringing a bell with a 'collection' basket, they get cited for panhandling.

Who needs the money more , a mega charity or a poor person.




Great point, I think I might bring up this story each time a charitable organization asks me for money outside an establishment and just give my $1 to some random homeless guy now.

I f#cking new it! CALI!!! Liberal heaven with the worst hypocrisy possible!

This has nothing to do with California, or Liberals.
This is a business enforcing their right to refuse service.
Maybe the restaurant had a prior experience with this particular homeless person. Who knows??
Oh nevermind. Just saw it.

The local Homeless have no problems buying McDonalds here in my state, The Great State of Texas that is.

I see some people using his hygiene as an excuse to not allow him to eat there, but the problem is there are plenty of people that have the resources to maintain their hygiene and still don't. Half the people that work at McDonald's could use a shower.

OMG I AM SO GONNA VIRTUAL SIGNAL IN 3...2...1 and..... UGGGGGGGGH..... YEAAAAH. FEELS SO GOOD!

I watched this video elsewhere (Live Leak) from a couple of angles not just the Triggered Do-gooding snowflakes view.

Apparently the homeless guy had a bunch of complaints regarding him hassling customers. The cop made that very clear.
Far as I am aware, it's common practice to bar or eject someone from your business if they're being a problem.
Something most sane and normal people would understand and agree with.

He wasn't arrested, he was just asked to leave. Same as would happen to most people regardless of status.
I mean if someone was being a problem at your business, would you just sit there and let them? I doubt it.

But forget facts. Hell forget even knowing where it actually took place. Forget logic. Just go with them feels right or wrong. Whatever it takes to be righteously (or is that wrongteously?) self righteous at the 'MAN' hey.

Send up the bat signal. It's time to earn SJW points.
Tell you what. Ya'll care so much. Go out right now find a homeless person and bring them homr. Feed them, clothe them, let them stay as long as they need to get back on their feet. Then I may be willing to listen to anything you have to say.
Heck give me your address and I'll send a few homeless folks your way. They'll be there when you get home. I'm sure you won't turn them away or call the cops because your humanity levels are clearly over 9000 and you're all so perfect.

So easy to judge others half assedly and anonymously online aint it. Glass stones and all that.


Terrible cop. How awful she didn't arrest the guy, and calmly and politely did her job. How awful of her.
Terrible manager. How dare he want someone who was harrassing customers ejected from the building. How dare he, who care how badly behvaed Mr Homeless may of been. SOMEONE BOUGHT HIM A MEAL DAMMIT AND THAT EXCUSES ALL!!!!


Sheesh, next you people will be saying Bank Robbers should be left alone if they make a deposit after doing the robbery.... LOL

Sheesh, seriously.

People still actually eat at McDonalds?

Why in God's name would you want to do that?

Their food isn't worth consuming, even if you were paid to eat it.

Leave one of their "sandwiches" set out in the sun for a few weeks, and tell me how many microorganisms or animals touch it. Probably none.

As to the point of the video, they are a private business and can exclude any person for any reason. Perhaps the homeless guy was scaring away customers or maybe he was actually being disruptive. Either way, a business owner can remove you from their property for any reason (or their agent)
