He probably needed a pair of new shoes regardless.
He doesn't appear to be 'living it up' even with benefits.
I don't think the cop made an error in judgement.
I know of a 70 year old veteran who also gets benefits.
He looks and smells like he is homeless. He also is very cantankerous.
He had a nasty fall and someone asked me to go an pick him up from the hospital.
You'd swear he lived on the streets too, but he doesn't.
Like the gentleman in the article, he appears to have mental issues.
I do buy him things if he asks (juices newspapers, ginger ale) and I check on him during storms, but he always pays me back from the money he keeps in
