Texas man pretends to be homeless and in wheelchair makes $1000 a week
A Texas man has been fooling the public into thinking he is homeless and according to police the man is pocketing $1000 a week!
WGXA-TV reports that the man named "RJ" told Abilene Police Chief Stan Stanridge officers of the Abilene Police Department and members of its Homeless Outreach team that he takes home $1000 week.
It was also revealed that he isn't homeless or handicap and gets dropped off at the expressway intersection.
There has been no mention of any charges being filed and according to Chief Stan Stanridge's facebook page he only brought this to the public's attention to bring awareness to homelessness saying:
"Now, imagine if those dollars were given to nonprofits to help get our homeless neighbors off the streets and into thriving!
If you feel led to give charity, please do. It is a very personal decision. However, moving from charity to philanthropy will go a long way to ending homelessness for all of our neighbors."
