Career panhandlers are becoming somewhat of a trend in the popular shopping areas around town, and even our readers are taking notice. These pictures were submitted by a Turlock resident after they noticed the team of beggars rendezvousing at this truck in the Target parking lot. Sharing cigarettes, their next location to post up, and a ride home were all observed being discussed before the each team member ventured to their corner near each exit.
As you can see, while these 'hard workers' will gladly take any of your spare change, they don't enjoy taking pictures. Unfortunately our friend in the main picture displayed a gesture on the not so friendly side, so the TurlockCityNews.com graphic team helped us out in making it a little more G rated.
The City of Turlock is in the process of making it illegal to panhandle while launching educational and marketing campaigns, known as “Make Your Change Count” and “No Means No.”
