Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Friday, August 22, 2003

In other UK news, the country has had a law against begging for years, but it does not carry a prison sentence. Now, a court has issued an injunction against a habitual beggar, one Mr. Leonard Hockey, who has been arrested 97(!) times for vagrancy. If he is caught again within 2 years, he will be given a jail sentence, not for vagrancy, but for contempt of court.

Hmmm. If these vagrants are really drug addicts as the government alleges, I don't think a threat of contempt is going to help restrict their propensity for begging.

Not to be outdone, Atlanta is also considering banning begging.
