so he was arrested for panhandling, offering to work for the money but the scammers who are panhandling and using children as bait, aren't harassed, fined or removed.

You took the words right out of my mouth.... Im sure the licensing thing had something to do with it, but how come panhandlers using children as bait cannot be arrested, or at least have the children removed to child protection services? Whats happening is future generations of panhandlers are being trained.....and taught its more profitable to panhandle than actually hold a job....
