Decatur Beggar Spotted In Metroplex

The guy that can often be seen off of FM 51 in Decatur has been spotted off of Hulen in Fort Worth (thanks to a camera carrying faithful reader.) He was last seen in Haltom City.

If someone were to stop and offer that man a job, he'd start running backwards faster than Usain Bolt

Looks like he already has a job?

I always wondered what his mental issues were. Maybe no one will hire him.

He was standing out in front of the donut shop on FM51 as I was driving home a few minutes ago.

You know I actually tried to help this man about a year ago... he was in front of the General Dollar store in Decatur. Since I didn't have a job to offer him, I went and bought him a meal at Whataburger and took it to him.. He REFUSED the meal. Since he refused the meal I did not offer him any cash...

He is from Newark. He does not want a job he wants money. As someone said in earlier comments he has a job. What a jerk.

Could be a 'sign' of things to come. Pretty soon.

We've got a new guy in Decatur. He stands by the exit from Wal Mart with a sign that reads "stranded need gas". Now being stranded would be a terrible thing but I've seen him several times, once with a lady freind.

He has his own business. Just like Joe the Plumber wants his own business, but just won't do it because he will have to pay more taxes to be rich. Joe could not do it under Bush, but this guy was able to. And must be very successful as well. He is still at it!

I find it hard to feel sorry for someone who is dressed up nicer than most other folk in this fair town.

He should be arrested. I hate people who "play" on other's sympathy! Isn't there some city ordinance against panhandling in Decatur? Why can't the law arrest this man? I know people who have OFFERED him little jobs and he has turned them down flat. So, isn't 'that fraud....panhandling for a job and then refusing them when they are offered? The guy ticks me off. I used to feel sorry for him, but now, he just really irks me!

I have seen the begger from Newark and I do not think this is the same person. But they do look alot alike. I will see if I can get a picture of him and settle this question.

He hangs out at the Rhome Dairy Queen.

Have you not seen the people who he gets put out there by, they are a younger couple .. man is in the mid=forties, female looks to be in late thirties maybe 40 ish not sure, on more than one occasion I have seen him get out of a older model car 90's probablly . Gosh, he may not want to do this and they have been making him, could be a true elder being abused. please someone needs to find out the true motives of this poor ole guy, so let's not be so quick to judge, next time don't just take his pix stop and ask him to show you his id then find out .
