And that, my friend, is why he is homeless.... the guy is a halfwit.

Why would a hiker take $3K with him hiking?... and if he did, how could you possibly forget it? Maybe it was dirty money.

That yahoo clip is shitty at best. Here's a better one from Fox Phoenix.

I think the guy will fair better for having turned the money in. He's been offered free dental care, thanksgiving dinner, unknown amounts of money and jobs. If it was an average person who had turned it in, this wouldn't be a news story. It's just the fact that the guy is homeless that makes this interesting.

Watch the video in the link I posted. The guy is no drug dealer.

You probably have a job and a home. I think most people who have those two things would do the same.

You may be right about the halfwit part but dude wasn't going hiking. Unless you call riding the light rail in downtown Phoenix hiking.

Again the yahoo clip is fucking dumb but I don't remember it saying anything about that. Aside from that I could count $3000 in 5's and 10's in about 2 minutes.

There are a lot of non homeless people that wouldn't have given that back. Good for that guy because like it or not Karma's a bitch.

Absolutely!! Some people understand honesty and integrity, and some do not.

Huh, that guy looked like most the drug dealers I have know, 5's and 10's is odd for a white boy though, usually they wont sell less than a 20 sack around here. Or everyone pays him in fives and tens

OK maybe he's a dealer but both videos say he's a college student. Neither of them say any fucking thing about fives or tens though.

Who gives two shits if he's a drug dealer or not? It's not about that guy, it's about the homeless man. He's a good, honest man. And he'll be rewarded for his honesty. I'm a firm believe in what goes around comes around. And whoever said they'd take the money and run, you're an idiot.

I made another thread for that conversation and so far the idiots are winning.

You also don't know the circumstances of how he found it. Maybe other people saw it too and pressured him to do it.
