Opinion: panhandlers are pressing crosswalk button to hold up traffic

We’ve heard from several fans that panhandlers click the crosswalk button to hold up traffic. Have you seen that? From a reader:

“Just throwing this out there, but there has been an older pan-handler at the corner of shading and Hathaway that will stand there and press the crosswalk button. Not sure if it’s to just get more visual, out of spite, or whatever. But it kinda sucks. It’s as though he’s being pushy and not giving people the choice to give, but creating more of an opportunity for them to give.”
