HTV Classic/2018 After the sheriff posted photos on Facebook and asked citizens to stop giving to panhandlers, hundreds of people joined the discussion. Kaylinn Clotfelter and Trenton Wolfe talked to the man who found out later he was the center of the social media storm.
Back Story: The panhandler in question was found on the north side of the city, in the Hillcrest district. Several HHS students had seen him on the median.
Focus Statement: “Sheriff’s comments on Facebook single out panhandler”
Trivia: The panhandler was sitting at one of the city’s busier intersections, where there was constant noise.
