Another Good Reason To Ignore The Pleas Of Beggars... that no good deed goes unpunished. That axiom was all too true in the case of a woman, a passenger in a car in Baltimore, who decided to give some money to another woman who apparently was begging. She rolled down her window to give the other woman some money and a man approached the car and tried to steal her purse. In he altercation, the man reportedly stabbed her in the chest killing her. More at the source.

Predators are opportunistic folks and if you give them the opportunity, they will strike. My advice, when you find yourself in a similar situation, ignore the beggars pleas for cash and get away from them as quickly as possible while remaining aware of them and others around you. Of course, another thing comes to mind - be prepared to defend yourselves too.

All the best,
