  • maybe the public will get lucky and he'll start walking around town in a 'security' t shirt.

    if so vpd, dps, tabc, texas rangers, cia, fbi, nato, delta 6, barney fife will come down on him like a ton of bricks !

  • If this individual can drive a car then he doesn't have to bother people going about their business. He needs to get a job where he can talk with customers - maybe at the end of the day, he'll know what it's like to have worked all day, go home "tired", and give others the break they deserve from him.

  • Lock him up, and the sooner the better. Sounds as though he belongs in a loony bin and not roaming the streets of Victoria.

    Wasn't there an ordinance or something passed a short time ago for "street vendors" to obtain a permit to do business in parking lots?

    Seemed like it stemmed from all the people selling cars and animals in front of Lowes/Big Lots.

  • I deal with these kind of people all the time at my store parking lot. Some try to sell cologne, cd's,dvd's(bootlegged new releases) that are a federal offence to copy and sell.
    All of these thugs are aggressive.
    Seems there could be a three department raid on these beggars and non rent paying vendors. That would be actually serving the public and not the way thay go into a club after along investigation about lettering on a t-shirt. Wait, if these guys are agressive, I am shure the VPD really don't want to confront them.
    Hard working, peace keeping, 18 year olds are much easier to harrrass.

  • Pepper is not a nice guy. He's gonna get bloodied up some day when he harass the wrong person.

  • Kind of sounds like a new version of Pepper

  • I was walking across Victoria Square parking lot in 98 degree heat. This guy pulls up (in a vehicle newer than mine), rolls down his window, turns down his radio and sits inside in the air conditioning while I am standing in the heat listening to his sad story. He was definitely not happy when I sent him on his way.

    The article is right and people should be careful. The guy is definitely 'off center'.

    Maybe we should provide 'drive-up-windows' for panhandlers?
