Did anyone notice all of the panhandlers in downtown Elmhurst on Boo-tiful Saturday? What's going on Elmhurst police? I thought panhandling was illegal. I don't mind helping out someone in need, but I don't need to be harrassed and threatened in front of my children. I thought Boo-tiful Saturday was a way for local merchants to attrack business to our town, yet no one will want to come here if they are being approached by beggers.

i agree the amount of pan handlers and beggars are getting to be awful, i see them everywhere. dupage county jail must be a full house.. usually the pan handlers are drug addicts too, i never give them money or encourage the behavior there are many means of getting help if you are homeless
