Saw this on the Leominsterites Unite Facebook page today:
This is why I can’t stand most panhandlers. They’re mostly huge dickheads. If you’re gonna stand there, then stand there. But pushing the walk button in order to get more potential clients is such a dick move. You’re not different than the black lives matter terrorists blockading highways if you do that.
There’s panhandlers everywhere nowadays, but apparently this guy is like the Bigfoot of panhandling. His name is Terrance McKenna-Rowell, and he’s banned from pretty much every parking lot in Leominster. A quick Google search shows you that he’s a frequent flyer with the LPD:
Not even kidding, read about it here:
Four new trespassing orders were recently filed against a local homeless man who has been panhandling recently outside Leominster businesses. Terence McKenna-Rowell, 33, has been barred from the properties of Tedeschi Food Shops on Central Street, The Claw Shop, The Luxury Box and Johnny Appleseed Plaza. “He approaches you very politely, saying something like, ‘Can you help out a hungry family?,'” said acting police Capt. Michael Ciccolini, who urged that people notify the police if they encounter McKenna-Rowell. “He’ll walk up to people sitting in their cars and scare them.”
McKenna-Rowell had already been banned from The Mall at Whitney Field and surrounding Gagné properties, including Wyman’s Liquor Mart, Rye & Thyme, Columbia Tavern, Papa Gino’s on Commercial Road, Market Basket on Sack Boulevard, WaterTower Plaza, Applebee’s on North Main Street, and the CVS Pharmacies located on Nelson and Central Streets.
There are panhandlers, and then there are panhandling legends. This man is a panhandling legend. He’s like some sort of mythological creature. Evidently he drifted here from Minnesota. When he eventually jumps on a train and disappears forever the rest of the bums will tell stories about him while munching on possum meat under the railroad tracks. Do you understand how hard it is to get banned from a Tedeschis? Tedeschis only exist so that the riff-raff can stand outside all day doing nothing. Pretty sure no Tedeschis in the history of mankind has ever banned anyone. Terence McKenna-Rowell is a hyphenated dooshnozzle of epic proportions.
I mean, is there anywhere in Leominster this man can go? He’s banned from the mall. Ya got that? The whole mall, including the parking lot AND all surrounding Gagne properties. He can’t go to pretty much any chain restaurant or CVS, so where can this guy even go without being illegal? Evidently Mayor Dean Mazzerella has offered to help him out and he’s flat out refused. Bothering people for change is more profitable.
Anyway, glad to see that the Leominster Police actually take panhandling seriously. I understand that the Supreme Court says that it’s free speech, but there are ways around it. First of all, they’re making money and not paying taxes. I say audit every single one of the mofos. Or can’t we enforce loitering ordinances? Or have the highway department dump roadkill next to them while they’re standing around?
Here’s my idea. It’s a free market right? I will give money to a panhandler that is providing a service. For instance, in big cities people play the violin and stuff like that in the Subway. Or they play the drums with pots and pans. Give me something. My proposal is to stand next to these idiots on the major street corners and do something that requires talent. Maybe a magic show or juggling. Who you gonna give money to? The guy who’s putting an effort in or the guy standing there doing nothing? Boom. Panhandling problem solved.
The biggest problem is that morons keep giving them money for nothing. Gotta stop doing that, but how do we stop morons? Simple – shame them. If you see someone giving money to one of these guys looking for their next fix, send us a picture of the transaction and we’ll put them on blast. Public shaming fixes everything. So yea, if ever see this hyphenated panhandler in Leominster, send it to us and we’ll toss it up on the Facebook machine.
