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:Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 10.46.20 AM

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 MinnesotaWhen 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.

    Walk in someone elses shoes??? Everyone is struggling these days even those of us with REGULAR JOBS….And there are plenty of jobs out there without begging people for their HARD EARNED money that we pay taxes on…No one said it was funny I dont see anyone laughing…Many of these pan handlers have brand new vehicles and nice homes I know for a fact because a friend followed and video taped one getting on his brand new Harley after he drove home in a semi new Ford pickup…..and it makes us stuck up because we are pissed off for being used and manipulated to feel bad for these drunk/junkies???…..While MANY of these people rake in $100+ day while we pay taxes on every penny we earn and they expect us to give it to them? No one is saying there aren’t those that are deserving of help but these panhandling drunks are making those that really need it look bad!!! I will donate to valid charities from now on and my LOCAL church. I for one am glad my town made it illegal to pan handle here….Karma wont be looking for me as I pay it forward on a weekly basis to at least one person/family that I KNOW deserves it….Looks like someone struck a nerve.

      You are struggling, so we should feel bad for the junkie panhandler, or God and karma will catch up to us? Yeah, that makes all kinds of sense.

    I just laugh at them!!! One time I grabbed my kids monopoly money and handed to them I told them there reason for panhandling was fake so here’s some fake money to go with your fake reason!! I’m on a fixed income and receive assistance but I’m also a full-time student and work to better my life. These assholes need to be taught a lesson that will make them think twice about taking money from people based on some lame ass excuse!!

    Wow these people are unbelievable.. $100+ a day is the exact reason these bums don’t want to do anything else. While the hard working people of Leominster and Fitchburg paying taxes for them to recieve food stamps and medical benefits on top of all this. Total insanity and disgusting hopefully we can get all these liberals to see what they Are creating and turn them from the dark side .

    I wont give them another dime since running into one at the package store, he was complaining about only making $60 that day…I pretended to care and asked what a normal days take was he said $100 a day or better…WTF???….Then pulls out a BRAND NEW Galaxy S7 and starts texting away…Can someone explain to me how someone is homeless making $700+ a week tax free?….They refuse free food and work every time…The one on Lincoln st in Worcester leaves a pile of donated UNEATEN food there all the time…All they want is the cash!….NEVER AGAIN!

    This guy approached me at burger king at the mall one morning in October saying he needed money to get his 2 kids a boy and girl costumes so they could go trick or treat. Being a local small business owner I offered him a days pay for a days work he said he didn’t have time that day. I was shocked but tgat proved he had no kids and wanted easy free money.

    I had a guy come up to me at a gas station over the winter asking me for money for his truck that ran out of gas and needed money to get home. He said he was a roofing contractor from Framingham who came to Worcester to bid on a job and was running late and forgot his wallet.

    He was waiting for his wife to get out of work and travel here from the Boston area but was hoping some kind person would help him. I didn’t believe him at first b/c of all the assholes who approach people in store parking lots. But he showed me his truck a couple hundred feet from the pumps and tried to start it to no avail. I didn’t have any cash on me so we got a 5 gallon gas can from the station and put about $13 in his truck on my CC and sure enough about a week later he sent me a thank you note w/ $20 in it.

    I felt bad about not believing him at first but douche bags like Terrance McKenna-Rowell are the reason why.

    If someone were to rob a panhandler, wonder how much they’d get? lol Might be a nice payoff.. With a strong arm robbery, you think the police would really set up a huge search? It might just scare this guy off the street

    Anything helps – except an offer from the Mayor that would require actual work. Then, no thanks. Dick.

    Did Mayor Mazzerella offer him a one way bus ticket out of the state? If the guy doesn’t want to go back to the cold of Minnessota I bet the Leominster cops would gladly pool their money for a bus ticket to Florida.

      He was in front of the Post Office for weeks. One day I was coming out of the P.O. and another guy went up to him as if they were buddies. I overhear the 1st guy say “oh so u stand out here?” He says “yea” (as he laughs). The 1st guy says “do people actually give you money?” (laughing also while asking). The guy says “ohhh yeaaa” (like he’s so proud). The 1st guy says “hey bro, well get that money”. Like it was big f*ckin joke! I was so pissed off!!! I am a single mom, previous business owner who has no problem helping anyone who NEEDS it (if I can). I am not able to work at this time due to an injury. I DO NOT get welfare, nor is “DAD” paying any of his child support. I simply try and sell what I have left from my business, online! Trust me when I say I would rather be working!!! Anyway, at that moment I thought “he probably makes more then I do by just standing there as I struggle to keep a roof over our heads”…. I think we should get a big group of people and follow him WHERE EVER he decides to stand (since it’s usually “public property”) ANDDDD we should ALL have signs that say “DO NOT GIVE THIS GUY MONEY”, “HE MAKES MORE THEN ME BY THIS”, HE MAKES MORE THEN THE AVERAGE EMPLOYEE, YOU ARE PAYING HIS TAXES, HE IS A SCAM, ETC…. anything to chase him out of Leominster! Who’s up for it?!? :-/

    I pissed off one on the Belmont St off ramp by stopping about 3 car lengths before the light giving him no one to stare down. If you’re first at a light and see it coming just give yourself and any potential donors some distance. If anyone gives you shit just tell them you’re a BLM member giving yourself 4.5 seconds to reach the intersection after the light changes.

    Believe it or not, Fitchburg and Leominster have started a campaign against bums, errrr beggars, errrr homeless, errrrr panhandlers.

    Because the new Mayor of Fitchburg is sick of the bums polluting downtown, he has slowly started tearing the shanty bum towns down. He and Mazz along with the owner of a bum hostel (dry) have gotten posters put up downtown saying “Don’t feed the bums.” Or “Instead of giving them money, contribute to a charitable organization.”

    As long as the are overgrown railroad bridges and river banks there will be bums in Fitchburg. And when people in Fitchburg get sick of them they go to Leominster, where the more well heeled give them free money.

      Aren’t we building a “bike path” from Leominster to Fitchburg? That should make things easier for the bums.

    I’m not generally a “calm driver” anyways… I’m pretty sure I’d lose my shit if I saw this guy doing that. And if I saw someone giving him money after doing that, they just might get “accidentally rear ended”…

    i actually called the cops on a woman doing this in dudley last year. literally had me stuck at the stoplights near dippin donuts for 4 to 5 cycles before i could get by because she was constantly just pushing the crosswalk button and collecting (or at least trying to) from people on the other side. needless to say, i never saw her again after that. small towns don’t usually stand for that kind of shit, couldn’t imagine living in worcester, leominster, etc these days.
