Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 19, 2014

A 19-year-old wheelchair-bound man in New York City had a wallet containing nearly $5,000 stolen from him at Port Authority by a panhandler. After he traveled to a Manhattan police precinct to identify the thief in a lineup, Fredrick Brennan, 19, was left to get home on his own and had to call 911 at a bus stop, stranded and suffering from hypothermia. Police had not helped Brennan get home, despite the city being hit by a strong winter storm. A bus in Brooklyn several stops from his residence never showed up. "We should have done a better job of getting him to his destination," Deputy Chief Kim Royster said.

I hate to say this, Rcade, but anyone who gives money to someone at Port Authority is asking to get robbed.
Trust me on that one since you are not from these parts.

Handicapped and traveling on his own with 5000 in cash? I mean banks may be evil, but they serve their purposes.

There is an obvious lack of common sense and personal responsibility in this story.
