Re: Vaud decided begging is a crime, Supreme Court agrees, confirms total ban on begg

Enough of this tom foolery. They banned it in Geneva and they have now banned it in Lausanne as well they should.



It was the same, exact 20 people for the last 10 years who had staked out their spots and it was their job. Literally. They got dropped off in the morning and they were picked up at night. Young boy runners would go around the city center and empty their takings periodically.


Professional begging is a racket and thank God it has been banned in Lausanne. It's embarrassing.


Now if they would only do something about the graffiti which is my other pet peeve.

What article of the UN states that begging is a human right?

Actually, I rather like grafitti.

Hate rap, though, unless it's .

Are you aware that beggars are often just the front-end of big money making organizations? It's good for everyone if it is not allowed.
Like banking then. Has Vaud outlawed bankers ? No, because they wear suits so that’s acceptable criminality.
