My friend was panhandling on Rt. 1 and a cop told him he did not want to see him in the area again. What is the law in Fairfax Co. on panhandling?

Your friend is wrong. He needs to contact Sharon Bulova. The county has all kinds of goodies for free just waiting for him. In case she cannot get him pointed in the right direction then contact Honest Gerry Connolly.

Whoever panhandles in this day and age is a total fool.

Curiously, Arlington County is full of panhandlers. I checked their ordinances and I see that they require permits to panhandle.

There is one fellow who carries a sign that says "always faithful". What I see is that he is faithful to his corner at Washington blvd and Lee Highway.

Why don't they haul these scumbags away?

Gerry Connolly just sent a flyer paid for by our tax dollars for his campaign. I consider that to be panhandling.

Maybe some undocumented workers or folks who think its okay to speak about violence against Americans in their textbooks. Gotta love the Saudi Academy, and his taking campaign dollar after dollar from them.

Does the Emir of Saudi Arabia kiss the pinkie ring of Gerry? I'm curious.

Why anyone would choose to work anymore is beyond me. Obama just signed off an executive order gutting the welfare to work program. You no longer have to work, seek work or train for work. Thats all over now. You can remain on welfare your entire life if you see fit.

It is illegal. I found out a few weeks ago. I had my kids's basketball team at an intersection on various corners with signs that said help us get to nationals. We were not harassing people just had a bucket and sign. An hour into our fundraising efforts a cop came by and said 3 different people had reported us. WTF? He said I feel bad because I have been watching you guys from the school and I can see you are not obstructing taffic and you aren't shouting but in FFX you have to have a permit to conduct any business near a roadway. Who knew panhandling was a business. He suggested we hold up a sign that said turn into the school to give us money. This would be ok. How many people do you know that will turn in based on a sign? All these people bitch and moan about how kids are menaces to society anymore and when they are raising money for something good that they are doing that keeps them out of trouble they're reported to the police. Crazy. So we came down to the City of Alexandria and cops drove by and donated to their team. LMAO!!! I am sure it is frowned upon there too but since they weren't hurting anybody nobody cared.

In some states they specifically allow panhandling and even designate areas as "panhandles". Florida has a panhandle area, and so does Oklahoma. Maryland also has a panhandle area. Idaho and Texas also have areas for panhandling.

So the fireman trying to fill the boot is illegal? I call BS. I believe that you are allowed to stand on public areas, unless you obstruct traffic or are a menance. In which case, the cops can move you away. If you've gotten three (3) complaints via 911, the kids might have been more aggressive than you know.

Well...YES it is illegal for the fire department to be doing this. And they know it. The police look the other way when the fire department does it.

Here's the answer...

Begging Laws in Virginia

Panhandling laws in Virginia vary from city to city and county to county. In any incorporated city, you must check with local authorities to figure out the law for the area. They will be able to tell you if a permit is required to panhandle or if there are any begging restrictions.

IT IS NOT ILLEGAL TO PANHANDLE IN FAIRFAX COUNTY OR ANYWHERE ELSE. HOW CAN IT BE?! YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT, BUT IT IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH, EXPRESSION, ETC. PANHANDLING IS PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT!!! MANY JUDGES CITY STATE AND FEDERAL HAVE DECLARED TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT BANNING PANHANDLING ARE ILLEGAL LAWS. JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS A LAW DOESNT MAKE IT LEGAL!!! AND FURTHERMORE THERE IS NOT A PANHANDLING BAN IN FAIRFAX COUNTY!!! NEITHER THE STATE OF VIRGINA NOR FAIRFAX COUNTY HAVE A PANHANDLING BAN BECAUSE THEY WOULD NEVER GET THESE LAWS PASSED!!!! SO THEY ENFORCE IT LIKE IT IS A LAW, WHEN IT ISNT!!! (and you people who like to say "yes it is, look..." and then post a link to the ENTIRE CONTENTS OF VIRGINIA LAW, STOP!!! If you think it is a law, I would be very happy to see it in the form of the code, and the actual law. Fairfax county has ordinances on Peddling, Canvassing, and Soliciting, but that is NOT what panhanding IS. Peddling, Canvassing, and Soliciting are various ways of SOLICITING. The LEGAL definition of all three is "ATTEMPTING TO EXCHANGED GOOD (in the form of product or physical work) for MONEY. You see that? You have to OFFER something. SOLICITING DONATIONS on the other hand is just that. SOLICITING DONATIONS. And fairfax county has a ordinence on THAT but it boils down to YOU DO NOT NEED A LICENSE TO SOLICIT DONATIONS AS LONG AS ALL THE PROCEEDS (up to 5000 dollars per day) go to the named benificiary. PERIOD. Im sorry. But that is the law.

ATTENTION YOU FACIST, COMMIE, NAZIS!!!! PANHANDLING IS NOT ILLEGAL. IT IS PROTECTED BY FREEDOM OF SPEECH (in thousands of court cases) AND PROTECTED BY THREE OTHER CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS.(unlawful search and seizure, etc) SOME FAIRFAX OFFICERS ATTEMPT TO THREATEN OR MAKE UP LAWS, BUT THERE ARENT. NOT ONE OF YOU CANT CITE THE ORDINANCE BY ITS NUMBER....BECAUSE IT DOESNT EXIS!!!! OF COURSE THEY DONT, IF THEY DID, THEY WOULD BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! I AM SADDENED THAT I AM ONE OF VERY FEW PEOPLE ON HERE WHO CARE MORE ABOUT LIBERTY, AND OUR FREEDOMS REMAINING INTACT, AND BEING A TRUE PATRIOT, OVER JUDGING SOME POOR GUY AND SAYING TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT THESE PEOPLE. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! YOUR ARE JUST MAD BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT TAKES 1/4 of your CHECK!? GO EFFING EFF yourself. MAYBE WE SHOULD BUILD LABOR CAMPS FOR THEM AND PUT THEM TO WORK LIKE GOOD CITIZENS. AND IF THEY ARE DISABLED MENTALLY OR PHYSICALLY, WELL WE'LL JUST EXECUTE THEM. WE DONT NEED MORE MOUTHs TO FEED!!! SORRY BUT YOU WANT ME TO PAY TAXES, FINE. I PAY TAXES SO THAT WE CAN ALL LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE PEOPLE ARE FREE TO SIT ON THE CORNER WITH A SIGN THAT SAYS HOMELESS. I DONT SEE ANYONE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE GUY WITHE SIGN THAT SAYS "PRAY TO END ABORTION" WITH A PICTURE OF AN ABORTED FETUS IN THE 2nd trimester. OR HOW ABOUT THE "GOD HATES GAYS" ASSHOLE WHO LITERALLY PROTEST AT SOLDIERS FUNERALS. YOURE OKAY WITH THAT?! YOU ALL ARE SOME ANTI-AMERICAN TRUE SOCIOPATHS. DO YOU KNOW THAT?!

"But its not just speech...he's making money from it..."

OH MY GOD!!! HE IS AMKING MONEY DOING SOMETHING....IN AMERICA!?! THE CAPITAL OF CAPITALISM!?!?

"He's a criminal...He's not paying taxes...."

Oh yeah?! guess who else was a beggar and didn't pay taxes...? JESUS FRIGGIN CHRIST!!! AND HIS APOSTLES!!! MY STARS IT WAS A CONSPIRACY. HE COULD HAVE BEEN TRIED FOR BEING A CONFEDERATE....Oh...wait...THEY DID. REMEMBER YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR THE BEGGAR WHO DIDNT PAY TAXES. FOR THOSE OF YOU UNEDUCATED DOORKNOBS OUT THERE THAT DIDNT HAPPEN TO STUDY THE HISTORY OF THE TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE, "RENDER ONTO CEASAR WHAT IS CAESAR'S, AND RENDER ON TO GOD WHAT IS GODS" DOES NOT mean you SHOULD pay taxes. DUH!! HELLO!!! He is literally saying "Caesar can keep his, I will keep mine" ....AND ST FRANCIS!!! AND ABOUT A THOUSAND OTHER REVERED SAINTS!!!! GO SCREW YOURSELF!!!!

WHEN POLICE OFFICERS THREATEN TO ARREST YOU OR TRY TO FORCE YOU TO STOP USING YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT, THEY ARE COMMITTING A FEDERAL CRIME!!! DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW

Summary:

Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
For the purpose of Section 242, acts under "color of law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official's lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.

TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnaping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

SO YOUR ALL WRONG EXCEPT THE FIRST GUY. NO, PANHANDLING IS AND WILL ALWAY BE LEGAL, AND IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE IT ISNT AND THEY HAVE PASSED ANTI PANHANDLING LAWS, THEY ARE GUILTY OF TREASON.

Another problem you run in to is that while you may want to make it illegal in your county, most people panhandle on state roads due to the volume of traffic, so any county ordinance for these individuals would be moot. I don't live in Fairfax but I live and work in a nearby jurisdiction. The county I live in looked in to banning panhandling not too long ago. We decided not to go with a permit system because it is kind of stupid. We went with educating the people who think that giving $1 or $5 is really going to make a difference in a panhandler's life. Giving to a panhandler is more for the giver than the recipient, a magnanimous moment that leads to more problems than it fixes.

I had to do outreach to the homeless and panhandlers for my job. Panhandlers can easily make anywhere from $500 to $800 a day

That amount is a bald faced lye! And only if any one gives a SUBSTANCE ABUSER monetary help does it not do any real good to give money.
Some, but rarely, are truly in need of the gift of cash. And if any given person is simply LEGALLY asking for help and nothing more, such as directly asking for money, it is legal and can not be interpreted ad panhandling. And if any given person offers money as help as an un-cohersed gift, the given one requesting the help can LEGALLY accept it as a gift. And the one asking for help can not be weasling out a cry baby story in between time making any potential references of money, either. That can LEGALLY be interpreted as panhandling as well.
Then, of course, you have 'corporate townships' inside county's like FX, VA. that 'rule the roost' and sometimes permit 'non-aggressive' panhandling -
Because, this type of panhandling, is, of course, not suggestive of a substance abuser. Substance abusers always get aggressive in their requests/demands for $CASH$. IMPATIENT for their next FIX of the alcohol or drugs they are addicted to.
And the ones making SUPPOSEDLY making more than one or two hundred a day - depending on how long they spend daily panhandling - are usually the substance abusing, highly aggressive ones that end up getting themselves in trouble with 'The Law'. Get mixed up busted more often than not for one thing or the other. They end up having to pay their way to stay out of jail with the money they do hustle up. If not, they stay in jail. And if they do not pay the court fees and/or fines? Well, then they usually end up back in jail. They lose their drivers license. And can not get another one until the money I'd paid to the local justice system.
Trick is, is to keep it honest. Then the one or two hundred you might get asking for help actually helps. It take about four to six hours of doing it honest. And the U.S. Supreme Court rulings on such a matter maintains your right to sply ask for help. Local 'ordnances' (and some asshole minded cops) just simply love to over ride the higher authority court. In which, in reality, overrides their simple minded asses!
Take this lesson from 'the horses mouth' (me) that has 'been there, done that'.
Then, you also have 'asshole citizens' that see you standing around with a simple 'Help' sign, call the cops on you, bald faced lying to them trying to accuse you falsly of panhandling directly. If you are 'straight', honest about it when they show up, 100% of the time with the bald faced false accuser never to be their like the puss they are, the cops will leave you alone. If you give them any slack (shit) that slightly inducates you are substance abusing and the like, you are ran off out of there and have to start all over again at a different locale. So, if you are considering such an endeavor, you need to 'Get Smart' and simply stay of the substance abuse wagon. Most cops no how to 'push the right buttons' in/with a brief interrogation like discussion with any given street bum. Just don't be one if you plan on doing it. Even so, on occasion, you will run across that one or to rare, purely asshole cop that will give you a false 'jay walking/impeding traffuc' bullshit ticket. You just pay the fine ($10 plus court cost) and move on. A small price to ocassionally pay to receive a few hundred bucks a week in gift s/gift money. And, again, you must pay the tickets issued off, or your looking a a hole new bag of worms such as mentioned, above.

Let me just say this sometimes depending on your situation finding jobs is hard second of all let me say this from experience those of you who work a 9-5 make less money than the panhandlers do period there are days you walk away with a thousand dollars its not as easy as it looks either people look at you differently when in all reality they have no idea who you are where you came from or your goals as to where your headed why doesn't everyone stop judging everyone else for what they do and if you have a problem with it don't stop don't give them money but just remember you never know when one of those people are merely an angel in disguise

500$ to 800$ dollars a day!!! Are you fucking serious?!?! Stop spreading lies! I live in Fairfax county, and I used to be homeless, I'm disabled and sometimes have to panhandle to make ends meet. I'm lucky if I even make 50$. If panhandling was that lucrative people would start quitting their jobs. Use common sense, nobody makes that kind of money begging! If they did a lot of their problems would be solved!

I will never put myself in a drug addict's shoes, ever; nor was I born with a silver spoon up my ass as you put it. They are homeless because they spend their money on drugs or alcohol. I have absolutely ZERO sympathy for them. Their desperate because of the choices they made in life...why should I need humility for that?

The guys who regularly panhandle at the stringfellow rd/fair lakes blvd area are complete scammers. That middle aged white male who rides the moped is nasty too. He regularly gives police a hard time when asked to leave. The obese guy isn't much nicer either...
I talked to a Fairfax County cop about this issue and he was frustrated because the county is unclear about the issue. A lot of times the cops have to enforce Jaywalking laws in order to do something about them.
Panhandling is legal in Arlington county.
Panhandling is illegal in PG County and Loudoun county.

Loudoun used to have a nigger brigade that would descend on intersections and just pound the stopped motorists incessantly for cash. They were quite aggressive. They had day-glo vests with "church" written on the front and back. Church my ass. Those niggas were just just enriching themselves.

That was the last straw for Loudoun. I'm sure those jigs are in Fairfax now.

What gets me (besides the panhandling) is that if I work anywhere within the VDOT right of way I am required to put out signs, wear a bright colored vest, hard hat, steel toe boots. Oh, and have a permit to work in the right of way. But these losers get to hang around in the right of way holding signs, approach vehicles, yell at people, etc. I've yet to see one of them wearing an orange vest or put out signs on both approaches that say, "Panhandler Ahead". Seems to me the fact that they are in the VDOT right of way without a permit or safety gear would be enough to induce the police to get rid of them.

Why should I have to pay for your kid to do something? If your kid wants to travel to play sports, why shouldn't your kid pay for the plane ticket? Or why shouldn't you pay for your kid's plane ticket.

Or maybe your kid could get a job mowing lawns and make some money to pay for his ticket?

Panhandling should be illegal everywhere!!! They harass you and they are bunch of losers. Why can't they work to earn money? They are looking for an easy way to make money. They look disgusting on purpose so that people will think that they are truly poor people who need help. I think they are all scammers, drug addicts, and full of shit! I was approached by this overweight bitch one day at Walmart parking lot in Chantilly and she cussed at me because I didn't give her any money! What a rude bitch! I could've punched her out right then. I was so dumb-founded and pissed!

I've noticed that there are lot of panhandlers at that location. I realty wish they could be stopped harassing people!!!

In Fairfax County you can call the police when you see them and the Police will come out and write them up/chase them away.

The overweight white guy at Stringfellow and Fair Lakes Blvd, I've seen him walk into the Walmart parking lot and get into his SUV and drive home after he's done.

The skanky white lady who does it in Chantilly, I saw her walk thru the mall parking lot, past the KFC and the Noodles and Co. and get into her car and drive away.

All of these people live in other counties, and drive up here to panhandle because people up here have money and are dumb enough to hand it over.

The gypsies that do it with 'their family' in Fair Lakes Shopping Center are back now too.

Do everyone a favor and call the cops every time you see these scammers.

Then give your extra cash to a local homeless shelter if you want to feel like you are doing something.

Fuck all those who are on streets begging for other peoples' hard-earned money!!! I will never give you a dime! I work my ass off for every cent that I make. You all should be ashamed of yourselves! Aren't you guys embarrassed to be out in streets where everyone could see what you are doing? What the hell is wrong with you all? Holding signs that say that you are a veteran or other shit so people might actually feel sorry for you and hand you some money! I've seen too many of you but I have never given you any money and I will never give you any money! Please do yourselves a huge favor and do something worth for your life other than holding s stupid signs and looking for an easy cash!

I totally 100% agree that panhandling should be illegal and those who get caught doing it, should be fined and if they continue to do so, should be sent away to Iraq or any middle eastern countries!!!!
