The 2 meter metal pole

I have been onto Lidl before stating that some aggressive begging goes on within the realms of their local Hackney store. They duly addressed the issues and now the aggressive begging has ceased, at least when I shop there.

Yesterday I cam across a new menace. A large man with a huge metal pole (at least 2 meters long) approached shoppers who came out of the Lidl store and swore loudly at a couple of Asian women with prams.

Quite frightening. I can’t publish the picture that I took of that man, but I passed it onto police. So, why does a man need a large metal pole to beg? Is that metal pole a potential weapon? It certainly didn’t need to be used as walking stick as the man looked quite athletic and well groomed.

I just hope that the police monitor Well Street and look out for menacing people. The man hid at a bus stop opposite Lidl when he came back from one of his begging sprees.
