mmmm…why is this man lying on the middle of the road?
Oh, it’s one of the many beggars around KL night markets.
Rumours had it that beggars around Kuala Lumpur are maintained by syndicates. They provide beggers with the necessary transport to beg and then collect a fee/commission/etc from them.
Beggars use many tactics to gain more sympathies from people. Some bring small children with them, some had open wounds dispayed and some write their sob stories on huge piece of paper for people to read.
Running a syndicate like this is no doubt unethnical. However, wouldn’t it be justified that beggars DO need these services to ease their life? Oh well.
