panhandlerREGINA, Saskatchewan – A Canadian man was ticketed for removing his seatbelt in traffic while attempting to give money to an undercover cop he mistook for a panhandler.

Dane Rusk was fined $175 for unbuckling his seatbelt when he attempted to give $3 in change to a man that appeared to be a panhandler while leaving a mall in Regina.

“As I came up to the stop sign, I stopped and looked and I saw this homeless guy holding a sign. I instantly felt sorry for him,” Rusk told CTV News.

“I reached out – I had to undo my seatbelt, hang over and drop the change on the curb.”  Source

    not surprising, cops don’t have much in the way of common sense anymore. Least he didn’t shoot the guy. I’m pretty sure he will win in court as he was wearing his seat belt but its the hard on cops get for giving tickets without looking at the bigger picture.

    If not law enforcement, who will you call when TSHTF?
