Begging

Synonyms:
Panhandling
Description:
Gaining all or part of one's living by asking for money or food, whether from door to door or in public places.
Implementation:
Begging occurs frequently, particularly in developing countries, where unemployment and shortage of food are problems. However, it is increasingly practised in major cities of the industrialized countries. Attempts to increase income may be made by deforming or mutilating the body. This may be done deliberately by the beggar or may be done by an adult, possibly the parent, dependent on the begging of children. In 1990 federal court decided for the first time that panhandling is a free-speech right protected by the First Amendment.
