Beggars


Summer in Copenhagen brings out a host of beggars, domestic and foreign alike, with the Romanians being the biggest group at the moment. This one is in Copenhagen all year round, but don't be fooled by his crutches; when the police arrives he gets a warning by his lookouts and the paper cup and the crutches disappear. These beggars are highly organized with minders and bosses just around the corner, and they apparently earn quite a bit by counting on the bleeding hearts of people passing by.
