There is an excellent video crafted by the Sacramento Bee on the website noted below. It shows the problem posed by panhandling in a fair and honest way.
U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. issued a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the ordinance, which was adopted unanimously by the City Council last November.
“As of now, it is in place,” England said, adding that if attorneys for the city want to return with new evidence of why the injunction should be lifted he will order a new hearing.
Civil liberties groups and homeless advocates filed suit against the city in April, challenging the ordinance on behalf of James Lee “Faygo” Clark, a well-known homeless activist who said the ordinance unfairly kept him from soliciting for donations outside the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op at 28th and R streets and other locations.
