Begging Robots

I don't know what to make of this. Once, again, I point to something that Alec Couros has written. This time it's about beggar robots. What do you do if you're homeless and totally broke, and the city in which you live bans begging? Well, apparently, one thing you can do is to build a beggar robot.

What does it say about humans if they'll give money to a robot but NOT to a human beggar? I wonder if this is a good writing prompt for kids. This just.. REALLY bothers me.

I'm going to embed the video, but I encourage you to visit Alec's blog and subscribe. I've learned TONS from him.
