I would prefer CRCs for every expat in Cambodia.

And mandatory academic record checks for every teacher.

I have a funny feeling around 50% (I'm being generous here) would have to leave stat.

The one, homeless benign guy is not the problem.

Bigger fish.

A month ago he posted on Facebook that he was living a dream.

He also posted that even if you're super rich, you should pretend to be a penniless junkie begging on the streets, and see how people respond.

So maybe he's actually super rich.

See, he's just pretending.

Poor Steve. I've known him for years and he's a good guy. Getting deported back home is probably a good move for anyone who ends up begging on the streets of Phnom Penh. I wish him the best.

Round them all up! As if there's not enough beggars in Cambodia without foreigners doing it too!

Yes it certainly seemed it was just a matter of time these last months. Hitting rock bottom is probably the best that could happen for him.

Does anybody know how this works? I didn't give him money when he started begging but I would support him getting back home. Will he be put on a flight home? At who's expense?
