This Ohio neighborhood wants to pay homeless people to pick up trash

  This Ohio neighborhood wants to pay homeless people to pick up trash A program to pay homeless people to pick up trash in an Ohio neighborhood could begin soon. The Columbus Dispatch reports that organizers are seeking $40,000 from the city of Columbus to launch a yearlong pilot program in the city's Franklinton neighborhood. The goal would be to pay homeless people $10 an hour to clean up homeless camps and surrounding areas. Organizers also hope to direct participants to resources that will help them find jobs, housing and medical treatment. One of the groups behind the effort, a charity called Jordan's Crossing, helped run a similar, but smaller program, in Franklin Township earlier this year. Franklin Township Trustee John Fleshman says workers cleaned up more than 5,000 pounds of garbage.

(KTUV) - Many people are reacting with outrage and anger after an Oakland man posted video of a jogger dispersing and throwing a homeless man ' s belongings into Lake Merritt and into the garbage.

Nelson asked Sintay what he was doing and Sintay responded "trying to do the right (expletive) thing" by cleaning up the lake. He denied throwing the homeless man's things in the lake the previous day. Nelson and others begin to ask Sintay questions. Sintay then steps towards Nelson and tries to snatch his cellphone.

"Are you out of your mind?" Nelson said as the men wrestled and exchanged profanities. Someone is heard yelling, but the fight is not seen on camera. Instead, shaky images are seen in the video, and then Nelson and others appear to eventually run away from Sintay -- all while live streaming on Facebook.

After both videos became widely viewed online -- outraging people in Oakland and around the U.S. -- Sintay was arrested. The 30-year-old was jailed on on robbery charges and was being held on $100,000 bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.

The homeless man whose belongings were thrown around by Sintay has been identified as Greg Markson. Most know Markson as "Jarew," The Mercury News reports. People in the area who saw the video began bringing Markson food and clothing.

A woman named Cari Geldreich says she offered to bring Markson's blankets to a laundromat for him, the paper reports. She describes Markson as very humble.

"Sometimes I take him a bag of apples," Geldreich told the newspaper -- a kind gesture that stood in stark contrast to what Markson experienced just days earlier from "Jogger Joe."
