11. Mayor’s Homeless Strategy Meets Skepticism -

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. is a regular at the Starbucks at Union Avenue and McLean Boulevard.
Last week, as criticism began for his new police initiative to deal with the homeless, Wharton stopped for a coffee on his way to a town hall meeting and encountered another regular at the next table.
“There’s a homeless gentleman who I see there every morning. He will not accept handouts,” Wharton told reporters this week. “He’s just the kindest gentleman you will find anywhere. I don’t offer to buy him anything. I sit down at the table next to him – he doesn’t want to be disturbed.”
Someone at another table snapped a cell phone picture of Wharton in seeming indifference to the homeless man sitting a table away. The picture went viral as critics of the new direction made their case before Wharton had rolled it out.
“They created this story … which is just an outright lie,” Wharton continued. “That hurts.”
The complex relationship between two Memphians who see each other several times a week but don’t really know each other demonstrates how complex the problem of the homeless is in Memphis, and perhaps in other cities.
