Description

In this investigative report, KGAN-TV dug deep into the lives of three men who panhandled daily in Cedar Rapids. After eight weeks of following the men and talking to their friends and family, KGAN found that they make several hundred dollars a day. One even owns a home. The panhandlers haven't returned since the story aired.
