Free Speech by bubbletim on Jul 1, 2012
Creating large floating soap bubbles has been a passtime of mine for many years. I call it "fleeting art" and I let anyone that wants to try it to give it a go. After all the years of doing it and people always asking where my tip jar was, I started putting out a fish bowl for people to donate to help pay for the bubble mix. The City of Monrovia, Ca recreation department and the Monrovia PD have now informed me that I am panhandling/soliciting. I have not been cited yet but have been shut down 2 times. If you have any ideas or suggestions they will be greatly appreciated. I will keep my fellow buskers informed on what progresses in the future. Keep entertaining and making people smile.

I'm afraid Officer Friendly has it backwards. The burden of proof always resides with the Plaintiff, in this case the city. They would have to prove you actively solicited money. This would be impossible if it never happened. They would also need witnesses. Just accepting...

RE: income by hairy on Mar 22, 2012
I think you're missing the point of busking. It's to perform an ART for tips. This takes TALENT. If you're just into $, stick with begging, go to school, become a lawyer, and make a few million $.
