Others think he’s been too quick to judge a couple he knows nothing about.
“Do you really know their backstory? Don’t be quick to judge someone because you’re angry. How do you know if that person works and their spouse doesn’t work because of problems? That all the money in their pocket is to pay their bills that the new car was a gift? How do you know that’s not the case?” one person questioned.
PatrickGibson then responded:
“Let’s just call it what it is. We can all sit around and believe in sunshine and rainbows saying the old don’t judge a book by its cover crap, but the reality of it is that so so so many people are abusing the system that was put in place for struggling families. If we can’t even acknowledge that there is a problem, then how can it ever be corrected. And a brand new car as a gift? Really? If they have friends or family with money like that, then its a shame they still need $800 a month in food stamps.”
I agree on that don’t know the entire story, but I think Patrick Gibson still makes a valid point.
Sadly, the reality is that there are stories about people abusing the welfare system which justify Gibson’s reaction.
Abuse happens. It is a problem. If we don’t call it out when we see it, how do we expect anything to ever be done about it?
