I have lived in the same neighborhood for 30 years. During this time span the atmosphere and the quality of people have steadily declined.
Yesterday I got off work at about 6 and I stopped at a corner liquor/convenience store that I usually never stop at. I wanted to grab a half gallon of milk and the grocery store parking lot was packed.
When I got out of the car, a little boy around 7 years old was stationed at the door. He asked me for some money as I went in. I didn't give him any money but when I went in I told the cashier that there was a little boy outside begging for money. ALL FOUR of the people in line started cursing me, telling me I was a bitch to tell on the kid while the cashier went out and told the kid to leave. At first I defended myself. I said this is a CHILD at a LIQUOR store BEGGING on a DANGEROUS street. Then I decided it would be smarter to just leave.
Was I wrong or were they insane?

I don't know. I probably wouldn't have given him money but I wouldn't have told on him either. I usually give beggars food. Crackers, a sandwich...something like that. There would have been things in the convenient store that I could have bought and given to him. So, I would say that whether or not you were wrong depends on why you told on him. If you were really concerned, then no you weren't wrong. If you were just annoyed that he had asked you for money and you wanted him to go away, then yes, you were wrong.
