Times are getting so bad, you can’t help panhandlers anymore after this incident.
Baltimore resident Jacquelyn Smith was fatally stabbed by a panhandler on November 30 in the evening after she pulled over to give money to a person holding a sign that read, “Please help me feed my baby.”
Smith, an engineer by trade, was traveling with her family when they saw the suspect on the corner. Witnesses claim the suspect looked to be in her early 20s and was holding something that looked like a baby along with the “Please help me feed my baby” sign.
When Smith pulled up to the suspect, she rolled down the passenger window to hand the suspect the money and another suspect, a male, ran up to the car, stabbed Smith, grabbed her necklace and ran away along with the original panhandler. Smith was rushed to the hospital but she didn’t recover.
As Keith Smith talked about his wife, Jacquelyn Smith, he rattled off a list of characteristics he fell in love with: She was a career woman, a good mother, a church-goer and, most of all, a giving person.
Her kindness, he said, is what cost her her life.
Now Baltimore police are hunting for an apparent team of panhandlers who preyed on her good nature and stabbed her to death for a few dollars.
“She was trying to help someone out,” Keith Smith told ABC News. “I think the reality is, we forget about the times that we’re living in. You may have the best intentions on helping this person, but when you let a person get into your safe zone, you’re actually opening yourself up to whatever this person has intended for you.”
