Guy who squats in front of 7-Eleven at Clark/Belden

If you pass by the 7-Eleven on a regular basis, you've probably seen the guy in the red shirt who sits in front of the store on two stacked milk crates. He seems to have taken up residence there in the past few months-- panhandling, sleeping, or chatting with a few friends who stand around, blocking the sidewalk.

If you pass by the 7-Eleven on a regular basis, you've probably seen the guy in the red shirt who sits in front of the store on two stacked milk crates. He seems to have taken up residence there in the past few months-- panhandling, sleeping, or chatting with a few friends who stand around, blocking the sidewalk.

On several occasions when he wasn't there, I've seen the crates and flattened cardboard boxes sitting on the ground. Four times I disposed of them. Four times he came back with new ones.

A few times in his absence, I've seen the crates stuffed between the mailboxes on the southwest corner of Clark & Belden. Once I saw him defecating in the alley off Belden.

First: Does this bother anyone else?

Second: Aside from the defecating and the littering (leaving the crates between the mailboxes)-- things which are hard to catch in the act-- is there anything illegal about his squatting there?

    I see the dude you talking about , he sits on the ground on the Clark side while people walk by with his legs stretched out , I've often wondered why the employees let him squat there , but I have no problem with it if 7eleven don't but I must say he looks tacky as heck .
