Homeless Man awarded $100k

Yes, Matthew Chapman, a homeless man was awarded $100k when he located fugitives in a white van.  Sounds like something out of the movies especially if it comes from sunny Southern California, right?

Sorry to put a damper on things, but just how good is that good fortune? I would really like to think this man will make good use of that money just like thousand of us may already have designs on what we would do with it. But it’s not our money…it’s his. So, let’s put one of those reminders on one of our many ‘smart’ devices exactly one year from now and see what becomes of Mr. Matthew Chapman, the $100,000 homeless man.Yes, this is what movies are made of, good or not so good with a morbid twist. Don’t hold your breath.

  1. This story reminds me of a similar situation involving a documentary of a homeless man who was given 100k. It was an intriguing story , but unfortunately I didn’t get to see what eventually became of him.
    Hopefully, he uses it to his advantage to re-stabilize himself permanently.
