The man is mentally ill. Just because this is a reprehensible way to react to charity does not mean he should be hated for it. He is homeless because he is sick, and deserves pity rather than rebuke.
Most of America's homeless are homeless because they have some psychiatric diagnosis. He seems to fit the criteria for paranoid schizophrenia. Many of you, including the author, who hold him to some normal standard of right action are ignoring the fact that he isn't normal. If he were normal he would be living in the apartment which has been provided for him.
