Social Experiment: Homeless Drug Addict Vs. Homeless Father

When Youtube star, Coby Persin set out to conduct a social experiment, he never guessed what would happen next.

Persin posted up on the streets of New York City, with tattered clothes and a cardboard sign. He first attempted to beg for money holding a sign that said "homeless, need money for weed, drugs and alcohol." The results were surprising.
