'Homeless Child Experiment' Shows Adults Refusing to Help (Video)


Yousef Saleh Erakat often produces and posts shocking and funny videos on his YouTube page under the handle "fouseyTUBE."

Erakat recently filmed a young boy named "Johannes" who played a homeless youngster with a sign, asking passersby in Santa Monica, Calif. for just enough money to buy his sister a meal, noted CrooksandLiars.com.

The video (below) is entitled "The Homeless Child Experiment."

Erakat wrote on his YouTube page:

I began this film with the intent of glorifying the goodness of society after watching the video shot in a European country where everyone gave Johannes a jacket when he was cold. I did not expect to capture so much lack of empathy. We shot all day, and came out with $2.10 which was all returned. The issue is not about him "not looking homeless enough" or "people thinking he's a scam." It's about how they don't even try to look and turn a blind eye so they can go about their days.
