A Providence ordinance that aims to stop panhandling is no longer being enforced in the city.  The ACLU of Rhode Island announced yesterday that officers will stop carrying out the ordinance because it, quote, "directly targets the homeless" and prevents those people from earning a living.  The law made it illegal for transients to ask for money on highways, the streets, in parking lots, amusement parks and playgrounds.  The ACLU is also pushing to shut down a similar ordinance in Cranston.
