homeless extortion

There is an apparently homeless guy who always hangs round one corner that I walk past on the way to work. Twice now I've seen other homeless men go up to him and give him something. He always talks to them pleasantly and they answer pleasantly, but I still can't help the feeling that this guy is extorting the other homeless people in the neighborhood. And if he is, I'm not sure if I should do anything about it. I doubt the police are going to care if none of the victims complain. And I could be completely wrong. Still, it bothers me.
