How do you deal with "his friends"?

Opinions please: I feel like he doesn't have any respectable friends. They all seem shady to me. One of them keeps bouncing around from house to house, borrowed money from him and took forever to pay it back. In my opinion, he shouldn't be friends with that person anymore.
And this i find particularly annoying: sometimes when we're out, he runs into old friends. They chat about old shady times (i'd rather not get into too much detail here) but ya know, stuff from his youth. Then exchange numbers etc. In my opinion, if these are characters from his past that he wants left in the past..... why does he say "let's keep in touch man" or why does he exchange numbers. Or why say "hey, man, if there's anything you need, call me." I'm perplexed and frankly, i'm annoyed.
In truth, he does not stay in touch. He does not go out with these guys. But i've told DF, find decent friends. Acquaint yourself with respectable individual. ... ya know, the types you can put on your resume for a reference. or people you can call when you need help moving... etc. Not friends from a darker time in your life... IMHO, i dont' care if you all have changed or what not. Just move on!!!
So, am I way off? To some degree i probably am. And maybe these encounters are harmless and i'm being paranoid. But i just feel like, why even call question to yourself. Make better friends. How hard is that?
Opinions? Can anyone relate? And how did you deal?
