Yeah, arresting people for feeding the homeless is ludicrous.

two ministers and a 90 year old homeless advocate face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine for sharing food with homeless people in public

homeless advocate arnold abbott
head of the group love thy neighbor
has been feeding the homeless for more than 20 years


abbott
along with pastors dwayne blackand and mark sims
were arrested on sunday after distributing food to the needy on a public sidewalk


4 people were fed before an officer told me to
drop that plate immediately
as though it were a weapon i was holding
and to go with him to the police car


the city has also made it illegal to sleep in public places
commissioner dean trantalis doesn t think the new laws are mean spirited


the city had previously tried to stop abbott from feeding the homeless on fort lauderdale beach in 1999
but abbott challenged the city in court and won


on wednesday we will feed on the beach
when confronted by the police
which i expect will happen
i will present them with a copy of the court order of 1999
it is my hope that they will honor that agreement but it is possible that they won t

That's terrible. As anarcho-capitalist, I believe in everyone's right to share their own property, including food, with anyone they want, but those corporate fascists come and start controlling everyone's lives, telling them what to do and what not to do.

So true. It's actually illegal to feed the homeless in some places. Some have even been arrested for the offense. The desire to do anything to help fellow human beings in America has been vilified and called "communist", "socialist" and or "foreign" . This seems to go against the American rugged individualist tradition.
