Is it right to arrest people for feeding the homeless?
Nearly 30 people have been arrested in florida for feeding the homeless in parks. The city is saying it's because they didn't have a permit to serve food in the parks, but really, were they doing anything wrong? Was it right to arrest them and put them in jail for trying to help those in need?
This seems a bit extreme and ridiculous. Are you sure this is real and not some sort of hoax or ploy?
The Hypocrites say it's because they don't have a permit to serve food in public parks yet families serve food to eachother when they have a picnic don't they? The real reason is they don't want homeless people to congregate in the parks and or they don't want to be liable for anything that might happen as a result If,they would just come out and say that they would be more believable when they open their mouth and close their minds and hearts to the needy.
No I don't think it is right that they should have been arrested, in fact i think it is disgraceful. These people are obviously giving their time to try and make a difference to a homeless person. I wrote a hub on homeless people and I think that its just an excuse saying that they don't have a permit to serve food. They are not charging money for it or providing a paid service, they are just helping people by giving them a meal. They should be given a medal, not a criminal record and a jail sentence. What is the world coming to when it punishes those who help others out of the goodness of their hearts?
Of course it isn't right. Personally I have a soft spot in my heart for the homeless. I feel so guilty having a warm safe place to go home to, and they're out there everyday braving the elements. I'm usually the girl people yell at for giving the homeless 10 or 15 bucks (most people think they're just going to spend it on booze).
How some people can just turn their heads (and hearts) against their fellow man is really quite disturbing.
The people giving away the food were not charging for it: therefore they were not 'serving' the food; they were simply sharing it.
This incident is symptomatic of the moves being made: in America and across Europe, toward totalitarian statehood. This might sound a bit extreme but it is, nonetheless, still true.
A little while back American police were physically attacking, and arresting people for doing no more than dancing at a monument in Washington (was it the Jefferson Memorial?). Dancing is not now allowed. But the wholesale trampling into the dirt of the American Constitution: America's finest monument, by the government, banks and authorities continues unabated.
What the authorities have realized is that there is a growing awareness: amongst ordinary people - all around the world - that they do not live in democracies. People are beginning to see through the shallow charade that masquerades as democracy.
There is a great reckoning coming. And the authorities are chipping away at your civil liberties in preparation for when it arrives.
I don't know whether there is a law there that prohibit to it so. But to my sense, there is no problem at feeding the homeless at any public places like in a park; is there any difference between feeding your own family there and the homeless ? Nothing significant. Maybe, the concerned ones in this matter need to clarify why this happen.
no not at all thats stupid i dont agree with that at all its just not fair
