How could feeding the homeless be considered a crime?
90 year old man arrested for feeding the homeless. He says he wont give up. http://nydn.us/1ye7C1a
A lot of things that are crimes have no justification, a lot of crimes that occur go unseen. We are dealing with a major problem in today's society where our justice system is completely unjust.
You can ask the same thing about why one person is found guilty of a "justifiable" crime, while the other is let go.
Until we have a system that doesn't favor the rich over the poor, we will continue to run into these issues.
Although it is indeed wrong it is simply that the inconvenience of a homeless population in an area where "the city" wants nothing like that, takes priority. "They" want them somewhere else indeed and by reinforcing their occupation by providing positive reinforcement it becomes punishment for the Good Samaritan...
Yet in His eyes, what do you think one should do?
Its really not a crime, to feed the homeless. Even, It is our responsibility to look after those, who were unable to feed themselves. But, there might arise some problems, who doing some charities like these. But, How can a person be arrested, to help the homeless?
This is a sad example of how out of hand our government has become. They don't want the homeless fed because it might bring them near businesses that don't want their customers scared away. Which goes to show a deeper problem. Why would customers be scared off by the homeless population? Well the answer is anything that makes us uncomfortable we want to avoid. I have to wonder who elected the people who make things like this illegal? Why are people not calling for a step down?
I am glad though that this happened. It forces everyone to confront the issues, and deal with what we have become as a society.

Should prison inmates be allowed to vote in elections?Criminals in jail are there because they choose to operate outside the limitations that society has designed in law. Is it right that we give those same criminals a say in how those rules are made and how society is run?

How does society view homelessness as a fear or a disgrace?Does society look at the homeless as a disgrace, a fear that they may someday be homeless or how do you feel they view the homeless?

Here is the gist of it in a statement provided by the judge:"Many police practices may be useful for fighting crime — preventive detention or coerced confessions, for example,” she wrote, “but because they are unconstitutional they cannot be used, no matter how effective.”So much for...
