Woman arrested for trying to feed homeless sues over local ordinance
“You’re under arrest. yes. I am? yes for violating the city ordinance.”
FEEDING THE HOMELESS IS APPARENTLY CRIMINAL IN SOME PLACES.
A 78 YEAR OLD WOMAN KNOWS THIS ALL TOO WELL.
AFTER SHE WAS ARRESTED SEVEN MONTHS AGO FOR GIVING FOOD TO TRANSIENTS IN HER COMMUNITY.
NOW…THE GRANDMOTHER IS LAWYERED UP.
AND IS SUING THE CITY…FOR IT’S ORDIDANCE THAT BANS PEOPLE FROM FEEDING THE HOMELESS IN CITY PARKS.
“To be told you cannot feed the hungry despite what the circumstances are is sad but it makes me really really angry to put it bluntly.”
THE CITY MAYOR SAYS YOU’RE ALLOWED TO FEED THE HOMELESS AT CHURCHES OR SHELTERS OR ANY PRIVATE PROPERTY. THE ORDIDANCE IS SPECIFIC TO CITY PARKS…AS A DETERENCE FROM HOMELESS SETTING UP SHOP.
