      Florida Couple Fined $746 For Crime Of Feeding Homeless People

      Florida Couple Fined $746 For Crime Of Feeding Homeless People

      By Scott KeyesMay 12, 2014
      LAST FEEDING IN MANATEE PARK MAY 7, 2014 - YouTube

      Every Wednesday, the Jimenezes feed more than a hundred people a hearty lunch with dishes of chicken patties, macaroni salad, and fresh vegetables, among others. The meals are entirely funded by private donations and staffed with volunteers.

      However, Daytona Beach is one of a handful of cities that enacted ordinances barring individuals from serving food in public. Last week, nearly a half-dozen police officers showed up at Manatee Island Park, where a long line of people had queued to get a meal, and served citations to the Jimenezes and volunteers.

      Those homeless people should be put in camps. I always call the cops on them when I see them with their stupid signs. They are disgusting. Just my two cents no offense sorryno tsorry

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      The homeless are lucky we don't make it mandatory to beat their asses on sight.

      There have been a few social experiments on this topic lately:

      Fuck The Poor?


      Have the Homeless Become Invisible?


      The Importance of Appearances Experiment


      Our perception of homeless people is a large part of the problem, so we can start by analysing our own biases and being the change we wish to see, as well as appealing to lawmakers.

      Don't give them any money, they're just going to spend it on drugs and fancy sleeping bags, and those charities are just going to spend it on worthless fucking bologna sandwiches. Who even likes bologna? They can easily get a job, there's a reason those positions are labeled "entry." The only help those people need is a night in jail lol!

      And those videos are rigged. Of course they didn't help the guy on the ground in that video, he was speaking french! And they just got a bunch of people that can't recognize faces for that other experiment. I would have taken that guy's original leaflet. FTP yo!

      Pleased to hear you watched the vids, OP!
      You sure put a lot of effort into that pseudo-sociopathic persona.

      You're just a bologna apologist.

      Good grief.

      Welcome to planet Earth, where no good deed goes unpunished.
      Be free from passion, unmoved by joy or grief,
      and submit without complaint to unavoidable necessity.
      That is the way of the Stoics.

      Cities all over America are becoming extremely cruel to the homeless

      Have you ever given food to a homeless person?

      By Michael Snyder | The Economic Collapse Blog

      Well, if you do it again in the future it might be a criminal act depending on where you live. Right now, there are dozens of major U.S. cities that have already passed laws against feeding the homeless. As you will read about below, in some areas of the country you can actually be fined hundreds of dollars for just trying to give food to a hungry person. I know that sounds absolutely insane, but this is what America is turning into. Communities all over the country are attempting to “clean up the streets” by making it virtually illegal to either be homeless or to help those that are homeless. Instead of spending more money on programs to assist the homeless, local governments are bulldozing tent cities and giving homeless people one way bus tickets out-of-town. We are treating some of the most vulnerable members of our society like human garbage, and it is a national disgrace.

      ''Don't give them any money, they're just going to spend it on drugs and fancy sleeping bags, and those charities are just going to spend it on worthless fucking bologna sandwiches. Who even likes bologna? They can easily get a job''

      Im not sure if you're trolling, alot of homeless people come from poor countries like romania, ukraine, albania etc and has escaped because of war or other reasons. Saying that a homeless person will just buy drugs is in most cases wrong, thats just a stereotypical picture media has created. A couple of weeks ago there was a documentary in Sweden where a guy followed homeless people to see what they're doing once they stop begging, in ALL of these cases the homeless people either returned to very poor homes or no homes at all. Oh and ''they can easily get a job'' thats just stupid, in alot of countries its very hard to get a job atm and even people with education can't get them, and sadly the company would almost always hire the ''ethnical'' person wanting the job.

      I really think the user was just sarcastically reflecting the common stereotypical point of view on the homeless, without necessarily sharing said point of view him/herself.

      Poe's Law. Every time I smart off on the internet, at least one person thinks I'm being serious.

      Speaking of trolling, I am wondering whether this is a troll video. Maybe it's a satire video? It really can be hard to tell.
