Abbott was charged again on Wednesday night for violating a new city law in Ft. Lauderdale that essentially prevents people from feeding the homeless.
“I expected it” he said in a Sun Sentinel report. “At least this time they let us feed people first.”
The new law in Ft. Lauderdale comes after the city announced in January that people are restricted from camping, panhandling, food sharing and engaging in other “life sustaining activities.” The laws regarding food sharing where ironically enacted on Halloween when millions of people were out sharing candy.
There’s laws against burning your town down and looting, too, but they don’t seem to be as hard assed about that as they are with a 90 year old man feeding homeless people. What a world we live in.
I hope he keeps it up anyway. If I was 90 years old, I wouldn’t give a crap. The jail time isn’t going to stop him from being able to feed people, it isn’t going to cost him a job. And really, he probably won’t get hurt in jail.
