90-year-old charged with giving meal to homeless man

  • (CNN) -- Arnold Abbott handed out four plates of food to homeless people in a South Florida park. Then police stopped the 90-year-old from serving up another bite.
    "An officer said, 'Drop that plate right now -- like I had a weapon,'" Abbott said.
    Abbott and two pastors in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, were charged for feeding the homeless in public on Sunday, the city's first crackdowns under a new ordinance banning public food sharing, CNN affiliate WPLG reported.
    Now they face possible jail time and a $500 fine, WPLG said.
    Despite some criticism from homeless advocates, city officials have vowed the new rules will be enforced.
    "Just because of media attention we don't stop enforcing the law. We enforce the laws here in Fort Lauderdale," Mayor Jack Seiler told WPLG.
    He defended the law in an interview with the Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
    "I'm not satisfied with having a cycle of homeless in the city of Fort Lauderdale," Seiler said. "Providing them with a meal and keeping them in that cycle on the street is not productive."
    But Abbott, who has been helping feed homeless people in the area through his Love Thy Neighbor nonprofit since 1991, said authorities are targeting the city's most vulnerable residents.
    "These are the poorest of the poor. They have nothing. They don't have a roof over their head," he said. "Who can turn them away?"
    Recently, the city has also passed an ordinance limiting the storage of personal property in public, WPLG said. Then came the restrictions for food sharing.
    "The city passed an ordinance requiring us to have a Porta-Potty. It's ridiculous. The whole thing was designed to rid Fort Lauderdale of its homeless," Abbott said. "Police told me anyone who touches a pan ... anyone who is involved, will be arrested."
    It's a battle Abbott has fought before. In 1999 he sued the city for banning him from feeding homeless people on the beach -- and won, according to WPLG.
    He said the threat of charges won't stop him from doing it again.
    "I'm not afraid of jail. I'm not looking to go, but if I have to, I will," he said.
    On Wednesday, Abbott said he'll be at Fort Lauderdale Beach, ready to serve another meal.

  • Fort Lauderdale/Florida area is teeming with retired Jew Bankers/Lawyers/insurance/real esate etc who have spent their entire working lives parasitically scamming others.

    Having a zionist Jew owned/run banking system,
    the prole is conned in a myriad of ways, falsely tried/convicted, repoed, evicted.

    Now homeless
    - the scum persecute them further, as they don't want to be reminded (in retirement) of the results of their 'handywork'

    The Masonic run police are their personal 'en_forcers'

    Does that mean to say that this type of selfishness on the part of the city is something that you support?

    Seville orange is a hybrid between Citrus maxima (pomelo) and Citrus reticulata (mandarin)
    reticulata: Schneider, 1801 described in Boa. Species taxon name: Boa reticulata Schneider, 1801. Original spelling: Boa reticulata.
    reticulatus, is Latin meaning "net-like", or reticulated, and is a reference to the complex color pattern (Inter-net)

    Used in marmalade originally 'Dark', 'sugary' and 'Bitter' (JA-mes + JA-'NET' Keiller Scottish Rite Masons industrialised Marmalade process)
    Bitter orange supplements have been linked to a number of serious side effects and deaths
    The fruit (Bigrade)is rarely consumed locally in Andalusia.

    15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.

    17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

  • FYI -- this is a classic case of a "law" that doesn't deserve our obedience.

    You are morally allowed -- even required -- to circumvent it any way you can.

    When the Corporal Works of Mercy are outlawed... I'm sorry, but NO!

    Not at all.  Simply that Frank the Communist Heretic is not at all the reason that I find the ordinance objectionable, and that your citing his "moral authority" made me gag.

    Pope Francis has not spoken on this law, only in condemning the selfishness that is behind its promulgation. However, if he did speak on it I would think that the thing to do would be to join in unity with him when he is against those who violate the law of God.
