Orlando Police Arrest Five More Outlaws for Their Unauthorized Feeding of the Homeless

|

Or-lan-do!

Story:

Orlando police arrested five more activists from behind a makeshift buffet table at Lake Eola Park on Wednesday evening, bringing to a dozen the number charged in the past week with violating city restrictions on feeding the homeless.

The members of the group Food Not Bombs were ladling out corn on the cob, rice, beans and watermelon to about 35 people when they were handcuffed. […]

They were violating a controversial city ordinance that prohibits sharing food with large groups in a downtown city park more than twice a year.

I wrote about the beginnings of this crackdown last week. Thanks to Kimberly Fara for the tip.
