These people were gathered at a public park. Public. Meaning everyone has a right to gather and use this land. Homeless, families, fishermen, what have you.
Should it be known that if you are homeless and hungry, come here and you will be fed, the place would be overrun. So much for use by all. I certainly wouldnt want to have a family day picnic with 3000 homeless. Just not my idea of a relaxing afternoon.

You contradict yourself in nearly the same breath.
You say everyone has a right to use public land, and then go on to say that the homeless shouldn't.
The main point I am trying to make, albeit poorly is the law is there to prevent large masses from gathering in a public area.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Try reading the article again and omit the word homeless and insert Klu Klux Klan. They are the public as well, how would you feel if this guy was bringing them crosses and 5 gallon pails of gas? Would that be okay to you?
