First of all, I agree that this stinks to high heaven. They are not doing this for the sake of public safety andeverybody knows
it. They are
doing it to try to drive out an unsightly aspect of their city. Instead of helping them they're taking the easy way out. They're weak.
On the other side of the coin, you can't tell me that the activists cannot take their food and feed the homeless somewhere else in the city that is
not affected by the law. There is a certain part of the city where this is not allowed, not the whole city. Seems to me that the activists are doing
this more for the attention than they are trying to do something good for the sake of it.
If I were homeless, and I was at one point in my life, I wouldn't mind walking an extra mile or two to eat. That's a small price to pay for a full
belly if you ask me. And no, I wouldn't look at that like I was giving in to "the man" and just blindly taking what they give me like a sheep. I
would look at it like I was getting what I need regardless of what other people try to do to keep that from happening.
People are just going about this in the wrong way. You can't fight authority by protests, peaceful or otherwise, and expect to win. Look what
happened in the '60's..... nothing changed. I used to stomp my feet and hold my breath when I was 5 years old and it didn't work back then either.
You have to give TPTB the impression that you are playing their game. That takes the focus off of you so you can circumvent their idiotic laws that
only serve them anyway.
Taking the homeless outside of the boundaries that were specified by the law is only one out of many ways to do something like this. This isn't the
only self-serving and backwards law in the U.S. Trust me. Remember, for every law there is a loophole around it. The only reason that people don't
take the time to find it is because they are not as well versed in the English language as those who wrote the law. It's either that or they know
what the loophole is and don't care because if they go about things in the shadows, quietly unseen and effective, then attention is not drawn to
And it sounds to me like that is the case here. Activists? More like media whores if you ask me.
Sorry, but if you're intelligent enough to be able to read and comprehend a law such as this one, then you're smart enough to find a way around
