You would imagine that in a city the size of Orlando the police would have plenty more to do than arrest people and waste tax dollars on a group who
are not hurting anyone. This is the problem with our legal system. Our police enforce these ridiculous statutes and policies. For all intents and
purposes, these are not even "laws", they are statutes.
Every time someone is arrested, they have to be transported to the jail where they are processed and booked and all paperwork taken care of. For each
person arrested for these stupid policies, that is one more cop off the street who should be fighting real crime. There is not one city in all of
America that does not cry for more police on the streets, but the fact is, if they were not arresting people who are not hurting anyone, not
destroying property, and not violating anyone's rights and thus not actually committing a crime.. there would be plenty of police. Instead, we arrest
people who do not actually hurt anyone, and the taxpayers fund it.
Here is a murder map for the city of Orlando. Take notice of how many "open" murders remain. This is something the police should be working on, not
arresting people for feeding homeless people.

Here you can find other crime stats for Orlando. It sure looks to me like there are better things police can be doing to make Orlando a better place
to live rather than arresting people who are not hurting anyone.

The real question here is... if you are feeding the homeless and you are arrested, who exactly is the victim of this "crime"?
