Florida: Good Samaritan Feeding Homeless People could go to jail.
Arnold Abbot, a ninety year old man who prepares food and give it to the homeless people was being arrested by police, goes to prison and is likely to be fined with $US500. As a good Samaritan, every week he makes hundreds of meals and gave to the homeless people in the church where he volunteered at Fort Lauderdale’s Sanctuary Church. He was stopped by police because they said his actions are against the new law ordinance which is banning the sharing of foods in public areas. According to the report one of the cops said “Drop the plate right now”,. Mr Abbot was charged together with the other two church ministers. But Mr. Abbot didn’t give up yet, instead he promised to get back with foods on the streets once he got out of jail. MR. Arnold Abbot has already been feeding homeless people with a team of volunteers since 1991. The homeless people and onlookers outraged and shouted to police officers “shame on you”.
