90-year-old Florida resident Arnold Abbott was arrested THREE TIMES for refusing to stop feeding the homeless.
The repercussions of his kindness could be steep. If found guilty of violating the city ordinance laws, he faces 60 days in jail or a $500 fine.
Abbott has been clear that he is totally prepared to go to jail over this issue.
“Why do I keep doing this?” he asked rhetorically. “Because these are my people and they deserve to be fed.”
The City Of Ft. Lauderdale and it’s employees are way out of line!
For the first arrest on Sunday, half a dozen officers with the Ft. Lauderdale Police Department descended on where Abbott and his charity members were handing out hot meals to local homeless people. One officer demanded that he “drop that plate right now! Others picked up the food and tossed it in the garbage with a plethora of homeless people watching. Just who do these people think they are?
In the Biblical illustration of Slaves and Masters, the City Council and Employees are the SLAVES!!!!! Not the Masters!!!!
Red Skelton said it best! “From the people to the leaders, not the leaders to the people! Our country has lost it’s mind!
