This makes me really sad. An elderly man, 90 years old, along with two pastors were arrested for feeding the homeless in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Florida has recently passed laws that criminalize the homeless. Citizens are not allowed to feed them. If they do, they risk jail time and/or a fine. Also, the homeless are not able to have their belongings out in public. If they do, the police are able to confiscate them. Where exactly are homeless people supposed to keep their stuff? Are they supposed to get a storage room or a locker? Oh wait, I forgot, they just shouldn’t be homeless right? They should pick themselves up by their bootstraps and get a job, right?
