    The police justified it by stating

    I think this is an example of how unfree we are becoming. Am I the only one or does anyone concur?

    Sounds like they need to find a new park to live in.

    Giving people food = get arrested. Seems legit.

    Yeah coz feeding homeless people in 10 sq foot = using 1000+ acres to graze your cattle on without a permit.

    If I throw a party for a bunch of my friends and they are pissing and shitting all over the place, I fully expect to be told not to hold get togethers there again. Public place or not.

    Welcome to America? Not far from my house I have traveled to donate clothing to the homeless. They sell it to buy supplies and food there are a few of them that are jerks and drug addicts you have to watch out. Majority are just stuck I have been to see a family who moved in the area because their father got a job at a local plant. He worked there for a year and then was layoff from the job. He is currently looking for another job while looking they decided to continue to stay in the area. They feel he has a better shot at getting a job then back in WV. They have family in the area but not very close to where they want to stay. So they cannot afford an apartment so they continue to be homeless.

    The news clipping I posted to start this thread also had comments from a local Daytona Beach native:

    He may have been careless in that statement, but I fail to see how his observations are not valid about everything else. Besides, his statement about white people not going to be willing to go to the ghettos may not have been worded great but it is true. The only part that was wrong was the "black people know their culture" part, one wrong thing out of everything else posted.

    The government can't have people doing jobs the government is expected to perform. We can't have needling less government or standing in the way of the work of true professionals.

    I think that your source is not any more reliable than anybody else who spouts things off on the internet. The waging war on the constitution part was more than likely a bunch of hyperbole as well. He also makes a number of other claims that it is doubtful he could prove, but are pretty typical of regional-politics rumor-mongering.

    That is a fair point, and it would be one thing if it was just him saying these things, but I posted a number of links above that suggest the same thing, and here's some more:

    The last post shows how it has become something of a running gag.

    I've tried giving homeless people food before. They usually get pissed off and ask if you have any cash.

    And those thoughts would be legitimate, if that concern was directly accounted for in the after-event clean up.

    The article does not truly address the issue of whether or not the park was properly cleaned up after each event. All we get are some vague words from the Daytona police - who have been shown to be hardly reliable - that could be interpreted as sort of addressing that.

    Thanks but no thanks. We're perfectly happy continuing to disperse the homeless at a sweet profit.
