feeding the homeless: act of charity or crime?Nov 07, 2014

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Despite being charged with violating a new law by feeding the homeless in South Florida, 90-year-old Arnold Abbott said he's not deterred and even went back out to serve more food at a public park. The faceoff in Fort Lauderdale over the ordinance restricting public feeding of the homeless has pitted those with compassionate aims against residents and businesses trying to protect their neighborhoods.

They were accused of breaking the ordinance and each faces up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.  Click to read more...
