This made me laugh it was so stupid:
An activist was arrested while he was feeding homeless people in a public park.
Eric Montanez, 21, a member of Orlando’s Food Not Bombs, violated a city ordinance against feedings in the park Wednesday evening, police said.
Each group is allowed to feed only 25 people, but undercover officers saw Montanez feed 30, police spokeswoman Barbara Jones said.
Food Not Bombs and Montanez are plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit against the city, claiming that the ordinance is unconstitutional, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Montanez was charged with a misdemeanor count of prohibited activity in a park and was released from jail on a $250 bond.
Compared to the activity in the park we discussed yesterday, this seems rather benign. And I understand there are health regulations and all that, but is Orlando (or any major city in Florida, for that matter) really best served using undercover agents to stop excessive food distribution?
That has to be a pretty serious waste of resources. The only example I can come up with that would be as dumb is one I have to make up, like, say, your society is in the middle of the “GREATEST STRUGGLE OF OUR TIMES,” and rather than devote all the resources to the cause, you spend your time busting Tommy Chong, cracking down on porn, and kicking interpreters out of the service because they are gay. You have to dig pretty deep and be pretty creative to make something that stupid up.
