From Voice of San Diego:
“A homeless rights advocacy group plans to take legal action against the City of El Cajon after at least a dozen people were arrested Sunday for feeding the homeless,” the U-T reports. The story was all over the news yesterday, here’s KPBS. A 14-year-old was among those arrested.
“Arrested” is a strong word. The police handed out citations.
A group called Break the Ban dared to feed the homeless in a city park in violation of a newly approved city law that “banned the distribution of food on city-owned property. City officials said the ordinance was a response to the deadly hepatitis A outbreak,” reported Times of S.D.
