Orlando police nab criminal mastermind for giving to the poor

The Orlando PD — at the instigation of the city council — seems to have found a connection between crime and hungry homeless people. Apparently if you feed them they will turn to crime! Why else did the PD bust Eric Montanez of the charity group Food Not Bombs? Mr. Martinez crime: feeding large groups of destitute people in the city center without a permit.

Under Orlando law (which is being challenged in court by anyone with half a brain) lets charities feed more than 25 people at a time within two miles of Orlando city hall only if they have a special permit. They can get two permits a year.

Because if you feed the homeless, the terrorists win.

Best part of the story are the technical details on Operation What Wouldn’t Jesus Do: Montanez was filmed by undercover officers on Wednesday as he served “30 unidentified persons food from a large pot utilizing a ladle,” according to an arrest affidavit. Police collected a vial of the stew Montanez was serving as evidence.

I wonder how much it has cost the City of Orlando to crack down on this threat to society?
