149 KarmaliteNone >If you are having a birthday party here that’s perfectly legal you may feed anyone you wish at a birthday party. Your soccer team, they win, they come here let’s have a pizza party, no problem that’s completely legal," event organizer Leslie Gollub said. "The only people not allowed to be served in this park and all of El Cajon are the homeless." The law actually says that?
108 LicensedAttorney2016 No homeless people are actually starving in California unless they choose to. Handing out a few meals in a public park is not necessary to anyone's survival. If people really want to help the homeless, there are countless lawful avenues for doing so that are safer and more effective in the long-term. Ordinances like this are for health and safety reasons. There are parks in California that have been completely overrun by the homeless, to the point that it's no longer safe for local residents to enjoy the parks. Coastal California is hit especially hard by the homeless because it's a politically liberal place that has year-round good weather, creating a perfect storm for homeless from the rest of the country to flood in and take advantage of local residents. There's also a raging Hep A epidemic in California, mainly among the homeless. Local authorities need to move the homeless to designated campsites or shelters, but they should not be allowed to set up shop in public parks, and anyone who abets that behavior should be penalized. Encouraging the homeless to continue living in illegal encampments will not help curb the Hep A outbreak.

4 Malcheon I misread the title and thought it said arrested for breeding homeless people...
10 Felinomancy Well, the comments section in this thread is disheartening. "No one starves in California"... "homeless people are so because they choose the life, they're just lazy", "they're all bums and drug addicts", etc. I was wondering about what happened to compassion to the poor, but then again we're talking about a country where being bankrupt due to medical bills is considered to be a feature, not a bug.
2 RiverXer They'll be fine if they demand a jury trial.
5 Ayuhno I know they have the law for liability reasons or whatever, but this is definitely a time when just a slap on the wrist called for.
4 VonHermanhauser Yes, more and more major and even small cities are enacting codes like this, claiming that you have to have a fucking food handler's permit to give somebody food that you didn't even prepare yourself. Pretty soon they will mandate that all homeless people have to go out and buy houses, or that they don't have a right to exist or some shit
10 fblonk Some laws should be broken. People need food. It is one of our weaknesses.
3 Nichijo Feed the homeless, house the hungry.
