USA: De gav hemlösa människor mat - fick 10.000-tals kronor i böter, hotas med fängelse

Ett empatiskt medelålders amerikanskt par från Florida, hjälpte regelbundet över 100 hemlösa människor överleva genom att ge dem mat. USA:s rättsvårdande myndigheter belönade paret, Debbie och Chico Jimenez med 10 000-tals kronor i böter och de hotas nu med fängelsestraff...

Florida couple fined thousands of dollars, threatened with jail time for feeding the homeless

from NBC:
Debbie and Chico Jimenez openly admit committing the act that earned them two citations apiece: feeding more than 100 people who are homeless in Daytona Beach.

 Police in Daytona Beach also threatened them with arrest and incarceration, if they offer any more of their home-cooked meals at Manatee Island Park, a gathering the Jimenezes say they’ve hosted every Wednesday for the past year.

 “The worst thing is, these are people we have grown to love, they’ve become like family to us, and now we’re not allowed to go down and do that anymore.

It’s just heartbreaking.

I have cried and cried and cried,” said Debbie Jimenez, 52, a retired auto parts store manager. She and her husband, 60, a retired construction manager, operate New Smyrna Beach-based ministry called “Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word.”

 “One of our (homeless) friends said that Wednesday is just not going to be Wednesday anymore,” Debbie Jimenez added.

“- We were given 10 days to either pay the fine or tell them we’re going to court. We’re going to court. The police don’t like it. But how can we turn our backs on the hungry? We can’t.”

In all, police officers ticketed six people, including four volunteers who helped the Jimenezes on Wednesday – one of them, a man in a wheelchair who recently escaped homelessness and participated “to pay it forward,” Debbie Jimenez said. The fines levied by authorities total $2,238.

The police claim that some of the homeless people have been gathering in the park in a drunk and disorderly fashion, and thus they’re taking it out on the compassionate people who are trying to better the situation.

This is a perfect example of big government vs private charity. Statist government hates private charity because it does not allow officials the luxury of control. [...]

Authorities in Daytona Beach, Florida have increased efforts to dissuade unofficial organizations from feeding the city’s homeless, threatening trespassing fines to longtime Good Samaritans should they counter the city’s official social services plan.

A group of volunteers who have prepared food for the Daytona Beach homeless population – or anyone who is hungry, the organizers say – for the past year were given citations and trespass warnings by law enforcement this week.

The city, like dozens of local municipalities across the United States, is attempting to discourage groups outside the approved channels from offering assistance, in hopes of funneling charity to centralized homeless services in the area, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
“The ordinance is there, so if we catch you, we're going to cite you,” Police Chief Mike Chitwood said. “If you want to feed people, and you want to do a good, Christian act, we encourage you to coordinate with the social service agencies.”

Chico and Debbie Jimenez, founders of Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word, and their volunteers were targeted this week at Manatee Island Park despite their reportedly responsible, respected efforts to feed the hungry.

Their citations amounted to threats of a $273 fine for trespassing and $100 fine for facility use without a permit.
“We feed anybody that's hungry,” Chico Jimenez said.

  1. -Elderly cancer survivor tackled, charged with ‘resisting’ after he couldn’t hear commands-

    May 10, 2014

    by Sean T. Taeschner, M.Ed.
    COEUR D’ALENE, ID — Police responded to a call about a man who had been “creepy” while attempting to use an outdoor phone booth in sub-freezing temperatures. The man they found was a senior citizen who’s hearing impairment prevented him from immediately responding to officers’ commands. Police tackled him, ripped out his feeding tube, and then charged him with resisting arrest.

    David M. Barger, 69, of Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, is a neck cancer survivor whose weight, according to Coeur d’ Alene Jail’s finest, is 108 pounds. He stands 5’8” tall and is cold most of the time. His is a daily struggle to swallow dinner without choking; his feeding tube disappears into his stomach and has become a tripping hazard at best.

    I got to know David while listening to him call in on Henry Shively’s radio show, From the Trenches World for the past year. David is very intelligent and is a political activist in his city. In fact, he is so well known by the community that people smile when he politely greets them and listen to his high-end vocabulary and knowledge of political happenings. Some find him too difficult to understand. According to David, others find him a nuisance to eliminate, if necessary.

    Being this politically active has placed him in the crosshairs of the local courts, prosecutor’s office, police, and possibly, Homeland Security. David always carries a pen and notepad and his mind works like a digital tape recorder. An example of his colorful vocabulary: “prestitutes”.
    Why would this reporter be interested in writing about an Idaho resident one state away from Washington?[...]
