Abbott wasn't arrested for feeding the homeless
He was cited for creating a hazardous situation in the city and the fascists have been lying about it ever since.
Abbott organizes 500+ events where he puts out tables and food, but doesn't provide job johnnies or facilities to wash. Furthermore he needs a license to prepare food for that many people. It's just standard operating procedure for any public food facility.
The ordinance, approved by the Commission 4-1, codified a list of rules for outdoor food distribution, including that sites must be 500 feet away from residential areas, have bathrooms or portable toilets, equipment for hand washing and consent of the owner. The law allows indoor feedings at houses of worship.
"You have to balance the interests of everybody in the community," Seiler told PolitiFact Florida. "What we always try to do is make sure everybody gets to enjoy our parks. Every single thing we have done with the ordinance is a balance."
