Arnold Abbott, 90-Year-Old Activist, Cited Again for Feeding Homeless

abbott1A 90-year-old man has been arrested again – twice within a single week. His crime: feeding the hungry. Arnold Albert, a Fort Lauderdale resident, has been arrested twice for feeding the homeless despite a new city ordinance the bans feeding the homeless without first getting a city permit, and providing restrooms and hand-washing stations. But Abbott remains undeterred. He says “These are the poorest of the poor. They have nothing. They don’t have a roof over their heads. Who can turn them away?” Arrested for feeding the poorest of the poor – what has happened to this world?
