Fort Lauderdale police are finally cracking down on the city’s notoriously destructive ministers and charitable volunteers:
Fort Lauderdale police charged three men — including two pastors and a 90-year-old man — for feeding the homeless in public on Sunday, the first such cases made by the city after the a new ordinance effectively banning public food sharings took effect Friday.

The incident was caught on video, linked above at Florida station WPLG. The ordinance under which the men were arrested is one of a number of new Fort Lauderdale city rules related to homelessness. From South Florida’s Sun Sentinel:
The ordinance, approved by the city commission Oct. 22, is one of several recent efforts by officials to crack down on the city’s burgeoning downtown homeless population.
The latest law, which took effect Friday, limits where outdoor feeding sites can be located, requires the permission of property owners and says the groups have to provide portable toilets.
One of the men arrested—Arnold Abbott, the 90-year-old—says he will challenge the city’s rule in court.
