This cop didn't want the world to see how he was treating a homeless man...

    Now that's a great story and in sharp contrast to many of the stories we get about bad cops.

    Thanks Mikhael - it helps to restore my faith in the human race

    Good Cop, Free donut


    That said I'd point out the he might actually be breaking the law. In several places in Washington it's illegal to feed the homeless except in designated areas .

    (A travesty of legal oppression if there ever was one)

    The law couldn't keep me from feeding the poor or anyone else. Doing good trumps the law, no matter what punishment the law would give out. I swear, rolling eyes, common sense and doing evil is trying to win out.

    Same Tigg. You'd just have to jail me like the old man from Florida. After all, the Disciples were jailed for Christ's work.

    Actually they could, and in some cases, I'm afraid, should.

    There was a thread either here or in current events that's gone down this road - in short, it's great to want to help those who need it (in fact IMO it's at the heart of Christianity), but you're over-simplifying a complex issue. For starters, there are a lot of slugs who pretend to be homeless/broke/etc to get free handouts. In fact most of the people you see on the streets with their cardboard signs/etc fit that description. And even for those who are genuinely in need, there are other considerations about when/where/how you help. If I find thread I'll post a link...

    Well, Bill, as long as I'm out trolling (although I think that's kind of being harsh. I'm sure if abortion was somehow involved as was pointed out I'd be considered a hero)

    But, I digress:

    Here's a real troller (he's got a blog where he does NOTHING but troll) testing your (and his) assumption about the guys with the signs. He discovers something interesting.
