In the following news item there is either a typo or one very amazing failure of logic.

Quote:
Albuquerque police arrested two men who were trying to help the homeless by giving them food.

Every Sunday for the past four years, Alfonso Hernandez has been part of a group that feeds the homeless food on Fourth Street and Copper Ave.

As part of his fellowship, Hernandez said he serves the homeless fruit and pizza, but last month he ran into trouble. He was cited for not having a business license.

Police said they told Hernandez not to come back or he could be arrested, but he did anyway. Officers arrested him and Michael Herrick, another man who was passing out the food.

According to the police report, the pair were arrested for not having a permit, also for refusing to obey officers.

"Just go get a permit, why don't you do that?" Action 7 News reporter Natalie Swaby asked Hernandez.

"Well as I said, I don't need a permit. I have the constitution I have mandated from all mighty God to treat my fellow human beings as I'd like to be treated," said Hernandez.

He said he will fight the charges in court and said this setback won't slow his efforts to help those in need.

Police said this is a serious issue because there was a seperate instance, not connected to Hernandez, where someone fed the homeless with a permit and people got sick.

@dyslexia,
That's not a typo, that's a dangling participle Smile The homeless already had permits so they should have left Fernandez alone.

@Mame,
Or was the permit in lieu of a plate?

@dyslexia,
I got that, but they can't eat a permit either, and it isn't like the city is feeding them, just providing the paper...

@ossobuco,
I'll probably be arrested for paying for someone's lunch.

@dyslexia,
Could the police be suspecting him of taking monetary donations and basically pocketing the money while feeding the homeless some scraps just to cover his bases if only at the minimum of his expense?

Thinking on the lines of permit for non-profit collections and activities....

Suspicions mean nothing and thay confer no jurisdiction.

Let them prove their case.

Where might the participle that's dangling be, Mame?









'separate' is misspelled.

Someone fed the homeless with a permit? Sounds like they used a permit instead of, maybe, a fork?

Goofy. I guess we have to sneak around to feed hungry people.Ya can't even be kind. Be ye kind, one to another. Feed the hungry. That is, after you've been given permission.

@Pemerson,
JTT didn't write Police said this is a serious issue because there was a seperate instance, not connected to Hernandez, where someone fed the homeless with a permit and people got sick.

That was in the article Dys posted, Pemerson.
