You get jail time and a $500 fine if you do.

I don't know the details. Maybe it was right, maybe it was wrong. We also base our opinions on an overly simplified version of events, leaving out context that tell the real story.

@donald.Keller. I agree. Then Again I tend to follow Teleological theories of ethics. That is that details and circumstances as well as outcomes are what determine the morality of an action. It would seem that some who have voted feel deontolgicaly about feeding the homeless.
