Police Restrain Hundreds of People As Food Trashed

• Information Clearinghouse

When the bank foreclosed on the Laney Supermarket grocery store, managers were left with thousands of pounds of food and nowhere to put it. So, they moved non-perishable items to the parking lot for those who might need it. As news of the give-away spread throughout the neighborhood, a crowd numbering in the hundreds quickly swooped in.

But the goods never made it into the hands of people who desperately needed, as local police barricaded the stockpile of food. They called in a disposal company and tossed every bit of it into the trash, angering many of those who had hoped they could take some of the food home.

Stealing food from hungry people is a tactic guaranteed to get cops killed.  Never mind guns: enough thrown rocks can kill a cop.  I've seen it done -- never mind when or where -- and it can certainly happen again.  WHAT IDIOT ORDERED THIS??
