Drop the Paper Plate!
90 year-old Fort Lauderdale resident Arnold Abbott was arrested for feeding the homeless. The first time the police confronted Abbott they treated him like a criminal.
The first confrontation occurred on November 2nd when an officer literally told the humanitarian hero to “’Drop that plate immediately.’ As though it were a weapon,” Abbott recalled.We wouldn't want a 90 year-old man using a paper plate as a weapon. Abbott has vowed to continue to feed the homeless.
