Since Feeding the Homeless is Now Illegal, A Group Carried AR15s to Give Out Food—It Worked

By Matt Agorist

Dallas, TX — Feeding and clothing the homeless in the land of the free has now become a revolutionary act. Luckily, however, there are still good people willing to carry out that act.

In December 2014, the Dallas city council enacted Ordinance No. 29595, which makes it illegal to serve food to the homeless without jumping through a statist myriad of bureaucratic hoops, including a fee, training classes, and written notices.

One should not need to file multiple forms and pay a fee to obtain a permit to give food to those in need who are willingly ready to accept it. The folks at Don’t Comply know this.

Matthew Short, with the aptly named organization, Don’t Comply, and dozens of volunteers from children to adults alike took to the streets of Dallas this week to hand out food, sleeping bags, clothing, and tents to the area’s less fortunate.

As TFTP has reported on numerous occasions, often times, police will swoop in and shut down those who would dare defy the authority of the state and conduct charity without a permit. However, most organizations aren’t like Don’t Comply.

As they took to the streets this week, many of the members of the organization open carried their weapons. This was done—not out of an act of intimidation—but merely to assert rights as well as protect them.

The resultant heavily armed group of do-gooders effectively staved off any attempts by police to shut down the charitable efforts.

In talking with TFTP, Short tells us that although police drove by fairly often, they never stopped and never attempted to intervene.

“We are not complying with a bad law today,” said Short, who is the PR director of Don’t Comply said, echoing the sentiment from all of those in attendance this year. “Evidently the city of Dallas believes that it’s wrong, or bad, or unlawful for us to feed more than a certain number of people at a time. But, during Christmas, we want to show love to our community and give these people a chance to survive the winter, whether it be with blankets or coats, or just giving them a holiday party like today with all kinds of cookies, and goodies, turkey and dressing, and the whole nine yards.”

Dubbed “Feed the Need 5,” this was the fifth year in a row the group has conducted the event.

Below is the most amazing video showing the results of good people breaking bad laws.

As TFTP has reported at length, the war on the homeless, as well as the war on those who want to help them, is relentless. Just last month, during Thanksgiving, a group giving out food in Atlanta was shut down by police because they failed to pay the state for permission to give food to voluntary recipients.

On Friday, TFTP reported on a new law in Kansas—which appears to be a trend across the country—that allows police to fine and even arrest people not for feeding the homeless but for simply giving them money.

Sadly, the state’s endless desire to generate revenue and oppress rights has led to a system which requires permits for just about every activity not just feeding the homeless. This permitting process acts as a stranglehold on those trying to make a living—keeping them in a perpetual state of poverty.

In May, the Alameda County Sheriff’s department posted a photo of a deputy arresting a man for selling fruits and vegetables on the roadside and attempted to justify the arrest. When people read the department’s justification, they lashed out — peacefully — to let them know what they were doing is wrong.

In June, a 38-year-old homeless man was attempting to earn some honest money by providing a much-desired service of bicycle repair to the residents of Kennewick, Washington when he was threatened with extortion and arrest by the local police department, which effectively ended his enterprise.

After the Kennewick Police Department threatened the homeless man and prevented him from making a living, they took to Facebook to shamelessly brag about it. The man was told that while it was illegal for him to fix bicycles, he could certainly beg for money.

  1. The homeless need to be retrained in a trade and get a job, those disabled get welfare anyway and housing. No excuse for street bums in 2017. Some need to be in mental health group homes. Otherwise they leave trash and other unsanitary debris in pubic areas, and are a nuisance for businesses like in Portland, Ore. Some caused the Calif. fires by leaving open fires for cooking int he woods.

    • There would be no homeless without the state.
      Government seizing houses created for the homeless by charities and demolishing them, why?
      There are lots of buildings that the homeless could live in with the permission of the property owner, government forbids this, why?
      Government, through regulations and zoning drives the cost of accomodation upwards by orders of magnitude, and then makes it illegal for poor people to share rooms, claiming it’s a ‘fire hazard’
      The result is people freezing to death on the street, worsened by making it illegal to wear blankets, because if we let them share rooms, they might spontaneously combust…
      The sick ‘humans’ responsible for these ordinances, and for enforcing them, should simply be taken down to send a message, simple as that.
      No excuses you say?
      Guess who’s sick of excuses? people feeding the homeless and defending their right to do so with guns.
      No more excuses, it’s time for action.

      • I totally agree. People have to push back against the state/city etc. Do not comply and be verbal when your city moves to enact such a law. This is not just happening in U.S., l live in a major Canadian city that enacted this law and I can tell you that many of us ignore it. This is neo-liberal policy and the mayor who put the law in place, was recently voted out.

    • Wow! Aren’t you the empathic one. Atually you are a very selfish person. Sad.

    • California fires were done with DEW weapons to get those people out of there for Agenda 2030 building.

  2. on the contrary, it was intimidation. be glad the government did not arrest you and confiscate your AR’15’s.

    after all, the poor are lazy who don’t take personal responsibility, their lives aren’t worth your fake show of force.

    • Hey copsucking cuck,
      Your right to be afraid. Your are powerless to stop this. It’s only a matter of time before some pigs get ventilated while trying to torture and murder the homeless, or stopping good people from helping them. When that happens, there will be an outpouring of public support for those responsible, and any charges will be dismissed. If the prosecutors know what’s good for them…

      Yes, it WAS intimidation, from free citizens against pigscum, and it worked! Suck it.

      Every day people hate you pigscum more. Everyday people step closer to the inevitable.

      Now that people realize that force works against force, the days of tyranny are numbered.

      You say the lives of the homeless are worthless? As if the worth of a persons life can be measured by what they own. Our lives are measured by what we do. The homeless have harmed no one. Guess who does? pigscum cops, that’s who, guess who’s lives are worth less than dogshit? why murdering, raping pigsscum cops of course 🙂

      Hatred of defencless innocent humans, check. Psycopathy and lack of empathy, check, pig detected!

      Take your propaganda somewhere else pig. Just know that we citizens are watching you…

    • Like most who wear state-issued costumes, they’re probably quite frightened at the prospect of going toe-to-toe with people who aren’t intimidated by their supposed authority.

  3. Good for you doing the morally right thing and promoting the morally right thing in the season when they are most vulnerable. A lot of people think that they deserve whatever comes to those that have it hard but they should count their blessings they’ve never had it so hard. It could happen to any of us and they should be so fortunate that we look out for each other as brothers and sisters.

  4. Wow….and a Merry Christmas to all…..

  5. I’m happy to see people pushing back against the tide of permits for living. TPTB have been steadily, stealthily, pushing permits for every conceivable activity. They have pushed too far, and people are FINALLY beginning to push back.

    We the People need to push back on most permits, which have been justified as being “for our safety” but are actually just mechanisms of control and impoverishment of the populace, as the article eloquently mentions.

    IF we are to be a free people, then governments are overstepping their charters by requiring permits (governmental permission slips) for natural activities. I hope to see this become a trend and keep the focus on the humanity of it all: humans helping humans live human lives without permission from, nor interference from, corporations (which all US governmental entities are).

    I’m very glad the video included a brief plug for FIJA, too. Because, when humans are arrested for helping humans live human lives, it’s time for jury nullification of these immoral laws. Consider getting on a jury; and definitely spread the word about jury nullification and FIJA.

  6. It’s amazing! we have three guys that have more money than over 50% of Americans, we have a government that gives our tax dollars in the billions to Israel and Saudi Arabia, we have a MIC that costs us over 50% of our tax dollars (with no threat on our border’s), we have politicians becoming millionaires, we have corruption from the top down, and yet we can’t feed our hungry and shelter our homeless. As a nation we are so uncivilized….

  7. Pushing back against tyranny is the only answer!

  8. Dallas, TX… A Tale of 2 Cities, for sure.
