WATCH: Florida Cops Arrest Seven Volunteers for Feeding Homeless

Which requires an insurance policy.

But Food Not Bombs has served food in the same park more than 100 times without problems, according to [__cltampa.com__](http://www.cltampa.com/news-views/local-news/article/20848403/tampa-activists-arrested-for-feeding-the-homeless).

Local critics suggest officials are cracking down on the practice due to several sporting events being hosted by the city this week including the College Football Playoff National Championship, which will be played Monday at Raymond James Stadium between the Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide.

So they would rather not have the less fortunate gathered in highly visible places for their visiting guests.

Activists with Food Not Bombs were warned earlier in the week, so they knew their actions were illegal.

They fed the homeless anyway.

Some of the activists arrested were still wearing plastic gloves they use for sanitary purposes to serve the food.

When police arrived, they gave the activists three minutes to stop serving food to the needy.

Video taken by someone at the event shows some volunteers ignored the threats and continued serving food, even as their fellow volunteers were being arrested.

“Please help yourselves,” one says to his comrades who are still serving food just before they are placed in cuffs.

Tampa cops arrested one man who reached for a bagel to snack on.

After being arrested, the group sent an email to the press Saturday night stating it “has no plans to stop sharing food with the homeless and hungry and will continue to defy unjust laws that criminalize compassion and mutual aid.”

Food Not Bombs plans on gathering in the same location to feed the homeless again at 8 a.m. this Tuesday.

“We intend to expose the city’s cruelty in the face of thousands in our community who are struggling with issues of food insecurity, mental and medical health issues, poverty, and homelessness,” a spokesperson for Food Not Bombs wrote in an email.

“If the city will not address these problems, the least they can do is not get in the way and stop others from addressing these needs. Compassion should never be criminalized.”

Tampa Bay police arrested the activists around the same time a concert associated with the College Football National Championship was taking place.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
