Ya'll come!!! Mobile, Alabama cops love homeless people

    • Sloan Bashinsky Gosh, don't show this to the Key West Police Department? The reader comments under the article are not terribly kind to these two officers. 
      • Victor Clarke Don’t KW have a whole new squad of “One Human Family” police officers now ?
      • Sloan Bashinsky Yeah? Been away from KW since before Thanksgiving 2018, not privy to such matters, but I did hear from my homeless lady friend the other day that she and her homeless boyfriend both got camping ordinance violations citations from KWPD officers for sleeping on a blanket. Same outcome if sleeping on flattened cardboard box. I spent many nights in 2001 sleeping in a Fleming Street doorway on a flattened cardboard box. After 9/11, KWPD didn't allow it. As if I was a terrorist? Maybe somebody needs to modify Revelation in the New Testament, to warn Jesus not to come back homeless, it ain't fashionable no more.

      • Victor Clarke Jesus ain’t welcome here anymore

        No photo description available.

      • Sloan Bashinsky I especially enjoyed this reader comment:


        BBS Commodore
        When these people read A Christmas Carol and Scrooge suggests that society would be better off letting the poor people die rather than extending a helping hand, do they nod and think “now here’s a guy who really gets it!”

        And this one:

        Matthew 25:

        40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

        41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

        42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

        43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
      • Victor Clarke This was America .....

        "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore."

      • Image may contain: one or more people
      • Victor Clarke Send Them back to their “Shithole” Countries
      • Sloan Bashinsky You wandered onto a different topic.
      • Victor Clarke No .....The huddled masses yearning to be free the wretched refuse of teeming shores ......are/were Homeless !!!!!
      • Sloan Bashinsky Oops. Yet, those homeless people were/are immigrants looking to start new lives, including finding a place to live inside and getting a job and blending into American society and pursuing life, liberty and happiness. The many homeless people I have known were headed downward, or had already gotten there. They seemed more like what Jesus referred to in the parable of the sheep and the goats, yet perhaps they were even more down and out, in the main. Key West likes to give homeless people a one-way Greyhound ticket to the mainland, and there is a steady revolving population of homeless people in the nearby county jail. 

    Alabama cops gloat over "quilt" made from cardboard signs confiscated from homeless people over Christmas

    In this photo posted to Facebook, two police officers from Mobile, Alabama pose with a "quilt" made from cardboard signs confiscated from homeless people in the area over the Christmas break.
    “Wanna wish everybody in the 4th precinct a Merry Christmas, especially our captain," says the caption to the posting. “Hope you enjoy our homeless quilt. Sincerely Panhandler patrol.”
    Al.com names the two grinning officers as Preston McGraw and Alexandre Olivier, and points out that the photo was taken in a police department office. It was first posted to Officer McGraw's page, but has been shared widely since.
    Mobile Police Department has not responded to a request for comment. AL.com also emailed every city council member for comment. No one has yet responded.
    Since being posted online the image has been shared more than 10,000 times and has over 3,000 comments. Many comments claim the image to be in poor taste, especially during the holiday season.
    God Bless. God Bless.
