Phoenix Christians Forbidden to Give Out Free Water

On a day in the Valley when temperatures reached 112 degrees, a group of Christians were handing out cold water for free and offering to engage in religious conversation when they were approached by a “Neighborhood Preservation Inspector” who told them they could not give out water without a permit.

While many will consider this an attack on their religious expression, and it was, I think the issue is broader than that. A short segue:

Before I really looked into it, I was under the impression that the Chinese Communist Party persecuted Christians because they hated Christianity. Since the CCP is officially atheist, I figured that was a good enough explanation. They also persecuted other religions in China. But once I started looking into it, I realized that there are official Christian churches in China authorized by the Chinese government with church leaders on the government payroll (e.g., China Christian Council, the Three-Self Patriotic Movement, etc.). It’s not so much that the CCP wants to eliminate Christianity. They want to eliminate any religion or even social group (like the barely religious fitness club Falun Gong) which refuses to integrate itself under the already established government hierarchy. They don’t care if you worship other gods, as long as you worship the State first and foremost.

It doesn’t seem to connect, but the situation here in America is similar and becoming more so. As trivial as the situation in Phoenix seems, other similar reports are popping up around the country. A voluntary group in San Francisco (Food Not Bombs) has been harassed multiple times by police for feeding the homeless without a permit. Some of its members have been arrested for doing no more than an “underground” act of charity.

As the civil government becomes more socialistic, voluntary charity may very well become entirely illegal. After all, a top-down system  doesn’t work unless everybody is fully committed—not “distracted” by their own ideas of what’s good for their neighbor or themselves. We are seeing this transition already, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Today, most churches are applying for 501(c)3 status (effectively becoming a creature within the government hierarchy). Tomorrow, perhaps, we’ll have our own version of the Three-Self “Patriotic” Church.

  1. It boils down to a control issue. Since government at whatever level tends to think that it’s God Almighty then by definition it thinks that it should control everything. It’s enough to make a maggot puke to see bureaucrats and politicians who can’t find their butts with both hands and a road map to guide them try to run everyones lives for them.

  2. Mathis you are totally right . control control control > This is what the liberals . /Communist Socialist / Marxist Fascist etc need to do to take what ( control ) Osama Bama the non American fake phony illegal alien criminal from Kenya is trying to do > exactly that > however > now thousands and thousands daily have come to their senses and are leaving their party // they do not want to destroy their country . ! God Bless America

    • And that’s the one with the fat, gay, ugly, dumb gorilla wife who will put y all in FEMA interment camps. We. I miles are finally jolly. We will win. Obama is you can be dictator for life. But hey, we don’t like fascist….totally different philosophy. Kinda fits conservative right wing guys more. So be nice in your labels.

  3. It appears that this whole world is being run by a bunch of lunitics.

    I wonder what the hell these people would do to you if you just ignore them and continue to hand out the water? are they going to arrest you or execute you?
    I think we should tell them to go to HELL and see how far they will go.

  4. No One has The Right To Say & Tell people are forbiDden to give free what to help those that are thirsty. Its God’s Way & The American way To Help Your Fellow Man. Ignore Those That Are Evil. Do what Is Righr To Give free Water To Those That Are Thirsty Is What Would Want Good Christian People To Do For Humanity In America. To Hell With Inhumane Law. Obey God’s Laws Help Your Fellow Man Is What God Wants Christian People To Do To Give Out Free Water. Screwed Thy Enemies That Are Telling US Not to give Free Water. Do God’s Will & You will Be Rewarded In Heaven For Helping Your Fellow Is The Humane Right Thing To Do As Good Christians In America. To Hell To Those People That Are Evil. God will Judged Them & Send Them all To Hell. God Day Of Judgement Is Coming Soon At The End Of This Year Around The World to Destroy The Evil Worldwide.

  5. What IS going on in Phoenix?! First they arrest a man holding a Bible study in his home and now no one is allowed to give free water?

    • and don’t forget the spin that has been put on and the hysteria created over the illegals here. These people were quietly working, sending their kids to school, not on welfare. They were also Christians. A fact often overlooked. They did not want to come illegally. They came because our government will not allow them to come in, our government keeps them in Mexico where their government will not allow them to work because it wants them to starve. Meanwhile our government CREATES papers for undocumented Muslims to come in by the thousands, then totally supports all their expenses for three years after they get here. How fair is that???
      I am not in favor of breaking the law. I just think that as a Christian parent, sitting and doing nothing while your children starve to death vs crossing a few miles of desert where you can get a job and feed, house and clothe them is a no brainer. If I was faced with that choice, I would get my hungry babies here first, worry about laws later.

    • Not to illegals ,it only encourages them and they are breaking the law helping them ! Look at it this way ,we dont allow the illegal feeding of ducks,geese, or other varmits .Its time to give unto Ceasar what is his.

  6. This is disgusting – what’s the purpose of a permit other than paying money to the City of Phoenix? In downtown Chicago all sorts of charities stand on the street corner and hand out water when it’s really hot – will they be next??!! This is more than next to evil.

  7. Strap up, give away the water, refuse to be arrested, demand that “probable cause” be shown according to the Constitution.

  8. Suppose you ran a food cart in Phoenix and the way you supported your family was by selling water, beverages, hot dogs and snacks. Then along comes a Christian group in the name of Jesus giving away free food and water, running you out of business. Now you’re on food stamps and welfare, and the very Christians who ran you out of business complain about how lazy you are living off the government.

    • to BIBLEGEEK how ridiculous ! How can one sell anything to a person who can not pay ? You must pay or you don’t get it. Regrettably, there are those who can not pay.

    • if a few believers giving away bottled water to some random bystanders is enough to break a food cart, they were deep in trouble already and just didn’t know it. Handy to have some big-hearted christians ready to hand to blame for their failure. No, this is about government as saviour, and ALL good things MYST come through government, or at least, with the (paid for) approval of government. Lemme guess, if that had been a group of mozlems passing out water for free. they’d get a pass…. or a free permit.

  9. The problem is the government has no fear of Christians…We don’t fight back! Now, if the folks involved had been muslims…the city would not have dared to stop them, why? people are scared of mulims! We need to think a little less like saints and a lot more like crusaders…Deus Vult!

    • Maybe people should begin singing the following again. Many churches no longer allow it because of the reference to war and its reference to Christians being soldiers.
      Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
      With the cross of Jesus going on before.
      Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
      Forward into battle see His banners go! Refrain:
      Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
      With the cross of Jesus going on before.At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
      On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
      Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
      Brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
      Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
      We are not divided, all one body we,
      One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
      But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
      Gates of hell can never ’gainst that church prevail;
      We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
      Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
      Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
      This through countless ages men and angels sing.

  10. This may simply be a case of discouraging loitering and homeless people from being attracted to the area. After all, doesn’t our socialist government provide shelters for them so that we don’t have to bump into them on the street.

  11. Ted Rall said, during the Katrina debacle, that the people in Louisiana shouldn’t have had to rely on private charities for their relief. It should have been all government, all the time.

    Rall’s an idiot and a statist socialist, but I repeat myself.

    Mr. O’bama, where are the Jobs?

    • We see where depending on the government got the people effected by Katrina. The only one who showed any common sense was a 17 year old, who hot wired a bus, loaded it up with people then drove to Houston, TX.

      Mayor Ray Nagan, decided in his infinite wisdom (for those who did stay) to disarm them so they could not protect themselves! How he was re-elected is beyond me.

      If the government is the answer – you asked the wrong question. Learn to depend on yourself instead of waiting for someone else (the government) to take care of things.

  12. There are just three things that are the political time bombs of the modern age? They are water, tillable land and energy. Water and land are absolutes to grow food and modern energy sources are needed for production of anything at any scale larger than a personal or tribal level. Our federal government is in the process of locking up total control in all these areas.
    Control is not just the physical control of land, water or energy. Control can be exercised through availability, cost, taxation, regulation or outright denial. All of these control factors have been used, are presently being used or will be used in the future. The control in many cases is so subtle or gradual that we don’t even realize it is happening. Often the control is masked as something necessary to protect something or someone to make it more acceptable.

    “Necessity, it is said, is the plea for every infringement of human Liberty; it is the argument of tyrants and the creed of slaves.”
    William Penn

  13. Once again our godless, uncaring, anti-christian government is declaring war on the good, caring people of this country. To deny private citizens the right to help other citizens who are in need is un-American and communistic in origin. It is our God-ordained duty and responsibility to take care of the poor and needy in our nation. But godless heathenistic idiots want to make it a crime to help our fellow man unless they can dictate the terms of that help, just like any other socialist regime, and that you must pay through the nose for the privilege. And the fee for the government privilege to help the needy will be so outrageous that we can not afford it, According to our ignorant self-serving politicians and law enforcement we are to be as cold-blooded, heartless, inconsiderate, and uncaring towards our fellow man as they are.

  14. This same tactic is being forwarded by the Houston City Council (promoted by the mayor). Requiring all groups providing meals at no or a nominal charge to be licensed by the City (and scrutinized by the City Health department). The lofty goal is to make sure that food is handled correctly and that certain standards are applied in food handling. The true reason for this is to place a level of control over non-profit and religious groups who provide these type of services. This level of control only places additional “service” requirement on a governmental body that already cannot keep up with its work load as it is. (I got food poisoning this week from a chain food restaurant, so there is no way that the health department can remove all cases of health problems.) It also increases costs for groups that actually service the poor and needy–causing a reduction in the services rendered. Shame on the cities who are placing road blocks to humanitarian acts!

  15. It is a “POWER Thing” these people believe they have the right to CONTROL ever breathing moment of everyone’s life. We have multiple generations that the “Common Sense Gene” is no longer active or part of their DNA and they are easily drawn into becoming a control freak.. It is interesting that these same people will fight you tooth & nail when you try to control them!!!

  16. Why doesn’t Governor Brewer step in on this nonsense? I don’t think she would approve of such Gestapo tactics! This doesn’t sound like the Arizona we’ve been hearing about as of late.

  17. This is why I hold my bible dear and near to me.. I stopped going to church when the Catholic priests started liking little boys.. You know, around the scandal time.. I have faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, not the churches, not the government…

    Our Father, who art in heaven hallowed be thy name.. It is to him who I owe my life for giving me life and continually allow me to wake up in the morning, and go to bed at night peacefully and freely..

    the only way to heaven is through the son, Jesus Christ.. Get to know him.. the more I do, the better I feel!

    God gave us free will.. not chains from the government!!!!!
    Use your free will and reclaim America before God says it is too late!!!

    God, please forgive us for our mortal sins, and watch over us and please come back to the United States Of America and save us from ourselves.. Amen…

    does that make me a terrorist???? so what, I live by God’s 10 commandments not by man’s law…(i know, he gave man the power to create laws,,,but the more they are unjust the more I get closer to those 10 beautiful commandments)

    • I encourage you to seek out a Bible-based church….no man is an island and God calls us to fellowship….we do not grow in the Lord by ourselves..each one of us is a cracked pot of some kind or other and we need each other to stand strong in these Last Days!

    • If some bakers put poison in their bread, should we believe that bread in not good food ? We must eliminate those who poison the bread. We all regret what several so called Catholic priests did. Will we stop drinking beer or alcohol because some people get drunk. We must strongly object to priests who are a danger. This does not take away that the great majority of priests work for the good of people, We should strengthen them, not abandon them. If we work more with them, our help may be a help for a priest, Don’t we all appreciate some help ? Is it wise to say “I am better than him ?” Or should I say “I must be strong not to fall also”.

  18. Yea we Commies have been known for years to hate free water. And yea, y know how the godless Stalin bnned any water and put guys who wanted water in a gulag. Thought y people would know that. Guess y are new to Communist theory. Maybe y should learn some more. Yes we so hate Christians that we will let them die in the desert. So when Obama gets elcted y will be in the FEMA interment camps run by new and old Black panthers who will play endless loops of 60 commie protest singers and Michelle Obama, the fat, ugly, gay. Gorilla wife will be supplying strictly veggie food. So be very very scared. I’m the one in charge of the Dead People for Obama vote. We are ready. Have photo I’d for all dead people. HAHAHA

  19. The author of this article Mr. Minkoff wrote ” Today, most churches are applying for 501(c)3 status (effectively becoming a creature within the government hierarchy).” I am surprised that not more is being said about this! The water thing is sad, but ultimately, almost a non-issue as the city WILL Settle and this group WILL be allowed to share free water and talk about the “living water of Christ and how we can never thirst again”. The whole 501(c)3 issue is a double edged sword. IF you accept it you can NOT discuss political candidates and many other issues because the government can threaten you with the loss of money by removing your tax exempt status etc. That is just ONE reason why my family refused to pursue tax exempt status for our family ministry Truth Ministries. NO one but God tells me what I can talk about! http://www.kjv-truth-ministries.org

    • How can believers in “Separation of Church and State” allow the State to tax the Church? Isn’t the 501C designation just the State’s official acknowledgement of that fact and NOT, as you imply, a bribe for the Church to stop playing their role to their members in guiding them to guide the State, as is their duty?
      Does not change the nature of the relationship. Give unto Caesar what is Caesars, give unto God what is God’s.

      • I don’t imply or in any other way assert that tax exempt status is bribery. I believe that it can be and often IS used to DRASTICALLY restrict the influence of Religious groups upon their memberships. From the wikipedia page on 501(c)3 status ” The basic requirement of getting tax exempt status is that the organization is specifically limited in powers to purposes that the IRS classifies as tax exempt purposes….Political activity: Section 501(c)(3) organizations are subject to limits or absolute prohibitions on engaging in political activities and risk loss of status as tax exempt status if violated.” I think it is rather too simplistic to imagine that government had ANY interest in protecting Churches from taxation…..

        • I understand your concerns. Truly I do and I have argued as you do. But, if I try to come at this from a bureaucratic viewpoint, I might say,
          “You know, if I don’t put down in writing precisely what is tax exempt, then everyone would call themselves a Church (Many Christians already are doing that these days when they say they are non-denominational)), and therefor, they do not have to pay income taxes.”

          A Church is a Church, no matter what the Feds call it.

          If the Feds want to look at it in secular terms, such as
          “This is just an association of citizens, excercising their Constitutional right of association, who have already paid their taxes, and are using their after-tax dollars to join this non-profit club””, then let them at it.

          I believe that the Churchs only have to remember that they are a Church, and the Feds need to treat them appropriately. I would not advise a Church to fill out their forms, but I would expect the Feds to respect their religious beliefs by calling them a 501c or anything else which makes THEM happy.

          • The Church isn’t tax-exempt. She’s tax-immune. Churches have never been and are not required to pay taxes in the United States with or without 501(c)3 recognition. Most churches get tax-exempt status for convenience without realizing the “foot-in-the-door” strings attached.

    • Good for you! Maybe, just maybe, others will follow your lead. A lot of “religious organizations” fear losing their “tax exempt status.” I’m pretty sure that if they’d get rid of that “burden” their followers would be much better off.

      • I just know that it is IMPOSSIBLE to separate my faith and Christian worldview from politics and I didn’t want the government interfering with my free speech on same…

  20. this actually began when government took upon itself the “right” to license ministers. If you listen to weddings at some point the minister presents his credentials in order to perform that marriage, and they are according to the State, not God.. That opened a door. Since then we have government regulation of churches as either tax exempt or not. The ministry is trained at schools which often use government money to exist, and thus must reflect the government standards, gays in the clergy, etc, rather than Biblical standards. Secularization of the churches by the state has been going on for a long time. The vehicle they use to get the control is money. Unless and until the various churches divorce themselves from government money, there will always be some level of government control.

    • Exactly, mine is a Sacrament of Marriage and I have a CERTIFICATE from my Church attesting to that fact, NOT a marriage LICENSE from the State.

      Just like we traded our “let no man OR JUDGE put asunder”, so have we recently traded in our Second Amendment rights for th false security of Concealed carry PERMITS from the State who is LICENSING your right to keep and BEAR ARMS (as Dennys so sweetly put it this last 4th of July) back to you.

  21. I have dealt with this issue several times. Persons in an area where I once lived, couldn’t be given a hot cup of soup, or any kind of food that was prepared by an individual who wanted to give them food because they were hungry. However, you can donate food to the local food bank, and it can then be distributed to these same hungry people who will only get this handout once a month, by an agency, which requires very much personal information in order to qualify. In other words, this person who slept in the field last night can’t get food today without begging for it. Many people would love to feed the poor in their own area, but are banned from doing this. You can also donate to a Charity which will give a person a meal once a day, and also receive a tax credit for your donation. This however seems like it isn’t Charity at all, and I would much rather hand out a cup of soup with a blessing attached to the soul which needs it. You can’t live by bread alone which is stated in God’s word.

  22. What is with Phoenix it seemed like all those bizarre anti-humanitarian and religious bull is totally out of hand. What makes people behave like this is that the sun, the temperature, or maybe they’re just stupid.

  23. Power,
    true power, happens when parity exists between FORCE and
    WISDOM. History, a fair witness, has recorded times
    mankind has flipped this coin and its resulting wisdom of “Heads I
    win, Tails you loose.” Once again the world is witnessing another
    flip.

    Note: Failure doesn’t exist, anywhere,
    only lack of follow through.

    Note: Wisdom’s power can be found in
    Force’s weakness.

    Criminals,
    operating like politicians, have “withholds.” These are crimes
    committed, guarded secrets, never to be revealed. Criminals
    eventually withdraw from his/her relationships. Why? Bottom
    line…they are basically good, they want to stop hurting. Unable to
    stop, they eventually loose sight of consequence, and
    halfheartedly follow through.

    The
    elite empower these criminal politicians in an effort to perpetuate
    their crimes while protecting their old. The result is a downward
    dwindling spiral. They are being eaten alive by there own withholds,
    suffering blindness, suffering various betrayals, the consequent loss
    of parity. Our enslavement will only accelerate their pain. There
    is no such thing as bottom!

    While
    government monopolizes force, it unknowingly monopolizes the space
    between it and wisdom. The elite, while basically good, will
    succumb in this fight against wisdom and self. Our job is easy,
    really, wisdom has already been sifted from an earlier chaotic flip
    of the coin, we have the Constitution. We are not lost. We
    are not confused. The elite are both.
    Really…flourish and prosper people!

  24. This is one time this Alaskan Christian wishes I were in Arizzona. I would have cherished the opprtunity to follow Christ’s example, right to prison if need be to help those around me in need. permitt, schmermitt.
    In fact if one reads ACTS in it’s entirety you will see that the apostles regulary were the cause of public disturbance. Christian means little Christ. Eph 5;1 tells us to be imitators of God. I’d say pass out the water no matter what this Govt Beurocat says.

  25. “Neighborhood Preservation Inspector”! I have to love it, if nothing else the doofus liberals are creative. I’ ll have to find out if we have one of those in the formerly free state of Maryland. And here I thought Arizona was a reasonable state especially with my hero Sheriff Joe living there. Or maybe it is just the leftist city of Phoenix.

  26. WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

    “Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

    While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to “the vast right-wing conspiracy.”

    For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

    Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and his Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

    “A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”

    Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

    creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
    satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
    augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
    rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

    “The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

  27. How low have we sunk as a nation? We can’t give water to people in triple digit temperatures. We can’t give food to the hungry. Where is the milk of human kindness?
    Illegal aliens run over the border in droves and the government won’t enforce the law. However, I can get in trouble for handing out water or food for free to the needy.
    You need identification to prove that you are old enough to buy liquor or cigarettes, but, in most states you don’t need identification to vote.
    Criminals run around playing shoot ’em up, and the government wants to take away guns and ammo from the law abiding.
    What’s wrong with this picture?

    • Everything is wrong with this picture. The government wants everyone dependent on them instead of “Religious Charities” or other organizations. Being independent is a threat to them since you are harder to control.

  28. Permits are about the money. Here in Bryan, TX a health permit costs $450 a year. When I first moved to Bryan in 2006 and had to apply for a health permit for my employer it was only $175 a year. The same reason why they say a kid wanting to sell kool-aid needs a permit and a tax id. It’s about the money. Greed, greed and more greed.

    • I agree with you, however, permits are for vendors. If you are helping in the street, what is the difference if someone comes to your home for help? You already need a marriage license, so therefore they are already in your bedroom. I mean if a family member or a friend comes to your house and is hungry and you feed him/her will you need a permit? Where does it end?

  29. GOOD! Those stupid gawd damned xtians are aiding and abetting CRIMINALS! THEY, themselves, are criminals for helping them! Those idiots christling lemmings should be deported to their beloved turd world sh*thole Me-hee-co and their citizenship revoked!

  30. Like most large cities in America, Stanton is a Democrat. As with all Democratically controlled cities, it is in the crapper. 🙁
    With Stanton you get lots of lip service about how wonderful things are, and what great job he is doing, when the facts are much different. South Phoenix, is just removed from a war zone and most of the violence in the area is simply overlooked. Why should it be reported, the police are often a major part of the corruption in the South Mountain district, and do not look favorably on being exposed!
    By having his goons do things like this, it keeps much of the focus off of the serious problems going on in the police and city government offices. It also keeps the focus on the “wonderful” programs being run by the city. They hate competition for the spotlight, especially when their program cost everyone a bunch of money, and the faith based programs are free to everyone and do a better job of helping!

  31. Amazing. A stray cat entered my yard the other day. I gave it a little food and some water. Am I under arrest? Oh, wait it’s alright to give an animal water but not to a fellow human. Have we really become that twisted.

  32. Phoenix, Arizona? I was wondering if this has anyhing to do with the illegal immagration problem that Arizona does not want to be supporting… Giving illegals water maybe viewed as making the problem worse, so the State of Arizona figures that the people need a permit for that.. Feds won’t ship illegals back, so if the illegals die of thirst out in the heat, then the problem solves itself!

  33. I live in phoenix …. never heard of this, and have to question the source. I work for a retailer, and we give out water all the time, when the temps hit 110+, and we have never been harassed about it. Granted we aren’t touting our beliefs for the water, but we have never been given problems for handing out water on a hot day, to anyone who walks into the store. The only time I think this might happen, is if the Christians were handing out glasses of water, not bottled and sealed containers, as we do. That technically could get into health codes if handing out glasses of water.

    • You have a retail space. They were on the street. You have a business license presumably and therefore a permit to do all sorts of things within your store. By the way, the story says they were handing out sealed bottles of water.

  34. What is a “Neighborhood Preservation Inspector?” Likely some busy body who needs a lesson taught to them.

    Keep giving out the water. Let them get physical on you and then we have them – can’t wait for that to make to the media.

    What a joke this city appears to be.
