An Atlanta store went out of business.
Before it closed, it called a local church. Did the church want the store’s inventory to give away to the poor? Sure, someone at the church said. But no one showed up to haul it away.
So, the church offered the food for free to the public. The sheriff showed up. He said that it was not theirs to give.
There was already a crowd to collect the food. So, to keep order, the authorities tossed all of it in a dumpster — not just food.
This made a great TV news story.
This is bureaucracy run wild. This is America today. It will not stop until the governments go bankrupt.
