Feeding homeless outlawed in Las Vegas

You can gamble every cent you and your family have away on games of chance, pay for any kind of sex your little heart desires, quell the ever-lasting American gluttony for tons of different urges but fuck if we're going allow you to lend a helping hand to another human being. There's just some things you don't do.

If someone looks like he could use a meal, be warned: Giving him a sandwich in a Las Vegas park could land you in jail.

What you in for?

The Las Vegas City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday that bans providing food or meals to the indigent for free or a nominal fee in parks.'s legal to charge them a fortune?

The measure is an attempt to stop so-called "mobile soup kitchens" from operating in parks, where residents say they attract the homeless and render the city facilities unusable by families.

Yeah, cause that's what's wrong with the world. You know what this world needs? A new dominant species.
