Louisiana Forces Homeless Shelter to Destroy $8,000 Worth of Deer Meat:
Louisiana’s State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because it was donated from a hunter organization.
KTBS-TV reports that the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission lost 1,600 pounds of venison because the state’s Health Department doesn’t recognize Hunters for the Hungry, an organization that allows hunters to donate any extra game to charity.
“We didn’t find anything wrong with it,” Rev. Henry Martin told KTBS. “It was processed correctly, it was packaged correctly.”
My Commentary: Statists often make the false claim that charity for the homeless is simply “too rare to be reliable,” while quickly jumping to the non-sequitur logical fallacy that society then “needs” government programs to “care” for such individuals (AKA loathe, criminalize, abuse and rob them via State employees, while the public subsists on a steady diet of “out of sight, out of mind”). Yet, almost NONE of these sadly misinformed individuals have ever even been homeless – and, are just talking out of their asses on a very important, real life issue, with the hope that no one will call them out on their bluff, or that others are just as ignorant as they are! And, while these wanna-be do-gooders are busy worshiping the State, relishing in the callous, apathetic, hands-off, homeless-ignoring, false charity that comes with their dutiful payment of “taxes,” they seem to have forgotten one important fact: there IS one thing that the government HATES more than homeless and poor people, and that is: COMPETITION! The State literally NEEDS to be NEEDED by the public, or else, it risks becoming OBSOLETE! Therefore, government ALWAYS finds new and creative ways to make our legitimate efforts to help others in need into criminal activity that must be prevented at all costs. And, whether it be through de facto means, such as lining the path to REAL assistance for those in need with massive levels of bureaucratic red tape, or through outright cold-hearted bans on helping those without shelter under the guise of “safety,” the proof is always in the pudding! Never forget that “by their fruit, you WILL know them”!
My condolences to “Hunters for the Homeless,” who donated 1,600 pounds of freshly-packaged deer meat, with the intent that it would go to those in need. And, shame of the state of Louisiana for seizing and destroying their amazing contributions, instead of at least returning what had been offered – an act that displayed a complete lack of common sense.
Be sure to read the following article, as well, to understand that homeless individuals are seen as nothing more than unwanted animals by many major cities in the US:

While you’re at it, look up the “vagrancy” laws on the books in your local community to understand exactly how the State views homelessness!
I have many more articles I could share on this topic, for those interested, but as you can see, even within those which I’ve provided above: coercion begets coercion, and apathy begets apathy. Cause and effect cannot be magically suspended, as if the laws of nature really only represent a “belief” system!
