Two more arrests -- and a new strategy

Two more activists affiliated with Orlando Food Not Bombs were arrested yesterday at Lake Eola Park, bringing the total to 27.

But the city tried a new approach, issuing trespass warnings immediately after the two began hauling dishware and food into the park. OPD Officer Rich Ruth said it was obvious that they “intended” to violate the large-group feeding ordinance.

Then they were cuffed quickly after the food-sharing began, rather than plainclothes police waiting to affirm that they fed 25 individuals.
