There is a distinct trend occurring in US states that is bound to continue — states are separating into bastions of freedom or dark wells of tyranny. The same is true of individual cities; add the Big Apple to that latter category.
Apparently, now New York City has food police. No, really.
In a video sent to The Free Thought Project in recent days, which was initially posted on the Facebook page of Gary Schlesinger of Brooklyn, trash collectors in New York City are being ordered by a city police officer to confiscate dozens of cases of fruits and vegetables and toss them into the back of a trash truck.
According to Schlesinger, “NYC [is] cracking down on fruit stores that put out merchandise more [than] 4 feet from the store.”
Yes, that’s right. Cops are ordering otherwise perfectly good food — food that could feed scores of hungry people in the city — thrown away for improper display.
