…where feeding poor homeless people will be swiftly punished with jail.

One of the main effects of our increasingly draconian security/entitlement state is that normal, healthy mediating institutions such as the Church and local charities get shoved out and the state tries to horn in and do the work of dealing with those suffering from our proliferating social pathologies. This generally boils down to a) jail and b) throwing money at them. Meanwhile, the people closest to the problem and best equipped to help are treated by the state as competitors and enemies of the state. So it’s jail for them too.
