So what if they couldn't "legally" let the hungry citizens take the food out of the trash? Post a sign saying "No Dumpster Diving", wag your finger and go get your donuts.
How many violent crimes could have been attended to by the 10-20 cops who just stood around a dumpster?
The 'riot' that the police feared was the riot they almost caused by this non-nonsensical BS. I wonder if the cops would have started the pepper spray and skull-cracking if those people were just hungry enough to go for that food anyway. Just how badly did they want to keep this admitted garbage out of those hungry peoples' mouths?
