The F.O.R. Food Bank, Maricopa, Arizona. . . .“Human” ugliness shows its’ face again.



I have observed some of the best and worst of human nature at this particular food bank. I believe the efforts of Wendy Webb and the volunteers are noble, however, an ugly element of human nature shows itself on a regular basis.

I found it odd how many poor needy people have jobs, cell phones and laptops. They also can afford to drive late model Expeditions, SUV’s and Mustangs. One of the cashiers from Fry’s Marketplace was even there getting food. Apparently, Fry’s doesn’t pay its’ employees enough for them to eat.

I’m also rather pissed off that people are trying to abuse the gift of food by attempting to cheat the system. I have on numerous occasions, observed people using “cheat sheets” to sign up multiple names on the roster. A person cannot stoop much lower than that. Some of these “so-called people” must think that they were too “entitled” to get in line. Either that, or they didn’t understand the simple concept that the line forms at the rear. That alone created lots of friction.

Having seen this problem mushroom with each week and month, I decided to keep my trusty Sig Sauer P-226 9mm strapped on my thigh in the event a “Somali-style” food riot erupted. I believe that some form of security is needed to protect the public. I consider myself well protected. I really don’t want to be a “warden” here.

To whom it may concern,
 
A serious public safety threat exists every Monday morning between the hours of 8:00-11:00AM at the F.O.R. Food Bank on 19235 Gunsmoke. Large crowds of people gather and argue about cutting the line. Others are using aliases to receive benefits. Tensions have been building over the weeks as the numbers of people in need increase. Arguments erupt and racial slurs are frequently exchanged. It’s only a matter of time before somebody gets assaulted.

F.O.R. should be commended for their noble efforts and generosity. Unfortunately, nobody would have thought there be a need for security to protect the public. It disgusts me to see people, many of which appear to be illegal aliens, spoil it for those that are honestly in need. I honestly believe a police presence is required to protect those individuals that are not causing the problems.

There are days that I think I’m not in the City of Maricopa, U.S.A., but at a food riot in Somalia.

Once again, the ugliness of human nature shows it’s face at the F.O.R. Food Bank in Maricopa. Once again, public safety is compromised. It’s only a matter of time before somebody gets hurt. Police or some form of security should be required to maintain order at this facility.

On Monday, April 20, 2009, (Adolph Hitler’s Birthday, a day which is associated with horrible violence and death.) a group of Hispanics in a bold and offensive manner cut in the line at the food bank.

A verbal attack between Whites and Hispanics erupted. Racial slurs along with other negative and threatening comments were made. Somebody even said, “Those are the kind of people that should have their houses burned down while they are sleeping in them.“ Shouting and yelling went on for several minutes before a food bank volunteer stepped in to break up the dispute.

The Hispanics that caused this problem refused to comply with the directives given by the food bank volunteer and showed bitterness and contempt. That directive was to go to the rear of the line where they belonged in the first place. These disruptive people eventually got to the rear of the line.

I am hoping that there will not be a drive by shooting or some other act of violence at the food bank next Monday.

Sincerely,

For a number of months there was little or no trouble. A change in the sign-up process eliminated most of the line jumping issues. Unfortunately, that all changed with the recent commission of a crime.

A burglary to a motor vehicle occurred at the F.O.R. Food Bank. Personal items and documents were taken from a car parked directly behind the building. The victim of this crime happens to be an unemployed single parent. The person responsible for this crime has earned the title of “scum of the Earth”. Anyone that would do something like this would also steal from his/her mother and deserves to find themselves face down in a pit covered with lime.

I spoke with the victim shortly after the incident. I cautioned him that since documents were taken, the thugs now know his name and address. They also knew he was not at home. What this boils down to is that this man’s home is not safe if he’s at the food bank on Monday morning.

On a previous occasion, I observed a pair of heavy-set Hispanic males lurking around a red SUV that did not belong to them. I made direct eye contact with these subjects and they quickly moved away from the vehicle. They were “window shopping” and it was clearly obvious to others. I spent nearly a decade in a profession where I conducted surveillance on people. Their body language raised lots of red flags.

I firmly believe some people are alive, simply because it’s illegal to kill them.

I arrived at the F.O.R. Food Bank at approximately 7:00AM and couldn’t help but notice a Maricopa Police Department Ford Excursion unit #404 parked right out front. I noticed that there were noticeably fewer people waiting for food assistance. I also noticed those two Hispanic male window shoppers were not present either.

Perhaps the Maricopa Police Department might be kind enough to park a unit there every Monday. I thought it made an excellent “billboard” and crime deterrent. The trouble makers, illegal aliens, wannabe thugnuts and potential thieves just kept going when they saw the unit parked there. I’ll even sit close to it to make sure nobody tries to vandalize or break into it.
