that they own.
This is not stealing.
true worth of goods?
it is mistaken of you to try to argue the toss in this case as you know that they do not wish to make use of it.
It is a mean thing to deprive someone of the use of something that you do not want. It is mean to also argue on the side of it.
You shouldn't worry or concern yourself with this sort of technicality, the law cannot hope to legislate for everything, that is why humans must interpret the law sensibly, humans have a duty NOT to use legislation to do other humans wrong when there is no good need. If you do use legislation in a bad way then you make an ass of the law and encourage more people to disrespect it
do you expect them to be in a bush? up a tree? lying in the road? :D
Some might think that the small amount of lack of use afforded to the supermarket by this incursion is not exactly commesurate with poisoning someone.
Its all about balance you see.
If you have an excess of food and no longer need it, then yes I would (and everyone) should expect people who do need food to try to get it.
Surely to think otherwise is bizarre?
Would it not be rather crazy of you to think that an animal would not chose to eat some food when it is very hungry if other animals were not going to eat it.......just because someone had drawn a line?.....and the line was not even to define personal space?
so thats up to you.
I hope that you are happy with your decision, but im sure that you will change your mind when you are ready. We would of course be on other sides if not, and i wouldnt like that
they close at 6pm
so that's six hours for a homeless to get it down his or her neck before it 'goes off'
perhaps it's actually cheaper for the homeless to dispose of it than for the council to dispose of it - especially in its new found incarnation as toxic waste
to be honest I didn't think there'd be any kind of debate about this, I just couldn't think of anything else to use as a subject line for the thread
a thread which I actually intended to be more about how monumentally stupid Lidl staff could be. They could have just put the sign up without doing the poisoning...
but maybe this is the crux; that there's is such a thin dividing line between a Lidl worker and a homeless that the class boundary must be maintained with toxic cleaning products
people who are thirsty in africa will often have to drink muddy and unpleasent water, water that will not be considered fit to provide in western nicey nicey europe.
There are different value systems going on here.
Certainly some of the food that supermarkets used to chuck (in fact a lot of it) is edible.
For instance...stale bread, is not likely to contain very harmful pathogens, yet it will provide essential calories to someone who is hungry.
also they are not 'giving' the food to the homeless by 'not poisoning them'
I don't understand what law is being broken.
also can't you see there is a gulf between 'mess round bins' cw 'poisoning someone'
supermarkets have all sorts of mess...business and excess creates mess. perhaps they could come to some arrangement wit hthe homeless.....if you dont leave a mess we wont poison you? :D
you should see the state of their rooms
I think I mentioned it on here. I still shop there
what if the person who had this done to them decided to take revenge. It is not only wrong it is criminal and should be prosecuted, if the tainting was done with stuff that was possibly deadly then attempted murder would not be an inappropriate charge, of course if there were sufficient warnings that the food was poisened then that would not be so bad, although it would have to also be in brail and how would you warn someone who couldnt read?
Additionally anyone who taints OK food so that someone who is hungry cant eat it is a c*** and deserves a beating (same with water)
In a few cases I have heard of people tainting meat that was poached illeagally, now it MIGHT be excusable when the species of animal are under threat because of unecessary predation and they are trying to eliminate the practice.....however this shouldn't be done at the expense of the hungry.
this is WELL funny.
Its like when you used to rub a 50p in dogshit and then wait for someone to walk past and pick it up.
it's still murder isn't it? Let them go through the garbage. It's not like the supermarket needs it anymore is it?
It has to be proven that someone intended to kill or cause serious harm.
A' HOOOOTY HOOOOW A HWWWWWW ANN A
THEE BLEEEEEACH! AND WEEEEETY HWWW HMMMMWTY HWWWW
A DEEEAAD TRAMMMP-AH!
I think there are significantly more now - about 25,000 or so
I doubt you could poison a homeless person!
no...Domestos would probably go some way towards doing the trick
Domestos would probably just ruin the taste!
The homeless guys with alcohol abuse issues used to drink the hand soap in the bathrooms for the alcohol is it!
We're loving it like this
that your average Lidl employee is blessed with the grey matter required for such plain logic.
In fairness, they might actually be forbidden from giving the food away by their bosses (not by state law though) but that still doesn't excuse creating toxic waste (which is forbidden by state law without a permit) and acting pretty vindictively and dangerously.
back in the late 80's this wasnt happening and so many of us used to go on supermarket runs, even if you didnt need to it was importnt to show solidarity with those that did, and others also got meals out of what was got.
People often cooked communally in squats.
When I lived in offord Road we often shared some food between different houses.
Several people i knew worked in a squatters cafe and payment was sort of optional, many of us sometimes did some food distribution to people under the arches
cos im sure that fareshare will be safer with regard to food.
We used to stick to vegetarian stuff, even the meat eaters cos of the possible dangers, of course there is always the risk that horrid chicken juice might have oozed, but you run that sort of risk anywhere
people steal food that's left in the fridge, would it be wrong to, not poison it, but... do something bad to it?
