When SunTrust Bank bank foreclosed on the Laney Supermarket grocery store, managers were left with thousands of pounds of food and nowhere to put it. So, they decided to move non-perishable items to the parking lot for those who might need it. As news of the give-away spread throughout the neighborhood, a crowd numbering in the hundreds quickly swooped in.
But the goods never made it into the hands of people who desperately needed, as local police barricaded the stockpile of food. They called in a disposal company and tossed every bit of it into the trash, angering many of those who had hoped they could take some of the food home.
“People have children out here that are hungry, thirsty, could be anything. Why throw it away when you could be issuing it out?” asked Robertstine Lambert.
The Marshal of Richmond County, Steve Smith, says the food wasn’t theirs to give away, so they had to trash it.
“We don’t have authority to take possession of the property; we just have to make sure that it’s handled, disposed of by law,” Smith, said
“These are brand new items; we saw the potential for a riot was extremely high,” said Sheriff Richard Roundtree.
Jennifer Santiago was forced to leave empty handed and she says trashing the merchandise is truly a waste.
“For them to do this is a low blow. A lot of people are sad, a lot of people aren’t going to have food to put on their table; this is ridiculous,” she said.

Nearly 100 million Americans are living on the edge of poverty  and 47 million Americans have nowhere to turn but Uncle Sam  to help put food on their tables through nutritional food assistance programs.
When a grocery store is giving away food that has no official owner what do benevolent government officials tasked to serve and protect do?
They look starving Americans in the face and throw the food in the trash.
Still think the government will help you  should our financial, economic and political systems collapse? Still think they care about you or your children?
Not a single official had the wherewithal to do what’s right and feed the hungry.
They were all just following orders .
