See why I hate people? It's probably illegal to give the food away but it would gone so quickly the bank could have said it was stolen. No one would have complained. The police wouldn't bother.

read and noted on 4-10-13 here's your sign!!! stupid where do these idiots get off throwing away all of this food and punish these people by making them stand there and watch i see that no one wants to help out anymore we have a real bad economy people either have no job or they lost their job and maybe no place to call home,but lets torture these people by tossing out food and telling them you are not allowed to any of it a big disgrace and a slap in the face we are suppose to help one another,but i guess that went out the window then to add injury to insult you have the police restrain them what a joke we can not even take care of our own no other country does this this needs to change.

I could understand not giving away perishable food that might spoil, but it was cruel and stupid to throw away everything else. Or at least give it to a soup kitchen, who could have accepted liability and could have handed the food out.

SAd; apparently not the bank's call, but the store owner(s) appear to be callous bastards.

It's no wonder why we're the most wasteful nation on the planet. All that food could've gone to people who really need it but doing things out of greed, spite and stupidity just makes it all the more sad and pathetic.
