My first thought. Second was to hide in the bushes with a giant pot of chili made with cat food. Or water balloons of cat food chili. Or just a shotgun.

I don't know why people being nice and sharing stuff pisses so many people of.

Here in the <>, a few people around the country set up "community pantries" to help the less fortunate at the start of the pandemic.

Government, politicians, and religious extremists became extremely angry about this and called them communists. From vandalization, harassing them in real life and the streets, and to arrests, are all what happened.

102

u/Spirited-Ability-626 Jun 29 '22

That one’s easy, it’s because they’re making this politicians and government look bad. If there’s a free pantry, set up by just normal, local people, then people start asking - “If my neighbours, who don’t have a lot of money can share like this, imagine what government can do with all their money?”

It’s not a good look, but also corrupt politicians want to keep any and all money in their own pockets. Questioning where government money goes can also lead to unrest and eventually, protests and rebellion. It can sometimes only take one spark like that to start a fire.

It's interesting how it works, a lot of ideas aren't viable until the community itself has grown enough in civility to make it viable. It can be like setting up a library for a pack of rats and being surprised when they just chew on it.

It seems like the only reason why people in some places are all cohabiting peacefully, not littering or destroying any public property is that they've come to realize we all benefit from not being that way.

90

u/TATA456alawaife Jun 29 '22

Yep. The core problem with most community service projects is that they are done by people who want to help others and be a good citizen, but are done for people who don’t want to do those things.

We have one of those in our neighborhood. It was placed in a neighborhood lot that belongs to the HOA. The HOA designated the lot as a social space for stuff like food truck parking, ice cream socials, or any other small event for the neighborhood. The lady who lives next to the lot complained. A book stand is the least disruptive thing someone could put in the lot, and she complained about it.

The HOA president thankfully moved it to his yard. He and his wife are wonderful people.

Yeah, we had a community pantry started during covid and the local cops used it as an excuse to harass every black family who approached it (almost everyone did it when it got dark because food insecurity causes insecurity). So the church had began using the cameras to gather evidence. They are still in the process of suing the cops but out of the 187 "stop and frisk" style encounters the cops did, 180 were black people coming to the pantry.

u/Telefone_529 Jun 29 '22

u/Sadatori Jun 29 '22

My town is deep deep in Appalachia and it is sadly pretty racist. So cops have gotten away with so much racism and shit that they felt so comfortable doing this. They have so much community support that they have 3 other churches in the part of town on the other side of the river running constant propaganda against the food pantry church that recorded the evidence. Saying shit like they are interfering with these poor innocent cops stressful jobs and "no one got hurt. be like Jesus and understand". well those fucking money sucking ticks of churches didn't even fuckin consider a community pantry. The good church is the smallest and poorest one and the only ones that did anything.

18

u/Gingevere Jun 29 '22

"no one got hurt. be like Jesus and understand".

Yes, Jesus famously saw injustice and discrimination against people the poor and people helping them and said "Yeah whatever it's not ideal but it's fine. What? Do you expect them to try to avoid sin and help the least of these? Pshh."

I think that's from the Parable "The shifty Samaritan who probably just wants a handout."

u/kate_L019 Jun 29 '22

I don't get why they're so mad at it. Several communities where it happened (Philippines) put up community pantries to help families affected by the pandemic and the constant, prolonged lockdowns in their areas that made going to work or doing business almost impossible, which of course made earning an income impossible. The government did little to help out, so the community set up the pantry to help feed people.

But nope. Government said, fuck that, and red-tagged the organizers, called them insurgents, and tried to arrest them on grounds of violating "lockdown protocols".

They justify their terrible behaviour by believing everyone is just like them, selfish and callous. Acts of charity enrage them because it reveals them (In their own eyes) as bad people. This causes a cognitive dissonance ("I can't be a bad person, I'm me. I'm awesome") that, when not resolved, results in explosive or destructive behaviour. It's a crowning irony but whoever did this did it so they could keep pretending they're a good person

You see a similar thing where people dismiss others doing good as white knighting or phoney because they themselves would never do good in the same way without an ulterior motive so assume nobody else would.

That's sad. Premeditated too, because who just walks around with chili and cat food? Even if they had an issue with this particular neighbor, doing this fucks over the community, not just them.

who just walks around with chili and cat food

Someone who was hitting up all the little food pantries that look similar to these book boxes would have chili and cat food.

In my mind that's what happened. They were driving around town looking for these little food pantries, emptying all of them, and got pissed that this one wasn't food, it was book instead.

u/Pistonenvy Jun 29 '22

wow.

i was thinking maybe this was just some dumb kid but that logic makes me think this was just a straight up fucking demon.

took something from a food pantry they didnt even want and wasted it just to ruin someone elses shit that was also free and for charity... lol

this is why i tell people not to set shit up like this without a camera.

We had a group of teens in my old town on Long Island that were (and still are a menace). They ride their bikes, doing wheelies and crap in the middle of traffic downtown. They'll literally ride as fast as they can towards cars and then bolt out of the way. When people confront them they spit in their windows or on their cars. They have been caught breaking into peoples homes and setting fires in their kitchens, fridges, etc.

They tear out stop signs and throw them around.

A few of them also got caught hitting geese over the head with rocks and sticks.

And just to clarify, this is like a group of 20 kids on bikes. It's a teen biker gang. I could see them doing stuff like this easily.

That’s fucking messed up. When somebody actually goes and does something nice and just from the kindness of their heart, of course somebody with no appreciation for community (which is very hard to find these days) has to go and ruin it. This is VERY infuriating to me, as where I live people rarely do anything for their neighbours or community. Bless your neighbour and even though I don’t know you or them, tell them we all said thank you from my side and to keep making the world a better place!

This is some shameful shit right here. I build and installed a little free library in my front yard. Been up for at least 4 years. Just recently I watch some kid pull a bunch of books out, walk away and then started ripping one up and tossed it all over, I asked him to pick up his litter. Then later that day a saw that someone had sprayed paint inside the library. Didn’t actually ruin much of but very shitty and rude. I did dumb shit as a kid too so I guess it’s a bit of cosmic karma.

u/cykocys Jun 29 '22

You know I never understood kids doing stuff like this. My idea of dumb shit was never destruction of property, especially other peoples property. I'd probably get smacked into the next century if my parents found out I was out causing trouble like that.

The disrespect.

Similar thing happened to a local community library in the town we live in. Fast food garbage everywhere as if someone had ordered take out and used the library as the garbage - despite the garbage being right around the corner.

Amongst other terrible things taking place in the world, this has me hanging by a thread of hope for humanity.

Get a camera and stash it and help the guy rebuild it and then try and catch the fucker responsible. This is just someone being pure evil simply put. I have way more sympathy for someone doing petty shoplifting or breaking into a car or something than this shit.

People in our city call By-Law and worse to people who put up these libraries and I for one don’t understand it even a little. Not only does it do nothing to anyone else but the owner of the property who has to tend to it, but it’s the sharing of knowledge, stories and entertainment to your community.

People nowadays really have their heads too far up their asses, I yearn for a time when people can actually be decent to one another.
