Over a dozen arrested for feeding homeless in El Cajon

EL CAJON (KUSI) — Over a dozen people were arrested Sunday evening in El Cajon for feeding the local homeless population.

The arrests come in the wake of a newly enacted city ordinance banning people from feeding the homeless in public, but the group defied the new ordinance in an act of civil disobedience.

The group was given citations and not taken to jail.

This act of civil disobedience was in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one attendee said.

The group plans to do the same thing in two weeks.
