An Arizona woman, Norma Thornton, 78Norma Thornton, 78, has filed a lawsuit against the city of Bullhead after she was arrested for feeding the homeless at a public park

An Arizona woman has filed a lawsuit against the city of Bullhead after she was arrested for feeding the homeless at a public park.

After being detained by police in March while distributing food to the homeless at Bullhead City Community Park, Norma Thornton, 78, was taken into custody. According to NPR, she was accused of breaking municipal law by distributing prepared food in a park without a permit. The Institute for Justice is requesting that the ordinance be completely scrapped on the grounds that it breaches numerous civil rights that Thorton is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.

The arrest of Thornton was opposed by the police officer in the bodycam footage, who then called his superior and described the incident as a “PR disaster.” Thornton has been feeding the homeless for the past four years because she encountered a similar scenario in her life and felt compelled to give back to the neighborhood.
