July 13th Community is threatened…….
As if the news last night wouldn’t be enough to darken the day – a group of people came to the front gate asking for food and water.
The group consisted of 8 men and women. The Security Team members radioed Ryan who then radioed Bill and I. We went to the gate and within the few minutes it took us to get there the small crowd started getting upset.
I talked to Ryan and Bill and addressed the issue of charity. I told them if we give them anything not only will they likely return for more, but others will no doubt hear of it and then they will come. Bill and Ryan said they didn’t see anything wrong with giving them water. I voted against it. I know it may seem cruel – but I felt that it is what had to be done.
Several gallons of water was provided to the 8 people – who after taking it asked about the food. Ryan stood up and told them water was all we could afford to give. A couple of the men started yelling that they were starving and their wives needed food. Ryan looked at me and I said no shaking my head. Ryan relayed the answer to the group. At that point one of the men pulled out pistol from his pocket. Ryan, two members of the Security patrol, and myself drew on the man quickly. The guys wife jumped in front of him and pushed the gun down. We told the group to move on immediately.
They complied and were not happy.
We didn’t even get a thank you for the water.
I talked to Bill and Ryan after group was long gone and emphasized my disagreement with giving away our supplies. They both said that they now agreed with me after thinking about it a bit – but it was too late.
This encounter could have turned a lot worse if the group had been better armed and organized.
