Idiots, fools & dumb*blank*’s

Post by GordonH »

Here is thread for comments and story links not worth a thread of it own. I will start off.

What gets me with one of these types of incidents, the media advise us that "such a violation can carry a maximum $100,000 find and up to a year in jail", then when the little   :cuss: s are caught they're given a warning.

I see red when I see someone parking or parked in a handicap spot when they don't have a hanger and don't appear handicapped.

However, if I see a vehicle with a hanger, I give the benefit of the doubt to the driver who has parked there, I assume either they, or someone they are dropping off or picking up is handicapped.

It seems like we're all going to require body cameras to protect ourselves by being able to ID whoever takes it upon themselves to become a vigilante for whatever perceived wrong they see us commit.

I don't think these "good citizens" who feel it's their duty to enforce laws, are stupid though. A burley guy riding a motorcycle who parks in a handicap spot, will likely not be approached, the vigilante having other things on their mind (like keeping their teeth).

Come to our dream wedding. Might be a good idea to ask the homeowner for permission before sending out invitations.
The owner of a 16,300-foot Florida mansion called the police after a groom showed up with another person at the property to start setting up for a wedding, despite never getting permission to host it there.

The groom, Courtney Wilson, and the bride, Shenita Jones, had sent out online invitations to “our dream home and estate," calling themselves “the Royal Couple". They called the property in suburban Fort Lauderdale “the Wilson estate" despite not owning the mansion.

We all know how crazy some of the eco-craxies can be, blockaded trains, pipelines, highways, nuclear power plants, but blockading a bicycle race?
That's the best they can do?

BTW, what happens in 989 days, as that's what one of the crazies was advertising.
