Ah, ice cream truck turf wars. It's a cold underground world, a place where blood and melted fudge-pops mix amidst a chorus of godawful jingle-jingle music.

A friend of mine had a summer gig as an ice cream man and this stuff is pretty common. There was a particular incident where ice cream trucks engaged in a high speed chase around a trailer park which ended with an ice cream truck run off of the road. They also fight back at the garage over claims of exclusive rights to certain routes.

Couple ice cream trucks cruise around my neighborhood. Told my kids no $$ because the pops they sell for $3.25 each you can get at the store 10-20 in a pack for a that price. Not kidding, because I checked.

Also happens that we live in a "gated" community, in that you can't be here without permission (not even drive through) and they didn't get permission. Cops pull them over all the time. One caught a child molester (heard from a neighbor) on one of the trucks.

I don't find this strange at all. In most municipalities you have to pay for a vendors license and sales permit. They're usually given out for territories to reduce overlap. Some fee prices are directly related to potentiel sales.
So to have someone selling on your turf that didn't pay for the right to be there can result in some chilling scenes.

True, but now it's a sign that we don't go to that truck. The driver is Syrian, and my wife is Lebanese. There is not a lot of love between the two peoples.

The one in my neighborhood plays some tune whose real name escapes me--I can only remember the childhood parody lyrics:

Oh, I had a little chickie
But she wouldn't lay an egg,
So I poured hot water
Up and down her leg.
Well, my little chickie cried,
And my little chickie begged,
And that little chickie
Laid a hard-boiled egg.

And then, after the tune ends but before it starts up again, there's a single spoken word: "HELLO??" It's weird. Especially after the news story a couple of months ago from Maryland about the ice cream truck driver who was also selling pot. This was not a concept I'd ever heard of, but as I recall from the Fark thread, the associated view was, "Duh, doesn't EVERYONE'S ice cream man sell pot?"

What about the poor reporters who did the inventory on these children's treats?

Though the cones were rather small, they had to count them all.

Get out of what? If you're referring to my duty status I'm still in. As for the driver, I didn't have to. He was already in cuffs with 3 squad cars right there by the time I drove by. By "gated" community I mean "off base housing" that doesn't have a fence, guard shack, or guard, but it's government property patrolled by base cops. That and the fact that there are about 10 people per block around here with firearms and better training than doughnut cops in the use of such means I don't worry much.

If you mean jail, I've never been in. I usually just lurk, and post when I feel like it...

I can believe the ice cream turf wars.

The trucks I saw in the article were far nicer than the "ice cream trucks" here in the Las Vegas area. Ever seen a beat up old brown van, with a window AC Jerry-rigged to the back window, with hand painted markings that are misspelt words with some stickers of various ice creams? And the funny thing is, it isn't just one of these crappy ice cream trucks that I saw like this, but its pretty standard style for ice cream trucks in the Las Vegas Area, specially North Las Vegas.

Can't wait to get move from this hellhole.

I thought this was going to happen at the park where I was watching a sports tournament this weekend. We were in a crap neighborhood, and its generally questionable whether the ice cream man is actually selling ice cream or something else out of his truck in that area. When a second truck showed up, we all wondered if an ice cream man rumble was going to take place in the middle of the street.

Since you still fail to understand, my "gated community" is US military property. No one, and I mean no one, is allowed unless you are a resident, a guest of a resident, or an authority figure of the United States Department of Defense. Not even civilian law enforcement is allowed unless coordinated and escorted by base personnel.

These "poor sods" are trespassing on federal property. Verifying their identity and then escorting them off the area is actually a pretty lame reaction, considering.

Oh I think I understand perfectly.

It's called privatized housing. Not the best decision the brass ever made, but that's why It's outside the wire. But keep telling me It's a universal right to be on government property without permission. Apparently you miss the threads here about people fleeing cops and try to hide on a military base.

If you were a child molester what job would you try for that doesn't have a background check? The IC truck that drives around here has a worse paint job than the garbage trucks. You did list the top two reasons not to let your children near those things and I thank you.
