I do not support violence, especially against law enforcement and public officials.

But in this case, I might make an exception. What an ass.

I also do not condone violence against LEOs as policy. However, policy is not enough for every situation. Sometimes, force major strikes and you have to fall back to a good moral compass and the character to do what's right.

In this case, good. The traffic warden is lucky to be alive. Not because of the assault, but because anyone so butt farking stupid that they tried to ticket a man putting his wife in a hearse on her funeral day should have long ago killed himself by gross negligence, like bringing the hair dryer into the bathtub to save time.

I have nothing but disgust for the warden and the council's lack of an apology.

Eddie: I don't know, but I don't think we need him! Knock him out and dump him at the lights.
Bacon: Knock him out? What do you mean, knock him out? Knock him out with what?
Eddie: I don't know. Use your imagination!

Traffic wardens have heard every excuse in the book, and once they write the ticket they really don't like getting stiffed.

Came here to say almost exactly that. Nothing about the assault was mentioned, other than it happened - we don't know if the guy just said "I'll knock your teeth out" or if he actually hit him. I am hoping it's the latter and that no charges are laid.
 
2013-05-18 11:32:41 AM  
Sounds like a solid round-up of douche-bags on both sides.  What does a funeral have to do with parking illegally?  Shut-up and pay your well deserved ticket like an adult.

You could - and I know this is crazy - RTFA and find out, since they say why in it.

The white zone is for loading and unloading of hearses only.  There is no parking in a red zone.

Classic.

Guy just lost his wife of 48 years, and their cars are briefly stopped in a yellow zone while they're waiting for the hearse and procession to pass to follow. I dunno, on the east coast where I'm from funeral processions get a lot of leeway (they're even allowed to run lights in the funeral procession in some places). I can't imagine someone being such a cockmunch.

Yes, they are called principals, school board members, and "Teach the Controversy" proponents.

I would much rather he kicked a tow truck driver's ass.  I had a vehicle towed out of a lot where I lived because I'd simply left it there too long (it was my dedicated winter ride).  At the tow depot they had on the form that they'd towed it at 2pm, as if they actually had the balls to do that in the middle of the afternoon instead of what they really did which is come grab it at 3am like the snivelling weasels they are.

/i get the validity of towing but don't pretend you have a job you're proud to carry out in the light of day you farking bottom feeder.
 
2013-05-18 12:03:54 PM  
It must be different over there, because where I am, if the driver is still in the car, it is not considered to be "parked", it is "standing".

The car can be moved at will if it is indeed obstructing something.

It's very hard to write a ticket when you're rightfully getting your ass handed to you, or when you're surrounded by a lot of people who will start breaking pieces off of you for "doing your job" when everyone knows you have plenty of latitude to just walk away.

I'd take a less-violent approach. I'd take a photo of the guy writing the ticket, get his name off of the ticket, print up a whole lot of posters and flyers, and make sure that everyone in town knew exactly what sort of person they are. Especially including his family and neighbors. And his boss. And the judge.

We need a lot more public shaming of useless and nasty public employees. They depend on anonymity and the protection of the bureaucracy.

Hollister shirt, he is a douche and should be assaulted just on general principles.
Traffice Warden should also be assaulted on general principles.

From the article, I assumed that the complaining about the ticket was the offence.  Probably done in an impolite manner.  Intimidating said traffic warden into not giving the tickets.  Assault, get it?

They probably get so used to saying it that they don't even think about it anymore. I'd imagine that a traffic cop says that every two minutes on average. They probably approach tourette's levels with how many times they have to say that specific line that during the day.

I'd imagine if you had a job where you pissed off every person that you came in contact with, you'd lose a bit of humanity. Think about how we view lawyers. Of course, some days lawyers help people. They get some good PR. Traffic cops piss everybody off. Even people they don't ticket. I saw a waitress move her car yesterday in Downtown Nashville. This means that while she was working she was going out every two hours to move her car because of parking laws.

You'd probably get more love if you just went around kicking people in the nuts all day.

utah dude:

Nope - when you attack one of these guys, you not only get the legal issues - he feels vindicated, and gets to tell the story like you're a crazy person. There also isn't exactly a lot of "macho" in beating up a guy who dresses like a cop but doesn't do anything tougher than writing out a parking ticket.

When you take the public shaming route, he's the one who has to explain his actions to everyone.
