brimed03: Pokey.Clyde: brimed03: "Crippy boy" is the sort of old-fashioned phrase a stereotypical bigot would use, hence my caricature of an old bigot paired with the hope that you were actually just trolling. But since you seem pretty ignorant of the fact that terms like "crippy" and "boy" (as a derogative) went out of use somewhere around 1969, I'll have to resign myself to the fact that ignorant slobs, too, can sometimes be found right here in the comment sections of Fark.Keep calling me names and talking down to me. It sure does a hell of a lot to make you look good. And as for "crippy boy", the first time I ever heard that term was while watching Clerks 2./and I think you need to look up the definition of sarcasmI really can't tell if you're trolling or just dense! You call mikey "cripple boy" and then take offense at the perception that I'm calling you names. So let me add another: clueless./"looking down ON" you, not "looking down TO" you.//my definitions, like my grammar, are just fine thanks
Crid: "Officer Tommy King, with the Baytown Police Department, patrols the apartment complex and keeps the criminals away."So without his presence, the place would be overrun with criminals? What happens when he goes off duty?
gfid: At one time I had 2 cops and a ex-cop living very close to me.The active cops drove their patrol cars home. The ex-cop drove a de-commissioned Caprice Classic that was obviously a cop car. One of my friends came over one evening and saw their cars and asked what was with all the cops. Nothing, they're my neighbors.
debug: See, if you actually learn how to drive, you won't have to back in to parking spaces to be able to get out of them without causing an accident.

ArcadianRefugee: "Turns out we're both from Alabama," said [Officer] King. "And we ended up in Texas. We talked and now I have a new friend."An adult has a 14yo girl as a "friend".[blurbrain.com image 352x707]/great part is, he can arrest himself
debug: My all time favorite are the people who either pull through or back into a space at a grocery store. I like to park as close to the back of their car as I can so they can't open the tailgate or trunk.
Stoker: 99sportster: Stoker: 99sportster: Stoker:It's for the cops. So they can drive through and check your plates... so they can give you a ticket.I bet her name went into his special black book. "I'll see you later."This is in Texas. We have plates on the back AND front.Nice try, though.Can I spin again?I bet the front plate doesn't have the expiration date on it like the back does.Actually, your plate's expiration date is on your windshield right with your inspection sticker. No sticker on the plate at all. Front or back.Strike two. Try again.Dagnabbit. And I bet the sticker is on the front windshield.So for my final effort...So the cops can see how many rifles are in the window gun rack?
debug: Pokey.Clyde: TuteTibiImperes: Why would an apartment complex have a rule that you have to park 'head first'? If I can I always prefer to back in to parking spaces, it makes it much safer when pulling out.And this is a load of crap. Unless you don't know how to turn your head and back out slowly, there is little to no difference when it comes to pulling out. Plus, everyone has to wait around on the asshole backing in to get out of the damn way when they're pulling in.Exactly. It's always faster to pull in and back out. If you can't look around to see if anything's coming, you shouldn't be driving to begin with. If your view is blocked while backing out, it's going to be blocked while pulling out as well.
steve42: Wow... 4 hours before anyone made an unwarranted attack on Alabama. I guess all the anti-backing-in wharrgarbl threw off the dynamic.
Necronic: That argument was so dumb. Everyone knows that you always back into a parallel parking spot (unless you have a ton of space and are feeling lazy). This has to do with having only the front wheels turn (so you pivot on the back wheels). For a perpendicular parking I don't think it really matters one way or another.
chaosweaver: In response to the back in v.pull in debate, I propose a third option, and my personal favorite: pull through. All the speed of pulling in combined with the quick egress of backing in.

The article and the ensuing Farkus was all about backing into perpendicular parking spaces.
brimed03: Actually, you didn't. What you said was: talking down on me
mgshamster: I agree. Unfortunately, when you are constantly dealing with the worst of society, it can be easy to forget that.
Frederick: mgshamster: I agree. Unfortunately, when you are constantly dealing with the worst of society, it can be easy to forget that.Not a valid excuse. And certainly not something that should be tolerated to be said aloud. "Dealing with the worst of society" is an obvious part of the job. If an officer cannot tolerate that aspect, cannot learn to adapt or find constructive ways to handle it, then they should not be cops.
