In a parking lot?  Ya, that's okay  Dickish, but not worth hitting her over.  If it was street parking, then hell no.  Mow her ass down.

Back in my club working days sometimes when we had special events we would get permits from the city for the parking spots out in front of the club we worked at. They put up signs saying no parking from X to X and sometimes we even had officers and the staff would warm people about the parking restrictions. But one night this lady went on about how she paid taxes and this was her road and she could park where she wanted. After they towed her she said she was going to sue us all.

Should have given her a real injury rather than bumping her and having her fake one.

You know, dickishness aside it's just not that well thought out. At some point, you're going to have to leave your precious asphalt fiefdom to grab your car to claim that spot. At which point, the standoff is just going to end with the other person taking the space.

//Granted, this is all assuming that placeholder objects will not be used, which may require the other car to pull in partially, get out and remove the item, then claim victory
//it's a zero-sum game.

How fast was the car going into the parking space that it injured the person that badly?  I say arrest them both.  Wreckless op to the driver and attempted suicide and property damage to the stupidstander.  Should have just laid down in front of it and waited 3 turns.  Don't take the towel.  .

Actually they don't at all. Kill someone with your car intentionally and try to use that defense. Get back to us when you've served your sentence.

The woman standing in the spot was saving it for her husband who was driving the car.

No... not necessarily. However, as many have so eloquently stated above, it might not be the time nor place to make that... stand.

So you missed the 2nd and 3rd sentences in TFA, I see:

A woman got out of her car about 11 a.m. to help her husband search for parking near the West Seattle Summer Fest, Seattle police reports say. She found an open space in a parking lot in the 4500 block of 44th Avenue Southwest, stood in the spot and summoned her husband to pull in.

Nah, it's when the dead person's family drags you into civil court and sues you for $5 million or so...

I'd have gotten out of my car, kicked her ass, then got back in the car, and then run her ass over then backed up and drove over her again, then got out and dragged the lifeless body out from underneath the car, curbstomped the biatch, then gotten a machete from the trunk and dismembered her right in the street and then set the body parts on fire, THEN went about my merry way.

Tah Dah.

What most people do is allow the person to take the spot, then scratch their car.

That way everyone is unhappy.

CSB: This happened to me in Philly.

It was 4:30, I had just come from a long day of chemo at the hospital, and half the streets in center Philly were no-parking during rush hour. I needed something to eat before driving home and had already been heavily ticketed on a previous trip for parking in a handicapped spot (I didn't see the sign which, in Philly, is literally about four inches by four inches and drowned out by other full-sized and over-sized signs-- and there was no wheelchair painted on the street). So after 20 minutes of circling in heavy congestion, I was elated to find a spot. I put on my signal, moved past it to back in, began my maneuver... and the car behind me darts their front end into the space.

She couldn't complete the job without me moving. And I wasn't moving.

I snapped. I probably turned three shades of purple, and burned the ears of everyone around me with the language I used to tell her that she needed to, er, remove her car. She was all prepared to give me attitude and refuse until she looked at me... and then she quickly backed out and left.

As I got out of the car, some shop clerk on a smoke break looked at me and slightly shook his head. I was about to say "some people have nerve, right?" Then I realized it was at least as likely that he was shaking his head at me. I shrugged and went into the deli.

Don't f*ck with a cancer patient after chemo. Sometimes the drugs make us go all Mr. Hyde.

This happened at our local kids soccer fields. Not enough parking, and games scheduled back to back. 90% parking space turnover between games, but cars from next game arrive about 45 minutes before previous games' cars are gone.

Dude took an extra step toward the vehicle as it squeezed into the spot, and got his foot run over. Then there were two police cruisers, a fire truck, and an ambulance responding to the truck vs. pedestrian 911 call. I have no idea how in the hell they turned that fire truck around when there were people parked there with about 150 cars roaming around looking for parking. My family rode bicycles there, so didn't have to deal with any of it (and spent less time getting there/going home).

At least it prompted the league to put another 30 minutes between games, and just make up for it with an earlier and a later game on the schedule each Saturday.

Reading the Article? On Fark?
That's just flagrantly un-american, bordering on communist. Why let the full, weighted facts stand in the way of a good baseless knee-jerk reaction?
