More than half of that article is a verbatim reproduction of the police report filed on this incident. Dropped into the normal text so that at a glance it all appears to be the reporter's work.

Hope you're looking for a job in the near future, Lenny. You don't deserve the one you have now. Even if it writing crappy copy for a crappy local news site.

It's what we were all taught in school, right?  An introductory paragraph, a gigantic, unmodified block quote with no additional context, and a summary paragraph.

That'll get you a C pert near anywhere between Delaware and California.

I get where the author is coming from. He probably just had writer's block.  I mean, sometimes when I was starting a new story and I could not get it going, I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think, "Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." So finally I would write one true sentence, and then go on from there. It was easy then because there was always one true sentence that I knew or had seen or had heard someone say.

Exactly. This is what you see on farms and such. The whole thing with the incorrect tags is an issue, but this is not what subby represented it as at all.

OMG, a friend's gone back to college for personal enrichment and has had to "peer review" a few papers.  Sweet, merciful crap, what piles of dung kids are barfing out these days.  Yes, I said barfing dung even tho dung obviously doesn't come out that hole but it makes as much sense as the papers I skimmed.

And my friend's actually lowering himself to that level.  He recently showed me a paper he wrote for another class with the warning that he didn't bother polishing the draft because structure and grammar don't count in that class.

I'm not going to google that.  I'm sure it has happened, or was at least tried.

There was an item a few years ago about someone storing gasoline in plastic bags.

Of course, if you have gasoline sloshing around in your truck bed, what kind of bath toys would you put in?  They'd have to not dissolve in gasoline, and note that gasoline's specific gravity is lower than water so you's need to use only very light toys.

Back when I worked at a gas station many moons ago, I saw that twice.  Both times into what appeared to be stock troughs.  One filled it half full and had concrete blocks as baffles and had plumbing to be able to control the outflow in a reasonable manner which sounds smarter but we'll revisit. The other just a 50 gallon stock trough to the brim.

Neither had lids.  I forget the reason for the rush at the moment but both where the sort of thing where you wait a couple weeks and things are more normal.  In both cases we killed the pumps when we they were noticed and reported to us.  We had enough customers with work trucks that had bed tanks where we would not immediately notice and the cameras were place in a way to catch plates so you would not necessarily see the bed.  Dude with the open full trough took off without paying got less that 300 feet from the exit and found out that loose quantities of sloshing gas in your bed may find a way to your exhaust/a spark source and make things all burn-y.
The guy with the baffled setup got mad, came in and yelled at us, paid and left but a customer had called the police and he didn't make it much farther at first.So forgetting the spillage for a moment, the amount of likely fuel contamination, evaporation and some many other considerations make this so incomprehensible.I walked the guy with the concrete block out to his vehicle as he had calmed down.  I saw that gas; there is no way I'd run in any vehicle without 3-4 fuel filters daisy chained.  And he had portable tanks he was going to fill with it at home.  He was convince we wouldn't let him fill old steel American version of the jerry can.  I'm pretty sure if it was painted red no one would have noticed.  I guess he'd done this before at another station and "would run the gas through coffee filters".  He got a ticket expensive ticket but then was allowed to take it home like that because there was really not a better option for dealing with it.

I've seen a picture of clear plastic bags of gasoline in a car's trunk. But always figured it was fake because I'd expect gasoline to eat through those bags before you could even fill them up.

The worst part is though, that I don't doubt any of it. I know for a fact that so so so many people have done that and worse, thinking it was a good idea.

...E FL driver's license [number] and no commercial driver's license with hazmat endorsements.

Yasmany did not have placards on his Chevy Silverado on either side indicating that he was transporting copious amounts of fuel over a public roadway, which is a violation of Code of Federal Regulation 49.
"

Unless the thing he was pumping the gas into has a capacity over 450 liters (119 gallons), he might not need the CDL or the placards. There might be a bunch of other violations, but without a lot more detail, I can't tell. I'm a little surprised they didn't get a FHP Commercial Vehicle Trooper to look at that. Maybe they will now.

I (on more than one occasion) working at gas stations nearly got patrons beat senseless by an angry mob. Someone would roll up, hop out with a lit cigarette and start pumping. I watched everyone at the pumps like a hawk just because of this, because I'd hit the All Stop...and wait a moment. You'd watch everyone look around, and people would start hitting the call button to talk to us.

I'd hit the Announcement button and calmly say something like 'Ladies and Gentleman, the entire station has been stopped because your friend on pump 3 IS SMOKING A CIGARETTE LIKE A MORON, and we will not restart it until he has put it out. Thank you'.

Then I'd watch the mob roar over to the offender and...do their thing. It sometimes involved simply yelling, but sometimes people would start shoving the guy and a fight would break out.

I enjoyed every minute of it. I know I'm farked up, but I don't care. fark you for smoking at the pump, asshole.

Yes, but when you write a police report, you have to specifically state if you are enforcing a state, county, municipal, or federal law.  Had he not said so, an attorney could have argued that he was just assuming that it was illegal, which is something you are not supposed to do.
