JohnnyC: It wasn't an "officer" that left the tickets. Kalamazoo contracted a company that hands out tickets instead of police officers. The company is damn near criminal in how they have set up the parking system. They have confusing signs that only allow parking on one side of the street one day and the other side on another day but have the times offset from midnight. So if your car is parked on the "correct" side, by 2am it will be parked on the "incorrect" side and will get a ticket. Notice both tickets were issued shortly after 2am? That's their "prime ticket hour". They also have many streets completely lacking in any kind of parking signs and if you fight the ticket, they will pull out a laminated photo and say that the parking rules are posted at the city limits and that everyone is subject to those rules whether they've seen one of those signs on the city limits or not. It doesn't surprise me at all that they didn't notice the dead guy in the truck... all they care about is handing out as many tickets as they possibly can./grew up in Kalamazoo
