had98c: Zik-Zak: FTA: But the official replied, "I'm just doing my job" and carried on.Really? The Nuremberg defense, really?Because writing people tickets is in the same ballpark as genocide.
jaylectricity: Why would they have parked the hearse in a no parking zone?
mr_a: I do not support violence, especially against law enforcement and public officials.But in this case, I might make an exception. What an ass.
JPINFV: Goimir: Got 45 minutes to wait?No... but I also don't live in the middle of nowhere. As such, response times for full time career paramedics is less than 10 minutes from placing the call to 911. Just because you choose to live someplace remote doesn't mean you also get to choose to ignore the traffic laws.
Surool: Has an ass kicking been more richly deserved?
Goimir: Fun fact: an ambulance, by law, is not permitted to run a red light or to speed. So when one of your loved ones is being transported, please inform the driver that you wish them to obey all traffic laws as they apply to normal situations.
Stone Meadow: Why is it that traffic warden attracts so many passive-aggressive yobs?
doglover: mr_a: 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.
BeerGraduate: If a hearse crashes in the middle of a forest does anyone care?
Zik-Zak: FTA: But the official replied, "I'm just doing my job" and carried on.Really? The Nuremberg defense, really?
BarkingUnicorn: I'm guessing the assault charge amounted to "grabbed the traffic warden's sleeve." If there was the blood, the Sun would have played it up.
cirby: 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.
NuttierThanEver: Tom: Jesus, Ed, we've got a traffic warden!Bacon: I think he's still alive - he's got claret coming out of him somewhere. What did they want with a traffic warden?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![Bacon punches the Traffic Warden, who moans in pain]Tom: Don't touch him up. Knock him out!Bacon: I'll knock you out in a minute! Look, you want to knock him out? You knock him out.Eddie: I farking hate traffic wardens.
