Abuse of Power?


Or just plain lazy?

The sign on the OTHER side (you know, the one that applies to the patrol car) says "Police Vehicles Only". Another attempt to create a mountain without having a molehill first.....

Upon closer inspection, there is something very wrong with adaptation .

To 8:36AM ~~ That's BS and you know it, especially IF you bothered to read the linked post.

To 10:55AM ~~ Huh?

SCATS said...

To 12:31PM ~~ No hoax either. Interestingly, my Facebook pals are now giving OTHER EXAMPLES of where they've seen Greece cops "abuse their power" by parking in fire lanes, etc. It's COMMON PRACTICE IN GREECE NY! It happens routinely at Wegmans, Walmart, KMart, various restaurants ... even in front of Walgreens. Those are places I've personally witnessed cops take the easy route to parking their cruisers.

The Craigslist add proves nothing.. Why not take the pic showing what the sign is. Besides if there was an emergency they can park where ever needed. This pic only shows what the person wanted it to show and that's it.

8:36 Here. I did read the attached post, which is provably false. No BS on my part, just in the Craigslist post:
1. Poster admits to hating cops.
2. Poster says this is in front of Hooligans. The handicap spaces at Hooligans are single spaces facing the curb, not doubles like in the picture. There are no trees in the parking lot near Hooligan's. The photo is from the food court entry (that's the houses on Mitchell Road in the far background). Do you believe everything you're told by "cop haters", or do you think for yourself?

Of course they park in the fire lanes. they are emergency vehicles for christ sakes. What would you have them do when responding to an emergency situation? Drive around and look for a parking spot somewhere in the lot when minutes or seconds could make a difference between life and death. What if it was you or one of your friends in need of immediate help and the cop was too late because he had to find a legal parking spot. Please use your head and think about the ramifications of such a delay. Besides, that,s not a police car in the first place.Check out the ridiculous replica of a light bar and the padding under it to protect the roof of the phony car.

8:36 You are right. I got a ticket last year for parking in one of those spots. I am handicapped had a sticker and parked there without reading the sign. Tracked down the public safety guy who was still in the area who wrote the ticket. He told me that they have to keep those spots open for police cars. He also. Told me something I did not know. Handicap spots must have two elements that distinguish a handicap spot from all others. An upright sign on a post and wheel chair markings on the pavement . The cop spot had no such marking when I checked it out. It is confusing if you are not careful though.

I can not wait until you need them and they take their time finding somewhere you find acceptable for them to park. Get a hobby and stop the ugliness towards the people that put their life on the line everyday to protect this community. you sound like such an ass!!!!!!!!

To 12:59PM & ALL OTHERS ~~ Most notably, not a single one of you has disputed that Greece cops abuse their power by parking in places the rest of us peons aren't allowed to park just for the sake of convenience. And THAT'S the point of this post. They should be leading by EXAMPLE. They should be acting as ROLE MODELS. They should NOT be abusing their power simply because they wear a badge. It's not hard to find a cop parked in a fire lane, handicapped spot or other NO PARKING zone in Greece for times when there is NO EMERGENCY! I've seen it myself ... at Wegmans ... at the fast food restaurants ... at the drugstores ... in most plazas about town. When the cop car is in the fire lane and the officer is standing in line inside to buy a candy bar, IT IS AN ABUSE OF POWER ... OR JUST PLAIN LAZY ... MAYBE BOTH!

To 3:44PM ~~ I save all such threatening remarks like yours. If ever I need emergency services and there is ANY appearance of foot-dragging, there will be a lawsuit slammed on the offenders so hard and so fast they won't know what hit them.

SCATS said...

Don't look now but another blogger agrees with my take on this non-emergency parking problem some Greece cop created from laziness and/or entitlement ... he even took pics.

okay folks, cops and firemen do park in fire lanes and other spots that the "peons" can't park in. why??? Well, even when they take a break for a meal or a 15 minute break like you get under the law on a job they still respond to calls. So, if they need to run in and get a soda from Walgreens, they may need to run out and get back in the car and head to a call. If it is me with my gramma bleeding on the floor or I am the person just mugged, I kind of want them to get to me fast. So, if they get the kudos of parking in the non-peon spots so they can get to me faster so be it. By the way, if you have ever had an emergency remember how long it seemed to take for help.... because time almost stands still when you are really scared??? When actually, the amount of time was less than five minutes or even three, imagine if you had to wait for them to run through the store and to the back of large wegmans lot. Scats I think you ate a little too much catnip today!

This does look a lot like the parking in front of the food court, where the police car perking is designated in the west side of the first parking spot. The east side is designated as handicapped parking.

WOWIE!! Obviously there are a lot of cops with little to do besides write into this BLOG! Personal attacks on myself and other named individuals will NOT be posted. The ridiculous idea that "the picture is inaccurate" along with the accompanying rants that are in barely understandable "English" are something I'm not going to give people a headache with trying to comprehend.

For the record, I posted this BLOG first, not the other person a bunch of you are hating on.
