Law & Disorder
I am still fuming a week after speaking with Kim from the Bronx. Her parking crime was having the temerity to display on the windshield of her NY registered automobile a seven (7) day past due inspection sticker.
Can we make Judge Roy Bean a verb?
In the lawless vast wasteland East of the Hudson lies the meanest streets in the US of A. It is a place normal drivers fear to drive. It is in her legal parking space with no outstanding parking tickets where our friend Kim was judge roy beaned by a parking ticket warrior. Sentence was executed by a fearless tow truck operator. Believe it or not, and I don’t, Kim’s car was towed. Yessiree, towed for an seven (7) day past due inspection sticker.
It gets worse
After the initial shock wore off viewing the empty parking space where she legally parked her car earlier in the day, Kim called the impound yard. She was told by a compassionate voice on the other end of the telephone:
” Lady, I can’t release your car. It would be too dangerous because you have an overdue inspection sticker. If you are involved in an accident, you could sue the City.”
Kim asked the voice, “why are you doing this?” The voice answered, ” Because I can.”
Fortunately for Kim, she knew the Marshall. An old friend of hers was a retired police officer. She and Wyatt went to the pound (they wouldn’t allow Kim in the yard area. She had to wait outside) and Wyatt won the release of Kim’s car.
