  • Charged with simple criminal damage to property. That isn't enough, charge him with criminal negligence for putting someone's life at risk
  • Private property rights in this country died sometime around 1861. Deal with it.
  • Akesha Allen is a private investigator and in September, she stopped to get a drink at Quicky's. Before getting out, she climbed to the back of the van to secure her equipment when it started shaking.

    "I said, what are you doing? I'm not illegally parked. He goes, yes you are. You didn't pay the fee. I said I never got out of the van to pay the fee," Allen said about a $5 charge for parking in the lot.


    So even if you patronize the store you have to pay a $5 parking fee? wtf? And then get shaken down for $115?

     I'd be trying to remove my boot with that guys face.

    I'd have called the cops and try to have them charged with extortion for the PI case.
  • They say there's no such thing as bad publicity.

    Rebuttal A: Quicky's.
  • In case it wasn't obvious, I can personally attest that the guys who run this store and pretty much anyone who patronizes it are scum.

    The world would be a better place if the doors were barred during peak business hours and it was burned to the ground.
  • It's a weird charge, but obstructing an ambulance on private property may not be a crime. I don't think it is where I live because nobody thought we needed a law on the subject.

    Read UCLA professor Donald Shoup's writings on parking for arguments in favor of making parking non-free in general. Their setup makes me think a bunch of extortionate kneecaps need to be smashed, but charging customers to park is not a fundamentally flawed concept. It's unbundling a cost that we're accustomed to having bundled.
  • That wasn't the defense of the guy who booted the ambulance--it was the owner's explanation. FTFA, it sounds to me like he's trying to deflect all blame on that one guy and get the spotlight off of his parking racket.

    Barstid. How much do you want to bet he summarily fired anyone who missed a chance to boot a vehicle for any reason?

    Seconded. It's right across the street from Criminal District Court, and I get that there are douchebags who would park there and leave to go to court for hours on end, but this is way over the top.
  • Fire him, and fire the guy who hired him!
  • ICE detained the guy after the local cops cited him. He was here on a tourist visa, not a work visa.

    This would make a great Simpsons episode.
  • Unless he's an expar from Shangri-La, I'm not sure that's the best defence for him.
  • Apos: Unless he's an expart from Shangri-La, I'm not sure that's the best defence for him.


    Fixed.
  • In his defense, he always thought it was spelled ecnalubmA

    Who knew?
  • ZAZ: nobody thought we needed a law on the subject


    There is an incredible pile of laws that ought to be unnecessary, passed specifically to address predators like these. So, not only do they steal from all of us, they make our government more and more oppressive.
  • gilgigamesh: The world would be a better place if the doors were barred during peak business hours and it was burned to the ground.


    That seems like an either/or solution.
  • He now plans on riding the bus and booting random young ladies in purple leggings.

    It's fundamentally flawed for something like a convenience store. Do you not see how inconvenient that is?

    I agree. Dump the immigrant to protect the business.
  • He saw the big flashing lights and thought it was the Emergency Doritos Delivery truck?

    I think he is also after the bar's patrons.
  • As i stated with the previous article, these store owners are simply running a scam. It is time that everyone in the community completely boycotted the business and warned others about it.

    Or, as it was mentioned earlier, bar the doors and torch the place.

    This guy should be saddled with the bill for both the truck, and the patient's transport.

    What a douchebag.

    They were bringing Slim Jims.
