Cops Conduct Sting On Disabled-Parking Abuse – Look Who They Caught Stealing Spots Most!

Published

When I go shopping I avoid handicapped spaces like the plague for two reasons. The first is that I feel for those who truly need those spaces to make it easier for them to get in and out of the parking lot. The second is I don’t want to get slapped with a horrendous fine. People should respect those two points even at a county fair in California.

The Department of Motor Vehicles conducted four sting operations at the Los Angeles County Fair. Their targets were those drivers who looked to game disabled parking places by the clever and dishonest use of handicapped placards. Anyone who was caught got nailed with a citation and deservedly so.

“We want the public to know that a person who is assigned a disabled parking placard is the only one who can legally use it,” said DMV Investigations Chief Tom Wilson in a statement. “Our goal is to achieve compliance through education and enforcement, and we ask those without a disability to save the space.”

“I’m glad they’re cracking down,” said Laura Romero of Lake Arrowhead. “Because a lot of people who have these cards shouldn’t have them.” And it’s not just California you see that in. I’ve seen it happen all over the country.

During the operations – which took place on four different September days – authorities checked 1,955 placards and issued 345 citations. That’s nearly 17 percent of them. What the heck is wrong with these people? Who does something like that?

Citations range from $250 per violation all the way up to $1,000. If I were the police, I’d go for the max on something like this. This disgusts me and I can’t believe people stoop this low. Check that, yes, I can.

“We get a lot of family members using their father’s or mother’s (placard),” said Commander Paula Lucero of DMV Investigations. “Sometimes they’ll flat out tell us (the placard owner is) at home, and they’re just using the placard to get better parking.” So much for honesty anymore. It looks to me as if the majority of those caught are the children of those who need those spots who figure they can just use the placard. SMH.

Most of the people caught would not talk to the media. Shocker there. But some actually did. “Ah, it is what it is,” said Will Espinoza, who claimed he was driving his brother-in-law’s vehicle and since it had a placard hanging from the rear-view mirror, he decided to use it. Dude, you do know that makes you look like a grade-A scumbag, right? Not to mention putting the size of your IQ in question.

“It’s like a speeding ticket, eventually you’re going to get one,” said Espinoza about the citation he received. Really? No, it’s not because most people don’t do something like that. I believe most people are good and don’t lie like this. Maybe I’m just naive that way. This is the kind of guy that thinks lying and stealing are normal somehow.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says that each of its 24 districts conducts a disabled-person parking placard enforcement operation at least once a month. “We really want to educate the public and let them know this is a violation,” said Lucero. “It’s a steep fine, and if you’re out there misusing it, we’re going to find you and give you a citation.”

The citations did not include people without placards parking in designated stalls because, according to DMV authorities, the operation took place in the disabled parking lot and to enter every person either had a disabled placard or disabled license plate.

This is the second year the DMV has done this at the L.A. County Fair. Last year, of the 2,754 placards checked during five operations, investigators caught 477 people misusing them, officials said. Gee, it’s a trend.

“If there is someone illegally taking a parking spot from a guest with a disabled parking placard, we want to know about it,” said Miguel A. Santana, Fairplex’s president, and CEO, in a statement. “Those spots are designed for those who need them. So, we are happy to assist the DMV in making sure everyone is following the law.”

In California, a valid placard cannot be used by anyone but the person it was issued to and they must be present when it’s in use. Additionally, individuals cannot display a canceled or revoked placard. That seems pretty straightforward to me and applies pretty much everywhere you go I bet. I still can’t wrap my head around anyone who would pull something like this.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!

Published

on

An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.

Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:

An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.

Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.

“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.

Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.

“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”

Reps. David Price (D-N.C.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) released a joint statement following  Oliver-Bruno’s arrest, saying the man was “entrapped” and vowing to fight his arrest.

“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.

“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”

Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.

Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
