I think people who cheat the HC park are pretty darn low. I would imagine it has to be on the short end of enforcement's list though.
My favorite line: '...just because I don't look handicapped. You don't look well enough to be a*&^%$ officer with your gut hanging over your stomach."
UPDATE: Riviera Beach Police Department’s PIO Rose Ann Brown states that the department has opened it’s own investigation, based on the video below into the incident with Officer Wilson – whom they identify as Sergeant Gary Wilson – and who has been with the police force there for a “long time”. The Sergeant Wilson reported the incident yesterday to his department, but Riviera Beach PD only saw the video today, and they would not make Wilson’s report available at this time, as it is now part of an active Internal Affairs investigation file.

Lafayette police apologized Monday after a photo of an officer's squad car sitting in a handicap parking space outside an IHOP restaurant drew ire online.
The photo was posted publicly Sunday morning by Facebook user Ryan Schmitt, who claimed his father uses a motorized wheelchair and was forced to park farther from the front door than necessary, due to the officer's actions.
The image was shared more than 1,400 times on Facebook before Schmitt, who didn't respond to a request for comment, either removed his post or altered its privacy settings about 5 p.m. Monday.
A copy of the image posted Monday afternoon to Reddit, an online forum, garnered more than 3,400 comments within five hours.
Lafayette police Chief Patrick Flannelly said the incident, which happened before 7 a.m. Sunday, was a mistake. [Source]

I agree with the veteran but he shamed himself with his language and demeanor. It would have been much more effective if he spoke with condescending wisdom instead of the foul mouth aggressiveness.

They give almost anyone a handicap placard these days. If you don't use a walker or wheelchair, you shouldn't be given a handicap placard period. If you can walk around inside walmart for over an hour, you don't need to be parking in handicap spot.
The cop screwed up by touching the person, he should in my opinion be forced to pay for repairs on the person phone.
