Its been a while since I had the privilege of reading a story like this!
A citizen of Wausau Wisconsin left their vehicle parked overnight in a metered lot. A Police Officer was approaching the vehicle to issue a parking citation, when he noticed a note on the windshield that said:
"“Please take pity on me,” the note said, “I walked home … Safe choices. =)”
The reason why the person walked home is not given, although i think its safe to speculate they were intoxicated, or over tired.
The officer left a 'Warning' citation, with the notation:
"Pity Granted."
Here's the full story
It was a nice relief to see a story showing the lighter side. Even nicer that people are using common sense and making "safe choices". Nicer still, that officers are obliging these safe choices.
Let's all remember this story and make safe choices this summer!

Love when people make smart decisions and not rigid ones.

I'm not quite sure how to react to this considering the typical stories we get here. The contention factor is nearly zero.

Can you have the police officer go and shoot this person's dog so I have a better idea what to say?

What's with the groveling? I'd rather pay the ticket than kiss a cop's ass.

"Pity granted." Spoken from atop his high stinking horse, no doubt.

Ok, so imagine that the officer left the warning/note affixed to the front tire with a switchblade.

Can they violate the person's Constitutional Rights in the process? I would feel better then.

Cool story.

Definitely a one off, though. I can't see it working if everyone tried it.

I remember when I was 22, stoned and drunk at a frat party....I walked the half mile home instead of driving. I got picked up for public intox....when I went in front of the judge the next day, he asked what I had to say for myself. I replied "I felt it was better to walk home than drive". The town I was in had no taxis. The judge looked at me and dismissed all charges.

There are some good law enforcement out there.

Well Looks like Barney Fife came out of retirement for a day .
So now does every one feel all gooie inside ooo how nice .
Now lets see the officer take pity and turn in his fellow officers who smoked a joint with him standing there .
The weed they confiscated from a guy they locked up no less .
Lets be real just people who are given authority and when you do that people take advantage of it .
This is why i would not be a cop . No way I would arrest my own kid for weed .
Now tell me they would ?
No one i repeat no one is free of this .
and this is giving them the benefit of dout .
So take your feal good mint because its the most you will get a mint .
Now back to our regular scagled mayhem

he had to write pity granted. how else would the person know that he, the leo, had the power to show pity or not show pity... how else would he had massaged his own ego? you think he'd just leave the vehicle alone... a 'pity' note was just what the doctor ordered to boost that esteem. one less gun hastily drawn...
a good day indeed.

The same kind of hateful rhetoric that got a few people shot today has also gotten a few LEO's murdered and injured the past few years!


Stay classy!

That sounds like the work of a small town cop-most of them are quite lenient and understanding.

Metropolitan cops could learn a thing or two from the small towns, a kind word and a stern warning works wonders as apposed to tasers and APC's.

However there is a darker side to rural cops and I've seen them at their best. One time my arms were searched for track marks and the coward overseeing the search said to me and I quote verbatim "if I see you in this town again i'll f**king jump you!"

The next time I saw him he was without a partner and he nearly soiled himself. Some cops have superiority complexes but some are genuine people persons, I would know because I once called one cop the sexiest cop in the world after some guy threatened to shoot her. She stood her ground and thanked me after I volunteered to escort her around town because it was late night Saturday and she was off duty and unarmed.

Her partner (not sure if police or husband) was grateful and she was fine.True story. I have respect for the police but respect needs to be given as well.
