Cop tickets a man for washing his car in his driveway

In New York, on Long Island, it’s obvious that this cop has nothing to do.

A man is getting ready to wash his car, it’s sitting in his driveway. Apparently one of his neighbors doesn’t like him much so the neighbor called the police. An officer shows up and tells him, among other things, that he can’t wash his car in public view.

We’ve got some issues with this.

First, we’re glad we don’t live on Long Island for a number of reasons aside from the fact that it’s going to be 70 today at our house.

Next, apparently the “Nanny Virus” that has infected Bloomberg’s New York City has made its way up to Long Island. Since when is washing a car in your driveway a public nuisance?

Then there’s the cops. They have nothing better to do than write tickets for this crap? If that’s really the case it’s time Long Island laid off some cops.

And finally, the neighbor. He’s a jerk.

Time for another cup of coffee.

    Apart from the fact that Warner brought this up last week, I would point out that the cop looks like he is spoiling for a conflict. He is looking for the guys in the driveway to cross the line and comes close to daring them to do so.

      Yeah Warner covered this last week.

      It’s odd that with everything going on in the world, the few Wizbang writers can’t keep from covering the same minor incident.

        Yeah maybe next Michael will tell us about a movie that no one called racist but those darn liberals probably would have, if they’d thought of it. Or something.

        Funny that you deem it important enough to chime in.

        • Commander_Chico

          I am like you, I “chime in” on everything.

        Meanwhile Chico cant keep up with his end of a debate.

        As I said before, try answering what people say, and not try to put words in others’ mouths, debate goes better” – Chico, Famed Wizbangblog poster

        How about practising what you preach Chico.

        1 Oprah,the Lamestream media, Reid, Pelosi, and other major dems have called people racist simply because they oppose Obama’s
        policies. Yet when they oppose those same policies when espoused by Bill, Hillary. Reid, Pelos, Gore, Kerry, etc etc they weren’t considered racist then by Oprah, etc etc (I don’t know isn’t good enough)
        Do you feel that it is because the left is just playing the race card?

        2. People were called racist anarchist terrorists when they tried to delay Obamacare yet Al Franken who did the same thing wasn’t called Racist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the call just playing the race card because that is all they have?

        3. People were called racist anarchist terrorist when they called for the delay of all or part of Obamacare and Obama who is unconstitutionally doing the same thing is not called a racist anarchist terrorist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the calling are just playing the race card because that is all they have?

    Can’t arrest criminals in the greater NYC metro area, because they will claim police brutality and calls in the ACLU and the city puts the cop goes on suspension. Harassing a law-abiding suburbanite, because he is washing his car in his own driveway; that is on his property is okay. I am thinking that someone needs a refresher course in civics and it is not the guy washing his car.

    Believe me, if my neighbor did this. He’d get a beat down from a “masked assailant” on his way out his door in the morning.
