Wow I just watched that again and realized how retarded that lady was. Obviously they were doing it to ruffle some feathers, but guess what? If you park your car within a foot of the curb like a capable human then you wouldn't get a ticket.

Also, guess what's cool about America? You can propose changes to local ordinances! That may be a new concept for most people since many don't even understand how the government really works but complain about how their rights are being infringed. So stop complaining about how America is becoming a "police state", while you do nothing about it. If you really care you would be working to have the laws you complain about changed through the proper channels, not just shouting about it.

Stop making a huge deal about it just because you were the one who got ticketed. If you didn't get ticketed then that wouldn't be very just, would it?

TL;DR: Get over it.

The cops will soon find out that the are in the end, hired by these people to protect them. If they spend their time with three officers ticketing cars, there are obviously too many on the force. Some will be fired. I think they deserve it.

Lived in 9 different states in the past 10 years, and although I never got further north east than Virginia, I got a ticket in every one of these states. Allow me to adjust my statement.

I was pretty sure this went out of style over ten years ago for everyone but hot females.

I'm sure it was a complete coincidence that they decided to stomp hard on the evil crime of parking too far from the curb right when people were gathering to take action against an abuse of the law by the police.

A good cop understands the difference between the spirit and the letter of the law. Enforcing the law out of vindictiveness alienates the citizenry; exercising a little magnanimity, on the other hand, can go a long way in terms of good public relations.

And this is definitely *not* good public relations.

"How many times have you gotten pulled over for speeding and been let go?"

"Never. I won't go into how much money that has cost me, but I was pretty sure this went out of style over ten years ago. I don't know anyone who's been pulled over for speeding and not picked up a ticket."

I know people that less then 5 years ago have been pulled over in Rochester for speeding with an expired registration and inspection and not gotten a ticket. And I've had almost the exact same situation happen to me not that long ago. It may just be where I'm from but just cause you get pulled over here doesn't instantly mean a ticket.

The cops pick and choose when and what laws they want to enforce. If you're a middle class average joe and your vehicle or home gets burglarized they won't do anything even with a full description of the offenders and a license plate number. Had a vehicle broken into 4 times, same vehicle same city, 1 occasion had description of the offenders and make/model/plate on their vehicle. Cops did nothing. Other time made them send out crime scene people and had them take finger prints. Cops refused to run the prints and did nothing. My car had blow out spun out on the freeway, no cop saw it, somebody called it in, I wasn't even driving, cops pull up I'm in other vehicle, got arrested and charged with DWI. Theres your so called justice people.

Batmanners-"Enforcing a ridiculous law."

Parking laws are ridiculous? Ever seen the danger of going around someone double-parked or who's sticking out into traffic?

If you can't get within a foot of the curb, you don't need to be driving. Or do you want there to be no specific unit and leave to the descretion of the officer? Hell, you're pissed at the officer's descretion when there IS a specified unit. You'd really be upset if there weren't. (It basically boils down that YOU don't want a ticket..that's what's unfair.)

Batmanners-"but that is not the point of a police officer."

Sorry, you do not get to determine what is 'the point' of a police officers. That's what the law is for. IT determines the job of the officers.

These people are complaining when the officers don't follow the law (in their eyes) AND when they do follow the law.

Seems to me they just want to complain.

mykunter-"MeGrendel is a cop."

MeGrendel is a Research Chemist and Graphic Designer. He also understands the law.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Not liking a particular law is no excuse. Complaining about officers not following the law, and then complaining when they do enforce the law, is asanine.

While the cops were within their rights to ticket all these people this is clearly an abuse of power. How many times have you gotten pulled over for speeding and been let go? If they can disregard what I consider a more dangerous infraction it’s obvious they’re going out of their way to harass these people, not to enforce the law.

The cops said at one point that "someone complained about the parking" and frankly, I believe it. It wouldn't surprise to me find out that they were the ones who called them in the first place. Just to try to get more attention.

Did they also tell the cops to bring rulers and 4 squad cars? In Rochester they don’t even use that many officers for a DUI stop. There are streets far worse and more trafficked then this that they could have focused on. Why waste time and effort on this street? Because they had a vendetta and it’s that simple.

Enforcing a ridiculous law, or being bullies who wrongfully arrest people on their lawns, it seems to me that the entire Police Dept of this city is VERY unprofessional and childish.

Yes it's okay for a police officer to enforce any and all laws he pleases, but that is not the point of a police officer. Giving people tickets like this is not "Protect and Serve". It's bullying.

I've no problem with authority, but I have a problem when a PERSON, appointed to protect the citizens of a city, can become the person who bullies these citizens. It's absolutely ridiculous. Police should have no ticketing power. I don't know who thought it was a good idea to give these cops the power to ticket people, but they misunderstood the point of a Police Officer. If I'm in a crisis, and I need the Police's help, I don't want to be scared of them, I need the knowledge they will protect me from anything and everything I may need protection from.

Scrodo-"While these people may have been "technically" breaking a law..."

Hint: 'technically breaking a lawa' = breaking the law = citable offense. These people have no reason to complain.

Scrodo-"When was the last time you saw a cop with a ruler writing citations for this? Never."

If there's a law on the books, it's been enforced. So your 'never' is bull.

So, you're upset that the police arrested a lady for NOT breaking a law (you think), and now you're upset because the police didn't let people get away with breaking the law.

Hypocrisy much?

@5Cats

In the first one, while the officer did not handle it well, he was well within his rights to ask the lady to NOT skulk behind him. He did NOT ask her not to film. Plus we do not know what went on before the camera rolled.

agree that both times the cops were being ridiculous, however, they were right. In the first scenario, it could have been for the protection of the man being arrested, it could have been for her safety if they felt something could escalate and she'd be caught in it or it could have actually been for his safety. It was nighttime and she was standing behind him while he was trying to arrest/apprehend/etc. another person. In all fairness, he wasn't telling her to stop filming, just to step inside and no one knows why he wanted her to do so
The second scenario- again, I agree the cops were being ridiculous and petty and revengeful, however, they didn't technically do anything wrong. I thought the girl filming the video was making herself look stupid. The cops already looked stupid by having several cars and cops out for parking violations but then she had to pull out a camera and start in "You have a ruler?!?!?!?111!!!!" And he did
