Safety, not donuts

can you see the swat guys with automatic weapons in the background?  And this is the Carrolltons Police's LOGO!Hey y'all, if you're looking for a safe place to raise your kids, may I suggest Carrollton, Texas? I'll tell you, Carrollton Texas has got to be a really safe place to live. How do I know that? Well, recently, I got a ticket there, for parking in a handicapped zone. In an industrial park. Outside a business closed for the night. In an empty parking lot. At 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning (or rather, Friday night).

Yep, a town where cops are handing out tickets like that must have no other, more important, crimes going on anywhere, so it's got to be safe. Right?

It would be safe, except everyone's afraid of the cops.

Not afraid. Irritated. The nice judge did give me a break on the ticket, though, down to a mere 62 bucks, rather than 135.

Annoyed by your friendly public servant, are you?
