  1. People have no respect for flashing lights on emergency vehicles, I watched in horror once as a woman drove her car around multiple fire engines police cars and PG & E trucks and right under the dangling power lines until they were actually resting on her car. You just can’t fix stupid.

  2. I am sure there is going to be assholes that will protest. They will say “black lives matter” and the officer did it on purpose. I hate people that disrespect our law enforcement. Sucks that this officer will now have to go through an investigation and it was not his fault

  3. Desk job? Have him sit at Dave’s Liquor in Antioch and issue hundreds of handicap violations. The lot can be empty and these low life’s will still take the spot. Many times I have seen the disabled wait for the spot. And yes…it’s only one breed.

  4. Simonpure the officer works for the city of Oakley not the city of Antioch you dipshit. And stop parking in the handicap parking when you’re at Dave’s picking up a 40oz of Old English and a bottle of Hennessy.

    • That’s exactly why I said “in Antioch” Is comprehension that difficult for you troll.

  6. Simonsaysimstupid. An officer that works in Oakley will NOT sit in a liquor store parking lot “in Antioch” and write handicap citations. If you don’t like what you see at Dave’s Liquor then go buy your liquor somewhere else! It’s that simple you dummy! Comprehend that an Oakley police officer will NOT work “in Antioch”!
