Went to the ER. Got yelled at for using the sidewalk. I wish all police officers a very pleasant fuck you.

Report them to your local government.

"we have investigated ourselves and found no wrongdoing"

[-] [email protected] 61 points 7 months ago

I didn’t say anything about going to the police.

OP has evidence. Go to your local municipal government and file a complaint. Add the photo. Now it’s documented.

Or do nothing at all about it and make overused statements on the internet. Idgaf

If they're anything like my local council, evidence is irrelevant. They'll say "we sent someone out to check and there was nothing there. No infringement notice has been issued."

What exactly do you think the local government will do about it?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 7 months ago

Something. Or nothing. But they’ll definitely do nothing if you don’t inform them about it.

Paper trails usually add up. They start seeing 100s of these complaints show up they usually have to do something, because by that point the news starts to get involved.

If anything, they'll forward the complaints to the police and let them "handle it". You have too much faith in the government

Ah yes, blocking a fire lane while impeding an accessible walkway. Top, men.

[-] [email protected] 51 points 7 months ago

Sorry, what reasoning did they give for this harassment? It's not like you were using a piece of pedestrian infrastructure for it's intended purpose or anything.

[-] Eheran 25 points 7 months ago

I too would like some context.

[-] [email protected] 38 points 7 months ago

Damn pedestrians, think they own the sidewalk! Rant, rant, rant

STOP RESISTING

It clearly was meant for parking. I mean just look how much space there is for this little car!

Cops will go out of their way to scrape even the smallest modicum of power they can find from the bottom of society’s barrel.

Were you on a bicycle?

I did not expect to see Böhmermann here, but I'm not complaining

Why the fuck am I getting a German ad?

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

The song is in German. But more importantly, why are you getting any ads? Use adblockers. No amount of convenience in any app you're using makes up for the inconvenience of having to watch ads.

[-] crashoverride 1 points 7 months ago

The only good one is blockda, which now of course you have to pay for

[-] [email protected] 1 points 7 months ago

What? ublock works great, you just need to use youtube in Firefox.

[-] crashoverride 1 points 7 months ago

On mobile without root it's the only option.

Here is an alternative Piped link(s):

Piped is a privacy-respecting open-source alternative frontend to YouTube.

I'm open-source, check me out at GitHub.

if only the timecode worked with that piped link ...

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

Sorry, what happened that meant you needed to go to the ER? Did the cops hit you?

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

Just stop being a carless peasant! /s
