A few things jump out at me over this story:
- "Clinton has the handicapped tag because her husband suffered a stroke."
- "She displayed a handicapped tag prominently, locked her car and checked with a police officer who happened to be parked right behind her. He assured her the spot was legal."
- The "police had not kept track of where they had moved" her car.
- The car was a block and a half away.
That said, it serves her right. As commenters on the article have pointed out, while parking in a handicapped spot was legal because she had a handicap tag, the use of said tag is not legal because ... well ... she's not handicapped. If I had been the officer, I would have informed her of that little fact and had her move the car.
In which case, she most likely would have parked farther away and her car would have most likely not been moved.
Karma. She is a bitch.
