When I go shopping I avoid handicapped spaces like the plague for two reasons. The first is that I feel for those who truly need those spaces to make it easier for them to get in and out of the parking lot. The second is I don’t want to get slapped with a horrendous fine. People should respect those two points even at a county fair in California.
The Department of Motor Vehicles conducted four sting operations at the Los Angeles County Fair. Their targets were those drivers who looked to game disabled parking places by the clever and dishonest use of handicapped placards. Anyone who was caught got nailed with a citation and deservedly so.
“We want the public to know that a person who is assigned a disabled parking placard is the only one who can legally use it,” said DMV Investigations Chief Tom Wilson in a statement. “Our goal is to achieve compliance through education and enforcement, and we ask those without a disability to save the space.”
“I’m glad they’re cracking down,” said Laura Romero of Lake Arrowhead. “Because a lot of people who have these cards shouldn’t have them.” And it’s not just California you see that in. I’ve seen it happen all over the country.
During the operations – which took place on four different September days – authorities checked 1,955 placards and issued 345 citations. That’s nearly 17 percent of them. What the heck is wrong with these people? Who does something like that?
Citations range from $250 per violation all the way up to $1,000. If I were the police, I’d go for the max on something like this. This disgusts me and I can’t believe people stoop this low. Check that, yes, I can.
“We get a lot of family members using their father’s or mother’s (placard),” said Commander Paula Lucero of DMV Investigations. “Sometimes they’ll flat out tell us (the placard owner is) at home, and they’re just using the placard to get better parking.” So much for honesty anymore. It looks to me as if the majority of those caught are the children of those who need those spots who figure they can just use the placard. SMH.
Most of the people caught would not talk to the media. Shocker there. But some actually did. “Ah, it is what it is,” said Will Espinoza, who claimed he was driving his brother-in-law’s vehicle and since it had a placard hanging from the rear-view mirror, he decided to use it. Dude, you do know that makes you look like a grade-A scumbag, right? Not to mention putting the size of your IQ in question.
“It’s like a speeding ticket, eventually you’re going to get one,” said Espinoza about the citation he received. Really? No, it’s not because most people don’t do something like that. I believe most people are good and don’t lie like this. Maybe I’m just naive that way. This is the kind of guy that thinks lying and stealing are normal somehow.
The Department of Motor Vehicles says that each of its 24 districts conducts a disabled-person parking placard enforcement operation at least once a month. “We really want to educate the public and let them know this is a violation,” said Lucero. “It’s a steep fine, and if you’re out there misusing it, we’re going to find you and give you a citation.”

The citations did not include people without placards parking in designated stalls because, according to DMV authorities, the operation took place in the disabled parking lot and to enter every person either had a disabled placard or disabled license plate.
This is the second year the DMV has done this at the L.A. County Fair. Last year, of the 2,754 placards checked during five operations, investigators caught 477 people misusing them, officials said. Gee, it’s a trend.
“If there is someone illegally taking a parking spot from a guest with a disabled parking placard, we want to know about it,” said Miguel A. Santana, Fairplex’s president, and CEO, in a statement. “Those spots are designed for those who need them. So, we are happy to assist the DMV in making sure everyone is following the law.”
In California, a valid placard cannot be used by anyone but the person it was issued to and they must be present when it’s in use. Additionally, individuals cannot display a canceled or revoked placard. That seems pretty straightforward to me and applies pretty much everywhere you go I bet. I still can’t wrap my head around anyone who would pull something like this.

FOX: Mexican Kidnappers Behead Businesswoman After Ransom Not Paid
The Democrats and the media call the border wall ‘immoral’. They say it is a fake emergency. The reason we need the wall on our southern border is a national security issue. It’s a matter of stopping vicious cartels, terrorists, and gangs from moving drugs, weapons, and people back and forth to sell to the highest bidder. It’s to stop criminals who have no regard for our laws and kill Americans whenever they can… or worse.
A Mexican businesswoman, unfortunately, provides an excellent example of exactly why we need that wall. She was kidnapped by a cartel. When her husband didn’t pay the ransom, they cut off her head and dumped her corpse in a garbage bag with a note. The body of Susana Carrera was found last Wednesday inside a bag in a parking lot in the coastal city of Coatzacoalcos in the state of Veracruz. She had been kidnapped a week earlier outside a friend’s house where she had gone to pick up one of her children.
The kidnapping took just minutes and Susana never even had a chance to scream. Shocking video shows how her kidnappers pulled her into a car. They grabbed her and quickly threw her into a car in a matter of seconds. This isn’t a one-off… this happens all the time in Mexico. One wonders when it starts happening more and more here in the US whether the left will even care. Perhaps after a few wealthy leftists have their heads cut off it will sink in.
The kidnappers left a note alongside the woman’s body, according to local media, which read: “This happened to me because my husband played the tough guy and didn’t want to pay my ransom.” You know that’s never the full story. The family was unable to raise the needed funds fast enough for the ransom according to the Heraldo de Mexico newspaper. The kidnappers reportedly asked for a ransom of 4 million Mexican pesos ($207,000). Most Americans couldn’t raise that kind of cash either.

Hours after her body was found, Carrera’s husband, Luis Manriquez, confirmed her death in a message on social media. “Thank you very much to everyone for your prayers and wishes for my wife Susana Carrera to return home. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to and she passed away.” That family is torn asunder and will never recover from this atrocity.
The husband and wife owned an aluminum company called Pezaliminio. It had an office in Coatzacoalcos. It’s unclear why the kidnappers targeted Carrera. The local media put out photos of Carrera’s body and a note. Prosecutors in Veracruz announced Monday that it had launched an investigation into how the photo was leaked to the media, which was probably taken at the medical examiner’s office. Since corruption is so prevalent in Mexico, that’s a no-brainer.

“The Office of the Attorney General of the state will not tolerate situations like this one, which constitutes a re-victimization and a breach of the duty of secrecy within the investigation,” prosecutors said in a statement. Yes, they will… just as authorities do in sanctuary states such as California.
No arrests have been made so far and there’s an excellent chance no one will ever be arrested for this crime. The number of kidnappings has reportedly risen in the city of Coatzacoalcos, with 49 reported in 2018. More than 160 homicides were reported last year. These are the kind of criminals that the left is welcoming with open arms here in the US. #WeBuildTheWall

Illegal Sentenced To 60 Years For Sexually Assaulting, Impregnating 11-Year-Old TX Girl
An illegal alien was sentenced to 60 years in prison without the possibility of parole following his conviction for continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14. The Illegal alien impregnated an 11-year-old girl.
The victim faced her abuser in a North Texas court during the trial, officials stated. The case began when hospital officials treated the 11-year-old as she was 19-weeks pregnant.
Star Local Media reported:
“This innocent child showed remarkable courage by naming the monster who assaulted her; he will never harm another child again,” Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis told the local news outlet.
Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez
In February 2018, medical professionals told police about an 11-year-old patient who was 19-weeks pregnant. The child disclosed that Lopez-Sanchez sexually assaulted her, and at the time of the offense, Lopez-Sanchez had ongoing access to the child.
Eli Molina of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County forensically interviewed the child, who described details of the sexual abuse. Child Protective Services investigated, and the victim and her siblings were removed from the home.
Last summer, at 12 years old, the victim gave birth. Plano Police Detective Kristin Nichols investigated the case and obtained DNA samples of the baby. After analysis, DNA confirmed Lopez-Sanchez was the father of the victim’s baby.
Breitbart News obtained jail records revealing that immigration officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations placed an immigration detainer on the migrant for being in the U.S. illegally.
The young girl told doctors that 37-year-old Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez raped her.
The Officials said he had continuous access to the child at the time. During the investigation, Eli Molina with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County interviewed the little girl and said she provided details of the sexual abuse. Children’s Protective Services caseworkers removed the victim and her siblings from the home.

To think that the Democrat party doesn’t want to protect the American people from these disgusting animals is quite disturbing. They wouldn’t care if this happened to your child.
