Yesterday I was having lunch at the local park when I heard an amplified voice. It was a police officer using his vehicle’s P.A. system telling a gentleman that his dog (beautiful German shepherd) had to be on the leash. The guy gave a sideway glance, ignored him with a smirk on his face and kept walking toward his vehicle. The cop repeated the warning, and the now official Asshole repeated his initial reaction. It felt like “So what are you gonna do?” and he was about to find out.

The cop turned his vehicle around and parked in front of me. He got out of his car and confronted Mr. Asshole, very politely about the dog not being on a leash. Mr. “A” began to complain and even used the “I see people with unleashed dogs all the time” doubling down on the stupid attitude. The officer then asked for ID and Mr. “A” initially said he did not have ID and then thoughtfully confessed he had it in his van. After retrieving it and passing it to the cop, he kept going back and forth about other people and their dogs and assorted BS while the officer checked him out on his computer.

“But I see people over there with unleashed dogs all the time!”

Since I had a better angle than Mr. Asshole, I could see the officer using his pen, figured somebody was about to get a ticket and this was about to get even funnier given the prissy attitude I have been seeing coming from the Idjit… and I was not disappointed.


Mr. Asshole was not happy about getting a ticket, and then he said something I was not expecting:

“It is because I am White and did not run, isn’t?”

Are my ear deceiving me? Is this guy actually using a Reverse Race Card like it was a game of Political Uno? Nope, he went on a tirade re-using the “other people are doing it so I should get a free pass” and the always favorite “You could have given me a warning instead” alongside with “I am going to court and fight this ticket!” and repeated the “It is because I am White and did not run” bit at least twice more and adding “If I ran away, you would have not bother chasing me and giving me a ticket” or words to that effect.

Oh yes, the officer was Black which made it even funnier and incredibly sadder for Mr. Asshole.

The cop remained at all times utterly professional in his dealings with Mr. Asshole. Bravo for him.

I believe that a simple attempt at de-escalation by Mr. Asshole, namely acknowledging the officer’s warning and making a half-hearted effort to restrain the dog would have saved him some money and aggravation. Instead, he will be at least $50 off and a lot of blood pressure up.

  1. people always say “you can’t judge a book by its cover”…. and the good book says “judge not”…. the evil Curby that perches on my right shoulder whispers “yup, look at the aging hippy liberal thinking laws don’t pertain to him”…. Happy Halloween m’fer… I can see it now, him at a gathering pontificating about racism and bad cops and how great biden is… and then amazed when laws actually affect him.and has to play “Im white”, no asshole, you broke the law and got caught.. I bet he mails in the fine….

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
