From THE LOCAL (Germany):
Over the last six years a man in Germany's Harz region earned the dislike of his fellow residents by tattling to authorities about some 15,000 parking violations – but this week “parking ticket Horst” had to answer for a citation of his own. Horst-Werner Nilges was fined €10 (plus a €23.50 processing fee) for speeding 10 kilometres per hour over the limit in Pöhlde this March.
But the 56-year-old early pensioner didn’t want to pay, registering a protest instead. During two-and-a-half hours of proceedings at the Herzberg district court on Tuesday, the stickler for parking rules said he had not been driving too fast. Meanwhile his lawyer tried to convince the judge that speed camera photos should not be used as evidence.
But Judge Carsten Schindler rejected the appeal and told the tattletale to pay the fine.
COMMENT: I've always thought that priests should be given the authority to make arrests. Also we should be issued with our own glock pistols, for those occasions when perps try to resist arrest.
"It's a fair cop, bishop. You're parked on a double yellow line. So ask yourself, 'Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, bishop?..."
