    Yes it is and similar to the one that your Rep is fighting so hard against in towns like Baskin. While I'm in favor of what H.D. is trying to do, it is strange that he has not spoken out about the state funds made available to LSP and other law enforcement to assist them in giving out the "quota speeding tickets".

I know that is exactly what they want and they are able to take advantage of college kids because some of us don't have the time to go through this process.
    You should consult with Starr Jones on this issue because she is a LawYa

There are people hired to enforce the rules. These people are called Police. They get paid to enforce the rules. When you choose to break the rules, there is very good chance you will cross paths with these people. Don't be surprised when they enforce the rules, because that is what they are paid to do. Unless I am mistaken, Tech has no designated loading zones at any dorm or at University Park. I haven't seen any.
    What is at issue is if he was "parked" or not.

    Definition of "parking" under the La revised statutes:

    LA RS 32:1

    "(46) "Park" or "parking" means the standing of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, otherwise than temporarily for the purpose of and while actually engaged in loading or unloading merchandise or passengers."

I learned even recently they have been taking advantage of the poor gravel parking lot and giving people a ticket if they say you are past the "lines" of a parking spot.
    I hate this rule (my most recent school had it as well).

    The only possible reason for it is to make it easier on the decal checkers/ticket writers. I'm all for making life easier on security departments in areas where it matters, but this is just silly (assuming that the only reason is to make things easier on those checking for parking stickers).
    It comes down to this for me - the convenience (however slight) of those paying to be there (the students) should trump the convenience (when equally slight) of those being paid to be there (the decal checkers).
    This is really a tiny inconvenvience for drivers (how often is it really more useful to be backed in?), but it is also a tiny inconvenience for the police/ticket writers (if you can't see my sticker, look for it when you go down the next row or get out and walk around).

    Re: Tech Police

    Some cops are jerks and expend more energy punishing people than helping people. The one time I needed the Tech police to investigate an issue they put zero effort into it. My car was hit while I was in class and they basically told me "tough luck buddy."

    And yet they will jump through hoops to be a jerk about parking.....

    And the very short bald guy has some serious "little man" syndrome going on.

    Re: Tech Police

    Everyone is quick to hate the police. They do a job that most can't or won't do. Everyone gets pissed about a parking ticket, but has no idea about what else goes on around the Tech campus. What about the officer who talked a suicidal student out of doing it? What about the officer who stopped the bully from making a students college experience a living hell? What about the officer who caught the car burglars that Ruston couldn't, What about the officer who arrested the guy who was stalking a female student? What about the officer who takes drunk drivers off the roads before they can hurt or kill themselves or someone else. The old saying about before you judge someone walk a mile in their shoes comes to mind.

    Most people don't usually scratch unless it itches. If people are being critical its because they have earned it. The majority of the time they DO act like jerks.

    How many officers do you know personally? Maybe if people in the yard quit yelling "F*ck Tech Police" when a Tech Police Car rides by the Pike house they wouldn't act like jerks to you. There's a thought.
