Remember the recycling theft ordinance that Raleigh passed at my prodding? Well, I’ve been looking the other way when I see obviously homeless people walking away with cans but there was one instance Friday that I could not let go.
A baby blue Cadillac was driving through the neighborhood with a handicap placard on the rear-view, a number of people inside, and the trunk open wide and stuffed from floor to lid with bags full of aluminum cans. I just couldn’t let this one go and called the cops. I don’t know if an officer didn’t find the car, wrote them a ticket, or simply let them go with a warning. I just know that what I saw was ridiculous.
