He told investigators he has a "pet peeve" about illegal parking in handicapped spots and often walks around such cars looking for handicapped stickers and placards, sometimes taking photographs. He said he often sees people illegally parked in the handicapped spot at that convenience store, but the owner doesn't do anything about it.

Drejka said he saw McGlockton's car in the handicapped spot that day, so he went to its back and front, looking for stickers, which store security video shows. He said the car's windows were tinted, so he didn't know anyone was inside.

Jacobs, who was sitting with the couple's two younger children, partially put down her window and asked what he was doing. He said he told her it was "not very polite" to park in the spot and "she took that as an affront." He said that sparked an argument that got heated, with Jacobs saying "Do I have to get my man?"

Jacobs testified that Drejka had started pointing and yelling at her. She said she cracked the window to hear what he was saying and a screaming match ensued.
Drejka gave credible evidence of being an EDP and potential threat to the woman. Life hurts. It hurts more when you're stupid.

There is a lesson in that for all LTC's. LTC does not make you a cop, so mind your own business and don't run around looking for something to get involved in..

I had to look this up. Many of the other forum members may not be familiar with this acronym.

EDP = Emotionally Disturbed Person. This has been used by NYPD, NY EMS, and apparently others, since the above poster used it.

Thank you.

EDPs. Rarely a deadly threat but possibly a threat of some violence or harassment.
That is exactly why I carry mace AND a gun. Some might disagree but I'd rather just mace some EDP and walk away than have only a deadly weapon to defend myself and answer to a grand jury full of libtards.

Same here. The last thing I need is the legal/financial stress of using a deadly weapon. If it is unavoidable so be it but I sure as heck am not looking for a reason to use it. Nor am I looking to cause someone else to give me a reason to use it. I mind my own darned business and let the paid police handle parking issues and such.
