The following Perspective is an expression of opinion by the Editorial Board at WIS, and presented by General Manager Donita Todd:
Three separate incidents of law enforcement vehicles parked in no parking or handicapped spots got the online comment sections of our web site buzzing last week. Both the Irmo and Columbia police departments immediately took action by disciplining or ticketing the offending officers. The Lexington County Sheriff's Department, however, decided their deputy was not violating the law, but was instead parked in a so-called buffer zone.
All three photos of these parking infringements were taken by WIS viewers and posted to our Facebook page generating comments that ranged from pure outrage to sympathetic leanings such as cops should be able to park closer to buildings in order to do their jobs.
That's my perspective. Thanks for sharing yours.
