And welcome back to the show on this since Thursday afternoon some thunder and rain outside of our studious in downtown you might be in some of that rain or rain somewhere else it says that time of year. But sure you turn your headlights on a simple thing I'm studio for Angela today and all this week I took the ice bucket challenge AJ -- from our sister station B 97. A challenge we accepted the challenge I did it this morning right in front of Lucy's retired surfers bar and restaurant. A job to -- in downtown new world it's I want to -- -- Herbert says Carmen and everybody there who helped us do this. Our director George Steiner also Ian oaks cinematography. -- some so many people to think. It turned out to be -- and I had no idea it was gonna take that. That kind of breath away from me and I I we. As you'll see in the video it's it's on our website at WW dot com mysterious group blog today ice but the challenge except through the full video there. It literally. Took my breath I wish I was unable to speak. I don't know that might seem difficult to -- from -- I I literally physically could not talk that's how cold. And I shocking it was to to my -- but I wanna think Lucy's for helping make that house I want to make sure had a really big block it actually we had several. But that is on a website to take a look at it and they share with others here's IW a -- a pretty -- up people this afternoon. Should businesses and shoppers from walking around with rifles strapped on their shoulders. And we got a picture of somebody on our our our FaceBook page is walking around Kroger now we don't have a Kroger in this area but Kroger is the largest supermarket chain in the country. And Kroger is the most recent company to. Face pressure from consumers saying we want you to band people walking around. Even affairs open carry laws in the state which -- did and people walking around with rifles. This guy's walking around shopping with a rifle strapped on his shoulder. And it just it seems to me like a guy like -- is showing off and not relieve. Not really carrying it to protect himself in the grocery store you know realize that somebody can get. You know upset because you. You know you get in their way in the aisle or something but I can't see that you really need that is protection and in a grocery store. And had a couple people respondents say that it seems like if they saw somebody like that they would think this person is about to to cause trouble. So this is one of the things we're talking about that's our Debbie give you a pretty general people give is your opinion by going to our web site WWL. Dot com -- continue to talk about Ferguson. And again this is just such a microcosm of race relations in America are also talking about the other video video surfaced. With the Saint Louis police officer shooting and killing a man who is acting. Erratically and he is a wielding a knife. He does approached a police officer. I understand the police officers. Are trained to protect themselves as they should be I can't speak from the standpoint of a police officer -- as as I watch the video. Again I'm not addition I just being honest about my perspective as a citizen but I'm admitting that it's my perspective as a citizen not as somebody's been trained in law enforcement. And and you don't we look at this as. When we look at it videos like this as citizens. We don't see ourselves as targets. Like police to. Police officers are targets. Every day they they're they're on the job. The whole time there on the job the two markets and so -- way of thinking is it is different. If you. If you want to lower your chances. Of being. Shot. Or beaten by a police officer. And even if they're wrong. You need to pay attention to them. And be respectful in the field. If -- wrong maybe there's another time. To challenge them for example. In court. So -- talking about this -- other video but I also went head to the conversation a friend of mine on Monday. She got a parking ticket she'd come down to it have watched history. She got a parking ticket she was parked at a meter. Not only was she parked at a meter downtown in the CB -- But there was also time left on the meter. She got a parking ticket for parking in handicapped spot it. Now. Is it easy to challenge a ticket. Or we get into the port I know this was a problem in New Orleans in in the mid nineties. Where. There were. They were meter maids who were far far too aggressive. And never giving out tickets to people who didn't deserve them and it was easy to pay the ticket. But it was challenged it. Have you gotten a ticket that you don't think was justified and I mean and be honest if if if you park and the Demeter runs out. You deserve a ticket. Even if you think well and they just could give me a couple more minutes if you deserve the ticket that's it we're talking about. But are people getting tickets. That they don't deserve flight like my friend and again she's gonna have to try to. Challenge this and it may be more trouble to challenge it. And to pay it and that means that the the city. And the meter maids they're the ones that have the that wasn't at the event. If you wanna join us with your story comments about any we're talking about our numbers 2601870.

Unfortunately during that acute it would in the object model prosecuted. Someone walked up to it and -- in Maryland on its potentially prevent children as walker -- The people that wanna get children you know it's a bit -- -- You know I have a feeling that Sarah when I was attacked him and -- -- you know they they patted me down and they were they were touching my wallet in my front pocket my cellphone in my back pocket I'm kicking I'm fighting back as best I can I'm on the ground -- and they're put -- -- -- -- won't listen let's see what you -- On. They grabbed my briefcase which he could have a laptop in addition some papers are -- for work so I wonder if they were looking for a gun. The group out of business to pan and and should there should we talk about the work around -- -- managed what you know. Talk resentment people work -- -- -- but it is -- gone. That was spilled out of the movement to some terror SP -- -- well. -- and it's you know that's the responsibility of donors who don't take care of their goddess. It's prevention and work remotely -- and they are not. It is. District west of there and walked. But -- of the -- on the today it would just it was like the shooting at alien got -- -- -- -- total while. I'm glad I could relate to call the show enough I'm sure your prayers hopefully your purse will be answered. Here's it's actually got a ticket yesterday the meter had a -- jammed in the slot he was the only spot available. You know that's something else to consider if the if the meters broken should you have a right to park there. I I think so it's up to the city to fix the meter. Here's a text if she parked in handicapped. Spot she deserves it. No she was parked in a meter and there was money left in the meters so why did she get a ticket for violating handicapped spot top and a friend of mine is there a problem with getting. Unwarranted parking tickets in downtown New Orleans it's part of what we're talking -- I'm -- differential and we'll be right conservative Euro. This is another one of my favorite brands today this is. And it's fun. By a -- -- more ice code for Angela a still treading on our web site is this to blog from yesterday media faults at Ferguson. And it really challenges us as an audience to accept responsibility for the way the media handles a lot of things you can read that blog and share with others UWB real dot com. Also treading as the -- blog today ice bucket challenge accepted the full video and -- -- challenge which it took earlier today in front of Lucy's. Downtown. I get except Texan I mentioned a moment ago a friend of mine got a ticket. -- into an analyst at Michigan and a parking ticket to New Orleans. She was parked at a -- you got a ticket for parking in handicap spot she still have money and getting text here when she was parked in handicapped spot she deserved it. If she was parked in handicap spots that she's not handicapped that's against the law -- it scares me. How people don't actually listen and as scary thing is they think they -- Here's another text well if there was still time on the meter did she leave something on the dash to let. If you put money in a meter you don't lead the ticket on the dash. One more time. I'm just asking the question are there and justify tickets being given out in New Orleans. This was a big problem in the mid nineties. A friend of mine got a ticket. She had money left on the meter. She got a ticket for parking in handicapped spot. It wasn't a handicapped spot it was a meter with money left and it. Now she like many others would face the issue of OK is it worth it to challenge this or should I just pay it. And it should never be it should never be worth that to just pay it. That gives the city unfair advantage. And that's not fair to. To citizens if you get a if you get a ticket. And you deserve it well -- what. But if you don't deserve the ticket is that is the city extorting money from you. By assuming that you're gonna pay the ticket because it's yeah it's gonna be too much trouble and and to which of Obama for yet. To challenge. A prevent ruthlessly year and a BW out. Right I'm good Leslie. -- at that time. Anyway. -- I -- they are really ain't. I have a situation on the ice plant. -- about -- -- on leg apart. And there are lately not there in the future. Right there -- my -- -- my. And that -- way. I became a degree. Heat in the light. And as well -- -- way he'd try. And you can't change. In front of art. Now a concrete in about sixty -- And and -- end up. Quite yet well acts and an IQ. And I don't yeah that's spot. You Whitney. In Cuba I do believe. Any and and I made it. But. I don't know. But did you take -- -- and -- -- The thing is it impossible -- -- a date. And I maybe in another eight tying a record here. I'd hate it ended it in fury you know I know a pact that would not beating. He wouldn't -- it in any debate. At all but they'll light that. -- It is it is infuriating and and that's it if it happened that way that cop had a really bad attitude and cops should not have that kind of attitude. You have a right to question. I got a ticket when I was in in Portland and I went to court and and challenged -- they reduced it to by half but it's like I went I went to court and I found it interesting that there seems to be this assumption that the police officer his word is more respected in court in my word. And it shouldn't be that way because police officers like to. So we should both be respected equally and I didn't get that depression court I I drew a diagram of of why I got the ticket and that was our pass in front of me that I. I'm I'm convinced that he. He captured because I wasn't going that fast and I did go to court and they reduced the fine from a 150 did to simplify -- -- that can be a miner it was a minor victory but. Steal my -- The question is it legal -- up there to -- -- future. -- Well I'm sure they can can do that let's say I've got to get to a break I'm glad you called -- -- thanks for listening if you're -- stay with -- if you wanna join us with your story. Our numbers 2601878. Toll free 8668890. Sanity and -- -- number six of the 87. Nobody should get tickets unfairly in this was a big topic when I was on the air in the midnight -- on Sunday but he -- the is this another big problem in downtown New Orleans are you getting tickets that are not justified. I'm -- differential -- we're coming right back with more here's a WW well news updates with John -- Some of the Texan I'm getting are just absolutely making me laugh. You don't quite often. I use real life experiences. It happened indeed that happens people that -- -- to talk about -- to talk about issues. And I know that New Orleans in the past has had a major problem with overly aggressive. Meter maids and get tickets that are that are not deserved mean remember in the mid ninety's I would see a meter -- beating on the meter. That was close to two running out so she could get a ticket. And if I'm not mistaken at the time meter -- were paid based on how many tickets they gave out not whether they were justified or not. So since somebody I know this is first hand experience and a walk rhetorical art. I should get a parking ticket in the CVG. Money left in the meter and she was given a ticket for parking in handicapped spot. It was a meter it wasn't handicapped spot. So I simply -- the question is this a problem in New Orleans again.

You get paid the same to the right one ticket or if we -- Now what what's the what's the biggest error reaction that you gets from so it was the most common reaction you get when somebody's approaching your -- you when you're already writing the ticket.

National Guard troops are being withdraw now from Ferguson and things have calmed down and hopefully things stay that way here's a RWW project my opinion poll this afternoon. Should this this is -- shoppers from walking around with rifles strapped on their shoulders we had the picture. For shopper and Kroger location which is the largest supermarket chain of the country that's their conversations going on on our FaceBook page -- W radio. -- 28% say no businesses. Should not ban people walking around. With rifle strapped to their shoulders and 70% say yes they should. Here's a Texan reads I was in of all I wanna get to this other text here referring to that went. I and that somebody really nice earlier today and she says driving practically I've met I met a listener to dispute show off from Cleveland and aimlessly and and her daughter is going to Tulane. Educating and he would get her daughter settled -- for the new semester and she actually came out for that in the ice ice -- challenge that I did it it Lucy she saw it on on FaceBook and actually showed up for today not by an intern. I'm -- was so great to meet you she's driving back to. She's driving practically noticeable are you from here to not distinguishing to your show because it keeps me in touch -- New Orleans which is where my daughter's. Here is attacks I was at a meter downtown sitting in my -- trying to get out of the parking spots but could not due to traffic. My glitter was on the wheel which turned trying to get out while I was trying to get into traffic the time expired the meter maid walked up and -- a ticket. For being in the parking spot without time that the tickets. That the tickets because people. Who witnessed the event. -- K -- -- against HD challenged ticket interest. So some people get tickets. It or not really justified -- that's. That they should happen but we just had a somebody who writes tickets say they sometimes they make mistakes from -- Casey under the WL. -- -- Eight are. Yeah it's all about the architect. Or. -- Aren't -- even at me. -- -- We go to -- Allah but apparently. And in -- -- And they are. Loading. It should be all I. And who would get a check it literally. Oh. And loading now a company. That Pakistan. Would review it today then. You. There are quietly and -- contract it out by a company Chicago. And -- spoke earlier out of respect for -- much because. You don't regret. They don't get a bit. That's the misconception. People at all. -- it this year the company. Whether or not. -- They were there about it good or not they get it they got back there they got two dollars -- ticket. But it was a valid -- -- -- But it it was an NC I think that's rule but he not not -- could not at a court. Quite had to go to court -- to -- And the granite aptly says. It under now. Quietly. Aren't. You. Europe. And you know island. Ordered. And the -- Quote he'd get it. You know -- okay -- but it took it took outwards and not. You know to sit in that court. And it and -- and out and pitch -- -- man. What company logo on the side. And that doesn't -- maybe you could make it more a year now become a struggle -- -- As a great man with a black vote. And maybe you should make it more clear that judge oh. Casey -- I appreciate you sharing your story with us are prepared got to get to a break here. You know it's unfortunate that some people get tickets that they don't that they don't deserve an and that does happen the problem is. It is. It is so much trouble to to challenge the ticket in the in the lives of so many people that have to undergo challenged ticket. And so that gives the city an unfair advantage because a lot of people are gonna pay a ticket. Rather than challenge because of the troubles so it should be very easy to challenge tickets I haven't gotten it taken so long I've got by him and I have no idea.
