    Saw this government employee park in the handicap spot, get out of the car and walk all around the store with no cane or any other walking device. Didn't even use a shopping cart.

    Would have to know the date, location and time to report it.

    Forget calling the .gov to report it, call the local PD and let them ticket the driver. Hard to see on the place if it is local, county or state GV though.

    Setting aside the entitlement aspect for a moment, what is a government employee doing shopping in the middle of the day?

    Well, it was on Saturday, so I don't know if he was working or not. Maybe the question should be, why is he using a government car for personal business.

    Government employees are typically allowed to eat lunch in the middle of the day, and allowed the option to purchase it from delis similar to those that are often located inside grocery stores. In addition, they are generally allowed to purchase snacks or drinks throughout the day. Furthermore, some government employees have jobs which require basic supplies such as pens or paper, and in the event an employee finds himself without such supplies en route to a meeting or other job function, it would be reasonable for him to stop and procure such supplies. Shall I go on?

    EDIT to add: I am even aware of cases where government employees have gone shopping for clothes during the workday, for perfectly legitimate reasons including clothing somehow being ruined prior to a meeting or an unexpected overnight trip.

    I would suggest following the advice on his bumper sticker.

    Why not switch to video mode on your phone, wait for the POS to come out of the store, and then ask them point blank why they are using a .gov vehicle on a Saturday, why they parked it in a handicapped spot, who they work for, etc. Then take the video file(s) to all the news stations. Be sure to video them getting into the car with a good shot of the blue parking spot and the license plate number.

    Did you even read the original post or are you just defending a government employee's actions, regardless of their validity?
