Today while waiting in a fully marked handicap parking space with my posted state of Illinois issued placard near the River Forest Public Library, I was approached by another, much older man who knocked on my window and asked me if I was disabled.
As a retired and disabled police 1st lieutenant, I was taken aback from this unknown stranger questioning me and my placard.
After 35 surgeries, including both knees replaced, right foot rebuilt and my left hip rotator cuff reattached, yes, I am qualified.
Enough of this harassment by the elderly River Forest poesy!
Shame on them.

Retired police lieutenant
