Amen. Cops on duty get a meal break, but they have to be near the car in case all hell breaks loose and they get called off the meal break. They should not be even a block away from the car, and they don’t have a firehouse-quality kitchen. So unless they are limited to the Malibu Diner and the Jefferson/Newark Dunkin Donuts (are there any other eateries with parking lots?), they will have to park the car as best they can on the street. They are not endangering anyone where they are. I could easily walk across the street or turn an ambulance around the corner with no problem where they are parked.

While I get just as pissed off as the next person about the abuse of gold shields in personal cars, I would not begrudge an officer on duty a fugazy parking spot for a decent meal.[/quote]
I agree with not parking a block away. But come on there were three spots on the same side of the street that were 2 spots from the corner.It creates a unsafe condition. Tell it to mother that is walking there kid to Wallace or for that matter anywhere in that area when they get struck because of lack of visibility stepping off the curb because the patrol car is in the crosswalk.

[quote comment=”134259″]Does this person who posted this picture know if the officer was on a call or anything like that? Obviously the person who posted this picture could care less if the officer was on a call, as long as this picture gets bad reactions then the picture served it’s purpose. Maybe the officer was on the side street in a residence on a call or maybe on Willow Avenue itself in one of the buildings on a call. No, the poster says it was parked across the street from Rosarios so that’s all that counts.[/quote]
While I agree with Antinucci somewhat. I have witnessed 2 officers walk from the there patrol car parked in the same location into Rosarios and sit down for lunch. I happened to go there for lunch at the same time. There were 3 unused parking spots on willow that they could of used. Moreover the patrol car was creating a hazard for motorist making a right turn from willow to 12th st. It is great that there is finally a police presence uptown but to pass up 3 unused spots and park illegally is unbelievable.
