City Paper is not for tourists
Thank you Park Police: Independence Avenue is always a clusterfuck around rush hour. This afternoon was especially bad because of some lazy cops.
At around 4:38 p.m., four cops—Park Police and one other branch—parked a couple cars and blocked one lane. They then proceeded to get out of their cars and shoot the shit curbside. They had stopped nobody. They were just hanging out.
Meanwhile, the rest of us were stuck in gridlock. Man, I wish I had my camera handy!
