Police in the Orlando area have arrested a tow truck driver for apparently targeting the vehicles of LGBT people and illegally towing them during the annual Gay Days festival.

Jason Combs towed more than 100 vehicles between June 5 and June 9, primarily from the Westwood Town Center parking lot across the street from the Gay Days host hotel. His contract with Westwood had already expired. Those whose cars were stolen had to travel by cab to a towing facility 10 miles away, which is also illegal in Florida. 

Police said Combs and “spotters” assisting him allegedly kept watch on the area and towed the vehicles within minutes of visitors parking to visit shops and other establishments.

“Visitors would park in the Westwood Town Center at 6109 Westwood Boulevard (across from the event’s headquarters) and patronize various shops and restaurants there, only to emerge and find that their cars were towed,” the Orange County Sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post announcing the arrest. “We will not tolerate those who take advantage of our citizens or visitors.”

He was charged with 29 counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle and 60 counts of violating a county towing ordinance. Good riddance.

I don't know who Ayn Rand is. Should I change that or just let it lie?

Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.


I see no lies.
