No parking zones in Vilnius now enforced by tanks

Vilnius (Lithuania) Mayor Arturas Zuokas tired of expensive cars being parked illegally on the streets of his city.

Rather than bother ticketing or booting them or having them towed, he commandeered a tank and had the driver roll right over a Mercedes S-Class, then greeted the perplexed owner by telling him, "Next time, park your car legally."

Please, nobody forward this to Michael Bloomberg, there's no telling what he might do in response.

It was a staged stunt to make a point. Besides, over there Mercedes are as common as Chevys' in Michigan.

Mo dry = spell check for "mopery".

I'd expect that the litigation expenses will grossly exceed any political benefit.

Crush the vehicle of somebody who *can't* afford legal counsel, idiot!

FWIW, I'd take that case (the disenfranchised driver) pro bono.

Let's start with the concept of trespass to chattel and move on to mo dry with intent to gawk, in the first degree. That's 30 days in the electric chair at a minimum!
