Gay Days 'predatory' tow-truck owner arrested (the witch hunt continues)
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 7/26/2014 | David Harris

Posted on 07/26/2014 7:01:24 AM PDT by spacejunkie2001

The owner of a towing company was arrested Friday and charged with illegally towing vehicles of people who took part in last month's Gay Days events in Orange County.

Jason P. Combs, 44, owner of ASAP Towing, faces 29 counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle and other charges. Deputies allege he towed more than 100 vehicles June 5 to 9 from a parking lot at Westwood Town Center off International Drive, which is across the street from the event's host hotel, Doubletree by Hilton. Combs didn't have an up-to-date contract to tow vehicles or have proper signage notifying motorists the lot was a tow-away zone, deputies said.

His attorney, R. David de Armas, said Combs did have a valid contract with the owner and only vehicles that were illegally parked were towed. de Armas also said the fact that it happened during Gay Days was irrelevant.

What is strange about saying “gay” is a protected minority, is that someone has to declare themselves to be gay.

I always wonder if some people claim to be gay, in order to benefit from affirmative action programs, or file lawsuits claiming unfair treatment for one reason or another. How do you know anyone is gay unless they claim so publicly????

It would be simpler to tow the cars and then blow them up somewhere without explanation. Harder to trace.

“Tow truck owner arrested for towing illegally parked vehicles”. There fixed the headline.

Reminds me of the old story of the kid who didn’t want to be drafted into the Army. When he got to the induction center he raised a ruckus and told the sergeant that he was gay and shouldn’t be taken. The sergeant walked to the front of the group, dropped his skivvies and said “Come here, young man, and prove it.”

You noticed that also? I hired over 50 engineers over the last two years for a project and not once was it mentioned on an application, job description or in and interview.

Seems like just another problem the Government created so they could create a solution for their voting block.

Argument appears. To be whether he had a contract to tow and if signage was up where he towed. I have seen this happen where unethical towing companies do this, hold the cars for hundreds in towing fees. The fact that it was a ‘gay’ celebration is not the relevant thing. Could have just as easily been any other large activity.

I’m sure Eric Holder will be sending a team to investigate.

I’ve heard of a commander getting reeeal close to a `queer’ soldier and demanding proof.

“Uh, duh, well ah, sir, I’m uh, I’m not really queer. I just wanted out on a Section 8 discharge (undesirable).”

“Report back to your platoon sergeant, mister. Any more trouble out of you and I’ll start a rumor that you really are queer. You won’t be able to close an eye inside those barracks!”

I learned this week that some blathering idiot I work with is a crossdresser. I was even shown pictures.

So if I don’t embrace this clown’s bizarre and perverted lifestyle, I should be scorned? Geezzzzzz... these people are freak shows.

I’ve been thinking alot lately of the story of Sodom & Gommorah in the Bible and it strikes me that we’re doing the same thing in this society as it pertains to APPEASEMENT of gays.

In the story, the homos are banging on the door demanding the angels come out so they can have sex with them and the guy offers, meekly, his daughter, trying to appease them instead of crushing them. We’re doing the same thing; appeasement.

Yes, you did fix the headline. Thank you.

One of my bumper stickers asks:

"Tow truck owner arrested: towed illegally parked vehicles that belonged to litigious, perputually offended minority group"

No doubt. Good is being called evil and evil is being called good.

'Some folks prefer parking in the wrong spot.'

Didn't they tell the Gay Days folks to park in the rear?

I like that. Pretty much sums it all up.

Just drive until you see some drug dealers and drop them right in front of them. Problem solved.

"...predator towing?"

So now we can put "predator" in front of what ever law enforcement there is and get away with it? So can now go out and commit any crime and if I'm caught, I can say it was "predatory enforcement?"

How do you even know that the claim can even be backed up. However, getting a little serious, very few people have interest in doing homosexual behavior, so that’s the reason homosexuality comprises such a small fragment of the population.

It’s obvious a lot of people here have never lived in a city. There definitely is such a thing as predatory towing, in Chicago there is even a song about it, the “Lincoln Park Pirates”. There is a lot of money to be made by unscrupulous Tow operators. The Gay Days bit is silly, but if a lot is not posted, the cars shouldn’t be towed.

Exactly...we actually use the words, “Sodomite” and “Homosexual” in our household. I have never met a homosexual that was truly “gay”. They are unhappy, depressed, medicated, given over to perverse affections. But our Lord Jesus died to save them from their destruction! I hope they listen!

I don’t think anyone’s denying that there’s predatory towing; that happens to be their actual nature.

The story is about blaming the tow truck driver for being anti gay just because he towed cars.

I read it as a mocking gesture of graciousness... he offered *women* to the sodomites, and they were NOT amused. Kind of like offering jobs to lazy entitlement ingrates - the offer may be technically valid, but it will be predictably rejected, as it only makes 'em mad.

As was mentioned up thread, some people *want* to park in the wrong spot. Lot's "gracious offer" highlighted that fact.
