Good, now I can forge a handicapped certificate and park wherever I want.
It’s my free speech, ya see?
I believe the difference would be that using a handicapped parking spot would be using something that is not offered to you and is something you don't legally qualify for. If you faked your handicap and an establishment offered and told you to park in any spot, that would be "ok" (I don't agree with the morals, i'm just point out). Same thing with this guy. They offered him drinks. He didn't go in and get discounts b/c he said he was MOH. They offered. If the establishment was giving free drinks for MOH and he claimed it, then they could charge him with lying. There is a difference.
