A photo of an Orange County Sheriff's Department cruiser parked in a spot for handicapped motorists in front of a medical facility is raising eyebrows online.

Here is a larger view courtesy of the Facebook page Orange County, Ca COPWATCH:

It was apparently shot at Davitia Dialysis, which provides "a range of dialysis treatments and support services for patients living with chronic kidney failure." Based in Colorado, the company has two centers in Anaheim.

"Orange County COPWATCH was designed and intended both to promote public safety and to ensure that police officers remain accountable for their actions," reads the "About" page on Facebook, which urges members of the public to upload their own photos and videos. "ALWAYS FILM THE POLICE!"

The page solicited captions from followers after supplying their own: "Dude, it doesn't matter that we took the handicapped spot in front of the dialysis care center, those people don't have enough time to worry about it, and they are paying us! Lets just go eat BBQ"

One commenter wrote, "You have contacted the watch commander about the disregard this officer is clearly showing for the citizens of San Juan Capistrano right?" while another remarked, "Better doing that then hurting the people they are to protect and serve!"

"There are a lot more good ones than bad !" These are YOUR EXACT WORDS. (as recorded in YOUR comments) Then you follow up with "I don't call any of them bad ones" THIS IS WHY WE RECORD THEM AND PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF, SO WE CAN PLAY THE VIDEO EVIDENCE BACK FOR YOU, HOPING MAYBE YOU'LL SEE THAT YOU INDEED ARE A LIAR! Will it still be "God bless them" when they shoot and kill one of YOUR family members?

Thank you for confirming there are "Bad Ones" Pat. The department seems to ignore this. Can you please have the "Lot more Good Ones" take care of the "bad ones" as you call them. In the meantime they take our hard earned money!

They have to respect the law 1st! I refuse to respect a disrespectul cop who breaks the laws he/she is supposed to uphold! The good ones I respect. The bad ones should be fired & jailed.

Pat. I am thankful for the ones that protect me. But I am not thankful for the ones that are nothing more than thugs in uniform. There needs to be a higher requirement than being a C average student in school to become an officer. They are not elected officials. I did not choose the thugs in uniform that pretend to protect and only abuse their power.

Everytime I see a cop I see him break the law somehow, speeding, ignoring traffic signs and lights, talking on the cell, parking illegally, etc. This is all acceptable if there is an emergency but there never is. Blatant abuse of power.

Yesterday you were offering condolences to the fallen Laguna Beach motorcycle officer. I knew it would be back to the way it always has been with you all.

@Pat Politte Ha, I wish I could live a life so removed from reality and live in some gilded castle in the clouds where I can say "Fictional man I make wishes to, bless all the people who brutalize the good people of the Earth". Thanks for the laugh!
