Authority Position

You almost have to feel sorry for Rocco Martinez. He got a video of a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer allegedly dismissing a parking ticket for some DVD bootlegs. He went to the PPA's executive director and tried to sell it to him, assuming the people in Philly government were corrupt enough to go for it. Unfortunately for Martinez, the city has gotten less corrupt in the last few years so the exec director set up an FBI sting. Now Martinez is probably sitting in jail confused by this integrity at the top. We know, Rocco. It's hard to get used to. [City of Philadelphia]
