Upper East Side Woman Ticketed For Using City Trash Can

• CBS News
An elderly Upper East Side woman claims a sanitation agent chased her, threatened her with arrest and slapped her with a ticket for putting day-old newspapers in a city trash can....
She said the worker demanded a form of identification and threatened to “put her away” if she didn’t comply.

Pitofsky said it took the worker 25 minutes to write the summons and when she complained that it would cost her $100,  she said he threatened to make it $300.

Society teaches you many things. When I was younger we learned to drink and drive and to throw the cans on the road. The only time we got busted was when we parked somewhere and acted "responsibly."  Maybe this lady learned to just loose her garbage somewhere other than a trash can.   It works for me.
