Tow-truck driver gets 26 years in death over parking boot - Post and Courier:
"Olivera was dropping off Christmas presents at his brother's house in Bluffton and parked on the street because the driveway was full. The homeowners' association doesn't allow parking on the street, and Oates put a boot on the minivan.
Olivera and his brother pleaded with Oates to remove the boot and let them move the van. Olivera showed that he was carrying a handgun but put it away after his older brother told him that it wasn't necessary, according to his brother's testimony.
While Olivera's brother tried to remove the boot, Oates shot Olivera six times, including five times in the back, according to prosecutors."
So here we have HOA craziness combined with gun craziness. An awful combination.
