FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A man has been charged with murder after he stabbed another man to death during an argument over a handicap-parking space.

No one likes people who abuse handicap-parking spaces. But people in Florida will defend their proper use to the death, it seems.

There was already the guy in Clearwater, FL that was shot to death during an argument over a handicap-parking space, and now we have a Fort Lauderdale man getting stabbed to death over the same thing.

This latest incident happened on July 16 in the parking lot of Little Treasures Academy.

That’s where 40-year-old Oswald Zambrano had parked his SUV in one of the daycare’s handicap-parking spaces to pick up his wife.

Zambrano was sitting in his vehicle when he was confronted by 43-year-old Julio Ramos, who was not too happy about Zambrano being parked in the spot.

After accusing Zambrano of illegally using the spot, an argument ensued in which Ramos demanded Zambrano get out of his vehicle.

From looking at his booking photo, Ramos found he bit off more than he could chew when Zambrano obliged him.

I couldn’t find any details about what happened next, aside from Ramos ending the physical altercation by stabbing Zambrano repeatedly in the chest with a 4-inch folding knife.

Zambrano was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he’s been until last Thursday when he died from his injuries.

“He got a heart attack,” said Zambrano’s sister-in-law. “Everything started failing, his lungs, his kidneys is what [doctors] said happened.”

Zambrano is survived by his wife, a 22-year-old daughter, and two sons ages 13 and 9.

As for Ramos, he was arrested after the stabbing and has now been charged with second-degree murder. He’s currently being held without bond in the Broward County Jail.

I don’t have much sympathy for people who purposefully park in an idiotic fashion, but I don’t actually want them to die for their actions. People who enter a highway 15 mph below the speed limit, however… well that’s a different story.
