A derogatory,racist name for a police van. Used mainly in the U.S. When the Irish arrived they were feared by the Protestant and Presbyterian (mainly English and Scottish settlers) they were beaten and bullied and when they protested they were dragged off in police vans and beaten some more. Lots of silly people think that "Paddy Wagon" is acceptabe to Irish people. Well it's not...nor is Patties or Paddys Day. St. Patricks Day ...Please.
Irish-American friendship float in this years St.Patricks Day parade had "Paddy Wagon" in big letters on the sides of it. Grrrrrr!! Lots of my friends were very annoyed.
