Double Standard? Or Not?

From the comments:
  • Why does J-FED have out of state plates and no city wheel tax sticker on his Harley. Where is Big Bird when you need him. He was overheard saying that he has a house out of state. Does this mean I can now register all my vehicles to my place in AZ and not buy anymore wheel tax stickers? IAD can you confirm this. A lot of people were taking pictures with their cell phones. Someone please post.
Going back over the archives, it would appear that J-Fed's first official day in office was Friday 01 February. The City requires you to reside within the City by your date of hire. According to another commentator, you have six months to transfer over all your plates and stickers (state law and local ordinance). That'd be 01 August.

Anyone over in Auditing and Internal Control keeping an eye on this? Big Bird?

New residents to the state have 90 days to obtain a drivers license and 30 days to obtain valid Illinois registration. Since J-Fed is a city employee, and all city employees must reside in the city (which is in Illinois...duh) he should have an Illinois DL by now and Illinois tags on any vehicle he owns.

Any resident of the state (J-Fed is a resident of this state) who owns an operates a vehicle in the state of Illinois must register that vehicle in the state. (meaning a second home outside of the state doesn't meant shit if the vehicle is here!) As a city of chicago resident, he must have a wheel tax medalion on his motorcycle as well as Illinois tags.

So, bottom line: J-Fed is in violation of Rule #1 if he's operating his motorcycle without Illinois plates and without a wheel tax medalion.

Who's gonna have the balls to get a CR on J-Fed?

I will write the tickets. What the F@#& can he gonna do to me? I've worked for AZ-Tricky plus numerous other foreskin flickers.

Whatcha gonna do to me? I work '99 most of the time in a shit district with merit sgts, a merit Lt, a Capt who is obviously merit and a Commander who has risen thru the ranks meritoriously(sp). Hell I was in the academy longer than my Commander was a LT.

If someone sent a message on his blackberry that said "BOO" he's shit his pants.

Come on J-Fed park that piece of over-priced- status symbol- phalic substitution device on my beat and I will hang a revenue generating instrument on it. Drive and you better have a valid endorsement on the license.

Before you start to flame my dispersions towards the Milwaukee Based Company- I own a Fat Boy cause that was the cool thing to own. Bought with the last retro check. Fricking Lemon- vibrates like an unmedicated epileptic. Wont run right if the humidity is above 75%.

Well, Mr. media person, it starts as what is known as an Inspector's Infraction Report, which becomes a Summary Punishment Action Request, which usually results in a 1 - 5 day suspension.

I find this interesting since I have all of my vehicles except one registered in another state. The only thing I can't do is park in the city owned lot at work when I use them. Now if I was going to be legit, I'd get a shitty sticker for them. I don't see that happening anytime soon.

If someone was enterprising enough they would have photographed his motorcycle tags & contacted their favorite Media Outlet. The question being "Supe how is it that you can circumvent the contract & go after Cozzi, but are unable to abide by State & City statues yourself??"

You can have a vehicle registered in another state as long as it is primarily used/kept in that state. I know a lot of coppers with summer homes in Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan and have vehicles, RVs, off-roaders that are kept there.

...............

You can have your vehicles registered out of state. It all depends on where you have property and if the plates and insurance rates are cheaper, believe it or not some states charge more for plates. HOWEVER....if you work for the Police dept we all know you are required to live in the city so even if you register out of state you have to get a city sticker. This has been gone over before. The city tried to get a Captain up north for this approx 20 years ago. It was ruled he could register out of state but had to get a sticker.

-----------------------------------
It would be a little unusual for a CPD cop to have the financial resources to build a home in AZ. It would certainly bear taking a look at such a situation.

It is perfectly legal to have a residence in two states. the time you spend in the other state you are a resident there. You can even vote there, but not both places in the same election. in fact, you can actually buy handgunms while you are residing in the other state.

It is a fact - everyone there saw it. Even if there IS a loophole in the law that allows him (or anyone else for that matter) to maintain two residences and keep the bike registered in PA, being the Superintendent of Police - the figurehead of the Chicago Police Department, wouldn't it just be RIGHT to spend a few of the $310,000 the City gave him on some plates and a city sticker?

Wrong buckaroo, if the vehicle is registered to you and parked in a station lot, it must have a city sticker, no matter what state the plates are. Many people have fought that battle and lost.

Anyone in ISP check to see if J-FED has a FOID card for his beloved FED Glock ? Speaking of the G word, i cant think of a better sidearm for a cop these days than a Glock 17....17 plus 1capacity, easier trigger pull than the stupid double action only,
and as tenacious as the terminator himself. I would want it if i couldnt have a long gun. What you say, you dont like 9mm ? Get the G22 .40 cal, put the plus 2 thingy on the bottom of the mags and its 17 plus 1 just like the G17. Lacking long guns, carry plenty of rounds so you can pin em down until the other cars get there to bail you out...

Hey SCC remember the bull shit auto residency cards that we has to fill out every year , we had to list all vehicles in our household who drove them and the current city sticker number. The battle on that one went to court and the city lost. No more auto residency cards. Then the W/Cs had to check the parking lots for cars without current city stickers and find out who owned those cars and take appropriate action. The entire city sticker thing has gone through the wash several times resulting in the idea that if you drove a vehicle and parked it in the city lot you had to have a city sticker , even if the car was registered in Michigan or Indiana. Kind of stupid isnt it. I think it was done to give the public the impression that if we were writing city sticker violations we had better have one on our personal cars. Stupid isnt it. But what do we expect. I am now retired and live in a suburb. I have no bottled water tax my city stickers cost 15.00 for two years. My car insurance dropped by 1200 dollars ayear and I bought another car to boot. If my kids were school age they could go to public schools not catholic schools that cost 5000-8000 per year. I dont need to worry aboout gang banging on the corners, Go for a repeal of residency on the contract. Its non economic for the city and better for the union members. The requirement to live in the city limits goes back to when police officers had to walk to work, or ride the trolley or streetcar or bus to work. You can live outside the city and make it to work in just as much time as living on the outskirts of the city in small houses being taxed to death on everything from a small ass city lot to take out food. FOP work for the residency to go away. its non economic so now may be a good time to try to get it in the long run it will be a raise in pay, just for the tuition and car insurance you will save.

Guess who had thier Harley delivered to 35th and Michigan and had it stored inside the dock area until he was able to get it home?

I asked building security if I could have my new stove sent to HQ's - they said no.

MCC 3-56-020 License Required

"It shall be unlawful for any motor vehicle owner residing within the city to use... any motor vehicle... upon the public ways of the city or upon any city owned property, unless such vehicle is licensed as provided in this chapter."

"The owner of a motor vehicle or any other vehicle who resides in the city but maintains a situs or base of such vehicle outside the city shall be entitled to a credit against the appropriate license fee provided for herein in the amount of any wheel tax license fee paid for such vehicle to the municipality where such vehicle is based; provided, however, that in no event shall the license fee be reduced to an amount less than the wheel tax license fee for passenger automobiles."

Another words, if you reside in Chicago and own a motor vehicle, you better pay the Chicago Wheel Tax if you plan on operating that vehicle on the public way within the City of Chicago or any city owned property... no matter where you have that vehicle registered.

It sounds like someone (last name rhymes with peace) may need to pony up for a Chicago vehicle license for their motorcycle.

Not the end of the world, one way or the other... but it makes one wonder...

Even though he is the Superintendent, he is a "foreign national" to Chicago and realistically can not be expected to know every single city ordinance on the books. No excuses... but... Who are his advisors? His handlers? Who is watching this guy's back? They obviously are not doing a good job.

I am sure he feels pretty damn embarrassed being the top cop and having this motorcycle licensing issue blow up in his face... especially when Inspectors are enforcing the rules on everyone else.

When you make poor choices on who is close to you, sometimes there are negative consequences. Hmmm... I think that is a resounding theme only heard on this blog a thousand or so times so far...

I do give the man credit though for showing up and riding with the troops to personally support the cause. He probably would have been better off renting a Harley for the event, seeing as how his "papers were not in order" prior to the event. Lord knows he could afford it.

If only he had known...

I'll bet he has proper plates and tags the next time you see him riding in the city.

Maybe he will show a humorous side to this issue and gives us all a good chuckle by applying for a vanity motorcycle plate that reads "JFED." Now that would be one small step to show is trying to assimulate into the CPD.... ha ha ha.

Give it a rest, already! A vehicle sticker is required on any vehicle routinely driven in the city. This means you. Whether you drive a car that's registered to a business with an office outside the city or not. Whether you register a car to your mother in law (dumb move; she'll own that car if you divorce) who lives in the burbs or not. Whether you have a summer place in another state and your car has out of state plates, or not. You're required by law to put a Chicago tag on it, in addition to any tags required by the city it's actually registered in.

Unless you're the Superintendent of Police, that is.
