See-BS News Parking Followup

Must be sweeps week or month or whatever they're using now.
  • It's one of the rarest things in downtown Chicago, almost extinct: a free parking spot. Some people thought that they had found that hidden treasure, but soon complained to CBS 2 Investigators that they had been caught in a parking trap.
Trapped by an officer "hiding" in an unmarked vehicle who noted the times they parked and then hung tickets after the fact.

Well, technically, they were "standing" illegally, waiting for the clock to run out before they "parked" the vehicle in a spot they had been holding illegally for tens of minutes and more. Pimpy? Yup. Trap? We'd say let the lawyers sort it out but they're working for Shortshanks, so we know which that decision is going. It's currently under review.

We thought the officer making Pam jog alongside his squad car was amusing though.

In any case, See-BS News apparently has decided that the only "corruption" worth covering in Chicago is parking "corruption." And not just any parking "corruption" - "corruption" that puts the police in a bad light. Not the aldercreatures, the storefront churches, the "reverends" who demand courtesy, not even the media that commits moving violations by the busload and parking violations by the bushel and then demand (and receive) "courtesy" after the fact.

Anyone want to waste any more time pointing Pam toward City Hall? The County Building? Springfield?

I said it before and I'll say it again: "Fellow law enforcement officers: Do you have the feeling your elected officials are using your mistakes to hide their own corruption and stupidity? The truth is we’re being used to divert attention from the CORRUPTION and INCOMPETENCE in Richard M. Daley’s administration."

This city is loaded with corruption. It appears Daley and the politicians control everything. On top of having an economy that's going to make the 1930's look like a cakewalk, we have a hot summer coming up; and we have J-Fed for a leader. Pammy, how come you're not going after incompetent leaders in city government? First task: Ron Huberman.

What an f-ing joke. Write all those pieces of crap. The sign says no parking or STANDING.......GUESS WHAT when you pull into the spot before 930 and wait yuo are STANDING! Peopel can read the sign. WE don't have to tell you to move. He waits for everyone to leave because he doesn't want to argue with all these crying whining people who are in violation of the law and the SIGN!

Great comments by the officer. Tell that bitch to get a life. Only thing better is if she would have fallen. I would have wrote her an ANOV for blocking traffic. Maybe even long formed her like I do to joe.

I can't believe this crap makes the news. Especially when the people involved are in clear violation of the law. Nothing states we have to give a ticket immediately. I can write all the tickets at once which will take some time and then hand them out when they are all done. It called working smarter not harder. Pam can get F'd and I hoipe I see her van driving down the road. She''l be the firts to get a mover out of my 10yr old mover book

First of all as for "Zekman: "Why don't you get out of your car and make them move, say you're in violation of the sign?" The answer is because he doesn't have to. Why should he? Because its pimpy? Maybe so but he still doesn't have to warn them off or make them move.

This officer was trying to do his job. The Department should support him. Instead ,as usual, after media pressure his bosses cave, put him in a marked car and comply with Pam's wishes. Disgusting.

I didn't follow the cubs/sox parking issue too closely, but what about the double parking around the "churches" (that term used loosely); double and triple parking, no tickets issued (formal, or informal, orders from d/c's offices, don't touch them (I guess Daley needs the religious vote, the "law" is applied based on who who you know or where you worship; it is Chicago, after all..)

Stormy Seas and Major Changes Ahead; Hold Fast!

It appears that the Mayor will soon have another rubber stamp in the City Council. Unconfirmed reports are that Alderman Brian G. Doherty will soon be resigning his Aldermanic position and that the Mayor will choose a successor.

Mayor Richard M. Daley will lose a key African American ally soon. Alderman Isaac "Ike" S. Carothers will be federally indicted by midsummer, on public corruption charges. Once again, the Mayor will personally select an Alderman.

The Mayor is beyond frantic in his quest of attaining the 2016 Olympics. The Mayor wishes to place the 2016 Olympics as the capstone on his public service career. The Olympics provide a guarantee of a Daley Legacy for the next 100 years and a much needed distraction from the corruption and scandal that have become flagrant and blatantly obvious to the public.

The Olympics also guarantee Chicago a much needed, federal infusion of capitol for pet projects. The Olympics provide the perfect screen to distribute literally, billions of dollars worth of contracts to the chosen few and enrich select individuals and families.

Michael K. Shields will utilize his position as a trustee, on the Policemen's Annuity and Pension Fund of Chicago, to cause the Daley family greater suffering and humiliation. Michael K. Shields will be instrumental in obtaining the federal indictment of Robert G. Vanecko.

The alleged misdeeds of Jon G. Burge are also haunting, former Cook County States Attorney Richard M. Daley, twenty five years latter and will become much more pronounced in the next two years.

Underlying brewing scandals of unimagined proportion will surface after October 10,2009 and any attempt to surmount them will be futile.

Police Superintendent Jody "J.P." Weis will gracefully exit his position, for greener pastures, in November 2009 and a CPD insider will replace him. Will Alfonza Wysinger become the next Superintendent?

Mayor Richard M. Daley will, for yet undetermined reasons, opt out of running for re-election in late 2010. The Mayor will formally endorse Cook County Sheriff Tom J. Dart to succeed him.

All eyes should be on Paul G. Vallas and his triumphant return to Illinois. Will Paul run for Illinois Governor, US Senator or for Mayor of Chicago?

What high paying celebrity position will Ariel "Ari" Z. Emanuel find Milorad "Rod" R. Blagojevich? Rahm Emanuel is desperate to keep the former Governor quiet, occupied and funded; an indicted, humiliated and impoverished man can cause tremendous problems.

FOP President Mark P. Donahue will be replaced by Daniel J. Shields, you heard it all here first.

Deputies wearing gear to protect against swine flu

Sheriff's deputies working on the streets and in the jails are being told to put on protective gear if they fear they've come in contact with someone infected with the swine flu, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday.

The sheriff's office will make masks, gloves and other measures available to 750 deputies working the streets and will add extra deputies trained to identify suspected illegal immigrants based on the theory that some of those inmates might have come from areas in Mexico where the infection was rampant, said Lt. Brian Lee, a sheriff's spokesman.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio also took the opportunity to point out another potential threat to America- infectious disease- that could proliferate if the United States doesn't shore up the border with Mexico.

The statement from the Sheriff's Office states that the gear is for the arrest of illegal immigrants.

"That was the prevailing attitude then -- they are venomous and no good, so get them out. It is a sad thing. The snake can't help that it is venomous."

The media does not investigate and report facts. They are liberals who can't stand anything conservative, (police) and they try to tear that element of society down because it does not fit their template of what they want society to be. The media is another branch of the democratic party. The mainstream media has zero credibility, look at all the newspapers going into their death spiral. Cable TV gives us more choices of what we watch news-wise, it is just beginning to break the stranglehold the liberal media has. Radio industry is different story. Libs can't compete there because stations want to broadcast shows that people will tune in to. The liberals tried to break into radio with Air America show nationwide, but radio is profit drivren, the more people that tune in draws advertising dollars. Air America failed because people did not care for liberal propaganda. So now look for the liberals to try to get air time by legislation through the "fairness" doctrine.

Daley will never be indicted. He'll cut a deal with the feds, (though not publicly acknowledged), to map out his evil empire. The "deal" will not require him to testify against the players.

He'll "retire" to avoid prosecution on various corruption charges.

Many other "Al Sanchez" types from Daley's regime will continue to be prosecuted and do jail time, as Patrick Fitzgerald connects the dots on Daley's crime map. Said map, however, will only mislead the investigation into the real Outfit connections.

Should Chicago 2016 become a reality, former Mayor Daley will make a smooth transition to head the Chicago 2016 Olympic effort guaranteeing him and his family continued free flights and vacation/fact finding missions all over the globe.

The Chicago Outfit will CONTINUE to run all things profitable in the city.

The immediate Daley family will never again run for or hold local political office. Shortshanks will be recognized historically as the last of the Big City Machine mayors, and an example to all of WHY term limits in politics is necessary.

I am "OLD HAPPILY RETIRED OFFICER" and I live in the 10 sector of the 022nd district and thus have "time on my hands" to be observant.

Let me WARN YOU that the department of revenue is in this district, and the 10 sector in particular,damn near 24/7 issuing tickets and installing boots like crazy!!! In one instance there was one "DUDE" wearing a yellow stipped "dept. of revenue" pullover ON A MOUNTAIN BIKE writting tickets in this sector.

Could it be "DISCRIMINATION"?? Does the city feel that this district and particular sector is home to many PO's and therefore punishing them, OR more likely THAT AS WORKING PEOPLE, THEY ARE MORE CAPABLE of paying fines AND that by the nature of their employment are FORCED under rules and regulations of various departments to pay under THREATH OF MORE SERIOUS DISCIPLINE than the "common" voter???????

Can't help but wonder if this degree of enforcement is taking place in ALL NEIGHBOORHOODS OF THE CITY???

I personally do properly license all my cars, and pay strict attention to traffic laws-no double stadard here- but can't help but wonder!! These "VANS" (with cameras) and people are out here at ALL HOURS!! Other non- city employess (citizens) are critizing the POLICE "ie: DON'T THEY HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO"????

BE CAREFULL!!!

Be VERY CAREFUL ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY "STICKERS" on your personal vehicle!! Something sinks here!!

Hey Pam Zekman, Great investigative reporting. Time for you to retire, you couldn't find sand at a beach, never could, never will. You are the laughing stock of intelligent, educated Chicagoans, who all feel the same way about you as i do. You, are a silly little woman, who should retire, and take up knitting. Please just go away, your "investigative" reports get sillier, just sillier, every year. You remind me of a rent-a-cop Security Guard, who's catching a little kid shoplifting a candy bar from a store, while armed robbers are stealing all the money from the stores cash registers. I can see why you stayed in Shit-cago so long, you couldn't make it ANYWHERE else.

Wow, three Alderman pulling the pin all at once. Federal pressure heating up and rumors afloating. We certainly live in interesting times.

City council zoning czar to step down

The long-time boss of the City Council's Zoning Committee has told colleagues and aides that he intends to quit.

Ald. William J.P. Banks (36th) has been chairman of the committee that rules on zoning changes across Chicago since Mayor Richard Daley took office in 1989.

"I've talked with him, and I know he is planning on stepping down," Ald. Patrick O'Connor (40th) said today. "He is looking to move on to a new stage in his life."

Daley gets to appoint both a new 36th Ward alderman and a new zoning chairman. Sources said Banks will ask the mayor to appoint his chief of staff and driver, John Rice, as his aldermanic successor.

The new zoning chairman almost certainly will come from the ranks of veteran aldermen who are loyal to Daley.

The last time that a PO wrote a ticket on a media vehicle, for parking in a handicapped spot, "Phat Phil" attempted to demote the watch commander and the media cheered him on.

The media believes that they are above the law!

That's fine, I don't really like my watch commander that much any way. Time to crack out the ticket book and blow the dust off. You want revenue mr. mayor? Good cause I'm about to give it to you. Plenty of make believe churches and murders to bring out the media trucks where I work. And like I said, I don't really like my watch commander.

Why don't you do a story about the disproportionate number of tickets written in neighborhoods where people will PAY, compared to those where people do NOT!

Make allowances for population variances, and then do a comparison. How many REVENUE people are on bikes on the west side?

Chirp.

Off Topic:

I was at the Chicago Police Memorial today, watching as the Chicago Police Honor Guard proudly marched in front of the Memorial. As I was standing there a woman and a man came to lay a wreath. The woman, who kindly introduced herself as Detective Joseph Airhart, Jr.’s mom, was then assisted by a Officer from the Honor Guard in laying the wreath.

When I though of the extreme sacrifice she and her family had endured and the years of suffering endured by Detective Airhart, my eyes filled up with tears.

God Bless the Airhart Family and the Chicago Police Department.

Be sure to continue to write up the media vehicles that are illegally parked since the media is so concerned about illegal parking.

Hey Pam, did you find out who sanctioned the so called VIP parking?

How about asking why the TMA's are paid to stand and watch the traffic signals control traffic.

Look in to why the mayor has a 30-40 man security detail? There is no threat to him. Same with Burke.

Why are there attendants at the gas pumps that don't pump gas or log the gas that is pumped? A security guard and a telephone could do the trick.

Why do news trucks park illegally to go into restaurant to eat?

The local media is now most verifiably & undeniably full of dogshit... (bullshit at least has redeeming commercial value as fertilizer)

Saw on Breaking News that the fibune has been soliciting subscribers on which stories they want to see run in that soiled bowel-rag of a paper.

Soooo...

I wonder this has something to do with the obviously orchestrated spleen-venting against the police is part & parcel of this foolishness?

I swear, even Ray Charles (blind & deceased, R.I.P) can see short-biggie's shit-stained fingerprints on this. Turning the weak minded sheeple against the Department during contract time to bolster his crying poor in spite of sitting on nearly 6 billion by some accounts.

short-biggie is spending a F-O-R-T-U-N-E on public relations/spin doctors that keep putting us in a negative light. (now if some of us would stop doing STUPID SHIT these miserable ass-whores would be out of ammo) I agree with prior posters that we should keep shortshanks missteps in the spotlight as well... Public corruption on such a grand scale that in another place & time the appropriate sanction would be a stout length of manila hemp knotted behind the miscreant's left ear after a short amble up 13 steps... followed by a good tar & feathering of the confederates who will then be chased away with sticks & rocks...

Paranoid much?

I seem to recall as a Traffic Aide in the Loop, seeing CPD on bike patrol, on Segways, on 4 wheelers.

Yeah...we have a Bike Detail....so fucking what?

As for 24/7 enforcement....

Revenue works 6am to 2pm and 11am to 7pm....From border to border....
7pm to 3am Ser Co employees cover the city in Packs that jump out of vans and roam an area.

Ser Co has a Quota...unlike CPD or Revenue. They are required to issue 60 a night. They write Everything in the Autocite Ticket Machines.

Revenue isn't allowed to write 12 inches from the Curb/Wrong Direction...but SerCo will hit you for it.

Revenue is Hamstrung by a Street Operations Deputy Director that want to turn the department into a Shortshanks Social Club.

We get told to avoid 'certain' areas around Sox Park..you know where I mean (shields etc...)...and then we get told to go into other areas and do our jobs.

We are instructed to Write M plates that are parked Illegally...Period....But we don't.

I personally have avoided over 200 cars illegally parked that have your little St Judes stickers...or the black/white hat band...or the Sgt/Lt hat band.

And you know Why I don't FUCK you like I should?


Because I respect what the quality members of your department do for the average citizen.

And no...I don't come from a Blue Family....even though I have a Degree in CJ and pray for a written exam.

But I do my job...and if I can manage it...I cut CPD personal vehicles slack.

You can suck the only nut I have , formerly known as my left nut. I used to live in 019(born and raised on the South Side) you fucking jagoffs used to blow my ass out. My tickets all stemmed from times when I had to park on the meters after work(0400) and didn't get up at the ass crack of 0800 to move my car. One time I slept till noon and you dickheads gave me two. Im not bitching because I know the rules and broke them, but don't tell me your cutting me slack. Just because I am an up and up dude, I didn't take my revenge on your co workers with an air mailier. I will however put this out for the folks in 019. There is a douche bag meter maid who parks his shit box white Crown Vic with tinted windows($250.00 fine!!) in the area of Ashland and Diversey last seen east side of Ashland near the bus stop.
