North Side Tickets?

Any of our north side readers know anything about this?
  • Why is revenue writing tickets to church goers in 016? Saw them out today on Touhy writing cars and it looked like they were in a hurry to get it done before church let out.
    Is this getting done on west side and south side?
Sunday church-goers targeted in a well-to-do part of town? Interesting to say the least. Any truth to this one?

I heard this rumor too. It seems like someone unleashed a barrage of tickets on city workers cars while they attended church services at St. Juliana's Church on the 7400 block of W. Touhy.

In 014, far too many parking courtesys are allowed for every church, play-church, church activity, you name it.

Now, so-called 'former' gang member, alderman Rey Colon, has destroyed the beauty of Logan and Kedzie Boulevards by covertly passing an ordinance to allow parking there.

Considering all of this, WHY in hell would revenue be targeting actual churchgoers during the hours actual services are being held? Those people should descend on the alderman's office up there and DEMAND the tickets be nonsuited. Just like Rahm Emanuel had HIS last ticket nonsuited.

Foul... Just plain foul and a declaration of war on tax payers who for the most part try to mind their business and stay out of the way... We would definitely understand if a crowd of the good church-goers took up hoes, rakes, mattocks & hot fire to the mouth-breathers doing the funky deed...

Let a ticket get written around one of the South side super churches and see what happens...

Even if a Policeman didn't write it, a Policeman's ass is going to be hurting because of it.

I was told by an administrative hearing officer to NEVER contest your ticket by mail, they sit on it forever and you're still liable for it, even if you shouldn't. ALWAYS CONTEST IT IN PERSON. A lot of the hearing officers are attorneys who work a few hours a week hearing cases,only. As such they have no loyalty to the city and most feel that the city is in the wrong anyway.

Not to fear. I'll bet the ACLU will be on this soon. All it will take is a Freedom Of Information request to see where all the tickets are being written (and paid).

If there is a disproportionate amount of tickets being written in the white areas, I am sure they will defend them. The ACLU always plays fair with both sides.

No sympathy here. Drive on Illinois roads- have valid plates, regardless of what state issued them. You're probably one if those stupid yuppies from Indiana who had lived in lakeview for years and still hasn't changed their D/L or plates to avoid paying for a city sticker, both of which I will gladly write you for if I ever stop you.

Parking courtesy comes from officers themselves. They are asked to give it by the supervisors but aren't ordered to. So go out to the 'make believe churches' and start writing. Let your commander non-suit them if he wishes. The law is the law - write em all. And don't forget the revenue writers have to get to the North side somehow right? They sure don't live up there. I'm sure they aren't parked legally when parking is scarce. Don't get me started on the roll-through stop signs.

The issue here is not that there is courtesy parking on the south and west sides, there should be for church. The issue here is why tickets were written on the north side?

I'd like to thank the Revenue loser working the 17th district for that expired out of state plate ticket.

I've had plenty of Chicago, suburban, and Illinois State Police behind me in the last few months, likely all believing the same thing, its an issue between myself and the other state.

Why would any business person in their right mind want to start a business in a city that bleeds their citizens dry on BS tickets like this, I sure as hell won't be opening shop in this shithole city.

Bite me loser. I, too, thank the Revenue ticket writer. You richly deserved the ticket regardless of the agency responsible for writing it and no matter how you try to justify your actions. You got caught having relocated to Chicago and doing your best to avoid buying Illinois plates and a Chicago vehicle windshield sticker? Sux to be you! Loser!

Its sad when a company like Springfield Armory is located in Illinois, which does not have a concealed carry policy because of Chicago politics. Began manufacture in 1794 and because of their legacy of products we have a free America. Their M1A is one of the most beautiful rifles ever made. Also,their GI .45 1911 pistol is having its centennial anniversary. springfield-armory.com

I'm not a cop, recently received a ticket in the mail for "parking in a bus zone" at 10 E. Chicago. So supposedly I was parked in front of the McD's/Redline stop at State & Chicago.

I went to the payment place & set up a dispute, then went in during my window. I brought in photos of the area in questions, and told the magistrate that I had never in my life parked there.

I also inquired as to how the ticket was written - since I never parked there, I didn't get one on my car, nor was I pulled over there. He told me the city is not compelled to disclose how I got this.

He asked me if I can swear that I've never in my life parked there, and I said yes - and he still refused to waive it!

He told me I needed to prove I had not commited the infraction - WTF, how can you prove something that never happened? I countered by asking him for the city to prove I had parked there, and once again was told it doesn't have to.

This whole thing is just ass-backwards.

Security Costs Adding Up For Daley, Burke

10/31/2011 04:56:00 AM

If Tiny Dancer 9.5 had even the smallest amount of honor he would champion the ranks of aldermen and women being cut to 25 and he would notify shanks and slick eddie that, before the end of the year, they must transition to either paying for the total cost of supplying their security, which means people, vehicles, gas, licenses and everything else, or transition to private security.

TD 9.5 wants us all to share the pain, except for the aldermen and women, shanks, and slick eddie. He will cut CFD, CPD and OEMC to the bone, but the alderpeople's number remains at 50. Plus, shanks and slick eddie have had more than enough time to arrange for their own security or to start paying the tab. It has been six months since TD 9.5 took office. Enough is enough.

I received a parking ticket, which I appealed. A few weeks later I received a notice from the city saying I owed $60.00 and had to pay. Two days later I recieved a letter from the appeals board saying I won the appeal. I called revenue to ask why the dent me the notice to pay when I won the appeal. They told me to call my alderman. Only thing is I don't live in the city. Took months to get my $60 back. Guess they don't figure any one will win. So wait until you get the letter from the appeals board, not revenue before you pay.

FYI received from church today..

Parking Alert
On Sunday, October 30, representatives from the City of Chicago Department of Revenue issued parking tickets to cars parked on Touhy Avenue during masses.

Although Touhy Avenue is in fact a posted no-parking zone, the City has historically not issued tickets to vehicles parked on Touhy during masses or special events. Consequently, our parishioners and visitors are in the habit of parking along both sides of Touhy Avenue.

It's unfortunate that we did not receive advance warning of the no-parking enforcement in time to advise you of the change. Father Steve has already been in touch with Alderman O'Connor's office about removing or modifying the parking ban to accommodate our mass times, funeral services and special events.

In the meantime, please do NOT park on Touhy Avenue at any time or you may receive a parking ticket.

Then their Dept of Security will process a CR against you for Harassment.

Then the Union will file a Civil Suit on the PEA's behalf.

===============================

Well the city was unwilling or unable to arrest and fine enough of the occupy wall streeters. So what did you expect?

300 protestors at $500 a pop only gives you $150K! so of course we need to write more tickets picking and choosing how and who the laws are applied to so that the money can then be applied to the make believe so-called obligations that the taxpayers should not and really do not have.

Going to have to waste a lot more man power and resource to be able to generate that kind of money.

I suggest that you sell your vehicles and walk. Deny the city and the state its wasteful slush funds for the clouted. No more city sticker money. No more parking permit money. No more license plate money.

No more bullshit tows by United Road Towing that damages your vehicle like they did mine, playing games with processing claim bullshit until the statute of limitations runs out then tells you to eff-off.

The city that works is not working for me. The alderman don't care, the mayor don't care, 311 doesn't care and the inspector general don't care. I've wrote them all.

So now you don't get ANY revenue. Zip, zero, none and I only hope more will do the same.

It's not the politicians jobs to pick the winners and losers. They are doing so with the corporations deciding who gets a tax break and who doesn't and they are doing it with these phony parking violations giving one group a break and then laying out for others.

Throw each and every one of these career politicians out of office and give some one else a change. The clout I'm sure is nice as long as you are on the receiving end. Just remember though with the moral standards that they abide by they will throw each and every one of you under the bus if they fear themselves are in jeopardy.

My mother and father got a ticket Sunday by St J's. To say both were were upset would be an understatement. Approximately one foot of the rear of their car was past the no parking sign at the end of the block. I told my folks that I'd take care of it in an attempt to calm them down. I knew getting it non suited was impossible, but my dad is old-so when I said I'd fix it, he assumes one thing, but in all actuality I'm going to pay it.

I went to the Alderman's office because I couldn't get through on the phone. Either the lines were put on hold or many others were calling to express their outrage.
I spoke to an aide and she said the Alderman has no standing to intervene in this.

I told the aide, that I'd pay the fine and then told the aide to give this message to the alderman: "No more will I give a parking courtesy to any religious organization when it is requested. If the city wants to ticket 80 year old people at Mass, when other churches, synagogues and mosques get an official or unofficial pass, so be it."

Fuck them all, write them all. Mosques have major prayers on Friday afternoon, those fuckers park all over the place, city stickers from all over the area. Jewish folks either pray on Friday night or Saturday morning. The very religous ones don't drive on those days, so you may not be able to find parkers up north in the black hatter part of town. We all know about the MB churches and storefront churches on the west and south, but not let us forget the Latino churches (especially Slim Coleman's-a major police hater) that slam us all they can.

It is time to show our muscle to this little asshole Rhammie.

And what exactly do you write them for if they are legally parked????

10/31/2011 08:03:00 AM

City sticker. If they are parked on city streets for an extended period of time, they have to get a city sticker. The beat cop would know how often they are parked there.

I have a serious question to ask about one of the recourses people are suggesting.
Say I stop one of these DOR hacks on their bike breaking a traffic law, and they shockingly don't possess a DL. TVB or what? Because there are only so many MCC bicycle violations, when you can hit them with every traffic law in 625 ILCS.
Anyone ever TVB a bicyclist?

To Hell with the churches and mosques and synagogues. Write the tickets. And why parking courtesy for a nightclub at North and Damen every weekend? Payoffs to the alderman perhaps? Write them too. Maybe the cmdr should explain to the feds why that business is so fortunate.

We always have notices in the CO book telling us to extend parking courtesy around this church, that school, the alderman's office. But when we have a sergeant's test or a police event or are at the training academy, we are told through the daily bulletin and the bosses to secure legal parking or you will be ticketed. But we are family and we take care of each other. NOT
-------------------------------------

No, because you took a job as a police officer in a cop hating town called Chicago. Liberals have flocked here from small farms to west coast cities, they have secured jobs in the courts, media, radio, schools, and law firms, and IPRA. West side, south side to North side and even the suburb folks have people who support us. Citizens enjoy our protection but it does not count, they have no voice, for it has it been hijacked by many out of state liberals, they provide a daily attack upon this department.

Don't you realize the tv and radio mdiea will go on and on, "look at this officer parking illegally" "officer why did you park illegally" "Super is it common practice outside the training academy for recruits to park illegally, and break the law" along with photos. Get it. Its acceptable by the cities elite for churches, schools, and alderman to park illegally, but not the police. Remember a few years back he city wanted us to park squad cars going to bank robberies & Domestics legally.

It is time to start writing tickets for every offender - no matter where they are parked or for what event.

Pay no attention to the requests to "give 'em a pass"

Write the ticket. The retirement fund needs the revenue. The City needs the revenue.

Above all, Daley's goon squad needs the revenue!

WRITE THOSE TICKETS WHENEVER POSSIBLE.

The more parking tickets, the better.

Hell no. The west side churches get "courtesy" parking that allows them to double and triple park their cars along main streets like Chicago ave. Try writing them a ticket, you'll get an earful from caps and a direct order to non-suit from upstairs.

Well just to follow up about calling for police in 016 and not getting a car for a domestic. I called Alderman Arena
Today about the lack of officers in the 016th district. He Informed me that a few years ago 016 had approximately 350 officers, and today it's around 180. One of the largest if not the largest district in the city and only 180 officers is disturbing. He further informed me the current administration has been doing a good job with distributing resources from desks back to districts but 016 hasn't been given officers because of the low crime rate. FYI I checked the one of the smallest districts, Englewood which is 20 blocks by 20 blocks approximately and they have around 500 members assigned, how sad is that. I say we should just keep telling everyone we know to call his office And complain everyday. Burglaries are up 12 percent and look what happened to the little girl in Indian head park who walked in on a burglar. Property crimes have the potential for violence and adequet police response is detrimental to everyone's safety. Its not the officers in 016 as much as lacking the manpower.

First of all stroke do you think that's the only church that cops and city workers attend? I'm a cop and attend a different church along with many other city workers. And guess what my neighbor is a cop and attends a totally different church than those two? So the point is if they are going to bomb a church of city workers they can pick any church in the city. And guess what they can get the addresses from the phone book or the internet. Get out of your cave and live a little bit. It's not secret information. If they plan on bombing you they will since this city has no plan of attack and couldn't handle a disaster.

Bullshit on "we don't go in da hood cuz ain't no revenue."

We'll bet you a Fat Man on Friday that there's the equivalent of the municipal budget shortfall x2 that is uncollected on the streets of the West & South Sides but the revenue mouth-breathers are sent to extort the people who contribute something besides grief & aggravation...

Englewood 007 is not the smallest police district. 015 and 023 are much smaller. 015 has over 360 coppers assigned to it.


023 has the GAY LAKEFRONT VOTE!

Alderman Arena has been more responsive than his predecessor Pat Levar to ward complaints but he must do MORE on police allocation.


016 is turning into the ghetto very rapidly. There is a huge increase in burglary and theft from auto, alot is not reported either. The gangs are here and so are the drugs.


There are over 5,400 CPD officers who reside in 016. John Garrido still could not get elected Alderman. The Republican Ward Committeeman Dave Haynes just stepped down, Dave is a Sgt.


We need to become more pro-active on every level. Is John Garrido running for Ward Committeeman?


When will Alderman Arena and Alderman O'Connor standup at City Council and demand our police and fire protection levels be maintained?

Her Facebook page is patrolled with SS-like precision, any critical comment, even "uncomfortable" questions, are removed within minutes!

It's either the mark of a person who has no idea of what she is doing, or someone who knows EXACTLY what she is doing. Either way, this ward will literally pay in every way possible.
