Darn You Evil Police!

  • An Englewood driver booted five times this week alone has racked up nearly $8,000 in parking ticket debt with the City of Chicago, and he says he can’t pay the tab.

    Some might believe that if you follow the law and adhere to the penalties if you break it, you won’t get into hot water with the city, but that’s not the case for everyone.

    Joe Nathaniel says he can’t pay his parking ticket debt, which totals $7,921. Records show he’s racked up 38 violations since 2006, forcing him to file for bankruptcy. His five booted vehicles include two Mercedes, all booted on the same street on the same day.
Check out that underlined paragraph again:
  • Some might believe that if you follow the law and adhere to the penalties if you break it, you won’t get into hot water with the city, but that’s not the case for everyone.
If you get 38 violations since 2006, you obviously aren't following the law. In fact, you might be accused of actively flouting the law. And he owns five vehicles, two of which are Benz'z? All properly licensed and registered? He couldn't sell one to cover all the debts?

We smell bullshit here.

"Predominantly Black Neighborhoods Feel The Pain Of Expensive City Parking Tickets "

How about changing that to:

"Predominantly Black Neighborhoods Are The Cause Of Most Crime Along With Traffic And Parking Violations ? "

Nahh.. that'd be racist.

Parking enforcement us not consistent. Tickets are issued if you do not park close enough to the curb. My vehicle was damaged by a hit and run driver who knocked off my front license plate and holder. I came out to find my vehicle damaged and a ticket had been issued for non-compluance missing front license plate. I contested it with the police report I made and It was ruled It had to pay the ticket. I obeyed the law and still got screw*d.

Read the ticket envelope.

Tickets issued for 9-76-160 A or B are not dismissible. Expired plate tickets and Rear/Front Required $ Non-Compliant are that ordinance.

Well there's your problem. You obeyed the law.

One thing you have to remember if you are going to live in Chicago, If you follow the rules, you will get screwed. And if the rules include a fine, you damn well better know that you WILL end up paying it no matter what evidence you present to the contrary.

What’s your point? Are you saying that this knucklehead’s tickets for 8000 are just unfortunate mishaps? No I think one of the earlier commentators has a point. The idiot can’t read. Other options are he can’t understand what he is reading or he thinks the world owes him free parking anywhere anytime and the sad thing is that his beliefs most likely will be reinforced somehow.

If you own five vehicles and have to park them all on the street then you my friend are a moron. Rent a garage or buy a house with a driveway. I suppose some might call that racist but if you live in an apartment with little street parking and own five vehicles and can not find legal parking, I don’t know how that’s anyone’s fault but your own. Stop blaming society for your problems. This story isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

Tow his hoopty to the pound, wait 30 days, and then auction off. Use that money to pay down debt to city. If he got 38 tickets since 2006, he also was parking illegal many times and didn't get one so he just doesn't give a phuck. Time to pay up, if I don't it becomes a separation issue real fast.

If this isn't evidence of left leaning media I don't know what is. I can't fathom a professional signing off on a story like this? Are we supposed to feel bad for the idiot? If the debt was discharged in bankruptcy court the city should sue this guy for fraud, all he has to do is sell one of these vehicles to satisfy the debt.

We live in a city of filled with high-functioning scammers, starting with the Daleys and the department heads of Cook and Chicago government agencies, but also lots of folks just like this guy: "above the law". Flouting the law, flouting the rules, flouting everyday civility and good manners. It's the zeitgeist of Chicago: honest tax-paying people are considered to be idiots deserving their financial abuse and our pervasive criminal environment.

-Hit your wife and break her jaw? Arrested? Blame police, they're racist.
-Drive like an idiot, dress like a gang banger, talk like a gang banger? Police look at you suspiciously? More racism.
-Cashier asks for ID at checkout? She's racist too.
-Don't like my kids school. Racism. My kids should be admitted to a selective enrollment school (even though they are just average students).
-Seen climbing out of a window, of a house that was burglarized. Well, that's just trespassing, burglary would be racism.
-Someone asks where you are from or where you grew up? That's a microaggression. A subtle form of racism.
-Now, I don't pay my hundreds of parking tickets and I can't afford to pay them. So this is clearly R A C I S M ! ! !

Give me a break! This country is so screwed up.

Both parties in this are assholes. The City and the car owner.

The fines for parking violations are ridiculous and oppressive. The add-on fees and penalties are borderline criminal extortion. The appeal process is a complete scam and a legal charade. The City looks at the parking tickets as a cash grab. Once that ticket is written the money is as good as spent by the City. That is why there is no meaningful appeal process.

The car owner is a don't care a-hole that does whatever he wants and believes he should be exempt from consequences. 5 cars? Are they all insured and stickered?

If he can afford 5 cars, licencing, tagging and insurance, he can figure out how to park legal.

F him.

(head scratching???) Uh.... I'm confused?? That first paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with the subject of the article, Mr Parking Scofflaw, one Joel Nathaniel. And he sure as hell hasn't followed the law nor has he adhered to the penalties involved. This tripe of a ::cough:: 'news article' is just a lousy attempt at a woe-is-me sob story. And a misplaced one at that.

Whoa.. hold on.. uh.. wait a second .... I think I've got it now: Parking Laws are are Racist and single out Black People for unfair punishment. Phew... I feel much better now.

SlumTimes again scratching the bottom of the barrel with that story.
Five cars and none carjacked, ok, he deserves a acknowledgement but not a free pass.

Free Community Chest pass for him.
AlderTools OReally and Hopskins took no exceptions recently by raising and imposing hefty fines for temporary downtown delivery vehicles...because....they pay.
I recall a few years ago The City (pre-Sanctuary declaration) was going to file judgements for deadbeat civilian indebtedness.
Then it was scrapped and and limited to City employees by the only known financial wizard without an MBA.

Oh, The FakeNews photo didn’t include the missing City stickers on those 5 cars, did they?
Can’t afford to pay tickets, which were doubled for ignoring them rather than plead his case before a sympathetic city paid magistrate. What’s an impoverished community member to do?
Take the bus?
Once a deadbeat always a deadbeat.

Isn’t there be something the Welcoming and Inclusive Sanctuary City could do?
Underservered, no resources, creating mobs no jobs.
Watch a GoPayMyBills Fund to be started.

Oh well, forget the laws - it’s The Englewoods.
What part of that surprises anyone?

Chicago is nothing but a scam city to make money... heres one for you which the city has been doing a lot of and Im surprised that the media isn't picking up on it....If the City is going to do some type of street repair or tree work or whatever, they post the signs around 4am then come at 7am and if your car isn't moved it gets ticketed and possibly towed if its all wheel drive...so the city is supposed to give you at least 48hrs notice prior to any work done unless its an emergency (like pipe burst) so in this case the city puts a sign up 3hrs before scheduled work...and also put the sign up when your sleeping and not aware of this..then they have the nerve to ticket you and tow? wtf? This has been happening a lot lately. Fuck the city.

I got told at rollcall "see the W/C after rollcall. I did and was presented with a well over due parking ticket with a date and place that I recognized as when I let my then 20 yoa. son use my truck. Went to the place on 95th St. and paid it immediately, as I knew they would write me up and garnish my check. Needless to say said 20 yo paid me back double and learned why you can't just toss those orange envelopes!!!

Soooooo we just had LTs from 025 visit our roll call in 015. They were attempting to sell that Neighborhood Policing Initiative position. What a joke the presentation was. No wonder 025 is so fucked up. I honestly feel sorry for the POs in 025. LTs had no idea what they were talking about.

So you are supposed to be CAPS, Tact, Det, and PO all for the same money.

This is what is required of you:
Working POs only.
Bring in activity, but dont. Do investigations to get what Dets missed.
Investigate things yourself, dont forward to other specialized units.
Forward things to specialized units for further investigation, dont investigate yourself.
Become mobile 311 so things get resolved faster. You'll probably get dept phone so everyone can call whenever they want. Do Det job but dont get paid out of grade.

Copying NYPD program. Pathetic. Aren't we trying to get away from NY nonsense.

Get your shit together 025.

I have not seen more unorganized presentation by LTs anywhere.

11:21 and 10:30 nail it on the head.

We at Parking Enforcement are directed that if the Vehicle is NOT displaying the Yellow Placard, to issue the ticket.

Also, I call BS that you've had that Spot for 30 years and have never been issued a placard by the Permit Division of Revenue/Finance in all of that time.
