Chicago cops are writing fewer parking tickets


Chicago Police officers who have their hands full with rising homicides and other violent crime are on pace to write 15 percent fewer parking tickets in 2012, but revenues are up, thanks to dunning deadbeats, dramatically higher fines and a fundamental shift to outside ticket-writers.

Through July 31, police officers wrote 513,413 parking tickets, or 73,344-a-month, a rate that would translate into 880,128 tickets for the year if it continues. That’s down 15 percent from the 86,202-a-month and 1.034 million tickets written last year and a 20 percent drop from 2010.

“Chicago Police officers are overwhelmed with the response to 911 calls and policing other crimes,” said Fraternal Order of Police President Mike Shields.

“We have fewer officers on the street. That will ultimately lead to less enforcement of any crimes,” including illegal parking.

This is one reason, among many, that the CPD is held in such high regard by the public. Chicago Police Officers are recognized as "real" cops addressing real crime/violence.


Chicago Police Officers place their lives on the line, literally, each and every day.


This asshole absolutely deserved this ticket and more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lKwkn6JT74

We should write NO fucking parking tickets till this cocksucker gets off our backs and hires more cops. The only way to gets this Jews attention to kill off his revenue sources. Writing tickets (now the dope tickets), impounding cars, unless you find another friendly homicide victim in the trunk, and ANOV's. Fuck this greedy self serving Klunt. The only thing he cares about is enriching his pals and himself. Vote Romney into the White House and you KILL HIS ONLY CLOUT....Barry. And this little mutant will be all washed up.

So that is how Mr Mayor gets this crime numbers... McGarfield the Monday Cat too:

Murders and violent crimes are WAY up. Tickets given and bicycles stolen and jaywalkers given citations and police showing up to warn the neighbors their stereo is up too loud are way down.

So overall police action dealing with crime is reduced. This is from the police having their action clustered on dealing with the sky rocketing killings, done in record numbers.

Crime may or may not be down. The ticketing of crime, logging of less serious crime and addressing less serious crime however has stalled and taken the back burner place in light of the priority of handling the most violent cases first being needed.

Trading parking tickets for murders from gang banger gunfire? Shit... I'd rather see less killings and more people getting ticketed!

Way to shuffle the data about to make it say something positive!

Democrat method: When the data you log gets too bad and starts to hurt you cause... STOP RECORDING IT! Then say all is fine or there is not data to answer the inquiry on how matters are either way.

CPD will soon be replaced civilians that write case reports
for property crimes . Forensic investigators will be replaced by civilians . Civilians have replaced sworn dispatchers , loop traffic control , sworn lock up keepers . Soon all latent fingerprint technicians , review officers , desk officers and commanders secretaries will be civilian . Next contract we will have more sworn police officers doing what they were hired to do , patrolling a beat , not office clerks .

I don't know where their getting their info from, I've been hammering all the residents of Beverly and Mount Greenwood with tickets. How else would I get any activity? It's a lot easier and less stressful then chasing real criminals. Hopefully, if I keep writing tickets I can spend the rest of my career in 22. Only twenty-four more years to go & I'll have twenty-nine

I do not mind writing parking citations as they generate funds for the City and therefore the money could be utilized to hire more police officers and give us a raise.

Whenever I see a vehicle that is in violation of an ordinance and bears an Obama sticker I take the time and effort to issue the citation. If an individual has extra funds to contribute to Obama then he has extra funds to contribute to Rahm!

Is that a stock news photo of the car that belongs to the dude that the fags from TRU sandbagged? The one owned by the husband of the married broad that a TRUtard was fucking? Oh no, it can't be. Dude got those tickets via "air mail" from books signed out by partners and fellow team members.

Felonious parking? Parking tickets always struck me as being more of a civil thing than criminal. The city loses out on ticket revenues. Big deal.

HEY MIKIE !

Tell them to put us on commission 50 50 on the tickets and tows.

Get rid of those parasites!

First take them out if they try to jump the fence and get day rims and thumpers back! SWAT practice and re-qualification?

Let Romneyhood and the cheese head deal with the illegals including the man who was never. born so we can have our health care and pensions even for the real Americans with the feathers in their hair. No American no American. air!
Less cars and straight shooting niggarz will take care of the rest so get a good contract before we become extinct?

I would target the fancy, expensive vehicles.


You want to drive a vehicle that attracts attention. Boom - you got my attention.


Not the attention you wanted? Too bad.

An Obama supporter is a Rahm fellow. Therefore I also will make the effort to write a citation on any vehicle extolling me to vote for either Rahm or Obama that is in violation.
