NYPD Traffic Division Calls

Sorry for the long delay in posts. My apologies.

Anyway, this morning, Thur., May 21, 2009, at 9am, guess who calls my cell #? And leaves me a message to call her back.

Ronda [not her real name], a NYPD traffic division supervisor.

After about ten minutes, I call her back. I get not Ronda but one of their operators. I talk to her for a minute. Then Ronda picks up.

She had called to inform me that they are investigating my claim that one of their traffic agents had issued bogus tickets.

Of course, I don't believe anything she tells me. But out of politeness I humor her as best as I can.

I'm sure after a few weeks I'll receive a bogus form letter from the NYPD traffic division telling me that nothing improper occurred. My claim of official misconduct was just my crazy imagination.

Hey, when the foxes are guarding the hen house, what do you think is going to happen to all the hens?

We talk about ticket quotas for a bit. She says it's a projection not a quota. Of course, they will never say it's a quota. Because ticket quotas are illegal according to NY state law.

So, if I rob a bank, and I call it "borrowing" and not robbing. Then I should be able to use that defense in court and walk out a free man. Right?

It must be easy working for the city. Federal and NY state laws don't apply. You can do anything you want. All you have to do is call it something else.

What a bunch of $#%! doublespeak!

My greatest wish is to see our charisma-deficient Mayor Mike and all his parking Nazis tarred and feathered and run out of town forever.

What is the number to file complaints of this nature? I got a ticket a few months back, I fought it and won. I even called 311 and filed a complaint but no response.
