that guy is gonna win his court case too, it'll just take him another decade is all.
 
2012-03-31 05:44:19 PM
Even though I want to root for the guy completely, am I completely missing something on the whole "they are colluding with my ex-wife" thing?

Previous articles made the wife connection.

In March 2010, he filed a federal lawsuit against several officers claiming they conspired with his ex-wife to "injure and get vengeance" against him. Geinosky's ex-wife has denied any involvement in the tickets, and the lawsuit was thrown out by a federal judge. (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-11-07/business/ct-biz-1107-p ro blem-geinosky-20111107_1_mark-geinosky-parking-tickets-police-board)

Attorney Daniel Herbert, who represents Roque and Hegewald, said his clients deny the allegations.

"They're completely innocent of the charges," Herbert said. "The tickets were not written by them."

Sources said Sabatino is currently serving with the military overseas.

In a Friday email to the Problem Solver, Whelehan said he has fully complied with the Police Department in its investigation, which he called "misdirected and partial."

"I want to be clear that I have never met Mark Geinosky, nor have I ever issued any parking tickets to Mark Geinosky's vehicle(s)," Whelehan wrote. "In fact, after learning details of his complaint, I too, am sympathetic to his frustrations."


REALLY???
a cop claiming that he is innocent?? LOL
would be interesting if they were polygraphed and if the tickets were checked for finger prints.

I love that he kept getting tickets after he sold his SUV.
so ... the tickets didnt have the cops badge number and signature? they were sequential tickets? so his ticket book got stolen? did he report that???
LOL

so glad that there is a TINY chance that these tards might actually be punished!!

"During oral argument, the judges openly wondered why the city did not settle the case which they said represented the best example of a "class of one" lawsuit that they had ever seen."

BECAUSE FARK YOU, THAT'S WHY!

/The Chicago way....

Gives the Chicago cops plenty of time to write more tickets to cover the settlement.

A cop is an asshole? SHOCK! This has never happened before!
 
2012-03-31 07:30:48 PM
Has he moved away yet? He needs to move.
 
2012-03-31 07:39:22 PM
and now the city will have to write more tickets to cover the judgment amount

"I want to be clear that I have never met Mark Geinosky, nor have I ever issued any parking tickets to Mark Geinosky's vehicle(s)," Whelehan wrote.

That's got to be the ballsiest "I didn't do it" ever. Tickets with your name, badge number, in your handwriting, in sequential number from a ticket book that was (I'd assume) signed out to you, nah I don't see any connection at all.

Chicago, setting the bar for corruption at levels unimagined by people living in a more "normal" area.

Man buried in bogus parking tickets by estranged wife's cop friends will be allowed to sue police officers and city found to have died accidentally after falling down an elevator shaft unto some bullets.

/just saying, they could probably get away with it.

Can't wait to have these officers and officials be forced to explain themselves in a responsible court.

For his next trick, he commits suicide by shooting himself in the back of the head 5 times (with 16 more misses) while handcuffed and buries himself in a shallow grave in Grant Park.

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

I know you're joking, but here is a story that's not a joke. Two years ago there was a scandal involving hundreds of NJ cops who were getting script for juice and it was all paid for by their cop health insurance. Anyway, the LEO who was put in charge of investing the cops who were juicing was found dead in a hotel room with multiple gunshot wounds. It was ruled a "suicide".

Hey. I love the ones that go that route. It's always fun to add to my ignore list when they prove they have nothing else of value to contribute.

C12's not here to explain to us why the cops were completely in the right here and we should all thank them for their amazing work yet?

The fact that the PD and the city allowed this to go on for so long AND sweep it under the rug... top to bottom, people should be losing jerbs and facing prison time. Houses of corruption like that need to be cleaned out and disinfected. Wholesale firings and lawsuits. More than just a housecleaning, this should be the equivalent of Hercules cleaning out the Augean stables.

Oh, and courts should allow the guy to cockpunch the (hopefully soon to be ex-)cop whenever he wants. If CruiserTwelve or whomever thinks this is defensible or just an "isolated incident" and not worth putting a man out on the streets: you fark with someone's civil rights, especially over pissant shiat like this, you're lucky that all that happens is they take your gun and badge away. You have the power to seriously ruin someone's life for petty bullshiat, you best behave.If you can't the punishment should be legendary.

Chicago has long been known to be a hive of wretched sum and villainy when it comes to corrupt officers. That's why it doesn't really surprise me when news like this comes out.

Police Officers, of any rank, should be held to a higher standard of professional behavior and quality than the average citizen, because they do wield enough power to completely and utterly destroy someone's life. And when that is willfully violated, it should be aggressively investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It doesn't matter if anyone wants to claim an isolated incident. Behavior like this, and using your position as an LEO to exact revenge on someone, should never be tolerated, and should not be excused.

Nope, no cop is personally civilly liable for his actions on duty in Federal court, you should know that. He can be criminally liable or punished/fired at his job for it, but no cop can be sued unless they're not acting under color of law. (Which is almost all the time, given the whole "still on duty even when off" doctrine.) Case would be dismissed immediately.

Also, speaking of recent Chicago cop-hate news that hasn't made it to Fark yet, here's a lawsuit from a carful of people shot by an off-duty cop who sideswiped them (pops) with all details of the investigation sealed. Road rage and coverups, Chi-town cops know it.

I don't think it works like that...
 
2012-03-31 09:46:04 PM
It looks like it might have been one cop, (Wilkerson), and one judge (Darrah, the judge who threw out the original case). It looks to me like Wilkerson might have written the bogus tickets, and the ex-wife might have parked her car which was still in hubby's name illegally, and then the other cops wrote legit tickets which her cop friend then laid off on hubby's car. That would be my initial reaction, anyway.

Especially given the lame reason the case was thrown out in the first place..."failure to identify the norm"??? Howabout this: Most people don't get sequential tickets every day at exactly 10 p.m., Your Questionable Honor? Love to be the pro bono in this case.
 
2012-03-31 09:47:54 PM

Mugato: Yeah right, good luck.


The fact that his car (which is ex wife was driving) had to literally be in two places at the same time means this guy doesn't have a case?

Mark Geinosky separated from his wife of twenty years, Sharon, on October 6, 2007, and that's when his problems began. Sharon Geinosky continued to drive a Toyota that had been registered in Mark Geinosky's name. Mark Geinosky began receiving parking tickets in the mail in groups of three and four worth around $300 per set.

Not to defend the cops, but the ex-husband is a complete idiot for allowing the bolded part to happen.

Sorry to disappoint, but the cops that did this deserve to be fired and criminally charged.

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

Been my experience that most lawyers are punks....either pro-bono or being paid cash upfront by the client. They don't give a fark, and only care about their pathetic "careers" as bipedal vermin sucking the life blood of the productive. Lawyers are going to spend decades up in front of the same courts dealing with the same judges, prosecutors, cops, clerks, etc. They won't rock the boat over some little nobody they are only going to see once.
Justice.....BLAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH.

Foxy, you got that backward. A cop CAN be sued personally under color of law, that's what a Section 1983 suit is for.
 
2012-03-31 10:03:19 PM
Btw one of the Chicago cop blogs is telling officers to watch their unattended ticket books. Apparently some people presign (I have no idea why) the tickets and this is just one cop with a grudge and up to 8 are going down for it. He took their ticket books.

/likely BS circling the wagons
