Union Fights Back For 4 Cops Caught Up In Ticket Writing Scam
The Fraternal Order of Police, the union which represents Chicago police officers is strongly backing its four members who’ve been implicated and recommended for termination for their alleged involvement in the Mark Geinosky ticket writing scam says the Chicago Tribune.
Geinosky is the man from the South Suburbs who kept on getting parking tickets for places he had never been. Geinosky got 24 tickets in all and beat every last one, but media scrutiny from the Tribune’s Problem Solver column and Geinosky’s law suit has put the jobs of several cops at risk.
Three of the four cops have hearing dates on December 9th. The fourth one is fighting in Afghanistan and won’t have his hearing until he returns stateside.
Here’s the Tribune’s update on the case, “Problem Solver: Ticket case keeps on ticking.”
