Where do you think the PATH system gets it funding from? Tolls and fares from the PA.....

This makes no sense.... It would cost JC taxpayers millions to service a relatively small area, that is already close to JSQ.

Would anyone know where to get rennet and citric acid in JC? I used to get it all the time in NYC but I would rather support our local businesses.

I couldn't agree more... This thread HAS spiraled WAYYYY out of control...

The "whole dog on a leash" thing got way more attention than necessary. Apparently, it will be a hot button issue come November...

The whole original point of this thread:

Doesn't JCPD have more important issues to address than minor QOL infractions?????

I gave examples just to reinforce my point- not to debate whether any laws were broken.

(BTW... nobody seemed to address the fact that I saw two crackheads smoking crack on Kennedy Blvd, right off of JSQ in broad daylight!!!!)

True, I've never been to LP football field or the field you are talking about. I prefer to stay out of the ghetto. I'm in downtown so I enjoy the parks in dtjc and in newport.

Just a quick question, if she did not take her eyes off of him for a sec, was she also looking out for other people? Was she keeping one eye on him and one eye on other people? lol


At the end of the day, what is your point? That the cops have more important things to do to improve jc? I refuse to believe that cops can't walk and chew gum at the same time...

Cops should look the other way? Which laws should they enforce and which laws should they look the other way? Are you going to decide? Healy did a good job at that.

You want empathy? From who - random strangers on a forum? lol


Ghetto? Wow! You really must not be from the area. Just goes to show how ignorant you really are! Do yourself a favor, walk away from the hipsters once in a while and expose yourself to some culture...

You prefer to stay downtown "where the cool people are", all the while calling yourself a liberal while looking over your shoulder when "someone that doesn't look like you" sneezes.... And let's not forget about following social trends... When you moved to the NYC area, did you actually meet any NY'ers or did you conform to those from whatever Midwest shithole you hail from?

Empathy is obviously not something in a hipsters language of sarcasm, PBR and plastic sunglasses....

And FYI, I am a white male who happens to actually be from the area and not a transplant. I'm not poor, by any means, and happen to live with a neighborhood not controlled by Corporate America's idea of how NY should be....

Oh and ideology isn't telepathy, however much you love, trust and respect your GF. You and your GFs cred is a little suspect when you chose to ignore the rules in the first place. What other rules do you choose to ignore? Curbing your dog? Picking up its poop?


If you are a dog owner, as you say, and your dog relieves himself at any given time, instead of on a set schedule, your dog is obviously not trained very well.

I have admitted fault, directly to you, for now the THIRD time.

Do you just have this insatiable need to feel superior? Or are you really that self-absorbed in your need to be correct?

So you are telling me she scanned the whole entire football field before taking the dog off leash AND kept scanning field the entire time to make sure no person was around and that the dog had no escape route whatsoever (cause if the dog is off leash, they could run away at any time). If she went to those two extremes then yeah, in this particular instance, you did not endanger anyone.

Is it unreasonable for me to assume here that this is what she did, if even that, - "Hey, don't see anyone in my peripheral vision, let's let my dog run free"......pays attention to other stuff....10 mins later...cops come and writes a ticket.

If she was scanning the field for people the entire time, she should have seen the cop coming....not seeing the cop suddenly come means she did not have a good idea of who was around and that is dangerous....not for you or the dog but for people who don't want to encounter a dog off leash.


*buzzer* WRONG! As usual, somebody is making assumptions without know what the hell they are talking about.

You have obviously no idea where the football field is in LP. You have obviously never been there. The field is right off of the cul-de-sac that runs around LP.... The cop pulled right off of the road and right onto the field, essentially blocking the one and only entrance.

She was running up and down the field with him. So she did not take her eyes off of him for a second, nor did he teleport to pee or poop anywhere...

In an enclosed field, with one entrance and nobody else one the field, who do you suppose would have encountered the dog?

PLEASE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE COMMENTING ON THIS POST!!!

But that's exactly why you, as a responsible dog owner, have to lead by example. People see you with your dog off leash, they think they can do it too. That's the whole crux of the problem at place like Morris Canal park.

People assume it's a dog park because they've made it one. But in my conversations with our Ward E councilwoman and head of the PA neighborhood association, it most certainly is not. Hence why plans are in the work to educate residents and change the behavior to align with the laws.

But again, that's why the onus is on responsible dog owners to abide by the rules and do their part to correct those who dont - it's in your own best interest to do so. Agree?



I understand your gripe with MCP... I know THAT park well. But it pales in comparison to the size of Lincoln Park.

With LP, you know whats ruining the park?

1. The litter (a huge QOL issue at LP)- give summonses for that!

2. The excessive beating of the East Great field by soccer games (under the arguments that numerous posters gave me, it would be like banning people from playing soccer)

3. The poor drainage systems that are decimating all of the fields because of constant flooding.

4. The excessive poop from the wild Canadian Geese (why not fine them, too!)

5. The crumbling fountain, which has approval for restoration at 3.9 million, but is locked up in bureaucracy...

Dog poop isn't really an issue at LP. If it is at MCP, they should issue these summonses there (Let's be honest- they won't issue summonses there)! I know my park- I'm there everyday! Just as you know your park. The bigger issues at Lincoln park should take precedence!

You don't. That's ignorance. And ignorance of the reason the ordinance exists in the first place.




I know this because my girlfriend has the same ideology as me when it comes to our dogs.

When my dog is unleashed, and yes, I'm guilty of unleashing him as well, I make it a point to only do it when:

1. There are no other people or dogs around.
2. When he's in a controlled environment , in which I can control his movements.
3. Only after he has 'done his business' (that's what I meant when I said 'I know my dog')
4. When others (children, adults or other pets) come within proximity of the area, I immediately re-leash him.


I can immediately throw the same argument right back at you... How do YOU know that my dog peed and pooped when you weren't there? How do YOU know that my dogs pee and poop are on your kids clothes when you weren't there? How do you know that my action DID encourage other dog owners to do the same thing?

You don't! I guess you are just as ignorant as me!

And to top it off, my gf has dedicated her life to pet care. She is a vet in Brooklyn.

But Pier, the larger point is that "I know my dog" is not a valid excuse. I don't know your dog. The cop doesn't know your dog. And even most owners don't truly know their dogs (they think they do, but they really don't).

The point is that the law wasn't written just for those people whose dogs are uncontrollable and wild beasts.

There are places where dogs are allowed, and places where they are not. The law can't be written any clearer.

It's like the old joke "something can't be sort of wet", it's either wet or dry. Black and white. It's pretty straightforward.

I'm trying to be as cordial and straightforward as I can as it relates to the dog issue, but you guys make it difficult sometimes. It's up to you to introspect and come to the realizations that rest of us already have.



And I do understand. That's your whole entire point.

But to be honest, the cops scared the crap out of my GF and my dog (not literally) when he suddenly drove up onto the field. When my dog is unleashed, and yes, I'm guilty of unleashing him as well, I make it a point to only do it when

1. There are no other people or dogs around.
2. When he's in a controlled environment , in which I can control his movements.
3. Only after he has 'done his business' (that's what I meant when I said 'I know my dog')
4. When others (children, adults or other pets) come within proximity of the area, I immediately re-leash him.

As I said, I'm a responsible dog owner. I do understand your point 'that few make it bad on everyone'. It's true. But 'they' are not the people who get ridiculous fines, such as this one. The responible owners do!

The cop was a douche and wanted to give her a second summons for having our other dog tied to the pole. He claimed '2 dogs, 2 summonses'! I got the impression like, 'Yes. I can fulfill my quota for the day'!

I can also assure you that the dog in question was back on the leash before the cop even got out of the car!

I know several cops in my local precinct. As a matter of fact, they know me as 'the bulldog guy'... When I explained the situation to them, they explained that 'Fulop is trying to make JC like NYC and turn it into a police state. He's making the police issue tickets on a massive blitz citywide, for all sorts of offenses."

When I asked them about real crime, they explained that Fulop is all about swaying the statistics to make himself look good. The 'real crime' will always be there....

I have no empathy for a hypothetical kid that does not exist. Especially after I repeatedly stated that my dog did not pee or poop anywhere on the field. He wouldn't have, either. How do I know? Because I know my dog. He already had done his business elsewhere- another point that I repeatedly stated.

Guess what, clueless person, I was born and raised in JC, and not even downtown JC. So, I have a pretty familiar grasp of what's going on outside of DTJC. But, I happen to live in a nicer part of the city now, and this is what I choose to dedicate my time to.

And like I said before, keep the insults coming. This doesn't take much effort at all on my end, and I'm making waves and affecting change. It's starting with this issue, where I've learned how all the appropriate channels work. And once that's been taken care, I'll move on to other things that make the neighborhood better. You, my friend, are clearly not contributing to your neighborhood and in fact are engaging in behaviors that are detrimental to your neighborhood.

I've in no way shape or form said ALL dog owners. I've been a dog owner for many years, a RESPONSIBLE one. If you walk your dog on leash, and clean up after them, then clearly this does not apply to you.

You're in the wrong on every issue you've presented here, and you're too self absorbed to realize it. If someone's idea of QOL is skirting existing laws and ordinances and not getting ticketed when caught, then clearly that person needs to rethink what comprises a positive quality of life.

I'm neither clueless nor do I need your pity.

There is a bigger picture and a hell of a lot of bigger issues, in which, you can dedicate your time. That is where your cluelessness comes into play. You have this superiority thing, in which, you talk down to people if they do not share your views. Passion is an absolute great quality. I am glad to have someone, such as yourself, living in my city, who takes such great pride in their community. I have that same passion in my community and I take action! The bigger issues need to be addressed before any of the small ones. That's all I am trying to say.

You are telling me that I keep insulting you? No. You insulted me approx. a half dozen times before I slung any mud back at you. Feel free to re-read your posts.

Who bought you your house- mommy or daddy or was it Uncle Jim back in Iowa?


I'm just throwing out ideas.

On a serious note, leashing your dog is a law designed to protect the safety of other individuals. You may think your dog is well behaved but it only takes 1 time. Also, you may not see anyone around you but unless your superman, you never know.

I rather be a douchebag and hurt someone's "feelings" than be responsible for injuring another person...


But did you read where and how my girlfriend got the ticket? She was in an fenced area, with no people around, on a football field, while there was no game in progress. The cop drove onto the football field (essentially breaking the law himself) to issue her a summons- $100 fine plus a court appearance. The dog did not pee or poop anywhere within the confines football field.

I understand that she was in the wrong for having him off the leash.

My entire point- the posters here are complaining that having a dog off of the leash affects the QOL of everyone.

How, in any way, in this particular instance, did my girlfriend or my dog affect any single persons QOL?

That's some very nice, "we are the world" writing there Duh. But, as I discussed in the original thread regarding dogs off leash, the irresponsible dog owners caused this, not individuals like me.

I've explained ad nauseum what happens when people approach offending dog owners (whether it's dog off leash, or not cleaning poop), and the absolute nasty responses received. There are many responsible dog owners out there (many of whom agree with our stance on this), but it's the few ruining it for the many.

And unlike our friendly neighborhood Batman believes (Vigilante), those behaviors will change, or people will face the consequences via increased enforcement (as the OP has experienced). The difference between the past and now, is that you've got my voracity behind it (and before the usual taunts of "loser" and "got nothing better to do" save your breath, I can multi task my life, this doesn't take much effort at all). The laws are not written to be selectively enforced. If you see cops willfully ignoring stuff like this, get the badge number and call it in.

Maybe this way, Batman over here will have less and less friends giving him the free pass he's enjoyed for so long. At least now we know to focus more on HP.

Either way, it's being addressed at the neighborhood level and you will eventually see an increase in enforcement over time. That's the unfortunate side effect of progress.

I love how people are posting here mad at the mayor for enforcing laws and making the cops get off their asses to do their jobs. You can argue the point all day whether or not it's right to enforce this law or that law, but you're still in the wrong. I've gotten a ticket once for rolling slowly through a stop sign in Montclair at 1 AM after playing ice hockey. No one was around. It added points to my license. It sucked big time. But I'm in the wrong. I don't go crying to the Montclair message board that the cops were mean and I'm mad. I paid my fine and moved on.

I don't think it's cheering our neighbors' misfortunes as much as it is tired of hearing them whine like children when they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Let's grow up guys and actually live like responsible adults. Probably get a lot less tickets that way.

Unbelievable! The nerve of police to enforce the law...

Dude, seriously, give it a rest. At this point, we have surmised the following:
- You feel that because you own a property, you get to make your own rules.
- You want police to enforce the laws, but not the ones you choose to break.
- Your friends have an uncanny knack for getting pinched for QOL crimes.

Honestly, I hope JCPD keeps it up. Soon enough, they will be able to increase their focus on other, more serious issues, like speeding, aggressive drivers, etc.


I'm glad that in saying "we" that you are really taking ownership of what you're trying to say....

1. Owning property has no relevance to this conversation, other than the fact of somebody stated that "I only go to the park with my dog because I'm too poor to afford to buy a house with a backyard".

2. I do not feel like I can make my own rules. I stated numerous times that although laws are being broken, our law enforcement is focusing on the trivial issues to make a spreadsheet at the end of the year outlining their (and Fulop's) accomplishments (since they apparently cant get rampant drug sellers, murders, etc. off the street).

3. Again, snarky sarcasm is a mask for those who cannot communicate freely... Please do not change MY words around to make your point valid- which has been the theme of this entire thread.

A friend got stopped by JCPD for buying "loosies" (individual cigarettes) from a bodega....

What's next? JC & the Fulop team are apparently taking a page out of Bloomberg's book and stopping everybody for anything and everything! Wait until "stop and frisk" starts.....

Thank you! I agree with every point in your post. Holy shit! That's really all I was trying to say!!!

For your information, I am a homeowner. I own a condo.

I DO know why people here are snarky for posting things that they would never say in person- because they are douchbags!!!!

Who bought you your house- mommy or daddy or was it Uncle Jim back in Iowa?


I think our friend Piert here is proving that the off-leashers are entitled crybabies.


How am I acting like I'm entitled to anything? What I'm actually trying to say (seeing how I can speak for myself and all), is that you are absolutely perfect in every way and I envy your ability to constantly speak for others!

Obiviously, people ignore the laws (my dog deserves to be off leash), so if a simple law of the land doesn't work, then yeah, give it a nasty fine, and a court appearance. Maybe next time the dog owner will think twice.

And as for drinking on a stoop - for nearly ten years we sit on my stoop almost nightly with a drink, when the weather is nice. The cops have never said a word about it.

Similiarly, when we were having problems with the residents of a house on our block, and they would be all sitting on the stoop drinking beer - the police told us there was nothing they could do, that the people were not breaking any laws....

You came to the wrong place for sympathy (or, to vent) as very few people, if any, will feel anything but glee at the fact that basic, quality of life, issues are finally being addressed.

Instead of bitching, or complaining, about a friend being booted for unpaid fines, why don't you ask your friend why he (she?) has failed to pay three tickets? BTW, I say three, because I believe that is the standard for booting a car: three unpaid tickets. And, furthermore, that is what Fulop fought for some years ago: for strict adherence to the rule that allows booting if, and only if, a car owner has failed to pay the defined number of tickets (which, IIRC, is three). Don't get it twisted, or try and frame to your convenience.

As for the unleashed dog, I have to agree with nyrgravey9 (despite our differences in other threads) that this is also a QOL issue and that the police should be vigilant about enforcing these rules. As others have said in other threads, an off leash dog is unpredictable, even a perfectly, well behaved one.

About beer on a stoop, that's definitely BS. That one, if really happened the way you describe it, could/should be fought.


I'm not looking for your sympathy. Just a little empathy. For anyone one this thread to say they are innocent of ever committing a QOL violation, you are flat out liars and hypocrites. Again, who here has not jaywalked? Is it not a QOL violation? Is it not illegal? Would you not be pissed if a cop pulled up on the sidewalk, stopped you and issued a fine that has a mandatory court appearance attached?

I completely understand that JC List, and its fiercest posters, are here to emanate their vast superiority by denigrating others. And when you get those beers, make sure you don't drink them on a stoop!

Yet again, assumptions are being made that just aren't true.... There were 2 unpaid tickets, each received within the last 60 days and without ever receiving a second notice- which the law states as proper protocol before placing a boot.

I am fully aware of what Fulop was fighting for. I'm not "getting anything twisted" nor am I "trying to frame anything for my convenience". Please don't type if you don't know the facts surrounding your baseless accusations.

I have included the article below stating what Fulop was fighting for 5 years ago, for everyone's info...

So you think that a court appearance is justified? What's next- getting a fine and mandatory court appearance for something as trivial as jaywalking?

JC parks need fenced in dog runs so dog owners have a space where they can let their dogs go free without risking a fine and so that everyone can enjoy JC parks without dogs damaging them.


The park in questions here is Lincoln and there is a nice sized dog park there where the dog could have run free and no fine would have been incurred. The owner chose to knowlingly violate the law, ignore the area provided for them, and now wants to complain? No sympathy here.


The dog run at Lincoln Park is approx. 1 mile from the closest entrance to the park (West Side & Harrison), in Lincoln Park West. If you do not drive, this is incredibly far and inconvenient... Wouldn't it make more sense to put the dog run closer to where people actually walk their dogs, in Lincoln Park East?
