Rougue DUI Writing in Chicago

A couple years ago, Chicago Law Enforcement Officer, Richard Fiorito, was accused of falsely writing a number of DUI citations for lesbian and gay motorists that he pulled over. At that time, 40 lawsuits were filed against the Chicago police force. Even though there were a significant number of witnesses testifying to the discrimination involved, it was announced that civil rights violations charges would not be pursued against Officer Fiorito. Many of the gay and lesbian people accused of driving while intoxicated immediately protested the decision and moved forward with individual lawsuits. The Fiorito case illustrates the importance of never accepting a plea deal from District Attorneys… and this applies for Las Vegas Dui as well.

While Officer Fiorito retired this year, the latest two cases settled by Chicago authorities have resulted in each of the motorists receiving payments of $100,000.

Independent Vendors on Strip Targeted

As you may or may not have noticed, an uprising of water-sellers, t-shirt pan handlers, CD hustlers and other self-described “broke” folk have been doing their best to make a fast buck on the Las Vegas Strip. With the economy in its current state, can you really blame them? Unfortunately, as city zoning would have it, selling anything on the Las Vegas Strip is strictly illegal (unless you are a casino, of course)… and if you are caught in the act by Metro (who are now trolling the strip undercover), you could be fined, jailed, or face other severe penalties. Sadly, many of the individuals recently cited and arrested for selling water and other such goods on the strip were unaware that their activities were illegal. They had seen the hoards of men handing out free porn materials, and assumed that selling good and health bottled water would not turn any heads. Well, this is Vegas. A free picture of a naked woman with her legs spread is more acceptable than paying for a small gulp of the vital life-force liquid itself. Dramatically stated, but true. Dozens of people have been recently ticketed due to the new county ordinance aimed at clearing the strip of independent vendors. The new law took effect last month, and according to county business license agents, “It enhanced our ability to conduct enforcement.” The county agents also said that their office has increased plain-clothed business license agents are patrolling the Strip until 1 a.m. each day. So, in effect, both business agents AND Metro are on the look-out of vendors. Beware. Also outlawed on...
