Yes, you read that right. According to WBEZ 95.1 in their article: Chicago Seized And Sold Nearly 50,000 Cars Over Tickets Since 2011, Sticking Owners With Debt
“According to a WBEZ analysis of thousands of towing records and invoices, the city regularly pulls residents into a nexus of ticket-related debt and car seizures that is stunning in its scope.
In 2017 alone, Chicago booted more than 67,000 vehicles for unpaid tickets. In about a third of those cases, the driver couldn’t afford to remove the boot, and the vehicle was later towed to a city impound lot.
Of those 20,000 impounded cars, more than 8,000 ended up like Botello’s: They were sold off, with the owners receiving none of the sale proceeds. Instead, the city and its towing contractor pocketed millions of dollars, while residents were left with ticket debt.
All told, there have been nearly 50,000 of these sales since 2011.
The vast majority of cars bound in these tow-and-sell operations hail from low-income and minority communities on Chicago’s West and South Sides, where experts have said residents are already hard-pressed to pay for effective transportation.
So here is more proof that liberals are not for the poor as they claim! Their policies are seizing Citizens property because they do not have the money for the high fees. There are no Republicans elected in Chicago. Of the 50 Councilman seats and of them 48 are Democrat and 2 independents. Source Wikipedia Chicago City Council
So if there ever was a test case for liberal policies it is Chicago. What do we see there? Oppression of the poor like this and here is more proof Democrats Eyeing Gas Tax Hike of 20 – 30 Cents Per Gallon In Illinois! When will Americans Learn?
