HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 7/21/2014

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – July 21, 2014

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category….

Hoboken resident Evan Michael is becoming a regular contributor! Thanks! Here’s a typical shot. Doesn’t even matter where it is. The ONLY pertinent information needed is visible:

  1. It’s a city vehicle
  2. Parked illegally by a red curb

Like I said before. This hypocrisy will continue up to and until someone gets hurt or killed because of their disregard for why the “law” was implemented (safety reasons).

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – July 11, 2014

A typical scene in Hoboken. Minor parking offense (not having the permit, or going over the limit). We’ve already hammered the point that this does NOT help free up parking for the residents “who deserve it,” it only fills city coffers and makes visitors resent the city (thus hurting small businesses).

The parking director recently said that the booting would be curtailed. But that apparently isn’t the case. Collecting that revenue from these draconian “violations” must be more addictive than heroin.

Reader “Hoboken Wanted” sent in this daily scene of an HPU “booter” parking where everyone else shouldn’t.

Question is: “who boots the booters?”

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 6/30/2014

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – June 30, 2014

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category, we yet another hypocritical photo up for discussion.

Here’s a standard city SUV parked illegally near the intersection of 11th & Washington. Par for the course.

And we already know that ordinary residents and visitors get hit with hefty fines and life-disrupting boots, etc. But there’s one other thing I’ve totally forgotten about: Harassment.

Regular drivers (who say just want to run into a store to pick up some food), get badgered, harassed, and even sometimes threatened by these hypocrites enforcing these ludicrous laws designed only as a source of revenue for municipal glommers. There has to be a better way.

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 6/19/2014

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – June 19, 2014

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category, we have a photo and question from Hoboken resident Evan Michael.

“Can’t beat this one. HPU is more important than saving lives. I wonder what would happen if I parked my car there?”

Well, it’s clear as day that Evan was being sarcastic. Because if YOU parked there (regardless of your reason or for how long), you’d get your ass ticketed, booted or towed. And they MOCK you by happily breaking those very same laws without any repercussions.

I’ll repeat this again. At what given point does the “public at large” say “fuck you hypocrites!” and form an organized rebellion that gives them no choice but to stop?

Not anytime soon!

Because fines are “low enough” and the rest of the people are too lazy and would rather watch TV and not be bothered stopping “legal” thugs from stealing cold hard cash from the citizenry. But everything has a “breaking point” and by the time that happens, the “fan” will be covered in you know what.

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 6/16/2014

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – June 16, 2014

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category, today we’ll once again document what happens multiple times a day. The city doing the very same things that they’d STEAL from others for doing the same.

Here, an HPU (Hoboken Pickpocketing Underworld) van blatantly parks in a yellow zone near the intersection of 2nd & Washington.

Resident Dave who sent this in said: “Yellow paint must mean HPU only!”

$100 says that if Zimmer had to pay for each city violation out of her own bloated salary (with white-glove health insurance), these acts of hypocrisy would stop yesterday.
