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.

About Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day
The HPU Hypocrisy of the Day is a photo feature on Hoboken411.com.

Created out of need – this section features the blatant hypocrisy in the Hoboken city government. Get this – Parking “laws” were created under the guise that it is either for “safety of residents, drivers and pedestrians,” or to “make parking more fair for law abiding citizens.”

The city, however – VIOLATES those very same laws. The bottom line is THEY DON’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT SAFETY. They just want your MONEY.

You frustrated with the hypocrisy? Caught them on film? Simply email Hoboken411@gmail.com with your photo, location and sorry story!

The reason there is no uprising is because governments everywhere strive to find that sweet spot that achieves both compliance and lack of widespread anger. Push the fines and frequency high enough and you will get blowback. The art and nuance of legalized thievery for centuries. This is also why the vast majority of civilizations and governments are long gone. They got greedy. No one learns from history on both sides of the political spectrum.


I kind of want to order a boot online and designate it “The Citizens Boot” to be applied in situations like this.
