Illinois Planning On Reinstating Drivers Licenses for Those With Non Moving Violations
"We're speaking of speaking of a larger cities in the state of Illinois Caroline and she's a Democrat representative lawmaker in Champaign we're talking about this plan to reinstate the driver's licenses of people who've lost them because they had done paid tickets non moving violations lot of parking tickets stack up next thing you know you've lost your driver's license you know it's a little surprised to be Carol I'll get to the criticism of this in a minute is that people evidently were complying with that that is their license get suspended so then they they do stop driving because they don't have a license is that what happens the majority of people not only do stop driving but they also lose their job because most jobs require a light in to work there sh and we saw that in forty two percent of individuals who lost their jobs it was due to suspension of their life some people say I'm I paid my ticket first of all I don't double park when I do I pay my fine and that's the way the game is played why are we why are we giving these people the break that I didn't get well you know it's interesting thing that we start in some of the research that we found not just in Illinois that injures in other places where you have significant income disparity you have to address this as a fair you government not at least of individual should we the moment that we're in right now and today happens to be the king holiday and change your mind that an unjust law is no law at all she and so if you have matched the disparity in income yes one person is Schomburg go L. hurt me because the pay their tickets with no problem but people who are just basically getting to or from work on public transit in trying to make sure they can feed their family on job cannot she hurt them in many many ways that others in Elmhurst the Schomburg may not understand and so it is important for us to look at equity it's important for us to look and stuff this and this was a significant so this issue because the majority of the suspension for black and brown people from the south and west side of Chicago and they were struggling to get from point a to point B. before their ticket or be for this expansion and and I also want to add that the city of Chicago this video Champaign or Urbana who signed it I did a parking ticket that may cost you thirty five cents and I I don't have any quarters mommy right so I spent that go along with the twenty five dollars who decided that that's what the penalty should be in the first place interesting question seven seven three said they can still boot you so that would be up to the municipality if they have a policy that your car sitting there it's got some tickets on it they boot your car that can still happen but you'll you will retain your driver's license do I understand that correctly Carol that is correct however I do believe that again we need to look at books and books is one of those things that I'm interested in studying as red as red light cameras all of the things that suck the kidneys and the cold out of the pocket the poor people we need to look at that government should not and this is the issue of liberty government should not you is the forty to abuse its citizens and this is what those kinda log do it abuse assistance I understand that and I don't even argue that but I do also hope you acknowledge that some of our listeners are thinking the citizens have an obligation to follow the laws and rules that everybody else is it will be more injurious to you if you don't have the means but we should all play by the same rules well we certainly are not playing by the same rules and I know we don't have time to argue that point yeah but clearly there's a disparity in income access and equity that no one can argue on either side of this this so we have to do what we can as legislators to bring justice and equity and balance balance all of the laws that we have been in this case this law as it currently existed prior to the final the bill did not met out equally and it certainly didn't represent justice clan had a question you're on WGN hi glad you're on the air why is it that a person who has the ability to pay the ticket why would they pay the ticket if there's no ramifications just because they're working and have the ability to pay they should feel some sort of just a moral responsibility to pay the debt I mean you're saying that it should be equal you're you're setting up to different levels of law for individuals based on their income and you know in your own words just said because people are poor they shouldn't be able to be struggling well the people who are wealthy enough to be able to pay the tickets shouldn't be penalized why are you setting you're setting a double standard in your own words that you don't want to do hi doesn't make sense why would I want to hold on hold on yeah yeah that's you're point go ahead good girl I actually I actually have an agreement with your caller I believe that people like you and I in your caller who pay taxes for the role that we drag one already that we already provide our income to the government to function and then on top of a government that something called meters are tollway make additional dollars I don't actually think it's right well that's how they maintain the roads I mean not good meters in tolls are going to go away I think that the principal point he's making is that if we're going to have forgiveness for people we should maybe have you know that that that won't be equitable that's not fair either then right I mean if you can't pay okay that's tough for you I'm sorry about that but I can so my the only one that has to pay but but that's not what we're talking about here you still owe the debt the point is are we going to let you keep your driver's license that's what this is about right at and we are going to let you keep your driver's license and I still do have to pay the ticket by the way yeah yeah even though they give amnesty to those who may not have all the money at one point they allow you to set up a realistic payment plan let's think about this previous payment plan if it is Chicago requires you to put down a down payment so it was always back yeah yes your color baby could pay the down payment but others really could not and that is a function of government government decided to put this except the down payment there sh and eight at the conditions for which a person could not pay sh and now we're saying no you cannot spend that like this sh the city Chicago is reforming how it is collecting your parking tickets so yes you still got to pay that parking ticket now well I I completely agree with you about setting a reasonable means for people to pay back if you have a hundred dollars in tickets you should pay a hundred dollars in tickets but it shouldn't now become a thousand dollars because you didn't get it done in time I'd be happy to get there I'd be happy to give fifty the hundred to be honest with you the these ballooning payments I you're right somebody just made that up and you might as well charge people a million dollars Hey Chicago want to charge him a million Bucks and then all of our financial problems will be solved no wait it won't because you can't get a million dollars from people they don't have it yeah I don't have it let's let's do you realize up in bankruptcy court yeah but what about this report but not me what about this Eric you're on hold on a second Eric hold on a second are cold on a second there hello did you get that Eric you have some say on the radio what was your point Eric said the parking meters Carol are there for a reason they're there because you don't you know you need you don't want people to be there all day long it's not just a money maker it's also a way to regulate flowed you understand that I I'm certainly understand that but I think you're you're a collar and others should look a little deeper into who owns the parking meters that is true we we so we should not have sold those things at the sky way along time ago I agree with you on that its it's goes into effect July first is that right representative that is correct that the jury stated putting provisions in place to notify those who would be eligible to have their eyes since reinstated and you go to took that chance July one twenty twenty nice to talk to you we you and I have not met before by the way do you have anything to say I was just reading in the Chicago Tribune over the weekend about how Mike Madigan has this gigantic series of funds that he's able to control and he spent over four hundred thousand dollars in legal fees in the last few months the Tribune has a large editorial it was it yesterday or today saying he should step down from his speakership role do you agree with that you know I have been here I have I'm from Champaign Urbana so I don't I don't get sick of it should be clear here but I have not seen that story I think what is happening in Springfield and you'll see in the spring fashion that there would be many people calling for significant reforms and ethics reforms and I think that will fall in that same category yeah well that's not you saying yes though I'm not saying yes to lose his job just stepped down as speaker you're not calling for that yet home yeah I don't have I have not seen it at all and I have been called for anything at this point but what I am calling for is that there needs to be significant reform and ethics as well as campaign finance reform took all of that it's all tied together that you're describing representative and it's nice to talk to thanks for joining us on

"Upward which Madigan warrants could lead to more toxic algae and eventually threatened the supply of drinking water for public news service. I'm Suzanne Potter. We used to have a program here on KPFA called freedom is at constant struggle. Us to air at six thirty on Sundays and had a rotating roster of hosts one of whose names was Frank talk. And boy, did they let it talk. It was. Show a about activism and politics, radical politics. Radical activists grassroots activists of history and the present day, and what people wanted to happen. And what people thought about what was going on in the country. Freedom is the constant struggle. Community radio is a constant struggle listener, sponsored radio is a constant struggle to. Constant struggle to raise the amount of money that we need to keep this radio station on the air, and it is especially difficult a difficult constant struggle for KPFA. And I wanna tell you why partly that is. It's just a hard sell. I mean, consider consider the newscast just internet cell for a moment. It is an hour of hard news. There are no soft stories in it. There's no sports. There's very little entertainment news. Even the weather is truncated down to the kind of basic facts that will be in a. Sunshiny or it will be rain will be this temperature or that temperature not a whole lot of there's no chatter the anchors don't chat back and forth. This just you know, it's if you have to sit here for an hour and take it all in that. That's I'm confess that is a bit of work. Maybe even a struggle. But beyond that. KPFA itself is. A hard sell. And here is why it has a multi. It's a multi format station several years ago, the corporation for public broadcasting which funds and aids public radio and television. But this particular program was for radio from the B was called the healthy stations program. And it went to all the public station said it helped fund in the country and told them they should have one single format. In other words, you should be all talk or all music, but don't mix the two. And if you're going to be all music, you should be all one kind of music. You should be all classical why you should be all rock or all popular. Well. Faye? Did not take the. Healthy station initiative initiative, and we remained what we are which is multi format. It's both talk and music. And when you look at the music and listen to the music, it's all different kinds of music. And that is a patchwork format it makes it difficult to listen to KPFA because sometimes you turn it on. You don't know what you're going to get and. Oh time. You don't like what you get simply because you don't like the kinda music or you don't happen to like with the host is saying about this. News topic or public affairs matter. So it's a constant struggle here KPFA because of what we are. And we are ninety percent listener sponsored by that. I mean nine out of every ten dollars that we expand comes from you, the listener, and it's hard to raise that amount of money. But we've got to do it. If we're going to remain the type of radio station that we are. So it's a constant struggle. And we are in the middle of a struggle right now to raise the amount of money, we need to keep going in this winter fund drive, and we are almost two thirds of the way through the fund drive, and we are not quite yet at halfway towards our goal..

"And there was you know, there was really that feeling at least in that race. You know that he wasn't from the neighborhood. He wasn't black enough right, which now you look back, and you know, there's some irony to that as well. You actually leapfrog ahead of him for a while there, and you got elected attorney general in two thousand and two and one of the questions, then was and this was a place where the Madigan name was a help and a hindrance, but you hadn't practiced law, very long and were you qualified for this job. And you had a very specific view of what the job was. And felt you had the right skill set for it. And it wasn't. It's not a criminal in the main a criminal in Illinois. It's not some state's attorney generals have more criminal prosecutorial responsibilities not in Illinois. So in most big states in the United States. The attorney general is not your frontline criminal prosecutor so here in Illinois, New York, California, right? They all have state's attorneys are district attorneys. Is that they're electing out of counties to be the frontline prosecutors? So when there's a murderer rape robbery. Those are the people that bring those indictments whereas in Illinois, your state, your state attorney general is really the lawyer for the people of the state of the three hundred plus four hundred lawyers in the annoy attorney general's office. Eighty five percent of them are civil lawyers. So yes, there's a criminal component. But it's very different component with much more constrained authority than your state's attorneys. Now there are times when the attorney general will step in to the role of a state's attorney. But that tends to be limited to circumstances where there's a conflict of interest. So if an assistant state's attorney is convicted or is picked up for drunk driving that office can't prosecute one of their own or in this happens with some frequency. Unfortunately, there is a. Triple quadruple murder that takes place in downstate county, where they don't have the resources to prosecute that case, then we had a very elite group of criminal. Prosecutors who would come in and work with that county state's attorney to affect that. We're just the attorney general of intervene here to appeal a sentence that was given to Jason Van Dyke. The police officer who shot and killed Liquan McDonald. You got a six and a half year sentence and the attorney general and the special counsel, prosecuted Van Dyke are appealing to the state supreme court on the on the length of the sense. So that's another place in which the ju- agree, by the way with that decision intervene. I think that that was the right decision because there is an open question of law. It would take us a while to talk about it. But in essence, you're supposed to sentence somebody based on the most serious offense and. Well, to you know, the average person second degree murder sounds more serious than than aggravated battery. The reality is when you actually look at the sentences in situation here, the second degree murder is only a first degree felony. Whereas the other one is a class x felony and one of them only carries the provisions that fifty percent of your time needs to be served. Whereas the other one is eighty five percent of the time. And so it's a little flipped, and that's why they've asked because there is case law here in the state that would say that the judge may not have followed the law. The last thing you did as attorney general was a to enter into a consent decree with the city. Over the issue police conduct police reform, what what what is the status of police community relations here, you know, this is been from the time. I was I arrived here. This has been an issue. Ralph Metcalf was a congressman in Chicago who broke with mayor Daley in the seventies over a police misconduct and excessive force and so on what did you find? When you got into this issue..

"So the far west side of the city to pioneer community policing strategies as a crime reduction method that had that point not been adopted citywide in Chicago, but there were some jurisdictions in the United States were they were doing that. And it was being affective. And so it was interesting. I went on sort of an informational interview that somebody had connected me to these folks. And they said to me, look if you could do anything, what would you be doing right now? And I. Very honestly said, look, I wanna be you know, helping kids I just had this extrordinary experience in South Africa. And they looked back at me and told me what they were doing. And I said, oh, my gosh sign me up, and you know, it was kind of random situation. But after that, I was spending my afternoon in my weekends in the roll-call room of an old Chicago police station, more on the hill street blues model than these fancy new ones, look like libraries or community centers, and we were bringing kids in after school and on the weekends. And it was everybody from first graders through twelfth graders. And we were trying to kind of keep them engaged in their education. But we were also trying to keep them off the streets and away from the gangs. So they didn't become part of the criminal Justice system. And instead, you know, they would stay engaged get an education and be able to you know, help themselves and help their communities more. So it was this just another really unique and. Important opportunity, but it was both being in South Africa. And then working on the west side that finally said to me, oh, no, no. I want to law school because I want to have a credential that will allow me to continue to do the social Justice work and to help people. And so I finally decided I would go to law school. But to be honest, I wasn't so sure I was going to like it or be good at it. So I went at night initially to loyal and turns out great, and I loved it. So even though it's supposed take me four years to get out after a year and a half of doing part time. I, you know, squashed on my classes into the last year and a half and got out in three years. And and you you spent four years in a law firm, and then you ran for the state Senate on north head. And it was you ran against a guy who who had been there for quite a while as a state rep and a state Senator a guy who was a loyal at. Here in to your your your daddy's may a part of the caucus in the house. He also is a guy who is under indictment. I think at the time that you challenged him, which is sadly, not an heard of development here in the city of Chicago..

"We're talking about a really phenomenal guy who he got me out of journalism, and I went to work for him when he ran for the United States Senate. He was a congressman from southern Illinois, a guy who quit a college and bought a small town newspaper in southern Illinois and crusaded against a crime syndicate down there, and and fought for civil rights and political reform and very courageously and was kind of one of a kind big jug years and horn rimmed glasses. He wore bowtie, perfect voice for radio, you did he had this. He could. Have done the farm report every every single day. But he also I don't know if you know this. But you know, when I was working for them. I noticed that his suits were all a little short his pants, and I suppose you're and it turned out that a constituent passed away and was so fond of Paul that they be quite their suits to him. And he never got them. Never bothered to get the pants adjusted. A great story. And it's not a surprise. You know, Paul Simon was in extrordinary public servant, clearly a public servant at heart. And he was I mean everywhere we went he would talk to absolutely everybody, and he hadn't ability to connect with into engage with a broad range of people and what I will always. Remember about him is that even if people disagreed with him, they respected him and he had such a following. Because there were some issues that he was you know, out in front of war. He would be you know, I would say in southern Illinois being against the death penalty may not have been considered the politically frankly for civil rights, correct absolutely on civil rights, but people respected him, and he always took the time. I think because of his journalism background. He was always writing. He was putting out those weekly columns, and he was explain themselves and staying connected with the public in with the voters. And so he did very very well. And even when he left office he continued like you to develop the next generation of public servants, southern Illinois. Exactly, he was a in everywhere lovely person. I miss him still you left after college. You went to South Africa. And I was wondering whether there was a Paul had anything to do with inspiring you in that regard because he was a huge proponent for foreign exchanges. He also had a big focus on Africa. So I'm wondering how you came to make that decision. So when I was working in his office in Washington. My recollection is that Paul actually chaired the African subcommittee from the foreign affairs committee, and he did an enormous amount of work, particularly in Nigeria. I recall in your hundred percent right about his advocacy that young people travel outside of the country. So they have a different perspective. And they learn about other people in other cultures. And it did have an impact on me. I already had an interest in Africa and taken an enormous number of classes about post, colonial sub Saharan Africa in. So when I graduated in. In nineteen eighty eight. This was at the time where the anti-apartheid movement was very strong, and you had universities and colleges around the country who were under pressure to divest their assets in South African companies eventually, Georgetown. Agreed. They would do that. But in addition they wanted to add something into the country. And so what they decided to do in partnership with the South African Catholic Bishops Conference is to send over recent graduates to volunteer teach in needy Catholic high schools and so several weeks after I graduated I got on a plane and went to Johannesburg, South Africa. An ultimately went down to a place called Montebello, which is a school that was about an hour and a half north west of Durban in KwaZulu, and I found myself with a government degree in an English minor suddenly teaching to giant sections of algebra..

"I mean, what do you remember about that? It wasn't a good situation. So it was a bit of a rough time. You know, I think I did much better the second time around when it comes to dads. Yeah. You're famously your mom married. Mike Madigan who's the longest serving legislative leader in the in the country. We'll we'll we'll get to that. But and I don't want to try it on on a difficult rounds? But headed impact you as a child these what you describe as difficulties. Well, I was an only child for the first twelve years of my life. And I certainly saw what it was like for single mom to raise her daughter at a time where not a lot of my friends if really any of my friends families were divorced not a lot of the moms who were working fulltime to support the family. And so I was kind of, you know, one of those latchkey kids before the really was such a thing that I at least knew about. But in a lot of ways, you know, there's always good with the bad. Right. And for me, I had an opportunity to see my mom out there working and to recognize she was working a law firm. She was a receptionist at a law firm, and I had an opportunity because of that because the people who work there were very nice. I would sometimes go there after school. And so I grew up in some part in a law firm, and you know, so getting to see what lawyers do, and I still remember when they hired the first woman ask at the law firm and thinking, wow. And it was really interesting because, you know, of course, all the secretaries and all the receptionist the paralegals, they were all women all the lawyers were men. And so when they hired the first woman, it was really interesting because she was somebody who was friends with obviously, both all the men who were the lawyers and all the women who were on staff, but it really opened my eyes to the fact that. Look, this is something women can do. And when you were ten or so. She remarried. I should ask you. This was your birth father in your life at all or he was up to that point. And then he wasn't for a long time. And he's now deceased. But. I think to the point you're about to get to very startling when my mom got remarried impart because we move from the north side of Chicago to the south west side of Chicago. Because that's where his district is. And you know, you know, Chicago, very well. It's a whole city made up of a lot of different needs distinctive neighborhoods, very distinctive neighborhoods, and the south side of Chicago is is nothing like the north side of Chicago in some ways. Side. Did you live? We were on the near north side, essentially, you know, in between Diversey in Belmont near Broadway. So we should just for those of you who aren't from Chicago which appoint the cultural Gulf, especially at that time. I mean, the nearside is Kaga was sort of the hub of liberalism anti machine ISM. It was kind of more avant-garde in terms of culture. I think we're in the forty third war. I remember going to the very first pride parade when it took plays. And then when I moved to the south west side, I remember of Catholic, very Catholic. So do your point. I remember riding my bike and being stopped by some girls..

The value of fortnight's maker epic has swelled to nearly fifteen billion dollars from less than one billion in less than six years. The Wall Street Journal reported such in October. Furthermore, the takeover game is not only reshaping American spend their time. But also how they communicate. And the Wall Street Journal's Betsy Morris reports that it may also care at family relationships in ways that few if any video games have done before.

When they showed it to me. Jamie Madigan author of getting gamers explains. The key social components of the game. That are changing the way young people communicate most of the most popular games like fortnight, and others are social so you're playing within against other people. You're communicating with them. You're talking outside of the game about the matches. You had last night or coordinating schedules? So that you can play together today after school, and it is a much more interactive social experience than it has been in the past. I've a bunch of friends on here that play and they won't get on when gets off one gets on. And then I play with gets on which they keep saying, it's a different way to interact socially now than like, for example. Go into part, I'd say, it's it's really cool because it lets you communicate with people that you don't really see that much. Parents are noticing the change in social behavior. Firsthand fortnight is a big part of. Of his social life, and of what makes them happy these to play more of a variety of things. But at some point it was just fortnight. That's it for him and all his friends you really wants to play with his friends are on. So he's not as interested in playing when they're not on. And then there is the already addictive nature of video games to contend with. And how some say fortnight takes things to a new level people like activities that make them feel like they're mastering something and getting better at it. They like activities that make them feel important to other people to the extent that that activity satisfies those needs people are motivated to keep doing it and come back to it. I sometimes I feel like from. I'd say I play enough via wearing after a couple of months playing you might get a little dicta to it. It hits a lot of buttons with in terms of reward. And we have many kids that we can compare him to there seems to be such a trend in some similarities between the mall in terms of not really. Wanting to get back to it wanting to play it for a long period of time. He just seemed to really be fixated on this game. Even when he wasn't playing it. You get nervous when you see your kid staring at a scream incessantly for four hours. I'm concerned that it's very addictive, and that it takes so much time away from everything else. You're trying to be the good parent and not be too permissive. You don't want this to get out from under you where it's something that you're having constant battles about. And where you feel like as a parent. You don't have a say in any any limit setting with it.
