City Council,
The owners of the commercial truck and commercial dumpster have NOW been illegally parked and stored for 7 days in a row on W. Elm Street by the stop sign.
This situation is the longest that City Council has allowed the illegal activities of the Police Department and Code Enforcement to continue such public corruption, with this illegal storing of a commercial truck and dumpster in a residential neighborhood. 
So, this is a formal complaint against the Chief of Police, Bruce Goodman, and Code Enforcement personnel, William Kingston.
It is situation is just so disgusting to me, that I am physically sick to my stomach, as I write this e-mail.
It is obvious that you are allowing the ignoring our parking laws by our Police Department and Code Enforcement Department, on purpose, in my humble opinion, with regard to your non actions.  What horrible, corrupt ways by City Council.
Channel 7 News Investigative reporting told me last spring that the illegal Code Enforcement/Police Department/City Council activities are "Public Corruption", per our State laws.  They gave me our State URL address, in case I wanted to report you folks on a State level first, which I have not done, to date. 
I am hoping, beyond hope, that you people come to your senses.
Channel 7 News Investigative reporting would not take my case, until I had "at least" 1.5 years worth of proof of our town's illegal goings on.
And I now that I have that proof, thanks to Code Enforcement's illegal activities, I have all the documented proofs on my web pages for the world to see.
So, I sent my complaints, about City Council allowing Code Enforcement and the Police Department to undermine the integrity of our City, to Channel 7 News Investigative reporting, instead of reporting it through our "verified statement" system.
I just don't trust our own internal procedures for filing illegal activities against our Police Chief and William Kingston.  Those procedures
seems so evil and corrupt and one sided, but it is all we have!!!!!  Disappointing, to say the least.
Unfortunately, I will have to be reporting these illegal activities of the Police Department and Code Enforcement Department through our own internal procedures very soon to follow through to make sure somebody, somewhere, does something/anything to stop this insane madness. 
I want to see what Channel 7 does first, though.  I may get lucky, and I may not have to do anything.  But, I doubt it. 
I want you folks to know that I don't want to have to meet in person with any body, anywhere to sign a "verified statement", as I dislike going to horrible places and talking to corrupt people, no matter where they are. 
But one must do, what one must do. 
Here is a pic from Sunday, September 22. I did not take a pic, yet today, as it is raining and I do not want to ruin my camera, just to take one pic to send to you people as proof.  I will publish today's pic online with the rest of my evidence, when the rains stops later on today.   
Besides, you folks know this is a continuing ongoing situation.
Notice the dark car parked next to Sundance Park, again!  Code Enforcement has lost all control.  Those renters ignore Code Enforcement and our parking laws.  It is always the renters.  And the homeowners notice the huge preferential treatment to the many renters in our neighborhood. 
The home owners eventually obey our laws, when told by Code Enforcement, as they live here permanently, and renters do not, as they are temporary residents in our neighborhood. 
Code Enforcement shows favoritism, plain and simple, by allowing our neighborhood to become a public parking lot with the renters getting away with anything and everything.  There is no way around it, through the actions of our Code Enforcement Department and the Chief of Police by allowing such illegal actions.  No words can deny their uncivil, dirty deeds.  Only good actions will undo their negative actions.
With the homeowner house in the enclosed pic, at the end of the street with the green garage door, there lives a single, retired homeowner lady.  She is just terrified of the police.  She has watched me have parking discussions with Code Enforcement, and she did not/will not say anything.
She very much dislikes having vehicles illegally parked week after week, month after month, year after year right across from her house. 
She and others don't want to be treated the way you treat me, with such contempt and disrespect for a tax paying Senior Citizen.  So, they remain silent and unidentified, as homeowners, like my neighbor lady on W. Elm Street with the home improvements.
You folks act like you are above the law.  It totally amazes me. 
The Chief of Police scares you, on the City Council, through his bully tactics, to try to force you to see the law through his rose colored glasses, to attain his own ends for his own purposes, without thought or regard on how his actions affect others.  How utterly sad. 
You are aware that these are his tactics with each new City Council.  Right?  Right.
Hopefully, you can get this town under control.
Pure evil does not scare me at all.  I face it head on, like I am doing now.  
I would have sent you this information yesterday, but it was Sunday, a day of rest.
There are 2 new folks running for Ward 2.  They will receive my web page URL address showing the public corruption going on by our elected officials.  Hopefully, they will be able to sift through the Police Chief's lies and fix this corrupt City Council's ways of doing business in this town. 
This is an FYI e-mail only. 
I expect no harassing response from you folks.  I just expect action, like in somebody doing the work they are paid to do in the Police Department and the Code Enforcement Department.
You folks are in my daily meditations and prayers, so that hopefully, some day, you will see your nasty, emotional, illogical ways and stop acting the way you do with your free will status.

This is from our Ethics Code

"Open Government & Ethics Pamphlet 2013
Other Ethics Rules of Interest 
Page 7

It also prohibits acts of advantage or favoritism and, in that regard, prohibits special considerations, use of employee time for personal or private 
reasons, and use of City vehicles or equipment, except in same manner as available to any other person (or in manner that will substantially benefit City)."

"Last night we heard from the owners of the truck.  It belongs to a couple who recently moved to Louisville and who just purchased the vehicle.  The husband and wife are a little distressed about why the selective enforcement against them.  Commander Kingston will speak with them and convey our assurances that this is all quite routine and innocent. "

This quote is from a May 25, 2012 e-mail to me from Bruce Goodman, Police Chief.  He knows the rules.  He applies them when he wants.  He is a bully.  He does not do his job that he is paid to do.  He should be fired on the spot.  If he did his job correctly, the first time he contacted the owners, he would not be  backed into a corner to save face.  Now, he will not do his job, just to try to prove he is correct, when he is so very wrong.
