Guy grabs a woman by the hair, pulls her down to the ground, puts a hand on her mouth and grabs her around the throat....she fights him off so no way to know what he had in mind but...that's a misdemeanor?

A good lawyer should be able to get the ticket squashed easily. Chula Vista's Muni code reads, "...the City can contract with....for the preparation or conducting of exams in the City service or for the performance of any other personnel administration service.”

That section of the code clearly speaks to the issue of exams for positions with the City and personnel administration. Issuing tickets is far from that and parking law enforcement is not remotely "personnel administration." Administering to personnel is to work with those who fall under the classification of personnel, which are the employees, not the public.

Interesting story. Seems like paying an expensive company like Ace works against the city in more than one way. Downtown Chula Vista is struggling to survive as it is.

Great story... Does this company operate anywhere without scandal and or broken promises? One of the regions most questionable operations owned and operated by flawed characters of the highest order. A real danger to your wallet in the name of FAMILY GREED.

Can you say CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT? That what these ticket seem to be adding up to.

The legal word might be quashed, but back in the neighborhood where I grew up, when you wanted to put a stop to things, you had them squashed. Nothing legal about it, but it was very effective.
