The Chicago Sewers: Kimball Sidewalk Manhole (Gallery 28)

This is not Kimball tunnel! Kimball is a North-South street, this is a East-West tunnel. It doesn't seem to be a street sewer so it doesn't really have a name.

I did not take good photos of the tunnel in the tunnel, so I had to go back the next night after viewing the photos that didn't turn out good and get some new ones.

12:21 a.m.

12:22 a.m.

I noticed that when viewing the photos on my laptop, the images look darker, than on my school's computer, so try not viewing these photos on a laptop screen.

Shortly after the above photo was taken, in less than half a minute or so, cops were at the top with the flashlights down, and I was shortly arrested.

For now, see my Facebook for details.

Arrested at 12:22 a.m. by C.P.D. clock.

Very few things in the appellate court require only 1 judge's signature (so it doesn't matter if the other 3 oppose it). But for the majority of things, you need a majority's vote, so that's 3 of 4 judges. (And it doesn't have to be the 1st 3 judges, it can be the 1st 2nd and 4th, the 1st 3rd and 4th judge, 2nd 3rd and 4th judge, etc.).

Table of fees paid.

Venue Cost For
Cook County Office $9.45 ($3.15/page) Transcript, to give to Clerk
Clerk of Cook County Court $110 Record of appeal, to give to Illinois Appellate Court
Illinois Appellate Court $0 Criminal appeal
Illinois Appellate Court $25* Re-opening
Illinois Supreme Court $25 Appeal
U.S. Supreme Court $25 Appeal (In Forma Pauperis)
U.S. District Court $350 Judge's order
U.S. Court of Appeals $5 Docketing statement
U.S. Court of Appeals $450 Appeal

Plus post office fees.

* Note that the re-opening fee in the Illinois Appellate Court could have been waived had I wrote a motion.

Also note that had the U.S. Supreme Court chose to accept my appeal, but denied my In Forma Pauperis (the other 2 federal courts did), then I would have had to pay $350 instead of $25. Plus other printing methods.


You may notice an irony here: Judge Posner here is turning down my bullet-proof vest, but yet he is later famous for his decision on supporting carrying guns outside the house, a move that disappointed Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Lisa Madigan, and so and so forth. He supports carring guns outside but had prior taken down the case with my bullet-proof vest (although actually not at all related).


So I've lost a criminal appeal as well as lost in civil lawsuits. And let's not forget I've also never had a girlfriend before, never been on a date with a girl, never been kissed by a girl, never held hands with a girl, and at the age of 25, still a virgin. Essentially, I'm an all-round loser.


In Feb. 2019, I found out that the final Cook County state's attorney that ultimately denied my level II vest, Matthew Heinlen, no longer works as a state's attorney. I 1st viewed his Facebook in 2011, where it says assistant state's attorney for Cook County, and again in Feb. 2019, where it says he left in 2016. I wonder if he can reverse his decision (no conflict of interest anymore). Ah well, it's a depressing world.
