In a letter delivered to Pastors today from her Department of Public Health, Mayor Heavy Hand warns the Churches:
"This Notice to Abate is being served upon you as the leader of your congregation. Given the heightened risk of spread of COVID19 in gatherings of 10 of more, you are hereby ordered to abate immediately. You are prohibited from having any in-person gatherings contrary to the Executive Order. You are required to cancel all gatherings contrary to the law. If you continue to host gatherings in violation of the Executive Order, the City of Chicago will take ALL NECESSARY MEASURES to abate the nuisance." (all capital emphases supplied by me)
The letter ends with this chilling THREAT in the very last sentence:
"Any future gatherings conducted contrary to the Order will be considered a failure to abate and the City will take steps necessary to abate, INCLUDING SUMMARY ABATEMENT."
In a case called City of Kankakee v. New York Cent. R. Co., 387 Ill. 109 (1944), the Illinois Supreme Court has defined "Summary Abatement" under common law as follows:
“Summary abatement would mean TO PUT DOWN OR DESTROY WITHOUT PROCESS. This means the inspector can, upon his own judgment, cause the alleged nuisance to stop on his own authority and effect A DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY AT HIS DISCRETION.”
Therefore, when Mayor Heavy Hand threatens that she will take "all necessary measures," including "summary abatement," she is threatening to take whatever action she wants, ***up to and including the destruction of the Churches, without any due process or judicial proceeding.
It is hard for me to believe I am writing these words in the Land of the Free. We have alerted the Department of Justice. And, we now have a clear reason to petition the Supreme Court of the United States immediately to intervene.
The Churches will NOT be intimidated. Services WILL proceed as scheduled tomorrow. They appreciate your prayers, and we do too.
Go ahead Madam Beetlejuice just tear down all the churches that do not comply with your demands. Please do that. I wont hide and claim that i dont hate that crazy bitch because of course i do. Whenever she dies it will be a case of addition by subtraction and a day for celebration. Dont talk about it Beetlejuice, carry on with your threats.
