Dan Burley, a longtime columnist for the Chicago Defender, took pleasure in recounting how club owner Harold Parker had struck back against a Chicago motorcycle cop who had the audacity to cite him for not having a city sticker.

Parker, like Richard Pryor’s grandmother Marie, appears to have known how to use the law to fight back against the law. He took the matter to the district captain and the State’s Attorney office, and, according to Burley, the motorcycle cop was reprimanded.
