Midnight at Hudson & Essex a young man from NYC was held up at gunpoint by two thugs who took his stuff and ran along the light rail tracks to getaway.

Re: NYPD: Drunken Jersey City cop mows down and kills young woman, injures man in lower Manhattan

If Abreu was southbound on West Street from Albany he was heading toward the BB Tunnel or the FDR Drive. Did they leave one bar and make for another or just bombed and lost? The partner, man or woman, should be made known. My confidence in that person is gone.

Re: Dixon Mills Area Safety

Anytime of the day is not safe. Police presence zero. The Downtown of Jersey City is in a way more perilous than Avenue C or D or E in Manhattan. The only lifeline you have is the Dixon Mills shuttle & then ask yourself why is there a shuttle for just a few blocks. More than a convenience, it's a lifesaver.

Gee, and I thought all that big, old development going on would make the taxes smaller for us strapped homeowners & the like but I guess we also have to pay for the 300 new cops Healy hired. You've seen them, right?

Has anyone read Lipski's incredible remarks in the February 1st edition of the Jersey City Reporter wherein he states on page 13: "Lipski said his Polish-Irish background made him susceptible to alcohol. He recalled as a young boy being given drinks by relatives." But wait, listen to this: "Actually, my drinking increased as I started seeing my future wife, since I was socializing with her Dominican relatives more, and I was trying to fit in with them," Lipski said. WOW!!

Re: Downtown: One dead in shooting on Coles Street in Jersey City this morning

The store on Marin (Henderson) was held up at gunpoint by two thugs in ski masks two weeks ago at 8:30 PM. This is one block south of City Hall. The thugs ran out toward Montgomery Street. The owner franctically called the P.D.
It took TWENTY minutes for the response. The owner is scared as are many other merchants I've talked to. Violent crime is rampant throughout this city. Merchants and residents should march on City Hall.

Does anyone remember the scores of mountain bikes the JCPD bought in the not too long ago and officers would ride up and down the streets able to maneuver easily...It was a friendly presence and the lid was on not too long ago...and our present Mayor was not in office...where are those bikes today? They cost about $800 each and if there was one there were a couple hundred throughout the city...that's not a police state...that's doing a good job keeping us safe...so where's the bikes now?

Not quite the answer. The store owner who died today and the bodega clerk who died last week won't have any tomorrows. What must be done should have been done many yesterdays ago. The politicians are in a boozefog state of mind thinking only of themselves.

A police officer is a police officer twenty four hours a day. When he puts on a uniform and wears his gun the presumption is that he will protect the citizen. When the police officer is working an "off duty" job he is paid by a construction company, a utility or a private citizen. That police officer is not too willing to leave that spot to assist you in your time of need. Does'nt make them good or bad...it's the way it is. When people see mucho cops at job sites and none on patrol something's wrong. No need for these jobs. Putting in that extra "off duty" job and then driving home way out of Jersey City does'nt make that P.O. more efficient to serve the public. If the police work these off duty jobs let them wear civilian clothes and not their uniforms misleading the public that there are many cops out there. The police and its brass are on the "clock" at these community meetings so they'll listen to you complain 'til midnite. Good night and Good Luck!

Re: Next Meeting with Captain McDonough

The "off duty" job for the JCPD has come to symbolize all that is wrong with the way police are deployed in Jersey City. These lucrative jobs are the platinum parachutes of the P.O.'s pension. The population of Jersey City is growing daily but our city services are shrinking. Look at the new highrises, commercial and residential...figure out the units and you will see how much more we need to be protected. The off duty jobs should be eliminated immediately save for the most perilous instance. There were three off duty cops standing around Newark & Jersey at 10 AM. This is nuts.
This was the time the storeowner was killed. Healy and his administration as well the politicized hierarchy of the JCPD must be held accountable. When Healy announced for reelection last week he had the JCPD, Fire Department and the Parking Authority there in force. That's proof of the political influence on these departments. Healy's rah-rah commercials are total crap in light of what is happening in all areas of this city daily.

How about a Jersey City Police Sergeant in uniform, Police car parked outside, getting his eyebrows threaded at an Indian Hair Salon on Newark Avenue near Tonnele at 11 AM while another P.O. waited for him. The Police Car was marked Municipal Court. Life is good.

Re: Pesky helicopter

The miracle was over on Thursday. What is at a pier in lower Manhattan is the almost completely submerged hulk of the aircraft. Nothing happened today to be recorded for posterity. It may be lifted tomorrow. This does not justify three helicopters in the air over lower Jersey City for seven hours. The noise is not the paramount issue. Just being above our heads is a risk. This would not be allowed over Manhattan.

Re: Pesky helicopter

There are THREE helicopters over us, hovering over a populated area in below freezing temps when it ain't safe to fly these things. They were there Thursday as well for a long period of time. No doubt they are focusing on the USAIR removal. The choppers can't hover over the river so they'll do it over us. Three separate news groups who don't pool their feed and we get stuck with the noise. It's like a war zone.

A miracle landing on the Hudson today. For the last fifteen minutes four news choppers are hovering over the downtown section of jersey City in 10 degree temperatures reporting on what we already know. How safe does this make you feel ? They've been there since 7PM. It's now 7:16PM.

USAIR enroute from laGuardia to Charlotte NC apparently hit something in the air after take-off. 135 people on board, pilot landed smooth on water, plane still intact. People exiting and many ferries dropping life preservers in water.

Has the matter of Jimmy King and his tenure as the head of the Jersey City Parking Authority been settled? Last I heard he left under a cloud regarding contributions from JCPA employees to erect billboards promoting his civic group and an investigatiion into the finances of the JCPA. Does anyone recall?

Re: Lafayette Community -Not taking it anymore!
Home away from home
Home away from home


Lafayette: You are right...the citizens of this city want the JC Administration to enforce the law for all. With regard to the young people idolizing the behavior of "superstars" as someone said it is also important for the elected officials to set an example by their behavior. I believe we all know too well of the antics of some of them in the recent past and this is unfortunate because they become distracted from their sworn duty to protect and serve us in order to defend their obnoxious behavior. Their ability to lead is compromised and we suffer as a result. No area of this country is immune from scandal but we have to be concerned about the fleas on our own dog.

Re: Lafayette Community -Not taking it anymore!

By any measure it is clear the criminal justice system has failed...the offender and the one offended are victims of a vicious cycle of incarceration and recidivism. The penal institutions are schools of higher learning for our young people. The question on the table is the safety of our citizens. The community demands that. Yes, it would help a great deal if the police lived here. What does it mean if they fear the criminal and won't act? The citizens are asked to report to them but the citizen should have no fear if the cops take hours to arrive after reporting "shots fired".

Re: Lafayette Community -Not taking it anymore!
Home away from home
Home away from home


The notion that the "better" part of the downtown section gets a better police presence is false...it is this type of dialogue that divides rather than unites communities. The police are virtually invisible except when seen at construction sites. Brutal attacks are happening everywhere in this city while the Mayor boasts about hiring more police and beefing up gang units. The good people in Lafayette and the rest of the city are asked to help the police and report criminal activity. The police are not pro-active in the pursuit of crime. They respond to the brushfires instead. When the new police officers hit the streets they are eager to do their jobs. Most police officers are good people who soon are educated by the doctrine of "don't make waves", "get all the off-duty jobs you can & beef up your pension" "go home safe at night & get out in twenty years". The majority of the police do not reside in Jersey City. For the most part their hearts and minds are not here. The leadership, or lack thereof, is at the root cause of this crisis. The population of Jersey City has increased significantly while its resources have dwindled. If the boozefog politicians had a clue and were concerned and had a plan and did their jobs people would not have to trek out at night in the dead of winter to complain.

Mayor Healy is all over TV citing hires of more cops, new gang units, gun buy-backs etc. & any given day of the week we hear crime is on the upswing...a store owner is held up at gunpoint by two punks and the store owner waits twenty minutes for the PD to respond...these good people in the Heights have done the PD's job for them...it's total doo-doo...So do this: Get the cops you do have devote their full energies in fighting crime...Eliminate the off-duty jobs completely for the PD...Total emergencies only...Keep the cops fresh for their tour of duty...The boozefog politicos think they're practicing the tenets of "Urban Renewal" when what it is they are practicing is "Bourbon Renewal"...a couple of drinks and the city looks pretty good...

Re: Downtown: Holdup at Marin Blvd. grocery by 2 men in ski masks
Home away from home
Home away from home


It's not that these types of crime are unique to Jersey City...It's everywhere in this nation and the economy will only increase it more so. There are, however, not many cities that have the level of police working off duty jobs as this city does and it's more of a new thing in the last decade.
There are scores of police all over Jersey City on any day of the week at construction jobs big and small. You can't miss seeing them. These jobs pay big bucks and enable the officer to double their salary or more and retire in 20 years with a big pension. They're essentially working double shifts and the majority of them have to travel many miles between here and home. So they gotta be a little tired. The politicians who run this city are in a boozefog state of mind and their hearts and minds are elsewhere. They'll show up at parades and groundbreakings, mutter inanities and run off to one of their designated watering holes. If you really want to go crazy attend a community police meeting and listen to gibberish about them winning the fight. Twenty minutes response time to an armed robbery is horrendous by any measure in any city.

It is the corner of York & Marin. It is across the street from the school where the armed robbery of a Bingo game took place about a year ago and just down the street from York & Grove where two punks robbed a woman about 6PM last month and broke a cop's hand in the process.

I spoke to the store owner who told me the robbery happened at 8:30 PM Monday night and it took the police twenty minutes to arrive. The two men had ski masks and a gun and ran away on foot toward Montgomery Street. City Hall is right there and no cops for twenty minutes. This is not the first time this hard working man has been held up and it is an outrage at the the slow response time. This type of event is happening ddaily in every sector of jersey City and the mayor boasts about the declining crime rate.
What bull. There is no leadership coming from City Hall and none from the PD. The citizens are essentially on their own.
Where are the police?
