ah, see, that was your first mistake.

i appreciate hearing your point of view and commend you for standing behind your work and making your point of view known.

you could have lined the streets with gold coins and installed a real live cop, a flowery rose bush, and a diet coke machine dispensing free 20 oz bottles on each corner and people would still complain about it around here. it's what we do. it's chronic and it's a shame.

keep your sense of humor!

I am willing to accept that Jack Shaw, in poor health and facing a devastating end to his career, could have died for various reasons, over medication, intentional suicide, etc. But the circumstances demand a full, IMPARTIAL investigation.

I don't know if I agree with that. Are his friends and family asking for that? They may already have closure.

It's tricky. He was a private citizen -- with some super shady associates, for sure, but he deserves whatever dignity that can be maintained in his death. Does the public have a right to know intimate details? I dunno.

This whole thing reads like a surreal movie script.

I don't mind if people poke at me for "bragging." Really it was just a matter of me being there to see it, and the guy not having any sense of urgency. I am a male, but for the most part I tried to keep a safe distance. The police responded probably withing 3-4 minutes. The first dispatcher actually got off the phone with me even though I asked to stay on until the police came. After like 2-3 minutes I got nervous and called back. The 2nd dispatcher stayed on the phone with me and that's how they tracked him on the bus. I relayed the plates to the dispatcher. I would have liked the police to have arrived more quickly because he ended up approaching me, but overall they did a great job, and were very frienddly. More than anything I thought it was exciting, and kind of funny. That's why I shared it. I also heard from the police that there were a string of car break-ins in that area and hopefully that was the guy.


1. You are super brave. And clearly calm under pressure.

2. I am glad the cops were friendly. They should have been, since you basically did most of the work.

3. The scariest part of the story to me is that you were out there fighting crime all barefoot. Gross.

4. GOOD JOB!!!!!!!!

We are playing right into their hand. They are winning! They are ridiculous and offensive and downright insane but they want us to talk about them and get mad at them and put them in our line of fire (figurative, of course).

By protesting in front of an urban high school with a track record of violence, they are just increasing the likelihood that they will somehow be victimized, by teenagers, no less.

It's a publicity coup. And that's their whole point.

Gross gross gross. Gross. Double gross. Yet legal, for now at least.

If schools were privatized, they wouldn't be able to protest there. Just sayin.


Yes, and if the streets were paved with gold...sigh.

But it does make me wonder if there is not a law on the books that prohibits protests within a certain distance from a public school. And/or there is bound to be a sexual predator in the group who isn't allowed to be there. Just a guess.

Sheesh. Different strokes for different folks. Maybe they like living there? Brand new unit, cool views. And it's hardly the middle of nowhere. There is a huge shopping plaza nearby, with movie theater, restaurants, a great supermarket, and not too far from Broadway in Bayonne.

It's interesting that when people make different choices based on their own priorities, it's consider stupid. Just because they don't want to live the way you would.

Everyone's gotta live somewhere and if they're happy, good for them.

I think that's exactly the challenge. How do you work within the existing system yet still try to change it. It's politics. It's relationships and favors and "respect" and playing the game.

Anyone who can leverage the good and bad of a relationship (like one with Healy) to impact change has the potential to get us out of this mess.

And anyone who continually dismisses Healy out of hand is simply contributing to the problem. He is still the mayor and it doesn't look like that is going to change in the immediate future.

Play the game.

Re: Arrests of Jersey City/Hoboken Police in Cocaine Sting @ Calle Luna/Hernandez Restaurant -356 Va

He is a cop who bought drugs. Does that not make him corrupt?

I'm not being fresh -- or judgy even -- I am just trying to see how it's anything but a sign of corrupt behavior.

And most importantly, I'm not saying he's not an awesome person under all that and one who deserves a chance at redemption. He just needs to go to be punished for his crime first.

We cannot assign harsh standards to arbitrary shady drug dealers on Wayne Street and then change the standards when it's a cop...or a boxer...or someone we know...or someone we think only did it once... Life's not that easy.

BTW, I come from a family of firemen with a cop or two thrown in for good measure. The difference is that they are neither cokeheads nor corrupt.

There is not enough money in the world for me to stand in front of Jersey City traffic herding kids across the street in all kinds of weather, even if I would get to wear cute white gloves and blow a whistle.

The problem here is actually not what the crossing guard gets paid, it's what the cop gets paid. Shameful.

My last comment on this: I used quotes for event because i think it's a ridiculously staid word to use for what happened, and it was the word chosen by the poster before me. No larger intention than that.

Icechute, clearly you and I have a different reaction to what we see/hear/read around us. So be it.

I saw the large group, (at least 15 of them) many holding lengths of wood and rocks running North on Varick. Almost all wearing Ferris unis. They turned up Wayne and went toward Jersey. I called it in immediately and turned on my scanner to hear that the cops were already on it and that multiple calls had come in. That's how I heard about the assault on Jersey & Montgomery. A bunch of them heard or saw the cops and then ran West on Wayne, through Dixon and towards Monmouth where they split off in 3 directions. I also heard on the scanner that they picked-up and took at least 4 to juvenile.


Seriously Jenny, you don't seem to want to believe anything bad happens here unless it's within 6 feet of you.


Ha. Hardly. You know nothing about me except for some bullshitty things I post on a community message board. You have no idea. In all your "crime's down healy said so" ranting, have you and I ever engaged in a discussion about the total shitiness of the city we share? I think not.

Seriously, Icechute, STFU.

I simply stated the obvious. If it hits too close to home for you, perhaps because you jumped to the conclusion that I didn't believe you, then that's a shame. I've seen enough wacky stuff go on around here and since this is literally down the street from where I live, I wanted more details.

And now I have them.

And as for the inevitable hysteria I feared? Bring it. Totally justified, now that we have eyewitnesses.

Well I just saw the "alleged" event with my own eyes. Pack of kids running down Wayne St. Cops & undercover cars all over the place... so it's not an "alleged" event. Just because the Jersey Journal doesn't report it, doesn't mean it never happened.


This is the first time anyone (and now two) have said they have seen anything. So now we know.

I never said it didn't happen, by the way. So relax with that.
