You're both right, I stand corrected.

I wouldn't mind living there, but the traffic up Monmouth and across Tenth might be a bit annoying.

They were supposed to build on top of the embankment. They went as far as sinking numerous piles, but then they stopped. I don't know any more about it.

A few years back a woman was raped in a forced-entry break in on that block. As far as I know it was an isolated incident, but it got a lot of attention for happening in a nice area.

It might happen more often than this, but I remember about 20 years ago when this happened.. they dumped the carcass in the Meadowlands. Stunk for days.

No, they don't, but we're talking about the Jersey Journal here. Gotta give them some leeway when it comes to facts and figures. And names and sequence of events and charges and followups and procedure. If they report on it.

Great job, Vigilante. Chiming in based on something someone else said without backup? Own yourself, fat boy.

------------------------------------------------------------------
The Michigan Supreme Court had found sobriety roadblocks to be a violation of the Fourth Amendment. However, by a 6-3 decision in Michigan Dept. of State Police v. Sitz (1990), the United States Supreme Court found properly conducted sobriety checkpoints to be constitutional. While acknowledging that such checkpoints infringed on a constitutional right, Chief Justice Rehnquist argued the state interest in reducing drunk driving outweighed this minor infringement.

Furthermore:

Although the U.S. Supreme Court has found sobriety checkpoints to be constitutionally permissible, eleven states have found that sobriety roadblocks violate their own state constitutions or have outlawed them. [4] Opposition to sobriety roadblocks is generally stronger among civil libertarians, conservatives and libertarians. See Foss, R.D., et al. Roadside Surveys in Conjunction with Sobriety Checkpoints. North Carolina State Highway Safety Research Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC. Shaffer Library of Drug Policy.

Furthermore:

Judge Stevens, who also dissented in this case, argued that the net effect of checkpoints on traffic safety is small, and possibly negative. He also stated that even if roadblocks were effective, conducting them would not justify violating people?s constitutional rights.

Many DUI attorneys call this ruling ?the DUI exception to the Constitution.?
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry, Vigilante, you're in the minority on your fascist police state mentality. You know who also liked checkpoints?

This is exactly why the cops should have road-blocks and spot checks in problem areas. Kudos to the JCPD and to this idiot who walked right into their hands.


That would violate the 4th amendment.


Logic has no place in a conversation with Vigilante.

I don't even know what to say to that.. most ignorant comment I've read all week. Have you ever been through that neighborhood at night? There are people on bikes all over the place. I love this little fantasy world you conjure up where you know everything.

What, or rather, WHO, do you think?? Idiot. Your blog is filled with so much racial spite that it's no surprise to anyone who has looked at it that you would make such a baited comment like that. If you think DK meant that it was "those Puerto Ricans" causing trouble again, you're dead wrong. Anyone with half a brain is afraid to walk past that park at night, regardless of what race/culture the people hanging out there are. I think you need to read up on your sociology, young son.

I'm surprised that username was available.

Are there police cameras in that neighborhood? I've been noticing more of them around downtown lately, but mostly they just look like traffic cameras (see the confluence of Newark, Monmouth, and Second for example). I'm not sure if they've been there for a while or if I just hadn't noticed them. I'm usually against indiscriminate surveillance system deployments (see recent studies on the sheer ineffectiveness of cameras in the UK - 1 crime solved per 1,000 installed cameras), but who knows.

Is this a reoccurring problem in the summertime in that area, or are the problems you're talking about new? From what I understand of the neighborhood and have seen over the past five years or so, it might just be "congenital", so to speak, of the area for this to happen every now and then.

Have you looked into a combination solar / diesel generator system? If you have a powerful enough setup and you conserve electricity (like everyone should) you can actually unload your extra amperage onto the grid, enough to make your meter run backwards. You'll actually be *making* money.

It's entirely possible, but the exact amount of compensation is up to the jury, should the court find for her case. That's why tort reform has been a somewhat heated topic in the past few decades.

I think the problem is this women needs money for the kind of care she is going to need to help in her recovery, and probably for most of her life.

In all likelihood the guy driving the car, even the car owner have limited insurance policies, and minimal to actually collect on. Furthermore being in prison doesn't really help his earning potential. I wish her and her family the best of luck and what must be a truly horrifying experience.


I agree completely. Imagine what your life would be like now had you lost your ability to walk at 19 and needed years of painful therapy just to try to hope to approach a normal standard of living.

Not only will therapy and care be accounted for; actuarial rates are also given for a future "earning potential" for many individuals. The money that this poor girl would have earned in life is no longer going to be available to her family or any potential dependents in the future.

Real New Yorkers know that Jersey is just as much as part of the region as Queens or the Bronx is. The people you guys feel it so necessary to talk up your town to are the fake jokers that just moved here and think that to act like "Real New Yorkers" they have to make fun of Jersey. It's that herd mentality megalomania that made them move to the city in the first place, thinking they would immediately become Big Shit. Don't lie about where you're from, because then the rest of your life is based in that lie and you become as fake as those losers are.

Re: For Graffiti Artists in Jersey City -- Texting Replaces Tagging

You're over simplifying it. Perhaps the real world is too complicated for you.

A graffiti artist would not paint someone's windows black because that would be ridiculous. It doesn't even happen in real life; you're trying to make a point by referencing fairy tales.

On the other hand, at least some portion of the population can understand the alienation an entire block of drab steel roll gates can be. Life shouldn't imitate The Trial. Look into Espo's storefront work from the 90's for a great example of putting life back into a depressing urban streetscape. Not every landowner is a saint in this city, so stop going on about the poor, poor victims.

Stealing does not equate to graffiti. I can't stand it when people refer to it as "destruction". Nothing is being broken, nothing is being physically taken away.

Also, recent studies are showing the "broken windows" theory to be non-correlative to the decline in crime over the past few years; it was a false attribution to something that was happening anyway. Same goes for Guiliani.. he can't take credit for what turned out to a natural uptick in the urban cycle.

This is a digression, and I apologize. I don't see a problem with schools choosing not to represent specific religions, and for a good reason: it has absolutely no place in a public forum. I don't need my son coming home crying and asking why they nailed some man to a stick.

Anyway, to get back on topic, I do not have a problem with artistic nudes, though I would be suspicious of some of the people that are overly enthusiastic about it. That is all.

Christmas has reached a level of having essentially zero actual significance in our society to everyone but our corporate overlords, but to say people want to "ban" it is ludicrous. You watch too much Fox News.

I was hoping to bring a minor to a local drawing class, in fact. Perhaps the original poster has PG classes, though he did not clarify that detail in his subsequent response anyway.

By the way, not all jazz music is meant to be relaxing.
