I don't think you are a defender of The Beacon as evidenced by your past posts, BUT you learned from reading that obviously the auctions must have been successful for the other buildings to follow suit. It is NOT the buildings but our economy that is driving this stuff. We are all in the soup, but some of us are swimming in it NOT drowning.

He probably just wanted to take his money back but was too tied up to do so. This way he thought the police would do it for him. He watched too many BAD video games like grand theft auto. retard.

Can you name a building where criminal activity HAS NOT occurred? You are assuming it is all low income stuff again. Most cocaine dealers in the US are WHITE MALES between the ages of 18-45.

Oh puhleeeeze. None of you have the slightest idea how hard it is to get a job. Especially when you don't have a degree, ( no matter what giant experience you have) if you are over 45 (YES that makes a BIG difference, ESPECIALLY if you are female) and let's not forget if you have any type of record or a bad credit history. If you are a 20 year old virgin college graduate you have a shot.

Well put. Our government helped us into this mess. I know Obama has a lot to do and can't catch up in the first four years but he really needs to focus on our economy.

Ah, sounds like someone made a deal for a reduced sentence by turning in others. Also the reason politicians outside of our county care is that they see this as a way to sieze power for thier party/candidate.

He doesn't even have ignorance as an excuse being an election lawyer and all. Jeez. AND this kinda has something to do with Jersey City since it was done under the same FBI sting and our mayor is under a cloud of suspicion. I moved here from Secaucus and THAT mayor was stung too.

My insurance company knows I moved from Secaucus to Jersey City and they didn't have a problem leaving my fee alone. I don't know why my HOI is less I lived in a gated community before I moved here too. Just got lucky I guess.

heights- I was living in a VERY isolated community in Secaucus and do not drive so I looked for a more open place. And the art deco and community here, The Beacon, appealed to me. For the record, I do NOT condone corruption, and it is ironic that the mayor of Secaucus was caught up in this too.

sjcarolan- yep. But I WAS seriously thinking about leaving the country when GWB was re-elected. I decided that even my small voice was necessary for change in the US and stayed.

I am new to JC (2 years) and I think it's pretty good. All of these folk, innocent and guilty, had to be good for something.

Okay I thought we were going to start a separate thread for religion but really wibbit if you're a Buddhist.......never mind. I'll try to tell the truth with compassion.

This from Narada Thera
is Buddhism a religion?
It is neither a religion in the sense in which that word is commonly understood, for it is not "a system of faith and worship owing any allegiance to a supernatural being."
An understanding Buddhist gains inspiration from his noble personality and breathes deep his boundless compassion. He tries to follow the Buddha's noble example.

Well thanks, but I consider the sources. They hide behind fictitious names. Not only do you all know my name but where I live. If I let little things like them bother me I would post anonymously. They also conveniently forget I worked in prisons and still consult in prisons all over the world. My ex-husband and father of my children is a muslim from Turkey and we named our children after stories in the Koran, which I've actually read. But hey, what do I know?

I didn't bring up religion. NEWHEIGHTS post was trying to correlate Shakurs behavior to some sort of brainwashing Islamic education while incarcerated and alluded that MANY were made violent. He had no facts to back it up. Now he included a link to mininova which if you read it says only that some islamic terrorists have been arrested and jailed NOT that thier views are being admired by other prisoners.

My view is that ALL religions are violent, currently and historically. And before anyone brings up Buddhism that is a philosophy, they do NOT worship Buddha they try to emulate him. Oh and please if you want to respond to the religion stuff we should start a new thread.

I know I am cynical about politics/politicians but I believe this happens everywhere. It is too bad because Jersey City and Secaucus were following Hoboken with revitalization and good real estate values (considering the market nationally). Hey, maybe the NYC real estate folk started rumors to get an investigation

The police were totally justified. Wasn't trying to exonerate her, just responding to the conjecture in the article and the thread about how and why she could have changed so much in two years. I have said all I need to say on this.

Your statement is bogus. Not only are the developers working on the next phase of The Beacon, The Lofts at The Mercury, they also won the bid to develop the commercial/retail space of Montgomery Gardens, partnering with an experienced mixed income developer who will lead on the residential building.

First, I think I could have communicated more clearly BUT please don't act like you didn't read where I was sympathizing with the officers. As to Amanda, she didn't shoot anyone. Certainly doesn't make her a saint or exonerate her behavior, but this thread and article were about her having changed in a few short years. So that's why I posted my feelings about that. But I wasn't inside her head and neither were any of you, so we could all be wrong-- hell maybe she had a brain tumor--who knows?

New Heights-- When I post anything not based on conjecture like this thread and article are, I back it up with statistics, as your comment about prisoners was NOT. You say you've had enough of my feel good posts--TOUGH. And it's your perogative to stay miserable.

saabconv-- You don't even know me so calling me a sick individual is nonsensical. And anyone who is as rude as you are must have plenty of thier own issues.

There are so many of these stories -- women and men can become co-dependent, which is like being addicted to a person. I think we all go through a phase. I remember waiting by the phone for someone to call and checking for a dial tone when the call was late. Buying him sneakers and walking through a rainstorm to deliver them. I am so glad I grew out of that and glad that HE wasn't dangerous because I believe I may have followed him. This reminds me too, of women who get arrested because their guy is dealing and the woman gets 25 years because she has no information to trade. The guy gets out in 2 - 5 - 7. What a tragedy Amanda didn't have a few more years to mature.

I may have missed it so please don't jump on me if I did, one person just placed in Garden of Eden and that was it. I know it is in Hoboken not JC but it is a short drive and definitely worth it. Great fresh food! And the cheese section has actual cheese experts. They can tell you which foods, wines and fruits to serve which cheese with and give you a taste of each cheese if you have a couple of hours. I love it...but please don't forget the farmers market for stuff during the season. i could bury my face in the tomatos and omg the okra! And sunflowers and.......

Re: More Gunplay: Suspected crooks open fire at JC cops -- July 21st

Home away from home


Not to take away from the dangers that cops face or this particular incident but I believe we could make these less frequent. If they built shelters and programs instead of prisons it would be cheaper and more effective (statistics support up to 18 times more effective).

Yes, it is really bad getting sent to Rikers Island for being homeless or prostituting or using drugs. The streets are safer (you can run away from the bad guys or fight back) and the food is infinitely better. But there is no common sense and the corrections and police unions fight that because they don't want to change thier job description to chasing after armed and dangerous folk.

I also remember a scandal where NYC was giving homeless folk ONE WAY tickets to Florida! Now it's just one way tickets to Rikers Island.

He (Giuliani) didn't clean up NYC just the Times Square area. Those folk were basically harmless addicts, homeless and hookers, and they moved not so far away.

Vigilante you said most criminals are not artists, check these out: prisonartsfoundation.com and prisonsfoundation.org and prisonartgallery.com there are many more.

Your comment that there are "just mutants breeding and making more mutants" is inaccurate. Many successful folk come from underprivileged and even abusive backgrounds. And many privileged folk turn out to be dangerous. That is why vigilantism is not the answer. We can't tell who's gonna make it. I was written off, but here I am, a nice lady and good neighbor from whom you have nothing to fear. I even lend out cups of sugar and bake cookies for my neighbors!
