I just love these people that wait until it's dark to take the dog out for a walk. They walk up and down the street by the embankment all the time and as soon as the dog poops they hurry away. Well it's dark and no one sees you? So why pick it up? Some of these dogs weigh more than I do and in the morning I see what is left behind. Some people think it is gross to pick it up - it's worse if you leave it there!


And how is it that those people NEVER seem to step in a load?

today morning.. i almost stepped on another one again.. this time on curb near christopher columbus.. near the entrance of the chase bank
why do people keep dogs when they cannot cleanup?


Unlikely to be any "pit-bull punks" at either of those locations.

The 'entitled people' strike again.

I also love when people walk their dog and:

1. Think because it's a small dog, the crap is less offensive.

2. Walk the dog and then stand there feigning stupefied embarrassment when the dog craps and they don't have a bag on them to pick it up. It's as if the dog crapping while on a walk was a totally unexpected event for which they pretend to be totally unprepared for.

And in the latest design screw-up in the cluster**** that is Columbus Drive, last week they installed the decorative lampposts.

I counted the number of lamp posts installed on three blocks:

From Monmouth to Varick: 1

From Varick to Jersey: 2

From Jersey to Barrow: 2

That's right, 3 long blocks and only 5 of the new lamp posts.

Another half-assed effort on a half-assed project.

Service is slower than is necessary.

Apparently all is not perfect in this utopia of the young and single, however, as public disputes over beer, women or both are not uncommon.

The food is generally sub par...

Vega Timeline from the JJ:


July 23, 2009: Jersey City Council President Mariano Vega is arrested along with 43 others in a massive political corruption and international money laundering sting. Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy says he doesn't have the power to remove Vega from office.

Re: NJ Transit redevelopment project for south Hoboken moving forward

nteresting to see that Mayor Zimmer is assuming this is all about Hoboken when a majority of the redevelopment falls in JC, where's our fearless leader Mayor Healy?


From the RFQ:

Quote:
NJTransit seeks to undertake the redevelopment of the Hoboken Terminal and Yard Redevelopment Area pursuant to the Transportation Act in order to maximize the economic potential of the Hoboken Terminal Redevelopment Area, increase revenue and ridership and promote mixed-use development in accordance with the principals of transit-oriented development. In furtherance of such, on October 27, 2005, NJTransit entered into a Master Development Agreement with LCOR Hoboken Rail Station Redevelopment, LLC (?LCOR?), for the purpose of undertaking the non-transit related development of the Hoboken Terminal and Yard Redevelopment Area. The area of interest includes 52 acres of land within the City of Hoboken, including Block 229, Lots 1 and 2, and Block 139, Lots 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2, 3 and 4 on the tax map of the City


Read the last line. That area is wholly within the Hoboken borders. Not passing judgement on the project, but it's not in Jersey City.

Re: Mariano Vega pleads guilty

It is done:

Latest JJ article:

Quote:
Former Jersey City Councilman Mariano Vega pleaded guilty this morning to accepting bribes.

Vega, who resigned from City Council yesterday, appeared before U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares and admitted to accepting bribes from Solomon Dwek, a real estate developer turned government informant. Vega admitted that he took the money in exchange for helping Dwek secure approvals for a purported development on Garfield Avenue.

Vega, 60, admitted to accepting $20,000 in bribes and agreeing to accept another $10,000 in July 2009 from Dwek.

When Linares asked him how he pleaded this morning, Vega responded, "Guilty, your honor." In pleading guilty Vega agreed to forfeit the $20,000 he accepted from Dwek.

Vega faces 30 to 37 months when he is set sentenced Jan.7. Had he not pleaded guilty today, his case would have headed to trial Oct. 12. Following his arrest in July 2009, the county suspended him from his $128,244-a-year-job as director of the Department of Parks, Engineering and Planning. During the court proceeding, Linares said that the U.S. Attorney's Office sent Vega a letter detailing the plea agreement May 26. Afterward, Vega's attorney, Peter Willis of Jersey City, confirmed the May date, saying that was when talks began. "It's not a happy day for Mariano or the people of Jersey City,'' Willis told reporters after the hearing. "I was hopeful that we could litigate this case but in the end I had to do what was best for Mariano and his family.'' Vega was noticeably shaken when leaving the courtroom and declined to comment.

Ok - let me summarise the wiki for Sinik, CC and icechute who don't seem to be able to read nor comprehend. The percentages of crime show little relative differences between races on commiting crimes. But guess who gets arrested the most? And Sinik, 2008 is 2 years ago, not 20. If you guys have something useful to say other than your stereotypical opinions, please back it up with some facts.

Quote:

summary from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States

Murder and non-negligible homicide
African Americans were arrested more than any other race for murder in 2008, making up 36% of all arrests. African Americans, constituting approximately 12% of the general population, were significantly overrepresented in the total arrests made. African Americans were also significantly overrepresented in victimization, representing 47% of all murder victims. White Americans and individuals of Other race were significantly underrepresented in cases of murder and non-negligible homicide in 2008.

Non-lethal violent crime
White Americans were arrested more than any other race for non-lethal violent crimes in 2008, making up 58% of all arrests. White Americans, constituting approximately 79% of the total population, were significantly underrepresented in the total arrests made. Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans, constituting approximately 4% of the total population, were also significantly underrepresented, making up only 1% of total arrests. African Americans were significantly overrepresented for non-lethal violent crimes in 2008, making up 39% of all arrests,

Property crime
White Americans were significantly underrepresented in all property crimes, as were Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans. African Americans were significantly overrepresented in all forms of property crime, making up 30% of all arrests.


I can read and comprehend. Sometimes even at the same time. Thank you.

What I come away with from your little textbook excerpt is that if I'm a victim of a crime committed by a white person, the percentages say I can, more than likely, ultimately go on with my life and that if I'm a victim of a crime committed by a black person, I, more than likely will end up in a cemetery.

Have I got that right?
