My point with my maybes and possibles and such are because in thread after thread on this site i read people's complaints about public safety or the lack there of. I'm just saying that if we want to feel safe, and make a dent in the crime rates in this city, then paying the police well and providing good continuing training is not unreasonable.

And the police and teachers who make 90k have been doing it forever. I was making 40k managing Starbucks... the 8 friends of mine that went into teaching started around 24k a year. On top of teaching summer school and working second jobs through the summer to make ends meet, they still had to provide most classroom supplies out of pocket.

Yes there are cop that have crappy attitudes, yes there are cop that are just plain tools. There are also cops that do ti because they actually care, there are cops who are just really great people. They deal with crackheads, filthy losers, complete jerks, abused children, crazed animals, dangerous situations.... and on and on! These men and women risk their lives everyday doing things that none else would or could do. If i could be killed on the job at any time i don't think its unreasonable to get great benefits.

Seriously... how is it possible as Americans we are totally enthralled with idiots that drink and screw all day long and they get paid well for doing it on tv. A guy can bounce a ball and throw it into a basket and he get 20+ million a season. A woman can force herself to cry on cue and does it in a movie studio she get 8+ million for a few months of playing dress up. Yet when it comes to our police, fire, medics and teachers we get all uppity if they make enough to pay most of their bills. The people that keep us safe and healthy and educate our future leaders make little more than i did managing a Starbucks. I poured coffee and i made more that some if my teacher friends... they are educating your out of control brats and i make more pouring freaking coffee!!!!!

Maybe if police departments could afford to pay enough to make quality people take the job, and if we compensate them enough to risk their lives, then there would probably be way less posts on here about crime in this city. Possibly if the police felt like they had something to work for you guys would have less to bitch about. I know i wouldn't want to help the people that bad mouth me all he time. I wouldn't be inspired to put my life on the line for the douchebags that say i should get paid less and cut my benefits while your at it. So... I'll die protecting you so my kids can grow up broke and one less parent... sounds fair. I just don't get it.

Now, I see this... Yesterday around 10pm i had an emergency at home and was charged $55. There was some traffic in the tunnel, but that's the price he offered before leaving. I didn't know any better.

Any word? I saw a 60+ year old black man (he looked to be homeless) pushing a shopping cart down Roosevelt full of hanging baskets, small potted plants and larger shrubs and plants with no pots. He was trying to sell them to people on the streets. This struck me as odd and i thought of this thread. I mean roots dangling and dirt falling off... didn't look like they came that way. I reported it to the cops.

Hopefully that was your guy.

"At least with cooporate crime no one gets physically hurt whether it be a car body or a human body, it's just monitary."




Just look at the spikes in suicides in times like these. We won't know for a few more years because the cases are still being studied. Madoff has tons of blood on his hands. Loved ones lost, jobs lost, homes lost, families can't afford food, but can't get govt. assistance because they're holding on to some shares of stock, just in case.

Hey... PBW No pissing match needed. Freakin adorable avatar by the way!! I wasn't saying that the crime only follows wealth. I agree with you. I was saying, probably not very effectively, that just because highrises go up, and rents go up hoodlums aren't going to stay away. It just keeps out people like me who can't find a better job in this economy. I'd make an awesome neighbor! But one day... If you see a moving van and you hear the theme from the Jefferssons blasting out of it... you'll know its me.
I probably would have said something too, and gotten my ass whooped too.

Ha, yeah... i remember you agreeing with me in another post. I can be naive though... you were right.
But one thing i can say about my little ghetto paradise on the west side is that compared to the cute little artsy neighborhood i lived in in NC before i moved here is the i hear about 86% fewer gunshots here than i did there, and about the same ratio of home invasions. Home invasions are all the rage in Charlotte.

My dog has my back too, but what i meant was that there was a time when some guys were harrassing be and saying some nasty stuff and the local kids stopped their basket ball game and came to my defense. They had my back. And a time that young guys were hanging out near the baseball field told me that some guys that were looking for trouble were hanging out near by so two of them that live on the next block from me walked with me. They know me from walking my dog around, and one remembered me for helping his grandma when her walker got stuck in a sidewalk crack.

The over all point I was making is that just because a kid wears baggy jeans doesn't mean he's going to attack you. Just because its a poor community doesn't mean its filled with the scum of the earth. I'm just not ready to write everyone off. Its the blanket statements that kill me. Some poor people commit crimes... that must mean all poor people are evil. Thats what upsets me. I'm a bad person just because of my address.

And yes, lower income areas have higher crime rates, but there are sooooo many different kinds of crimes included in those rates. But typically the crimes that I are most likely to affect me are car theft, break-ins, rape, mugging, vandalism, robbery, etc. Those are the crimes that follow money. Seeing as how i'm not a gang member, a hooker or a drug user/dealer i'm not as worried about the crimes related to those lifestyles.

I am neither saying that normal good people don't get shot, stabbed, beaten or murdered for no reason or defending the idiots that hit this poor lady. Stuff happens! But Jersey City as a whole could be inproved greatly if the good, hard working honest people in the poor communities were given some credit. There are plenty of people in my area that piss me off all the time. There are plenty of people in my area that aren't good in any way, but some are. The elitist "make too expensive and they'll leave" idea never solved anything. I want to spend my money locally, i want to live closer to where i like to hang out, but its already too expensive.

That basketball court is an invite asking for trouble in the newly renovated Hamilton Park.




That won't help, it may actually make it worse. I've always lived in areas in the early stages of gentrification and the same thing always happens. You have mixed income areas with mostly hard working, respectable yet poor families, middle class crackers like me, and a few degenerates. The few trouble makers don't cause trouble near home because they don't want to be forced out and they heep most of the other crap out because they don't want the blame. However, when you start bringing in the upper-middle class and raise the rents, is when you bring in more crime. Nicer cars to break into, better tv's to steal, people that have things you can rob from them. Crime follows money.


In a true neighborhood, where you have all kinds of people who treat eachother with the same level of respect is where you have peace.

These kids, who i might add do need a good beating, probably were far from home.

And Vigilante, i agree with you totally! I've had friendly conversations with people i never would have expected to come up and talk to me. It all starts because of my dog. We walk through Lincoln Park some nights and all the "thugs" know us and say hi and pet him. I feel safer knowing they have my back if something happened.

Thanks for the tip. Is there a particular brand I should look for?


That stuff doesn't work anymore and if I see someone in my neighborhood trying to do harm to dogs with whatever I will cave their faces in. That is a promise that I most certainly will keep.




Right on Vigilante!!!

Ps. It isn't "bait" its a cruel means of murder! It doesn't damage the nervous system. It kills them in a very slow painful manner, with seizures, organ failure, imense amounts of pain. I've had to see it way too many times while volunteering at humane society! I've only seen 2 cases where it was caught in time, it took 3 days of an iv drip of everclear. cost the owners thousands and the animals continued to have health problems through thei shortened lives.

It recently came to my attention that our crazy neighbor who hates dogs is spreading cayenne pepper and red pepper powder on the tree trunks in front of the second building back from JP's! It's supposed to make dogs not want to pee there. Her 55 year old mentally different son told me. It has gotten in the leaves blowing down the street as it has been so dry lately. In addition to irritation to the skin on my feet from standing on my stoop with other neighbors the other night; this morning my dog scared the hell out of me!!! I guess he sniffed some leaves with it on them, we almost made it across the street before he was sneezing, twitching, coughing, he couldn't catch his breath and fell to the ground struggling to breath. Which, THANK YOU to the good samaritan who saw trying to open his airway that brought me milk and water so I could flush his eye's nose and mouth!!!! THANK YOU! He's fine now... just a little puffy! (BTW he's a bulldog so I think it was so bad because he already breathes hard) It’s bad enough that I’ve asked this nut very nicely to please put her bread crumbs for the birds and rats in the alley instead of the sidewalk because my dog is extremely allergic to wheat, to no avail.

My biggest fear in all this is for the small breeds in the area to have worse trouble because they're tiny and closer to the ground. And for all the children in the area... Kids are tree trunk height so God forbid the wind blows pepper in a baby's face, or a child trips and falls there, or worst of all a child touches the tree then rubs they're eyes, nose of mouth.

Also... If anyone can tell me what to do about the situation please do. Can I report her to someone? After all they're not her trees... not her property.

I'm just soooo glad to see that i'm not the only one baffled and angered by the garbage. To the guy who asked if you're supposed to hold your trash til you get to where you're going? UH YEAH!!!!! You bought a snack, you carried it to the light rail, you ate it, you hold your crap til you see a trash can! Thats how it works! Its not like i'm asking you to hang on to a tissue i just sneezed in.... i'm freaking asking you to hold the waste that YOU created when you CHOSE to purchase a consumable item and YOU CONSUMED IT!!!! The second you lay your money down on any product that product becomes yours... you take responsibility for it, not me, no one but you.

I live near Lincoln Park and I've never noticed any shortage of trash cans, even in the park. Its just disrespectful, lazy, irresponsible morons! I saw a guy just the other day on West Side Ave. walk past 2 trash cans while holding and empty juice bottle then he threw it on the ground right as he walked into his front door. (where in theory there is also a garbage can)

The other issue I've noticed is on trash pick-up nights the garbage men spill half the trash on the ground and leave it. As if once it hits the ground it is no longer their job. On our street there is way more trash after the trash collectors do their "jobs."

Of all the places I've lived, this is the filthiest! Even the hillbilly trailer park dwellers in SC take more pride in their homes and communities. I think they clean their property more often than they clean themselves!

I just want to make sure I have this right, because I'm new to the state...

The gov wants to enforce budget cuts in education, inner city schools are not air conditioned, teachers still haven't seen the raises that were put into place in December (mind you, teacher provide most classroom supplies out of pocket because budget already doesn't cover), there aren't enough books to go around, there are 1st graders repeating classes for the third time..... and so on and so on.... This jerk is getting a raise!?!?!?! He should have been sitting with the teachers and students in the hot un-airconditioned summer school classes this week!

Not that I advocate violence in any way... but this is the most ridiculous bunch of whining i have ever heard!!!!!!!! I am actually appalled at some of the racist, pretentious, snobby, douche-baggy things being said here! I am a young white educated professional and I happen to live 2 1/2 blocks from where the attacker lives. What do you propose? That I need to carry my degrees with me everywhere so I can prove to you that I belong in your bar. Do I need to show my stock portfolio to the bouncer before he'll let me in. If its exclusivity that you're looking for, then move to a city where there is no lowlife population... and best of luck to you! Maybe you could try Utah, predominately white, super republican... sounds like a perfect fit! Or maybe invent a time machine so you can go back in time to the 40's and 50's where at least you can sleep well at night knowing that the water fountain you drink from, or the public restroom you used has only been touched by other whites. Oh wait, that won't work, its probably been ruined by some uneducated blue collar white person.

I agree with JCSHEP, having been a bartender in a music venue for years I can honestly say that of all the different types of shows we had, the most fights and random stupidity happened when we had crowds of young uptight money hungry "well educated" "professional" crowds. You know the ones, they look down their noses at everyone, the ex-frat/sorority members that can't let go of those days. The weekend warriors who through the week life an exclusive "I'm so much better than you" life, but on the weekends pound jager bombs until they puke then take a few more. The ones who still think it looks cool to drive drunk. The men who wear $200 cargo pants and $60 white t-shirts, and the women who chase their fortunes.


Whew! that was a good Rant! All kidding aside, I do truly hope that the young lady recovered and is well. I also hope the loony toon that thought the best option was to smash someone's head in got what she deserved. I just didn't expect to hear this kind of closed minded thinking outside of the bible belt. It just breaks my heart a little that in this day and age we haven't seemed to learn that morons exist everywhere regardless of shapes, sizes, ethnicities, socioeconomic status and institutional education level. Its unfair to spread blame on whole classification of people just because of 1 fool.

Re: dog friendly bars + restaurants in jc

I'm reminded of hanging out at the beer garden a few nights ago and the two families sitting next to us had 5 young children between them ranging from infant to 5 or 6 years old. While the parents were getting hammered the walking age children were running around the patio and inside, screaming their bratty heads off, climbing on other people's tables, stealing food off strangers' plates, eating food off the ground... never once did any of the parent so much as stand up to see where the kids were or utter the words "no" or "stop"

A) Its seems like WAY more of a liability to have kids running around unattended where other adults are drinking as well, kid falls and gets hurt = lawsuit, patron steps on kid, kid gets hurt = lawsuit, patron trips over kid and gets hurt = lawsuit, patron trips over kid while holding hot food, patron gets hurt and kid gets burned and hurt = everyone is screwed.
Yet, because of idiot parents that think its everyone's job to watch their little angels but theirs, waiters, restaurant managers and/or retail workers can't say anything to these jerk parents about their out of control kids due to idiot parent groups and lawsuits.

B) If i had my 75 lb bulldog at the beer garden he would be on the leash attached to me, he would be laying either under the table or by my feet... well out of everyone's way. not barking, not eating from the table, not shedding.


I moved here from Charlotte, NC last year. As far as housing goes Charlotte is not very dog friendly... yet there were several bars and restaurants that allowed dogs on patios under basically the same rules as a dog park... if your dog is a spaz, aggressive or loud they're not welcome. There was also this wonderful little spot called the Dog Bar, a small fenced in off leash bar where well behaved dogs and dog lovers could socialize without having to deal with all the hate from cat people and dogaphobics.
