Re: An Open Letter to You, My PATH Nemesis

The platform is empty, at least where I'm standing. You see me, you know I was there before you, you also know that I'm standing right about where the door opens. So tell me why when the train pulls in, you must dodge in front of me and get the last seat on the train?

Just for that, I'm going to stand right in front of you and stare at you the entire time.

Oh, and if I'm sitting in the seat closest to the door, please don't turn and put your butt cheeks through the bars so that it's in my face. I won't ask again.

Therein lies the problem. Were family members really the right group to pick a design from 320 entries? I'm sorry, but most people don't have good taste, not to mention family members of those who died weren't thinking about how a monument would blend into the surrounding area. And, it's not their job to do so!

wow. gang activity. i guess the close surrounding areas are a host for bad things?... i thought hamilton park looked so safe. :(

oh boy. so, let me ask this question... as a local... which area would is the 'best' in jc? i know, i know.. very general, but i need to figure out what areas to avoid. i am reading that paulus hook is nice? and everyone wants to get into pad? is hamilton park included in "newport" area?

does anyone have any input about schroeder lofts in particular and what details about the st.francis hospital site changing to condos?? will it make hamilton park much more desireable?

i know... so many questions. but, i thank you in advance for your help. and hopefully, i can live there and become a local, too!


I have not noticed gang activity in Hamilton Park. I have lived in Hamilton Park for 7 years and one block away in Harsimus Cove for a year. I felt safe in Hamilton Park. I think Paulus Hook has nice brownstones but is much more deserted at night.

Filipino terrorists gearing up for campaign
By Connie Levett Herald Correspondent in Bangkok
June 18, 2005

A radical organisation of Christian converts to Islam with close links to the Abu Sayyaf terrorist group has emerged in the Philippines, raising fears of a new cycle of terrorist attacks, possibly suicide bombings.

The most senior Philippine security official sounded the alert as the Government set up a taskforce to investigate intelligence that Jemaah Islamiah and Abu Sayyaf are recruiting suicide bombers in the country's south.

The new intelligence suggests the two terrorist groups are also recruiting disaffected members of another group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which is involved in peace negotiations with the national government.

"Abu Sayyaf has succeeded in networking itself with Jemaah Islamiah and even al-Qaeda," said Norberto Gonzales, national security adviser to President Gloria Arroyo. "Rajah Sulaiman group is an organisation of Christian converts that has established links to Abu Sayyaf [and] its operation is under the control of Abu Sayyaf."

Suicide bombings had been used by Jemaah Islamiah but were rare for Filipino terrorist groups, he said. "In the case of the converts, we are looking at this seriously. Martyrdom is very strong in the Catholic faith," he said, speaking of potential suicide bomber recruits. Abu Sayyaf appeared focused on the cleansing of infidels, and there "will be new attempts at conversion".

The Rajas Sulaiman Group claimed responsibility for bombing the SuperFerry 14 in Manila Harbour on February 26 last year, killing more than 100 people. The group member Redondo Cain Delloso is in jail awaiting trial for the bombing.

Mr Gonzales told the Herald the role of Filipino terrorists had historically been to provide training venues, not to export terrorists. But recent intelligence on marine terrorism from those in custody suggests this may be changing. It claims Jemaah Islamiah and Abu Sayyaf members are being trained in scuba diving in preparation for attacks on ships.

Mr Gonzales said fewer than 10 people were understood to be involved in the plot. "So far, all the operations we have uncovered were done by very small cells.

"In the past we always thought bombings were connected to some of the things we did domestically, but we are now looking at an international extension, at a new global phenomenon."


?? So are you posting this to say that the JCPD 1)racially profiled Alan Alda (ok, it's hard to type that and not laugh) and 2) were right to do so given the situation?

In 2006 we shouldn't be talking about this; it should just be.

I'll admit that some boards seem primarily populated by lunatics (getnj.com and nj.com)...but this one is well-moderated and reasonably civil. I try to check in at least every few days because thee's always stuff I learn. JCPD might do likewise and it might find that this is a useful channel for disseminating information. Pity that such ideas seem too 21st century for the JCPD brass.


I wonder if it's because of the technology or because they cannot control the negative/troll responses on a message board. Citizens can't disprespect a PO in real life without fear of getting arrested but online, someone can disrespect an officer without repercussions.

Officer Dana O'Reilly who refuses to use this venue for communicating with the community.


Not true, jc_insomniac. This incorrect info was posted early on and I replied to that misinformation from the first Downtown Watch that PO Reilly and her boss, Captain McDonough attended together last early fall of 2005.

As I said then, Captain McDonough informed everyone at that mtg. that PO Reilly works for him, she has lots of work to do for him and he has specifically informed her NOT to post here.

He also said that Officer Mac's post were neither official or sanctioned by his office,and as much as we all found them informative sometimes things got out of hand so new day.

The reasons apart from PO Reilly's workload are that as great a job as Officer Mac did, there was a tendency of this board to want to swap trashtalk, tete a tete which is non-productive and a no win task for any PO. I agree, as witness the most recent Downtown Watch mtg. You want to complain is fine, but meet them face to face and complain to their face not behind their back

I think it fair to call the PD, McDonough, Fulop, Troy or others to task face to face or question their data before them, etc, as I did in person Monday night. It is not fair to hide behind avatars of various cartoon figures and do it anonymously, as I think you might agree.

Captain McDonough made it clear that both check this board regularly for info but they aren't going to get into a pi$$ing contest with JCListers.

If you, or anyone have something to say in person than show up at any of the varied meetings they attend monthly and ask them straight up. Or email them directly below. They deserve our support as well as our criticism IMHO.

Re: Contact info for Community Services Officer Reilly

The Captain also stated that since both he and Officer Reilly, the new Community Services Officer, both attend many neighborhood and Watch group meetings, that it was more appropriate for everyone, including JCList posters, to contact them either directly or meet with them personally at these meetings.

Here is the contact info for both:

Captain McDonough and Officer Reilly:
Phone: (201) 547-5470
Email: jcpdeastdistrict@yahoo.com

I can vouch for how quickly they returned my query by email as I just heard from Officer Reilly before I posted this info today from email I sent yesterday





It saddens me that there's no longer a police officer posting on this board. It was amazing interacting with Officer Mac on this board and recieving true information instead of rumors and knowing that our concerns were being heard. To me, it was the BEST thing about this board.

The fact that some JClisters want to get into a pissing match shouldn't prevent the positive interaction that can occur between a police officer and members of the community. Councilman Fulop posts here all the time and from what I've seen, does not engage in a pissing match with those here that antagonize him. My respect for him and his office has increased due to his interactions and follow through.

This board is an incredible opportunity for the police department to engage with the citizens they protect and serve. It's an opportunity to interact with the community in a different way than how most people interact with their local police officers, if they interact with them at all.

It's also an opportunity to build a relationship with the community. I've always respected the job police officers do, but interacting with Officer Mac increased my respect for the JCPD because I felt we were being heard because Officer Mac had a relationship with us here.

They are not required to get into a pissing match here on JClist. They can choose to ignore those who have nothing to contribute.

The internet is a now a part of how people communicate. It is now a part of how officials communicate with the public. To ignore this medium and choose to communicate with the public only in meetings is shutting out a lot of people.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? Oh, so we should learn self-defense to deal with thugs? How about hiring more police officers and patroling and getting them off the streets?

How about in reaction to the attack, WARFA put pressure on our city leaders to increase police presence in and around JC?

for those of you so against pit bulls, I suggest that you watch the "Dog Whisperer" on the National Geographic Channel and see what Ceasar Milan does.

Pit bulls are not "killer" dogs. There are dog owners that irresponsibly train the dog in negative ways to constantly get an attack response out of the dog for the purpose of fighting. If the dog were trained and reinforced in positive ways, this response wouldn't occur. If people would be responsible, keeping their animals on leashes and keeping them in a calm, submissive state, attacks wouldn't occur.

Dogs are social and hierarchical animals where there's a pack leader (which should be the human when interacting with us) and followers. There's a lot that we humans can do to keep dogs in a calm, submissive state. It is up to the humans to rehabilitate the dog and it's up to the humans to reinforce a submissive state. Killing a pit bull because *maybe* he'll attack someone isn't the answer.
