There's your problem with policing - the psychological exam. This should have been done during the initial recruiting process and not at the end.

I would have thought being any sort of public servant, you needed to be of good character, maintain moral values (how do you work those out) and void of any felony or serious misdemeanour offences and pass the PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAM BEFORE COMMENCEMENT.

Given that, most of our politicians would be thrown out of office as they can't maintain the PUBLIC TRUST bestowed on them.

Here in Australia, I've learnt that both main political parties have thrown out (demoted / fired) their elected Prime Minister for being an ass.

Over 60 building in the UK are to be audited and tested that have the same cladding issues for community safety. City Officials and Inspectors are to test and sign off on them to confirm that they are safe.

Here in Melbourne they are doing the same ... JC should also do such an investigation in the interest of community safety ... Central Equity Limited is a global player in development and construction so I'd look at their buildings to start with ... Once independently tested, they can be given a 'green light' on materials used to keep residents and insurance co's happy.

What a disaster in the UK regarding the residential tower fire - They had a similar, but not as dramatic fire here in Melbourne and I'm betting the same 'conditions' apply in both locations.

1. Developers handing over fists of campaign money to local and State politicians to get 'favors', lacks 'inspections' and failures to respond to complaints.

2. The use of cheap-ass cladding that doesn't meet building standards.

3. Here in Melbourne, local governments are doing an audit on building materials used and multi-million dollar corrections in construction are being instituted and even property insurance companies are jumping on board

4. What is also interesting is that I've stumbled across construction companies with various names that operated in JC/NJ and here, with slightly alternative names but appear to be the same company !

5. I'm betting that the cladding supplier and/or construction company that is involved with the fire in the UK overnight did many works in NJ and NY.

6. Rumours are that insurance companies are refusing to cough up money if breaches have occurred and buildings burn down.

I hope that everyone including HOA 's, have performed due diligence on their highrise complex buildings before the developer's warranty period is over !!!!

We actually been getting a lot of manufacturing returning to the USA in large part because we have some of the cheapest energy in the world , places like China aren't that cheap anymore, and a need to reduce transit costs associated with the supply chain.

However, the assembly line, low to moderate skill jobs aren't coming back with the manufacturing. I'll link to a case in point:

Textile (yarn) manufacturer headed for China in the '90s for the cheap labor. In 2010, the US plant was re-opened. In its previous peak during the 1980s, it employed over 2,000 people. Today: about 140 workers due to automation.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/20/bus ... .html?pagewanted=all&_r=0


I often question the patriotism of US corporations and our politicians ... for me they have very little with politicians being complicit with their needs and wants ... campaign money always has a big voice on governance.

I believe crime will be drastically reduced if we simply had more blue collar jobs for the 18 - 25 year olds, and I don't mean fast food outlets or grocery stores. I'm talking about jobs in manufacturing, semi skilled employment that we now get done overseas.
We have a greater number of young adults that don't have the aptitude for education and need options that once existed that now don't ... we used to have huge manufacturing plants employing thousands to make most of our white goods (fridges / tv's / dishwashers / phones etc) and now we do nothing like that.

I'd like the governor and mayor to focus on luring manufacturing industries back into this State with tax abatements and the like (and not to developers) and I'll bet the crime rates will reduce, to a much more manageable number.

It makes no wonder local businesses are exploiting the H1B visa when you're competing with overseas suppliers or service providers. Everything from manufacturing to telemarketers that are calling us from abroad is a problem, that should be 'homegrown' industries ...

With all the complaints and comments about people running stop signs, red lights and people using phones while driving on JClist, we now have a 'heads-up' about police doing exactly what many hoped for; enforcement blitz.

It would have been better if we kept quiet and those that breach the laws be caught out, and hopefully change their ways with a hefty penalty. I'm betting it's locals that flaunt the rules more so then visitors to the area.

I sort of agree ... every taxed residential property should receive one (only) parking permit and pay through the nose for a second one or visitors permit (max. limit 2 including the free permit).

The freebie and extra parking should be limited to those that have no off-street parking available (the older homes) and not for new developments or when the regulations were in place for developers to provide off-street parking... this is inner city living and things should only improve as old homes get bulldozed and new construction with off-street parking get built.

The political and financial elite might 'talk the talk' but will never screw things up for themselves.

Why don't people that have a concern with any aspect of governance contact the department within cityhall of their concern and seek assistance from them.

I don't believe that councillors are private secretaries for every individual's request and an individual advocate of their issues.

There is a process to get things done and it would idiotic for a councillor to micromanage everyone's individual complaint.

If city hall staff screw-up, seek the manager / supervisor out, then the director and with all the relevant info in hand and you are still dissatisfied, look to councillors, noting they can't change legislation to suit your personal needs or wants!

Why complain it's the American way - We have a President (not to mention most politicians) that knows every tax avoidance loophole in all his business and building interests.

Every developer, politician, corporation or individuals that have the means will employ a lawyer or even a team of lawyers to look for loopholes and exploit poorly written legislation ... It might be legal what they do, but maybe not so ethical and unfortunately, being unethical means nothing these days as there are no consequences.

If you want to finger point, then it's Fulop, Christie and the IRS for not 'patching' up those loopholes in our building regulations and tax laws.

Interesting !
I've got a cop friend that has a MBA in criminology and he would disagree with your comment that "criminals do not care about a criminal record" ... You might be surprised that there isn't that many 'career criminals' out there, when in fact we have a high percentage of opportunistic criminals and only when caught, that reality kicks in and they soon discover how their 'opportunistic' ways catches up with them in the future.

I still believe that the root cause to crime that is motivated by money is a lack of blue collar, process factory work and manufacturing.

Look at the list of US corporation that do all their manufacturing in China and how many of them once were manufacturing in New Jersey and Jersey City.

http://www.jiesworld.com/international_corporations_in_china.htm

Trump, Christie and even Fulop need to pull their fingers out and look at ways to have more manufacturing, blue collar laboring jobs in our State and City

13 and 15 years of age at 3:00am - I'm betting they were upto no good and got an ass whipping, since the shots were directed at their ankles and at their back (escaping from doing something they shouldn't have) !

Whatever it was, shooting them was an extreme ... next-time a paint/pellet gun would have been a better option and just as painful !

It would be nice if the newspaper followed up with what they were up to in that area or will the kids remain quiet so as not to incriminate themselves ... I'm not buying any cock & bull story that they were out at 3.00am walking their dog!

Re: Stop the give away of taxpayers' city owned land. Ordinance 17-023

It would be nice if the 'give away' had a clause that somehow had a condition that it would have to benefit the community / citizens of Jersey City; either by (mandating) employing a % of locals or having some direct or indirect benefit to them (locals).
The highest price wins, often means little or no community benefit with the only benefit going to a buyer ... and then cityhall offers tax abatements!

It would be better, I feel, to direct city owned land to better QOL enterprises or enterprises / businesses that benefit the community or draws in tourists etc, instead of adding to the demand or added pressure to our infrastructure and services.

Could the land be used to build a new library, police station, city run daycare, community hub, city run aged care day centre, city offices for an expanding employee base, fire station, city / charity / community run medical clinic, local parkland, city dog run etc etc.
