Hi, I am new to this group

I live on Wayne street, also and the owner of the two 'drug buildings' on the corner has done nothing to clean up the street. He is a rich guy who inherited both buildings and fills them with section 8 renters, a clinic and a drug store which creates a ghetto atmosphere on what otherwise would be a nice block. The previous owner of my building tried for years to have the city and VVPA to do 'something' about the buildings and nothing was ever done.

I have been on Wayne St for nine years. I have always been polite to the people who hang out there and have never been bothered by them. I have a neighbor who walks by the group and looks at them as if they were pond scum. A little respect goes a long way. Just a nod of your head can change everything.


So if you had it your way, these section 8, drug-building-renters would be kicked out of their apartments and off your nice block. But when you're forced to come face to face with them and their brood, you put on this act like you're giving them respect?

Having it both ways sounds kinda wussy.

Your neighbor who takes issue with the dealers and has the cojones to flaunt it, sounds like he's just being straight up.

Face it. They hate you and you hate them. The sooner everyone comes to grip with this, the faster y'all can have THE ultimate breakdancing challange to see who really owns the block. Or whatever.

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 strongly disagree with the Captain's assessment of Officer Mac's participation on JCList.

When I found out about the new policy regarding posting on the list, I was deeply disappointed. I'm sure I wasn't alone. The fact that someone representing the East District was reading our safety concerns and taking the time to respond to our questions gave me a strong sense of security and confidence in the PD's dedication to the downtown community. By maintaining his presence on JCList, Officer Mac was providing us with the reassurance that could come from daily interaction with a regular neighborhood foot patrol officer.

I've been to meetings (both crimewatch and neighborhood) where the Captain and Officer Dina have been in attendance. I can tell you it's not as easy as it sounds to approach them to discuss how I feel about safety or the strange guy that moved in next door. Here on the list, I can write about that, without the stress of worrying whether I was wasting anyone's time.

So Officer Mac had an attitude. He was a 6', 270lb. Police Officer. OF course he didn't back down when someone took a shot at him or the PD. That only made him a fellow JCLister. Considering the quasi official nature of his postings, I assumed that he was speaking for himself when he was on the offensive anyway. The Captain would have been taking a risk had he continued to look the other way as a new Community Relations Officer stepped into Officer Mac's JCList shoes but it would have been a great opportunity to continue to strengthen ties with the community.

At a time when "Today in Jersey City..." is heard more often than ever during the crime reports on the evening news, enlisting policies that make it more difficult to communicate with JCPDs representatives is a terrible mistake. Officer Mac's participation on this board meant so much more to us than the sum of his informative postings it's unfortunate they failed to realize this.

I've seen this topic brought up time and time again with the Captain. He remains unmoved on this issue.

My point is that if the HPNA had announced their intention to change their bylaws - making it necessary to be a member for 90 days in order to vote - THREE MONTHS ago, the outcome of the upcoming elections would be a little less certain.

Maybe not, but I do find the timing of the complete overhauling of their bylaws extremely suspect.
