Re: New Residents..Stop Calling Police on Bars & Silencing Church Bells
#1

While we're on the subject of annoying driving habits of Jersey City residents, what's up with JC drivers who seem to be under the impression that when the light turns green, the car making a left hand turn has the right of way? It's like a game of chicken leading up to the light change between the car that wants to go straight and the car that wants to turn left. Both drivers are watching the crosswalk indicators flashing waiting for the "Don't Walk" so they can gun it the split-second before the light turns green. And god forbid, the car that wants to go straight beats the turning car to the punch (as it should be because the car going straight has the right of way), the driver of the turning car will usually lay on their horn and unleash some profanities, like they were in the right. I've never understood this phenomenon. It's so unique to JC.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I've never lived in a city where there is such constant road construction. And the streets are left in terrible condition afterwards, every time. Before I moved to JC, I had no idea cars even had something called a "sway bar", but thanks to the mogul-like quality of JC's streets, I've had to have the sway bar on my car repaired like 3 times in 8 years.

Re: Jersey City beefs up security after Iraqi PM's statement on potential subway attacks by ISIS

I saw two of the "beefed up" PA officers yesterday at Exchange Place and they looked like storm stroopers. They were just strolling around amongst the general publice with riot gear and huge assault rifles (at least I think that's what they were, I'm not a gun person). They were huge weapons that looked very out of place and alarming just out in the open like that. I'm not down there very often and hadn't heard about the threat yet, so I assumed that it was an everyday thing, which I found kind of disturbing. Glad to hear there's a (somewhat) legit reason.

Re: Dangerous traffic situation at Center/Columbus and Montgomery… and other complaints

I just called the non-emergency number to complain about this very issue. I felt like I was being forced into a suicide mission this morning when I tried to get from the Center St lane over to the turnpike loop! A gypsy cab driver almost took off my front bumper trying to get off the turnpike ramp onto Columbus. It was nuts. I mentioned this thread to the woman who answered the non-emergency number so as to illustrate that I'm not crazy, but she seemed less than impressed, so I think it would help if more people call and complain. It's 201-547-5477.

Oooh, child. I have a 6 year old daughter. I also have two large pit bulls, who are lovely 99% of the time, but believe me when I tell you that if I don't like you, they don't like you. If anyone ever touched my daughter, I think I would do my best to ensure that that person found themselves alone in a locked room with my dogs. I would gladly watch as they ripped the perv several new assholes. Hell, I'd sell tickets.

Re: What's With All the Cops?

Maybe because of my odd schedule, I don't see them in action at rush hour, but all afternoon I drive around downtown and for the most part all I see are officers leaning against their motorcyles (or whatever inanimate object happens to be nearby). Many times I have seen cars double park or park on a yellow curb or otherwise impede traffic by breaking a law and...nothing. Cops just stand there. I don't live in JC, so it's not my tax dollars going to waste, but it's sort of infuriating just from a citizen point of view.

What's With All the Cops?

What's the purpose of all the cops posted at intersections lately? The one at Columbus and Marin I understand because cars are no longer allowed to make that left onto Marin, but the rest of them don't seem to be doing much of anything. Occassionally, I do see an officer help a pedestrian cross, but for the most part they're just standing around watching infraction after infraction take place literally right in front of them. Is the theory that their mere presence will intimidate people into following the rules? If so, it's not working.

Re: Looking to Rent a Vacant Lot

Yes, which is precisely why I want a private lot to bring my pack to. I've been "conducting a business such as this" for 6 years in Jersey City. But I agree with you that most of the people bringing their dog(s) to a public dog run don't have the first clue of how to effectively control or discipline their dog. I'm looking for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that my dogs and I will be the only ones in the yard.

You will probably need more than just a lot to rent to conduct business such as that in Jersey City. Just as pet sitters are supposed to have boarding permits when they take a clients pet into their own home.There are numerous walkers now loading vehicles with dogs completely untethered, no crates, and dogs of all sizes jumping all over seats and loading them into public dog runs outside of the dogs neighborhood. Insurance or not, accidents happen. There have been quite a few at Hamilton and Van Vorst Parks due to walkers and owners not being in control of too many dogs.

Looking to Rent a Vacant Lot
#14
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I have a small pet care company that provides pack playdates to about 15 dogs per day. Lately it has become increasingly difficult to find dog runs that will allow my pack (about 6-7 dogs at a time) to run and play as needed. I comepletely understand that public dog parks are not for commercial use and private dog runs are for residents of the building only. So, as a solution, I am hoping to find a vacant lot, ideally one that is fenced in, that I could rent from the owner and use as a safe and private play yard. I would only need access to the lot from 11:00-4:00 M-F, and I am willing to clean it up if it is cluttered with debris, broken glass, etc. My company is fully insured and I would assume any and all responsibility for any damage. My packs are well behaved, I keep barking to a minimum, and I do not let them dig holes or be destructive. Mostly they just need space to wrestle and run around! Obviously, I would clean up all the poop as well . I know it's an odd request, but if you or anyone you know is sitting on a vacant lot that might fit the bill, you might as well make some money off it, right? PM me with any leads! Thank you in advance!

I hope that if you are JCPD that you do conduct yourself in a fair and impartial manner while on the job. However, based on your own comments on this thread, that's just not the vibe I'm getting from you. So far, in addition to displaying an astonishing lack of judgement and self-control (yes, let's give this person a badge and a gun?!!), you have also made callous and insensitive remarks about the homeless and you've displayed a bias towards anyone that you (incorrectly) perceive to be a transplant or an office-worker. You just are not coming across as particularly impartial and level-headed. That's all I'm saying...

You're right. There are good apples in the JCPD barrel. The officer who humored me when I dropped off those suspected dog deterrents that turned out to realtor signs, for example. He was friendly, genuine and professional. Even followed with a pleasant phone call the next day. I left the precinct thinking wow, he was actually a pleasure to deal with. I had fully expected to be mocked when I went in there. So, thank you Officer Gary Griffin!

I find it funny that both times someone has posted a negative experience with the JCPD, bradleybeachbrawl feels compelled to accuse them of lying. Talk about blowing your cover, officer.

I can only speak for myself, but I am inclined to believe the OP's story because it is consistent with nearly every interaction I have ever had with JCPD. Mind you, I have never been the "perp". On one occassion, I was the victim of a crime, on others I was simply a citizen with a simple question, and once or twice I've had the extreme displeasure of having contact with an office who was standing around earning time and a half...oops, I mean "directing traffic." In every instance except one, the officer(s) were arrogant, entitled, condescending, uninformed, and generally unhelpful.

If the JCPD wishes to change their earned reputation, they need to start by changing their attitude towards the general public and by leading by example.

Well, maybe you're right. One of them did have the stakes bent down. I assumed some other safety-conscious person had done it. Finding these, coupled with the fact that someone had described something exactly like this and warned me to watch out for the dog, it seemed like too much of a coincidence. I hope you're right!

I'm a dog owner too and I'm concerned about their safety.

No, that's not what these were. I'm familiar with what you're talking about. I walk around downtown JC all day long, it's my job, so I've seen the empty sign stands you're referring to. While I can see how these sound similar from my description, the things I found were obviously home-welded. Where the prongs were attatched was very crude and lumpy and they had been painted black. I suppose anything is possible but I consider myself to be pretty sane as well, and I'm pretty sure that these things had been put there as deterrents for dogs.

For what it's worth, the one that was at the base of a tree was not in plain sight. It had been intentionally hidden amongst some high grass. It was not a tree that had nice plantings at the base or anything either, just a bunch of crab grass and weeds.

Also worth noting: I looked for more devices, as did someone from the city and we didn't find any more.

How am I being dramatic? I didn't say a dog WOULD impale themselves, I said I suspect that was the intent of whomever placed them there.

Also, I'm glad that your dog is healthy, observant, and intelligent enough to avoid these. And you're right, most dogs could probably avoid them just fine. But there are many senior dogs and dogs born with vision impairment who may not detect them in time. Also a young puppy might be too impulsive and inexperienced to notice before it's too late. I don't know about you, but I like my dogs with BOTH eyeballs, thank you very much.

These are examples of tools used to prevent pigeons from gathering in a particular place.

In any case, give your dog some credit! He will see and detect these "impaling devices" before they can do any damage.

Dog "Booby Traps"
#28
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


This morning as I walked a dog down Jersey Ave, I noticed some metal skewers sticking out of the ground at the base of a tree near the intersection of 5th and Jersey Ave. I reached down and pulled out a device that can only be described as a home-made "booby trap" clearly designed to impale a dog as the dog bends to sniff the base of the tree. I found another one zip-tied to the base of a street sign near 6th and Jersey. The devices are about a foot and a half long, made entirely of metal, shaped like a capital "H", with 6" metal prongs or skewers welded along the top.

I removed them and delivered them to the police station, where I also filed a report.

As a side note, I was walking a dog on a dead-end street off of Magnolia, between Summit &Baldwin, about 3 weeks ago, and a neighbor warned me to be on the lookout for hidden metal skewers that "someone" had strategically placed on that street as well. I never saw any myself on that street, but it appears this may not just be an issue in Hamilton Park.
