They have a parking permit for that out of state plates piece of crap they're driving around in?

Also, I spoke with a friend who was walking down Newark Ave when these 2 were out there. The 6 cops surrounding them were pushing and telling people they weren't allowed on the same side of the street.

You can usually get a deal that involves a larger fine and reduction of points. For example, a 4 point ticket would be reduced to 2 but the fine goes up by at least $200 dollars.
In the past, I actually used a lawyer and he was able to reduce it to zero points and a $500 fine.

All stolen cars found in Newark end up at Dente Brothers, but you need a release in order for them to give you any info on it (if it's even there)
http://tinyurl.com/4f7z7ho

But first, JCPD will get a call from Newark PD. You could try calling NPD first to see if it's been recovered.
I would try Records and Communications Bureau
(973) 733-6057

I had to pick up a car at Dente and a guy I was talking to mentioned his car was stolen out of Irvington but never received a call from Irvington Police after it was found in Newark. His car sat at Dente for over 2 months before he knew and just ended up signing the car over to them since he couldn't pay all the storage and tow fees.

More like:

3. Other posters chime in reminding original poster that it IS Jersey City and crime isn't selective to only the poor neighborhoods.

4. Someone posted about another crime that happened in Downtown, suggesting again that crime is everywhere.

5. If seeing people arrested is scary, then that person really needs to move out of Hudson County. Maybe they should try the northern part of Bergen County.

Crime doesn't stop because the hood changes from Greenville, Downtown, Paulus, Hook, The Heights, etc...

Is this hunt based on fact or a small amount of gun-toting voters and state employees just wanting to get their trophies?

Former DEP Commish Questions Science of NJ Bear Hunt

Even as the latest count shows 426 bears killed in New Jersey's first bear hunt in five years, former Department of Environmental Protection(DEP) Commissioner Mark Mauriello told NBCNewYork in an exclusive interview that he has serious questions about the science that led to this hunt.....

.....Muriello had doubts about whether the rise in bear complaint statistics to justify the hunt is based in reality.

The DEP's Fish and Wildlife Division said complaints have risen sharply and that this week's hunt will "stabilize" the bear population.

"I always questioned how we could verify to be sure the calls were real," Muriello said in describing his discomfort in using phone calls as scientific evidence.

Not sure about Hoboken, but I do know of the Courts in Harrison, it's a few minute walk north of the Harrison Path station. I think the weekend mornings (8am) are pick up games. It may be worth the ride over to check it out.

I go to the airport, but there EVERYONE is checked which is the airlines' policy. It's the random checks that I don't agree with. Many time I've seen the cops poking around in the purses of good looking women only. If the PATH changed the policy to EVERYONE gets searched, then I'll oblige in order to ride the train.
And now with the shoe and underwear bombers, why are only bags searched? I guess till someone tries to set off a shoe explosive on the train, we will only be subjected to random bag searches. It's a flawed policy as I was able to ride the train that day after refusing to the search.

Again,
How many times have the bag searches caught a terrorist?

The Underwear Bomber did not check luggage which should have really tipped off security for extra screening if they were following post 9/11 procedures (Remember that you said earlier you would 'absolutely' like to go back to pre-9/11 levels of security.

In the case of the Shoe Bomber he did, just as you said, return the next day after he was initially turned away by security to try to fly again the next day. The extra day is thought to be why the explosives did not detonate.


Here's an eyewitness account from a man who was on the flight with the underwear bomber. Who was the man in the suit? Why was this guy allowed to go around security? Why was he allowed on without a passport?


http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/ind ... _passenger_kurt_hask.html

" For the last five days I have been reporting my story of the so called "sharp dressed man." For those of you who haven't read my account, it involves a sharp dressed "Indian man" attempting to talk a ticket agent into letting a supposed "Sudanese refugee" (The terrorist) onto flight 253 without a passport. I have never had any idea how it played out except to note that the so called "Sudanese reefugee" later boarded my flight and attempted to blow it up and kill me....... The importance of my story was and always will be, the attempt with an accomplice (apparently succesful) of a terrorist with all sorts of prior terrorist warning signs to skirt the normal passport boarding procedures in Amsterdam. By the way, Amsterdam security did come out the other day and admit that the terrorist did not have to "Go through normal passport checking procedures"."

It's better with some search then no search at all. What about the safety of all the employees on the train system ? You are a guest on their train when you are a guest in someone's home you should abide by their rules, similar to a dress code at an establishment. Even when you "pay" a cover charge you get searched before entering and leave when told to or at closing which ever comes first. It's better with some search then no search at all.


then the policy should be to search everyone and not at random, like at an airport.

A guest?
I can't say I've ever been searched or paid a fee when I was a guest in someone's home. That was a big stretch in trying to make the comparison there.

Re: How much notice must I legally give to leave me apartment?
#20
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Here's my situation that I need some advice on.
I'm on a month to month lease, original lease ended 2 years ago and never signed a new one. 2 weeks after I moved in (been here 3 years) the landlord had the chimney relined because it was clogged and the furnace was exhausting into the basement. I found this out when I went downstairs and couldn't breathe. The basement is also part of our apartment. I thought all was fixed. This past April, I had someone come to inspect and clean the wood burning fireplace. He also inspected the furnace chimney and found that the reline was not properly installed and not even hooked up to the furnace. He wrote an estimate and included the words "Not compliant with NJ State Fire Code" and included the code #. The landlord has done nothing to fix this problem (the hot water heater also exhausts into this chimney) since April. I also got a letter that he's raising the rent.
My question is: How much notice do I need to give before moving out? If I find another place that wants a Sept. 1 move-in date, can I just leave? Do I still need to give 30 days notice if there is a State Code violation?

The only problem which I haven?t been able to resolve is how to know who to call if the alarm goes off. If one of you accidently sets it off, the alarm company will only call one number. If they call tenant 1, she won?t know if it?s a true alarm if it?s been set off by the tenant 2 or tenant3/tenant4. Unfortunately, the police department will come and write a summons if it?s a false alarm. I believe they allow you two without issuing the summons, but after that it?s a problem. If any of you have any suggestions on how we can alleviate this problem, please let me know.



Is there a security system that works for multi-family homes? I haven't called companies yet. Should we all just get our own systems? Maybe they'll cut us a break since it's three in the same building.


I know with my alarm, there are different zones (front door, basement door, basement motion, windows, etc..) If the alarm goes off and I get a call, they can tell me which zone and I know to respond accordingly. In your situation, it seems only the front door can be alarmed. If each apartment door is a zone, how will others know who's home. You could be leaving and open your apartment door just to set off the alarm. The question still is 'how to deal with 3 different tenants and who gets called'. A phone line in a central area (hallway/stairway) that can be accessed by all tenants might work. A basic verizon line costs under $25 and maybe that's paid for by the landlord but divided up and added to each rent.

I would propose dog owners parents must get licensing, similar to a obtaining a car license. It would involve (1) basic dog kid owning knowledge test, (2) evidence of insurance so that, if your dog bites kid attacks someone, the victim can sue the shit out you and (3) maybe some other requirements that would be useful. People keep saying dogs have to be licensed now and I know that, but as these dog lovers parents love to say, it is not the dogs its the owners my kid. So owners parents should need a license, as well as the dogs kids. Also large fees should be charged for these licenses so that more money can be put into doggy law curfew enforcement.

As for urban areas, dog owning child bearing should be much more restrictive. In the suburbs or rural areas you can make a better argument for dog child freedom, but not in a city. I would require a mandatory license to evidence that every single dog child you own in a city has gone through some form of obedience training. A dog child seen off a leash causing problems should be immediately confiscated and sent to live with a family on a farm. I would also only allow dogs children in certain areas of the city, not on every street of the city. Some areas would be off limits to dogs children.

Thats what I can say Just off the top of my head...but any rules would best come out of a dialogue between dog owners parents and people like myself.

the quality is great and the prices can't be beat. stay away from monster cables (your paying for the name) and never buy cables from any of the big stores like best buy, 6th ave, etc... the markup there is just silly, but keep an eye out for their open box/display items. i picked up an $1700 yamaha receiver for a few hundred bucks. run hdmi cables from cable box to receiver and then another to tv. don't bother with rgb/component/coax cables after the cable box.

I tried in the past to have graffiti from a memorial removed and was told that because it's a memorial, the police need to be involved. The IA couldn't just go out there and paint over it. Needless to say, the maintance crew for the building painted over it a week or so later with no help from the city.

You really should have looked into a neighborhood before settling there. The talk of a dog run has been going on for some time now.

I'm sure the 6 or so owners that were thrown out will pay more attention to the rules if they truely are responsible dog owners (and spread the word to others). A lot more goes on in the neighborhood than just a few dog owners, it just goes on quietly. But I feel the dog owners that continue being rude are probably the same ones that don't pick up after their four legged friend. If the dog run is closed at 10pm, the whole park should be closed, that's the law right?
