Questions:

Why is he NOT indicted for Speeding, Reckless Driving AND Manslaughter?


There's a distinction between the summonses that were issued right away for the traffic violations, and the criminal charges brought in the indictment by the grand jury.

In the first category, the newspaper story says: "Following the April 19 accident, Spolizino ... was issued summonses for speeding, careless driving, no vehicle inspection sticker and failure to wear a seat belt."

In the second category (the criminal charges), the story says that Spolizino "has been indicted by a grand jury on three charges including aggravated manslaughter..... a death by auto charge and one of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in death...."


Right, that's what I was trying to explain. Where are the criminal charges for speeding and reckless driving, along with the standing Manslaughter charge? He got sumonses for them, but they are not part of the criminal charges. Perhaps I am unclear on what actions fall under the current charges (ie, does speeding fall under "death by auto"?)

Also, if you recall, it took several weeks for those initial summonses to be issued against the driver, no blood/breathalizer were taken, and the police refuse to release the 911 recordings or the speed he was travelling at time of impact. This whole thing smells bad, IMHO. All because the perpetrator is a cop. If he wasn't a cop, you can bet it wouldn't have been handled so poorly.

A few of us are planning to speak on this issue before the City Council mtg. on Aug. 28th. We plan to ask them to demand of the County Prosecutor an answer as to why there is such a difference in the indictments when the basic fact of a the violent death by an out of control vehicle is so obvious. If anyone wants to join, or just come to the meeting to show support, we'd appreciate this.

The Jersey Journal sought recordings of 911 calls made immediately after the April 19 incident, but was rebuffed by city officials who said the calls were not public records. The paper is contesting that decision.


I thought all calls to 911 were public record?

The article says:

"Following the April 19 accident, Spolizino, who is assigned to the city?s emergency services unit and makes a $93,590 salary, was issued summonses for speeding, careless driving, no vehicle inspection sticker and failure to wear a seat belt."

So he was issued summons as was the bus driver. Are you asking if these infractions are criminal offenses?

Contrast this with the speed with which the authorities acted after the accident that killed the infant. It was announced by the same sheriff's department that is responsible for the same county street, the very same day, that the jitney driver

"Idowu Daramola, 48, of New York, is being issued summonses for reckless driving and for using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle, but he is being booked on the criminal offense of death by auto, a crime carrying a possible prison term of five to 10 years upon conviction, Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari told The Jersey Journal."

Looks like there may be an indictment on the way for the cop.

Here, here! When you live here long enough each person you know has a first hand story of this boys club corruption. I refuse to participate any longer, I refuse to own and pay taxes to such a corrupt system. It's a lose, lose in JC.

Spolizino, a member of the Emergency Services Unit, was issued summonses for speeding, careless driving, no vehicle inspection sticker and failure to wear a seat belt. Police Chief Tom Comey refused to comment further and wouldn't reveal how fast they believe Spolizino was going at the time of the accident until the investigation is completed.

Comey said that the investigation is still active and the results will be handed over to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office.

Go Joe!Ok, maybe the cop wasn't drinking. But a man was killed. And he was thrown about half a block with no skid marks...on a road that has a 25mph limit. No doubt about it the driver was speeding. Also, note that no summons was issued at all. This is outrageous. The victim lived in my building. This needs a proper investigation and if JCPD has nothing to hide, let an outside reputable agency do it to show they have nothing to hide.


The Hudson Reporter article has one comment from Joeharkins | April 28, 2013
Quote:

Deputy Police Chief Nalbach offers yet one more reason why an independent investigation is necessary when he states, "In response to Harkins? claim that he and other witnesses have not been contacted, . . . . We don?t know Joe Harkins from a hole in the wall."

That ignorance can only be either deliberate or or incompetent; possibly even both. Exactly how hard am I to find?

I was born in Jersey City more than 80 years ago. My family on both sides (and very large families, too in the Irish tradition of the time) has been here 3 generations. My phone number is listed. I am a registered voter. I have lived at this same address, a short walk from Police HQ for many years. Only 3 weeks ago, I had a long, pleasant and mutually supportive phone conversation, and an email exchange, with one the highest ranking officers in the department on a subject of mutual interest. My statements of facts that the vehicle did not stop at the scene within my view, were made in front of the JC City Council at a public meeting where my name and address are publicly registered and I am known to at least 5 of those Council members and by the Mayor who married me and my wife not so very long ago. I am the Committeeman for Ward B, District 2.

Did DPC Nalbach even ask the reporter for my phone number or email address?

Yet, the Deputy Police Chief, an official one would expect has virtually instant access to that information and more, does not know how to find me. Or, if he does, he has not.

I do understand that the initial reaction is defensive of the department. But I repeat that the best way of defending the good reputation of the JCPD is to invite an independent investigation, free of suspicion of obfuscation or bias, where one of their own is involved.

Therefore, by the time this response appears in public, I will have sent a request to the Office of the Attorney General of the State of NJ that an independent investigation be launched that will reveal the unbiased truth about this tragedy

Comey should lose his job over his handling of this investigation. How could they not give him a sobriety test??!! No skid marks? Didn't see him?

Protecting one of their own like the good old days.

If it was NYC, they'd just say "No Criminality Suspected"

Fat Ass Bike, sobriety tests should be compulsory in all fatal accidents, theres only 1 problem with that , which it is called the United States Constitution. Last time I checked we still have a Constitution and unless I am mistaken Police Officers in Jersey City are United States Citizens and as such are afforded those rights.In order for a sobriety test to be administered there must be Probable Cause, simply because it was a fatal ACCIDENT doesn't mean the driver was drunk. So enlighten me what is the Probable Cause for a sobriety test?

Given the trajectory/distance that the victim traveled, how could this driver have been going 25mph or less? He had to be speeding. And also, as mentioned above - did the driver run a red light, or was the light green for him and the pedestrian jay-walked?

Like others said, crime is crime no matter who does it. It may very well have been an "accident" but all accidents need to get the same thorough investigation, no matter who the perp is. I love good cops. But justice needs to be served here.

I've also just learned that this victim lived in my building. Heartbreaking. Young guy just out of law school at his first big job trying to get his promising law career going.


Wow. That's really sad.

Not good enough - Any accident, especially when there is an injury, an alcohol and drug test should (compulsory) be performed on the victim and driver.

Comey suggests that if you 'look' sober then you must be sober ! I bet if Joe Citizen was behind the wheel, a test would be carried out.

Was the off-duty cop speeding and why would the pedestrian suggest there was hesitation on crossing and then returning to the kerb ?

A lot of grey areas in this fatality

I live right at that intersection. While we don't know if the driver was speeding or not, this stretch of JFK has a terrible speeding problem from SPU all the way to Lincoln Park/Communipaw. Its especially bad as drivers make the curve when crossing Duncan. I believe this intersection has a red-light cam. I wonder if it caught the footage of him crossing.

Granted,the pedestrian should not have crossed against the light. But this roadway really needs better signage, reflective re-painting, and even some speed bumps IMHO. I'd even advocate for one of those live "MPH" signs that displays everyone's speed as they approach it.

Michael Spolizino, 36, a Jersey City police officer, struck and killed a man crossing Kennedy Boulevard Friday night, authorities confirmed.

A Jersey City man crossing Kennedy Boulevard Friday night was struck and killed by an off-duty Jersey City police officer, police confirmed this afternoon.
According to an accident report, Stephen A. Clifford, 24, was walking east on Fairmount Avenue at 10 p.m. when he was struck by Michael Spolizino, 36, who has been with the Jersey City Police Department since 2007.

Clifford, who had moved to Jersey City from Bellmore, N.Y. recently, was rushed to the Jersey City Medical Center and pronounced dead at 10:35 p.m.

A witness, who did not give his name, told responding police officers that Clifford "was crossing (Kennedy Boulevard) while the light was green, hesitated, then darted across and was struck by the vehicle," according to the accident report.

Spolizino, who was driving a 2005 Chevrolet, told officers at the scene that he did not see Clifford crossing the street and that Clifford "came out of nowhere," the accident report said.

Jersey City police spokesman Stan Eason said no summonses were issued, but Jersey City police are investigating. Police Chief Tom Comey said the results of the Jersey City accident investigation will be forwarded to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office.

Comey said there was no indication that Spolizino was under the influence of alcohol or any other substance and that a sobriety test was not administered. Comey also said that the investigation will attempt to determine how fast Spolizino was driving when he struck Clifford.
