Below is a copy of an email from the East District JCPD Community Affairs Office Dina Reilly and a letter from the JCPD regarding this hoax. Excellent advice and an excellent response from the JCPD all around

All the best.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: east <policeeast@jcnj.org>
Date: Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 4:54 PM
Subject: Halloween Update
To: east <policeeast@jcnj.org>

The Jersey City Police Department was made aware of false and misleading
information being posted on the web regarding gang initiation. Please keep
the following in mind when reading posts online (regarding crime and
safety):

1. Is the information coming from a credible source? Was the information
issued by the Jersey City Police Department?

2. You can always call your respective districts (telephone numbers posted
on www.njjcpd.org) for confirmation of information.

Chief Comey has issued a letter regarding the false information posted on
web sites regarding gang initiation at www.njjcpd.org, Halloween Update. A
copy is also attached.

Please pass this information along to all community members, neighbors,
family and friends.

Have a happy and safe Halloween.

P.O. Dina Reilly
Jersey City Police Department
East District Community Relations Officer

RE: Halloween Update
On October 30,2008 an unknown individual(s) began posting false information regarding
random shootings throughout the City of Jersey City. The erroneous information which
was being posted on various websites caused an increased number of calls into our
operations center seeking information. Although this increase did not cause a disruption in
service it stood the potential to do so. The increased volume of calls could have potentially
caused a delay in a response to a 911 call. The actions of this individual(s) placed residents
in jeopardy and was at a minimum irresponsible and possibly criminal

As a law enforcement agency we take our responsibilities very seriously. We devised an
intelligence driven plan to protect our residents. During the period in question there was
not one shooting in Jersey City. The men and women of the Jersey City Police Department
have once again done an outstanding job. We are at the midpoint of an operational plan
that was devised through intelligence gathering and community needs. In an effort to
alleviate some of the fears of the community I have contacted the Hudson county Sheriff
and asked for his assistance. Our goal is to have a uniformed officer at every primary and
secondary educational facility within the city at the conclusion of the school day today.

Our hope is that we will come to the end of our operational plan without incident, I can
assure you that at 1:30 pm today, October 31, 2008, we have not experienced any major
incidents. I can also assure you that we have no new intelligence to cause any concern. In
the event that we had received any information that would have placed the public in
jeopardy, we would have released that information immediately with the appropriate
recommendations.


Chief of Police
Thomas Comey

Maybe none of them are what they seem or arent random but I find it interesting there were 3 shootings, a stabbing and slashing this weekend reported in the Jersey Journal. Of these all except one seems they can be random. I wonder what happened Thursday through Saturday that didnt make the paper.

I heard that you can hack this site to get peoples personal information if enough people label you as a fail troll. So the little hoodrat's whose parents are to busy getting drunk, shooting drugs and beating on each other to give a S*it about them should stop posting irrelevant BS about unreported mass murders.

Wow, all those people were killed and we heard nothing. I guess the same cover-up happened in Paterson because the same rumor was going around there as well. They really had a lot of covering up to do. I am not saying that gang intiation isn't real, but come on. Every year it's the same rumor. I have heard it in JC, Paterson, Washington Heights, Brooklyn, and surprisingly enough Rochester. It's a Halloween myth, much like the boogieman.

I dodged the various dead bodies in the street, the numerous crips, bloods and other suspicous ghouls clammering something about candy and mumbling bout "tricks or treats" and thus confirmed their violent tendencies.

I safely arrived at my destination, Harsh House, a short distance from Rolon's Keyhole Bar and proceeded to drink many Saranac Pumpkin Ales with other ghouls including FABCD, Madame & Pierre Curie, Betty Bailout and Mr. Money Bags and other nefarious types along with our host who had provided these tasty drinks and pizza, as he and his friend made magical music that was broadcast online in real time.

[...]"Newark Mayor Cory Booker, police director Garry McCarthy and school superintendent Clifford Janey were all forced to address the rumors.

Booker called them "viral fear mongering."

McCarthy said he was "perplexed and outraged at the baseless and irresponsible rumors."


Still, to calm fears, Booker dispatched his personal security details to the schools yesterday, and McCarthy put numerous foot patrols on the school streets to augment the board of education police force. Janey said the district was "stepping up patrols and remains on high alert."

On the sidewalks and streets around Central High, there seemed to be as many cops as students, and as many cop cars as school buses.

All symbols of order, yes, but all reminders of "What if ...?"

And that is the fear, and the reality.

Im a Saint Peter's College student and the entire school got this email from the director of campus safety:

Please know that campus safety has confirmed the following information with the Jersey City Police Department Gang Intelligence Unit and they have not had any incidents nor are there any indications that this act has or will actually occur. We provide this message purely for informational purposes.

The following message has been circulating for several years without confirmation of an actual event. However, campus safety has learned that some members of our community have received generic text messages and e-mails that warn that 31 females will be killed at night as part of a street-gang initiation. Apparently, gang members in cars or trucks stop females and ask them for directions or money, and then they try to inflict injury to them. Because of this message, we urge the entire SPC community to be especially alert to their surroundings while walking on city streets.

We should also be aware of the possibility of Halloween and mischief night pranks while moving off campus. Please report any suspicious activity to campus safety immediately.

Arthur J. Youmans
Director of Campus Safety
Saint Peter's College
Phone- 201-761-7403

The only thing that happened to me on Thursday was getting egged when walking to my car from the school to the school parking lot on Tuers and Montgomery.

However, my girlfriends mom works at the hospital and 2 woman were shot in bayonne near the lightrail and 3 wounded and in critical condition from gunshot wounds last night..

I called the bayonne police department last night and the officer laughed at me and told me everything was false.

You dont know who to believe? This rumor has been circulating for YEARS (the highbeam one, etc...).. I guess all you can do is just be careful and cautious. I dont know what to believe, and Im not ashamed to say that I am on high alert and I will be staying home tonight in addition to staying home last night. You cant believe everything that the news says.. we all know how they manipulate their stories.. but Im pretty sure if someone was shot in front of someone else's house.. the news would be there in a heartbeat to report.

Anyway, there is no gang initiation or mass shootings tonight.


I know this was over exaggerated to the point it is unrealistic but it is even more unrealistic to say there is no gang initiations. It is a known fact that October , especially October 30th and 31st are major Blood initiation days. October 31st is almost a holiday of its own to this gang. Since the late 90s I always remember there being random slashings, beatings, stabbings and shooting these two days but for some reason it is never in the paper. I dont know if it is the police not reporting it to the news or the news not wanting to print the crimes but it seems these two days more then other days the paper under reports crime. Now I know the Jersey Journal doesnt report every major crime but ask your self why on days like Mischief Night and Halloween when major crimes are known to spike, very few crimes if any make the paper.

That guy Tom isn't posting anymore, I heard from my friends on the force that Hot Mom shoved a light sabre up his..., then shot him 8 times, it was all over the police radios. They dumped him in the hudson. Big cover up probably won't ever here about it on the news but trust me, I know people who know stuff. Oh and the world is ending on Sunday night everyone is invited to meet and drink the magic potion that will let us hitch a ride on the comet to save ourselves. Don't be late!!
