I was glad to read that at least Mayor Fulop had a reply/ comment/ theory on the recent violent crime wave and he has only been in office 24 days.

Healy didn?t say a thing about crime in 9 years. His big statement was always ?crime is trending downward?.

Well James Beard, your comments are ironic about McGreevey, there was a scandal concerning the release from prison via the governor's office.

The State parole board releases the criminals, it is not the city's decision. So the victims and families would have to sue the state.

If only McGreevey had gotten to them first.

Jersey City mayor says recently-released criminals responsible for spate of gun violence in city

By Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal
July 23, 2013 at 10:44 PM

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said tonight that a spate of recent gun violence in the city might be attributable to the recent release from prison of three criminals who have returned to the city.

?I think that there are several bad actors,? Fulop said following an anti-violence meeting at the Mary McLeod Bethune Center that was organized by state Sen. Sandra B. Cunningham.

?My understanding is they exited the prison system at the same time and returned to Jersey City at the same time and gang violence escalated coinciding with some of those actors,? the mayor said. ?The police department is being aggressive about it and it is a challenge but I think we are going to be turning the corner very shortly.?

The fatal shooting of 23-year-old Amin Sumter of Gifford Avenue, on Crescent Avenue Street Friday night was the latest incident of the fatal gun violence the city is experiencing this summer.

Sumter?s murder was the fifth homicide in Jersey City this month, the sixth since June 30 and the 12th this year. The city saw only 13 homicides in all of last year, which city officials said was a record low.

Tonight's meeting at the center brought together police, clergy, community leaders, nonprofit groups, and elected officials to come up with solutions to the rampant gun violence.

Some of the participants said more recreational programs needed to be developed, while others said the issue was getting young people to know about the programs that already exist.

Churches needed to be more involved, some said people. Others advocated for putting more cops on foot patrol so they get to know residents.

Freeholder Bill O?Dea, who led another meeting tonight aimed at starting a citizens patrol, said there is a need for re-entry program for youthful offenders. Freeholder Jeff Dublin put the onus on families to teach their kids right from wrong.

The mayor?s choice for the new public safety director, James Shea, told the room of about 100 people, that the community and police need to work hand in glove.

?Everyone has to work together and the police department has to be out there in the community,? said Shea , a former Marine and a 23-year veteran of the New York Police Department who most recently coordinated the New York City-wide Youth Crime and Gang Initiative.

Police officials said they have shifted resources to Greenville from other areas in the city.

Others attending tonight?s event included: state Assemblyman Charles Maynor, Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino, Jersey City City Council members Michael Yun, Richard Boggiano, Joyce Watterman, Daniel Rivera and Diane Coleman, as well as former Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari, the Rev. Herbert Daughtry and Jersey City NAACP President Bill Braker.
