So, fastharry, the only criminals in the US are liberals? Ridiculous statement.

Doesn't the NJ National Guard already maintain such weapons systems in this area? I believe thatRead More after the Nike missile base in Franklin Lakes - Mahwah was closed in the Cold War days of 1971 that there were military tank training in this area to train for civilian riots. Anyhow it is known that something as cheap or as crude as a Molotov cocktail can stop a tank and fry the crew inside.

Authorities say it appears the driver was "innattentive" when she caused the accident that killed a motorcyclist from Elmwood Park.
CF July 21, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Someone stopped short on Route 17 in the middle of the day.....that is unheard of. People drivingRead More with their heads up their butt in Bergen County......never. Being tailgated by someone on a cell phone .....never happens in North Jersey. People on motorcycles recklessly driving in between cars in slow (and fast) moving traffic….say it isn’t so. People please, I am surprised more motorcyclists are not killed the way people drive around here. Story says it all, person killed on the bike was tailgating as well, unfortunately they did not have a couple of tons of steel and an airbag to protect them. Watch for the lawsuit, vehicle drivers will be found to be 20% responsible for the death; poor family will get a couple of hundred grand from insurance and no apology. The guys in the Ferraris that killed the motorcyclist by Giant’s stadium got manslaughter charges by the same prosecutors office, so if they had the case, I am sure the drivers would have been charged.
Leaking Ink July 21, 2014 at 08:16 pm
The title of this article blames the Franklin Lakeswoman for killing Motorcyclist. The articleRead More itself states that Authorities have not disclosed which vehicle killed the Motorcyclist. Which is it?

Ryon Cumberbatch, 29, of Brooklyn, N.Y., has been charged with 2nd Degree Vehicular Homicide in the death of Waldwick Police Officer Christopher Goodell.

Everyone who agrees with you is normal, and anyone who disagrees is brainwashed? The guy justRead More posted some real points and that's the best you have? Didn't you just say to him, am I not allowed to have my own opinion? So in your mind no one else can have one, and if they do your the judge and jury. Again with the insults. You are pathetic!
Phil Brooks July 23, 2014 at 05:17 pm
M. Justicel, What I'm insinuating in comparing police to politicians is that it's very easy to getRead More into either line of work with the best intentions in mind then quickly get caught up in the culture that's a part of both. Just so you don't think I'm singling out pols and cops, there's a mentality in almost any job. There's a so-called "athlete's mentality" for instance. An example is this: Many of us play golf. If we have a good run of holes, we wonder when the wheels will fall off. The golfer (as opposed to the hacker) doesn't think like that. He puts the bad hole behind him and moves on to the next one while the hacker broods for a couple holes wondering what went wrong. I had a mentality in the career I worked at before I retired. I was confident in my abilities and knew when to put it on cruise control. OK, enough of that. You said you were in the military. Tell me how many officers had an "alpha male" mentality. I'd guess is was far more than a few. It comes with the rank and the uniform. Yes, I know a few police officers, active and retired. Though I like them all, there's a certain amount of alpha male there, too. Having not done it, I'm sure there's a sense of power, intimidation and entitlement when you put on the uniform, badge and gun. And, if you want a simple example of that, think of how many times you're driving down the road, even with traffic and/or close to the speed limit and you see a cop, even with his lights on and a paying customer. Do you tense up a little? Do you reach for the brake? Why does that happen? Because you're intimidated. You know it. They know it. As far as why Officer Goodell was parked there, it just so happens that (a) there's not a lot of Waldwick on 17, (b) Bergen Ave. happens to be the first of the side streets that intersect with 17 when you head south (Summit is still in Allendale), and (c) it's, as you said, a downhill section of straightaway after going over the rise, probably a couple hundred yards up the road. So, Goodell found the best place he could to hide. After all, if he's sitting out in the open, he's not going to catch anyone and it appears to me that his goal wasn't to slow people down but to apprehend them. Let's say that the unsuspecting driver has a couple hundred yards to identify and react. At 70 MPH, that's six seconds. And, as he's not going to react instantaneously, by the time he sees the unmarked car in the dark and hits the brake, he's been clocked and is a dead duck. What bothers me about this whole sordid affair was the rush to charge the truck driver with second degree murder. Yes, maybe he's at fault. But there might also be other details about the accident (did he swerve to avoid something, for instance) for which there should be enough blame to spread around--to the driver, to the officer, to a third driver, if any.

Jack Q, My comment about only in Wayne was sarcastic in the fact that many in Wayne think theirRead More kids are perfect and nothing goes on in Wayne. Yes, false ID's and drugs etc. are very serious problems in Wayne I agree. There are so many parties where the parents supply the liquor for underage drinkers. Police should crack down on this also.
Bob Vey July 16, 2014 at 08:45 am
The shooter was an ex-con. He HATED police. For some reason, he has had enough. Maybe he was drunkRead More or stoned & didn't want to go back to jail. So he grabs a security guards gun & waits for the police to arrive & opens up on them. After killing the first cop the next two cops to arrive on the scene open up on him & kill him. Police cars need bullet proof glass & steel plates put in the doors. The results from his blood test should be coming out any day now.

If you look at the people who frequent Walmart, you get a clear, pathetic, pitiful, picture of theRead More core of the problem. Severely undereducated, easily brainwash-able, very apparent lack of self value. Perfect target voter for the republiscams.

@MaryLynn if Walmart is such a great company, why can't THEY help their employees? I understand ifRead More there is a divorce or death etc.....but for Christmas??

A subject in Jersey City stabbed a security guard and took the guard's handgun. When a two manRead More police car responded the subject shot and killed the officer on the passenger side and was then shot and killed by the police. The subject had claimed earlier that he would be famous. Of course the media has published his name and given him his 2 seconds of fame. So the copycats will keep on copying.

If the woman owns a gun legally she should know the laws period. Laws are the laws if we like themRead More or not. I hope they cut her a break for being honest but it is her responsibility to know the laws. Ignorance of Law is no defense in the United States.
William July 21, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Thank You jersey girl. When a person legally Buys a Gun a Responsibility and Accountability comesRead More along with it. Just as with a Drivers Lic. Even tho one is a Right and one is a Privilege. Ignorance is not Bliss. Plain and simple she broke New Jersey Law, No matter the excuse The court will decide not The Public Court of Opinions, Just because in Penn. one can walk in Buy a Gun and the law says you have a right to Carry, does not give you the same rights in any other states. And THUDNJ You really think The Federal GOV. would do a better job . IRS-VA- CIA -FBI Yea Right. And to repeat my Self To Obtain a New Jersey Firearm Purchasing Permit, Be it Pistol or Shotgun. It goes threw back Ground checks From Local Police , State Police and Federal ( FBI ) checks, So in essence She or any one from out of State should have more rights the a New Jersey Citizen. And THUDNJ it is The Federal Gov, Us Senators and Congress that are coming up with these screwy laws, So every time some one is found with a Loaded gun in their car from out of State or MEXICO where they bought it Legally Most with no Background Checks or Even a Drivers LIC. Where A Drivers LIC. will be given to the Illegals if obamanation has his way they just have to say I did not know it was Illegal I am Sorry, This whole story can go on and on with Opinions when IT IS THE LAW of New Jersey she Broke,
