You would think in a town where the taxes are what they are, we wouldn't have these incidents as regularly as we do. I have friends with the police dept and there's a whole lot more that happens, we just don't hear about. How bout the police actually doing their job instead of issuing a parking summons for overnight parking etc. to the tax payers?!?!?

The town needs a serious overhaul or I suspect as soon as most can afford to, they will leave. Especially in riskier areas. That being said, look at Montclair. Ugh.
