Alex C...just one question. Would you fell that same way if one of your loved ones was injured orRead More died because of a drunk driver AND it could of been prevented by a checkpoint?

so sad why can't the police offer free rides so people can have a good time.

I fully expect people to knock on my door every now and again. Happens on a rather regular basisRead More actually . You are correct , the article doesn't discuss the detail of the call however it does clearly indicate that the officers knocked on the door. They didn't walk in the home or bust down a door. People shouldn't own any dog who will can not be contained by a closed door or handle the sound of someone knocking on the other side of it. The dog should be put down and the owner be held responsible. If your dog , on your property runs up and bites anyone , you are responsible . The leash law exists for a reason . Even in your own back yard you can be sued if you can't control your animal.
LindaSue July 23, 2014 at 11:31 pm
Ok......here's a thought for all you judgmental people. Imagine a pit bull is charging at YOU. YouRead More don't know how you would react. I recently had a similar situation happen to me. I love dogs, I even know some pit bulls that I like but after my recent experience if I was being charged at by one and I had a gun, I would shoot the dog. They are very dangerous and have killed or maimed many people. I say, maybe accidentally shooting himself in the hand and injuring the pit bull was better than being attacked by that dog.

Man?

Or those kids will pick the lettuce and grapes for minimal expense, so that you can buy cheapRead More produce. Because god knows Americans won't. They'll also likely bankroll the government programs that keep old people chugging along, in the form of sales taxes. Those are FAR more likely outcomes than them joining the same gangs they left their countries to get away from. But never let logic get in the way of a good rant, because 'Murka#1.

I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't realize this is a scam. Uncle Same will threaten you alright,Read More but they'll do it by jamming up your mailbox with notifications that you owe them that 9 cent's and with interest and penalties you can be sure it will be more like $10.00 in the end if you don't pay it.

What does that mean? Convicted of trying to molest his 6 year old daughter? He's been convicted, soRead More it was more than trying. He's probably in Newark somewhere just fitting into the masses of people living there.

This guy really is a knucklehead!What kind of a hitman has to have the gun given to him for theRead More job?That's like hiring a truck driver who doesn't know how to back up!!Shouldn't this have told the Greek that this and only $20K for a murder,that he wasn't getting a "Quality Job"?Fortunately the guy wasn't able to pull it off and "Uncle Gus" is still able to "EAT HEAVY".He'll be out again in 8.5 yrs-NOT LONG ENUFF!!!!

if he wanted to kill him, he could have just fed him some of that nice rich diner food, I guess heRead More didn't want to torture him with a slow death though, just kill him. But seriously, 10 years for plotting (premeditated) attempted murder? If this happened in Greece, they'd probably hang him.
Pad July 15, 2014 at 02:46 pm
Greed, All for greed. This man had nothing and he planned to kill someone who gave it all to him.Read More This man deserves 25 years in jail. To betray your family like that is disgusting.
Danelectro59 July 14, 2014 at 12:07 pm
That guy was flying up my street just before the NCPD started pursuing him. His MINIMUM speed wasRead More 50 MPH, and he didn't slow down entering a sharp bend in the road. How he made it all the way to E. Greenbrook Rd. without killing himself is beyond me.
Michelle Stocker July 14, 2014 at 04:43 pm
People need to follow rules. Pull over and slow down when police officers are behind you. There isRead More no need to evade an officer . and when you travel at that date of speed stuff like this happens. Glad the police officer didn't get hurt.

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. Without these types, the right wingers might eke out 10 pr 20% of the vote every election. Its no wonder why the red states are the poorest educated in the country.

@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?? Give your employees a bonus free turkey! While the Walmart CEO is being brought his dinner prepared by his staffed cook. He should maybe think of the little people who got him to where he is.

good luck , with all the court stuff maybe you can get some money in four / five years from now .Read More but walmart is a cheap place to work for .

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.
jersey girl July 21, 2014 at 01:15 pm
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,

What a damn shame,an employee out doing his job,WARNING LIGHTS ON,and gets driven into by someRead More kid.Most likely with not much experience handling his vehicle and/or in addition not paying attention.

just a thought but maybe mandatory insurance on people owning pit bulls. it might be time to lookRead More into this as a 1st step
Kayla T July 9, 2014 at 03:43 pm
Let me ask you a question, why should I need insurance for my breed of dog. He is loving, kind,Read More gentile, properly trained and obedient. My mother on the other hand has a shih tzu who has bit me more than once and left little scars, yet no insurance is needed for them, if there is a regular dog attack in the news it just says "DOG ATTACK" if it is a pit bull negative words like mauled or vicious are used. Could this just have been a child who grabbed the dog and he reacted. They use their teeth and hands to feel and we react and flip out on people everyday. Am I saying this is right ..no? Just because the news is sensationalized doesn't mean it is a norm. First it was German Shepard's, than Dobermans, next Rottweilers and now Pit Bulls, they are good dogs and if they are trained (as any dog should be trained) then there should be no problem. I will not be naive and believe that nothing could happen but if you are a responsible owner then this should not be a common occurrence. So no to insurance, and how about instead of adopting these animals out to any regular joe, a complete check of the home and living situation and your financial capacity to take care of the dog should be addressed.

Juliana Brady July 4, 2014 at 01:22 pm
Weekender's don't pay attention to such important things like how to get out of a rip current. EvenRead More I a strong swimmer with certifications had trouble getting out of a couple of them. I also fully knew how to handle myself and it's still a killer for those who come down here to party and then think they are jumping into a pool in the backyard. Never turn your back to the Ocean, give it the respect it deserves, and don't go in just to cool off thinking it's just a "rip current" no biggie! The Ocean will take you down in a flash.
