Any communication concerning illegal and/or criminal activity should be discoverable and usedRead More against any party. The intent of the law and the goal of justice are both undermined when criminals stand behind a technical rule that should not apply. A great start to dealing with the reality of crime.

wow what did that cost us as taxpayers???? funny how smart the cops are, when gun power gets wet itRead More becomes inert! you could hit it with a hammer! put a match to it! nothing will happen! how much "OVERTIME" did it cost us????how many pounds was removed????? what kind of power was it? they could have just placed it in a container and poured home heating oil on it! witch turns it to a safe pudding like substance. so why the need to make a media event out of it??? classic theft of taxpayer money by the cops!

Lol I agree with above comment these guys are retarded if they can't figure out how to dispose ofRead More inert wet gunpowder. And they really needed fire and ems on standby?? Haha.

Can't believe what I just read in this article. Please do not print anything further about thisRead More drama queen and her family. Court documents were sealed but the father leaked the info. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. If she had been my daughter I would've told her when she left the first time "don't let the door hit you in the a.. on the way out" and then she would've gotten a final kick you know where to remember me by.

Those of you in Northeastern Monmouth County I recommend the web site //wordontheshore.com for yourRead More local news. In the month I have been reading it, I haven't seen one article about parent-suing teenagers, celebrity tanning salons, or bimbos with the initials KK visiting the Jersey Shore. Just good local news of the two-rivers area.

@Winston Smith I noticed on another "Patch" you were asking somebody if they had vinylRead More records. If you go onto "Brick Patch", conversation section and scroll down you will see somebody is selling some "old vinyls" with their original sleeves. He/She says they are in good condition, some "Beatle's" and He/She has some 45's. I apologize to everyone else I know this is off topic!
Guess Who July 22, 2014 at 01:43 pm
I have seen these 2 scummers around Lakewood several times, hopefully I will again after they getRead More out. I'd like to discuss their immigration situation over some tequila while explaining American history to them including what was done with men like them before fools changed the laws here to protect the criminals while ignoring the victims. I'm sure it will be an interesting discussion that will hold their interest

Why do they find it necessary to close the park over an incident like this?

That was from a crazy neighbor who spies on the neighborhood to the best of her ability for her ownRead More enjoyment. I'd expect that to be from her phone and her first person POV (although maybe it's from an overzealous outward facing home security cam); neighbor-watching and the corresponding gossip has always been her M-O... At least maybe this time it will be beneficial, albeit still pestilent knowing the practice has evolved with time. Historically, super invasive without provocation and presumptuous to boot.

Gee what's taking Al scumbag Sharpton to step in and protect this piece of crap and say he blamesRead More the economy and society and this scumbags upbringing that causes him to steal and break into hardworking peoples cars or homes. WTF. All I know is this scumbag should be jailed for up to 7-10 and have someone burglerise this dirtbags A$$hole and rip it apart. Is it true that the police caught this scumbag by stepping on the back of waist of his pants because he wore them so low. LoL. He probably fell when his pants fell to his ankles. All I can say is , try to steal from me and you will spend life in the ground. Or be severely maimed. I work hard for everything I own and have. Typical scumbag with his smirk on his face. His picture should have been taken with his teeth knocked out. I'm not at all a racists. But when I watch the news everyday all I see and hear about is black on black crimes and black on white crime and also murder. Hey Al Sharpton what do you have to say about that. What's your Tawana Brawley excuse about the unbelievable high rate of crime and murder by the people you stand by and support or should I say chase after like the typical ambulance chasing scumbag lawyer. Why isn't Al Sharpton stepping up to the plate and supporting the poor rookie officer that was assassinated and murdered in cold blood in Jersey city. Knowing him he probably also left an empty bottle of Hennesy and a candle for that scumbag that murdered the young officer. Hey Al Sharpton why not change YOUR RACIST WAYS and step in and help the community and stop these people from thinking it fine to kill an innocent person let alone a officer who is doing his job to PROTECT AND SERVE THE PUBLIC.
JG July 16, 2014 at 07:18 am
Sharpton is afraid to turn against these people they might get him, white or black if you act like aRead More wild animal you get treated like a wild animal. THE HONESTLY FEEL THE COPS PICK ON THEM FOR NO REASON, the majority thta commit these crimes are black, so they should go after there own face for labeling them. there are plenty of white criminals out there and they get whats coming to them when there wrong and there have been whites that have killed cops also and other people and I feel the same way about them, I don't see Sharpton making excuses for them though.

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.
