Ankle deep? Beach communities can't predict occurrences such as this. Another BS lawsuit that costRead More taxpayers money. Every time you are in water there is a risk. Especially the ocean.
MissElanyS July 25, 2014 at 04:57 pm
@CementMixer: "Clear negligence"???? by whom? If the beach was unsafe and the townshipRead More did put signs up no swimming, they did everything they could do, short of placing velvet rope stanchions across the shoreline, to deter people from entering the water. There is no case here. The township may end up settling out of court but I would take my chances in front of a jury if I were the township attorneys.

I would think that if Piero actually depends on his salary and benefits from his public worker jobRead More he would have serious concerns about an overly ambitious, opportunistic and out of control politician who is AGAIN cheaply and unfairly targeting middle class public workers in his state in order to score some national recognition points from Republican extremists. And as corporate, non-executive employees in this country have been increasingly treated unfairly for years with their CEO's pay continuing to explode upward as their pay is remains stagnant and their benefits shrink, that shouldn't mean that public workers should also accept that same fate. Non-executive corporate employees have to also learn to unionize and organize to stand up to the continuing mistreatment.

Just go to Windward Beach and observe all the great benefits to the quality of life in Brick,Read More especially now that the state-of-the-art playground is in operation, and then imagine Brick Township without it. Preserve as much open space as possible and you'll NEVER regret it.
Joe P July 24, 2014 at 05:37 pm
Seems like alot of unanswered questions regarding the demolition of the building. I could beRead More mistaken but it seems we, the tax paying resident's of Brick paid for the demolition of the building. .. and how much did we pay? Who did we pay it to? and Why didn't the developer pay for it? Any of these questions worth investigating? Before they develop anything on that site, the developer should be mandated to pay the demolition fee back to the town.
J.JONES July 24, 2014 at 06:05 pm
Scarpelli's idea was a good one but this lot has been an eye sore now since 2003 so what ever theyRead More paid for it 2million?? Hasn't been worth it ..So if its worth 7.5 million ? how much have we spent in lawyers fee's and engineers, and lean up ? Get out of the real estate business and sell this and but that money to better use like lowering our taxes...

Any communication concerning illegal and/or criminal activity should be discoverable and usedRead More against any party.

@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?

Mel Sharples July 25, 2014 at 07:13 am
John, its the truth. We have a large swath of the population that can't or won't work, and we are aRead More nation that demands cheap food. Part of that is labor costs. After all, we're a people that willingly handed its manufacturing industry over to China so we could buy cheap crap at Wal-Mart. Illegals are critical to cheap food, plain and simple. If you traveled out west (argi) or to the flyover states (meatpacking) you'd know this. I love the conspiracies you cite to combat cold, simple economic realities that have been in place since the middle of the 19th century. And good luck sealing the borders when every year we cut the budget, and then put sequestration in place, so that some Canadian senator somehow representing Texas can sell books.
Mel Sharples July 25, 2014 at 07:15 am

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.
