I've seen a lot of grammar mistakes in the Patch and on other "media" sites. That shouldRead More never, ever, happen! No excuses!

Aaaand just so we're clear regarding the NJ motor vehicle code N.J.S.A Title 39 Chapter 1 Section 1Read More lists the following: "Driver" means the rider or driver of a horse, bicycle or motorcycle or the driver or operator of a motor vehicle, unless otherwise specified. and furthermore regarding chapter 4 of the above title governing moving violations: 39:4-1. The provisions of this chapter applicable to the drivers of vehicles on the highways shall also apply to the drivers of all vehicles owned or operated by this State, the United States, any territorial or Federal district, any other State or any county, municipality or any other political subdivision thereof, subject to such specific exceptions as are set forth in this chapter. The provisions of this chapter shall apply to the owners and drivers of vehicles on highways, roadways, driveways, parking areas or upon any grounds owned and maintained by the State of New Jersey, or any State department or agency, the counties, the municipalities and the school district boards of education of this State. This chapter shall not apply to persons, teams, motor vehicles and other equipment while actually engaged in work on the surface of a highway, but shall apply to such persons and vehicles when traveling to or from the work. But thanks for comin out.

I have no doubts at all that the NJ State Police are in fact looking out for the good of all of ourRead More citizens and their intentions are good and just. However, All Law enforcement authorities at every level of government are extremely prejudiced in their enforcements of the laws. They routinely go out of their way to enforce driving laws at this type of concert event, yet other concerts and events that are attended by mostly rich and wealthy people are ignored entirely. When is the last time anyone saw a check point at a Country Club? When is the last time anyone has seen a check point at any political convention? While I have on complaints about checkpoints __ My time has Value also. If I want a police motor vehicle accident report I am charged for their time to produce the report. When I am delayed in a checkpoint for 15 minutes I also want to be Compensated for my time. Our US Constitution is clear __ The government must pay us Just Compensation when the take our property from us __ and to me my time is very valuable property to me and we are all deserving of compensation when the police take our time away from us with delays at checkpoints.

Everyone hates the inconvenience of the traffic stop, but when it stops that one drunk from drivingRead More a car and killing someone in your family, isn't it worth it? If only there had been a traffic stop the Christmas Eve that the drunk hit my cousin head on and killed her and her 4 year old, we would have been enjoying he holidays instead of spending them in a funeral home! Some of you have to stop seeing laws as merely suggestions and start abiding by them!

For a snake expert to see the head and neck of a 14 foot snake and not able to grab it as it swamRead More past his leg, sounds like billable hours to me. I've owned and handled these snakes before and as an expert he should have been able to get the snake. If the snake wanted the man he would have went after him. I've had boas that would let a rat bite them without doing anything back. For the most part, these snakes will strike at you if they feel threatened, but will not kill for the heck of it. They kill to eat. Now granted a constrictor will throw his body around but if your not seen as prey they will not intentionally kill you. Doesn't seem as if he has much of a plan to capture the snake. Unfortunately it will probably be killed due to somebody else's irresponsibility!

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.

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,

Judging by the "song" he penned and posted 11:30 Thursday night he appears to have other issues as well. Ms. Webber???

C'mon CC! What the heck does the Guv'nor have to do with allegations in a civil court case? Do youRead More want the Guv to be responsible for our trash pickup misadventures, too? The JS issues are natural disaster-related so, of course, that falls under Head-of-State purview. Potential corporate criminal matters are for our prosecutors to handle - ok? It seems a new national pastime to pile on CC for every ill or perceived pain in NJ. It's mostly public union driven aided by their willing accomplices in the msm, of course. Given that the prevailing lean economic times have finally caught up with the unrealistic bloated pensions and relatively short working careers of our "public servants," we real taxpayers shouldn't fall for their "death throw" histrionics. They need to wakeup and adapt to these economic times just like we did 2 decades ago....

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.
