Hundreds of other people question the railroading of the driver that hit the intentionally hiddenRead More police car busily gathering revenue for Waldwick rather than actually protecting or serving. If a cop hit and killed a civilian who was changing his tire with no lights on the civilian would be charged with manslaughter because the police never do anything wrong. Just ask them!

The money garnered for the municipality from a traffic summons is miniscule, night radar detailsRead More turn up drunk drivers and cds arrests, if a cop hit a civilian like you describe he would definitely be charged criminally as well as administratively, take your anti cop attitude and misinformed statement and use it as a suppository
Phil Brooks July 24, 2014 at 05:36 pm
Disgusted, Shame on you for making it personal and accusatory. If, as you say, the money fromRead More traffic summonses is minuscule, why do police officers on radar duty routinely do their best to make themselves visible only at the last second? Why do Officer Goodell and thousands of other officers like him put themselves seemingly in harm's way by sitting in a dark car on a dark road waiting for speeders?
Old Guy July 24, 2014 at 09:44 am
if they are talking to another on duty officer or patrolman, it is possible that they areRead More discussing occurrences around the town. It is important for officers to be on the same page with each other and have a shared knowledge.

can someone please answer me why Bergen County has their own police department and sheriff'sRead More department? Its like the only county that has both and has one of the smallest crime rates? this is why Christie has no patience for public employees. All the other hard working cops have to be punished because of this misconduct and profiteering of tax payers.

In case anyone is wondering why this checkpoint was announced, it's because legally, it has to be,Read More otherwise it's a violation for the Fourth Amendment. If you would like to know more, you can do some research into Michigan State Police v Sitz (1990). Long and short of it is that random check points really can't be random. They must announced with a time, place, purpose, and duration ahead of time in local media (like Patch), and must be clearly marked by signage ahead of the actual check point. If you don't like it, I suggest you write your representative and suggest he/she propose a repeal or alteration of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

It is bad enough with Big Brother hiding in the shadows; but an MRAP!? We are not the city ofRead More Camden; (no offensive to the good people in Camden). We are Bergen County (are we not one of the wealthiest counties in the state and maybe the United States!?
JeffO July 24, 2014 at 12:52 pm
FACT: According the Bergen Dispatch (which appears to be the voice of the county Dems but is backingRead More Republican Saudino in his feud with Republican County Executive Donovan who's up for re-election), “…the Bergen County Police bought a bearcat (which is like an MRAP) for $750,000 along with a 50 caliber sniper rifle a few years back.” Setting aside the Dispatch's contention that this makes Donovan a hypocrite because she let that purchase go through...and setting aside whether a presumably built-to-order-for-Bergen bearcat is really “like a [built-for-Fallujah] MRAP" -- why does the county need another such armored vehicle if we already have one? Isn’t the whole argument for merging the Bergen County Police into the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office about avoiding such duplication?
JeffO July 24, 2014 at 01:08 pm
Sorry, I missed the point in the Sheriff's statement that the BCPD's "armored truck" hasRead More been retired because of age. Is that the same vehicle (the bearcat) that the Sheriff says in the same paragraph was purchased in 2011?? Why would THAT be retired after little more than three years at most??? Surely it hasn't been getting THAT much use.

I am not familiar with all the specifics of the case and hence speaking from a very limitedRead More perspective but were these allegations proven ? If these allegations were true then by all means justice was served. Discrimination is wrong in any situation or capacities. In the private sector the rules are different. They shouldn't be but they are. I don't know why that is. And to Lisa's point it still goes on as if it were the 1970's.

Authorities say it appears the driver was "innattentive" when she caused the accident that killed a motorcyclist from Elmwood Park.
CF July 21, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Someone stopped short on Route 17 in the middle of the day.....that is unheard of. People drivingRead More with their heads up their butt in Bergen County......never. Being tailgated by someone on a cell phone .....never happens in North Jersey. People on motorcycles recklessly driving in between cars in slow (and fast) moving traffic….say it isn’t so. People please, I am surprised more motorcyclists are not killed the way people drive around here. Story says it all, person killed on the bike was tailgating as well, unfortunately they did not have a couple of tons of steel and an airbag to protect them. Watch for the lawsuit, vehicle drivers will be found to be 20% responsible for the death; poor family will get a couple of hundred grand from insurance and no apology. The guys in the Ferraris that killed the motorcyclist by Giant’s stadium got manslaughter charges by the same prosecutors office, so if they had the case, I am sure the drivers would have been charged.
Leaking Ink July 21, 2014 at 08:16 pm
The title of this article blames the Franklin Lakeswoman for killing Motorcyclist. The articleRead More itself states that Authorities have not disclosed which vehicle killed the Motorcyclist. Which is it?
