Trenton NJ, Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26) released the following statement in response to reports that a summit attended by a number of prominent elected officials, including New Jersey’s own U.S. Senator Cory Booker, opened with chants praising convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard.

Pennacchio has been a vocal advocate for the return of Chesimard. He and fellow Senate Republican, Sen. Anthony Bucco (R-25) have long sponsored a State Senate resolution, SR-15, urging Chesimard’s extradition from Cuba.

Did not the state of NJ PBA Endorse all Democrats ?

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Trenton NJ, A statement from the New Jersey State Police in response to the recent Fox News story called “Conference featuring 2020 Dems begins with fiery chant quoting fugitive cop-killer Assata Shakur”

Ridgewood even hosted a group that promoted cop killer Joanne Chesimard.

“It is an affront to every man and woman who wears the badge that someone would choose to evoke the words of a convicted cop killer and fugitive from justice at a political conference. The men and women of the New Jersey State Police will never forget the sacrifice made by Trooper Werner Foerster on May 2, 1973 nor will we forget that the person convicted of his murder remains a fugitive for nearly 40 years. We will remain steadfast, both in the pursuit of Joanne Chesimard and in the preservation of the memory of Trooper Werner Foerster, Badge #2608.”

“Gone but never forgotten.”

– Colonel Patrick Callahan, New Jersey State Police

Trenton NJ, In response to a poster for airline JetBlue’s Black History Month campaign “honoring” Joanne Chesimard, who was convicted of murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973, Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez released the following statement. Chesimard escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she remains at large.

            “There’s no place in Black History Month, or any month for that matter, for us to pay tribute to a convicted murderer,” said Jimenez (D-Bergen, Hudson). “Joanne Chesimard made a career out of seeking out police officers to harm or even kill, and she tragically took the life of one of our brave state troopers. And as a woman of Cuban descent, it’s devastating to know she has been able to live free under political asylum in Cuba for decades. Chesimard does not belong on a poster or a pedestal. She belongs in an American prison. JetBlue’s actions were insensitive and extremely disrespectful to the heroic men and women in law enforcement and Trooper Foerster’s family. I’d like to express my full support for the New Jersey State Police and their outstanding efforts to honor Trooper Foerster’s memory and keep our communities safe.”

Reader says Ridgewood Police Presence at Candle Light Vigil caused more tension

"Anti Hatred/Anti Violence" Candlelight vigil held at the Emmanuel Baptist Church

Ridgewood Police Chief Jacqueline Luthcke personally supervised all uniformed and plainclothes officers who were assigned to provide security at an “Anti Hatred/Anti Violence”

Chief of Police supervises the Police Department at the vigil?? What could possibly happen in a vigil with 50-100 people where all think alike?! Why dramatize a simple event and in the process cause more tension than necessary? Ironically the event is supposed to ease tensions.

Reader says Democrats, support terrorist and cop killers in varying degrees of enthusiasm


It appears to be a case of the support for this killer having morphed from a relatively small number of radical lefties, to the overall umbrella of the Democrat Party. I’m sure there are a few that don’t support her, but I suspect if you asked most Democrats, they would support her in varying degrees of enthusiasm.

Groups who want the public to believe they ‘do good works’ supports a murderer………….. well, that kind of kills the do-good mantra now doesn’t it? We as a society have reached critical mass – murderers are supported, hard working tax payers who want to keep more of their take home pay ridiculed, people who are able but don’t work coddled and given every benefit to scam the system, illegal immigrants given equivalent rights to citizens – these are just a few issues, but they speak to the bizarre world we now live in.

Also, Democrats honored the Puerto Rican terrorist who led the terrorist attacks that killed many in NYC, including a man whose son now live in Glen Rock.

The same terrorist whose sentence Barack Obama commuted in his final days as President. The same terrorist who still refuses to express any remorse for him terrorist activities.

I have been filled with too much pain and emotion to share my concerns and outrage in any coherent manner over the past few weeks. But here it goes.

Where was, NAACP, and Black Lives Matter when Alton Sterling, the criminal shot while fighting against arrest in Baton Rouge, joined the Crips? Why didn’t they help this callous and dead-beat dad with the irresponsible $25,000 he owed in back child-support for his 5 children? Why did these “leaders” refuse to mentor this soulless predator who had robbed and assaulted black folks in his community non-stop for the past 20 years?

Here is the answer: They were too busy blaming the Police who are the Front-Line Defenders of freedom, liberty and justice in the very communities who have now risen up against them. One thing these riot-promoters have gotten right is their request for civilians’ cooperation, to be compliant, when stopped by Law Enforcement. Even Dallas Chief, David

Brown, recently told the media that the problem is not racism, but rather people who are refusing to be compliant when stopped by Law Enforcement. After looking at many reports here in Bergen & Passaic County, I found that to be true here as well.

Chief Brown further expounded that fact: “To protesters in the streets, he suggested channeling frustration into public service: ‘We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in. And we’ll put you in your neighborhood, and we will help you resolve some of the problems you’re protesting about.’” (NYT 07/12/2016)

When we look at the paid rioters (yes that is what they are), can you find one among them who is a part of the solution? The NAACP came out today saying the US government must defund police departments accused of racism. Really? One Chicago activist publically demanded the expulsion of ALL police from the city of Chicago. Really? Now, that would be

The Leftist agitators are not interested in facts. They are stuck in their mindset of resentment and maintaining power. They offer no real solutions, only baseless blame and criminal retribution. Cops, just like our teachers, spend countless hours participating in Cultural

Diversity, Active Diffusion Strategies, and countless other courses to become more sensitive and “culturally competent”. We are hog-tying and strangling them with all these rules and polices when the answer lies within each of us to control our behavior, words and attitudes-Not

I ask everyone to PLEASE show your support to our Law Enforcement today and every day. Thank them, wear a blue ribbon, write an article, or help people understand the proper protocol when approached by police like my Daddy did when I was only 8 years old. Please do NOT allow our Cops to leave their families each day thinking, as Baton Rouge Officer Montrell

Jackson wrote days before he was gunned down by a coward: “I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me.”
