  1. This woman could not have behaved more poorly without engaging in violence against the officers involved.

  2. Please I’m sure there’s more to the story. Who cares that she will resigned. I’m sure she pulls a lot of weight holding that position, very political, forethought he has more power than any local Town power. I’m not saying that she was wrong or right, I’m just saying we know poor authority power don’t we.

  3. Wow 1:31pm. Pull your ostrich head out of the sand once in a whIle, why don’t you!

  4. This woman is nothing more than an arrogant bitch who thought she could get her way.

  5. Mama cubs get fierce when their babies are threatened.

  6. Oh 427 are u a cop , please stop.

  7. I don’t know if anyone else noticed when the full picture was shown that at least one young woman was crying. The one closest to the fender of their car. I’m sure all of our children–and ourselves when we were children–were at one point totally mortified by a parent. Just imagine how you would have felt if she were your Mom! The Officers did a magnificent job in dealing with a woman who thought she should be above any rules or laws because SHE was IMPORTANT.

  8. Who cares

  9. Justice served !

  10. Obstruction of justice by the former commissioner with a badge and business card. Luckily, the officers showed proper restraint & respect. Unless the driver was a minor, she had no business haranguing the officers.

  11. How would anyone know why the child was crying? Maybe being stopped by the police was scary enough.

  12. Chief Chamberlain isn’t it time you hired officers that look like the population in Tenafly? Just 2 out of 34 police officers are African American and Hispanic. This is not consistent with the population in Tenafly which is roughly 55% Caucasian 25% Asian and 20% Hispanic and African American.

  13. Think the issue is with the civil service requirements, they are not allowed to indicate the race.

    By the way do you know the same ratio’s for Ridgewood, think there might be a mis-match as well.

  14. Race has NOTHING to do with qualifying to be a police officer ANYWHERE in the country. Just because your black, white green or blue makes NO DIFFERENCE and should have no impact in the hiring process. YOUR both racists of the worst kind simply trying for forward your agenda. Playing the race card is long a cowards way around true performance. Man up and you’ll get the job. Otherwise stand aside, we’re not putting up with your bullshit any longer.
