  1. There was a baseball game in progress, not too far away from the basketball courts.

    Imagine if one of the 12 years playing in that game was hit by a bullet…?

  2. There’s a word you never want to call these people. It starts with N and ends with R and that word is Neighbor.

  3. Nothing to worry. This is what progress looks like. Urbanization, chaos, crime, low life politics = all good symptoms of city life. You and/or your neighbors voted and will continue voting for this. Enjoy it.

  4. Do they have cameras in that park?

    1. No need, it’s right across from the police station.

    2. The camera footage! Of course! Why hasn’t anyone thought of this!?! I’ll ring up the investigator’s desk post-haste!

  5. Always Paterson, Newark, Camden. Nothing more to say…

    1. Yea well guess what?
      It’s in your backyard now.
      Good luck with that.

  6. What does that have anything to do with it because it’s right across the street from the police department. That means crime never happens right across the street from the police department so if there’s a bank across the street from a police department, they shouldn’t have any kind of surveillance, so stupid remark. So they can go back and look and see exactly what happened. They are proof, they can’t rely on people. They say it was a white guy, meanwhile it could’ve been anyone else.
