  2. Well then , charge him , do a trial and convict ,sentenced to jail , but don’t pull the innocent party into the case . As we all know , with this asinine governor of Joisey and the idiotic law passed of releasing scum convicts back out on the street and state law the convict will mostly likely go after the guy agsin that reported him . It could have been any of us innocent now reading the story . Keep these dirtbags in jail for a very long time once they are caught . ! 👏👍🤣😜

  3. Why would a person driving safely accuse this person of the shooting act IF. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN?? Stop aiding & abetting the criminal. Are you waiting till he KILLS someone???

  4. it’s amazing that the police are losing so much power. The police can’t even keep up with the new laws because of changing so fast. Way different kind of police work today.

  5. Road rage incidents are getting so so bad. Speeding cars on highways doing 90 in the slow lanes. Nuts driving and cutting off other drivers. I had an incident in Lodi , New Jersey where a crazy man at the light on Kipp Street or Avenue at the traffic light . It was road rage and his bumper sticker was some sick remark . I actually was afraid he might pull a gun or knife on me in my Suv. While I was behind him waiting fir him to go when the light turned green. I actually called the police and hoping they would come and nobody came to check this crazy person out. I am an older person and handicap. Which I told the police who never showed up.
