Aaaand just so we're clear regarding the NJ motor vehicle code N.J.S.A Title 39 Chapter 1 Section 1Read More lists the following: "Driver" means the rider or driver of a horse, bicycle or motorcycle or the driver or operator of a motor vehicle, unless otherwise specified. and furthermore regarding chapter 4 of the above title governing moving violations: 39:4-1. The provisions of this chapter applicable to the drivers of vehicles on the highways shall also apply to the drivers of all vehicles owned or operated by this State, the United States, any territorial or Federal district, any other State or any county, municipality or any other political subdivision thereof, subject to such specific exceptions as are set forth in this chapter. The provisions of this chapter shall apply to the owners and drivers of vehicles on highways, roadways, driveways, parking areas or upon any grounds owned and maintained by the State of New Jersey, or any State department or agency, the counties, the municipalities and the school district boards of education of this State. This chapter shall not apply to persons, teams, motor vehicles and other equipment while actually engaged in work on the surface of a highway, but shall apply to such persons and vehicles when traveling to or from the work. But thanks for comin out.

I have no doubts at all that the NJ State Police are in fact looking out for the good of all of ourRead More citizens and their intentions are good and just. However, All Law enforcement authorities at every level of government are extremely prejudiced in their enforcements of the laws. They routinely go out of their way to enforce driving laws at this type of concert event, yet other concerts and events that are attended by mostly rich and wealthy people are ignored entirely. When is the last time anyone saw a check point at a Country Club? When is the last time anyone has seen a check point at any political convention? While I have on complaints about checkpoints __ My time has Value also. If I want a police motor vehicle accident report I am charged for their time to produce the report. When I am delayed in a checkpoint for 15 minutes I also want to be Compensated for my time. Our US Constitution is clear __ The government must pay us Just Compensation when the take our property from us __ and to me my time is very valuable property to me and we are all deserving of compensation when the police take our time away from us with delays at checkpoints.

Everyone hates the inconvenience of the traffic stop, but when it stops that one drunk from drivingRead More a car and killing someone in your family, isn't it worth it? If only there had been a traffic stop the Christmas Eve that the drunk hit my cousin head on and killed her and her 4 year old, we would have been enjoying he holidays instead of spending them in a funeral home! Some of you have to stop seeing laws as merely suggestions and start abiding by them!

Public hanging, string them all up for all to see, maybe if we did this more of these criminalsRead More would think twice about there actions and the rest of us can go on without worry and live our lives in peace. Or banish them to an an island in the Pacific and let them survive out there!

Yes, makemyday, those teens that enter unaccompanied will be easy recruits for this gang (if theyRead More aren't already members).
Mel Sharples July 19, 2014 at 07:22 am
Or those kids will pick the lettuce and grapes for minimal expense, so that you can buy cheapRead More produce. Because god knows Americans won't. They'll also likely bankroll the government programs that keep old people chugging along, in the form of sales taxes. Those are FAR more likely outcomes than them joining the same gangs they left their countries to get away from. But never let logic get in the way of a good rant, because 'Murka#1.
John July 19, 2014 at 04:10 pm
Mel that's an absolutely crock of shit. Barry told them come on and they came. You gotta stop takingRead More the Libbey High road every time you see some one crossing our boarder illegally. We are a sovereign nation of laws and rules and our boarders deserve to be respected and should be protected.

The number of scam calls we ignore daily is not only annoying but frustrating as well. The FCC andRead More no call list is a joke.

YOU BETTER BELIEVE THE NO CALL LIST IS A JOKE. I'VE REGISTERED ON LINE, CALLED THE REGISTRY NUMBERRead More AND NOW I GET MORE THAN I EVER DID!!!
Juliana Brady July 20, 2014 at 10:04 am
I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't realize this is a scam. Uncle Same will threaten you alright,Read More but they'll do it by jamming up your mailbox with notifications that you owe them that 9 cent's and with interest and penalties you can be sure it will be more like $10.00 in the end if you don't pay it.
Gretchen July 16, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Were the clients involved? I ask for help on preparing taxes because I'm not an expert, so I'm notRead More likely to go through through the filing with a fine-tooth comb to see if there is anything suspicious.

What does that mean? Convicted of trying to molest his 6 year old daughter? He's been convicted, soRead More it was more than trying. He's probably in Newark somewhere just fitting into the masses of people living there.
gregory l. mitchell July 14, 2014 at 05:26 pm
This guy really is a knucklehead!What kind of a hitman has to have the gun given to him for theRead More job?That's like hiring a truck driver who doesn't know how to back up!!Shouldn't this have told the Greek that this and only $20K for a murder,that he wasn't getting a "Quality Job"?Fortunately the guy wasn't able to pull it off and "Uncle Gus" is still able to "EAT HEAVY".He'll be out again in 8.5 yrs-NOT LONG ENUFF!!!! Respectfully, Gregory L.Mitchell,West Caldwell
JDBlackhawk July 15, 2014 at 08:50 am
if he wanted to kill him, he could have just fed him some of that nice rich diner food, I guess heRead More didn't want to torture him with a slow death though, just kill him. But seriously, 10 years for plotting (premeditated) attempted murder? If this happened in Greece, they'd probably hang him.
Pad July 15, 2014 at 02:46 pm
Greed, All for greed. This man had nothing and he planned to kill someone who gave it all to him.Read More This man deserves 25 years in jail. To betray your family like that is disgusting.

The shooter was an ex-con. He HATED police. For some reason, he has had enough. Maybe he was drunkRead More or stoned & didn't want to go back to jail. So he grabs a security guards gun & waits for the police to arrive & opens up on them. After killing the first cop the next two cops to arrive on the scene open up on him & kill him. Police cars need bullet proof glass & steel plates put in the doors. The results from his blood test should be coming out any day now.

If you look at the people who frequent Walmart, you get a clear, pathetic, pitiful, picture of theRead More core of the problem. Severely undereducated, easily brainwash-able, very apparent lack of self value. Perfect target voter for the republiscams. Without these types, the right wingers might eke out 10 pr 20% of the vote every election. Its no wonder why the red states are the poorest educated in the country.
B July 14, 2014 at 08:32 am
@MaryLynn if Walmart is such a great company, why can't THEY help their employees? I understand ifRead More there is a divorce or death etc.....but for Christmas?? Give your employees a bonus free turkey! While the Walmart CEO is being brought his dinner prepared by his staffed cook. He should maybe think of the little people who got him to where he is.
Ken Briggs July 14, 2014 at 03:00 pm
good luck , with all the court stuff maybe you can get some money in four / five years from now .Read More but walmart is a cheap place to work for .

Oh I'm sure someone was speeding or fleeing the police, my money's on the Nissan that it was stolen.

A subject in Jersey City stabbed a security guard and took the guard's handgun. When a two manRead More police car responded the subject shot and killed the officer on the passenger side and was then shot and killed by the police. The subject had claimed earlier that he would be famous. Of course the media has published his name and given him his 2 seconds of fame. So the copycats will keep on copying.
jersey girl July 21, 2014 at 01:15 pm
If the woman owns a gun legally she should know the laws period. Laws are the laws if we like themRead More or not. I hope they cut her a break for being honest but it is her responsibility to know the laws. Ignorance of Law is no defense in the United States.
William July 21, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Thank You jersey girl. When a person legally Buys a Gun a Responsibility and Accountability comesRead More along with it. Just as with a Drivers Lic. Even tho one is a Right and one is a Privilege. Ignorance is not Bliss. Plain and simple she broke New Jersey Law, No matter the excuse The court will decide not The Public Court of Opinions, Just because in Penn. one can walk in Buy a Gun and the law says you have a right to Carry, does not give you the same rights in any other states. And THUDNJ You really think The Federal GOV. would do a better job . IRS-VA- CIA -FBI Yea Right. And to repeat my Self To Obtain a New Jersey Firearm Purchasing Permit, Be it Pistol or Shotgun. It goes threw back Ground checks From Local Police , State Police and Federal ( FBI ) checks, So in essence She or any one from out of State should have more rights the a New Jersey Citizen. And THUDNJ it is The Federal Gov, Us Senators and Congress that are coming up with these screwy laws, So every time some one is found with a Loaded gun in their car from out of State or MEXICO where they bought it Legally Most with no Background Checks or Even a Drivers LIC. Where A Drivers LIC. will be given to the Illegals if obamanation has his way they just have to say I did not know it was Illegal I am Sorry, This whole story can go on and on with Opinions when IT IS THE LAW of New Jersey she Broke,
gregory l. mitchell July 14, 2014 at 04:40 pm
What a damn shame,an employee out doing his job,WARNING LIGHTS ON,and gets driven into by someRead More kid.Most likely with not much experience handling his vehicle and/or in addition not paying attention. Note they're not releasing the name of the driver of the truck. Why?Isn't he part of the case?Wonder if that driver is here legally,as so many are not. Respectfully, Gregory L. Mitchell,W.Caldwell

@F-TR - well, at least it's six of one and a half of dozen of the other even though the AmericanRead More Water Christie-style pit bull bellowing water tower will offend us 24/365 – personally, if I had to pay American Water for their service, I would enclose one canned sardine in every payment envelope [tried to use your reply button to no avail - that's a 50/50 option also]
Juliana Brady July 4, 2014 at 01:22 pm
Weekender's don't pay attention to such important things like how to get out of a rip current. EvenRead More I a strong swimmer with certifications had trouble getting out of a couple of them. I also fully knew how to handle myself and it's still a killer for those who come down here to party and then think they are jumping into a pool in the backyard. Never turn your back to the Ocean, give it the respect it deserves, and don't go in just to cool off thinking it's just a "rip current" no biggie! The Ocean will take you down in a flash.

Within 24 hours Christie will have a "photo opp" at Sleaze-side to announce more money forRead More boardwalk businesses, but none for homeowners still waiting 20 months after Supertstorm Sandy.

In reference to the Intoxicated man in Morristown, NJ, he is lucky that he was not in Chicago,Read More Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Charlotte, NC or Detroit. If he had been in any of those cities and a few others not named here, he would have been killed by the police. Congratulations go to the Morristown Police Department for being cool, professinal and showing exemplary restraint.
