In another news source that was much more comprehensive, it stated that the driver, Mr. Ammar, hasRead More quite the resume....with a recent offense for DWI, Reckless and drug dealing. Sounds like he'll be adding 'vehic man' to it....

The money garnered for the municipality from a traffic summons is miniscule, night radar detailsRead More turn up drunk drivers and cds arrests, if a cop hit a civilian like you describe he would definitely be charged criminally as well as administratively, take your anti cop attitude and misinformed statement and use it as a suppository
Phil Brooks July 24, 2014 at 05:36 pm
Disgusted, Shame on you for making it personal and accusatory. If, as you say, the money fromRead More traffic summonses is minuscule, why do police officers on radar duty routinely do their best to make themselves visible only at the last second? Why do Officer Goodell and thousands of other officers like him put themselves seemingly in harm's way by sitting in a dark car on a dark road waiting for speeders?
disgusted July 25, 2014 at 06:25 am
Phil traffic enforcement is a required part of every patrol cops job like it or not seclusion isRead More part of it don't demonize a cop because a tractor trailer was driving on the shoulder when he shouldn't have been, there a side benefit of mv enforcement is cds, and weapons arrest's bobs statement was made from ignorance, and I take no shame in correcting an inflammatory statement such as the one bob made.
Politics.man July 23, 2014 at 07:51 pm
can someone please answer me why Bergen County has their own police department and sheriff'sRead More department? Its like the only county that has both and has one of the smallest crime rates? this is why Christie has no patience for public employees. All the other hard working cops have to be punished because of this misconduct and profiteering of tax payers.

FACT: According the Bergen Dispatch (which appears to be the voice of the county Dems but is backingRead More Republican Saudino in his feud with Republican County Executive Donovan who's up for re-election), “…the Bergen County Police bought a bearcat (which is like an MRAP) for $750,000 along with a 50 caliber sniper rifle a few years back.” Setting aside the Dispatch's contention that this makes Donovan a hypocrite because she let that purchase go through...and setting aside whether a presumably built-to-order-for-Bergen bearcat is really “like a [built-for-Fallujah] MRAP" -- why does the county need another such armored vehicle if we already have one? Isn’t the whole argument for merging the Bergen County Police into the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office about avoiding such duplication?
JeffO July 24, 2014 at 01:08 pm
Sorry, I missed the point in the Sheriff's statement that the BCPD's "armored truck" hasRead More been retired because of age. Is that the same vehicle (the bearcat) that the Sheriff says in the same paragraph was purchased in 2011?? Why would THAT be retired after little more than three years at most??? Surely it hasn't been getting THAT much use.
James E. McCall July 25, 2014 at 12:47 am
No to the MRAP, we don't need anther armored "military" vehicle, especially the SheriffsRead More Dept., their job is the Jail, Courts,Warrants thruout the county, not on our streets and highways, we don't need a "POLICE STATE" type environment with armored trucks made specifically for "combat". We have POLICE Departments in every town in Bergen County and they are already well trained, armed and protect their residents already, I think that the Sheriffs Dept. is little by little trying to take over every aspect of law enforcement in our County and they are POLITICAL in nature which we DO NOT WANT, HOME RULE IS HOME RULE leave law enforcement to the POLICE not the sheriffs. I am a retired Police Officer and served almost 30 years and never have I seen such blatant disservice to County residents until the last 10 years. Polirical animals do not belong in Law Enforcement- that is a POLICE STATE.

Authorities say it appears the driver was "innattentive" when she caused the accident that killed a motorcyclist from Elmwood Park.
CF July 21, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Someone stopped short on Route 17 in the middle of the day.....that is unheard of. People drivingRead More with their heads up their butt in Bergen County......never. Being tailgated by someone on a cell phone .....never happens in North Jersey. People on motorcycles recklessly driving in between cars in slow (and fast) moving traffic….say it isn’t so. People please, I am surprised more motorcyclists are not killed the way people drive around here. Story says it all, person killed on the bike was tailgating as well, unfortunately they did not have a couple of tons of steel and an airbag to protect them. Watch for the lawsuit, vehicle drivers will be found to be 20% responsible for the death; poor family will get a couple of hundred grand from insurance and no apology. The guys in the Ferraris that killed the motorcyclist by Giant’s stadium got manslaughter charges by the same prosecutors office, so if they had the case, I am sure the drivers would have been charged.
Leaking Ink July 21, 2014 at 08:16 pm
The title of this article blames the Franklin Lakeswoman for killing Motorcyclist. The articleRead More itself states that Authorities have not disclosed which vehicle killed the Motorcyclist. Which is it?
Politics.man July 22, 2014 at 09:40 pm
Barry is right even tho she's wrong for texting. She's only responsible for the car she hit inRead More front of her. It's the drivers responsibility behind her to keep a safe distance

It's been a fun journey with y'all....but I have to agree with Rick at this point and hang it up. ARead More police officer lost his life doing his assigned duty right or wrong and that causes me sorrow. Out of respect for him and his family and colleagues I wish all of you a pleasant good night and peace in your lives.
Kevin July 24, 2014 at 09:43 pm
Since day 1 the lost life, love, confidant, friend, peer, son, brother, uncle etc., has been theRead More issue at hand. If we aren't able to help each other and present as a united front, what good are we.
Phil Brooks July 24, 2014 at 09:56 pm
Agreed, gents. Rick is right. No one should have to bury their kid. I've seen people do it. To sayRead More it's horrible is an understatement. Hopefully, we'll never have to. I wish all of you peace.

Mel Sharples July 25, 2014 at 07:13 am
John, its the truth. We have a large swath of the population that can't or won't work, and we are aRead More nation that demands cheap food. Part of that is labor costs. After all, we're a people that willingly handed its manufacturing industry over to China so we could buy cheap crap at Wal-Mart. Illegals are critical to cheap food, plain and simple. If you traveled out west (argi) or to the flyover states (meatpacking) you'd know this. I love the conspiracies you cite to combat cold, simple economic realities that have been in place since the middle of the 19th century. And good luck sealing the borders when every year we cut the budget, and then put sequestration in place, so that some Canadian senator somehow representing Texas can sell books.
Mel Sharples July 25, 2014 at 07:15 am
Or we can pay $15 for lettuce. You think most people will do that? You think that won'tRead More necessitate a massive boost in the cost of living payments to seniors? Which means higher taxes? You are paying the same either way. Once you learn this the world will make more sense to you.

Uncle Jay, If you read my post, you would have noticed it was addressed to both you as well asRead More Linda. I'd like to think that you would have known what part was directed to you and what was directed to Linda. You made no assertions. You were just too damned lazy to find out where Bergen Ave. and Rt. 17 were while adding your incredulous question marks. So, I'll grow up just as soon as you get off your fat ass and do a Google Maps search which would have taken you maybe ten seconds. Actually, the amazing part is that you didn't even have to get off your fat ass to do that. And you still couldn't do it.
MT July 16, 2014 at 03:25 pm

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.

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.

@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.

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,
