Rules don’t apply to everyone

6/19/2009:

Hoboken411 reader “Freewheelin” felt the need to share this “typical Hoboken story” with us today:

No turn on red (unless you know the cop)

hoboken-police-doing-favors.jpg“Typical Hoboken story.

A big black SUV is all the way past the crosswalk on 1st Street by City Hall and Washington. Cop pulls up right behind him as he ignores the no turn on red sign and turns right onto Washington. Cop puts on his lights and siren and pulls the SUV over in front of City Hall.

Cop gets out of his car and walks over to the SUV. Recognizes the driver. “Hey, how ya doin’?!” says the cop. Both flash big smiles and laugh. Cop walks back to his car and drives away.

In Hoboken, it’s all about who you know.

You have every right to disagree with Hoboken_South and every right to express that disagreement, but this garbage about this person being a “paid blogger”, etc is just dumb from the point of view of someone who has been watching this discourse over the past few days.

I have news for you… there are a LOT of people in Hoboken who think like Hoboken_South. Am I one of them? Obviously not. But that doesn’t mean I have the right to get all lynch mob and try to chase them off the board.

Rise to the occasion and debate the issues. Simply dismissing and harassing a poster like this just plays into the “Yuppie know-it-all New Yorker outsider” stereotype that many Hobokenites have about people who post here.

Chill out. This person is for real. Not the Mayor’s blogger. Not a shill. Just a person with a different view, which is a lot more interesting than a monolithic community.

Why are you responding to this person? It is obvious this is either a paid blogger, city worker or member of the inside corrupt clique. This is one of those NEW screen names you just mentioned on another thread. They will post 1 or 2 times, maybe more & then disappear for weeks/months while they post under their other aliases.[/quote]

If I do not respond to every topic at all hours of the day Matt is because I have a life. Paid Blogger. Are you kidding. You post more than anyone here. Are you on a comission? You talk more smack than anyone on this site. Maybe, no one should respond to you. Dolt!
