1/18/2009:

What are they putting in the drinks?

So many “fun” incidents taking place all over Hoboken tonight!

I’ve been wrapped up doing other things – but here’s what I overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel tonight…

  • Large street fight in the projects (311 Harrison). Several seperate incidents.
  • Drunk fight over near 7 Star Pizza.
  • Man assaulted by three black men (3rd and Park).
  • Woman passed out at Madison Bar & Grill
  • Large street fight uptown (14th and Washington) – two white males believed to be “out of towners.”
  • A couple taxi disputes (including skipping fares).
  • Bahama Mamas – threats being made. Hispanic male, unsure of weapon.
  • Some other kind of drunk assault near Mulligans.

And expect more as the bars let out soon!!

Now if the cops didn’t have to respond to those calls they can maybe look after the park after dark. But let’s focus on the basketball court. Maybe if we turn that into an outdoor tiki bar.[/quote]

I don’t know where you are reading that 6 of the 8 are bar related.

Where you may see a fight between two (or more) drunk people – that is between them and rarely would you see someone not involved get seriously injured o or attacked for any reason. When you have people lingering in a dimly lit park to rob and assault people without being PROVOKEN, that is a completely different story.[/quote]
read the bullet points. Drunks that cause trouble are criminals. If cops don’t have to respond to these morons they can allocate more cops to deal with the projects. Btw, when these drunks get into a car and drive home and hits someone is that PROVOKED?[/quote]

For the taxes we pay, the town should be able to handle both problems adequately. But you’re right – our cops certainly do have their hands full: http://hoboken411.com/archives/8862

that makes no sense at all. put better lighting and maybe encourage some police activity in the area and you’d see a drop in crime.[/quote]

You say it offers kids something to do besides getting them into trouble but it seems that is EXACTLY what they are doing… getting into trouble.[/quote]

is it a fact that the kids playing basketball are the ones causing trouble? I’ve never had any issues walking by the courts, so I guess I just don’t see it.

isn’t there a curfew in this town? and what are the projects rats doing at CSP after dark anyway? they are not supposed to be in that part of town. they should be escorted to the river and sent for a swim.
