City Offender Zone – 2/19/2009

2/19/2009:

Two for one special

Hoboken411 reader Brett sent this photo in of a squad car parked not only in front of a hydrant, but in the crosswalk as well.

Readers should keep in mind that each time you see a Hoboken Police car like this, even if the lights aren’t flashing, they still could be responding to a call. Often times they have to respond to a delicate situation with “no lights no sirens.”

I did ask him if the car was responding to a call, but he said no. But hey, I’ve had coffee emergencies too (you know, when you get that caffeine withdrawal?)

RE:18

Don’t assume that because I am actually commending the officers and in some form defending them , that I am an officer. I’m simply a Hoboken citizen with a real concern on those who choose to constantly badger them. And don’t compare your work and that of Officers and Firemen, as you may think “literally & figuratively.” But you are right to say that it is important to point out that it’s not ALL but SOME.
I have been a witness to people being rude towards officers simply because they are having lunch! and then someone takes pictures of their vehicles because they are improperly parked. Don’t get me wrong I’m not talking about the plain cars I’m talking about the POLICE CARS like the one in the pictures 🙂 It would be soo funny if one day they respond to your call and they arrive 30 minutes late because “THEY HAD TO LOOK FOR PARKING” LOL… that’s all I have to say 8)

[quote comment=”140484″]WOW! First question: How many of who have that have recently posted have lived in Hoboken for more than 20 years?? Because if ANY of you have…you would know that HOBOKEN NOW is far better than it was then…I would definitely give credit to the HPD for that. Yes they are not perfect but you guys really need to get a dose of what is outside the lines of HOBOKEN. REALLY! When there is a situation …who do we call?? AHA! yesss…. HPD! and when there is gunfire you run the OTHER way..who runs toward the violence?? YES HPD! SO why the hell not can they stop in and get a coffee… AND HELLO!!! Obviously they need to keep there vehicle near incase they get a call!! Geez… Come on people get a clue!!!

If you think that YOU can do a better job… THEN APPLY!!!

Just because you sprayed air freshener on a turd doesn’t make it perfect.
Abuse of privelege is still abuse, regardless of how much it has improved since the 1970s.

Re 17: I have lived here for over 20 yrs. I disagree with you.

IMHO, the general character of the HPD has neither changed nor improved here, in my tenure.

While crime stats may be different now, that’s perhaps more a reflection of socio-economic changes. But given the current economy, those stats may shift again here….

I might respectfully suggest that you, “Officer blitz,” are missing some of the picture. How about this? Some of us may also do work that takes us directly in “the line of fire,” both literally & figuratively. But we are not HPD officers, often observed driving official vehicles while cell-phoning w/out a blue tooth or the like. And we don’t choose to engage in moving violations/parking illegally when not in the active line of duty, as is often observed with the HPD. We don’t take advantage of a perceived sense of being “above the law,” like some of the HPD, who seem to feel so entitled, as “Hoboken’s Finest.”

Note please I use the word “some,” not “all.”

Whether anyone could do a better job, if they wanted the job, is not the issue here. It’s everyone’s right to oberve and comment regarding the HPD’s performance. Police Officers are public servants.

[quote comment=”137298″][quote comment=”137206″][quote comment=”137181″]What is the point of still posting pics like this? Nothing has been done about this the first 100 times.[/quote]

Creates web hits –> advertising $$$[/quote]

Officer John, the *point* of posting pics like this is to call those who enforce the law out on their bullsh*t. It is NOT okay for officers– anyone, really– to park on a crosswalk. And it is WORSE when these very officers ticket citizens for doing the same.

That said, I’m all for posting pics of offenders– cops or not. It’s the least we can do to fight (or at least embarrass) those who park their precious vehicles, particularly their monstrous SUVs, on the crosswalk.

And don’t get me started on Wildflower’s comment.

When we all really begin to see a difference by doing this, then you can roll your eyes at me. And as far as no one being able to park in the crosswalk, I agree, but as the Bible says “He who is without sin cast the first stone”

Oh wait – i forgot, you’re perfect //eye roll
