Yet another anonymous Hoboken411 reader irritated with the supposed abuse of civic jobs…

“Could not help but take this picture. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander? (Please do not publish my name if you use this picture. You know how things work in this town.)”

Last night I’m walking down Newark and there is a woman walking a dog near NAPA on the other side of the street by me is HPD. HPD and woman are yelling across street to each other, cars are backed up behind HPD. HPD then Uturns in middle of Newark to talk to woman but doesnt make a full Uturn so half the car is sticking out in the street for drivers to go around.

Same HPD is then seen at Dunkin Donuts about a 1/2 hour later and is HUGE. I’m not even sure how this guy got in and out of the squad car good thing he was getting more donuts!

Seriously, I agree that an abnormal amount of abuse of power goes on in this town, but taking pictures of every single illegally parked vehicle is kinda overkill, doncha think?

If driver present, it’s not parking.

It’s not Bosworth. Bosworth is 311 Willow. This is more like 305 +/-2.

Looking at Google earth, there is a car parked in the exact same location.
