Reader Mail: Filing a complaint?

10/22/2009:

A Hoboken411 reader who requested anonymity wonders what you’d do about a Hoboken Police car and a crosswalk incident. Would you let it go?

HPD nearly runs us over!

“My wife was walking with our one year old (in a stroller) this morning at 8:30AM. She was in the crosswalk and there was a police car approaching. There was more than enough time for him to stop, but he nearly ran them both over. He did not have his lights on. I’m sure people will complain that she did something wrong, but I believe she had the right of way.

My question is this: Do I make a complaint to the police department? (She got his license plate number.) I feel that if I give my name and address, I may be subject to some type of police harassment in the future. What would you suggest? Just let it go or report it?”

While your search for facts is laudable, your stance seems one sided.

SEEMS one sided?

Antinucci seems to be channeling Groucho Marx: “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?”

Darn. I thought “seems” was the secret word.

We’re missing info here.

Regardless, fat chance. My friend constantly harps about cops skipping STOP signs to the police department, to the mayor, to a certain candidate for mayor and nothing has changed. Most cops have us all by the nut sacks and they have no intention of following the very rules that they enforce to keep our residents safe.

Are you kidding me? Is this the type of intellectual commentary we can expect from Antinucci? This is the kind of thing you’d hear from a second-grader (although that might be insulting to second-graders) in the school yard…!
