Police action at East LA

4/29/2010:

Ole! More HPD Action at East LA

An anonymous Hoboken411 reader caught this big action in front of East LA and said: “Seven HPD cars showed up. 12 officers on scene. With black male in custody. Officers searching under cars and all over sidewalks with flash lights. Another East LA deal gone bad? Action is in front of 520 Washington….”

This town is going down the drain. And they want to cut the Hoboken police staff? Dumb.

Those were my thoughts exactly when I safely got home to my building earlier tonight. I narrowly escaped being mugged (without going into details, sometimes you just sense the possibility it is being strongly considered).

Yes. The muggings have begun. I read a man was mugged at Second and Willow last Sunday. A group of teenagers who punched him in the face, stole his wallet, iPhone and keys. The iPhone was tracked to Jersey City before it was turned off. No arrests yet. When the economy is bad crime goes up.

What do you mean “have begun”? I am sure the economy is going to play it’s part in any increase in crime, but even if you only ever looked at the local news once in a while, you’d know that this is the same kind of thing that has been going on for years in Hoboken.

I also read a comment in Time Magazine the other day that suggested the US is turning into the “third world.” These are the kinds of comments you get from people who have never lived in a bad neighborhood or seen the third world.

You live in an urban area. There’s a higher concentration of people. There’s going to be more crime in such an area. It’s a simple and unavoidable truth.

When I played this video the dogs woke up and started barking viciously. Nice to know I am being protected by pooches with good instincts (and apologies to my neighbors)…

I think I know what your dogs were trying to say.

It’s either “We want steak!!!”

or

“Dammit, that video sucked!!!”

Could you do the town a favor? Tell your Mom to stop taking her “Dates” there.
