Elks club mayhem again!

From a reader:

“Just wanted to let you know, at about 1 am, Hoboken PD got called to 10th and Washington for a reported street fight with knives.

3 people received stab wounds (including one with knife wounds to the face), but the actors had fled.

By 1:30 am (a few minutes ago), they had determined that the disturbance had originated from an event at the Elks Club, and Hoboken PD is shutting the event down”

[quote comment=”5785″]Hoboken was a pionner in video camera surveillance.
The first documented instance of police video surveillancee was in Hoboken in 1966. After five years, the system was credited with only two arrests and was dismantled.

Video Cameras have now proven to be an effective crime deterrent in many cities. Since Hoboken is on a spending spree how about a few more Video Cameras Mayor Roberts?[/quote]

meh, the technology has been around for sometime now- and they don’t us it!

[quote comment=”5752″]You know, I’m actually kind of surprised that a town like Hoboken (big tax revs, etc.) hasn’t wired itself with cameras all over the place. [/quote]

Funny you should mention that. Buried deep in an article in the Hoboken Reporter on August 20, 2006 is this quote:
“A company called PackeTalk has been contracted to place cameras around Hoboken, used primarily by the police.”

Basically, this is a wireless network that sends the video feed to a server where authorized users can securely log in and view the stream.

Here’s the company that does it. They’re out of NYC:

Here’s the Reporter article that mentions it. It is a VERY good article about the sorry state of Civil Defense and anti-terror preparedness in Hoboken:

Interesting stuff indeed.

Yeah, I hear you emarche, but the point I was trying to make was that there are still rements of Hoboken’s past. This is mearly the next generation of the old school gangbangers that survived in town thus far. Despite the turnaround there is still an element in town so I don’t find it suprising at all.

I know exactly what it was like twenty years – I’m talking about today. The Bloods in Hoboken today is funny to me because when you say “Bloods” I don’t think “Yuppies with strollers”. So yes, I guess I do find it suprising in light of the miraculous turnaround Hoboken has experienced in the last 10-15 years.
