Vandalism set to increase in Hoboken?

9/13/2010:

Will cop cuts cause petty crime to rise?

In a democratic society like ours, it’s practically impossible to prevent all crimes. Generally, you expect citizens to be respectful of other people’s property, and follow the law. Police forces are necessary to maintain order when things get out of control, and to hopefully act as some kind of deterrent for those walking the fence on potential nefarious activities.

But I recalled seeing this sign at Church Square Park bathroom that read: “Due to excessive vandalism, rest rooms will be opened from 8am – 4pm.” This was installed when the police force in Hoboken was at full force.

Hard enough back then

Do you think with less cops patrolling the streets – or just relegated to emergency situations – that more destructive crimes like vandalism, car theft, and assault will increase? If they couldn’t prevent it in the past, you think it’s going to get any easier with less of a police presence?

And for those who insist Hoboken has too many police officers – the Policeman’s Benevolent Association urges you to read their analysis of the recent audit. They believe that the state’s audit of the Hoboken Police Force was riddled with inaccurate data – and may negatively effect resident safety in the future.

There has to be a better way!

Rise talks about police propaganda but is afraid to walk the trenches! Too busy claiming he is an ace prosecutor yet won’t speak of any cases he worked on!

Vandalism has been on the rise in Hoboken for the last few years…primarily caused by drunk yuppie out of towner’s that come into town to drink on weeknights and weekends then feel obligated to piss all over peoples gates and front doors or in their hallways. Sometimes they throw in the occasional trash can tossing onto parked cars and the block long car mirror kicking spree. Yet they would not do this in their town or to their parents property.

The remainder of the vandalism stems from the majority of out of town students that Hoboken ships in daily to attend Hoboken schools that are too violent and dangerous to attend schools their own city. So Hoboken gets the trash from Jersey City, Union City, WNY, and NB.
