Afternoon Assaults in Hoboken, NJ

People of all ages get beat up in Hoboken

Overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police & Fire Action channel moments ago – two different assaults took place uptown.

Parking regulations drive people mad
It was reported that a Hoboken Parking Utility employee said he was allegedly assaulted near 10th and Willow… Apparently the actor had a car with Louisiana plates. I guess they can’t tolerate the draconian parking laws we have here in Hoboken down south.

I’ll get you after school!
Also overheard was a kid got roughed up as school let out at Wallace Primary – and was assaulted by a gang of other kids.

So much hate and violence these days – what’s up with that?

It did occur to me that this town is particularly hostile to out of state vehicle owners. It is well known that town try to raise funds from out of towners but jeeze what about business development as well as warmth to outsiders. Who can not feel sorry for the handicapped seniors who have to come to court to discover that the handicapped signs are personalized in Hoboken. And what about those boots and notices pasted on cars because it is not clear to out of towners that the green and reverse green signs have different meanings. Can’t they give an out of townie a warning? How about instean of zero tolerance at the gateway we express care in parking?

Years ago, before all the yuppies, people got beatup in Hoboken all the time. Usually for something stupid like hitting on someone’s girlfriend or spreading a rumor, or even saying something true about someone. Some people even got their legs broken. All this by young teens.

I sometimes think that we (humans) are inherently more violent than not. It’s very sad.

Years ago we had monitors and the playground and surrounding area was supervised.
Make an appointment with the Superintendant, attend the Board Meeting Tonight and
speak up, or at least write a letter with the time and the description of what you saw.
There is a no toleration bullying policy in place but there is presently no enforcement!
Call the Police and report it, and I am sure a squad car will be circling the block soon.
Thanks for keeping our children safe, especially the littlest ones….
