Hoboken Police Blotter: St. Patty’s Parade
Hoboken St. Patrick’s Parade moved to Wednesday
… After Howard Stern reads Hoboken411 Police Blotter
Hoboken411 simply did his job reporting on the 2011 Hoboken St. Patrick’s Parade. You have your usual photo galleries of the parade and the revelers, along with a live chat between residents – and an ongoing live police blotter of the days incidents.
Well, today – Howard Stern spent some time reading the Hoboken411 Police Blotter. Rattling off a few key points.
Shortly thereafter – the City of Hoboken announced that the parade will be moved to Wednesday next year – due to the violent nature of the day’s incidents. Funny how their tune changes – just two days after saying well how things went – and we were on a road to improvement.
By The Numbers: Parade Day Violence, so far…
- 30 Arrests
- 16 Simple Assaults
- 6 Aggravated Assaults
- 4 Thefts
- 2 Sexual Assaults
- 1 Robbery
This year it wasn’t just drunken idiots walking around with open containers, peeing and puking in public.
Sources in the HPD report more violence, anger and disrespect for police authority in Hoboken this year. Sources say the sexual assaults reportedly involved multiple males on single females, including a bizarre incident at the Columbian Towers senior citizens building. These are just the sexual assaults that have been reported. One police officer was nearly stabbed in the line of duty by an angry drunk wielding a knife. That guy’s lucky he didn’t wake up in the hospital with a gunshot wound.
Meanwhile, Mayor Dawn Zimmer was seen on Channel 7 Sunday morning
spinning bragging that all went well in Hoboken on Parade Day without major incidents. Really Mayor?
See the list below – remember – this is just a partial compilation of what Hoboken411 personally documented. It’s likely around 40% of the actual incidents.
