Hoboken Police Blotter: St. Patty’s Parade

3/8/2011 Update:

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.

I guess Chase22 has no idea that while Hoboken is a city with working people in it, that people still play on the weekends (unless they blindly devote their existences to a job that doesn’t do anything for them). We DO have avenues upon avenues of bars and restaurants, plus a waterfront that’s only partially disintegrating into the river which offers a fabulous view of the city.

Jeez, wake up.

Fantastic reporting job as usual H411! and thanks to Howard Stern for getting a hold of Saturday’s debauchery.

Ditto. Impressive to hear that 411’s incredible reporting job led to a discussion by Howard Stern! The list of all these incidents in such close succession (minute after minute sometimes) is what got my attention the most.[quote comment=”204256″]Fantastic reporting job as usual H411! and thanks to Howard Stern for getting a hold of Saturday’s debauchery.[/quote]

At last we see the true face of the parade defenders. One would think all the “responsible” partiers who supposedly only go to house parties and clean up after themselves meticulously would applaud the moving of the parade, because if all your “small percentage” of bad apples are dissuaded from coming to the city, you can have your non-disruptive fun in peace. Instead, there are threats of worse behavior next year.

If you don’t think there will be less of a turnout next year, you are deluding yourself. Without the parade, there are no extra trains and buses into the city. There are no city officials turning a blind eye to bar overcrowding and early openings. There are no police stretched too thin trying to guard the entire parade route. There are more responsible people staying in town and reporting disturbances.

And to the logician who said that the rapes weren’t a factor: There were 3 rapes in the entirety of last year in Hoboken. There were two over Fake St. Patrick’s Day weekend. If you can’t see the problem, there’s nothing anyone can do to help you.

Wow your logic is so eschewed with the rape statistic it’s not even funny…. Oh wait yes it is.

Essential you are saying that fake St Patty’s Day Parade led to the 2 rapes; wait sorry the 1 actual rape that Hoboken411 reported was filed by police, because there was a Parade that brought more people to Hoboken which led to drinking, which caused people to get drunk and raped 1 person. That is like saying, a priest in Hoboken raped someone on Sunday, therefore you should change the day which people attend church and to avoid priests because they cause rapes to occur on Sundays.

So with that said the “logician who said that rapes weren’t a factor” has proven that in fact there is NO correlation with the number of rape(s) occurring during fake St Patty’s Day than any one other single day of the year!

Good try though…[quote comment=”204233″]At last we see the true face of the parade defenders.

Hmmm yeah your right YOU don’t know what correlation means, so here is the definition or did Webster get it wrong?!?

Correlation –noun
1. mutual relation of two or more things, parts, etc.
2. the act of correlating or state of being correlated.
3. Statistics . the degree to which two or more attributes or measurements on the same group of elements show a tendency to vary together.
4.Physiology . the interdependence or reciprocal relations of organs or functions.
5. Geology . the demonstrable equivalence, in age or lithology, of two or more stratigraphic units, as formations or members of such.

I’m going to start off by saying that I’m not going to waste any more time with you after this (barring some criteria at the end). You have shown that you are not just ignorant, but proudly ignorant, so there’s nothing for me to be gained by any further interaction with you. I’m happy letting the record speak for itself.

See that third entry in the definition? Statistics? That is what we are talking about here. It may surprise you to know that there is an entire field of mathematics based about it, and “correlation” has a much larger technical definition that presented in whatever online dictionary you used. There is actual math that can be done to prove my point about the correlation of the increase in rapes and Fake St. Patrick’s Day to a statistically significant degree. This is a fact.

Now, unless you are willing to go and do your own analysis to show that there is no statistically significant correlation so I can show you where you made your mistakes, I’m done talking to you. And for anyone knowledgeable on the subject, I’m sorry to dumb it down so much, but look at my subject.

Your stats are flawed. Toyse stats and correlations you need facts and you have zero at this time. Tjhese are Alleged rapes that are being used as a catlyst for anti Hoboken St Pattys day. Nothing has been proven yet.

PS. I am not condoning or trying to make light of a serious serious crime, that if found true should be punishable by the severist of penalties.[quote comment=”204308″]I’m going to start off by saying that I’m not going to waste any more time with you after this (barring some criteria at the end).

This guy is an idiot! It was only one rape, & no one is making it seem like a joke because it’s not, but 1 rape is no argument to use to move or cancel a Parade. I’m sure if we went through years of reported rapes and found that lets say in 82, 94, 07 that a rape was reported on Christmas day and found that only 1 rape was reported on the day of the Parade he would argue well that is just a “coincidence” that those rapes happened to fall on Christmas day.

This person is narrowed minded and wants to use the 1 rape as reason for why the tradition of Hoboken celebrating St Patty’s Day the first Saturday of every March should be moved to the week day.

They should put a poll up and ask people “Why do you come to Hoboken to celebrate St Patty’s Day?” with 3 choices.
1. To watch the Parade
2. To watch the Parade and go to bars and/or house parties
3. To go to house parties and/or bars
I’m sure the results would be in the following order 3,2,1 (Oh they would have to make sure that the person could only vote once, I’m sure a select few would be voting for 1 until they break their mouse)

My statistics are not flawed, and we have all the facts we need. The only thing that needs to be finalized is how many of the cases are prosecuted. The fact that they occurred during the “harmless” Fake St. Patrick’s Day is a matter of record. There is more than ample evidence to prove a significant statistical correlation between the frequency of sexual assault allegations and the 2011 Fake St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

If you are willing to provide your math as to why there is not a correlation, I am more than happy to point out where they fail as well. At least you realize the seriousness of the crime, as opposed to those parade supporters blaming the victims and minimizing the crime because they want to keep their day of mayhem.[quote comment=”204322″]Your stats are flawed.

Actually there’s not, because in statistics you need a minimum sample size to even begin to prove correlation. 1 is nowhere near a viable correlation-proving standard. Try running a regression on data of 1. You can’t even DRAW a line, because you don’t have two separate points.[quote comment=”204323″]My statistics are not flawed, and we have all the facts we need.

No ignorance is what you have abundance of my friend, this shows on how you process and interpret information. This is very apparent as how you were given a definition of the word and jumped to the 3rd meaning of the word which takes the first 2 meanings and begins to break it down into different fields to which the definition can be applied too. But your ignorance clouded your mind and tried to “dumb it down for everyone else.

And I fully expect you not to get the point since you kept clearly missing the point I was making that 1, yes 1, raped happened on March 5th, and all those narrow minded, ignorant idiots have now made feeble minded idiots think there is a correlation with Fake St Patty’s Day Parade and rapes.

So yes let the record speak for itself that you are a narrow minded idiot who is, just guessing by the “bornandpraised” name you chose, a bible beater who sits around all day and judges others, when your bible clearly says thou shall not judge.

According to Hoboken’s City Code 68-4 A.4 “No licensee shall serve, deliver or allow, permit or refer the sale, service or delivery of any alcoholic beverages or allow or permit the consumption of any alcoholic beverage on the licensed premises on: Saturday, between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., and on all other days, between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.”

Therefore there is nothing to stop any bar from opening up at 9AM on Saturday March 3rd 2012 and advertising for such an event. Changing the date of the parade is not going to change that. If the goal is to make the St. Patty’s Parade a more family friendly event then sure, having a midweek parade is great. If you think moving the parade is going to have any discernable change in the number of drunks on the first Saturday in March, I think you are wrong. Even if the city doesn’t advertise the event nowadays with the amount of connectivity there is with social media (facebook, twitter, etc…) its fairly easy to organize thousands of people to come to Hoboken for fake St. Patty’s minus the parade.
