More on the pleasantries of St. Patty’s Day
Below are some additional tidbits from this past weekend’s St. Patrick’s Parade Day in Hoboken:
Inconsiderate slobs are disrespectful
Hoboken resident Kim shares a photo and some details:
“St. Patty’s Day is really out of hand in Hoboken, I had some random guy walk into my apartment looking for a party, I had to actually push him out of my front door.
Also wanted to share with you a little “leftovers” from St Patty’s Day. This is what I see leaving my apartment Sunday afternoon, yay beer, food, and cigs all left in the hallway. The smell was disgusting. Wasn’t Hoboken supposed to start making persons who wanted to have a house party pay for a permit?? Sounds like a good idea to me.”
Residents continue speaking out: “Another Hoboken Disgrace”
Hoboken411 reader “Hobo Ken” had this to say:
“A quick look at police and fire action on parade day clearly shows our town was invaded by barbarians again. Rape, fights, bottle-throwing, public drunkenness and urination, vandalism and other disorderly behavior. Some celebration: not the holy day intended to honor St. Patrick but a hellish day Hoboken residents don’t deserve. It happens every year. Maybe if we pray hard enough, St. Patrick will come back and drive the modern-day snakes out of Hoboken.”
Hoboken St. Patty’s Police Blotter Update
And to elaborate a bit on one of the incidents listed on the Hoboken Police Blotter on March 5, 2011 – was the 10:40pm “fight” near 513 First Street. In fact this was much worse that it sounded.
It was actually a burglary – and apparently a Jersey City man was attempting to break into several apartments on 1st St. – finally succeeding on his third try. The guy was apparently spotted and fled the scene – eventually forcing his way into another apartment at knife-point at 99 Madison St. (The same block Mayor Dawn Zimmer lives on). Cops struggled and eventually arrested the man.
Crazy stuff is bound to happen when most of your police resources are baby-sitting out of control mobs of drunk idiots invited to the Mile Square.
