Hoboken police and fire blotter: 5/1/2011

Hoboken crime, fire & incident update: May 1, 2011

Various Hoboken incidents – Sunday, May 1, 2011. This post may be updated as necessary.

  • All day: Festival of parking idiocy
    As usual when we have a giant city festival – it’s not complete without the parking nonsense. All day, Hoboken Police had to deal with all sorts of nonsense, and ticketed & towed (ka ching) dozens of vehicles. Of course, that doesn’t stop people from parking on the sidewalk anyway, like Hoboken411 reader John noticed…
  • 4:30pm: “Man Down”
    A “local” had a little too much fun at today’s Arts & Music Festival and fell ill directly in front of the stage near 64 Washington Street. Hoboken EMS treated and took to HUMC.
  • 12:00pm: Hoboken Moms, Bitches, Kids, Dogs, Fightin’ & Bitin’
    Two Hoboken women got into an altercation near Maxwell Place uptown. Apparently it all started when one female’s dog “lunged” at another woman’s child. A verbal dispute took place, and the women turned catty. My take of the situation: The Hoboken mom didn’t have control of her child, and the kid probably approached the dog recklessly, startling the child, and making him cry. The Hoboken mom got offended then “blamed” the dog owner – and the dog owner probably said something along the lines of “you better teach kids that people walking dogs doesn’t equate to a “free petting zoo.”

More updates to come…

One day my daughter was walking home from high school when this mutt charged after her, well she drop kicked the mutt right back into its yard. About 1 hour later the asshole owner had the balls to knock on my door to complain about the incident. I laughed at him and told him to go away in a not so nice manner.

Yeah, and where was the parent? Probably being 100% responsible and vigilant, I bet, and not drowning in conversation with someone or typing something away into her iPad while not watching her kid.

Play some numbers :).

It kinda doesn’t make a difference if the mother was watching her child or not. I love dogs. I personally don’t mind if they are off leash (even though I was knocked to the ground myself several years ago by an unleashed dog.) I will get to that in another thread. The point is Hoboken has a leash law. A dog should not be unleashed for safety sake of humans, other dogs and the unleashed dog’s safety. [quote comment=”206455″]Yeah, and where was the parent?

Of course it doesn’t, pawzclawz. Of course it doesn’t. It’s Ok if we breed all we want, and then fail to prevent an injury or worse from happening to our kids because we’re too engrossed in social time over a cup of Starbuck’s. I had the wind knocked out of me by a German Shepherd when I was a kid. The tail-end of my backbone landed right on the sharp edge of a brand-new concrete step. It hurt like hell, but that incident was my fault. I called out to the dog, wanted to play with him, and so he ran at a 60-mph speed it seemed and knocked me down. But I learned a lot from that. The point is everyone needs to pay attention. While we may have a leash law, we should still be vigilant. What if a rabid wild animal (we do have wild animals in town in case you weren’t aware) attacks your kid? Are we gonna blame the animal then, too?[quote comment=”206498″]It kinda doesn’t make a difference if the mother was watching her child or not. I love dogs.

No one knows what happened. It is a very big assumption on your part to say that the parent wasn’t watching her child. The bottom line is the mother should have been watching her child and the dog owner should have had her dog leashed and the dog owner should have kept three eyes on the dog since she insisted on having the dog off leash. I was also knocked down by an unleashed dog. I was walking a dog at the time. We were both knocked to the ground. We were both unharmed luckily. I don’t blame the dog for running to greet me and the dog I was walking at the time. I blame the owner’s for leaving him/her unleashed. The same way I blamed another dog owner for having an unleashed dog and having that dog take off and bite another dog I was walking at the time. The dog I was walking was luckily unharmed in this instance as well. You choose to blame parents behavior due to your very disturbing disdain of children. I was faced with two sets of dog owners who could have cared less about what had just taken place. [quote comment=”206504″]Of course it doesn’t, pawzclawz. Of course it doesn’t.

Pawzclawz, it’s pretty obvious you don’t spend as much time walking around town as I do, and that you probably don’t spend much time with Hoboken children either, so it’s not like you’d understand that over half these parents don’t even pay their kids any mind while they’re playing, running around, riding their bikes, rollerblading, etc. I’m going to agree with you on the fact that the leash law should have been adhered to. However, my feeling on this story is that it’s a 50-50 responsibility issue, an incident could have been prevented, and both participants here were– are– wrong, not just the woman with an unleashed dog. I’ve walked dogs in town, and I always stay on one side of the street to allow parents and their kids to walk by. I can’t tell you how many damn times these parents are fiddling with their gadgets or talking it up with some other parent, and not holding their kids’ hands while walking by, or at the very least telling Hudson and Mitsy to walk on one side of the street so that we can all have room to walk. I’ve told a couple of parents off, actually, because they feel entitled to the sidewalk and allow their toddlers to roam the entire space– of course they’re going to get hurt while under poor supervision. I wasn’t pissed off at the kids, I was pissed off at the parents. That said, don’t assume I don’t know what I’m talking about… Read more »

I’m only able to view Hoboken411 on my home computer. I’m not able to respond to anything for some crazy reason. I was going to blame my cat for messing up my computer. I noticied last night that Seamless Web is the same deal. I couldn’t order from them if I wanted to. It must be something with my computer or it’s operating system. I couldn’t respond last night. I will respond now. You are correct. I don’t spend the time walking around town like you do. I’ve been working in the business world since I was fourteen. I have a full-time M-F 9-5 job. I petsit in the evenings,weekends and holidays. I don’t have the time to focus on people’s behaviors. When I get free time I try and make the most of it. Thank You for agreeing with me that the dog should not have been unleashed and the mother should have been watching her child. I only said about three different times and three different ways. It makes so much more sense the way you say it. I’m sure parents really apreciate being reprimanded by you and will remember what you say and pay attention in the future. I never said that you don’t know what you are talking about. You are the one who with your posts complain about parents and children. It is not an assumption that I’m making solely. We are being led to believe such a thing by your own doing. [quote comment=”206526″]Pawzclawz,… Read more »
