Ruckus II 4th & Jackson

Another report of a large street fight at 4th & Jackson, this time with injuries. Hoboken’s EMS squad was on another call, and HPD had to reach out to Weehawken for medical assistance.

The “Large crowd” is being dispersed.

[quote comment=”32862″]Sorry to disappoint you – i pay for both my houses with my own hard-earned money. Many people who live in cities have houses at the beach for the weekends. I still don’t know how having a summer home makes me a hypocrite or a bad person – but i’m sure you’ll find a way to spin it that way. :roll:[/quote]
No spin, just you were smug when you felt the need to bring up the shore house.

See you next ruckus.

[quote comment=”32841″][quote comment=”32729″]I don’t think that one test can tell an entire picture of anything. Those scores are from 2005-2006 school year. I would imagine they would be different now that there is two high schools, vocational and acedemic. Also, if you look into the sub sets, you can see, not just for the high school, but teh others as well, that the scores reflect the “general polulation”. It doesn’t take into account the special needs children. Some schools, like Wallace have a very large specail needs population because thats where the services are.[/quote] Foster, apparently the statistics shown on the New Jersey Board of Education shocked you –otherwise you wouldn’t be trying to explain and rationalize (take a good look at the school report that is specific to Hoboken High School, not Wallace). I hope you do realize that it’s not just one test, even though it’s arguably the most important test from a college admission standpoint. Take a good look at all the other test results. The score for the last three years are posted. There are no APs scores reported. I also hope that you are right, that this year’s numbers are a miraculous improvement over the past three years.

Matt_72 and SarahC – you to missed the entire point. LynnZe was so busy pointing out that she has no racism in her system and how I am poorly raised because I have no tolerance to the “trash” in the project. However, she was raised by a nanny, points out that she is Hispanic, hbas her one black and one Jewish friend and is getting married to someone half-Polish. She works, is in grad schood, planning a wedding and concludes her thread with the smug statement that the is “already down the shore”. I could care less where she goes, the shore is not nearly as impressive as the east end of Long Island. I would wager a fair amount that it is her parents house and it has nothing to do with the fact that the “trash” in the project are causing many problems in this City. Please feel free to improve your reading comprehension. Finally, I really do not care what either or you think or how you feel about me. You guys are busy commenting bon how I feel when a the trash on Jackson brawls every other day and is diruptive to this town. I on the other hand, will continue to look down on them and be proud of myself for being who I am. I am not ashamed of who I am, I know who I am and I can walk with down the street proudly. Sorry guys, but the fact is, that area… Read more »

Because I made honor roll every semester and didn’t hang at the library – we walked around the mall and smoked cigarettes (inside) and were oh so cool- just like the teens you see on the light rail. They too will grow up. Don’t fault kids who have no role models for making the wrong decissions about taking the SATs or not making the grades – it’s the family, the teachers, and the community who are responsible for the kids’ performance. [/quote] Lynnze, one thing to note, I’m not lumping anyone together –there are kids headed to college because (or in spite) of the system. The problem, and the reason why I raise the school statistics, is mainly to rebut the point that somehow people are blameless for their circumstances. While positive role models make success easier, a lack of a role model doesn’t absolve a kid from deviating from a proven path to success. Sure, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians may also be at fault, but to shoulder no blame for generational poverty (absent physical and mental handicaps)? Of course you hung out in the mall –you made honor roll, and I’m going to bet you weren’t under the 50 percentile mark on your SATs, right? Are you seriously telling me that the kids who couldn’t be bothered to study for the SAT and “waste” a single Saturday of their lives shouldn’t hold some of the blame for their… Read more »
