Crime wave leaves churches as victims

Hoboken churches robbed of copper and precious metals!

The crime uptick is no real surprise for Hoboken411 readers – as we’ve been telling it like it is since day one. But some people just take longer than others to comprehend what’s going on (and to get out of denial – we need more cops! ehem, Mayor?)

I knew about these church incidents since they happened, but it’s getting tiring to jump on the same old news story week after week!

Luckily CBS 2 News put together a easy to understand clip about the recent crimes happening in our city. Such a shame!

Since when are St. Ann’s and OLG a mile apart? They’re 1,500 feet from each other.

Thanks for posting. I have noticed a rash of vandalism – the likes I have never seen in Hoboken before. It’s as if the broken glass and damages is some kind of statement in that I don’t see it in other towns.

Why does the news make a big deal about this crime wave because churches are involved? Stealing is stealing regardless of who the victims are.

If anything, they have a better chance of being forgiven by God!

Umm, let me see, is it perhaps because there’s an obvious pattern involved…copper, churches, memorials, etc.? They’re more apt to cover a news story that shows these patterns then the random isolated event.

But you so f’in quick to make a snap judgement you obviously missed that.[quote comment=”214733″]Why does the news make a big deal about this crime wave because churches are involved?

In regard to the above, CBS News has been reporting the increased crime in Hoboken and the Church being a part of it. We all should be thankful for their coverage because City Hall doesn’t seem to be listening.[quote comment=”214733″]Why does the news make a big deal about this crime wave because churches are involved?

Watching the local news last night it looks as if St.Anne’s was also robbed of it’s copper draining/gutters. When the maintenance man heard of the OLG robbery, he surveyed the building, and found theirs was missing too.
