Four men were arrested and charged with murder in the terrifying carjacking of a young New Jersey man in a mall parking lot, authorities said.

Bail was set at $2 million for Karif Ford, 31, Basim Henry, 32, and Kevin Roberts, 33, all of Newark, and Hanif Thompson, 29, of Irvington, in the point-blank shooting of Hoboken resident Dustin Friedland.

The quartet face murder, carjacking, conspiracy and weapons charges. The FBI and federal marshals arrested Henry in a hotel room in eastern Pennsylvania. Thompson was arrested in Irvington, NJ, after a swarm of cops used a battering ram to reach him, according to a report.

Rims stolen on Jefferson Street

Honda Accord has rims stolen on Jefferson

According to a resident, this grey Honda Accord often parks in the area of Jefferson Street between 3rd and 4th Streets.

Well, this morning – the car definitely isn’t going anywhere except via tow truck, as the rims were stolen and the car was left on cinder blocks.

If Frank Sinatra were still alive today – he’d “remix” his famous “New York, New York” song to include the verse “Start spreading the parts, thanks to less cops, I want my rims back, Hobo-ken, New Jerz!”

Horrible: EMT Stabbed

EMT Stabbed in Hoboken by alleged druggie in projects

Some you may have heard about this nutty incident that happened in the projects the other day. EMT volunteer Jaleel Steed was responding to a distress call over in the projects on Marshall Drive, that was apparently bogus. An unidentified man accosted the unknowing humanitarian and demanded some drugs, stabbing her in the stomach.

Luckily the injury was not life-threatening, and she is recovering after being released from the hospital yesterday.

Eyewitness News has the story for you to see here.

Chalk Vandal Children in Hoboken

How Cute. But Hoboken Children are Chalk Vandals!

And so are their oblivious parents!

Happy Monday, Hoboken! To start this glorious week off, is a rant that has been building up since the spring began. Just like everything else “trends” higher until it reaches the point where you need to publicly address the situation. And that situation is the proliferation of CHALK everywhere you look in Hoboken. And it has created an entire breed of Chalk Vandal Children, as I like to call them.

You see, in this instance, a little ADHD chalk energy expended on an ordinary sidewalk may seem relatively harmless – like outside of the uptown Starbucks.

“But it’s better than graffiti!” (Yeah, really?)

People know I’ve pointed out the countless incidents of graffiti here in Hoboken. Yes, it’s an eye sore, and yes, it’s a bit annoying to remove. However, it does not do ANY harm to my person.

Chalk is also an eyesore (sometimes it can make you dizzy or invoke seizures it’s so mind-numbingly bad. Remember your kids are only “cute” to YOU.) But while you can argue “the rain will wash it away,” there are still inappropriate places to allow your kids to go berserk. Like this sitting wall along the Pier at Maxwell Place pictured below.

Hey parents, did you know that people like sitting here? In the photo below – the ENTIRE sitting wall was covered, end to end with chalk. If anyone sat there, their clothing would be soiled by this cheap crap made in China. Not cool at all. Can I walk up to you and smear paint on your ass? No? Well then don’t ruin my favorite seating areas with your wild children!

Teach your kids some respect, and control where they put their stupid chalk ramblings. And maybe stop jamming so much sugar down their throats. I have never seen the “child collective” so outrageously hyperactive and uncontrollable in my life. When we have kids, they will be 100% low carb.
