  • Canned Cops?No, not a ShopRite “Can Can” Sale, but city hall talks of eliminating Hoboken Police Officers.
  • Hoboken has no more Cake Boss? – Judge rules that the “Cake Boss” show cannot be called “Cake Boss” anymore due to copyright stuff. What would you call the Carlo’s Bakery show?

I know these week in review posts are just summaries, but I’m worried about what city hall is doing.

Cutting the front (and only) line of defense in Hoboken is bold. There are just downsides to the whole situation.

I’m sure she’s working with Falco to sterilize the news that comes out of Police HQ, so this may seem to the average person as non-impacting. Just talk to a patrolman six months or a year from now to get the truth of what’s really happening, before you believe a expertly crafted press release from town hall. Just saying!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
