The Record [Hackensack, NJ], by Hannan Adely

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/5/2013 5:42:16 PM

Paramus – A group of unruly males taunted and hurled obscenities at police during a motor-vehicle stop early Saturday, in an incident that ended with two officers and one teenager in the hospital, according to borough police. Paramus Police Officer Anthony Liggio had stopped a motor vehicle on Route 4 east, backed up by Officer Joseph Cullen, just before 2:30 a.m. A group of about 10 males walking on the road approached the officers and began to yell and scream insults and obscenities at them, police said. The officers told the group to move on but they refused to leave

Urban youth are expected to be feral among themselves, but when they start attacking police officers it´s time to set up zones where police won´t have to go if they don´t want to. Wasn´t there some kind of book or movie about something like "no fire zones" where police didn´t bother to go no matter what was going on?

Society has been on a downward course since the Vietnam era. Lots of factors contribute, but the overriding one, I believe, is ACLU activism and the accompanying claims of police brutality. If I would have antagonized a cop when I was a teenager, he would have found me guilty of acting stupid in public and administered punishment on the spot. I would have been punished with a fat lip. Wouldn´t have tied up a court room, wouldn´t have cost the taxpayers a dime, would have used only a couple of minutes of the cop´s time and would have been reinforced my my father if he learned of it. Seems to me that that was a better system.

A lot of cops, like about 1/3 belong to unions and among that number a goodly number of them and their organizations support policies that are anathema to freedom. Like seizure of a person´s cash when in the opinion of the cops that cash MIGHT be used for a drug transaction. And local cops get to share in the proceeds of hard asset seizures as well. Not to mention that the cops would just as soon have nobody armed but themselves. Plus the DOJ gives out all kinds of grants for special "law enforcement" projects and goodies. And don´t even get me started on entrapment and sting operations. You will probably find a bunch of Obama voters populating the thin blue line. A lot of cops come from the same socioeconomic strata that produces most criminals, they just managed to veer a couple of degrees off the course of lawlessness.

Sorry #6 but #10 has the right of it. I´ve had lower and lower opinions of the police in the past 20 years or so. It´s getting harder and harder to determine to who to root for in some of these altercations. If the police don´t start policing themselves instead of having an "us vs them" attitude (guess who´s the "them" in that phrase), then they will continue to lose my respect. I would dearly love to give them respect but they have to earn it.

I do agree #10. But for those who automatically are trying to turn this into a racial issue, let me say that these feral youths come in all colors. Where I live, they are mostly hispanic and white. Yes, the number of black gang types is proportionately larger than most other ethnicities, but one still should not assume that the perps are one race or another without some kind of proof. It doesn´t help the situation. The media should be honest about it though. You can´t address the problems in the community until you expose it for what it is. And it really isn´t racial as it is cultural (most of which has been shaped by our leftist dominated society for the past 45 years).

By the way, please don´t insult feral cats. My feral cat family is very well-behaved!

When a judge requires the mothers to sit in jail with their undisciplined kids, you might see a change.

I know many do not agree with me, but we need to bring back the draft to get these kids some discipline.

I think most of us know it´s true,[in closed reply´s] The MSM should carry much of the blame, for covering up this mess as a Feral Cat would. This has been going on for many years and it has only made it worse for the many Blacks who are caught in the middle of the mess in the Hood, pretty soon it will take one big Cat to cover up the mess........ Perhaps a Bulldozer will be the only answer.

A United Nations report found that European nations received 484,600 applications. Germany topped the list with 109,580 pleas from persecuted citizens, followed by France with 60,100. Sweden was third with 54,360, followed by Turkey with 44,810, while Britain was fifth with 29,190, marginally ahead of Italy with 27,830. It is thought that the comprehensive welfare states of France and Germany and their location in mainland Europe are likely to be the reason for topping the table, though the UN did not detail the reasons for applications, nor how many were accepted by each state.

“For better or worse” is a vow some married couples don’t take seriously. But not in Arlington, Va., where a drunk, naked wife rushed to the aid of her husband at the county jail. ARLnow.com reports Maura Fussell showed up at the Arlington Magistrate’s Office at about 11 p.m. last Saturday. She was there to see her husband, who had been arrested earlier in the day on unspecified charges in Clarendon. Fussell, 26, was drunk, completely naked and refused to get dressed or leave in a cab, police said. The Washington Post tries to piece together how this sort of thing

Mason — Michigan’s first same-sex marriage was performed shortly after 8 a.m. today by Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum at the historic courthouse in Mason. Glenna DeJong, 53, and Marsha Caspar, 52, both of Lansing, were married in the lobby after Byrum opened the clerk’s office at 8 a.m. and issued them a license. “We’ve been waiting 27 years for this,” said DeJong. The marriage followed a ruling late Friday by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman that struck down Michigan’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional. Byrum, who normally opens at 8 a.m. only Monday through Friday, raced

Nearly every state department will see some funding reduced in a series of spending cuts totaling nearly $700 million that Governor Christie says is needed now to help keep New Jersey´s $33 billion budget in balance. Christie´s administration announced the midyear cuts -- spending adjustments called "lapses" in state budget documents -- in late February, but the administration did not detail at the time which departments and programs would see budget reductions. A detailed list of the spending lapses was provided to The Record on Friday in response to a public records request. In all, the administration is making cuts to 70 different

TRENTON — A major credit-rating agency on Wall Street lowered its outlook on New Jersey´s debt from stable to negative today, citing a perfect storm of rising debt, ballooning costs, questionable budgeting practices by Gov. Chris Christie and an economic recovery that has lagged the rest of the country in recent years. In a report to investors, Fitch analysts also panned Christie´s new $34.4 billion budget because, like previous ones, it "relies on one-time measures" instead of stable funding sources and includes only a small cushion of cash reserves, $301 million, to absorb the shock of any unexpected costs.

Detroit— The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has a message for Detroit residents and companies more than 60 days late on their water bills: We’re coming for you. With more than half of the city’s customers behind on payments, the department is gearing up for an aggressive campaign to shut off service to 1,500-3,000 delinquent accounts weekly, said Darryl Latimer, the department’s deputy director. Including businesses, schools and commercial buildings, there are 323,900 Detroit water and sewerage accounts; 164,938 were overdue for a total of $175 million as of March 6. Residential accounts total 296,115; 154,229 were delinquent for a

As long as the kids are away, teachers can play, a panel of judges said Thursday, ruling that educators shouldn’t be fired for having sex with one another — even in their classrooms. The Manhattan appellate judges said foreign-language teachers Alini Brito, 34, and Cindy Mauro, 38, were treated too harshly when they were dismissed for engaging in a topless classroom tryst inside Brooklyn’s James Madison HS in 2009. “The penalty of termination is shockingly disproportionate,” said the ruling, which noted that “engagement in what appeared to be consensual sexual conduct with an adult colleague is not in and of

Lincolnton police say they are looking for a man who allegedly posed as a podiatry student and sucked the toes of a female shopper this week in a Walmart store. Investigators said a man entered the store about 11:15 a.m. Monday, approached the woman and said he was a podiatry student. The two began a conversation, police said, and the man talked the woman into trying on several pairs of shoes. At one point, police said, the man held the woman’s foot, put it in his mouth, and sucked her toes. Police said the man’s image was captured on surveillance

Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added.

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response.
