Paterson community in uproar over shooting
that left 12-year-old girl brain-dead

NJ.com, by James Kleimann

Paterson — Residents of a violence-plagued Paterson neighborhood formed an impromptu rally just hours after a 12-year-old girl was struck by a stray bullet and declared brain-dead. Genesis Rincon, a student at School 21, was riding a scooter with two friends Saturday night on Rosa Parks Boulevard near Warren Street when she was shot in the head, according to Paterson police. She remains on life support at St. Joseph´s Hospital as her family finalizes plans to donate her organs. (Snip) Shootings occur almost nightly in the Fourth Ward, residents told The Record. Nearly half of the city´s shootings

Comments:
Unless they find a White-Hispanic or other non-black shooter, don´t expect to see The Usual Reverends and the Congressional Black Caucus riding around on scooters, a la the epidemic of "hoodies" in honor of Saint Trayvon. Instead, it´s business as usual on most any street named in honor of MLK or Ms. Parks; no extortion to be had, no expectation that anything can or even should change.

BOLO for a male between the ages of 13 and 27 who fell in with a bad crowd and was just starting to turn his life around. Other distinguishing characteristics: He´s an aspiring rapper and a good boy who always helps his mama.

OP´s comment hit the nail on its proverbial head! Black on black crime in such neighborhoods is SOP.

Idoesn´t matter what color her skin is, or the name of the street this happened on. This was a tragedy. A young girl with her whole life ahead of her is gone, and her family is grieving. My heart goes out to them. And I am in awe that they made the unselfish decision to donate her organs so that other lives can be saved.

Meanwhile, city officials are also considering legislation that would shut down late-night businesses in high crime areas.

There you have it: Close legit business to prevent shootings, then residents can claim there are no stores open in the hood.

I agree 100% with poster #4. It is a tragedy. But the frustration exhibited here is brought about the lack of corrective measures taken to solve this type of problem in the community where it happens. Any corrective measures suggested by outsiders (including Bill Cosby) is met with cries of "RACISM" or "Uncle Tom".

Nothing will change until there is a change in the leadership of the respective communities.

Where are those yellow bellied anti-constitution marxist cowards?

Ohhh they only do that at schools with white children. I see.

The family of a South Carolina teenager who was ordered to remove his makeup before taking a driver´s license photo this year has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Department of Motor Vehicles, according to court records. Chase Culpepper, a 16-year-old who identifies as male but wears makeup and women´s clothing on a regular basis, was ordered to remove his makeup by DMV officials when he tried to obtain his driver´s license in March. The agency argued that Chase was, in effect, attempting to disguise his appearance by not appearing as a male. The New York-based Transgender Legal

Beijing — More foreign firms are feeling unwelcome in China, the American Chamber of Commerce in China said as it released the results of a survey about the business climate in the world´s second-largest economy. The lobbying group said Tuesday that 60% of 163 respondents to its poll said they feel less welcome in China than before. That is up from 41% in a survey released late last year. Nearly half of the respondents also believe that foreign companies are being singled out in recent government campaigns investigating pricing practices and corruption, up from 40% in the 2013 survey.

Brooklyn cops were ordered to ignore blatantly illegal liquor sales inside three junkyards that were turned into open-air nightclubs — drawing thousands of rowdy revelers who vomited and urinated in the streets during the Labor Day weekend, The Post has learned. A 25-year-old man who was at one of the parties tied to the West Indian Day Parade was critically injured by two drunken men who followed him outside and stabbed him with a broken beer bottle. While the junkyard parties have been operating illegally for several years, cops cracked down and shut them all about three weeks ago,

Dozens of public schools across the city failed to pass even a single black or Hispanic student on this year’s state math or reading exams, a new analysis shows.

Nashville, Tenn. — Thirty-two teens escaped from a Nashville youth detention center by crawling under a weak spot in a fence late Monday, and 10 of them were still on the run Tuesday, a spokesman said. The teens — ages 14 to 19 — left their rooms and went into a common area, where they overwhelmed 16 to 18 staff members, Tennessee Department of Children´s Services spokesman Rob Johnson said.

Memphis, Tenn. — A man accused of raping a woman in her apartment is now in police custody. Donald Gwin was already on probation for another sex crime when this latest attack happened Thursday morning. Police say Gwin was wearing a GPS tracker at the time a woman was attacked at the Country Squire Apartments. (Snip) WREG-TV learned Gwin pleaded guilty in May to sexual battery charges related to a 2012 incident, when another woman said he raped her at knife-point.

Jinan, China — Usually, people can´t get rid of cockroaches fast enough, but a farmer in China collects and cooks them up. Wang Fuming is no ordinary farmer. He´s a roach farmer, and the bug business is booming. Inside where they breed the cockroaches, it stinks of ammonia, and Fuming says that in those rooms there are nearly a million cockroaches. It is literally the stuff of nightmares. Fuming said he feels close to them. A crop of American cockroaches brings in serious cash for Fuming, who is a roach kingpin in a growing market in China.

Nashville, TN — "This is the mother, the metal mother," says Jay Millar, examining a brilliant silver disc on the machine floor of United Record Pressing in downtown Nashville. "And the mother is where it all starts." Fifty years ago United stamped out the Beatles´ first US single and dozens of Motown hits followed by countless 45s and 33s through the 1970s and 1980s. Today more than two dozen vintage presses stamp out albums in a hissing, whirring display of a century-old technology that not only refuses to die, but is roaring to life.

Pittsfield, Mass. — Lee´s former police chief faces new federal charges alleging he took more than $50,000 intended for Christmas gifts for underprivileged children. Twelve indictments were issued by a federal grand jury Thursday charging Joseph Buffis with wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The indictments superseded four earlier charges for extortion by wrongful use of fear and other offenses. (Snip) Federal prosecutors say that from January 2007 through December 2011, Buffis diverted more than $51,000 from the Edward J. Laliberte Toy Fund for his personal use, with "a substantial portion" benefiting him and his family.

It’s often been observed that a certain type of British Lefty hates Britain – and that they reserve particularly hatred for Englishness. Back in 1941 George Orwell made this acute remark: England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution. So what’s new? The difference today is that this shame and self-hatred now dominates Left-wing thought, whereas it was once balanced by the decent

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
