Ankle deep? Beach communities can't predict occurrences such as this. Another BS lawsuit that costRead More taxpayers money. Every time you are in water there is a risk. Especially the ocean.
MissElanyS July 25, 2014 at 04:57 pm
@CementMixer: "Clear negligence"???? by whom? If the beach was unsafe and the townshipRead More did put signs up no swimming, they did everything they could do, short of placing velvet rope stanchions across the shoreline, to deter people from entering the water. There is no case here. The township may end up settling out of court but I would take my chances in front of a jury if I were the township attorneys.

This is really bad. These people have got to be put away for a long time but we all know how theRead More courts work. When they get out, and they will get out, the cops should just hound them for every little violation until they decide to go back to their gutter in Camden. I see one of them got his face scratched up when he fought with the police. He’ll probably be crying police brutality. Not brutal enough. I’m just glad that the people they attacked along with the police, were not seriously hurt.

For a snake expert to see the head and neck of a 14 foot snake and not able to grab it as it swamRead More past his leg, sounds like billable hours to me. I've owned and handled these snakes before and as an expert he should have been able to get the snake. If the snake wanted the man he would have went after him. I've had boas that would let a rat bite them without doing anything back. For the most part, these snakes will strike at you if they feel threatened, but will not kill for the heck of it. They kill to eat. Now granted a constrictor will throw his body around but if your not seen as prey they will not intentionally kill you. Doesn't seem as if he has much of a plan to capture the snake. Unfortunately it will probably be killed due to somebody else's irresponsibility!

John, its the truth. We have a large swath of the population that can't or won't work, and we are aRead More nation that demands cheap food. Part of that is labor costs. After all, we're a people that willingly handed its manufacturing industry over to China so we could buy cheap crap at Wal-Mart. Illegals are critical to cheap food, plain and simple. If you traveled out west (argi) or to the flyover states (meatpacking) you'd know this. I love the conspiracies you cite to combat cold, simple economic realities that have been in place since the middle of the 19th century. And good luck sealing the borders when every year we cut the budget, and then put sequestration in place, so that some Canadian senator somehow representing Texas can sell books.

The shooter was an ex-con. He HATED police. For some reason, he has had enough. Maybe he was drunkRead More or stoned & didn't want to go back to jail. So he grabs a security guards gun & waits for the police to arrive & opens up on them. After killing the first cop the next two cops to arrive on the scene open up on him & kill him.

Thank You jersey girl. When a person legally Buys a Gun a Responsibility and Accountability comesRead More along with it. Just as with a Drivers Lic. Even tho one is a Right and one is a Privilege. Ignorance is not Bliss. Plain and simple she broke New Jersey Law, No matter the excuse The court will decide not The Public Court of Opinions, Just because in Penn. one can walk in Buy a Gun and the law says you have a right to Carry, does not give you the same rights in any other states. And THUDNJ You really think The Federal GOV. would do a better job . IRS-VA- CIA -FBI Yea Right. And to repeat my Self To Obtain a New Jersey Firearm Purchasing Permit, Be it Pistol or Shotgun. It goes threw back Ground checks From Local Police , State Police and Federal ( FBI ) checks, So in essence She or any one from out of State should have more rights the a New Jersey Citizen. And THUDNJ it is The Federal Gov, Us Senators and Congress that are coming up with these screwy laws, So every time some one is found with a Loaded gun in their car from out of State or MEXICO where they bought it Legally Most with no Background Checks or Even a Drivers LIC. Where A Drivers LIC. will be given to the Illegals if obamanation has his way they just have to say I did not know it was Illegal I am Sorry, This whole story can go on and on with Opinions when IT IS THE LAW of New Jersey she Broke,

Ya i no the cause of death may seem obvious, I was just saying that with the facts stated in theRead More article, it just didn't seem to be an important topic to write about or inform people about. The news of his passing doesn't concern anyone other then his friends and family. I'm not saying what he did was right by any means, I am just saying that the way this article was written was poor. If it written to prove a point, I honestly think it failed at doing so. I've whiteness how this addiction affect its users, i get it. People very close to me have been addicted and did some shitty things to and I am not trying to justify any of that, It was their choice, you are right about that. However, writing an article with very little facts to go on and no point being made, does nothing but hurt the families dealing with this loss. He wasn't know in this town as a 'druggie' those who grew up with him and/or went to school with him, knew him to be a fun and goofy kid, and this article was just hurtful. We're not trying to idolize him, we are just trying to stand up for someone who doesn't have a voice anymore, someone who is being disrespected and deserves to be remembered for all his good times which out weigh the bad. Something I am sure you would do to, had you been close to someone who passed and is shown publicly as this awful troublemaker, when you know that was his darkest time and shouldn't be seen as that. I will agree with you that he was given every opportunity to live, as we all are, and it is sad to see people fall down this dark path of addiction, but who are we to publicly shine a light on his worse mistakes after they are gone? This is a small town new blog, this type of information does not need to be shared, especially when all the article seemed to be trying to do is have the viewers click on links.
Angela Marie July 9, 2014 at 07:36 pm
Dame, this is not the issue at hand. The issue at hand is the fact that the article had been writtenRead More not for purposes of giving an example to the youth but rather it seems because there was nothing else to discuss. It also as though they made him seem as this person whom he was not. It is unnecessary to have an article like this up on a local, hometown page when, as you can see, is not truthfully to whom Drew was.
