Speedy trial? Define speedy. Charles Manson and company committed the Tate/LaBianca murders inRead More 1969. The trial wasn’t until two years later. It took over a year before Jack Ruby went on trial for shooting Oswald. And the entire nation saw him do that on TV. The infamous Boston Strangler was caught in early 1964 but wasn’t sentenced until 1967. Its only on Law & Order that it goes from commission of the crime to sentencing in an hour.

Look, it's pretty simple. This "test" facility doesn't belong in a densely populated areaRead More period!

No big deal, a sitting council woman in Hopatcong did the same thing involving a police chase. SheRead More got PTI and is still on the town council. Any other town employee would have been fired/removed from their position.

I see the self-esteem police have taken over the Patch, just as they have taken over publicRead More education. This bank-robbing loser was put in the Morris County "Correctional Facility." We can't say "jail" any more? Bad for inmates' self-esteem? Just like in school where the standards are lowered so everyone gets on the honor roll and the national honor society, every athlete gets a trophy, and no one takes a "test." Now it's an "assessment." "Correctional facility"....what bu****it!!!
Geoff Cabral April 4, 2014 at 09:41 am
Isn't it about time that banks locate their cameras 6' off the floor and closer to the faces ofRead More their "customers"? I realize that we are all using funny money, so the Fed will just "print" more, but someone could get hurt or killed during these bank robberies. Also, if Patch would like us to try to ID these perps, couldn't they allow their page be zoomed-in by the viewer? /end rant
Jim Copeland April 4, 2014 at 01:06 pm
Well, If you are going to rob someplace it might as well be a Bank----Thats where they have the mostRead More money on hand! Down here in FLA these boneheads are always robbing the 7/11s they get a grand haul of a few hundred dollars and the cashiers Casio wrist watch. There is a driver and two thugs 100 bucks each and not to bright. JC
