State police are ok as a temporary solution.Poverty in the inner city is not a racial issue, its anRead More economic one.Until we stabilize families and create values where drugs etc are not tolerated-we will fail.We need to take a very careful unbiased look at public education and ways of building family stability. Some cities have turned themselves around-we need to look at them and study them

We have a huge police presence in areas where violent crime is not a big problem in this state andRead More not enough police patrols in areas were violent crime rate are high. Sending the state police to were the cirme problems are makes a lot of sense

You cannot legislate morality....it is impossible. And NO amount of money is going to heal a societyRead More where having children by multiple men (who provide no financial/emotional support) is accepted as normal. Added to that, there is absolutely no shame in being taken care of by the Government....it has gone on for generations. If money was the answer...the inner-city residents would be Harvard graduates. Oh, and before the racist/Republican hate mail starts...I had a black daughter-in-law, and have paid tuition for dozens of minority children, to keep them out of the sewer that is the Camden public school system. Trash comes in all colors, whether it's Camden or Haddonfield.

There would be no racists if it were not for certain segments of society behaving badly.

NO NO NO Heywood you can't say that. segments of society is just a code for the no no thing.

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.

Tom Davis (Editor) April 15, 2014 at 11:17 am
Fred, I apologize for the mistakes in the story, and thank you for pointing those out. They wereRead More corrected, but they never should have appeared in the first place. Now we'd like the focus to be on the incident itself, and the fact that a 9-year-old was struck. I'd like the focus to be on wishes for the child to get well, and what can be done to improve the situation. Thanks.
Fred Grygiel April 15, 2014 at 12:12 pm
Appreciate your response Tom but unless the comments are really inappropriate, controlling theRead More responses according to "your" plan for how responses should be posted is a bit overreaching and would result in your preferences being the dominant theme. I do agree that the first comment should always be for the recovery of the child. Without knowing the speed of the car, whether the child wore a helmet, was the child observing all the rules of the road for bicyclists it is very difficult to recommend how to "improve the situation." One key element of the story was incorrect: 11:08 pm instead of am made for unfortunate and erroneous speculation about the quality of parental oversight of the child. Clearly proofing is an essential element of reporting. We all can improve in the future.
Fred Grygiel April 15, 2014 at 12:59 pm
I should have also noted: was the driver distracted (talking on cell phone, texting or any otherRead More distraction)?

@John...now I understand what u were stating. Thank you for elaborating. I too get a bit frustratedRead More at the way they chose to word things in the stories they write. However, I do find it quite humorous to read some of the comments made n how upset n defensive some of the ppl get.

RJS@BHS April 9, 2014 at 07:31 pm
I notice the photo has changed. Editor, can you elaborate on the arrest with some facts regardingRead More your lead "story" yesterday? 25 days have now passed. Forgive us for sensitivity as there is an explosive drug problem. I understand Journalistic integrity maybe too much to ask these days, but if you are going to be responsible for a community service, i suggest you refer to the dictionary on your desk (if you even have one) and look up "responsibility". Another question. do you actually get paid for reports like this? If yes, I retract my dictionary advice. You don't need it as if you can earn a living producing pieces like this - you are the smartest dude on earth!

Sadly, Here we go again. Woman with alleged mental health issues. (Hoarding/OCD) died in house fireRead More in Wall. Does anyone get it that our Health Dept's are ill equipped to handle mental health issues. Has anyone done an in depth report of the persons that oversee the health Dept's in Monmouth and Ocean. Under-qualified and over paid cronies of politicians that is who! (in my opinion). Does anyone realize the budgets these boards have and where the monies go. Check out the Psychiatrists, Psychologists, and LCSW's in the system. The foreign ones are making hundreds and hundreds of thousands off Americans every year. Wake up and follow the trail... Mental health is big business for the health profession.

Why are people "living" in a motel? If they are disabled or unable to work, isn't thereRead More better low income housing to offer, especially if the unit contained more than 2 people? One apparently housed a family of 4. Why aren't they in an apartment rather than primo beach real estate that few working class could afford?
Deborah Houlihan April 8, 2014 at 11:13 pm
Since the fire a few weeks ago, I have read with a heavy heart so much of what has been said here onRead More the patch about the Mariner's Cove and the people staying there. I'm not sure what the answer is to the problem of homelessness in Ocean County, but I do know that many of the people staying at the Mariner's Cove where hard working people... taxi drivers, dump truck drivers, housekeepers, blue collar workers making minimum wage and affected by the big drop in income after the storm... many also lost their rentals in Sandy. Some stayed at the hotel for around $35/night. Some did some chores in exchange for a place to stay. In the beginning, police would drop off whoever they found homeless in Point Beach, and the manager would welcome them even though they were without power and completely flooded on the first floor. At least they had a roof over their heads. Things are still being investigated, but I can tell you that what I know of the manager there is that he has a heart of gold, going out of his way frequently to help those who are in need. In a report from October of 2013, there were still 28,000 people in Ocean County displaced from their primary home due to Sandy. Some could afford to rent someplace, some are staying with family or friends, some are in hotels. It was the largest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean and it slammed into us, breaking every record we ever had here in NJ, and especially in Ocean County. It is estimated that it will take 7 years to recover. Please people, have compassion. So many are hurting more than you can even begin to imagine. Lord, have mercy. We need Your light and love now more than ever.

@ Av. I agree that anyone with normal emotions is totally outraged by his utter callousness.Read More However; most guards are decent law abiding people who do their difficult jobs without becoming like the scum they guard; regardless of how they feel. They have my pity. Barbara; We are responsible for our evil acts. To receive redemption; this piece of utter filth would have to undergo a complete conversion of heart, & utterly detest the betrayal he committed against his helpless baby girl. We ARE offered forgiveness... But first we must admit & atone for our crimes. In his state of unrepentant arrogance he condemns himself to a much more dire fate than just life in jail. His innocent daughter will be among those who testify against him at final judgement. He brutalized & killed her without any mercy, so... Just how do you think he will be judged by the heavenly Father, whose precious gift he abused, hmmmm.
