What's behind the push with all the non-Gloucester City resident's setting up shop in Gloucester City ? A trial balloon from North Jersey (and beyond?) Gloucester City already has an impressive record of serious heavy duty busts to it's credit....do you need an Open Air Market of sort's to bring turf wars over who will sell weed in Gloucester City ?

It's the dynamics of the Marketplace.....

Well, it didn't take the Federalali's long to snip this in the "Bud" (get it ?). This is a priceless new FX Series: "Snowfall in Gloucester City". When the Big Money decides that they are in the play, all the wanna be's will be sent packing. This is a long range game plan, only The Big Player's need apply....stay tuned.

I support the recrimination of of using weed, but the sale of such is a NIGHTMARE IN THE MAKING...Just take a look a the Bowery section of San Francisco where weed is as ubiquitous as air, IT LOOKS LIKE A SCENE FROM THE WALKING DEAD. Folks come from other states to that area to smoke and buy weed. Just a question of time before your city is a Mad Maxx sequel....

Since I don't live in Gloucester City and don't vote there, I'm not getting involved in the politics of this per se. I would say that you took a side by default when you decided to redact the video that you posted. It's not political, it is what it is: a glaring misuse of public resources and you had an obligation to report the conduct. If you are bowing down to pressure from the PD to withhold a public issue, why would anyone vote the R ticket based on this type of behavior ? In the final analysis, you can only be judged by what you do when no one is looking, it goes to the issue of character. I'll credit for the police for standing up and doing their job, but as a citizen you fell a little short in that respect.

The 'Donut Affair". A re-occuring theme if you look hard enough. The Dunkin Donuts on Rt. 45 in Deptford across from the Shoprite Supermarker had a sign which said "Free Donuts and Coffee for local Police" This has since been taken down. The parking lot of DD was a favorite spot for unmarked and marked Police Vehicles to patrol due to the fact that it occupied a favorable position as it was at the entrance and exit off RT 45. I was stopped by an unmarked Deptford Police officer about two years ago while walking toward the DD. I was stopped and asked for ID and would I answer a few questions. I refused both and went on my way. Is DD a high crime area or just a place to hang out and consume high calorie donuts and drink free coffee ?

Charge them, lock the away for as long as you can. No lose to society. They would only be back more aggressive if they were set back out on the streets. Jail time should take the defiant look away as they do time incarcerated...The Joint is no joke when you are in with real gangsta's.

My initial reaction to this, no matter what the numbers suggest is that the last thing that I want to see on the road to correct whatever problems impairment might cause is to ramp up more revenue collection activity on the road.

IF you have ever been thru the Byzantine OPRA process, the only conclusion you can come to is that the process is not much more than a clone on the purely administrative,internal Internal Affairs process. It is built to uphold the status-qou of whatever agency you are in front of. The delay in responding and the extremely low rate of accountability of Record's Custodians that have been sanctioned for infractions of OPRA are a joke ... It's smoke and mirror's
