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
