    Rip, that chicken store needs a cop posted daily by it. The city should charge owners to maintain police presence during operating hours. The joint is a magent for crackheads and drug transactions especially for out of towners.

    Rest in peace, DP. Taken too soon….I pray for his family, his girlfriend, and his kid. This is so sad, and so senseless. I hope they find who did this. The violence has to stop in Paterson.
