    False Paterson is now doing a much better job apprehending these violent criminals. They stepped their game up even if it takes them a couple weeks or so they’re catching them. Problem is they’re not putting them away long enough.

    Eliminate Paterson Police force and replace with a zero tolerance Police Force. Paterson Police force cannot even deal with a squeegee problem. I am a life long Hispanic Paterson but all Democrats for the last decades have literally destroyed Paterson. Don't want real change then just continue.the same trend!
