    How about cameras in these well known shooting and drug areas. Does anyone know if the city has them ?

      Cameras in Paterson? There are cameras throughout Paterson, many of them directly on top of drug dealing. At the BP gas station on Broadway there are multiple Police cameras, clearly visible and drug dealing is thriving within several feet if them. In fact drug dealers sell drugs 8n the wide open, even with Police right across the street hanging out at the gas station. Dont believe me? Then go park by Broadway at the gas station for ten minutes and you will see a booming drug business wide in the open.

        What is sad is the fact i do believe you. I used to live on E.27TH. Seems like no matter how many are arrested their is someone taking their place.
        I hate to think that politics are involved. We need to give kids a chance.
