    Sometimes is seriously wrong here. We are in for a very long summer.
    I live here for many years and I don’t remember back to back shooting in this large number.
    People just need to find a better way to handle their differences. I am not apart of the 1 percent for the most part many of us are hardworking people that want a better life for our family .
    I can move but I will ride the wave. I someday hope that Paterson can be restore to greatest .
    Again I do believe that our elected officials here in the city should start a conversation in the wards they are representing. Citizen have questions and concerns.
    This is my opinion.

    Maybe if they returned police patrols in this area, we wouldn't have this problem.This was a great area, but it's very quickly becoming another 4th ward. We hear shots on a regular basis here now. We see police respond to incidents that aren't reported on the news. Thank goodness we have the Paterson Times or we wouldn't know anything at all what's going on. The other news that cover Paterson want you to pay them to get the news.Disgusting
    I believe many incidents aren't reported because this is their prized historic district. God forbid the truth gets out and investors stop dealing with the city of Paterson. We all need to be involved. I will be letting the Paterson Times know of anything I hear about so they can investigate and report. You should do the same. Crime is going to get worse by the day here, as it already is.Where are the police??? They aren't in this area. So of course,that's where the criminals are going.

    Last night Paterson was a jungle outside. I know it was the first day of good temperatures but it was scary how dysfunctional of a city this has become. City officials look at only one death so far as a WIN. Issue is there have been so many shootings so far but their bullets aim haven't been so well and fortunately people have only been injured but not killed. Paterson needs to become a Police City and if you dont believe so then go live in the heart of it. Its like cities who are in favor of illegial immigrants just be sent all the illegial immigrants to deal with
