    Paterson starting from all administrations is a mess. Federal government should take over all Liberal Socialist Democrat cities. I just drove by in Paterson and in Broadway by a gas station I saw a approx. 16yo white Male buy drugs from older black Male, wide open in the day light. Across the block there are police cameras on a temporary stand and.on the other corner 2 Paterson Police officers sitting inntheir.patrol car.talking to gas attendant. Both cameras and Police officers totally useless here. TOTAL SHAME
