    I live in Paterson and people are outside all over the place here as if nothing is happening! Chamberlain Avenue has people walking up and down all over! I don't see any police breaking up these groups of hooligans anywhere! Apparently teenagers and 20 something's don't think it will affect them. Adults have their children walking in the streets like nothing! Then they wonder why they got sick….smh

    Unfortunately there are too many Paterson residents who take no responsibility for themselves or their children, and also have an expectation of being provided for to the detriment of everyone else.
