    The violence in Paterson is approaching unreal levels. I lived and worked in the city for decades. Honestly, sadly I’m glad I no longer have to be there.

        Defund the police! Close down the jails! Reparations! Kill all white people! Sounds crazy doesn't it? Then why the fuck do these morons vote for these Socialists like Mayor McCheese who are for it?

        • TK Kirkland

          That’s because those “morons” are his core voters; from the south Paterson Muslim community. The last major incident was a Fetty Wap (a rapper..) brawl/shooting. Nothing much happens other than a few illegal hookah lounges being shut down.

    Patersonians deserve all of this. Watch this mayor will win again. Democrats only love Democrats. I am a Hispanic and I voted for Guiliani when I saw how disastrous was David Dinkins

    • TK Kirkland

      Paterson and the rest of “America” deserves a whole lot more quite actually John…to be given back to its indigenous people lol

  • John

    This new Police Chief should be promoted.

    • TK Kirkland
