    Its weird how immediately following the firing and hiring of a new Police Chief crime rose through the roof in Paterson. For Patersonians who yet dont get it, this is BAD. Set.higher standards even in Paterson and fire the Mayor and Police Chief. His firing of the previous Police.Chief cost.Paterson litterally millions of dollars. The only thing obvious to me was the previous Police.Chief wasnt of the Muslim faith. And now moral doesn't exist. Bad moral = Bad results.
