      Everyday shootings and murder on Paterson streets. The perps and victims are so, so young. Why is nothing being done?

  • Paterson Resident

    This everyday shooting needs to be addressed. Whats going to happen when the violence knocks on the door of the mayor? We need a state of emergency, a curfew, and stop and frisk. How many more are we waiting for to get shot? What are we waiting for, a family member or child of a council member to get shot before action is taken? Mr. Mayor, you need to ask for help. Ask the state troopers to assist.
