    You can't walk in Paterson without thinking about these random drive-by shootings. Many teens are carrying guns and shooting for pleasure!

    Is this Mayor along with new Police Chief ever going to be held accountable? Or will STUPID (99.9%) Patersonians reward him by electing him back into office. I could see a.Muslims intent on voting for him because of just being a Muslim but I cannot see anyone with atleast half a brain reelecting him based on his horrible performance. He could try to put blame.elsewhere but it's all worse under his watch.
