What a shame, what a disgrace that people live in such an enviroment. Where is the civility, the structure, what type of culture
would allow itself to fester such dysfuntion, and Im not talking about a few blocks.
West Miami as well. Yes it is sad we are in the richest country, and people still live in squalor.

Maybe we don't, so PLEASE enlighten us... not that it would matter, since I have a feeling "they" are already the majority in my town.

Exclamation Troll Warning

"This guy said that he saw dudes walking around with bats and 2x4's and it turned into 3+ pages. HA HA!"

"Tom, I'm gonna call you on this one. I've been in law enforcement for 30 years. The bulk of my work is in Essex and Union counties in New Jersey. Elizabeth is in Union County. I'm in Elizabeth on at least a weekly basis. I don't think your stretching it. I know your stretching it."

The quotes above are from two astute posters.

The OP has been seeking the lowest common denominator in human attitudes an intelligence in his posts. He delights in dredging up racist comments, then vanishes to a new thread.

When I caught him in the middle of his act on the LA forum, he disappeared, only to surface here. The bright side is that you still can't fool all of the people all of the time, no matter how hard you may try.

I am stating objective facts that I unfortunately observed, I know you don't agree with some of my posts, you need to stop picking on me.

Like I said earlier I'm curious why you would put up a post that was not factual so I did a search and read your other posts. Now I understand why!

Yeah, quit picking on this poor guy After all he saw naked unsheathed weapons and maybe was beaten too. He does not relate if he peed during the attack if that occurred or just at the visual shock of his experience.

He does need to post a map of his route, he could have been in a car rental in NJ and I can say that is scary.

I hope Oprah doesn't find out about this victim. She always says "Me Too". That poor girl has a lot of stories to tell, especially if it is Very Disturbing. She apparently likes to get close to the action. We don't know how close this poor guy got or even the length of the ball bats, most first reports are wrong.

In future, this can all be avoided by hooking up a rubber hose and running it down your pants leg. Just pretend to be getting out of the car and looking at something very far in the distance with your Good Foot on the ground. If anybody asks about the pool of liquid that appears, tell them it is condensation from the A/C unit.

As mentioned there are lots of Theys out there and many of those will not even give you a relief break either.

I apologize for sounding off so strongly. Your opinions are of no less value than my own.

My point of contention is that it's not necessary to make outrageous statements to generate a discussion. The truth is more than adequate, believe me. People who are about to make momentous decisions regarding where they will work, where they will live, and where they will send their children to be schooled do not deserve to have their time wasted on reading false representations.

As you and I both grew up in the SFV, we probably have much in common, setting aside our obvious differences. And the fact that we both have lived and travelled in various states gives us an opportunity to make worthwhile contributions to the state forums, provided that we are sincere in those opinions.
