She is a troubled girl - making bad choices and her dad is a drama queen - leaking to the press
Rosie July 23, 2014 at 08:56 am
To me, it sort of sounds like "the boy who cried wolf" too many times. Now, every timeRead More something happens to her - good or bad - we are going to question it. However, if, this time, she is hurting the reputation of a person, such as her boyfriend, this IS a crime. I tend not to believe anything she says. She even has put her parents in a situation that I am certain people are losing respect for them, too, since they seem to go along with whatever she wants and does.
Bob Harris July 23, 2014 at 09:18 am
Rosie, your comment hits the nail on the head. Parents who claim their kid is good and the friendsRead More are the bad apples should stop making fools of themselves. Birds of a feather....blah blah blah. As far as the boyfriend goes, when she sued her parents I PREDICTED HE WOULD BE NEXT IN A POST RIGHT ON THIS WEBSITE. That now turned out to be a valid prediction. She attacks whoever is closest to her. Parents out there, warn your sons. Her parents raised a spoiled brat. Now the taxpayers will have to foot the bill every time she runs to court to get attention. To her father, grow some b*lls and put your foot up her a*s so she will learn to stop making a nuisance of herself.

@Winston Smith I noticed on another "Patch" you were asking somebody if they had vinylRead More records. If you go onto "Brick Patch", conversation section and scroll down you will see somebody is selling some "old vinyls" with their original sleeves. He/She says they are in good condition, some "Beatle's" and He/She has some 45's. I apologize to everyone else I know this is off topic!
Guess Who July 22, 2014 at 01:43 pm
I have seen these 2 scummers around Lakewood several times, hopefully I will again after they getRead More out. I'd like to discuss their immigration situation over some tequila while explaining American history to them including what was done with men like them before fools changed the laws here to protect the criminals while ignoring the victims. I'm sure it will be an interesting discussion that will hold their interest

Why do they find it necessary to close the park over an incident like this?

What does that mean? Convicted of trying to molest his 6 year old daughter? He's been convicted, soRead More it was more than trying. He's probably in Newark somewhere just fitting into the masses of people living there.
The Captain July 15, 2014 at 09:51 am
John, very very true. Kevin, nobody is bashing the NYer. We have no idea what happened. AlthoughRead More it sounds like he didn't stop and should have. We were just saying that way too often people drive like idiots. Maybe it was the idiot in front of him who wasn't paying attention and jammed on his brakes at the last moment. Who knows. Ironically my wife just called me minutes ago to say a guy cut her off so bad trying to pass she had to swerve onto the shoulder. People drive like it's not important and life doesn't matter. And maybe for them it doesnt. But for other people it does. Last year a relative got hit on his Harley. The SOB driver of the car ran a stop sign since he was too busy talking to the passenger. The Harley t boned him and it lunched his son 20 ft down the road and him over the hood. The bike was totalled but both luckily were ok. But at least the guy got to converse with his passenger ! Friggin idiot !
The assholes are not the ones weaving, the assholes are the ones riding in the left lane. I myselfRead More do not use my blinker. If I do the car I'm passing will speed up taking the space I need to move into. Sloped for debris my ass more like rubber necking and use that as an excuse. They guy who stopped probably a cops relative.
Angela Rose Guerra July 18, 2014 at 07:08 am
When the accidents happen to you.. are you prepared? I found a website that can really help us withRead More this matter. Automatically create a conference call to a 24/7 call center if you press the panic button(The application downloaded to your phone) and help you to let your friends/families know what is happening to you and it could escalate a call to a nearest 911 if it's a real emergency. Check this out guys. Maybe this will help you http://safetrec.com/
Charlie July 18, 2014 at 09:13 pm
My business partner and I have over 15 years of experience in this field. We have helped a lot ofRead More people stay on their journey of recovery and sobriety. We do much more than just help place people into the best treatment center possible for them. We talk to the families and make sure they understand what is best for them t do and what exactly there child will be going through. We keep the family informed and even after someone has been sober for a long period of time we still check in to make sure they are doing well. This is a huge passion for us. We have not met a person in need of help that we weren't able to help. If someone doesn't have insurance we have connections to get people scholarships and if they are looking to go out of state we usually can get there flight paid for and we provide transportation. What we do is so much more than just getting people placed into treatment and send them on there way. We follow them on there journey the whole way through it. Out goal is to get as many people sober as possible. Do you know someone that is in need of help?
TRedfield July 18, 2014 at 09:46 pm
I do indeed however inasmuch as you are 29 how do u have 15 years of experience at this? EspeciallyRead More while being a firefighter, photographer, Starbucks employee, culinary student, computer IT specialist, etc, etc, etc. ? Nowhere do I see any of the credentials I already mentioned.......so why shouldn't I be deeply suspicious? So you are a rehab broker? Hence the marketing angle? Look, I could do that , Mr, Mecca. I just cant figure out your motivations. Anyone can make phone calls..one just needs perseverance for that. Which I have already. That doesnt qualify me to " categorize them into an ....effective treatment plan".
Charlie July 18, 2014 at 10:00 pm
Sounds like you found my Linkedin profile. I haven't worked at Starbucks in about 7 years or so andRead More I haven't done photography in over a year and that was rarely. Firefighting is volunteer so I do that when I am available. As I have stated in my previous posts, getting people help is a huge passion of mine and I go to great lengths and spend a lot of time helping people get sober. As I have also previously stated I do much more then get people into a treatment facility as I guide the person and the family throughout the entire journey. I have mysef available 24/7 for anyone who needs help.
Bob Vey July 16, 2014 at 08:45 am
The shooter was an ex-con. He HATED police. For some reason, he has had enough. Maybe he was drunkRead More or stoned & didn't want to go back to jail. So he grabs a security guards gun & waits for the police to arrive & opens up on them. After killing the first cop the next two cops to arrive on the scene open up on him & kill him. Police cars need bullet proof glass & steel plates put in the doors. The results from his blood test should be coming out any day now.

If you look at the people who frequent Walmart, you get a clear, pathetic, pitiful, picture of theRead More core of the problem. Severely undereducated, easily brainwash-able, very apparent lack of self value. Perfect target voter for the republiscams. Without these types, the right wingers might eke out 10 pr 20% of the vote every election. Its no wonder why the red states are the poorest educated in the country.

@MaryLynn if Walmart is such a great company, why can't THEY help their employees? I understand ifRead More there is a divorce or death etc.....but for Christmas?? Give your employees a bonus free turkey! While the Walmart CEO is being brought his dinner prepared by his staffed cook. He should maybe think of the little people who got him to where he is.

A subject in Jersey City stabbed a security guard and took the guard's handgun. When a two manRead More police car responded the subject shot and killed the officer on the passenger side and was then shot and killed by the police. The subject had claimed earlier that he would be famous. Of course the media has published his name and given him his 2 seconds of fame. So the copycats will keep on copying.
jersey girl July 21, 2014 at 01:15 pm
If the woman owns a gun legally she should know the laws period. Laws are the laws if we like themRead More or not. I hope they cut her a break for being honest but it is her responsibility to know the laws. Ignorance of Law is no defense in the United States.
William July 21, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Thank You jersey girl. When a person legally Buys a Gun a Responsibility and Accountability comesRead More along with it. Just as with a Drivers Lic. Even tho one is a Right and one is a Privilege. Ignorance is not Bliss. Plain and simple she broke New Jersey Law, No matter the excuse The court will decide not The Public Court of Opinions, Just because in Penn. one can walk in Buy a Gun and the law says you have a right to Carry, does not give you the same rights in any other states. And THUDNJ You really think The Federal GOV. would do a better job . IRS-VA- CIA -FBI Yea Right. And to repeat my Self To Obtain a New Jersey Firearm Purchasing Permit, Be it Pistol or Shotgun. It goes threw back Ground checks From Local Police , State Police and Federal ( FBI ) checks, So in essence She or any one from out of State should have more rights the a New Jersey Citizen. And THUDNJ it is The Federal Gov, Us Senators and Congress that are coming up with these screwy laws, So every time some one is found with a Loaded gun in their car from out of State or MEXICO where they bought it Legally Most with no Background Checks or Even a Drivers LIC. Where A Drivers LIC. will be given to the Illegals if obamanation has his way they just have to say I did not know it was Illegal I am Sorry, This whole story can go on and on with Opinions when IT IS THE LAW of New Jersey she Broke,
