Why is this placed at someone else's door? Where is personal responsibility? SOme people grow up inRead More crappy families, or have horrific pasts and don't succumb to a drug addiction.

We would have less sinful parasites; poisonous creatures bred into ignorance by their neglectful parents. Maybe our officers should gain more experience and knowledge than waste their time rotting their minds with sports and other vegetating activities. This town is beyond salvation, I can only hope those with hindsight can absolve themselves through the edifice of catholisim and Christianity. Praise be Jesus, may he strike down all those who worship false prophets such as "Little Wayne" and Glen beck. When the rapture will squeeze the sin and hate out of all our souls, Vishnu will ascend the mountain of time. She will take the form of Kalki and you rapist, democratic, fascist slime.

DD April 8, 2014 at 07:09 pm
Macko, I'm sure we agree, but to clarify my position on this particular story, I think it's exactlyRead More the type of thing the Patch could, and does, excel at. This is in fact "hyper-local" news on which you won't find coverage outside the area. I suspect Ridgewood and Glen Rock residents would be very interested in an assault at a local bank in town. Surprisingly the ensuing discussion in the comments was actually high-minded and based on facts and not emotion.
Macko D April 8, 2014 at 09:54 pm
DD - agreed for sure. More of this local interest news would make the Patch a better medium. I'mRead More rather new at this so I don't know how to give this feedback to the writer, Jessica Mazzola. Thanks for your thoughts and although we will I'm sure disagree at times, I do appreciate your intelligent points.
DD April 8, 2014 at 10:43 pm
Apologies for the multiple deletions (edits aren't a part of the Patch's functionality, which isRead More just as well)... If people don't disagree, in an intelligent and thoughtful manner, then they should be ignored. It's refreshing to see a contributor not resorting to and relying on links and media-fed talking points. Real discussion trumps all of that superficial nonsense. I hope we can make the Patch, and, by extension, real and meaningful discourse, better, by keeping that type of thing out of the equation.

It's a joke. Do comments on the patch have to "relate to the topic?" Is this writtenRead More anywhere?

DD No, but perhaps it should be. Stay on topic, otherwise what's the point. Post anythingRead More wherever you want. Hey, how about those Knicks!
DD March 29, 2014 at 04:18 pm
As this story is related to major back-ups and there is another story related to major back-ups itRead More would be pretty easy to make the case that the joke (another reminder) is related. If the subject of the the joke was not related to this story, it would not have been funny. As far as your question of "what's the point" it's pretty obvious that there is very little value in comments on the Patch on the whole.

Macko D March 28, 2014 at 11:05 am
DD - no, I don't live "in fear" of such an incident, and I'm thinking that it's quite leapRead More from discussing a car break-in to sexual assault. If there were were a rash of sexual assaults reported, I would naturally be much more attuned to that. Car break-ins, the incidences of pedestrians being hit by cars, and even house break-ins are, to my knowledge far more prevalent. I'm just a believer in a little prevention where possible. As far as a house break-in and/or sexual assault, that's when having a weapon is a good idea. I thank you for sharing your ideas in a constructive and civilized manner.

He died of blunt force trauma, authorities said.

I actually don't have any issues with the FD and count some of their volunteers among my friends.Read More But let's be honest, a volunteer department could have handled this call. In fact, I would guess that a large number of responders were volunteers.
Albert D March 28, 2014 at 04:59 pm
I am a volunteer firefighter in a wealthy Bergen county township, I have being volunteering for 5Read More years now and have training on the state and federal level. My town has a 100% volunteer fire department and a 100% ambulance corps. Each are very very dedicated, trained well, and are well respected throughout northern NJ for our services. However the biggest issue is man power during working times due to the fact we work jobs out of the area (I work at a hospital in central jersey). At any given time during the day you can have 2 guys show up to a call or 15, its hit or miss. Night time and weekends that's a different story because people are around. Same thing with our ambulance corps, they have a duty crew but if the duty crew is on a run when something else comes in during the day odds are another rig isn't getting out. Going 100% paid wont happen due to the fact that it would be too much money to pay to staff a fire truck and ambulance 24/7. However another option to look into is having a half paid half volunteer fire/ems department. You can have 2 FF/EMTS on a fire engine and a paid EMT driver on the ambulance during the day supplemented by volunteers. An example is if you have a Fire Alarm you already of a driver and FF on the Fire engine and now the first vollies come in you roll the truck 2-4 minutes faster due to the staffing at the fire house. Another example you now have an EMS ca,ll ambulance goes along with a fire engine with its FF/EMTS on it so now you have 3 EMTS on scene ( 2 from the fire truck 1 from the ambulance) and the vollies can also respond to help package and transport the patient. I feel that most of the state will never be paid but with the growing population in the state and the lack of volunteering in the emergency services I can see a half volunteer half paid happen. But this is just my opinion for my own town....Cheers

I'd like to see volunteer firefighters and first aid squads be required to get the training it takesRead More to be a professional while on call. I know of one first aid squad who make the ride to the hospital something like a "family affair", and believe me, if youre the patient lying in the back of that truck in pain....then all you need is a bunch of conversation between two teenage girls. But yeah.....I think towns should pay for these things.
