@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!

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

Just curious of how many people are return customers or get treatment more than once.
Charlie July 22, 2014 at 05:24 pm
@Rem. We have had next to none become return customers after they go through us. In general, thereRead More is a decent sized portion of individuals that do go through treatment once. One of the best things that we offer to people is a change in their enviroment by sending them out of state. Do you know of someone that needs help?

On July 5th, my friend found this woman's bag full of drug paraphernalia, personal belongings &Read More court papers in the woods near 711 and washington street. The police ultimately confiscated her hidden belongings including prescription drugs, drug court documents and drug paraphernalia. Another example of the rampant, disgusting drug epidemic here in Toms River. these druggies are coming here from all over the state. it's a shame she wasn't dragged back to essex county immediately. now she's probably free here in Ocean County robbing someone else.

Gee what's taking Al scumbag Sharpton to step in and protect this piece of crap and say he blamesRead More the economy and society and this scumbags upbringing that causes him to steal and break into hardworking peoples cars or homes. WTF. All I know is this scumbag should be jailed for up to 7-10 and have someone burglerise this dirtbags A$$hole and rip it apart. Is it true that the police caught this scumbag by stepping on the back of waist of his pants because he wore them so low. LoL. He probably fell when his pants fell to his ankles. All I can say is , try to steal from me and you will spend life in the ground. Or be severely maimed. I work hard for everything I own and have. Typical scumbag with his smirk on his face. His picture should have been taken with his teeth knocked out. I'm not at all a racists. But when I watch the news everyday all I see and hear about is black on black crimes and black on white crime and also murder. Hey Al Sharpton what do you have to say about that. What's your Tawana Brawley excuse about the unbelievable high rate of crime and murder by the people you stand by and support or should I say chase after like the typical ambulance chasing scumbag lawyer. Why isn't Al Sharpton stepping up to the plate and supporting the poor rookie officer that was assassinated and murdered in cold blood in Jersey city. Knowing him he probably also left an empty bottle of Hennesy and a candle for that scumbag that murdered the young officer. Hey Al Sharpton why not change YOUR RACIST WAYS and step in and help the community and stop these people from thinking it fine to kill an innocent person let alone a officer who is doing his job to PROTECT AND SERVE THE PUBLIC.
JG July 16, 2014 at 07:18 am
Sharpton is afraid to turn against these people they might get him, white or black if you act like aRead More wild animal you get treated like a wild animal. THE HONESTLY FEEL THE COPS PICK ON THEM FOR NO REASON, the majority thta commit these crimes are black, so they should go after there own face for labeling them. there are plenty of white criminals out there and they get whats coming to them when there wrong and there have been whites that have killed cops also and other people and I feel the same way about them, I don't see Sharpton making excuses for them though.

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.
