The people of Brick own the property and what goes there should be put to a referendum. Brick needsRead More a community center/passive park to built there. Give the Brick residents more access to Forge Pond itself. There is enough room there to add in some other type of business such as a mid size hotel. They would work beautifully together!
Krissy Cottrell July 23, 2014 at 09:03 pm
Why not go back to the original idea of a community center? maybe a rec center? does brick reallyRead More need another strip mall? that will probably sit half empty since there are plenty of retail spaces available in other strip malls around town.

Kf good point some years back in laws invited wife and me to a Toby Keith concert at The GardenRead More State Arts Center Non ( PNCAC) Worst Experience I ever had, It was a Gathering of wannabes, Under age drinking acting like Ass holes no regard for others, The seating was Lawn Seats over sold and drunk ass holes tripping and falling puking on us, not just a few it was Most, as far as who was on stage it was oblivious, The actions and mentality of the so called fans and conditions of The Art center, and how its presented is probably why they have to get drunk in the first place, Want to remove all The problems of rights and so called intimidation by Police, BAN all Alcohol then see how many show up to see Toby Keith or any of The so called entertainers, The place would be EMPTY, OH and why do they add to the problem with Alcohol sales there. $$$$$$$$$$$ Follow the Money, Needless to say They will never get me back for any reason but to Visit The Vietnam Memorial.

vtxvulcan July 24, 2014 at 06:00 am
Let's get real I am sure there is outrage when a child is killed or molested. And what does itRead More matter if people took off or on unemployment, if they didn't show up at this protest they could have been off and on unemployment anyway. See people like you will always just conform to what society brings. You probably don't have a passion for anything or something you believe in. By your post you sound like a very passive aggressive person. This man killed his dog and the people in charge of protecting animals failed them. They are high salaried people who should uphold the law. Instead of doing there job they played doctor and evaluated him before he was diagnosed. They deemed him an older man with dementia but didn't take him directly to a crisis center, they allowed him to keep a cat, instructed him to drive to the animal shelter every two weeks to check the condition of his cat. Then they also said they were going to have him evaluated by senior services several days after this crime happened. What kind of urgency was there to make sure this person was ok? Plus they never actually came out and stated what were the circumstances that prevented them from charging this person. So before you bash others get your facts straight. Please follow us along at justice for mocha on Facebook. You might meet a couple passionate people who stand up for what the believe in.

I hope justice is served & he is held accountable, I have family in law enforcement & I heard about this, & to blame it on the establishment that served him is ridiculous.... knowing him he was probably half in the bag when he got there.... & at weddings friends...spouses etc go up to bar to get each other drinks all the time, to blame the server is just trying to get out of trouble. Bottom line to do the damage he did, he had to have been speeding, as that section the speedlimit is 35. I wonder how fast one must be traveling to do the damage he did. I seriously hope this is a wake up call, as he needs one.

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.

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.
