First of all, he is only accused not convicted. Everyone is innocent in this country until provenRead More otherwise, or at least they were when I woke up in America this morning. However, bail is set according to the risk of the defendant not showing up at trial. If the defendant is facing serious jail time or has dual citizenship, or really likely to leave the country because he has family somewhere abroad, then the judge will ask for a high bail. It works on reverse, too. If someone doesn't have much to lose financially, (no family, home, assets) there's not much to ensure he sticks around for trial. The judge will set a high bail. I guess the fact that this defendant is a former Rutgers student must mean he is less of a flight risk? Um, no.
Brian April 17, 2014 at 09:27 pm
Don't fix the bail system. For once it's working in our favor (our being the rest of society thatRead More prefers criminals stay locked up). Too many criminals on the street already. Leave him in prison. He shouldn't be allowed to have bail for his terrorist acts.

The one land- country road I travel on (on a daily basis) calls for 35 miles per hour speed limit.Read More As many travel this road to access the GSP and are just passing through my neighborhood they often get upset by this and 'tail gate' me.... sad! It just makes me drive slower to torment them!! We even have the cops who hide out, catching 'speeders' on this road... it still doesn't make folks slow down! Sorry state of affairs!

@John...now I understand what u were stating. Thank you for elaborating. I too get a bit frustratedRead More at the way they chose to word things in the stories they write. However, I do find it quite humorous to read some of the comments made n how upset n defensive some of the ppl get.

Can someone who understands English as a first language proofread Patch articles before they areRead More published? This article reads like a jigsaw puzzle.

Crime courtesy of the highway system. Great job to the Officers in removing this piece of garbageRead More from Main Street. I wish you both a speedy recovery. I hope that the lawmakers eventually make the decision to allow tasers in NJ. If they had a taser, the man would have been on the floor in a second, preventing the injuries to the Officers one would think. Right ? I hope this guy at least got a self defense necessary punch in the nose and afoot to the baaaaaalllzzzz.
Christian April 12, 2014 at 04:30 pm
T.M. Jones. Might need to check your own facts. Please explain what you mean about theRead More "investigation timeline" because I don't get it? And don't kid yourself, just because the Feds aren't wasting their time on his chiro partner, doesn't mean he wasn't involved.....it might just mean that they don't consider him to be important since he doesn't hold a medical license. You and CarMax seem oddly concerned with the alleged harm done to the partner - sounds like he may not be so squeaky clean....still think he's a victim here?
MaxDuPont April 12, 2014 at 07:34 pm
The doc is guilty of a crime, makes him a criminal. Criminals are no role models for any civilizedRead More community. He doesn't need a public flogging, he just needs to be gone from the school, and he will be soon. Stay tuned. Christian: As I said, I don't know the partner or partners, if they're not clean, find out and get rid of them. Ken Dahl claimed to have overheard the partners father talking about things before the news - ask him to pursue that with the Feds. I don't believe in chiros anyway, so one less quack will be even better! Timothy J: Since you cannot defend the doctors crime or address the issue of whether he should be on the town payroll looking after kids, you choose to attack me and my parents. Bravo, it shows your character and the "grace" that Nancy so fervently wishes for - and in all her grace she praised your personal attack. Wonderful, you are both lowlifes and I'm glad never to have known you - that's the beauty of anonymity. Yes, you're welcome to have the last word.
Nancy April 12, 2014 at 07:48 pm
Oh dear, Max. Quite the victim. And rather prone to hyperbole. Lowlife? Really. Well, I'm gratefulRead More there are people of compassion out there, and I really hope that, at a low time in your life, you find yourself surrounded by people who would show you compassion. I know I would. So, I think this conversation has run its course.

I see the self-esteem police have taken over the Patch, just as they have taken over publicRead More education. This bank-robbing loser was put in the Morris County "Correctional Facility." We can't say "jail" any more? Bad for inmates' self-esteem? Just like in school where the standards are lowered so everyone gets on the honor roll and the national honor society, every athlete gets a trophy, and no one takes a "test." Now it's an "assessment." "Correctional facility"....what bu****it!!!

How about crimes against the environment and working people. How about the legal chicanery of theRead More Supreme Court; corporations are people? How about the crime of being above the law or changing the law to legalize misconduct and policy of criminal actions by our leaders? We are all becoming victims of an uncaring unjust system that puts individual rights of property and corporate greed above the people and the future of life here on Earth.

Isn't it about time that banks locate their cameras 6' off the floor and closer to the faces ofRead More their "customers"? I realize that we are all using funny money, so the Fed will just "print" more, but someone could get hurt or killed during these bank robberies. Also, if Patch would like us to try to ID these perps, couldn't they allow their page be zoomed-in by the viewer? /end rant

willnj - ya I guess its far too much to ask for timely information from a state with a huge tax billRead More every year. NJ should absoluty be state of the art in everthying with as much money as they get. But instead all that money goes to the 100k pensions they all payout.
Wilnj March 31, 2014 at 02:42 am
@Madison - I so no graphics on that site that would given anywhere near the information thatRead More contained in the press releases. @John - While I agree with you, the pensions aren't going away so demanding more services is just going to add on to the tab, not replace something else.

From NBC news: Middlesex County prosecutors said Timothy Puskas, 38, is being charged with murderRead More for the death of William McCaw, a 22-year-old Kean University student who was found Feb. 15 outside a New Brunswick home. He died of blunt force trauma, authorities said. Prosecutors did not elaborate on what allegedly happened between Puskas and McCaw, but a spokesman said the preliminary investigation indicated they did not know each other.

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
