so sad why can't the police offer free rides so people can have a good time.

Not surprising at all. Honda dealers have seemingly used their cars' great reputations to bilkRead More their customers on Repair and Warranty Service work for decades. Suggestion to class action customers and your attorneys: Expand your review to the service side of these biznesses.

The service department is deceptive as well. I had a coupon for an $89.95 AC Service (regularlyRead More $100) The coupon reads and I quote "Our Honda-trained technicians will inspect and test your AC system for leaks, and add refrigerant if necessary". I presented the coupon and they (she) told me that freon is not included and it would cost $159.95 if they added any. The coupon may still be on the website.

I purchased a certified used suburban from Chevy 46 in Hackettstown, 30 days later it was towed in,Read More I had to buy a extended warranty because my one previous owner vehicle keeps breaking down, I have put several thousand into a vehicle that the dealership doesn't even want to buy back on a trade in.I wonder if they are the same owners or related to Honda 46. I have definitely been deceived on thus vehicles past maintenance and ownership.

For a snake expert to see the head and neck of a 14 foot snake and not able to grab it as it swamRead More past his leg, sounds like billable hours to me. I've owned and handled these snakes before and as an expert he should have been able to get the snake. If the snake wanted the man he would have went after him. I've had boas that would let a rat bite them without doing anything back. For the most part, these snakes will strike at you if they feel threatened, but will not kill for the heck of it. They kill to eat. Now granted a constrictor will throw his body around but if your not seen as prey they will not intentionally kill you. Doesn't seem as if he has much of a plan to capture the snake. Unfortunately it will probably be killed due to somebody else's irresponsibility!

John, its the truth. We have a large swath of the population that can't or won't work, and we are aRead More nation that demands cheap food. Part of that is labor costs. After all, we're a people that willingly handed its manufacturing industry over to China so we could buy cheap crap at Wal-Mart. Illegals are critical to cheap food, plain and simple. If you traveled out west (argi) or to the flyover states (meatpacking) you'd know this. I love the conspiracies you cite to combat cold, simple economic realities that have been in place since the middle of the 19th century. And good luck sealing the borders when every year we cut the budget, and then put sequestration in place, so that some Canadian senator somehow representing Texas can sell books.

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.

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.

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,

Thanks for the comment, Thomas Smith. Actually, our story was published before the one you postedRead More here, sent out as a breaking news alert and pushed through social media.

C'mon CC! What the heck does the Guv'nor have to do with allegations in a civil court case? Do youRead More want the Guv to be responsible for our trash pickup misadventures, too? The JS issues are natural disaster-related so, of course, that falls under Head-of-State purview. Potential corporate criminal matters are for our prosecutors to handle - ok? It seems a new national pastime to pile on CC for every ill or perceived pain in NJ. It's mostly public union driven aided by their willing accomplices in the msm, of course. Given that the prevailing lean economic times have finally caught up with the unrealistic bloated pensions and relatively short working careers of our "public servants," we real taxpayers shouldn't fall for their "death throw" histrionics. They need to wakeup and adapt to these economic times just like we did 2 decades ago....

busting people for possession of fireworks is idiotic. Why do we even have a law against it? Knee -Read More jerk reaction to idiots who don't know how to properly handle fireworks, making responsible people suffer...and another revenue grab for towns by issuing fines because they know people will defy the law and shoot off fireworks anyway. If it's one good thing the cops have done in recent years, its turn a blind eye to someone just having a little fun in the summer and lighting a few Roman candles or a mortar or two. You're really not hurting anyone, and as long as you follow instructions and don't go late into the night, it shouldn't bother anyone. $1000 worth is a little much but if he's doing it at an appropriate time, following safety guidelines, and doing it at an appropriate time of the evening who cares? screw permits, it's just another way to get money out of you for doing something fun
