  1. Ms Emily, a member of our community was shot and killed with an illegal handgun near the housing authority. Where is the outrage, where is the protest?

    Oh this incident doesn’t fit your narrative. You would think with all the money Hoboken spends on the public safety administrators the streets would be safer from illegal weapons and illegal e-bikes.
