  1. Oy vey iz mir I don’t understand, What does a knife have to do with basketball? Why would a knife be of importance on the playing field? You can’t throw a ball with a knife? I mamash don’t understand. Bechlal this whole knifing business

  2. #10 you obviously have know idea about police work, traffic stops are the most dangerous thing a cop can do regardless of being catholic, jewish or any religion

  3. We all know that Lakewood is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. People are scared to even look out their windows for fear of being blown to pieces, let alone walking outside without heavy police protection. People are being shot and stabbed every day in Lakewood.

    We need to hire thousands of police officers to protect the innocent civilians in this town.


    Thank you LPD for being there for us.

  4. What’s the peshat of stabbing someone? Does not that person think? Does not that person know that stabbing could kill a person? And if the intention is to kill then he a killer and should not be between people, he should be in a cage like an animal and throw away the keys

  5. yes, that’s genius. close down the basketball court so the local kids will have one less thing to do in this town and be even more bored and possibly get into more fights. smart.

  6. 16- racial/ethnic/religious profiling is illegal. And you just never know- I mean no disrespect, but there are Jewish criminals.

  7. If it were not for bad news in this town there would be no news ~ thats all you hear and read about almost every day ,how sad used to be a decent place to live ~ not any more .you have to wonder about the leadership in this town it has to fall on their shoulders they are the ones who make the decissions that affect all who live here and lately (for a few years now) Lakewoods reputation and well deserved has been really bad

  8. to Anonymous says: says:

    FACT:NEWS IS ALWAYS BAD cause noone cares that someone won the lottery or someone is takimg a trip etc… WAKE UP TO LIFE

    BEST ADVICE for everyone: stay away from the news in all ways & open yourself an opportunity to a life of happiness

  9. #18 Lkwd is far from being one of the worst “cities” in the world. It doesn’t even come close to being in the top 50! If you are that scared, move.
    #20… good point and so very true. Sadly, it doesn’t serve the same purpose as it used to. Too many people moved into the area and use it.

  10. This smells like gang activity. Get rid of the gangs and violent crime will be reduced in direct per-portion to the reduction of criminal gang members.

  11. good move—-close the center, take away the basketball court. I’m sure that will slove the problem!

    what’s wrong with people…. please think before you speak!!
