  1. and we will spend a fortune of money to catch this crook, after which someone will decide that the crook is mentally ill or has no business being in this country in the first place (illegal immigrant who is ‘exempt’ from our laws?)so why are we bothering to search for him (it?) in the first place?

  2. A white male who robbed two banks in Toms River on Tuesday while wearing a surgical mask has been apprehended by the police, according to dubious and uncomfirmed sources.
    The surgical-masked-robber reportedly told police that he was a surgeon, who was in the midst of performing surgery earlier today when he realized he did not have all the surgical supplies that were needed to perform the surgery.
    “So I drove down to the bank and asked the teller to withdraw whatever cash I had left in my bank account, so I could purchase the necessary supplies,” the surgical-masked, self-described surgeon told police. “But it wasn’t enough cash. I still needed an additional $30,000 to purchase all the necessary supplies. Time was of the essence, so I kindly asked the bank teller to fill up a bag with an additional $30,000 cash and to lay down on the floor face down. I warned him not to call the police until I called him back and informed him that the surgery was successful.”
    “I then proceeded to rob a second bank when I realized I still needed more cash to purchase some anesthetics, because we had run out of the sleeping drug,” he said.
    “Unfortunately, the cops nabbed me before I had a chance to return to the patient to perform the surgery,” he said. “I hope he’s okay. He was in extreme pain from an impacted wisdom tooth that needed to be extracted, and I’m pretty certain I was the only oral surgeon available in the office to perform the surgery.”

  3. Wow Bubby they said a WHITE man not a brown skinned person smh I take it then, you don’t have an illegal cleaning your house or watching your children? You don’t eat at establishments that have illegals cooking or serving your food? I didn’t think so not all illegals are bad people

    • Correction:
      I guess the cops are too busy coming to all the different accident scenes all over Lakewood. If we finally finally put down that phone while we are driving, then yes, then the cops will have lots of extra time to focus on protecting our banks.
      I will tell you a little secret. The Lakewood Scoop does not report on every single accident. Some are minor and some are major. The Police must show up to all accidents, especially an electric pole smashed. Only a few days some of the traffic lights were not working. The police were there to help out.

    • There is not a single study showing that tickets are an efficient deterrent. In fact, multiple studies, including one done by the NIH shows the opposite.
      It’s all about money.
      Have a Ksiva VeChasima Tova!

  4. #1 i dont have any illegals of any color working for me at all or ever. #2 if any of these people are cooking in any of the places in which i eat, then we have a bigger and worse problem with kashrus than with illegals. #3 i worked with normal black people for many years. they wanted their children to be kind and honest, to do well in school. to get good jobs good wives and to give their parents whatever the trans. they were normal and wanted whatever the english translation is for nachas’.the whole story of this man claiming he is a surgeon who ran out of necessary things in the middle of an operation is not believable
