  1. To number one, yes it may be nice to think that but the reason it’s being held on Saturday is because it’s his one year anniversary and you can’t have a candle light vigil in the day time. But it is great hat it works out so well and is being held after shabbos so ALL Lakewoods residents can attend . Hope to see everyone there

  2. #1 & #3: You are made for each other. Of course #3 is acting in an official community relations capacity. NOT. Clear it with the brass next time. Why dignify a #1 with a response in the first place LPD officer or not? The Chief already gave his statement on behalf of the LPD.

    For G-d’s sake people can’t we even come together when a cop is murdered? Moment of silence is in order #1 & #3.

    Apparently not and you are also to blame.

  4. Why can’t you people who write for the scoop refere to town square as town square not red square. The article in the newspaper (APP) refered to it as town square which is the true name of the center of town. Lets keep some things the way it has been for years. Hope a large crowd turns out to remember Officer Matlosz.

  5. it has been called red square for 20+ years . and i will be at RED SQUARE saturday night , you can go to town square number 7 where ever that is

  6. To all: There is no room for bickering as we commemorate the life of fallen LPD Officer Matlosz. Please keep in mind that all Lakewood residents need to come together to respect and honor the memory of one of Lakewood’s Finest.

  7. Town square is in the middle of town,next to police headquaters. How long have you lived in Lakewood #8? If the bricks put in there were yellow would you call it yellow square?
