Is Jackson starting to target basketball hoops again? Or is it just Jewish-owned hoops?

This homeowner moved in to this Jackson home approximately four week ago.

The hoop on the property was reportedly cemented in for over five years, with the previous owner never receiving a violation.

Is he being targeted?

  1. You can check twsp records if previous owner got a ticket. If, in fact, he didn’t, you have a legit complaint although the twsp can always say the code enforcement officer never, uh, saw it.
    Chutzpah !!

  2. The violation says the hoop is cemented in the utility “Right Away”. There is no such thing. They probably mean the “Right OF Way.” I guess they were in such a rush to issue this, that they got it wrong!

  3. These acts of Antisemitism will not stop us “JO’s” or “us guys” from exercising our freedom to move to wherever we want. You can keep the tickets coming but it wont stop us. Good luck Haters!

  4. One question would be if any close by neighbors also have a hoop who are not Jewish and were not targeted… but I do have to say that sometimes these things get triggered by all the inspections and stuff that goes on around purchasing a home… and especially if they did any kind of licensed renovations and such. The last person it just never came to anyone’s attention… but this time it did. Also… it is possible that the township itself was not targeting him… but some neighbor or other party decided to report him because a Jew was moving in. That is different. That is not the township. The township would cite anyone they became aware of… but could be some hater goes around looking for these things when a Jew moves in. I can’t blame the township for that. I had an incident in Lakewood a while after I moved in about a shed. Turns out that a builder thought I reported him for something when I called him to complain about damage he did to my property. I had not.. but he then complained about a shed. Turned out the she had to be 30 feet from the street and as it so happened it was 29 and a half feet. They threw out the citation and officially approved it… for 2 reasons. First, they were good about half a foot post fact and were mot crazy enough to make that an issue. Second… the shed was on the plans filed with the township upon sale allowing us occupancy… so they said they should have caught it earlier. In fact… because of that… my insurance would have had to pay for the removal. Long story short, though… it does not necessarily mean the township is going after Jews… could be someone reported it and they act when it is reported. I do wonder, though… that if it was indeed cemented in and there for years… if any kind of inspections and such happened for his moving or any other reason and it was overlooked. That could be grounds for dismissal or at the very least that his insurance may cover any cost of removal of moving it.

  5. It’s now a Jewish hoop, so therefore a violation. Living in Jackson is a violation. The Mayor and his cronies were voted in again. That tells you where the people of Jackson’s heart is, regardless of what you friendly, none hateful smiling neighbors tell you.

  6. I don’t believe it is worthwhile dealing with the Mayor. he talks one way and acts another.

    The only two solutions are the courts (which includes complaints to the Justice Department and the State) and the hope that as our Jackson presence continues to grow, our voting bloc will grow and we will vote the haters out.

    Note, I hate the overbuilding that occurred in Lakewood and do not want that for Jackson. But I do want to live in peace in Jackson without religious harassment and currently, that’s what we are suffering.

  7. We had our hoop up for 5+ years and received a violation notice about 1-2 years ago. We live on a cul de sac. As the person above said it probably just got flagged due to home inspections. Stuff like this really happens to everyone. I know several folks who have sold and had all sorts of issues regarding things that were there and approved when they moved in.
