  1. erick i like your nikon camera it looks like from the pro line, how abour going into part time photojournalist like Detective Wexler

  2. The 5 mile run for the fallen officers is going to be on a Saturday? Is it possible to push it off a day (Sunday)? A lot of members from the Jewish orthodox community may wish to participate in the 5 miles run, and show our support. Lakewood very rarely holds running events for the many beneficial causes. An entire group of people who reside in Lakewood, may feel left out.

  3. NJ must remember the POETRY NIGHT hosted by the White House 5/10/2011 where one of the guests was the rapper, Common. He wrote a song in salute to Assata Shakur, who executed Trooper Werner Foerster with his own gun in 1973.

  4. Is that a serious suggestion? Do you know anything about these kinds of fundraisers? It takes a lot of time, money, and support to hold such an event. A lot more than a single individual is needed to host such a function. I respect and am in awe of those who make these fundraising events. I do not have the resources, nor do I have the time and money to “create” my “own” event. That being said, I still like to participate and support these important causes.
    Oh well.
