[Reader Submitted] [Photos] Hi, thought this was interesting. It’s 11:20 PM in Lakewood in a quiet neighborhood. There happens to be a Shul on the corner (Kol Shimshon). The people run in quickly to daven (pray) and leave after a total of about 15-20 minutes. Two cars parked on 11th st. between Squankum Rd. and Lawrence Ave. on the wrong side of the street and facing the wrong direction.
A (white) police car pulls up and decides to write them tickets. A (dark – UEZ) police car pulls up and talks to the other cop and wonders why he just doesn’t move on…. The first cop stands his ground and refuses and continues issuing the tickets.
Now, I don’t know if anything should be made of this. They certainly were guilty. Maybe we shouldn’t think we should be allowed to get away with anything we want… But I really don’t understand the need for this. Follow through the patrol and continue. There is/was very little traffic at that time at night and maybe a warning could have been given. It’s different if this was in the morning when buses are rolling and people go to work etc. when it would certainly be a problem.
