  1. I’m amazed at how people could make a living out of ruining other people financially. These traffic stops cost citizens big bucks in terms of cost of the ticket itself and the rise in insurance premiums. Don’t tell me that these are tzadikim who have come to keep us safe.

  2. Because the local police won’t do its job, sky high motor vehicle accidents, terrible driving behavior. Someone’s got to do it….

  3. “Oh my G-D,” said one Lakewood resident upon reading the now-eerily familiar, ominous 4 word headline on TLS that stated: ‘They’re back in Town!’
    “Quick, everyone, close all the windows, lock all the doors, close all the lights, and let’s head downstairs to the basement,” the Lakewood resident whispered to the rest of his family. “Did you hear what I just said?! Go downstairs now! And I mean, now!””
    “Where’s the dog?” he asked. “Is Spotty home? Is he okay?!”
    “Don’t make a sound or a peep, till the troopers leave town,” he told his family members, as they huddled underneath the couch in the back room in the basement. “Everything will turn out okay, it always does. Just take some deep, slow breaths, and keep your volume down, as low as you can.”
    “Can I go upstsairs and peek through the windows, and see if they left already?” asked the man’s 5-year old son a few minutes into the frightening affair.
    “No, not yet! Do you want to get yourself killed?!” the man replied. “Just hunker down and keep quiet until the dust settles. Do you understand me?!”
    Sources say, the man and his family are still hunkered underneath the couch in the basement, but they managed to text out an order of pizza, potato knishes and french fries for the entire family.
    “Make sure you arrive at the back door, and knock quietly,” the man texted to the pizza delivery guy. “Your tip will be sitting on top of the bushes about 5 feet from the back door. Shhhhh….. Thanks a lot. And please make sure there’s enough packets of ketchup for all 5 of us down here. Thanx.
    Man, am I hungry! Shhhhh……”

  4. This is one of the all time dumbest comments. Yes, laws are made to keep you safe. The individual officer is doing his job, implementing the laws that were designed to keep you safe. They may be tzadikim, they may not be. Same can be said of you or I. But the inherent job that they are doing is just. If you are ruined financially it is your irresponsible behavior, and your own doing. You break the law you take the risk. Don’t whine after and blame the officer. Agav, many of whom do or would put their life on the line when called upon.

  5. They pull people over, and then decide what they need to be ticketed for. I was watching one trooper in an unmarked black SUV on Rt 9 between Central Ave and Main Street today. He pulled one person over, and as soon as he was finished, spun around and pulled another car. He did this for over 2 hours straight.

  6. No, I’m not happy when the NJSP come to town. However, I’m still shocked at how many people I see still holding their phones while they drive. That’s mamesh a Sakanah. A Bluetooth or wired headset are so cheap these days. There’s absolutely no excuse why ANYONE should be talking on a phone held in their hands. I’m sorry.

  7. I hate to say it, but I fall on the side of those who believe that they come here and act like vultures. Putting lives on the line is not in Lakewood. In other places they might get shot for this behavior, here we pay and suck it up. No risk to them. Yes, if there was a fire they would run in, no, they do not justly enforce the law.

    Personally, I got a cell ticket for scratching my beard from one of them a few years back. I installed a dual camera dashcam. Next time they will have to prove it in court.
