WORSER: 125 Cops Laid Off In Patterson, New Jersey

- By Bossip Staff

Paterson New Jersey police

This might not sound like a big deal to some of you. But please believe it is.

A quarter of the officers in the Paterson Police Department have been laid off.

There are now fewer cops in a city that just about everyone agrees needs more police.

On the streets of Paterson, things are not looking up in the eyes of some city residents.

“There’s a lot of crime,” said Nelsa Rodriguez, a Paterson resident.

Rodriguez is concerned that crime will spike.

“They’re will be more killing,” Rodriguez said.

The residents of one of New Jersey’s toughest towns are wondering what comes next, now that 125 cops have begun turning in their badges.

“Whatever it takes to bring them back we have to bring them back,” a resident said.

This would be bad news anywhere. But in a city where 25% of the population living below the poverty level?…

    Why not lay off cops from richer sections of New Jersey- like Princeton or Morris County? Its never actually about making the world a better place, is it? SMH

    My husband is one of the 125 that were laid off today. Our mayor was on Fox 5 news this morning saying that the PBA wouldn’t negotiate with them. What he is not really saying is that the PBA actually offered more savings than the governor offered. Christie is only offering money IF police are laid off.

    For a mayor to remove a quater of a police departement in a town where there’s so much crime and poverty is pretty much saying to the people that they are not worth protecting and that they are on thier own. It’s just not right. Aren’t police officers considered essential workers in times of crisis? Shouldn’t there be a law/provisions in place so that police officers are exempt from being layed off due to budget cuts/contract negotiations?

  • for the people

    Police don’t stop crime! If someone was going to murder someone, they don’t stop and think about the police. Maybe there will be a reduction of police brutality, police misconduct, and police destroying families by making up charges because of these cuts.

    Police don’t care about protecting the poor people anyway. They were not going to risk their lives to protect the poor people of Paterson.

    By-the-way, poverty does not cause crime!!!

  • Honut Sinti

    Just pitiful that is.

  • believethat

    1st step layoff 125 police officers mostly in low income areas.

    2nd alert media.

    3rd step, daily reports of escalating crime in urban / inner city areas.

    4th result, due to fears in suburban areas white will vote republican!!!

    *any questions???
