When does someone who firebombed 4 synagogues even get bail set? Former student? Are you aware thatRead More the 9/11 hijackers where in the US on "student" visas? What needs to be fixed is the visa system that allows vile terrorists into the US, the criminal justice system that allow vile crap like this to be provided protections under the Constitution when they aren't citizens and life to destroy to US, and liberal "news" media outlets and "reporters" like the writer of this article that look to assist in that destruction by reporting with a sympathetic point of view. The bail system isn't broke, it's working just fine.

Am I mis reading this??? If he hadn't firebombed a synagogue he wouldn't be sitting in jail. BailRead More was high because he is a danger to the community or a skip out of the country risk. I don't feel sorry for him to his family in this particular case.

Every time I think the Patch cannot post something dumber than the previously dumb article, theRead More editor pulls a rabbit, this case rabbi, out of his bungalow with an article such as this. Keep up the good work Patch; you're sure to surpass Yahoo News as leader of dumb dumb articles.

Meanwhile there are laws that require new homes be fit with separate firesuppression systemsRead More increasing prices by30% minimum. Perhaps cutting down on the $100K+ administrators and dead wood could help subsidize the costs instead of continually going back to the gifthorse taxpayers. As to punishment, people screwup in life, perhaps 30-60days LWOP or something which will deter this in the future. This may have been a blessing in disguise as above mentioning this may have avoided children being killed where a circuit overloads(w breaker failing to trip) and burns building to ground.

It is just over fourteen years since the tragic dorm fire at Seton Hall claimed the lives of threeRead More students, and injured many more. As a result of that fire, the NJ Legislature introduced bills to require sprinkler systems be installed in all college dorms in NJ, (http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/index.ssf?/news/ledger/stories/setonhallfire/fire03.html). Unfortunately, the legislation did not address K-12 schools. Both mrszzano and David make very valid points about the costs of retro-fitting schools with fire suppression system. But in today's world of technology, the costs of doing that may not be as restrictive as some think. In that connection, every school board in the state should conduct studies on installing modern fire suppression in schools and school district offices that currently lack them. Those studies should then be presented to the districts taxpayers for consideration. The most cost effective installation could and should be phased in the school districts budgets. When all aspects of a school district's budget are considered (actually the CAFR {Certified Accounting Financial Record} are far better to see where the money really went), what expenditure(s) are more sacrosanct than the safety of a child or those that educate them? P.S. CAFR's can be obtained from the school district by submitting an OPRA (Open Public Records Act) to the district. Ask for it in an electronic format, usually a pdf, as there are no reproductions cost to the requester, when done in that manner.
mrszzano March 30, 2014 at 10:52 am
I agree, Tom, that the safety and interests of the children should be utmost on anyone's agenda.Read More However, unfortunately financial restraints sometimes require that some projects be postponed. One can only hope that safety issues are not the ones being postponed. And even though everyone is (obviously) onboard with keeping our kids safe, when it comes time to vote on the budget, some people only see the numbers. That's why so many school buildings are crumbling, and systems are outdated. It's sad, but until money goes where it should, all we can rely on is common sense and constant vigilance on the part of the schools' staffs.

He died of blunt force trauma, authorities said. Prosecutors did not elaborate on what allegedly happened between Puskas and McCaw, but a spokesman said the preliminary investigation indicated they did not know each other.

I am a volunteer firefighter in a wealthy Bergen county township, I have being volunteering for 5Read More years now and have training on the state and federal level. My town has a 100% volunteer fire department and a 100% ambulance corps. Each are very very dedicated, trained well, and are well respected throughout northern NJ for our services. However the biggest issue is man power during working times due to the fact we work jobs out of the area (I work at a hospital in central jersey). At any given time during the day you can have 2 guys show up to a call or 15, its hit or miss. Night time and weekends that's a different story because people are around. Same thing with our ambulance corps, they have a duty crew but if the duty crew is on a run when something else comes in during the day odds are another rig isn't getting out. Going 100% paid wont happen due to the fact that it would be too much money to pay to staff a fire truck and ambulance 24/7. However another option to look into is having a half paid half volunteer fire/ems department. You can have 2 FF/EMTS on a fire engine and a paid EMT driver on the ambulance during the day supplemented by volunteers. An example is if you have a Fire Alarm you already of a driver and FF on the Fire engine and now the first vollies come in you roll the truck 2-4 minutes faster due to the staffing at the fire house. Another example you now have an EMS ca,ll ambulance goes along with a fire engine with its FF/EMTS on it so now you have 3 EMTS on scene ( 2 from the fire truck 1 from the ambulance) and the vollies can also respond to help package and transport the patient. I feel that most of the state will never be paid but with the growing population in the state and the lack of volunteering in the emergency services I can see a half volunteer half paid happen. But this is just my opinion for my own town....Cheers

But yeah.....I think towns should pay for these things.
