It's not the mayor, it's the cops. Apparently someone forgot to tell them their job was law enforcement. Seriously, they literally give no traffic tickets at all. You can do whatever you want in front of a cop here and they'll see nothing. They have their windows tinted as dark as the drug dealers so you can't even identify the officer that just ignored a guy that blew a stop and nearly hit you. Report a crime and you get a couple of roided up skinheads who can barely control their eyerolls and contempt for anyone who chooses to live here instead of down the shore like them.

Yeah the only thing worse than a do-nothing cop is do-whatever-the-f**k-they-want cop.

Used to see the JCPD on the TV show Cops. They seemed ok but no telling how old those particular shows are

How’s the thread go from painting wheels to cops suck. Why don’t you guys move? By the way, what’s wrong with the wheels on the truck? 

Even I know better than to question why someone wants to pimp their ride! I see nothing wrong with the wheels either, but I'm a city boy who doesn't 'identify' with my car. It's a tool, you'd as likely find me adding gold leaf to my pliers or hammer.

As for my city, I could go on all day on why JC is better than some suburb. No place is perfect, but that should not stop one from staying there and wanting to improve it.

From what I see in JC it’s getting better, and more expensive, all the time. I’m guessing your beef is not actually with the police officers but the jackwagens you guys in NJ elect who define what the police should and should not do. 
 

I’ve never bought wheels that didn’t come with a car. I’ve never heard of buying wheels and paining them. I guess that means I’m an old curmudgeon.
