Trenton Turmoil - My9 New Jersey

Trenton Turmoil

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Sibile and Bill hit the streets of Trenton where another shooting took place.  This time, two police officers were shot and a man is dead after a domestic violence call turned deadly.  It happened on the corner of Olden and Hobart Avenue. 

Sibile was able to talk to the County Prosecutor who told her that as the suspect was leaving the home, the police officers came up and that's when the suspect shot both of them, one in the back and one in the shoulder.  Then, the police officers returned fire killing the man.

She also had the chance to speak with a reformed Trenton gang member who goes by the name, Almighty Blood Messiah.  He told her "that most people don't have anything else going on but the streets, and everything comes with the streets."

There was a letter to Governor Christie asking for 75 additional officers which was denied, and people in the neighborhood are hoping that these recent shootings will help change his mind.  However, a Minister who Sibile spoke with said "look at this situation in Trenton, and the police are not safe, how can the neighbors feel safe."

Back in the studio the Chasers discuss the best ways to help Trenton.  Some believe more police is the key, others feel that there may need to be a change in the local government.  Either way something needs to be done before these deadly encounters become the new normal for the people of Trenton.

    Fair Lawn, New Jersey Mayor John Cosgrove says that the town’s water tower is in desperate need of repairs, but it seems that a bird’s nest is the reason why construction hasn’t began yet. “It’s a $1.5 million project. We’re going to paint the tower, it hasn’t been painted in 18 years, so we were ready and thought we could get it done in the spring and be ready for summer and now we have to wait between four and six weeks because we have to wait until the hatchlings fly,” he explained.
