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.

    For many, the conflict between Israel and Palestine hits close to home. Yesterday a rally took place outside of the United Nations building in New York City and people from both sides were on hand to voice their concerns about the ongoing airstrikes. New Jersey’s Rabbi Gross discussed the fact that many of his former students, after graduation, decided to join the Israeli Defense Force and are now immersed in the fighting.

    The Bergen County Sheriff's Department is proposing to militarize their police force! This involves them wanting an MRAP, which is a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle. This vehicle is actually used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the military this isn't unheard of. Recently, the US government has given these vehicles away to law enforcement departments all over the country.
