Hoboken411 and the Hoboken Police Department's curious coincidences


 Since a Jersey City judge's arrest warrant for one Perry Klaussen of Hoboken411, the de facto head of the Mason Media Complex has taken on his fantasized enemy, anyone connected to Mayor Dawn Zimmer to a whole new level.  He's attempting to collect evidence of parking violations on Councilman Cunningham's family and going after the Hoboken Parking Utility's very successful Director Ian Sacs, again.

That's not the end of it either, not by a long shot.

Monday night, two police officers in downtown Hoboken came out of a deli near City Hall and seeing Batman and Robin dressed in full regalia on the street called them over.  

For what reason?

According to Rory Chadwick who does bicycle runs around town with Batman, the police asked for identification.  Then they asked if Chadwick had ever been arrested and then told him that there may be arrest warrants out on him.  Chadwick was sure there must be a mistake but the information on his name was run and indeed there was violations outstanding.  

Parking in the crosswalk violation was one - from Jersey City.

Actually there were two violations, one for parking in crosswalk in Jersey City and another for an illegal u-turn in Weehawken.  When?  Apparently the tickets were issued nine and eleven years ago.

The police take in Rory Chadwick and detain him.  They handcuff him to a bench while "Batman" goes home to get his wallet so he can be processed and go home.  

At 9:20, Rory Chadwick is being processed for release but a tweet from Perry Klaussen on twitter is already out forty minutes before Chadwick's is even done with his paperwork.  He's in the Hoboken Police Department and Perry Klaussen ALREADY HAS THE INFORMATION.

Here it is:

Hoboken411 ran this tweet of an arrest of Rory Chadwick on a traffic and parking violation even before his release.
Who in the Hoboken Police Department is working with Perry Klaussen?

Now does it strike anyone as odd that Perry Klaussen who has been seen in recent days walking around in Hoboken with an open bench warrant for his arrest is issuing tweets about the arrest of someone who filed a criminal coercion complaint against him announcing their arrest on a parking violation?

Who in the Hoboken Police Department is working with Perry Klaussen?

No member of the public can run a name and obtain information on a traffic/parking violations but someone in a police department can.

When did the Hoboken police department start hunting down residents on the street for traffic/parking violations not even in Hoboken?

Why was Rory Chadwick approached and arrested on the street by Hoboken Police?

These are all good question for Hoboken's Police Chief Falco.

Who is helping him in the Hoboken Police Department?

The leaks of confidential information on a discrimination case against the Hoboken Police Department to Hoboken411 has most certainly attracted the attention of the FBI as a separate part of the massive Data Theft Conspiracy investigation.

There's a pattern of information finding its way in record time to Hoboken411 outside of the official process established under Chief Falco.  How does confidential information find its way there over and over again, even as legal and mayoral staff at City Hall don't know such privileged information?

One similar story is here:

More grist for the FBI mill.

Talking Ed Note: Hoboken has many outstanding legal cases open with dozens of lawsuits.  Is there about to be another one added to the list?  There's going to be some legal phones ringing Tuesday in the am.

Now that Hoboken411 has avoided arrest from a Jersey City judge's bench warrant, how long before he now has a hit piece on the distant past of Rory Chadwick.

Is any of this a coincidence?

In Hoboken, Sen. Lautenberg, Sen. Menendez, Congressman Sires and Secretary Lahood back Surface Transportation Bill for NJ

The Office of Senator Frank Lautenberg announces:


Call on House to Join Senate in Passing a Bipartisan Transportation Bill

HOBOKEN, NJ—Today, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood stood with U.S. Senators Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and U.S. Rep Albio Sires (D-NJ-13), urging the House of Representatives to follow the Senate’s lead and move quickly to pass a bipartisan transportation jobs bill.  Last week, an overwhelming bipartisan majority in the Senate passed the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act,” a surface transportation bill which will create or maintain 2.8 million jobs nationwide.  Speaking at the Hoboken Train Station, the federal officials were joined by New Jersey transportation advocates to stress the importance of the legislation, which would provide New Jersey with $500 million for transit projects and $1 billion per year in highways funds.

The Senate transportation bill, which was approved last Wednesday by an overwhelming 74-22 margin, would relieve road congestion, expand transit and rail systems, and direct billions to American workers rebuilding the nation’s aging infrastructure.  The legislation is particularly important for New Jersey, where it would support 54,200 jobs in a state economy powered by regional transportation systems.  New Jersey commuters would get immediate relief through restoration of the commuter tax benefit, which allows mass transit riders to set aside an untaxed $240 monthly to pay for commuting costs.

“I’m thrilled that the Senate has passed a bipartisan transportation bill that will put millions of Americans back to work repairing our aging transportation infrastructure,” said Secretary LaHood.  “If the House follows their lead, we can relieve congestion on our roads, expand our transit and rails systems, and provide Americans with safe, affordable ways to reach their destinations when gas prices are high."

“House Republicans should back away from the extreme Tea Party ideology and pass the Senate transportation bill that will rebuild our nation's crumbling transportation systems and put millions of American to work,” said Sen. Lautenberg, Chairman of the Commerce Subcommittee on Surface Transportation.  "In New Jersey, we need this bill to help reduce traffic congestion, benefit transit commuters, and boost our economy.  Funding for America's transportation system expires at the end of the month.  It's time for the House GOP to complete this bill so we can keep people on the job rebuilding America's infrastructure."

"This bill represents years of bipartisan work to invest in our infrastructure, create good jobs for New Jerseyans and give us the transportation network we need for our workers to get to their jobs, for our families to meet their needs, and for our businesses to thrive," said Senator Menendez.  "The toughest work is done.  The Senate’s acted to create jobs and keep commuters moving.  Now it’s time for House Republicans to get on board and do their part for New Jersey."

“I am pleased that the Senate passed this bill, which will provide important funding for our country’s transportation needs,” said Rep. Sires.  “I hope my colleagues in the House will create jobs and keep commuters moving. Now it’s time for House Republicans to get on board and do their part for New Jersey.”

Tim Occhipinti schooled on legal work, questioned on his "compromises"

The budget hearing Saturday lacked a full quartet of MORTe but don't think grandstanding and political attacks were missing with half their team out.  Tim Occhinpinti filled in although the results were not exactly what MORTe would have in mind.

Tim Occhipinti looked to point the finger at the Administration for an increase in legal costs of about $1.1 million in recent years to $1.9 million currently anticipated.  He cites employee terminations and the mayor's failure "to compromise" as part of the problem.  After all, MORTe may talk a good game about taxes but their top constituents are city employees.  Although Occhipinti didn't go as far as Councilwoman Terry Castellano mentioning names at  recent council meeting on active legal lawsuits against the City, he carried on the position by politicizing the cases collectively to attack the mayor.

Councilman Dave Mello counters the claim pointing to the facts in a chart presented on the legal costs to the City showing that between land use, redevelopment and rent control, the City's legal costs take up 50% of the pie.

Not seen in the video is a point Councilman Mello later makes regarding Tim Occhipinti attending a public meeting about NJ Transit on development downtown but instead of looking at possible models created and listening to the public, Occhipinti ignored both and choose to remain with NJ Transit officials for the entirety of the event.  Mello notes that compromising with NJ Transit would mean a shadow of skyscrapers over southern Hoboken.

MSV reported the exclusive story where unlike other council members who attended, and joined with the public at tables to look at possible designs and share ideas, Occhipinti ignored the public altogether and hung out with NJ Transit officials who did exactly the same.

That story, "Sign of the Times: NJ Transit, the constituent that matters most," appeared on MSV last June.

Here's a short video clip from Saturday's meeting:

Does anyone remember the first time Tim Occhipinti appeared before the City Council to denounce others for not being willing "to compromise?"  Here's Tim Occhipinti reading a prepared and approved Peter Cammarano speech where he calls returning zoning board appointments back to the City Council "a power grab."  Those words were the exact ones used by the convicted felon Peter Cammarano prior to the July 2009 council meeting.

Even more humorous is Occhipinti urging the "Council needs to work together as a whole."
His idea of compromise these days is to take his marching orders from the Beth Russo hydra and enlist the council majority to join in their sabotage against the City.

Talking Ed Note: This July 22nd, 2009 video clip comes courtesy of the Wiley Coyote, Eric Kurta.  While no one would confuse Tim Occhipinti with Peter Cammarano, the Old Guard game remains the same.  Find new faces that look palatable and non-threatening who are willing to sell out Hoboken and fall into line.  Just like Tim Occhipinti.

With another election in spring of 2013, they are already jockeying to do so.  This as Peter Cammarano was arrested, convicted, sentenced and served a reduced prison term.

The Old Guard didn't even pause during any segment of the sordid affair.  There's a city treasury just waiting for them to pillage and plunder.  One thing you have to respect, they keep their eye on the prize and they always follow the money - by hook or by crook.

Tim Occhipinti (l) speaking with NJ Transit's John Leon as a table in the background was one of several where residents shared ideas on the different aspects of a potential redevelopment.  Occhipinti ignored them.
