Trenton Police Director Should Be Held Accountable

City Resident: Yesterday my cousin Carmen lost her eldest son to gun violence on Spring Street. My condolences to my cousin. My heart is broken for you.

As I drove through the City of Trenton I thought how? What do you see? Why aren’t we angry? She lost her baby, her son and IT COULD’VE been YOU or YOURS!! 

Where Is The Outrage?! Are we so accustomed to death happening around us that we can only be  thankful that it wasn’t one of our own? We must demand change! Now! Today!! Where Is The Police Presence? Not after a death! But for deterrence! Where is the Mayor and the Police Director?! We should be holding our City Officials accountable! We need police presence on our city streets; Spring Street! Stuyvesant Avenue! Centre Street! To name a few! When will our Police Director and/or Mayor hold a public conference and tell us what they are doing to make a real difference in the City Of Trenton? What is the plan? So far all we see are headlines of another lost life! I have questions that need answers!! The residents of the City of Trenton should be standing up and demanding change! 

We are losing our babies to the violence! Let’s go City Residents!!! Let’s demand change! Trenton Police Director where are you???? What are you doing for the City of Trenton??? I don’t know about you but I’m knocking on doors!!! The Mayor and The Police Director I’m knocking!!!

    Why would would you blame the police for an issue that the people of the community have to fix? I understand the outrage, but homicide is a community problem that requires the people of that same community to learn how to resolve conflicts without the use of gun violence. Homicide clearly displays the lack of love and compassion. Police being present in our neighborhoods to deter negative behavior is not the answer to a dilemma that has been plaquing our community for decades now.

    I love the way people as soon as it happens to someone they no they want to put blame police and mayor and Governor and only then do they start with let’s do this and let’s do that where was all that energy before it happened to someone they no or anyone for that matter I’m not saying that something shouldn’t be done and I’m sorry for the loss of all that are dealing with a tragedy but only now is when they call for the COMUNITY to do something how about all the others before didn’t they deserve someone to speak up for them so god bless us all
