This is sickening. Hard working man murdered, just loses his wife several months earlier, working two jobs, is beaten, shot several times, robbed and has car stolen. Where is the outrage in this community? And he lived right around the corner from the mayor of Atlantic City! The cops need to find the animal who did this and pronto.

Yes it is terrible when some working person isn't safe in their home. Yes around the block from the mayor and from myself another hard working man. Find and prosecute. Its got to cease.

I think the police could do a better job. The police need to be more proactive, instead of waiting for something to happen before they do something. They wait and wait around, and they let little problems turn into big problems. And they always want you to sign a complaint, so they can get out of doing something. And then they turn around and say, "The crime rate is high". I think one of the reasons the crime rate is high is, because the police are doing a "half ass" job.
