Police Farce: NJ Governor Asked to Shut Down Corrupt Police Department

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been asked to shut down the NJ Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department that, not surprisingly, has jurisdiction up to the scandal-ridden George Washington Bridge.....

The jurisdiction of the Palisades Interstate Parkway "police" force ("PIP PD" covers about 11.2 miles of roadway from the George Washington Bridge, north through Bergen County New Jersey, to the New York border.

If you ever want to have your own corrupt, but very lucrative, police department, follow the model of the NJ Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department.  Its current existence was truly inspired by the TV show Mayberry RFD.   This needless "police force" was created after New York and New Jersey formed the Palisades Interstate Park Commission in 1900, and a bunch of old hacks wanted to appoint some friends to a "police force," along with, of course, them being able to present each other with shiny badges and various ranks for mutual saluting.

Portions of the Palisades Interstate Parkway that run through New York State are patrolled by the New York State Police, but apparently the highly-regarded New Jersey State Police aren't capable of handling the 11-mile section of roadway that runs through New Jersey.  This section of road in New Jersey needs its own "specialized" group of "law enforcement," that requires a wasteful hierarchy of taxpayer-funded salaries and, please hold the chuckles, administrative support- and their very own "court."  One person who signed a petition to disband the hapless "law enforcement" group described the PIP court as right out of the 1992 movie classic, My Cousin Vinny, while others have described the police force as adequately trained for a Police Academy movie.

PIPPD boasts a "force" of 27: One Chief, Two Lieutenants, Five Sergeants, and 19 patrolmen.

A petition to eliminate the PIPPD was created las year, prompting tales of horror stories of improper police actions that would make Andy, Floyd and Barney Fife of Mayberry RFD proud.  New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, however, has long ignored the waste of the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department, just like his predecessors.

One petition signer wrote that the PIPPD were "not police but PIRATES...." Another described the PIPPD officers as "lying and corrupt criminals," and detailed how one cop caused a 2nd automobile accident that injured 4, while responding to a 1st accident.

Hardly a police force, but most definitely a police farce !!

This situation in New Jersey is very sad and disturbing. It's going on all over, no doubt! If we can't get leaders like Christie to put an end to it what are we to do?
