Report: Bill Cosby Got Slapped Across The Face With A Chicken Patty For Telling A Joke In Prison

Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby seems to be already making enemies with his fellow prison inmates as it is reported that he caught a chicken patty to the face for telling a joke another inmate did not find amusing.

According to Radar Online, while it was recently reported that Cosby has been forming a friendly rapport with some of his fellow inmates, not all seem to be frolicking towards him as he recently seemed to upset one, in particular.

Going on two weeks in the slammer for sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, the 81-year-old was slapped in the face with a chicken patty that was hurled towards him.

"Mr. Cosby cracked a joke to another inmate by his infirmary, and that inmate was mad enough to take his chicken out of the bun and plunge it at him," a source told the site.

Though random, this actually is not the first time within the short period that Cosby has been assaulted with food. Within minutes of arriving to his initial jail back in September, the former TV dad was allegedly slapped in the head with a stale hot dog bun.

"The way I see it, you have to be very angry to throw your meal in jail because I don't think you get seconds," the insider added. "Mr. Cosby told us last week that the chicken patty was the best meal he had so far at SCI Phoenix... so that says a lot."

New Jersey Attorney General and Jersey City to Collaborate on Statewide Directive Mitigating Marijuana Convictions

30-Day Postponement of all Marijuana Cases Statewide to be implemented immediately; Jersey City and Attorney General to jointly draft statewide directive on marijuana charges

 

JERSEY CITY – After a Monday meeting between Jersey City officials and The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office an agreement was reached on the path forward addressing Jersey City’s marijuana decriminalization policy and the Attorney General Office’s concerns.

 

Effective Tuesday morning, a memo was released to all 21 county prosecutors regarding a 30-day statewide adjournment of all marijuana charges and soon-to-be developed statewide guidelines with regard to downgrades and dismissal of simple marijuana offenses.

 

“This is a huge win for Jersey City, the state of NJ, and most importantly the people who would have been impacted by the creation of a criminal record due to a simple marijuana arrest,” said Mayor Fulop. “We are excited that Attorney General Grewal and Jersey City found common ground, avoiding the collateral consequences of convictions for marijuana possession while our great state is on the cusp of legalization,” Fulop Continued.

 

On Wednesday, July 18th, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop and Chief Prosecutor Jake Hudnut announced that the City would dismiss simple marijuana possession cases that come before the municipal courts or amend these charges to local ordinance violations, effectively decriminalizing marijuana in Jersey City. In addition to the racial inequalities and potentially life-altering consequences that stem from marijuana prosecution and conviction, there is a significant cost burden on local municipalities who oversee these charges. But on July 20, 2018, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal voided the policy. While Jersey City disagrees with the Attorney General’s interpretation of applicable law, the City respects the Attorney General’s action and his authority.

 

However, on Monday, in light of public support for the policy, Jersey City officials from the Municipal Prosecutor’s office, the Department of Public Safety, and the Law Department met with Attorney General Grewal to discuss how the objectives of decriminalization can effectively be implemented both in Jersey City and across New Jersey. As a result of this positive and productive meeting, Attorney General Grewal will convene a working group of criminal justice stakeholders this summer – including Chief Prosecutor Hudnut – to study this issue and advise the Attorney General on statewide solutions that achieve the same aims of decriminalization in accordance with existing state law and court rules.

 

“I took the job as Chief Prosecutor in Jersey City to help build a progressive, proactive, and thoughtful prosecutors office. We want to make sure that Jersey City is at the forefront of these conversations and I’m proud to have pushed this issue from the onset,” said Jersey City Chief Prosecutor Jake Hudnut

 

The directive will provide guidance on the appropriate circumstances warranting downgrade to local ordinance or outright dismissal of marijuana cases statewide. The aim of this directive will be to mitigate or eliminate the likelihood of disorderly person misdemeanor convictions for simple possession of marijuana while New Jersey is on the verge of legalization of marijuana, as well as the collateral consequences that come with those convictions. Collateral consequences include driver’s license suspension, criminal records, loss of student financial aid, bans from public housing, adverse effects on employment opportunities, and loss of immigration status.

 

In today’s memo, the Attorney General has further directed all municipal prosecutors throughout the state to seek adjournments of their pending marijuana cases until after September 4, 2018. This means that all open marijuana cases in the state’s municipal courts will be postponed until the Attorney General’s directive is issued and could effectively amount to a moratorium of – or a substantial reduction in – marijuana convictions in New Jersey between now and future legalization.

 

Said Chief Prosecutor Hudnut, “In adjourning all marijuana cases across New Jersey while a directive is prepared, Attorney General Grewal has put himself at the national forefront of progressive prosecutors. I am looking forward to working closely with him in the coming weeks on this directive, as well as on other issues affecting all of our state’s municipal courts. I believe that all of New Jersey’s municipal courts should exercise integrity and thoughtfully administer justice every day. In Attorney General Grewal, I have found a strong, progressive partner in that pursuit.”

New Jersey A.G. to Jersey City: no, you can't decriminalize pot
Updated 2:13 PM; Posted 1:39 PM

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City spent one day riding high on its new policy decriminalizing marijuana before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal told the city's new chief prosecutor on Friday that the policy is void because it violates state criminal laws.

The move represents a sharp rebuke from Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy's administration of Mayor Steve Fulop, a Democrat who nearly competed with Murphy for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2017. Fulop said Friday that the city believes it is in the right and will continue with the new policy.

"As a municipal prosecutor, you do not have the legal authority to decriminalize marijuana or otherwise refuse to criminally prosecute all marijuana­-related offenses in the municipal courts of Jersey City," Grewal told Jake Hudnut, the new prosecutor, in a July 20 letter. "The criminal laws of this state are enacted by the senate and general assembly, not determined by municipal prosecutors based on "(r)ecent public opinion polling."

Fulop and Hudnut announced this week that on Thursday the city would essentially stop prosecuting low-level marijuana offenders by instructing local prosecutors to downgrade those charges to misdemeanor-level offenses. They argued that doing so would further the cause of criminal justice reform, saying people of color are more likely to be arrested and prosecuted for marijuana possession than white people.

Man stabbed in buttocks and robbed by tent 'friends,' police say

By Ron Zeitlinger
The Jersey Journal

With friends like this, you don't need enemies -- but you sure could use an emergency room doctor.

A 57-year-old man described as homeless and living in a tent on Newark Avenue in Jersey City was stabbed and robbed Tuesday night by friends who he said also lived in the tent, Jersey City police spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

Police responded to Newark Avenue near Mary Benson Park at 7:50 p.m. and found the victim, who had been stabbed in the buttocks, left hand and left elbow, Wallace-Scalcione said.

The victim told police he was staying in the tent there with friends, and they attacked and robbed of an unknown amount of money. The man was taken to RWJBarnabas Health's Jersey City Medical Center and he was treated for his injuries.

Bergen-Lafayette / Re: Another drive by reevaluation?
« on: 06-28-2017, 09:23am »

so they randomly decided I have 3.5 bathrooms, baseboard heat and a finished basement>:(

 Why is baseboard heat even considered in a revaluation? Is it more fashionable than old school cast iron radiators? Is baseboard heat something only the rich and famous have? Or is it the other way around? Is baseboard heat only for the common hoi polloi working slob?  And if you do have baseboard heating, which type you have should be considered. The cast iron baseboard is quite expensive and far more luxurious than the cheap trashy tin fin tube style. For the record, I have a mix of old ornate radiators, newer slimmer radiators and trashy fin tube baseboard. I wonder how the revaluation man would classify me. It would be complicated, probably have to call in a supervisor.

Disease fatal to dogs on rise in North Jersey, report says

March 27, 2017 at 11:13 PM

PARAMUS-- Veterinarians say they have seen a marked increase in cases of leptospirosis, a bacterial disease carried by squirrels and rats, News 4 New York reported.

"We've probably had five or six cases of leptospirosis over the course of the winter," vet Tara Fetzer of BluePearl Veterinary Partners told the station, a "much higher" number of cases than normal.

The disease is transmitted by urine, which dogs may lap up from puddles while out for a walk. The illness is also potentially fatal to humans.

Experts believe cases are on the increase due to the mild winter, which has resulted in dogs spending more time outside.

Symptoms in dogs include fever, lethargy, loss of appetite and either an increase in urination or difficulty urinating. The disease can also pass from one dog to another.
