Christie on patrol

The governor-elect is expected to take to the streets of Newark tonight and join Mayor Cory Booker and an assortment of volunteers in “patrolling the wards of Newark.”

At least. that is how Christie’s press office put it. It added that, “The goal of Community Caravan Night Patrols is to disrupt normal crime patterns and to get the local community engaged in the crime prevention process.”

The patrol musters up at 7:30 p.m. at the Central Ward Firehouse at 191 Orange Street.

    Will Sheriff Kim Guadagno join them, or is she still too scared to walk the streets at night?

    I’ll bet he does his patrol in the Ironbound section so he can protect the restaurants and pastry shops from street thugs.
