Primary/Neighborhood Watch Meeting
The Primary for the IVB takes place Tuesday at your polling places, which are open from 6 am to 7 pm on February 24, 2009. If you want a competitive election, take an IVB ballot Tuesday and vote for Mayor O'Connor.
You can vote however you want in the April election, but to insure a real election in April, 2009, which is only six weeks away, take an IVB ballot on Tuesday the 24th. It will take you a minute at most, well worth the time.
Also, there is a Citywide Neighborhood Watch Meeting Monday, February 23, 2009, at 7 pm at the Police Station. Even if you are not a neighborhood watch captain, you can attend, and heck, you should be a neighborhood watch captain anyway. The theme of Monday will be a CSI demonstration, that is, a Crime Scene Investigation, plus, the Chief will give you all the details on the Baby Lindbergh kidnapping case from the 1930's. Did they have the right person?
Now, men and women, as I told you before, there are some cases in which a recommendation of mercy might do, but not this one, not this one. Either this man is the filthiest and vilest snake that ever crawled through the grass, or he is entitled to an acquittal. If you bring in a recommendation of mercy, a wishy- washy decision, yes, it is your province, I will not say a word about it. I will not say another word. But it seems to me that you have the courage. If you are convinced, as all of us are —you must find him guilty of murder in the first degree.
—David T. Wilentz, Attorney General of New Jersey, in his summation to the jury, February 13, 1935.
