  • I’m a Paterson Born, former resident, for 3 generations. I remember when all of this was going on. I lived in the South Paterson section on Gennessee Ave. I went to the sister High School John Fitzgerald Kennedy High School. Our schools rioted each other which was not put in the movie and even this movie was edited cutting out some of the fighting between the main drug dealer and the principal Joe Clark in the bathroom. If I had the power and authority, Joe Clark, the Principal would of been promoted to a new office of Zar of all Schools first in New Jersey, then nationwide! Joe Clark is a true hero giving the students Hope, Desire, Trust, and Love for each and every student he taught! God Bless you Joe Clark where ever you are! This goes to show how corrupt government can truly be. Sad thing is this happens in every community across this nation. The projects the students lived in were built under former Mayor Kramer which my father working for Frank McBride, built those projects, known as the Christopher Columbus Projects AKA CCP. It was so bad there, with the drug dealers living there on the top floors controlling everything as it was their headquarters, for years, even the taxi cab companies I worked for many years later, all the drivers which I was one, until I became a partner in South Paterson Taxi, we all feared going there as the drug dealers and other tenants would stage us to get robbed. As the construction was being done, the copper pipes were ripped out and sold for scrap several times. My dad’s crew actually feared going back to work there. My dad also built the Nabisco cookie manufacturing company on Route 208 in Fairlawn NJ, and Willowbrook Mall, and many other large buildings and companies throughout NJ. I now live in another state and city that has become just as bad as the high crime rates of the city of Paterson, Chester Pennsylvania. I wish we all learn from the past, learn to love one another as brothers and sisters that we all truly are, and grow to help each other and stamp out crime and live in harmony.
