Sad and disturbing. Are all politicians such cowards? Thank God that the
answer is "no". Payne, we will vote against you in large numbers, you
have crossed the line and as a consequence will lose your political seat
and power. You and the others who voted against our brother will reflect
upon your decision as a grievous career error.
A Cop who votes.
My hat is off to those brothers and sisters of the Newark P.D. and Fire
Dept. for standing firm in their support of Slain Philadelphia Police
Officer Dan Faulkner. As a former Philadelphia officer, I remember Danny
and that fateful day that his life was cut so short, without a doubt by
a racist/anarchist, malcontent by the name of Wesley Cook...aka.
Mumia-Abu Jamal. As long as there are those whom through propaganda and
lies, attempt to paint this murderer a hero, there will be those lovers
of justice who will expose those lies.

Bravo to the Newark PD and FD. New York PD and FD could learn a great
lesson from you. Like it has been said I'm sure, stick together because
in the end all you have is each other

Let us start with what we know. 12/9/81 P.O. Daniel Faulkner is murdered
in Philly by Wesley Clark, aka ABU J something or other. Payne supports
him. Giblin supports Payne. Any questions??? No Police pipe bands

Way to keep the faith Newark PD and FD and honor our fallen brother. God
Bless you all.

Stick Together.... We are all we have .......
God bless NJ's Finest and bravest
I do not understand why the majority of the letters protesting this
outrage of naming a street after a "Cop Killer" are signed anonymous.

The honoree of the parade has always been a person of Irish ancestry,
who was active with the parade and was never honored as the grand
marshal. The honoree has always been deceased. Payne is neither! Tommy &
the committee should be ashamed!
God Bless the Blue in Newark. As a once member of the Correction
officers in Jersey and now of NC. I'm proud of the officers in Newark
for standing by their brothers in Philly. I only wish the rest of the
depts in the US had the same sense of honor.
-Bob Link & Family
I hope all of our brothers in blue police & fire remember how we all
feel about those who don't support us, and don't ever forget those
killed protecting everyone.

Congressman Payne has never been noted for being 'Pro-Police', so I
wasn't really shocked to learn of his non-support of the Bill condemning
the naming of the street in France. I feel proud that the Newark Police
Officers and Firemen are taking a stance on this issue - naming
Congressman Payne as the 'Honoree' in this years Parade is controversial
to begin with....the 'Honoree' has ALWAYS been a deceased Irish-American
who gave his or her all to the community.
This is yet another example of 'Politics gone wrong' in Essex
County....however, politics aside, our memories today should be of a
'True Fallen Hero', Daniel Faulkner. We should keep him in our prayers

I would say that this has some effect on Congressman Payne's office.
When I tried to send a fax about just how I felt concerning his stand on
this issue, I found that the fax machine has been turned off.
So much for listening to the people.
Great job Newark PD and FD. Maybe this will get the point across. You
either support us or are against us. These politicians can't have it
both ways. Now remember this come election time.

It's a shame that it has to be this way, but at least we're sticking
