Drive-by shooting Tuesday night caps weekend of gunplay


Elmwood Gardens, site of much gunplay.

Plainfield was given no holiday reprieve from gunfire and gunplay.

Reports of shots fired over the Christmas weekend were capped by getting word yesterday that Elmwood Gardens was once again the scene of violence.

Was told that two cars were in involved in a drive-by shooting incident overnight Tuesday, in which shots were fired at people outside one of the buildings, causing folks to scramble for cover in the snow.

No one was hit, but the crime scene unit found plenty of shell casings.

Why more violence? Could it be because nothing is being done about it?
There's more interest in the antics of the Mayor, The Council and other Honorable and Upstanding Individuals than in quality of life in the neighborhoods! And Oh,Yes . . . this is all taking place down by the projects, so . . . NO HARM!

What are you talking about Blackdog?

You mean to tell me that $20,000.00 dollars to the Reverend Al Sharpton for a 5 minute speech against violence wasn't a cure all to the gun violence within Plainfield? So therefore, let us the citizens of Plainfield be the blame? Especially since Sharon did such a great job during her first four years bringing violence down to a whopping unbelieveable unimaginable unrealistic THREE HUNDRED PERCENT???!!!

Aahhh geez . . . Can we get a refund? If not- then RECALL HER!!!
