The man pictured here is alleged to have assaulted and harassed a motorist at the K-Mart Shopping Center on Broadway in Westwood late this morning.
The victim alleges that the man was operating a Pensky rental truck in an unsafe manner in the K-Mart parking lot, and almost caused an accident with the victim’s car.
The victim further alleges that the man exited the truck, approached his vehicle making threats, and ultimately slapped the victim in the face through the driver’s side window.
The man then jumped into the Penske truck and fled the scene. The victim followed the truck and alerted the police via cell phone. The man led police
on a chase south on Broadway, through the center of Westwood, and ultimately appeared to get lost after turning off of 1st Avenue onto Prospect. The chase ended on Godwin Terrace in Westwood.
No fewer than four police vehicles arrived on the scene. However, the victim states that the local police didn’t appear to do anything except speak to the alleged assailant for a moment or so.
The victim feels that the local police should have done more. “Clearly the truck has an obstructed license plate, which is easily cause for a violation. But the police did nothing to this man who fled the scene.”
On information and belief, another truck, pictured here, and unknown person(s) ran interference to prevent the victim from following the alleged assailant. The license plate is Florida AZC-T05.
A call to Pensky confirmed that the alleged assailant’s truck was rented in the North Bergen area. The license plate is New Jersey XN-183T.
The victim states that he may pursue criminal charges against the man driving the Pensky truck, but concedes that the criminal justice system is flawed. “The kind of people you meet in the New Jersey courts–especially the judges and prosecutors–they are all corrupt.”
Regarding corrupt judges, there will be a statewide question on the Nov. 6 ballot asking voters to amend the New Jersey Constitution to require judges to contribute just like other public workers for their health and pension benefits. If voters approve this question, perhaps the New Jersey Legislature will take similar action to eliminate judicial immunity in this state. Absolute judicial immunity is a judicially fashioned doctrine that insulates judges from accountability for their actions, even when they act with malice. Judicial immunity erodes a judge’s motivation to act competently, and fosters misconduct and corruption.
