I had know idea waiting for gas in a line of 100 cars, during these times when there is a storage that a police officer would walk up to you and scream at you and make you move your car. I didn't get his badge number but that was total uncalled for. I understand if I was blocking traffic. I was 7Th in line on the shoulder just about to run out of gas when I was screamed at. He then went to each car and did the same. Patience is what will get us through all of this mess. For a patrol officer to do what he did was absolutely ridiculous, and offending.

Please don't get me wrong I have the utmost respect for the Police Department and everyone wearing our uniform, you guys are doing an incredible job, but its time for that one officer to go home. Hopefully someone got his name and badge number. It wasn't that it bothered me so much, but the lady behind me had kids in her car.

can you guys at patch please get these ridiculous spammers off of this website? they are all scam websites that are robbing YOUR users, and it doesnt seem like you guys care.

You would be wrong about that, Stephen. The minute we find one, they change computers and e-mail addresses and hit us from another direction. They're pernicious. And keep in mind that we are trying to report the news at the same time; we have only so many hands, if you get my meaning. It is simply impossible for us to read every comment as it comes in. Our technical crew has been alerted to the problem and we are working as best we can to stop these frustrating occurences. And trust, they frustrate us more than they frustrate you.

I am not a scumbag spammer, I was telling my experience of what happened, other people posted on Parsippany Police FaceBook page about the same thing. Go look that's if they haven't been deleted by now. There were 2 cops giving different instructions, the 1 cop was feed up and was literally screaming at people. We were following what the other cop told us to do. Just if your curious I lived in Parsippany all my life and proud to be a member of this town. I volunteer as much as possible. I have donated money to the Fire Departments and Rescue Recovery, and sponsored a couple of police officers for the Police Unity Tour
