PATERSON, NJ — Bordering suburban police unfairly targeting Paterson-bound drivers for various violations was called a "pervasive problem" by Paterson Councilman-at-large Ken Morris on Wednesday in the trial of Councilwoman Vera Ames-Garnes, charged with wrongly interfering when a Prospect Park police officer stopped a motorist in her city.
"Residents felt they had been unfairly targeted by neighboring towns," Morris testified before Hawthorne Municipal Judge John Meola. "My constituents have approached me personally about this issue and all nine council members," he said.
