On Thursday, April 29, 2021, around 1:10 AM, Jersey City Police Department (JCPD) Officer Brandon McWayne initiated a motor vehicle pursuit of a Chrysler 300 suspected of being involved in a shooting earlier that night.

During the course of that pursuit, McWayne, assigned to the JCPD Street Crimes Unit and operating an unmarked vehicle, accelerated past the suspect's car and cut it off at the intersection of Bergen and Oxford Avenues.

After jumping out of the vehicle, McWayne discharged his firearm, then quickly got back in the vehicle to put the rolling car in park. Moments later it became evident that the driver and passenger were misidentified.

In a follow-up report, McWayne stated that he "accidentally discharged a live round in the vicinity of the front of the Black Chrysler 300." The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office has been investigating the incident.

New gun store opens in Jersey City

Interest in gun ownership has been skyrocketing in New Jersey for the past year. Google search "New Jersey firearms application increase" and you’ll find statistics ranging from 250% to 1000%.⠀

For a long time, the only place to legally purchase a firearm in Jersey City has been Caso’s Gun-A-Rama on Danforth Avenue. Now there’s a new store in town, looking to serve Hudson County’s new gun owners.⠀

Urban Tactical LLC., at 548 West Side Avenue., is owned and operated by minority, disabled veterans. One of the store’s owners, Fernando Colon-Jimenez, has roots in Jersey City and a passion for firearms that he developed during his military service.⠀

For Colon, giving back to his community means providing gun safety & training. He’s also offering free courses for new gun owners purchasing their first firearm from Urban Tactical.⠀

In addition to selling weapons, Colon and his business partners offer S.O.R.A. training and security services through their affiliated company Stealth Security. For more information about Urban Tactical, visit www.urbantacticalfirearms.com.

*** WAKE UP WORLD *** Airbnb IPO... why don't we give Adolf Hi**er the Nobel Peace Prize while we're at it... what's the difference? Let me put it this way... this is how sick this psychopath (Brian Chesky) is... psychopath noun [ C ] UK /ˈsaɪ.kə.pæθ/ US /ˈsaɪ.kə.pæθ/ PSYCHOLOGY specialized a person who has no feeling for other people, does not think about the future, and does not feel bad about anything they have done in the past, or for the repercussions their actions have on others LESS THAN 4 DAYS AFTER ANOTHER 5 people are brutally murdered using Airbnb's so-called sharing platform Mr. Chesky is in an interview espousing his company and their 'TRUST' component he is indignantly ignoring how sick his company is and how he plans to take Airbnb public. It turns my stomach! They are a revolting pack of lying, thieving, cheating psychopaths https://youtu.be/iyy9XkQR1CM Physically and Verbally assaulted, terrorized and held captive by knife-wielding lunatic for 3 hours, My property vandalized, (valuable artwork stabbed… electronics phone wiring cut… furniture and property burned with cigarettes… ad nauseum), robbed and after the most traumatic event of my adult life Airbnb deceitfully hiding Murders, Rapes, Beatings & Human Trafficking avoids me for 2 weeks then says: "GET LOST! LOSE OUR NUMBER! ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT US WILL BE IGNORED!" Ask the psychopath how many hundreds of thousands of innocent tenants are being evicted from their affordable homes to feed the vile, depraved and gluttonous greed which is Brian Chesky and Airbnb, ask the man how many murders, how many robberies, how many beatings, how many hammer attacks, how many stabbings, how much vandalism, how many brothels, how much prostitution, drug trafficking, human trafficking bloodshed and grief they are causing worldwide. Airbnb is an insufferably insidious cancer regurgitating from the bowels of Hades! This company going Public... the world has lost it! Airbnb going public; i.e public offering of murders, rapes, beatings, robberies, assaults, vandalism, hammer and stabbing attacks, pimps, prostitution, brothels, human trafficking, money laundering, innocent tenants evicted from their homes... ad nauseum Watching that psychopath utter the word 'TRUST' in a recent interview is vomitous. Ask him about the disabled man in Toronto, Ontario who trusted Mr. Chesky and his 'so-called' sharing platform only to have his life destroyed and then told by Airbnb to (verbatim) "Get Lost! Lose our number! Attempts to contact us will be ignored!" I am left terrified, shattered and in shock and awe at not only being attacked and robbed but the absolute cruelty and depravity of the sociopaths running this company! I was already suffering from PTSD when Airbnb came into my life and further turned it upside down! I am haunted by this daily and will likely be haunted by this to my dying day! This is a vile depraved company which should be banned IMMEDIATELY! YES I'm mad, I'm suffering daily and I want the world to know just what kind of people... what kind of disgusting, immoral, illegal and depraved company Airbnb is.
