The Brick Republican organization hosted a Police Appreciation Dinner this week, in support of law enforcement and the Brick Township Police Department.

“Over the last couple of years the climate in this country toward our law enforcement officials has deteriorated to an alarming rate,” said John Catalano, Republican Club President. “Under the theme ‘I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore,’ the Brick Township Republican Club decided that the only way to change this disturbing trend is through a grass roots/local effort since the national leaders refuse to address it.”

After a meeting in August with Chief James Riccio, the club decided to host a PBA Meeting Dinner as a show of appreciation to police officers by way of its Brick Republican Community Service Coalition, a community service arm of the club.

“Going forward we plan to do a lot more for the department, such as donating bullet proof vests, lobbying our state and federal officials for mandatory minimums for assaulting law enforcement officials and acquiring more grant money for equipment or additional personnel,” said Catalano.

    It looks like they provided pizza for a PBA meeting….why do you headline this as a “dinner”….did they rent a restaurant out like a wedding or formal affairs…..they bought a couple of pizzas it appears for a PBA meeting which they probably got for free or reduced price from a Poltical operative of theirs

    • John Catalano

      Mr. Rizzo. Maybe next time you’d take it on your own and put your hand in your pocket for our Police or maybe for anyone. You seem to be the guy that only criticizes but never participates. Shame on you. If you did maybe you would get the real facts before you open your uniformed mouth. Maybe the next time you call for Police aide they won’t be available.
      Have a very nice day.

        There it is. The old standby threat that a cop won’t be there when someone needs help. So than why is Mr. Rizzo paying taxes for their salaries, benefits and pensions ????
        You are a clown. And should be ashamed of yourself for even typing those words.

      • John Catalano

        We have no idea that he pays taxes. The only point I give Mr. Rizzo is that he has the courage of his convictions to use his own name. No matter where YOU post your liberal diarrhea you are always a whip. Come out from behind your fake name.

      • Chief Wahoo

        Liberal. Lol.

        Go back to your Fed up and not going to take it club (unless it’s a shiney boot on our throat than its ok)

      • Chief Wahoo

        Liberal. Lol.

        Go back to your Fed up and not going to take it anymore, unless it’s a shiney boot on our throat than its ok, Club.

      • Frank Rizzo

        Chief….I never thought you were the brightest here but I am puzzled at your response….why does my post make you think I am pro cop or threatening they won’t be there…please take the time to read it before you formulate your standard anti anything goverment response.

      • Chief Wahoo

        Rizzo you are a dolt. The reply was to Catalano who was bashing your PBA post and used the boring line of hoping the cops don’t show up when YOU need them. So I called him out on it. And you can see he deleted both posts and ran away like a chicken. Or he just wanted to confuse you, which wasn’t too hard to do.

      • Frank Rizzo

        I stand corrected sir and thank you for your back up

  • Surfrider

    Yeah, you are right, call it what it is, a Pizza night for the PBA. Good for them though for bringing attention and support for the police, even though we have too too many for our tax purse!

    Very unhelpful. Stop being racist and killing us and there won’t be a need. #handsupdontshoot #blacklivesmatter #stoplynchingus #RIPterrencecrutcher

      You make everything about race. We all know you are a racist.
