Golden slams Murphy Administration, media, over prisoner release

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden reacted to the news that the New Jersey Department of Corrections approved the furlough 50 state prisoners over the weekend with an impassioned post on facebook in which he thanked the New Jersey’s corrections officers and apologies to the victims of the criminals being send home.

“Disgraceful,” Golden concluded in the post wherein he claimed that the release would make no difference to the safety of the corrections officers.

    Less prisoners means potential layoffs as you close various pods, wings, etc. Read between the lines, seems as if he’s seeing if it’s worth challenging Jack in the primary or will he just accept second banana where the State leaders allegedly want him.

    I suspect this has more to do with protecting citizens from criminals rather than jobs. Exhibit one is the article I posted above

    why he’d leave a great job as one of the best sheriffs/ departments in this state, for the cesspool known as Trenton. For a title?? That’s crazy. The only things that would get NJ anywhere near going for a change would be a drastic tax increase and/ or cutting the thousands of pensions, many for unions, that they chronically underfund. Case in point: Florio Free in ‘93: his tax increase made it possible for us to squeeze out a 21,000 vote win for Whitman, working 24/7, for months. (ironically,we carried Monmouth for her, by 21,000.) – never mind that years later, she’s become a Trump- hating lib. Point is, let’s first see if Murphy’s supposed 70+ % popularity can be cracked: in a blue state mess like this, that’s pretty overwhelming! Why kill yourself??

    You don’t think he has POTUS aspirations? You’re nuts. Being Governor of NJ puts you in the national spotlight more so than being a County Sheriff does.
