Jersey Devil: Photographed

In the 90s, many business owners began putting video-surveillance in their establishments. The security footage would be put onto to VHS tapes that could be stored or rerecorded on the next day. There was a young man who owned a slaughterhouse in southern Jersey. (To spare readers from the uncomfortable feelings that come with this sad fact of life, we will not say what was killed there.) The family was invested in a few different ventures, but the slaughter house brought home the bacon, so to speak. The owner never stepped foot on the kill-room floor when they were in production.

The Jersey Devil and Staten Island

If you know anything about New Jersey, you should know where Staten Island is. Staten Island, New York has its quirks and its charms. In "Buzzkill New Jersey", the Dameo sisters are originally from Staten Island. In fact it seems the women from SI get along quite well with guys in Monmouth County, New Jersey, while the guys from Staten Island, tend to create too much friction when on other people’s turf. This post is about the Jersey Devil, and personal politics aside, Staten Island people like doing business. What kind of business? What are you a cop?
