On August 19, 2019, councilman Peter A Brown Jr of Linden NJ, attacked a female councilperson Gretchen Hickey, this is not the first time he has attacked someone. After viewing this incident, I believe he's a threat to other councilpersons, coworkers & the public. More disturbing is Mr. Brown told me at an earlier date in the city of Linden's SID'S building that the Police Chief answers to him. When I shared this with Mayor Derek Armstead, he told me "Peter was probably off his med's just Ignore him." If this comment has any manner of truth to it. Then what happens when one day he hurts or kills someone. We should not forget that this is the same Peter Brown Jr that threatened to commit suicide if a state police detective investigating him on corruption allegations didn't meet with him. I doubt he will face any legal consequences for this or past actions especially in the city of Linden, NJ, where elected officials appear to be treated with special privileges not afforded to regular citizens.
