"Newark Records First Homicide-Free Month In More Than Forty Years"

The Star-Ledger

April 01,2010

 

Newark - "For the first time in more than forty years, an entire calendar month has come and gone without a homicide in the state's largest city.

 

It's been 32 days since a homicide took place in Newark, marking the first time there has been a slay-free calendar month in the city since 1966.

 

Police Director Garry McCarthy said he hopes to best a 43 day period from March to April of 2008, the longest span of time without a slaying in the city since 1961. Ten homicides have occurred in Newark since January 1st and none have taken place in the South Ward, long believed to be Newark's most dangerous section.

 

The first-quarter homicide total is the same as last year's and the second lowest in Newark since 1941. There were only eight reported shootings in Newark in March, and aggravated assaults, robberies, carjackings, and other major crime rates are all down for the first-quarter 2010 compared to their 2009 totals.

 

The statistical quarter, which spans the first thirteen weeks of the year, officially ended on March 28th."

Now thats good news.Can`t speak much for NYC which seems to be turning into the New Newark.

 

Nah NYC was always this way. Newark turned into NYC!

 

 

In the 90s 75th precint was a death trap. 100 people murders in 1996 alone. You couldnt walk 2 blocks without getting robbed.

 

They need an army to calm down Newark.

I doubt it will get that bad , Newark has been getting better for the past 5 years. Maybe a few Murders a month , but nothing drastic. The City has a Camera System bigger and more integrated then NYC.
