    Beth Israel is in the Weequahic section. Weequahic borders Hillside,Clinton hill, and Irvington. Dayton -budweiser section of Newark borders Elizabeth. Dayton is over 90% black. So is Weequahic. These MS er 13ns are from Elizabeth,with its heavy Columbian and Central American immigrant population. Also, that video is just two stupid school kids streetfighting. The title is deceiving and a lie. Blacks are not Ms 13!

    The denial is disgusting or a bad logic device to justify living in he!!. All places are not equal in crime and all places are not nearly as violent as Newark. The fact remains that Newark has about 3% of the State's population and produces nearly 30% of the murders. African Americans make up about 15% of the state's population and are over 50% of the murders. More troubling is that the so-called center of "black" politics in New Jersey is the South Ward of Newark just so happens to be the deadliest. So much for the benefits of black political power?

    Look, if I ran a restaurant and I sent 1 in 3 customers to the hospital, I would be put out of business. Well the City of Newark currently sends more than 1 in 3 African American males to prison or an early death. It's clear: the city of Newark is hazardous to your health. If you are a RESPONSBLE PARENT and you have a young AA male, you need to get him out of this city by any means neccessary. Stop feeding the beast of the underclass and so-called urban culture and a crummy education.

    Police arrest three in connection with shooting death of 30-year-old in Newark

    Police investigate the fatal shooting of 30-year-old Chris Smith, who died outside the home of controversial Newark political figure Amiri Baraka Wednesday afternoon

    NEWARK — Newark police arrested three men in connection with a homicide in the South Ward outside the home of one of the city’s most enduring and controversial political figures.

    A group of unidentified gunmen drove down the 800 block of South 10th Street and opened fire on Chris Smith, shooting the man several times in the chest around 3 p.m., said police spokesman Detective Hubert Henderson.

    Smith was taken to University Hospital in Newark, where he died a short time later, according to Henderson.

    Witnesses told police Smith had been standing near the home of poet Amiri Baraka when a gold-colored car pulled to a stop. Gunshots from inside the vehicle struck Smith, and the car sped off, Henderson said.

    With help from witnesses, police were able to quickly identify and find the car, said Henderson. But the driver sped away as officers closed in, which started a pursuit that proved to be short.

    The fleeing driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed near 14th Street and Ashland Avenue, said Henderson. Police found three men inside the car and arrested them in connection with the incident, said Henderson.

    The suspects were identified as Dwight Devila, 28, Shaheed Jones, 19, and Terrell Jones, 26, all of Newark, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. All three were charged with conspiracy to commit murder, receiving stolen property and weapons offenses, according to Carter, and more charges could follow Thursday.

    Police did not immediately identify a motive in the shooting. Henderson said officers recovered a weapon that had been thrown from the car during the chase.

    Police did not say if any of the three were injured in the crash.

    South Ward Councilman Ras Baraka said the shooting occurred just a few feet away from the home of his father, New Jersey’s former poet laureate Amiri Baraka.

    The 75-year-old, often regarded as one of Newark’s most controversial political voices, was home with his wife, Amina, at the time of the slaying. Neither were injured, but the younger Baraka was concerned with how close the shooting was to his parents’ home.

    “Nothing like that has ever happened in that neighborhood. In front of my parents’ house, that’s crazy,” said Ras Baraka. “My father and mother came outside and see the boy dying on their lawn.”

    Baraka said his mother broke down in tears when she saw Smith bleeding from his wounds.
    Amiri Baraka was New Jersey’s poet laureate until 2002, when his poem “Somebody Blew Up America” was derided as anti-Semitic.

    “It’s like nobody is safe,” said Ras Baraka. “We have to come up with some real solutions to
    what’s going on out here.”

    Stupid primal savages!!! Look at the bimbo pacing and cursing barefoot! Everyone there seem like low IQ mentally challenged retards. Everyone hoping and literally looking forward to violence. Notice the sarcastic anger by the "ghetto trash person" filming the video (who at one point earlier mimics cocking a gun)when he sees the cops. "This da best part of "dapicture"...the "mud-fukan" police! yeah,gotcha on film dont get stupid c'mon cop bitches." Lot of witnesses here, WOOHAAAA! WOOHAAA!" The hippocrite later complains that the cops are here 15 minutes late. Even though the video CLEARLY shows the squad car arriving DURING the altercation. In fact the very presence of the squad car broke it all up. This ghetto piece of excrement was Obviously disappointed that the cops didn't attack(in his point of view) anyone.He was not going to get his "police brutality video!!! LOLLOLLOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is from a long time poster and supporter of newark on newarkspeaks that gave up moved out of newark last year


    Do you really see Newark as ripe for gentrification? Not now do I see it, if ever. Even real estate in the nicer parts of the city have been shaken by the current economic downturn. Given the nation's income-level trajectory, there is a shortage of "gentry" to do the gentrifying. Plus, isn't there still a lot of Jersey City left to rebuild? With its 24/7 interstate subway to New York, JC will continue to outcompete any other New Jersey town, save Hoboken, in attracting the bargain-seeking business workers.

    I think what props Booker up is that the opposition against him seems to be based on personal issues rather than issues of governance. Also a significant percentage of his opposition are people who once were part of the previous administration and many voters think they yearn to return to some personally enriching ingloroius past, rather than taking the time to formulate a truly forward-moving agenda for Newark. Who else out there is really speaking to the issues? Time to start now. Booker is definitely vulnerable to a reasonable, articulate challenger who doesn't make excuses for previous politicians' past graft and barely legal behavior. Enough with the "Booker the Outsider" theme. He's the mayor.

    Most important, be careful of making unnecessary enemies. You do that when you scapegoat whole groups, including some who would want to be your friend. Many progressive thinkers of our time share a Jewish heritage. At any rate, no one can prop anyone up as mayor that inspired Newarkers couldn't vote out.

    If the furloughs weren't frustrating enough, how is Shaneequa gonna learn when mom and dad are laid off? I wish there were some big employer in Newark paying a livable wage beyond the government, but as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong), the bulk of Newark's middle class are its municipal workers. Between foreclosures and layoffs, those strivers who can will leave Newark, thickening its urban issues while the city becomes ever poorer.
