Newark’s Carjacking Epidemic

My 9 NJ, December 18, 2013

The two suspects wanted for the recent shooting of a young lawyer in front of his wife during a carjacking gone terribly wrong at Short Hills Mall, are still at large.

The couples’ stolen SUV was found the following day abandoned in Newark and New Jersey’s largest city ranks among the top in the nation for vehicle thefts.

There are about 400 carjackings a year in Essex County alone. While Los Angeles and New York rank high in carjackings, Newark takes the cake.

In fact, people in Newark are known for posting videos of stolen cars doing drag races, donuts and drifting in the streets. Often times, in the videos, you can see cop cars chasing the reckless divers on the city’s main streets.

    Memo to NJ: Don’t go there if you can; carry heat if you can’t.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Well, if you happen to be driving in the carjacking capital of America, I have just one bit of advice…

  • pcmustgo

    I once knew a Black from Newark who boasted of his brother having an addiction to stealing cars. Went to the same college as me.

    • IstvanIN

      A normal “person” would be ashamed of a brother who stole cars.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      He’s probably eligible for a Platinum Obama care policy.

  • Geo1metric

    The good people of Newark need to stand up as one and put a stop to this. The police cannot/will not do it. The people must rise up and stop this insanity.

    • Oil Can Harry

      The good people of Newark moved out decades ago, replaced by diversity dirtbags.

    I’ve heard of cases from the black part of St. Louis about blacks doing drag races in reverse gear.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Blacks are the dumbest group of people on earth. It’s astounding how dumb they are. My father was right. They ARE sub-human. And lower than animals.

      • Non Humans

  • JohnEngelman

    In South Africa there are road signs that say, “Danger. Carjacking ahead.”

    • dd121

      Should I laugh, or say “seriously”.

      Yeah….but there are also cars with flamethrowers that burn anyone within ten feet of your car.

    “…a carjacking gone terribly wrong…”

    Don’t you just love those phrases like, “a robbery gone wrong,” “a rape gone wrong,” a mugging gone wrong,” a beating gone wrong,” a [insert crime of your choice here] gone wrong“?

    As opposed to WHAT??
    A [insert crime of your choice here] gone RIGHT“?

    “Oh Thank God honey. I’m so glad your rape went off ‘right’.”

    • IstvanIN

      If they get away with it, which in the case of the Friedlands might be the case, it appears to have “gone right”.

    • Hunter Morrow

      It is just an excuse for why so many blacks kill so many Whites.

      It has a race component. Everything blacks do does. Yet it is always
      “gone wrong.” The jews warp the language that way in their sham news.

    • Luca

      The “Gone Wrong” excuse is an attempt to blame the victim and build a defense for the criminal.

      “You honor, if Mr. White would have just complied with my client’s request to hand over his money, his car keys, cellphone and his wife, none of the unfortunate side effects would have taken place and my client would not be facing murder charges right now”.

      • Who Me?

        Owning cars be racissss

    • Jack Burton

      You wonder what kind of idiot could write something so ridiculous. The Negro Sibile Marcellus, that explains it.

    • bubo

      When the media says, “gone wrong” what they really mean is “YT caused his own death somehow.”

  • Strike_Team

    There’s a good chance the media attention on the post theft parties with the stolen vehicles will have blacks around the country get on the copy-cat wagon.

  • Jackryanvb

    I don’t have a car. I used the environmental positive “Zip car”…

    I ‘m not going to get killed for my $300 Air Jordon basketball shoes….

    When you live in urban America long enough, you learn to adapt to survive.


    Only “SOBs” drive SUVs.

    • Jack Burton

      You sound like a liberal queer.

      • Alexandra1973

        I don’t have an issue with SUVs so much as I do with conspicuous consumption. You know, the “look at me.”

        I think that may be represented by SUVs to some.

        I can still overtake them in my old 1997 Grand Caravan, though. 🙂

        • Strider73

          Hummers are the ultimate “look at me” conspicuous-consumption vehicles. Fortunately they are no longer being made.

    • Jack Burton

      Jackryanvb, are you a moderator here? If not, who is?

    • fuzzypook

      When my husband bought one a few years ago, at first I was not happy about it. Then we bought a canoe. We go to Elkhorn Creek every Saturday that weather permits and spend the whole day fishing, (me drinking!) and floating down the creek. The SUV is perfect for carrying our canoe.

    • The city (Chicago) should charge non 4 person plus families a severe premium for city stickers and parking. There is no reason that giant vehicles should get the same treatment as small cars in a crowded urban environment.

    • Jackryanvb

      Strider73. Agreed. I hated the Hummer, am not ashamed that I was openly Leftist in opposing these has guzzling military vehicles on American streets. These horrors came out around the time of 9/11/01. So patriotic forces were asking American to consume less gas, lesson our dependence on Middle East oil, Osama Bin Ladin being a very wealthy Muslim oil family guy. And then there are the dumb [email protected] Amuricans buying Hummers! I insulted many a Hummer owner and their bimbo girlfriends at the gas pumps.

    • bilderbuster

      With the right driver, the Hummer is a wonderful vehicle for navigating down the crowded sidewalks of Newark.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    I’d love to cruise around Newark in a Bentley with tinted windows and a silenced pistol.

    • Extropico

      Whenever the Fed is no longer able to effectively provide cover for the economy by printing money to pay for more police and prisons, Paul Kersey and Harry Callahan movies will be back in style, as will Bernie Goetz.

  • Hunter Morrow

    Is any majority black area the Capital of anything positive? Or is it all pathological?

    Baltimore: Heroin capital of the U.S.
    Camden: Carjacking Capital
    Detroit: Illiteracy Capital
    East St. Louis: Knockout Game Capital

    • bilderbuster

      Of all the Black criminals, the government had to go & spend a fortune to put Wayne Williams behind bars?

    • Dave4088

      You forgot:

      Chicago: Black flash mob capitol of the world

  • jr2

    If the cops want the public’s help in finding these guys, why hasn’t any description of their appearance been put out? Oh, wait – no description is MSM code for “young black males of low intelligence”. sorry.

    • By wilfully refusing to provide useful physical descriptions, the cops are clearly admitting that they do not want the public’s help in finding perps. Big city police chiefs are also more openly worried about your guns than the one Shitavious and his homies buy from crooked police department evidence room supervisors.

      The ADL couldn’t have said it any better.

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    Paul Kersey, at SBPDL, had the following regarding Newark’s carjacking epidemic…

    “Though the problem of carjacking is an almost entirely black affair – considering the two suspects in the murder of Friedland are both black (can’t blame “holiday” hours) – a couple of lawmakers in New Jersey were more offended that an anti-carjacking billboard included mugshots of black convicts than by the criminal act the billboard try to publicly shame. [2 lawmakers take issue with mugshots of black men appearing on anti-carjacking billboards, Newark Star-Ledger, 8-21-13]”

    • saxonsun

      They caught them?

  • MBlanc46

    This certainly can’t be true. St. Cory Booker, now Magic Negro Senator from New Jersey, was mayor for seven years. It’s certainly an economic and social paradise. The crime rate is certainly so low that it’s hardly calculable. As soon as they catch the last two jaywalkers and the last litterer, the crime rate will be zero. It must be some other Newark.

  • Strider73

    One has to wonder what mind-numbing drug(s) the people running the Devils were on to build the team’s new arena in Newark. East Rutherford likely wasn’t much better, but still . . .

  • Greg Thomas

    “A carjacking gone terribly wrong.” More PC language meant to downplay and minimize a murder committed by blacks.. Please tell me how a carjacking goes terribly right!

    • bubo

      They got the Range Rover, they got to listen to rap music on the stereo on the drive home, they got to shoot a “cracker” and gain street cred and as of now haven’t been caught. Can’t see how it’s anything less than a carjacking gone right for the black perpetrators.

    • bilderbuster

      When they get away AND keep the car?

  • Anon

    This article goes out of its way to cover up an important fact. Foul areas like Newark are of western essex….a negro bastion. Literally walled off from that is the extremely wealthy, multi-million dollar homes of east essex including The Mall at Short Hills….probably the wealthiest mall in the US and a place negros are arrested on sight.

    • Xerxes22

      You got it backwards. Western Essex is the good part. Newark, Irvington, East orange are all in eastern Essex county. The Short Hills mall is in a nice area but it is only a few miles drive from the ghettos of eastern Essex country.

  • Puggg

    Speaking of malls.

    If you’re in St. Louis, avoid South County Mall until after Saturday. Because there’s already a hoard of bell curvers lined up outside a shoe store in the mall, they started this morning, to wait to buy some Michael Jordan shoes that won’t go on sale until Saturday.

    • Earl Turner

      Gosh, I hope they don’t miss too much work!

      Why is everyone laughing?

  • Massif1

    So carjacking is the problem? Not black males? I see.

  • negrolocaust

    its odd

    • Who Me?

      The problem with blacks is that they have been “habituated”. Just like a bear or cougar who has become habituated by getting food from humans, they eventually begin to regard the humans themselves as food, and are therefore far more dangerous than their wild counterparts. For the safety of humans that may encounter them, bears, cougars and other four-footed creatures must be destroyed when they become habituated, likewise with certain other creatures…

  • negrolocaust

    the only one positive thing i can say about blacks is that they are so dumb and drugged up or boozed up that there is always a pretty good chance of catching them for their crimes.

  • When I was in HS, guys power-braked on the drive-thru lane at a local Rax directly at a concrete retaining wall, How they all made the turn I will never know.

  • LaSantaHermandad

    Same old s–t! Hitting on the fact the guy was rich and suddenly there’s a media firestorm.
    Yet there are 400 carjackings in “NewARK” that don’t get reported. How ’bout the fact that this guy was murdered in cold blood? Typical left wing BS!
    BTW somebody please inform that pendejo that NewARK is in Delaware! The city is question is NewERK.
    When Eve Carson was carjacked and brutally murdered your usual suspect apologists complained about the publicity because Eve was a pretty, blonde White girl. Then the whining about how many Black girls are murdered and there’s never any outrage in the Press. The murder of any innocent person is an outrage. Are the Black girls being murdered by Whites?
    Who murdered Eve, Lauren Burk, Channon and Chris, Amy Willard, and a thousand others over the past several years?

    • Alexandra1973

      My guess is that black-on-black doesn’t get reported as much because it’s another drive-by, another day in the ‘hood. Stories like that would be a dime a dozen, not to mention the newspapers would be a bit thicker, I’d think.

      • bilderbuster

        If they did that even the dumbest of Whites could see through the propaganda.

  • Carjackings with a gun are “nuisance or petty crimes”. That’s why, when they’re done right and nobody gets hurt, the police don’t even bother to try to catch the perpetrators. They rather save their energies tracking down those who post white supremacist flyers on school lockers: which are serious crimes.

    The occasional deaths are merely fallout or some of the cost from so many carjackings which go right.

    We as a nation need to ban legal gun ownership, ensure that the perpetrators are of a growing population (provide for their healthcare, housing, and fertility needs), and make sure that vicious racist whites feel the full extent of the law when they try to resist. Only then will everything turn out okay. Of course this was sarcasm but in actuality it’s simply how things are going.

  • saxonsun

    A few days ago, at the Short Hills mall in NJ, a white man was murdered trying to protect his wife from carjackers. He was 30 yrs. old. His car was found in Newark. The perps haven’t been caught yet but they’re probably black. And this area on NJ is very rich–they’re coming to us.

    • saxonsun

      Sorry, I didn’t read the article first.

  • Massif1

    Don’t blacks claim to have mental illness – something to do with slavery – and that’s why they can’t help themselves and always commit crimes?

  • bilderbuster

    Or all the Rabbi’s mutilating the penis of a male infant with the child’s family’s approval or the sickening ritual kosher slaughter of animals.

  • bilderbuster

    Because they’re paid to just like whores.
    The same can be said of White actors reading a script whether in Hollyweird or in DC.
    Focus on the producer & you will find the culprit.

  • Newark, New Jersey the carjacking capital of the USA? I am shocked, simply shocked! I was expecting it to be East Saint Louis, Illinois.

    • Puggg

      It wouldn’t be East St. Louis because there are hardly any good cars there left to steal or carjack. At least in Newark NJ, far as I can tell, there’s some prosperity around and some low hanging fruit to pick.
