In the photo they sure look like “teens” to me.
Can’t tell much...it’s too dark.
However, I’ve been watching NJ 12, and NJTV (NJN) and they didn’t mention it at all. I wonder why?
Serving the interest of the local area?
Only a guess.
You have a college there so it could actually be a diverse group or it could be the urban blight elements from nearby East Orange or the parts of South Orange that have become run down. But covering up crowds of black youths gone wild is pretty common in North Jersey Media.
Since even the transients on the street corners have camera phones, where are all the pics and video?
So true; the media endangers normal people by masking the real danger in these areas.
THIS is why my carry weapon is now a KelTec PMR-30. With extra mag I have 60 rounds of protection.
Until something very, very bad happens to the people involved in this sort of lawlessness, nothing will change.
I suspect that out there, somewhere is a Bernard Goetz type just WAITING for a target rich environment like this....hope I’m wrong.
