NEWARK, N.J. Law enforcement officials in Newark, N.J., say March was the city's first month without a killing in more than 40 years.
Police Director Garry McCarthy said this week that the last time the city went through a calendar month without a murder was in May 1966.
No matter your political affiliation or opinion of Mayor Cory Booker that is great news. I remember that city being a war zone at one point. With all this bad news coming out of the economy, praise Yah we have something to look to as some pretty decent good news. Just thought I'd drop that on you all. Hopefully everyone is blessed this weekend.
