“I don’t know what frustrates me more,” Captain Coley sighed the next afternoon, an aromatherapy candle burning in her precinct office. “These knuckleheads killing each other, or the residents who won’t cooperate with my officers.”
One graph, that catalogues homicides and nonfatal shootings in Newark, by breaking down the predominant racial group of who calls where they occurred 'home'-- Q: What do you immediately see? A: Jim Crow's Shadow
That lack of cooperation — steeped in public mistrust that has been simmering at a low boil since the 1967 riots and fueled by hip-hop culture’s “stop snitching” mantra — is among the major roadblocks Mayor Cory A. Booker faces in his struggle to curb the lawlessness here in New Jersey’s largest city...
...while violent crime has dropped since January — armed robberies are down 42 percent and auto theft 28 percent compared with the first five months of last year — the pace of homicides has not let up since 2006, when 105 people, most of them young black men, were killed.
If most of the homicides in Newark involve black men (and the suspect/individual arrested is almost always a black male), it shouldn't be hard to deduce that the overwhelmingly majority of nonfatal shootings involve a black suspect. [Nonfatal shootings continue to plague N.J. cities, thousands of cases unsolved since 2008, NJ.com, 9-10-13]:
The statistics from New Jersey’s most violent cities paint a grim, but simple, picture.Gun violence is increasing statewide, and resource-strapped police departments are failing to solve hundreds of nonfatal shootings each year in nine of the state’s largest cities: Newark, Camden, Atlantic City, Paterson, Jersey City, Elizabeth, Plainfield, Irvington and Orange.
Last year, police failed to solve more than 80 percent of nonfatal shootings in those cities, continuing a trend that has left thousands of potential killers on New Jersey’s streets. From 2008 to last year, roughly 2,600 out of 3,400 nonfatal shootings went unsolved in those cities.
The New York Times created a map of all homicides and nonfatal shootings in the city, plotting where each crime occurred on an overlay of the city of Newark. More to the point, the dots were plotted on this map of the city, with the racial groups percentage of the population shaded in to denote where the violence was situated.
Notice the high percentage of dots in areas that are 80 percent or greater black; notice the almost absence of dots for areas that are populated by a majority of whites.
That map is reproduced above. James Crow Shadow still covers the white population of Newark, whether they know it or not.
Were the races not segregated, who knows how many whites would fall victim to gunfire, fired (with extreme malice) by a gun operated by a black male; worse, the culture of 'no snitching' would ensure this black individual protection for his crime.
The latter is already the name of game in Newark, where the rule of law has long been a casualty of the absence of Mr. Crow.
For those wondering what the end-result of the American Experiment is (where open borders and black empowerment combine to produce a most unsightly off-spring), look no farther than 2013 Newark. It's coming to a neighborhood, a community, a city, and a state near you.
