Newark is not a place you want to be at night. My fiance works there everyday and makes sure to leave by 3pm because the later it gets the more people are on the streets. I'll tell you what, he got car jacked at gun point yesterday while getting gas at a full gas station on a main road at 1:00 in the afternoon. Only in Newark. Just stay away.

He is okay. They hit him w/ the gun in the head (but sort of missed so he only had a bump, but nothing major. They got away with the car, but when they found money in the car, they took the money and ditched the car. It was found a few blocks away. So thankfully he's okay, the car is okay and all the money is gone (A lot of moneY). But now there's nothing they can do. What are the chances they catch these guys? Or are even trying to catch them? This kind of stuff happens way too often!!!

I live in the south ward which is the worst part of Newark. A cop got shot last night but it's nothing for people who live there, if your just passing through it's no big deal, the gangs will leave yu alone, but if you want trouble, your deft. Gunna get it.

I was born and raised in Newark's infamous west ward valisburg area which is the real most dangerous area of Newark not south ward anyway Newark is not that bad as they say but race is a huge problem not to be racist but if you're white I highly suggest u stay away from valisburg and south ward because the odds of getting shoot is 1 out of 5

Newark is the biggest city in NJ, majority of the time when cars get stolen anywhere in nj they are found stripped, scrapped and demolish somewhere in Newark because it a be hard to find, blame it on the thugs on the streets, and the cops are so behind all the crimes and all . the who driver commercial trucks when get their trucks full of cargo stolen while at a power wash station etc and sweep out all the cargo and money and abandon the vehicle somewhere in Newark. Thats just car hickjacks.. And Its like the 3 worst city in the US
