    One Cares Are we crying still Are we again outraged Do we even still care In July of 2007 3 promising college students were gunned down behind Mount Vernon in the Vailsburg section of Newark NJ A part of town where ghastly murders usually do not occur As a city we got angry cried and rallied against violent crime and even called for the resignation of the mayor because his promise of making Newark a safer city has not yet materialized We thought Iofemi Hightower Dashawn Harvey and Terrance Aeriel would be the wake up call Yet two months later we ve experience 15 more murders and at least 3 of the victims have been under 21 years of age Marquis Shoulders a student at Westside High School who many said was good kid had his life ended after an argument with someone in a car that pulled up on the street where he stood in front of a middle school in the Vailsburg section But what is so much colder than the way in which he was killed is the aftermath of his death There are no protests down town on the steps of city hall There are no calls for the mayor s resignation There is no increase in county or state police presence No one is crying any more No one is angry Newark has fallen back into its complacent feeling about violence and has once again come to accept that murder is simply apart of our lives I remember talking to someone during a conference in March in Minneapolis Minnesota with someone who was from Chicago He asked me is it that bad in Newark and I replied without hesitation yes Someone who was with me who is an older guy who loves Newark and never likes to speak about it in a negative light sounded much like Police Director Gary McCarthy He replied by saying that its not random killings and little children but its gang members drug dealers people who are involved in crime However my assertions and beliefs have been validated all year And that is that bullets have no names crime is random in Newark and much of the city is in chaos An 8 year was shot a 3 year old a 70 year old woman the 3 gruesome murders behind Mt Vernon the 20 year old on Elizabeth Avenue and Meeker Street the 16 year old boy on Pennington Street the man who was killed by his son the man shot to death on Smith Street the same weekend as the Mount Vernon incident and the woman who was stabbed to death by her step son There are so many being shot and killed and its a shame that I can name this many instances without looking into the newspaper or knowing any of the inviduals personally Many of these individuals weren t involved in violence or drugs or gangs or general crime but they live in a city where
