Newark; New Jersey, Newark Anti-Violence Coalition The Newark Anti-Violence Group Holds 1 Year Anniversary March by James Queally/The Star-Ledger August 02 2010.

After a year in the streets, the group; a collective of anti-violence organizations, district leaders, teachers and “progressive gang members”, is producing results. Pastor Bryant Ali, of New Psalmist Church in Newark, said the coalition has gained credibility. “After a year now, the group has proven its resilience in the community, and now they have to take us seriously,” said Ali.

Every time I read about the violence and degeneration of not only America's cities, but also what we used to call suburbs, it breaks my heart!

ie Asbury Park NJ Violence drops in Asbury Park by Mary Ann Spoto/The Star-Ledger January 11 2009 But not that much 11-year-old Asbury Park Girl shot by stray bullet!

My beloved Asbury Park!
When I was eleven, I used to shop on the beautiful streets of Asbury Park with my Mother and Father and run all over it's boardwalk!

Asbury Park had a Beautiful Shopping Section. Right up the block from the boardwalk. I still see that beautiful avenue lined with stores and the boardwalk at the end; with the ocean, in my dreams!

I loved the Swan Boats on the little lake, but my Mother would never let me go on them. She always said you can drown too easy in a lake, because it's fresh water and doesn't buoy you up like the salt water does. Oddly; she never noticed, when I was out so far I was swinging on the ropes in the ocean.

This really isn't about just a few people suffering; this is about a huge number of people suffering! There are huge populations whom are affected by the destruction of humanity all over the country unnecessarily! We all need to unite to end this horror that has become everyday life everywhere in the United States, (and all over the world too), there has to be a stop to this!

Newark police searches, anonymous tips yield dozen arrests by Tomas Dinges/The Star-Ledger Thursday, March 01 2012

Newark police nab guns and drugs in series of arrests this week. by Tomas Dinges/The Star-Ledger February 02 2012

I most seriously have to ask, WHY? ie in the one arrest, they went to all the trouble of selling drugs. Hard work and dangerous too; especially, nowadays and the heroin and cocaine was only worth $3,800!

Crime Really Doesn't Pay!

$3,800 is totally chump change. The darn guns cost that much and the guns are what's gonna get these guys the big jail time! Scary guns! And they probably have no money and will have to use a Legal Aid Lawyer! These dealers are definitely their own best customers and these drugs are; really, bad!

Voice of experience here; way back in the 60's, when the drugs were real, not synthetic! When I think back on all the times i almost got killed (literally), I scare myself and wonder how I was ever so dumb!

A rhetorical question of course because I know that the government, society, with the media, etc. encouraged me to act the way I did. We had genocide back in the sixties too.

Yes, take my word for it
. Been synthetic since the eighties. Not a real opiate, synthetic opiate they just still call it heroin.

The crack is a pharmaceutical amphetamine. Rock form is so convenient for this. Pharmaceutical drugs make a person crazy! Voice of Experience Again, in the early 70's.

I read the New Jersey Newspapers every day and I know people are not this crazy! Something is making them like this!

I'll tell you the truth because I care enough to want you all to have good lives. Not running around in the dark in a slum of a ghetto, shooting each other and overdosing!

This is not fun. Fun is having as much money as rich people. And you'll never make it dealing drugs! There's no money in drug dealing.

Don't believe the stupid movies. Believe me. At 62 I've been there, done that, seen it all!
(well almost, I never dealt drugs. Being of unsound mind I took them all myself. If I can straighten out and get a College Degree, anyone can.

21 Year Old Jersey City Man shot and killed on Ocean Avenue, may have known assailants by Stephanie Musat/ For The Jersey Journal Saturday March 10 2012 Of course he knew his assailants! This is all so stupid.

Someone has these people convinced that they are all so different that they should join gangs and kill each other
, for nothing! Very clever tactic, in a society that would already like to call them second class citizens. Teach them to destroy themselves! *Mind Control by me
First Rule Isolate the Victim.

Bayonne Official Web Site

I know this street. One of the few remaining blocks with un-renovated, tenement buildings and I mean slums!

Avenue C is the oldest street in Bayonne. It was the first and only street. The buildings on it were that old. The entire area has burned down since the 1960's. What didn't burn down was "renovated"! I'm not surprised, bad electric wiring. That's what happened to the entire avenue from about 18th to 26th Streets.

The first photo shows the buildings where the fire occurred. The other photos show opposite sides of the street, that at one time were tenements, and became houses in about 1965. About 30 Bayonne residents evacuated from apartment building due to electrical fire by the Jersey Journal February 24 2012

I was a Chicken Holiday Customer often and our Shop Rite Super-market, is a block away on 25th Street. So I know this block good.

McGinley Square in Jersey City
, is another old area. Pre and Post WWII housing boom era buildings. Old, not as old as Ave C In Bayonne, but old and not kept up well!

Then They Came For Me


First they came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
By that time no one was left to speak up!
