    The need to constantly put down others to make oneself feel better?

    jder, I've had to go to central philly in the middle of the night some years back. Not sure which is worse, inner philly or Newark, but I would say that's a flip of the coin.

    Almost went to school there, you know (Rutgers-Newark) since that is where the program is located. Glad I didn't.

    Though I used to work not too far from Short Hills (Verona NJ). Couldn't help having to go through Newark quite a bit.

    Perhaps you should do some research on NJ gun control if you're going to make such a foolish post.

    Philly, imo. But it's probably splitting hairs. Seriously, having grown up in NYC and been in and around some very bad areas doing research in a number of cities, I swear I've never felt as uncomfortable, nervous, alert, as I have in some parts of Philly...in the day time!

    That has never been a good place to go in our lifetime.

    Nope. Ever since I was young, Newark was in bad shape.

    Heck, I was in Baltimore last year doing some research and even that didn't seem so scary and we were what had to be its worst areas (which are quite a few). Then again, there were some police with us...

    Guns are legal in NJ, but aggravated assault isnt. So, your point is ... make guns illegal too?

    That's basically it. When you need to claim that half the country doesn't really care about a violent death of an innocent man in order to feel good about yourself ....

    I was going to compare it this kind of stuff that Limbaugh said yesterday:

    but he's not trying to feel good about himself. he's just throwing red meat to the ignorant and hate-filled. Making a mint while hurting the country ...

    I'll admit, I am as guilty as many here of sometimes engaging in crass generalization of others etc..., but purely as an observation, some here do so constantly. They offer up nothing but condemnation and hate.

    It's not legal to carry a gun anywhere in NJ, except to and from a firing range and even then the ammo has to be separated from the firearm and locked away from the general location of the firearm. You assertion reeks of ignorance or a desperate chance for a "sensational" cheap shot.

    Partisanship aside, from one of the reports, the victim refused to hand over his keys.

    Lesson for anyone - hand over the keys. It's a car. It's insured. Hand over the keys. Might you still get killed? Possibly. But at least by giving them what they want they'll be more likely to just leave and you can get away with just a bad experience.

    I find that hard to believe if he had a gun pointed to his head.

    Based on the odds. If this animal did, in fact vote, then the odds are that he voted for Obama.

    Hmm, now where would I have gotten the idea to take cheap shots from?

    Absolutely false. New Jersey has concealed weapon permits.
