What a FEAT!

According to CNN.com:

“For the first time in more than four decades, the killings in Newark have stopped — for the last month, at least — and the billboards are coming down.

Newark Billboard

Newark marked its 33rd day Friday without an official homicide, a startling fact for a city that has averaged about two killings a week over the last few years and saw homicides spike 50 percent from 2002 to 2006.”

I can’t imagine living in a place where you have to celebrate the number of days in a row in which a person has not been murdered. Apparently, these 33 days represent the longest stretch of time that the city has been murder-free in four decades.

Lets hope this is trend for Newark and they can rise up.
