Score Total for 2016

Total guns used in crimes in East Orange (not necessarily recovered by police)

38

* A toy gun or BB gun "counts" because the robbery was successful; the victim thought it was real and if someone had shot the perpetrators, it would have been a legitimate "self defense" case. The criminals should be charged with armed robbery as if the gun were real.
** A perpetrator who refuses to show his hand(s) during an arrest and who is subsequently killed by police during the arrest could have had a gun concealed, and so this also "counts." There is no cure for "stupid."

NOTE: An OPRA request submitted by rlsmedia.com to the city of East Orange had the police department
declining to provide an exact number of actual shooting instances that occurred around the city for the time period
(January - July 2016). The East Orange True News believes this policy is directed by mayor Lester Taylor in an
effort to hide the information from East Orange residents for political reasons.
