FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2014

Released 9/28/15

According to the Star Ledger Article, the SPIN on this is that "Violent crimes drop in Newark, most Essex towns, feds say." For those who actually live in this local area, we know that statistics are deceptive. The two murders listed for East Orange in the above chart, only let us see those East Orange residents murdered within the boundaries of East Orange, and not those who were murdered when they stepped over the boundaries into neighboring locales. The true numbers are shown below:
