New Jersey Carjacking Shooting Could Reveal Criminal Trend

Here is a rare case where the media discloses the race of the perps. There was no mention of the fact when the story was originally reported.
The mainstream media are no longer reporters of fact and truth but often act as politically correct filters. For example media accounts of the criminals and victims conceal the facts that all of the perpetrators of the savagery known as the “knockout game” are black and all the victims are white, Asian, or orthodox Jewish. In all cases of these vicious racist hate crimes the media always amorphously refer to the perpetrators as “youths” or “teenagers” omitting their race.
Media reports on the recent carjack-murder case in Short Hills, NJ all intentionally omitted the fact that the four murderers were black. A call to the NJ prosecutor’s hot line was met with refusal to disclose the races of the savages who shot a 30 year old husband dead in front of his wife who surely knew and disclosed that the assailants were black. Now that the FBI and police have apprehended the four killers the media, of necessity, have had to tell the unsurprising fact that they are all hardened black criminals with long rap sheets.
In the best tradition of the mafia code of “omerta” the press maintains almost universal silence where the truth is politically incorrect. It is time for the mainstream media to return to their historic role as honest purveyors of facts and let the chips fall where they may.

The accused killers allegedly targeted the couple specifically to steal their luxury vehicle.
Man Shot and Killed in Front of Wife in Luxury Mall Carjacking in New Jersey

An evening of shopping ended in horror for a New Jersey couple when the husband was shot to death in a mall parking garage as his wife looked on and the two assailants then drove off in their luxury SUV.
The vehicle stolen Sunday, a silver Range Rover, was recovered Monday morning in a residential neighborhood in Newark, about 10 miles away from the Mall at Short Hills. The two carjackers were at large, and a local anti-crime group was offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to their arrest and conviction.
Killed in the attack was 30-year-old Dustin Friedland, a lawyer from Hoboken who had worked recently at his family’s HVAC company analyzing construction-related legal claims, according to his LinkedIn profile. Friedland’s wife, Jamie Schare Friedland, is listed as an attorney specializing in landlord-tenant law at a firm in New York City. Both attended law school at Syracuse University, according to their online profiles.
A woman who answered the phone at Epic Mechanical in Neptune, N.J., declined to comment and said Friedland’s father, who also works there, was not in the office. No one answered at several phone numbers listed for other relatives.
Sunday’s encounter was the latest in a troubling pattern in Essex County, whose borders encompass crime-plagued Newark to the east as well as Short Hills and other affluent suburbs to the west. Carjackings have risen steeply in the past several years, leading local authorities to create a multi-agency task force three years ago after a spate of crimes that included brazen daytime attacks and the carjacking of a snowplow two days after a Christmas blizzard.
The partnership succeeded in arresting and prosecuting three groups responsible for most of the carjackings, and the crime rate fell temporarily. Since then, it has ticked up, with 416 last year in Essex County, a 44 percent increase from 2010.
Nearly 300 carjackings were reported through July 31 of this year, according to the county prosecutor’s office. In August, authorities announced a program that uses billboards to display mug shots of convicted carjackers next to the number of years they are serving in federal prison.
