An incomplete picture
Says under Mayor Cory Booker, Newark has seen "violent crime up five years in a row, murder up five years in a row."
City officials took themselves there
Says New Jersey Devils managing partner Jeff Vanderbeek "took us into arbitration."
No dollars for 3 of the 4 years
Says New Jersey Devils managing partner Jeff Vanderbeek "froze all those monies during the toughest years in ‘08-’09" and "refused to give the charitable dollars that he was required to give by the contract."
Less than 1 point year over year
"We've seen in this last year tremendous things happening, including our unemployment rate come down 2 percentage points."
Shot and killed, not just shot
Says "if you are shot in the city of Newark, you have over an 80 percent chance that you've been arrested before an average of 10 times."
The ACLU didn't call for an investigation (of the Newark police department), they called for an immediate federal monitor.
