A Jersey City couple returning from their engagement party was killed recently in their neighborhood. I've kept thinking about them in the back of my mind. A beautiful, happy couple with the rest of their lives ahead of them...they'd most likely be alive today if they had just gone to the diner after the party like they were asked. I mean, for that to be the decision to have your life and the life of your loved one balanced on, going home instead of the fucking diner. Such a stupid, shitty, random thing to happen and I hope they find those soulless bastards who killed them and throw the book at them and then some.

There's been an uptick in murder and violence around here lately, the nice weather have the scum out in force. Makes me a little crazy and nervous. I've lived in this city my whole life though, and I know that crime cycles, it's just....:/

It's also kind of fucking with my head a little how FAMILIAR that young woman looks to me.

RIP, Nia & Michael.

That's a horrible story. I can imagine how it would get to you, particularly happening in your city.

This is very sad. And I fear now that so much of the population is without jobs, we are going to see a rise in crime.
