Trenton Breaks Murder Record - My9 New Jersey

Trenton Breaks Murder Record

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

This weekend Trenton broke their record for the most murders in a given year.  The town currently stands at 32 murders so far this year and it’s only August.  This exceeds the past record of 31 murders back in 2005.

Sibile and Bill headed to the scene in Trenton with Police Director Ralph Rivera to look into the murder of a young up and coming rapper Jafar Lewis who goes by the name of Young Farr.  It happened at a local bar where an altercation broke out and Lewis was caught in the crossfire. 

When the Chasers met up with John, Jafar’s father he addressed the idea of retaliation and said “the way he got murdered wasn’t senseless, they had no business shooting that boy like that.”  He also had some emotional choice words for the shooter saying, “Why you do it man, you knew it wasn’t right for you to gun my baby down like that.”

Back in the studio the chasers Discuss how this violence needs to stop and how the peers who are immersed in this lifestyle need to come together to stop the violence and murders in Trenton. There needs to be a common ground where the gangs and youth in the community put down the guns or else there will be more murders in the near future.
