booze, meth, and old grudges don't mix.

Newark has become such a pit.

Alicia, I agree. Newark needs to revitalize, we need to bring in higher end stores and restaurants, and clean up some of the dumpy homes and communities!

Newark is a great place to reside. Compare Newark's crime rates with other surrounding communities. Unless you have the money to move to tiburon or belvedere I think your ok. The stabbing was an icolated incident, and Loren is being charged with aggrevated mayhem! He could get a life sentance for defending himself from a degenerate bum.

CONSECO Loren went to the home of the victim in an attempt to kill him. Loren was not defending himself. His charges are a joke. He should have been charged with attempted murder and taken off the streets. He has multiple incidences of violence.
