Newark carnage continues

There has been another multiple shooting in Newark, New Jersey the third such incident in four nights and people are becoming frustrated.

The latest shooting, a drive-by, targeted a group outside a convenience store. Three people were wounded. A 21-year-old man was killed.

Kyle Fleck, who lives up the street, recently returned to the States from Baghdad where he was engaged in combat operations for about two years. But, he says, it feels like he never left. With all the shootings, Newark, Fleck says, is as dangerous as Baghdad.
