NEWARK - Thousands of News 12 viewers have been reacting to the arrest of four men who allegedly fatally shot and robbed Dustin Friedland in a mall parking garage.
Many comments on News 12 New Jersey’s Facebook page were vengeful, while others brought race into the discussion.
"They should go to prison for the rest of their lives but every black person from Newark isn't a criminal," said one commenter.
Others are still shocked by the violent nature of the crime.
"Thank God you guys caught them. A job well done by the men in blue. Why couldn't they just take the car. It's so sad an innocent person had to die...just horrible," another viewer commented.
The suspects have been identified as 29-year-old Hanif Thompson, of Irvington; 31-year-old Karif Ford, of Newark; 32-year-old Basim Henry, of Newark; and 33-year-old Kevin Roberts, also of Newark. Prosecutors say it appears that Friedland was targeted specifically because the suspects were interested in his Range Rover.
