No offense to Newark, they've made great strides, but really shows how downhill MTV has gone since its heyday in the 80s and 90s.

I'm surprised kids are still even interested in going.

Sarcasm.

It's very difficult for a poor kid from Essex County to steal a modern car.

They need to capture the signal from a keyless remote and it's even harder to steal a car with a key chip/transponder.

Car thieves are high tech these days and your car is probably in more danger of being stolen if its parked in a leafy cul-de-sac in Millburn.

Not true. These poor kids have guns so they will just pull up to your car, pull out the gun and carjack those expensive cars. I hear it all the time on the scanner.

'Ambrose also spoke about heightened security and police presence around the event, also noting “there will be continued robust police coverage citywide through each of our seven precincts.”"
They can just use some theatre like the NJPAC.

which would work if they refer to it as Newark, NJ. I'm betting they are going to refer to it as NYC. It's happened before....

They get really pissed off when people shoot back. Unfortunately so do the cops.
