Mall carjacking widow’s heartbreaking goodbye
NY Post ^ | 12/18/13 | Reuven Fenton and Bruce Golding

Posted on 12/18/2013 12:24:30 PM PST by jimbo123

The tragic widow of New Jersey mall carjacking victim Dustin Friedland emotionally eulogized her slain hubby as “just the best person you ever met” at a funeral packed with hundreds of mourners on Wednesday.

Standing just feet from the closed casket, Jamie Schare Friedland said that despite her loss, “I’m truly the luckiest person I know, and I still believe that because I married the best man in the entire world.”

“I was lucky enough to be with him in the time we had,” said Jamie, 27.

“There was not a better person, a better soul, in the entire world. He was my entire world and my happiness was the most important thing to him, always.”

Makes you want to stop by the range on the way home and practice with your carry piece... in the hope that you can prevent your spouse ever having to be in this woman’s shoes.

The poor little Trayvons had no choice when their victim chose to resist.

Anybody who doesn't allow little Trayvons to victimize them is RACIST!

What is it they say... “Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six”?

It may be almost impossible to get a carry permit in New Jersey, but... better to be the wife of a jailbird than a widow.

Whatever.

I don’t understand why he wasn’t carrying a gun. He was a lawyer, and officer of the court. Shouldn’t have been hard for him to get a permit.

What? no message of condolence from the white house? The big guy didn’t condemn the murder? The justice department hasn’t vowed to track down and prosecute the killers? jessee jackson and da rev al aren’t doing a war dance in the streets?

I don’t know. I’m with you. But I’ve heard this was an “upscale” mall, so, who knows, maybe he just wasn’t expecting any trouble?

Just goes to show.

A little over two hours before Friedland was murdered, a motorist in nearby South Orange had his 2014 Land Rover carjacked by a trio of bandits in a Jeep Cherokee.

Jamie Schare Friedland is also a lawyer and works for the Adam Leitman Bailey law firm in Manhattan. The company has put up a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of the culprits.

The firm is best-known for its pro bono defense of the so-called Ground Zero mosque and for successfully taking on Trump SoHo New York developers on behalf of buyers who said they had been tricked into purchasing pads.

The sounds of crickets chirping once again proves the reverse-racists/opportunists have no souls whatsoever.

Let's see - the husband - a good man and a lawyer was following the law. The little monsters were not following the law... so the solution is more gun control? Guess New Jersey wants to make damn sure no one can fight the little Trayvon's off...

The message has become a Leftist meme: “If you own a firearm, you must be evil.”

But, of course, only if you’re a law-abiding, middle class citizen.

The upper class hires bodyguards and the lower class doesn’t give a rat’s *ass about permits.

The parking facility and mall were gun-free zones.

They had no right to be driving a $70,000 vehicle while these youth had nothing!! And to be out shopping, enjoying life while these youth struggle everyday just to survive in the ‘hood. Unacceptable!

These are the words of liberals, those who will defend the actions of the thugs who should be shot within an hour of being found guilty.

Dustin looks like he could have been my son. I’m sure many other Freepers can say the same.

Some media said the "upscale mall" is side by side with a really bad neighborhood.

Not to speak ill of the dead but maybe there is something more to this. The man was a lawyer. Lawyers are not often like by some people. The car was abandoned not far from the mall. You kill someone for their car and then abandon it?

Figures. Always someone who forgets to leave their gun home though. Like the dirtbags who did this.

No idea.

But it could simply be that it was his time to go.

Or something.

The thing is, there are so very many .380’s these days that’ll fit in a pocket....

Anyway, it’s a tragic disaster for his wife, family, and friends.

I doubt it. This area according to media is near a really bad district and has frequent car jackings. They probably abandoned the car because they knew they were being hunted thru it. Also according to media, which notoriously gets things wrong to be sure, he was shot when he tried to resist.

Perps could have (probably were) high on something.

Yeah, all that considered it’s true what you say. Short Hills is some thirty minutes north of Newark, NJ, arm pit on the East Coast. I grew up in Kearny which is just across the Passaic River. Went to high school for two years in Newark in the early ‘70s. Far as I’m concerned the whole rotten city should be glassed over.
