A Range Rover stolen after a man was shot and killed in front of his wife Sunday evening during a carjacking at New Jersey mall has been found, police say.

The vehicle was found in Newark, its police department confirmed to Fox News, a city approximately 10 miles away from the scene of the shooting.

Authorities are still looking for two suspects who confronted the couple in the parking garage of the Mall at Short Hills in Millburn Sunday evening.

The shooter was dissed. Hubby tried to resist, and that can't be tolerated.

If caught, 5 years in jail, max. Aspiring rapper, turning his life around, etc.

He didn’t resist. They just shot him in the head.

“It was violent. The victim did not struggle. The perp just shot him in the head,” a source said. “The perps may be part of a stolen car ring that’s been hitting the tri-state the last few months.”

I remember those two stores, but it’s so long ago, I just don’t remember shopping in them. My parents did a lot of shopping there, in many of the stores during their years in the area. Mom was an RN at Morristown Mem Hosp, and Dad was at Allied Chem’s world HQ. After a few hours in a mall, all the big stores look the same to me.

”Actually, NJ is a carry state - - but just try to get a permit. Fuhgeddaboutit. ”

New Jersey is shown on many of the concealed carry websites as a “may issue” state, but in fact it does NOT issue carry permits to ordinary citizens. You must have a verifiable threat, which I guess means an appointment with an attacker who has sent you a certified letter to this effect, and you better have this before the minimum 60 days for the permit to be processed.

NJ just pretends to issue by having a “procedure” to issue permits, but in fact in practice, they don’t. They have already decided that you don’t need a permit, and you won’t get one.

Stolen-car ring terrorizing tri-state eyed in lawyer’s carjacking murder

The thugs who shot and killed a young lawyer in front of his horrified wife during an apparent carjacking outside an upscale New Jersey mall may be part of a stolen-car ring that’s been targeting the tri-state area in recent months, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Monday.

Dustin Friedland, 30, of Hoboken offered no resistance when the pair of thugs confronted him about 9:10 p.m. Sunday outside his luxury Range Rover on the third level of a parking garage at The Mall at Short Hills in Millburn, sources said.

“It was violent. The victim did not struggle. The perp just shot him in the head,” a source said. “The perps may be part of a stolen car ring that’s been hitting the tri-state the last few months.”

The perps did not specifically target Friedland but were after his silver 2012 Range Rover, worth about $65,000, the source said.

“[It is] believed to be a random attack. No clue as to who they were,” the source said.

http://nypost.com/2013/12/16/man-fatally-shot-at-nj-mall-idd/

One of the perps squeezed off several shots, one of which struck the young lawyer in the head, said acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray.

The crooks then jumped into the SUV and fled, followed by a speeding green Subaru that authorities said may have been the vehicle the brought the robbers there.

“It was at least two gunshots. People started ducking and panicking,” Rick Ramos, who works at the mall’s California Pizza Kitchen, told The Post.

Those who aren't familiar with New Jersey may not be aware of this, but the 10-mile distance between the mall and Newark isn't of any consequence. The two locations are connected by a major limited-access highway, which makes the mall a target of opportunity for any mutants who can make their way out there from Newark.

Yea but there's still the $12.00 in tolls per way.

Television crews from local CBS, ABC and NBC affiliates staked out the building this morning before the building concierge asked them to leave around noon.

Officials told the Jersey Journal they were asking the public and reporters to give building residents some privacy after Dustin Friedland was shot and killed Sunday night after spending time shopping at the Mall at Short Hills in Millburn.

A police officer at the building told the Jersey Journal the entire building is empty today and building management asked that residents’ privacy be respected.

The couple moved to the building in October. City police sat outside the building early Monday afternoon not permitting anyone to enter who was not a resident, officials told Jersey Journal reporter Chinedum Emelumba.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2013/12/building_where_hoboken_couple_lived_is_quiet_night_after_murder_carjacking.html

Killed in the attack was 30-year-old Dustin Friedland, a lawyer from Hoboken who had worked recently at his family’s HVAC company analyzing construction-related legal claims, according to his LinkedIn profile. Friedland’s wife, Jamie Schare Friedland, is listed as an attorney specializing in landlord-tenant law at a firm in New York City. Both attended law school at Syracuse University, according to their online profiles.

A woman who answered the phone at Epic Mechanical in Neptune, N.J., declined to comment and said Friedland’s father, who also works there, was not in the office. No one answered at several phone numbers listed for other relatives.

Sunday’s encounter was the latest in a troubling pattern in Essex County, whose borders encompass crime-plagued Newark to the east as well as Short Hills and other affluent suburbs to the west. Carjackings have risen steeply in the past several years, leading local authorities to create a multi-agency task force three years ago after a spate of crimes that included brazen daytime attacks and the carjacking of a snowplow two days after a Christmas blizzard.

The partnership succeeded in arresting and prosecuting three groups responsible for most of the carjackings, and the crime rate fell temporarily. Since then, it has ticked up, with 416 last year in Essex County, a 44 percent increase from 2010.

Nearly 300 carjackings were reported through July 31 of this year, according to the county prosecutor’s office. In August, authorities announced a program that uses billboards to display mug shots of convicted carjackers next to the number of years they are serving in federal prison.

There are no tolls on that part of Rt. 78 - only where it becomes the NJ Turnpike extension (east of Newark). The NJ Turnpike is a toll road. Millburn/Short Hills is west of Newark.

Unarmed and rich in a bad part of town

Short Hills is hardly a bad part of town, but I suppose, given Christie's hostility to CCW and the draconian gun laws in NJ, you could call it kind of a happy hunting ground.

Back when people knew they would be punished for their crimes either by the state or the victims’ families; there was little crime. One could leave their house unlocked or their car running while they ran into the cleaners.

Actually, some racist radio station passed on the description of two “African American males,” meaning that police are not going to be stopping and proning out little old blue-haired ladies, but, instead, concentrating their focus on white citizens of African countries who are now US citizens.

“Police say they have no motive. Redistribution. That’s the motive.”

It is worse than that. In order to convince people to kill Jews, Gypsys, and Slavs, the Nazis had to convince them (within a few short years) that those groups were less than human. We are now dealing with the third or fourth successive generation of urban blacks who’ve been taught that about whites since birth.

“BTW, Fox 5 News in NY this morning described the perps as “dark skinned.” So there you have it — the motive was wealth redistribution.”

That is the LAST conclusion I draw from the perp description. To me it simply confirms this is part of the low-profile race war being waged along the perimeters of our urban welfare reservations. The fact that the car was recovered fairly quickly to me indicates that the theft was simply a by-product of racial murder. Sounds nuts, but makes as much sense as anything else.

Ahhh, I see what you were thinking. The hit men had no direct interest in the IP.

Still, the lawyers aren't the ones making the really big bucks. They just make the arguments. The inventors and property owners are the ones that either get fleeced or make it big.

I would think that family lawyers have way more risk of a retaliatory attack, compared with the risk (due to their practice) that an IP lawyer has.

“Hubby tried to resist, and that can’t be tolerated.”

I saw this hitting the news to try to downplay the racial angle. While the “experts” say give up the car/wallet/phone/whatever, the guy had no idea whether or not they were taking the wife with the car. Twenty years ago my then-girlfriend had one of Obama’s sons try to get in her passenger door; apparently he wanted more than just the car. She managed to get away, but it was disturbing because it happened in an area where it was unheard of.

Read enough news stories, and you realize you may as well resist; too many of these people have been conditioned to hate you with a passion just because of the color of your skin.

If you read all the posts here, it will come together for you.

Update: the husband had put the woman in the passenger seat and was returning to the driver’s seat when the gunmen appeared. His impulse, apparently, was to resist because his wife was in the car. With the high profile murder, it is assumed the killers abandoned it.

The vehicle carjacked is apparently a valued one overseas. Thieves steal it and deliver it to Port Elizabeth where it is shipped.

I’d like to know why no description of the perps has been released. There were several witnesses including the wives. For shame, Star Ledger!

Of course my comment was subjective, we all have our preferences. I work in subprime auto finance, where part of the equation that tells what we will finance on a vehicle is the make and model of the unit financed. Rovers rank at the bottom along with stuff made by Chrysler that isn’t a Jeep, Jaguars etc. Cars with high repair, maint and ins. costs. Aside from that, any used car dealer will tell you they cross their fingers that nothing breaks on the unit before they sell it.
Keep in mind that ALL cars today are miles ahead in reliability from 25 years ago, they are all good. But per mile, the Rovers will leave you out a buck faster than just about anything.
Personally I don’t like driving them for their lumpy, overweight feel. The gas mileage blows too. FYI I grew up in the body shop business and have been a clean up crew, bodyman, technician, salesman, Finance Manager and General Manager at the dealership level before moving on to a finance company that solely works with used cars, so I know of what I speak. As we say in the car business “there is an ass for every seat” The car in my garage doesn’t score much better, but it makes me make the same smile my 78 Trans Am gave me when I was 19. And girls like it, so it makes sense to me. Cars aren’t always a rational decision. I just know Rovers are a lousy investment and I don’t like them.

Friedland was a patent attorney, joining the intellectual property law firm Lerner, David, Littenberg, Krumholz & Mentlik in 2009. Friedland then became a project manager at Epic Mechanical, a firm devoted to analyzing “construction-related legal claims.” According to the Daily Mail’s interview with Jaime’s uncle, Epic Mechanical is a business owned by Dustin’s father, which Dustin “selflessly” chose to partner with, even though the work was not in the area of law on which he was expert.
