In Newark, More Weariness Than Anger at Sentence
Man on the street interviews by the Times in reaction the James sentence. Newark is ready to have this behind us.

James Williams, who came to Newark from Camden, another city with a history of troubled governance, said the only thing that mattered was that Mr. James had had a public trust and that he had betrayed it.

“I think public service has lost its etiquette,” he said. “When you work for the people, integrity is paramount. My grandmother always said what doesn’t come out in the wash will come out in the rinse. If you don’t want the light to shine on you, be sure you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing.”
