Social Status of Individuals Involved

Number of Incidents Per Day

The data shown on this graph demonstrates different circumstances surrounding the Newark Riot in 1967. Looking back to the previous data collected on the riot I see a clearer pattern of what went down in 1967. After a day the violence seemed to have a large instant spike of violence after 7:30 on Friday after that there was a massive increase in violence. The events in Newark led to the deaths of many civilians and police just from the data alone should classify it as a riot. With how quickly events escalated and led to the first deaths should demonstrate the levels of violence that occurred, the classification of Newark as a riot is deserved and did not alter my previous opinions.
