Camden on a good day

Camden Council packed with protesters against planned taxes, cuts, police takeover:

Once again the city of Camden, New Jersey shows just how clueless its leaders are.

Now that they have laid off half of their police force and the city is still under siege by criminals the city is now looking to spread their problem to the rest of Camden County.

Now while Camden County may sound like it’s different versions of Camden that is not true. There are actually some quite affluent areas in Camden County like Cherry Hill. So Camden is trying to leech off the rest of the county by trying to get the county to institute a county-wide police force.

As someone who has spent a lot of time in one of the nicer sections of Camden County lately let me be one of the many to say “Hell no”.

Not only should the rest of Camden County not have to bail out Camden’s police woes this would be the first step into Camden’s crime creeping out into the other communities.

As an aside, my brother came up with exactly what Camden’s problem is. He says that it’s not just the fact that more than half of Camden’s properties are non-tax paying but the fact that Camden has no ‘good’ section of the city. In cities like Philadelphia and even Detroit, there are enclaves of civility and security. Not so in Camden. It’s nothing but a war zone. You can’t bring new revenue into a city that can’t guarantee the safety of at least some of its citizens.

        It looks like a third world country.  How horrible.  I must be more sheltered than I thought because I didn’t even know there were places in America that looked like this.  I mean I have seen ghettos (or what I thought were ghettos) but this…. this is just bad.

        1. Unfortunately there are probably too many places in America that look like this however Camden epitomizes all of them.

    As I mentioned before in a comment on “State Police Being Sent Into Camden,” the city is already creeping into other sections of the state. Lindenwald is a prime example. They built low-income housing, claiming it would allow families from Camden to improve their quality of life and blahblahblah. When the area’s citizens fight, they turn around and say “JUST KIDDING! We are building these low-income units for senior citizens!” And once built, suddenly, minds change again, and busses start bringing people from Camden to see the apartments… A year goes by.. businesses start closing because they’ve been robbed so many times.. As the area circles the drain, families who’ve been living there for years start selling their homes cheap just to get out and more slime comes in. Eventually, it gets to the point where, as you’re driving, you can literally see a line where the “good areas” stop and the “mini-camden” begins.
