Note to criminals: move to Camden

Why? It sounds like they just fired a bunch of them.

MrEricSir: TheJoe03: Ugh, reminds me of what's going on up in Oakland.

Exactly what I came here to say. Seems like Camden is the East Coast version of Oakland.

Actually Oakland is the west coast version of Camden. Seriously, I've driven recently through Oakland. While I wouldn't want to walk the streets there, I wouldn't feel too threatened.

The only part of Camden I'll pass through is I-676 to get to or from the Ben Franklin Bridge. I most certainly wouldn't get out of my car - I'd run on rims if I got a flat, ignore any collision that didn't result in my car becoming non-operational.

The best thing that could be done with Camden right now is be used as a way to train up a few regiments of MPs for the Army. Deploy 5000 of them there and treat it like a 3rd world intervention - just a shorter supply chain (McGuire AFB/Fort Dix is about 30 minutes NE). Army gets something useful, NJ gets something useful, and that hell hole is cleaned out.

Oh, yeah, the army corp of engineers also need to level about 30% of the town. Level it, turn it into empty fields. Carve it back up and sell to developers. After you clean out the place it could go nice high end - it is well positioned and near Philadelphia. Could be really nice.

The other option is recondition one of the guns on the Battleship NJ that's on the waterfront. Just start shelling.

They could just solve the problem permanently and deport all the black people to Africa.
