Last year, we reported that Camden, New Jersey was identified by the Kansas-based Morgan Quitno’s city crime rankings as the Most Dangerous City in the United States. This year, Camden did the Garden State proud by again being named the nationâ€™s Most Dangerous City.
However, Camden city officials are less than pleased with the â€œhonor.â€ They complained that the survey was not fair and failed to take into account the progress that was made since last yearâ€™s survey.
Camden is the County Seat of Camden County, a democrat stronghold and the home turf of political boss George Norcross. In the past election, Jon Corzine beat Doug Forrester by twenty-six percentage points in Camden County, which suggests to me that the residents of the county must be happy with the status quo and the concern shown for them by
Boss Mr. Norcross. Go figure.
So, what about next year? Maybe the city can score a hat trick.
