Camden New Jersey - America's Most Dangerous City
Josh Pringle
Monday, November 22, 2004

Camden, New Jersey has been named America's most dangerous city.

According to a company's annual ranking based on crime statistics, Camden snatched the top spot from Detroit.

Atlanta, St. Louis and Gary, Ind. rounded out the top five in the most dangerous city rankings by Morgan Quitno Corp.

The rankings look at the rate for six crime categories: Murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and auto theft. It compares 350 cities with populations of 75,000 or more that reported crime data to the FBI.

Whats the most dangerous city in your country?

In France, no doubt, the most dangerous is Moncuq.
In second position, probably a town in the suburbs of Paris, Lyon or Marseille.

Isn't that the truth...... However, I'll bet if you averaged out the last 20, maybe 30 years, Detroit would be the run away winner.

In Denmark you have to look out for:

1.Vollsmose(Part of Odense)
2.Blågården(Part of Copenhagen)
3.Gjellerupparken(Part of Århus)

Unfortunatly we have alot of problems with 2.generation foreigners who commites crime all the time in those places. Not even the Buses goes thru those neighbourhoods anymore after so many busdrivers has gotten their ass kicked and robbed.

And the Ambulance and Firebrigade does not enter that area without police protection. A couple of years ago a paramedic got hurt badly after a idiot threw a brick in his face. And the firetrucks are being bombarded by bricks and rocks as well.

They why does Denmark let these people in? Turning once safe areas into unsafe ethnic enclaves. What is Denmark trying to accomplish?



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Why did Canada let so many foreigners in?

@OYRJA

Is it really so bad? I know there are some areas in Germany which I wouldn't regard as safe, but I've never heard such bad things.  Confused

I am about 1-2 miles outside of Camden. Not surprised by it's ranking..it's kinda amusing. I listen to my local police on the scanner, and every time something gets stolen, or someone is on the run, the first thing they do is to cut off any exits to the 'city'. That seems to be the escape route for every criminal in my area nowadays. So many shootings, rapes, murders, beatings happen there you become numb to it. They have been trying their best to revitalize it, the best of example of this is the camden waterfront, where things are really turning around; the River Sharks stadium, the Aquarium, and the USS New Jersey just to name a few. Maybe it will get better over the years, and who knows, one day it might just return to the beautiful city in was in it's prime.

Prosimtec:

You know (hopefully), I live in the Detroit Metro area too! Quit trying to sound like a travel brochure and open your eyes. Detroit is not only THE most dangerous city in the country, but the most corrupt. If you want to single me our for an argument, then you've got one. Unfortunately, it's at the expense of this thread. However, I can be contacted through this website.

It starts a the top man!

Case(s) in point:

Suburbs can't get a straight answer from the Water and Sewage Dept. regarding the rates they charge.

Oakland County, as you correctly pointed out as the 4th wealthiest in the nation, and by the way where the company I own is based. Has recently had added an additional 3 years payment on the LAST Cobo expansion, from the wonderful City of Detroit, without the Counties consent. And who now, also want additional funding from Oakland County for FUTURE expansion of Cobo. And oh yeah! Did I point out that Detroit won't open the books on Cobo for anyone to see how the money is being spent! Brook Patterson has hired Plant and Moran to investigate before spending any more of his taxpayers money.

Shall I go into the Mayor Kwame and his family members who run a charity, whislt drawing 6 figure salaries from said charity?

Shall we talk about how the casinos, who by the way, STILL haven't built permanent structures after 9 years, STOLE the election and AMENDED the Michigan constitution by spending 20 million dollars to protect themselves from competition?

Shall we talk about the soon to be bankrupt school system, that has lost over 9000 students, while the CEO has 30,000 dollars worth of work done to his office?

I haven't even gotten to the Police or Prosecuters Dept yet.

Where do you want to begin?

In the US, I always heard Oakland, CA (Raiders Nation) was the most Most Dangerous City In America?

Well.... Pelican just answered my question. And another thing is that 2. generation refugees are born in Denmark. So we can't throw them out  Sad
Even if many danes really want to change the rules for that.

Oh yeah! If you ask any dane you will get exactly the same story I just told you guys. It's terrible and nothing you can do about it unfortunatly  Sad

Having been all over the Western United States as recently as three weeks ago, I never really felt safe in the small logging villages like Susanville or Roseburg. I had to spend the night in Oakland near Golden Gate Field once. That was cool. I actually left the truck there and took BART into San Francisco. Never felt threatened and the truck remained in one piece. I never spent much time in Los Angeles but when I did, the people were always nice. Salt Lake City was just wierd. Mormons vs. Homeless made for an eerie scene. I did feel out of place in Denver. The one drunk guy did make me feel threatened. Overall, I have felt safe in the big cities in the West.

GO CANUCKS!!
