Crime-Ravaged Camden, N.J., Scraps Police Department To

Save Money

By Business Insider

 

A New Jersey city that reported a murder rate of 46.8 per

100,000 people in 2010 is now without a police department.

Camden, N.J., often dubbed the most dangerous city in the

country, is disbanding its police department in a bid to shave

millions of dollars off the annual budget, FoxNews.com

reported Sunday. The department will be replaced with the

non-union "Metro Division" of the Camden County Police,

which police unions in the area say is "definitely a form of

union-busting."

Forty-nine percent of officers currently employed by the city will

be transferred to the new division. Those who are not

transferred "are going to have to be the ones who train their

replacements," Camden Fraternal Order of Police President

John Williamson told FoxNews.com.

The state has been in charge of Camden's police department

since 2005 when then-governor Gwendolyn Faison asked the

state to take over.

Gov. Chris Christie has supported the new organizational

structure, saying it will actually increase the number of police

officers on the streets.

Williamson said that his organization was willing to make

compensation concessions to avoid dissolution of the

department. But he was shut down.

"We tried to give them what they wanted, but they asked that

we drop all and any lawsuits that officers have against the city,"

Williamson told FoxNews.com.

Not really how I read it. They are saying this will ensure more officers on the beat, no?

Holy shit I wish I was in Philly right now.

For those who don't know, Camden NJ is basically East Philly.

There is no East Philly because it's a river and then Camden on the other side.

It's actually cheaper to take the PATCO train to Camden than it is to take the El to anywhere in Philly.

Because 99.9999% of them are junkies and crackheads.

And the rest are kids who will eventually follow in their parents footsteps.

The other people already moved out a long, long time ago.

Why are you wishing to be there now that they've increased the amount of Police officers on the streets?

 

To be honest, I can't say I've ever actually seen a Camden cop in my life, and I've gone bombin over there a few times and it was like a graffiti playground.

 

But to answer your question, even if that were the case I don't see some scab ass cops being anywhere near as brave (read arrogant) as FOP backed cops are.

The reason why cops tend to buck and ask questions never is because they have FOP lawyers to ensure that they never see the light of trial.

I'm usually fully supportive of unions being as they are 100% responsible for weekends, a minimum wage, 40 hour work week, and any other workers rights that ever existed in this country... but if there's one union that I'm 100% against it's the fucking FOP. They are the reason why we live in the oppressive police state we do where any trigger happy highschool jock or shell shock Iraq war vet is welcome with open arms and protected no matter what the fuck they do in violation of the constitution that they're supposedly sworn to uphold.

I did think of that, I just think the wording is getting people a bit excited. It's not like the place is going to be completely uncontrolled/patrolled - if anything, by the numbers, it can't really get any worse?
