    Not anything interesting really, I just am shocked. I mean I have seen some beaten down areas in America like Detroit and parts of St Louis, but man, Camden looks like a bombed out third world country. :shocked: The median household income is about $16,000. The political corruption must be insane there now. This place was once thriving.

    And no one believes me when I say Camden is worse than Detroit.

    There you go. Looks like it's been bombed, doesn't it?

    It's got to be worse than Detroit. It seriously looks bombed out and third world. Crazy.

    You're right, it does. It's insane. They gotta do something about that place. It looks unlivable.

    Yeah, it's unbelievable that all it takes sometimes is for one or two companies to pull up stakes and split for an entire town to fall to shit.

    Happened to Jamesburg, NJ also when that old snuff mill left. But at least it isn't a massive crime area; it's just rundown.

    NO ONE who lives in Camden can afford a pack of cigarettes, let alone cocaine.

    Camden was a shit hole 30 years ago. This is what ever big city in America will look like when the effects of diversity and life long Democratic policies take hold. Just check the demographics of all the big cities that are failing and tell me what they have in common. Camden. Newark. Trenton. Detroit. Chicago etc etc etc
