The Singular Case Of Camden New Jersey

Recommended Posts

In 2012 Camden defunded and dismantled its terminally corrupt police department to start over again in 2013.  The crime rate was one of the worst in the US while a warrior-minded, police force regularly committed atrocities, planted fake evidence and filed bogus reports.  Most Camden residents lived in fear of both widespread crime and a criminal police force, at the same time.

 

In the 7 years since the new Camden police department was instituted, crime has gone down by nearly 50%. 

 

"Community-Oriented Policing," which prizes partnership and problem-solving over violence and punishment.

The new police have a much larger representation of people of color, to serve the neighborhoods they patrol.  Police are trained in crisis de-escalation instead of provocation and are routinely assigned to take part in community activities and events, instead of breaking them up.  Police knock on doors to introduce themselves.  They participate in such disparate activities as taking part in protest marches to riding in ice cream trucks and mingling with purchasers. 

 

Constant training helps ensure that in any confrontation, force, especially deadly force is last option. Camden can serve as a model for cities across the US.

Consuming with a grain of salt, but I think this strategy will make it into my essay.

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
