    Camden, NJ.... Most Dangerous City in U.S.

    CAMDEN -- A national study ranks this city as the nation's most dangerous city in 2008.

    The annual rankings from CQ Press are based on FBI-compiled crime data and population figures. Some criminologists say the methodology is unfair.

    Camden is no stranger to the top of the list. It was the most dangerous city for 2003 and 2004 and is consistently in the top 10. The bad ranking comes during a year when the number of murders has dropped amid major changes to the police department.

    The study found Camden had more than 2,300 violent crimes for every 10,000 residents last year.

    St. Louis, Oakland, Calif., Detroit and Flint, Mich., round out the top five.

    The safest city with more than 75,000 residents was Colonie, N.Y.[/QUOTE]

    Again, huh? Pretty interesting. Did you know that the NJ government has taken over the Camden PD in an effort to reform it and cut down on crime? I guess their methods aren't helping, either.

    I know Christie has said that when he become governor he'd like to turn the police department back over to the city of Camden.
