Camden, NJ was recently featured in the New York Times (see link above). Camden in on pace for a record number of murders this year, 48 so far, on pace to break the record, 58.
Considering the fact that Camden is only 9 sq miles and has less than 77,000 residents, the city's murder rate per capita is downright disturbing.
There have been many attempts to combat the increased violence over the years but no tactics to date has proven to be effective.
After putting a good deal of thought and action into finding an alternative solution to fix the mess there, I think the best and only viable remedy at this point is to invest heavily in the youth of Camden: Increase the standards of the public education system. Require every child under 18 to attend school (dropping out of high school is illegal). Pour state and federal resources and aid into beefing up charter schools, public school and non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of Camden's youth.
The youth of Camden is the city's only hope for a bighter (and safer) future.
