I live in the area and see both cities with regularity so I'm confident in the assertions I've made. Go ahead and take pot shots from a distance, however. I am not the bickering sort, but you may find a taker.
I grew up there and went to the school there my entire life. Also have plenty of family and friends on WPD past and present.

Wilmington isn't Camden "yet" but it's very similar city with gun violence out the wazoo and I don't see that problem ever being fixed because the communities inside Wilmington won't help themselves with it. The police department has been hugely effected and they can't pay officers what they deserve and their equipment is sub par.

And I actually like certain parts of Wilmington,
It's home for me. But I'm not naive enough to think the city isn't struggling. Ill actually be up there for the holidays in a week or so.
