Camden is at 20. Seems to be floating around the same number as last year

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...36088&page=379

2012 numbers

Camden, NJ: 67 murders: population- 77,283: 86.6 per 100,000
Chester, PA: 24 murders: population- 34,184: 70.2 per 100,000
Coatesville, PA: 7 murders: population- 13,216: 52.9 per 100,000
Atlantic City, NJ: 18 murders: population- 39,527: 45.5 per 100,000
Pleasentville, NJ: 8 murders: population- 20,234: 39.5 per 100,000
Wilmington, DE: 26 murders: population- 71,305: 36.4 per 100,000
Philadelphia, PA: 331 murders: population- 1,547,607: 21.3 per 100,00
Reading, PA: 18 murders: population- 88,414: 20.3 per 100,000
Norristown, PA: 4 murders: population- 34,258: 11.5 per 100,000
Upper Darby, PA: 6 murders: population- 81,821: 7.3 per 100,000

Now that I look at that numbers, it is funny that two areas that get heavily criticized on this forum, Philadelphia and Upper Darby, are actually towards the bottom of the list. I hope all these cities see a drop in murders. Looks like Camden won't be though.

All numbers can be found here:

The murder rate in this town has always been kind of meaningless because no one keeps track of who is an innocent victim and who isn't quite so innocent. Put another way how many of the murder victims are we better off without?

Busy night for temple hospital? Haha. I would say the get exactly, because when it gets too hot crime actually decreases, but I would say it had to do with the mild weather overnight absolutely. What I want to know though, is why these people were outside at 2am on a Thursday morning? No one works? They don't need sleep? All these incidents occurred in North Philly as well which leads me to believe these were likely drug related

Agreed, but I have no remorse for them. They chose to get involved in drugs and become thugs. They knew the consequences that comes with that territory (incarceration, murder, etc.)

Indeed... I'm actually rather sympathetic to the petty drug dealers. It is a huge business, and these people are just getting coins in their pockets compared to those doing the trafficking and what not. I can understand why someone would feel it necessary or be drawn to go down such a path. It is easy to say from a position of privilege that one could do otherwise, but sometimes these people committing these actions do not realise the full scope of potentiality and submit themselves to a plagued mindset. One's ability to perceive is merely a culmination of environment and exposure. When this is limited, it follows that one's perception is necessarily going to be limited. I feel that something such as Columbus' Egg would be a relevant story to this topic. On the other hand, there are people who don't fit this description and even if they do, it can be difficult to forgive such behavior because of its direct influence upon your own well-being.

In the end though, it is all rather meaningless.

I heard on the weather report that it will be hotter in North Philly tonight than any other section of the city.
