Camden, NJ braces for deep police, fire cuts

Yet another crisis is upon this burdened city, among the most impoverished and crime-ridden in the country.

Deep layoffs of city workers go into effect on Tuesday - cutting up to 383 jobs, or one-fourth of the city's employees.

Police cuts might be a good thing for Camden.  In 1974/5 the Albaquerque, NM police dept went on strike with all but nine officers and management staff walking out.  The result? - they had a crime rate drop of about 40%.  When one well known bad-boy was asked why he wasen't taking advantage of the strike he replied, "The people got their guns out."  How do I know?  I was there.
