I don't why this c**p came recommended but all I have to say is that some of that stuff said about Camden is not true. I've lived there for a long time, trust me, there's a lot of people bringing drugs into the city so they can frame the people living there. There's no dna testing truck, I've been to each part of Camden and there hasn't been a single one. The education is fine for me, like I got accepted into a high stats art school and so many others that go to that school had gotten a free college scholarship!!
