Camden council approves laying off nearly half of police force

More real world results of Chris Christie's draconian cuts (yet magical still rising taxes).

And just as Camden lost the number one spot as the nation's most dangerous city.

"CAMDEN New Jersey's most impoverished and violent city plans to lay off one-fourth of city government workers, including about half the police department."


"The layoffs are to be effective Jan. 18. The state Civil Service Commission has already approved them.

There could be fewer layoffs if public employee unions agree to concessions."


"With a tiny tax base, it relies on the state for most of its funding. The state slashed aid this year because of a fiscal crisis of its own."

That state fiscal crisis referred to in the last line is aka "Chris Christie".
