Camden, New Jersey Starts Them Young

By Wyatt Earp | July 25, 2009

Camden PDSmite A. Hippie sent me this, and it took me a day or so to regain consciousness after reading it. Apparently, the city of Camden, New Jersey has so many of its citizens in prison that their kids have to take over the family business.

Take this kid, who robbed another kid of his skateboard . . . point of gun! Oh, and did I mention the kid is only 10-years old? Didn’t think so.

A 10-year-old boy is facing charges after robbing an 11-year-old at gunpoint in Camden. The incident happened at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday evening near MacArthur Drive and Wainwright Street.

According to police, the young suspect stole a skateboard from the victim at gunpoint. The suspect was later identified by other youngsters in the area and police took the young suspect into custody.

He is facing numerous charges including armed robbery. (H/TCBS3)

Are you freakin’ kidding me? Why aren’t the police officers, juvenile aid workers, and this little bastard’s parents stomping a mudhole in this kid’s arse? Cripes, if he is pulling gunpoint robberies at 10, what will he be doing at 12, drive-by shootings?

On a related note, my friend Bill and I are taking Kyle and Erik to the Camden Riversharks game tonight. Maybe I should bring my gun, nightstick, and cuffs?

    They say the family that “preys together stays together!”
    (I think that’s how it goes!)

    You’re going into Camden?

    I’ll say some prayers now.

    Have to agree with Rick – get the bullet proof vest, too!

    Don’t get lost when leaving and venture into an undesirable neighborhood. Oh, wait – all of Camden is undesirable!

    Have a good time and be safe.

    Shocking such a thing could even happen, in a state that has such strict gun laws. /sarcasm

    Stupid kid though, screw the skateboard, he coulda scored a thousand dollars.

    Rick – Mine is at the division. Dang.

    JimmyB – Well, it’s hot outside.

    Proof – Not that these toads go to church. :)

    The Girl – Probably are, because they are in denial. “Not my boy! he’s a good kid!”

    Daisy – Game was great, but traffic sucked. Toby Keith was playing at the Tweeter Center, or whatever the Hell it’s called now.

    Smite – Gettin’ paid, gettin’ paid!

    Admiral – Camden makes Philly look like Butte, Montana.

    Joated – You just know that’s what they’ll say!
