I was born in Willingboro, and I graduated from Kennedy so don't tell me anything. Willingboro is a crap hole now. We left Willingboro, because it was a nasty ghetto. Live in your nasty ghetto.

I bought a repo on a working man's salary in Willingboro, NJ back in 1987 and fixed it up. I lived there for a decade with my wife and child. A decade later we were the last whites to move out of our block. It became unsafe for white people to live there because of the violent black thugs moving in from the slums. They turned the town into a suburban ghetto.

It had nothing to do with it being unsafe for white folk, you just don't like living around an area that is majority black. I'm one of two white families living on my street in Willingboro and have never fear this so called scary black thug.

Moving from Trenton to the boro recently and it's nothing like where I came from quiet and not nearly as many killings so for what it's worth peace of mind is there .

Anyone with a brain would have left willingboro long ago. What a minimum wage dump. A town where only ignorant morons live because they can't afford a real house.

Dear remaining people of WIllingboro,

You live there because you are life's losers! We try to keep all the ignorant losers in one place and so far we call that place Willingboro, NJ.

Open you windows and smell the rot, you've arrived in Po' ville!

Please tell me more bout Willingboro. I didn't grow up poor. I knew some people you would consider poor. Some people that are poor some people that are middle class and some people that are rich are bad people. There are people of every strata that blame others and that aren't responsible etc... Keep pushing your the poor and the black are the only problem, hence your inclusion of Obama in EVERY topic. You post nonsense with nothing to back it up EVER. You love to make statements with EVERY and ALL concerning groups of people, obviously you start from a fallacy. You make it like every poor person is completely content and happy to be lazy and get govt aide well ALL except you, yup you're the exception. Our president came from merger beginnings did he not? So did Clinton. Obama even from a single mother which u said in the other thread something about ALL single mothers guess again there's the exception. Truth is I don't believe for a second you grew up poor, no way someone from nothing would treat people with nothing like nothing. You and the rest of the beat the poor crowd act like its just a walk in the park to have nothing. Is it worse that the government gives people that need help help or tax breaks to the richest companies in the history of the world? GE pays no effective tax and we give BILLIONS to Exxon mobile. There's your problem you only care if a poor person gets a tax dollar not a rich person getting the same tax dollar. You don't mind working to pay for tanks that will never ever be used in anyway instead of a child going to school after a nutritious breakfast.
You throw around words like tyranny and socialism like you have one clue of their meanings. I have all the rights I had on 1/19/09. Please list the rights Obama took away from you. The list must be very long since we're living in tyranny. I'm looking at my bill of rights here and check, check, check...check yup still all here.
Wow, this litlle girl's panties must be in wad, what a bunch of hot air!

We all know what happened to willingboro. Some will blame poor construction by Levitt. Others the age of the housing stock. Some will blame white flight.
Just look at Trenton or Camden and you will find your answers.

Is life nothing more than a dick measuring contest? My town is better than yours blah blah blah. Obviously you are unhappy about something in your life that you must come here and tell us what a terrible place we live.

How about this

There is crime in Willingboro, there is crime in almost every town. As a resident of Willingboro the crime level does not make me feel unsafe or give any thought to moving because of it. This feeling/decision is based on 25 years in the township over 4 different decades I have never felt unsafe, been a victim or personally known anyone that was a victim of crime in town or involving a resident or former resident. Posting every bad check, dine and dash, violent act, DUI or any other thing else isn't going to make a difference. Keep up the goofy work though I time you to see how quick you can post something after I see it in online newspapers.

I was never so glad to leave a place as I was when my family left Willingboro in 1974 when I was 15. By that time the demographics where shifting wildly and things were going sideways fast. Just my opinion, but the "white flight" was the death of a once vibrant, honest community.
