Yea collingdale is a bad town. I was on the bus when I seen the crime scene at the family thrift store while I drove by. I was robbed two octobers ago by two black dudes. The demanded money because I was getting back from the local cornerstore. I didnt have money I had a food stamp card, they took two candy bars. A bunch of people got robbed by the same spear chuckin pieces of shit that very night. Collingdale police still havent caught them.

There's a reason some parts of Delaware County is getting bad. It's mostly due to folks on Section 8. Let me be more specific. It's due to the folks on Section 8 in Philly who transfer to Delaware County.

Upper Darby, Collingdale, and Darby have large numbers of Section 8 tenants. Those are the towns that are really going downhill...
