I took a course in college where we studied the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex in St. Louis, MO that was built in the early 50's. I suggest anyone who is either a former resident of Willingboro or someone who's interested in the subject of failed housing schemes to read up on it.(It's easily found online) It has fascinating parallels to the Willingboro "experiment" and how things can go horibly wrong when a large group of urban, poorly educated, lazy, law-breakng blacks try to live together in an area alongside law-abiding, hardworking whites.

Yet another Troll above. To bad your entire premise is not rooted in fact

Sorry to tell you this and perhaps it pains you to face the facts. But the Pruitt-Igoe projects were an absolute disaster. They lasted about 20 years before they had to be torn down. 20 friggin years!
For many reasons you can't house poor inner-city people in high rises. It causes way to many problems.
Perhaps you would care to inform us all just why it is that poor inner-city people often can't live in high rises.

Sorry to tell you the but every "project" or experiment was a failure. Seems inheritly designed for failure to densely house poor people together. Don't know why you are trying to draw a parrallel between projects and Willingboro. The two have nothing in common. Yup just looked out my window and don't see any high rises.

Projects were built to house poor inner city people and Willingboro was built as a segregated town. Like I said to the other troll his premise isn't rooted in fact. Projects and Willingboro have nothing in common. Oh I know you see black faces so history and facts don't matter much. This town was built 60 years ago and is still here, sorry we're not going anywhere.

Funny you come to the defense of the racist idiot above you. Try re reading his last sentence. Says tons about you both. By his premise there should be no crime in south Boston, all those law abiding hardworking whites.

Willingboro is a ghetto, has been since the late seventies. Everyone knows it. You can always judge a town or city by it's school system. Would you honestly send your children to Willingboro schools? Be honest - would you? Of course not.
The only people who send their children to Willingboro schools are black people who cant afford private schools. Any white kid who has the misfortune of having to attend Willingboro schools had better be either a star athete or a mixed-martial arts expert.
It's sad about what happened there. It was a great place to grow up when I lived there. Thank God I left when I did.
It is the shittiest of shitholes! It is ruined for good.

It is unfortunate but true that once a town/city goes majority black major problems will arise. Under performing schools,high crime etc.

I've been watching Willingboro like a reality show from a working class household in Burl Twp since 1973. I work at the hospital. I see and hear everything that goes on whether I care to or not. What's happening today is an ever-growing influx of uneducated, non-working, crime-prone rejects from Camden, North Philly, Trenton and Newark. What's different from the crime in Willingboro compared to any other town is the degree of violence and randomness committed not by home-owning residents or leaseholding renters, but by transients, who move from town to town every few months. I've talked to people who know lots of houses where anyone can claim floor space for a few nights or weeks. They stay until the heat gets too close, and they leave for a few months, only to return. It's like a dirty little secret no one wants to admit. The people who let all these petty criminals into their homes think that they're helping humanity or, even worse, have illegitimate children with them. I talked to a guy who claims to have 10 children in Willingboro alone, and many more in the other towns he frequents over the course of a year. I'm not here to judge, but if this is the new "normal," it will only get worse.

That place always was a shithole, it was the people who lived there in the 60's-70's who thought they were upper class, but the people from Moorestown, Cherry hill, Marlton, Evesham, etc etc, use to spit on guys like you!!!!!!! Ya'll even swan in the nasty cesspool Holiday Lake.
Piece of work you are. Bragging about Moorestown? Get a life, loser.

You're clearly a racist so I shouldn't even respond to this post but you bring up an interesting point regarding Pruitt-Igoe.

In the course of my father's graduate studies he actually lived there for a time shortly before it was demolished. It was indeed a failed experiment but not because of the fact that it housed African-Americans; It failed because it was poorly planned, poorly funded, rooted in segregation and just another example of failed American post-war housing policy. Also, take note that the project was ramrodded through by DEMOCRATIC mayor Joe Darst.

It's surprising that a racist like you has even heard of the project. That class was probably the only one you stayed awake for,

Towns predominantly black equals a high crime rate and poor schools. Period. Give me a predominantly black town with a low crime rate and good schools in NJ...Ya can't give me one.

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.

I grew up in Willingboro, from 1960 - 1978, and was very much enthralled with the case of the Theresa Casero (sp?) murder, as she was just a few years older than me. Its hard to find any info on it, its a shame it was never solved. It had something to do with a neighbor, or they suspected the neighbor.
This case was bungled from the beginning. The NJ State Police and Willingboro Police failed to follow up on viable leads. The Security Guard from Rancocas hospital was a prime suspect, as well as a neighbor who was later ruled out by DNA. The State police need to reinterview the Security Guad, and his wife who was probaly threatened by him if she did not keep her husbands grisly secrets. This case is so bad that the FBI uses it as a role model on how not to conduct a murder case. 40 years and no answers! Why?

3000 dead in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. That chicken hawk didn't keep anyone safe. John Kerry volunteered for Vietnam while bush stayed drunk and AWOL from natl guard. 2 Purple Hearts and a silver star for Kerry a DUI for bush.

Could you tell Wall Street that we are socialist now because they seem to be practicing capitolisim at historic levels.

My taxes still haven't gone up. I guess u make over 400k good for u.

Please explain how Obama could have stopped the Boston bombing.

Btw I guess u just started paying attention but n Korea has been doing this for a long time. We actually fought a war against them and we only have a ceasefire in place right now. After Clinton got them under control bush came in with his axis of evil crap and got them all riled up again.
