its prison – i was imprisoned in camdem county jain for some time. During my stay, as a white inmate i enjoyed my time. The guards treat the white inmates very nicely, i also enjoyed joining the guards in daily beatings of minorities and i enjoyed watching the weekly "n!gger lynching" The black inmates never step out of line , because they know they will be the next victim. the cooks do not feed the non white inmates as much as they feed the whites, as it should be. Overal if you are a white inmate or believe in the power of the white race camden county prison is a great place for you

your not so tough on the outside – lets be honest, most people in the camden county jail (the inmates) have done something deserving of being there. BUT as a previous guest at ccj, the ignorant CO's are unbelievably lazy and extremely racist!!! If youre a white girl, ccj is not for YOU!!!! you are white trash and the other races are a product of their enviroment. FUCCJ!!

Every Human Deserves Basic Respect and Rights – I understand what each review which relies on degradation more than facts related to the jail itself are referring to, and to some degree, I agree. If you commit a crime, you deserve to pay for that. Otherwise, what is the point of a justice system at all?

My boyfriend was recently imprisoned. Quite honestly, I have never known anyone in jail and the only time I had visited a jail previously was to do volunteer bible studies with juvenile offenders. Now...I am of course aware this is an atypical visitor for a jail inmate.

However, I am also employed with a multi-billion dollar corporation and currently hold a Master's degree. The most interesting aspect in all of this is that during my significant other's imprisonment (which he has warned me was impending for over a year but I disagree with the general population in judging someone due to their past), I have received the exact same treament others are less intelligently (perhaps) and more passionately (absolutely) describing.

The truth is, I believe others will read my review and most likely pay more heed to it simply because I am obviously intelligent and educated. Let me ask each of you a question who are so quick to insult others:

If you have the intelligence and wherewithall to understand they are not as "accomplished" as you, should that not make you more responsible as well?

I have truly never even committed a crime where I could go to jail and am currently working with the prosecution in another state as a witness. I personally believe I am in the minority of the American population in being able to accurately state that as a fact.

No one...I repeat no one...deserves to be treated as less than HUMAN. If you disagree with that and think a 19-year-old who went along on a drug deal with his 30-year-old brother (hypothetically but completely plausible) and his mother who comes to visit him deserve to be treated as less than human...that makes you far more ignorant than the people who commit the crimes.

The only solace I can take in that is that your ignorance is generally incurable and you will be kept in your prison of a mind until you realize the world we truly live in. People makes mistakes...everybody...you, me, everybody.

I can only genuinely hope your children never get caught when they make theirs. Not everybody is blessed at birth. Please consider that when being cruel to people that cannot be heard. I have called and visited myself, and I commit to each and every person reading this review that is absolutely the case. They not only treat visitors (quite often) as thought they committed crimes themselves but also deny some basic civil liberties.

Please...anyone with someone in there and any of the good workers there (there are quite a few)...good luck to you, from the bottom of my heart.

hope i never end up there – my brother violated his probation by not reporting after he was released from rehab, the only crime he comited was against himself, he had been arrested for public drunkeness and placed in camden county jail for two months because he couldn't come up with bail. ok i"m not trying to make him sound innocent but the fact is that something can go wrong for any of us and that is no place to end up. so now he has to turn himself in to that jail to await sentancing for his probation violation which can take up to 2 more months.

the last time he was there he got scabees, and had to wear sneakers that were used and gave him a fungus on his foot. and what is bieng said about the commisary is true and the phone privelages as well. this money comes from the families of the inmates probably families already down one income.

the most amazing part to me (probably not a big deal considering the other things you have to endure) is that upon your arrival you are told to find your own cell, and the people in that cell can reject you from that cell.

i just think thatthey can do better in a county jail, save the tough stuff for prison. my understanding is that these people haven't all been convicted they have been charged and waiting for a hearing, or can't afford bail and have to wait months for there trial, a lot of them with crimes of public drunkness, or disorderly conduct. i haven"t been there myself but i know disorderly conduct covers a lot of ground.

Cry Babies – This is a jail. What do people expect, it's not a 4 star hotel. If you don't like it in jail, be a good citizen, not a scum bag.

A Truthful Assesment Of This Jail – I once had the terrible misfortune of staying there and it is horrible. They are overcrowded with people sleeping on the floor on matresses that are worn and torn. They have terrible food and the clothing that they give you for uniforms are worn out and dirty. The staff for the most part are some of the rudess people I have ever seen and I have live in 12 different states. You can't really get any attention and if you don't have someone on the outside working on your behalf you could possibly sit in there and die and no one would notice. I can't believe the government in New Jersey would allow such a nasty horrible place exist for anyone even if they have committed a crime. True story
