NJ Local News: Camden County Prosecutor Unit Exposed

tracy cogan nj- ocal news camden county prosecutor

While reading the NJ Local News, I was reminded of what my grandfather used to say, “I don’t give a fuck what you do in life, just as long as you’re the best at it!”  The former Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk must have known my grandfather because in 2014 the FBI awarded Camden City with the most prestigious title a city could ever strive for.  NJ Local News quoted, “It’s the best of the worst crime cities in the United States,” but that’s not all.


The NJ local news was overly publicized to: (1) divert attentions from the population regarding the corruption in Camden, (2) instill fear in the population they may become a victim of crime, which helps justify the increased police spending, and (3) set a statistical baseline for Camden County such that any increased spending on policing the city can be validated when the crime rate drops below the baseline.

Rats! We Have No Stinking Rats!

There was unexpected outcome from overly publicizing the NJ local news.  Here, the population’s fear rose to a level that it became a contagion infecting resident rats.  It’s true; rats actually began evacuating to neighboring cities to escape Camden.

Nevertheless, even after millions of rats scurried away at an alarming rate, the crime persisted, but the crime problem in Camden County New Jersey was never thought to be caused by the rats that left.

Another theory was posed where the crime-rate problem is attributed to the “population to square acre” ratio.  Psychological studies, using rats, show that living in close quarters can result in heightened territorial behaviors.

Numbers Don’t Lie

Still, a population of approximately 77,000 living within approximately 5,600 square acres, Camden residents should be quite comfortable with room to breath.  Mathematically, each person has an approximate 58-foot square living space.  You can fit roughly 42 full size cars in that same space.

And still, the 2012 FBI crime rate statistics suggests a very different paradigm.

Presenting the crime issue to our State Governor Chris Christie, in his State of the State Address, Christie made a most profound statement.  He said, “For too long Camden has been one of the most dangerous cities in New Jersey, and in America.”  Wow! Did he work on that statement all night?

As I stated, maybe it’s not the rats that evacuated Camden which are the problem.  After hearing no “voice of reason” from Governor Christie, figuring he had gas pains from stuffing himself on Taxpayer dollars, I decided to research why Camden City is crime central.

What I found, will shock your conscience!

The Secret Agency

Unexpectedly, my research into the crime problem unearthed a secret organization from within New Jersey’s Criminal Justice System, specifically, within the Camden County Office of the Prosecutor.

I was reminded of the recent film Man from U.N.C.L.E., a remake of the American television series from the mid 60’s.  The show was broadcast on NBC from 1964 to 1968, and it illustrated the adventures of two agents who worked for a fictitious secret international espionage and law-enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E.

Originally, the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. was left ambiguous, leaving us viewers to associate the organization to either “Uncle Sam” or the “United Nations,” but producers later clarified that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

The Prizes Suck in Cracker Jacks

This special Camden agency was not unlike U.N.C.L.E., but it was formed from a Cracker-Jack team of women who had a unique understanding of tyrannical morality.  The higher-ups agreed Camden County desperately needed a team that would disregard the rights of its citizens and ignore the United States Constitution.  Their plan; to stop crime with crime.  A concept derived from firefighters, who use explosives to extinguish fires (fight fire with fire).

With this plan, the special team could operate as criminals whose actions fall under the protections of prosecutorial immunity (meaning no one could touch them).  Now unlike the men from U.N.C.L.E., who understood and abided by International Law, these female officers violate the “Rule of Law” by assigning guilt and punishment before the presumption of innocence.

Remove L and E for T, The Name is Clear

Likened to The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the former Warren W. Faulk dubbed his secret division as the Camden Unit of National Tyrants.  To maintain the status quo, Warren created a hierarchy and assigned a National Tyrants Director who goes by the name Tracy A. Cogan.  Tracy Cogan was also assigned a special code name within the Camden Unit of National Tyrants; “The Hammer”.  In short, Tracy Cogan has the special task of overseeing and training upcoming female officers for the Camden Unit of National Tyrants.

VIDEO ENDS HERE.  Continue reading…

As my diligence continued, I later found that Tracy A. Cogan was nearly caught with her hand in the proverbial till… so to speak.  Tracy Cogan (aka: The Hammer), now a highly revered Camden Unit of National Tyrants officer, has perfected the art of lying, helping witnesses commit perjury, fabricating false documents, and destroying and concealing material evidence in criminal prosecutions.  This is a “no-no” under our Rules of Professional Conduct.

Code Name Hammer

Tracy Cogan, the Camden Unit of National Tyrants Director, probably received her code-name “The Hammer” not because it looks like someone used a hammer to style her hair, but because anyone who has the displeasure of engaging Tracy A. Cogan walks away as if they were hit from behind with a 30lb. sledge hammer.

The reason Tracy A. Cogan has code name “The Hammer”, is because she hammers at common sense until it fits in her uterus of understanding.  This skill is a practiced requirement in Chapter Two of the Camden Unit of National Tyrants handbook.

The Slippery Song

As my research delved deeper, a slippery source inside the Camden Unit of National Tyrants leaked some information, and me, likened a panty-liner absorbed every bit of it.  Here, the team recently hired a musician to produce a song that shall be discharged during the Camden Unit of National Tyrants inaugurations.  From my understanding, this is the unedited version.

On-Page SEO Strategy: Getting Found Online

On-page SEO is about keywords or key-terms, keyword ranking, and ensuring that your most important terms are found within the content elements of your website. Content elements relate to page structure and include titles, headlines, sub-headlines, body content (text), images, tags and links.

Keyword density relates to the amount of times your most important words are used within the elements, however, overuse of these terms can be as damaging to keyword ranking as failing to use them enough. A good guideline is to keep less than 7 keywords per page, making sure they are the most prominent. Remember, you can populate the page with 1-2 terms on the same page, giving you better keyword ranking in search engine results pages (SERP).

The following tips are examples of on-page SEO done right:

  • Pick a primary terms or two for each page. Search engines use these words to rank and clearly determine what your content is about. Using too many keyword ranking terms in your content will confuse search engines and reduce your importance and the ‘authority’ of your page.
  • Place your key-terms within your heading and sub-heading, as these elements carry more weight with SERP.
  • Use your terms within the body-content (main text) of your page. They must be incorporated in a natural fashion that relates to the information you’re providing in some relevant manner for the best keyword ranking. Stuffing terms out of context for the sake of having them is a no-no, so make them count.
  • Include key-terms in the file names of images (i.e., mykeyword.jpeg), or within the Alt tag option to help ranking.
  • Use your terms within the site URL for better ranking.
  • Develop content for your readers, not search engines. Writing from the perspective of keyword ranking will never achieve the natural flow necessary to engage your site visitors, and defeats the purpose of getting them there in the first place.
  • Create an XML Sitemap for search engines to quickly understand and index the content. Here’s one (of many) free sitemap builders to help you.

Off-Page SEO And Inbound Links: The Company You Keep

Off-page SEO is about building quality inbound links; a network of links from other high-ranking sites that lead back to your website. Just as it is in other areas of business, it’s often ‘who you know’ that matters. Search engines consider the quality, or ‘authority’ of the sites linking back to you, and the more authoritative inbound links you create, the higher you’ll rank.

You might have come across companies that offer link building campaigns, and what they offer seems quite appealing because it will save you lots of time. If you’re interested in having this service performed, please ensure you have an ironclad money-back guarantee. Usually, this service requires months to perform, and you should see a difference in the amount of inbound links to your website.

Check for testimonials, and check the testimonials by contacting them via email or phone. The process for verification is the same as if you were hiring an employee. Always keep in mind that building quality inbound links takes time and effort, but the tips below should get you off and running.

  • Content is king. Create engaging, educational and informative content. When people like your content, chances are they’ll want to share it by linking to it.
  • Submit your website to online directories. Many directories are free and easy to set up.
  • Write guest posts for other popular blogs. Popular blogs are often looking to add quality content, and by building these relationships, you’re also building quality inbound links.
  • Research link-building opportunities with other sites of authority. There are online tools available to help you check the domain and page ranking of the sites you’re trying to build links with.

Website Design: Making A Good First Impression

As with any first meeting, your website design says a lot about who you are and the quality of your business. First time visitors quickly (although, often subconsciously) run through a list of qualifiers before deciding if it’s worth their time to get to know you. Some of the questions they may ask themselves include, but are not limited to:

  • Is this a credible business site?
  • Can I trust the information provided?
  • How long has this company been in business?
  • Can I easily navigate to the information I need?
  • Is this site welcoming and engaging …professional?

Studies show that while aesthetics alone may not be the lone factor when it comes to first impressions, bells and whistles that serve little purpose are distracting to consumers. A clean website design that incorporates multimedia where appropriate will often engage a site visitor better than an overly priced, multi-colored site comprised of flashy components.

  • Here’s some additional tips:
  • Color – Pick 2-4 that compliment
  • Animation and music – avoid the unnecessary.
  • Over-crowding – make white space your friend to help reduce clutter.
  • Organization – use easy navigation bars vs. random links. Make it easy for visitors to find great content with as few clicks as possible.
  • Fonts and Layout – choose easy to read font sizes and styles. While headlines and other elements should be larger in size, don’t shout. Layout consistency is key and should remain uniform on each page (with the exception of landing pages).

Website Design Navigation; Are You Lost?

Bruce Aristeo Website Design Navigation

Bruce Aristeo Website Design Navigation

One of the most important elements to any website design is ease of navigation; the ability of visitors to find the information they need and thus, keep them on your site as they explore all you have to offer.  Any roadblock, such as requiring multiple clicks to reach their desired information, or plug-in requirements to view your content can send a potential customer away from your website in a hurry.

Still, over and over again we see websites that try to use chic design features as a means to elevate their navigation tools …at their own peril, of course.

Key tips to consider:

  • Simple, clear, structured navigation near the top of your website, as well as within the footer.
  • Include a search box for ease of searching your pages by keywords.
  • When possible, keep your sub-menus no more than 3 levels deep.
  • Limit the number of navigational options on a page
  • Including links to other pages within your body text content encourages further exploration while also boosting your SEO.

Avoid fancy or complicated Java Script and Flash in your navigation, as it often requires a visitor to have updated software and limits the ability of mobile users (at present) to navigate your website. 

Social Media Expert?

Is there such a thing as a SM Expert?

I know that this is late to post, but I just recently got around to looking at some of my social media discussions. I’ve heard competitors talk about being a Guru, and Expert, and Wizard, and every one of the blog postings I’ve read miss the mark entirely because they’re all the same! I think this discussion states it all in that there is “no such thing as a social media expert.”

Social media is a fluid form

There can be an expert in a particular field of study that remains relatively stable, but in the case of this discussion, the arena of social media is too vast and encompasses countless variables. SM is a fluid form of communication which will never stop, even within specific industries. Take printing companies for example, the industry changes so rapidly that they have a hard enough time maintaining a grip on technology and staying ahead of home printing options such as the ability to print business cards and stationery.

Check out this discussion, see what you think, and think about it the next time you hear someone titled or being titling as a SM expert. You might want to strike up a discussion with them to find out what he/she thinks of the concept.
