Kensington Philadelphia Drug & Crime Problems

Violent crime and drug abuse in Philadelphia as a whole is a major problem. The city’s violent crime rate is higher than the national average and other similarly sized metropolitan areas.1 Also alarming is Philadelphia’s drug overdose rate. The number of drug overdose deaths in the city increased by 50% from 2013 to 2015, with more than twice as many deaths from drug overdoses as deaths from homicides in 2015.2 A big part of Philadelphia’s problems stem from the crime rate and drug abuse in Kensington.

Because of the high number of drugs in Kensington, the neighborhood has a drug crime rate of 3.57, the third-highest rate by neighborhood in Philadelphia.3 Like a lot of the country, a big part of this issue is a result of the opioid epidemic. Opioid abuse has skyrocketed over the last two decades in the United States and Philadelphia is no exception. Along with having a high rate of drug overdose deaths, 80% percent of Philadelphia’s overdose deaths involved opioids2 and Kensington is a big contributor to this number. This Philly neighborhood is purportedly the largest open-air narcotics market for heroin on the East Coast with many neighboring residents flocking to the area for heroin and other opioids.4 With such a high number of drugs in Kensington, many state and local officials have zoned in on this area to try and tackle Philadelphia’s problem.

    This is fucking horrific. Most of America looks like an undeveloped nation at this point.

    Remember some one person’s excess billions are being invested in research and development of leisure outer space travel.

  34. Valentina Lastra on September 23, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    crazy how they bend over

  35. Verna Elliott on September 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    This is what happens when 2 generations had no restrictions, no punishments ,and were given everything they wanted ,instead of earning it. Not taught about God ,morals,values,or respect and no spanking . Allowed to cus and their parents thought it was funny. Teens put on birth control at 12 ,instead of teaching to wait till your married. It’s like the USA is half full of demons now. But Christians know what’s up.

  36. Marstarsea2 on September 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    States run by democrats .. what do you expect ?

  37. 刘华坤 on September 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    This is absolutely the hell in the world. Every time when I see the drug addicts, I have a question why the government doesn’t help them to clean up. Sleepy Joe should pay more attention to this dark city.

    In West Philadelphia born and raised
    On the playground is where I spent most of my days
    Chillin’ out, maxin’, relaxin’ all cool
    And all shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school
    When a couple of guys who were up to no good
    Started makin’ trouble in my neighborhood…..
