It’s a good thing that Philadelphia police were ordered not to make arrests because otherwise, eleven people would be in custody for attempted murder.
No doubt the liberals in charge of the city will use the unlawful shootings to0 pass even more restrictions on law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to contain criminal assailants.
These were looters shooting other looters. Maybe one looter had a George Foreman grill that another looter coveted. But, this proves the riots really has nothing to do with Walter Wallace Jr. or BLM.
This is a demonstration of never let a good crisis go to waste while gaining a cool set of Air Jordans or a big-screen television set.
The city of Philadelphia issued a warning to certain residents:
“The Philadelphia Police Department is requesting that all residents in the 12, 16, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26th Districts remain indoors except when necessary. These areas are experiencing widespread demonstrations that have turned violent with looting.”
The White House reacted to the violence:
The riots in Philadelphia are the most recent consequence of the Liberal Democrats’ war against the police. Law enforcement is an incredibly dangerous occupation, and thousands of officers have given their lives in the line of duty. All lethal force incidents must be fully investigated. The facts must be followed wherever they lead to ensure fair and just results. In America, we resolve conflicts through the courts and the justice system. We can never allow mob rule. The Trump Administration stands proudly with law enforcement, and stands ready, upon request, to deploy any and all Federal resources to end these riots.
Law abiding citizens are becoming prisoners in their own homes. This is injustice. If there was a gang ripping shirts and bras off women would Philadelphia instruct women to quit wearing shirts and bras so that sexual predators would not be tempted to rip them off? What a sad commentary for any city.
But besides the looters, at least thirty police officers were injured on Monday night alone. Violence must be used to curtail violence, otherwise it encourages the violence to continue. See Portland.
A reporter from the Blaze was attacked and it left his face bloodied. And let me remind you that all of this is going on in cities run by Democrats.
