Philadelphia police ordered to stand down as rioters loot and burn

On October 26, 2020, two Philadelphia police officers responded to a domestic dispute call. When they arrived, they found a black man, Walter Wallace Jr., 27, armed with a knife. The officers asked Wallace to put down his knife, but Wallace ignored the order and advanced towards the officers with the knife. The officers fired several rounds at Wallace in the shoulder and chest. He later died in the hospital.

Wallace, 27, had nine children, and was an aspiring rapper who rapped about killing police. At the time of his death, he was awaiting trial for making terroristic threats. (Wikipedia)

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris published a statement, saying, “Our hearts are broken for the family of Walter Wallace Jr….We cannot accept that in this country a mental health crisis ends in death.”

Using this justified police shooting as the pretext, demonstrations occurred throughout Philadelphia on the nights of October 26 and 27, which escalated into violence and looting.

As many as 1,000 people looted businesses in Port Richmond, including this looter carting off a large appliance because, as we all know, racial justice is all about stealing large appliances. [Sarc]

Melvin Singleton, the deputy police commissioner of Democrat-run Philadelphia, ordered the police to stand down and to NOT arrest looters.

30 police officers were injured by the rioters with bricks and rocks, including a 56-year-old female police officer whose leg was broken after being hit by a pickup truck.

The injured police officers should sue Deputy Police Commissioner Melvin Singleton, and Mayor Jim Kenney, a Demonrat.

Philadelphia progressives want to remove Columbus statue; city staff observing Columbus Day holiday

The City of Philadelphia’s Art Commission voted to remove the statue of Columbus at Marconi Plaza.

Last month a city judge granted an emergency motion filed on behalf of Friends of Marconi Plaza that prohibits the City of Philadelphia from removing the statue of Columbus while the group continues to pursue legal action.

The problem with the Christopher Columbus statue? From Mayor Jim Kenney (in June):

“Like many communities across the country, Philadelphia is in the midst of a much-needed reckoning about the legacy of systemic racism and oppression in this country and around the world. Part of that reckoning requires reexamining what historical figures deserve to be commemorated in our public spaces. In recent weeks, clashes between individuals who support the statue of Christopher Columbus in Marconi Plaza and those who are distressed by its existence have deteriorated—creating a concerning public safety situation that cannot be allowed to continue. We must find a way forward that allows Philadelphians to celebrate their heritage and culture while respecting the histories and circumstances of others that come from different backgrounds.”

I guess Columbus isn’t good enough to be commemorated in public space. But he’s sure good enough for a paid day off:

HYPOCRITES.

As violence increases in demorat-run Philadelphia, leaders want residents to turn in their guns

I’m sure the criminals will get right on that request…

Shocker, not: We’ve got another demorat-run city that is experiencing an increase in crime. CBS Philly reports that 259 people have been murdered so far this year, a 31% increase from this time last year.

The city council held an emergency meeting last week to come up with solutions. Here’s one of them:

Do these fools really believe that criminals are going to comply with this request?

The city’s Soros-backed district attorney, Larry Krasner, has been lenient with criminals and is a proponent of bail reform. At least he was until last week but now he’s apparently had a change of heart. From the CBS Philly story:

“Krasner was the first to address the City Council’s Special Committee on Gun Violence and even got emotional during the hearing when talking about 7-year-old Zamar Jones, who was killed during gun crossfire in West Philadelphia.

Krasner says his office is pushing for higher bail on those linked to gun crimes. “What my office is seeing is that bails are too low and often too low on cases that involve shootings, on cases involving felons in possession of firearms,” he said.”

Seven-year-old Zamar Jones was shot in the head while playing on his front porch. He later died.

Too little, too late for Zamar Jones, Mr. Krasner.

When are democrat voters going to realize the obvious?

Celebrating sanctuary status now, Mayor Kenney? ICE arrests child sexual predator in Philadelphia after he was freed twice by local authorities

Remember in 2018 when Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny (demorat) was videotaped dancing to celebrate their “sanctuary city win?”

I wonder if the good mayor is celebrating the sexual abuse of children after an illegal alien was released by his city police due to HIS sanctuary-approved policy?

From an ICE press release dated November 27:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present Guatemalan national for sexual abuse against children after he was released from police custody. This was the second time Philadelphia Police Department released this sexual predator onto the streets, despite an ICE detainer lodged against him in both cases.

Hector Moran-Espinoza was arrested April 2, by the Philadelphia Police Department for involuntary deviate sexual intercourse by forcible compulsion, unlawful contact with a minor-sexual offenses, statuary sexual assault, endangering the welfare of children-parent or guardian commits offense, corruption of minors, indecent assault-without the consent of other person, reckless endangerment of another person, rape by forceable compulsion, sexual abuse of children-photographing, videotaping, depicting on a computer or filming sexual acts, and aggravated indecent assault without consent.

May 9, Moran was again arrested by the Philadelphia Police Department for unlawful contact with a minor-sexual offenses, corruption of minors, indecent assault of a person under 13 years of age, reckless endangerment of another person, and endangering the welfare of a child-parent or guardian commits offense.

In both cases, ICE’s Philadelphia Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged an immigration detainer on Moran the same day of the arrest, and each time Philadelphia Police Department did not honor this detainer and released this predator onto the streets.

“We are seeing politicians put their political agendas above the safety of the citizens they serve,” said ICE Philadelphia Field Office Director Simona Flores-Lund. “The victims in this case are young children, whose lives are now forever changed. This monster was released not once, but twice, without notifying ICE. We are committed to strengthening our relationship with local law enforcement, as we want nothing more than to keep our communities safe.”

By releasing a criminal with multiple offenses, the Philadelphia Police Department is putting their city at risk by letting this individual roam free to potentially harm the most vulnerable, our children.
