Cops describe it as a “coordinated attack.” The rest of us refer to it as anarchy. The deep blue metropolis of Philadelphia witnessed a large number of urban youngsters looting a number of stores in the city’s downtown on Tuesday evening and Wednesday.
Yes, in Virginia, looting and riots are occurring in cities other than Chicago.
As the night progressed, the young people observed how thinly police were scattered and how the huge, vast majority of looters could take and trash property with impunity.
Cops apprehended 20, but hundreds more escaped, including a man dressed in a Halloween mask who embodies the mayhem in the so-called City of Brotherly Love.
We’ll put the footage here and then tell you everything about it. Take note of the woman videotaping the rampage’s hyena-like cackling chuckles. The inadequate police response had her positively thrilled to the brink of climax.
Do you hear the woman laughing and screaming, “Free iPhones!”
PHILADELPHIA – Several retail stores were looted when police say a large group of people, including many juveniles, terrorized several sections of Philadelphia during an 8-hour crime spree that spanned from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning.
Interim Commissioner John Stanford told reporters the looting began around 8 p.m. when police responded to several reports of looting at businesses.
A massive police presence swarmed a stretch of Walnut Street between 15th and 18th streets. Videos posted to X, formerly called Twitter, shows retail stores like Lululemon, the Apple Store and Footlocker ravaged by what police called a “coordinated attack.”
Large crowds — mostly consisting of juveniles — looted multiple stores and damaged property across Philadelphia Tuesday night, police said.
It was around 8 p.m. when officials said, police started receiving calls that large crowds were making their way into Center City.
Among the stores looted were the Footlocker and the Apple store near 15th and Chestnut streets and a Lululemon store in the area.
Acting Police Commissioner John Stanford said Tuesday night’s looting had nothing to do with the peaceful protest that took place earlier after charges were dismissed against the officer who shot and killed Eddie Irizarry.
Instead, he argued that those involved in looting used the protest as an excuse to engage in criminal behavior.
Even CNN – the “mostly peaceful” network – covered it on the national level… laughably they called incidents as if it was a traffic accident.
CNN — More than a dozen people were arrested after stores were looted when a large crowd gathered in Philadelphia’s Center City district Tuesday night, police said.
The looting began shortly after the conclusion of peaceful protests against a judge’s decision to dismiss all charges against a former Philadelphia police officer, Mark Dial, in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Eddie Irizarry on August 14, authorities said. The city’s police commissioner said he believed the looters were “opportunists” who were not directly connected to the protests.
Eddie Irizarry, who is he?
That was my question as well. Would it surprise you to learn that he was a young man who fled from police and then refused to display his hands as cops surrounded his car? Was there a gun in the seat next to him, by the way?
Screen capture captured after Eddie completed the room temperature challenge. He would still be alive to pursue his academic career if he had just followed the rules of the road and demands like “show me your hands.”
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — More than a dozen people were arrested after a massive group of juvenile looters ransacked businesses across Philadelphia on Tuesday night.
