Philadelphia Riots – 11 Wounded as Looters Shoot Looters

 In Uncategorized

There is a galaxy-sized question that no one wants to ask with regard to “protests” over someone fatally shot by police: How does looting and rioting bring any sort of “justice?” It doesn’t. At least 11 people were shot yesterday when looters started shooting other looters. One even had their car full of stolen items stolen.  In this case, the shooting of Walter Wallace Jr by police, as we previously reported, prompted the Philadelphia riots.  Looting occurred all over downtown Philadelphia and even into other areas of the city. It was the second night of violence.

Eleven people, including one 15 year old, were wounded by gunfire from looters and rioters.

Some people dressed in black bloc followed and shoved police. What will be the result of this kind of behavior? Either police will all quit, or there won’t be enough police to handle the surge of criminals. These are NOT protesters, they are criminals.

And the businesses damaged and looted? The rioters and looters say “They got insurance.” It’s less than three months before Christmas, so repairs and restocking will take time. Some previous looters in Chicago even justified it by calling “reparations.”

The Philadelphia Office of Emergency Mangement issued this statement last night:

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.

Wallace’s father pleaded with the Black community to stop the riots and looting because it didn’t help his family.

“I don’t condone no violence tearing up the city, looting of the stores. I would feel like everybody having respect for my family and my son to stop this violence and chaos that’s going on in this city with people that have businesses…That all I’m sending out is an SOS, to help, not to hurt and cause no chaos, violence, looting, firing. I wasn’t brought up like this and I worked 33 years with the city, with the street department picking up trash to try to keep this city clean.” Walter Wallace Sr (Fox)

Here are some of the videos posted about the Philadelphia riots from last night:

 

One indepedent journalist, Elijah Schaffer, was beaten for filming the looting.

The “demonstrations” aka riots were supposedly due to Walter Wallace Jr being shot by police on Monday. But who was he?

Walter Wallace Jr

The Post Millennial reported:

Court records show Wallace was currently awaiting trial for allegedly threatening to shoot a woman and her house up.

In 2017, he pled guilty to robbery, assault, and possessing an instrument of crime after kicking down the door of another woman and putting a gun to her head.

He was sentenced to 11-23 months behind bars.

And in 2013, he pled guilty to assault and resisting arrest after punching a police officer in the face.

Walter Wallace Jr was allegedly bipolar and should have been on medication. According to the Post Millennial, he was ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment as far back as 2013, and was supposedly taking lithium. The family’s attorney thinks the police officer should have known that before they shot him.

He wasn’t wearing a placard that said, “I’m bipolar and taking psych drugs, don’t shoot me.”You can train anyone a thousand times over, but when someone is brandishing a knife and runs toward an officer, something bad is going to happen, regardless of that training. whether its bipolar, schizophrenia, or any other mental illness, you can’t tell by looking at someone.
