A lawyer employed by the city of Philadelphia will not be charged after watching and recording a friend spray paint “F**k Trump” on a city storefront. Color me surprised.
The assistant city solicitor captured on camera with a second man, who is seen vandalizing a Chestnut Hill grocery store, will not be charged and will keep his job.
Duncan Lloyd, 32, was identified in surveillance footage that captured Lloyd and a second man walking along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill on Nov. 25. In the footage, Lloyd is seen wearing a blue blazer and holding a glass of wine while appearing to film or take photos of a second man, who spray-paints “F- Trump” on the wall of a newly opened Fresh Market.
Craig Straw, first deputy city solicitor of the Philadelphia Law Department, said he learned Saturday that Lloyd would not be charged. He said Lloyd, who has been on a two-week leave without pay since the incident, will keep his job and complete 40 hours of community service.
So a city attorney sits back and watches an accomplice commit a crime, does nothing to stop or report the incident, and is rewarded with continued employment and no criminal charges? Welcome to Philadelphia.
Oh, and for the record, the writer at Philly.com tries to throw the police department under the bus, by blaming us for the lack of charges. If this chick thinks detectives would have free reign to submit an arrest warrant on a city solicitor (and a close personal friend of Mayor Kenney), she probably also believes the moon landing was faked. This case was closed before it ever began. Believe it.
