Philadelphia Fever

The city of Philadelphia has had a banner week for violence, with twenty-two shootings since last Monday, and four homicides in the past day. Come to Philly, have a few laughs.

Overnight violence continues in Philadelphia as a reported 22 shootings have happened since a week ago Monday. In 24 hours, 4 people have been killed in the city. A 57-year-old woman was found shot in her doorway and died in her home. She suffered one gunshot wound under her arm. She was pronounced dead.

In a separate incident, a 37-year-old man was shot in the face and multiples times throughout the body. The incident occurred at approximately 2 a.m. on the 2200 block of North Chadwick Street.

A shooting in Strawberry Mansion left a 23-year-old man dead after he was shot multiples times in the leg, chin, and back. That shooting happened around 8 p.m. Monday evening.

Earlier that day, a drive-by shooting in Fern Rock left one man dead and five others injured. It happened around 2:15 p.m. at the intersection of North Broad Street and West Chew Avenue.

The good news? The mayor is focused like a laser… on forcing vaccinations on all city employees. The murders and shootings are not a priority for the mayor, nor the district attorney.

  1. Cathy – I’d wager Philadelphia is the worst big city in America. New York, L.A., and Chicago all have something going for them. Philadelphia has nothing going for itself, unless you think beverage taxes and the elimination of plastic bags will make your lives easier.

  2. Many of the big ones – Temple, Drexel, U of Penn, Lasalle, and my Alma mater, Saint Joseph’s are effectively in war zones. Temple, Drexel and Penn have their own police departments.

  3. I was offered a job in Iraq yesterday, and I asked about security. The company’s reply was, “Safer than America.”

    Looking at the large, democrat run cities (are there any other kind anymore?), I couldn’t argue with them.

    I may take it. At least I’ll be able to carry a full-auto AK-47 again. Legally.

  4. The new trend in Minneapolis MN is blazing away doing full auto mag dumps. As usual they miss more than they hit, and now they miss a with a lot more bulets. Several months ago, a fine upstanding Minneapolis felon allegedly got a shipment of about 500 auto-sears for Glocks from the same fine people that are flooding America with Fentanyl and almost Fentanyl chemicals.

    He was allegedly selling them for $500 a piece. The police and BATFE busted him about two months ago. They did not say how many he had sold. I didn’t think much of the story then.

    Now in the last few weeks, the police are reporting more full auto shootings, and more reports of shot up neighborhoods. Hopefully they can round up the shooters and the auto sears.
