Philly Thug Draws Pistol At Chipotle

A Philadelphia “woman” allegedly pulled out a handgun and threatened Chipotle workers in the Rhawnhurst section of the city, demanding “somebody better give me my food.” Funny, I expect this at Waffle House, not Chipotle.

Philadelphia police are searching for a woman who pulled a gun on a Chipotle worker after being told to order online because the restaurant was short-staffed.

A surveillance video released by police Wednesday shows the angry customer grabbing a black firearm from her purse as she appeared to confront the people behind the counter. At one point, the gun-wielding woman told the workers that “somebody better give me my food,” according to police.

The store is only five miles from my residence. In the last few years, the trash has been slowly creeping north, destroying all the neighborhoods in their wake.

The shocking incident happened just before 5 p.m. at a mall in the city’s Rhawnhurst neighborhood. It all started when the cashier was instructed by her manager to tell customers waiting in line that the store was closing due to staffing issues and advise them to order online, authorities said.

The patron, who was accompanied by a man, immediately displayed her weapon and asked to speak with a manager, saying that if someone didn’t make her food she would be back and there would be a problem, according to police.

I find it hilarious that the author deems this incident “shocking.” We’re approaching 400 homicides, and this guy thinks pulling out a gun in Philadelphia is shocking? Dude needs to get out more often.

  1. How do the 140 S for suspicious death investigations in Philadelphia fit in?
    The news story was a garbled as ususal, it mentioned out of jurisdiction deaths and suicides?


  2. Y’know… what is curious is that she pulled a gun on people to get some crappy food. Didn’t she hear about the e coli outbreak they had there a few years ago? You know where that comes from. 😦


  3. RD – How long do you have? The short version is this: they can hide homicides by declaring them suspicious. About a decade ago, my former partner responded to a “suspicious death” where the man was found with his hands tied behind his back, and two bullet holes in his skull. The Homicide Unit declared it “suspicious,” when it was obviously a murder.

    I assume most big blue cities hide homicides, but everyone in the department knows this goes on so the city doesn’t look as violent. On NYE 2020, a high-ranking boss overheard a legitimate homicide call and demanded the investigators not pronounce him dead until after midnight. The city claimed there were 499 murders, when we know there were at least 506, not to mention the hundred or so S-numbers.

    TXNick – Yeah. I’m surprised Chipotle is still in business. I am also surprised she didn’t fire off a round.
