Philadelphia Is A Garbage City

A teenager was shot in the head and a older man was killed after a thug decided to go on a shooting spree outside a Northeast Philadelphia public high school.

The incident occurred a few blocks away from my son’s high school. Guess I’m bringing my gun to his lacrosse games from here on out.

A man was killed and a 16-year-old boy is fighting for life after they were shot near Lincoln High School in Philadelphia’s Mayfair section. The shooting happened on the 7400 block of Rowland Avenue around 2:45 p.m. Monday.

I live in Northeast Philly, and we rarely have shootings, let alone homicides here.

Police say the teen was shot once in the back of the head. He is currently in critical condition at Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital. A 65-year-old man was shot once in the head. He was later pronounced dead at Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital.

The inner city thugs have been moving north slowly but surely the last few decades. Eventually they’ll overrun the few nice neighborhoods left, because our politicians don’t want white, blue collar workers; they want Democrats.

P.S. I just realized I started my twenty-eighth year in this department on Sunday.

Philadelphia Officially Embraces Chaos

The city of Philadelphia – the worst city in America, in my opinion – has decided to ban police from making traffic stops for low-level traffic offenses. The drunken idiot mayor claims stopping traffic offenders is, get this, racist.

Philadelphia became the first major city to ban police traffic stops of low-level motor vehicle offenses, a tactic which critics claim disproportionately affects black people.

The Philadelphia City Council passed two Driving Equity bills on Thursday that Mayor James Kenney is is expected to sign into law this week.

Jim Kenney is a drunken stumblebum, who is despised by the left and the right. He is arguably the worst mayor this city has ever seen, and when he claimed he was going to run for Pennsylvania governor, everyone laughed at him. He rescinded that idea almost immediately.

The law creates an open searchable database recording traffic stops and prohibits police officers from stopping drivers for minor offenses by reclassifying several offenses as secondary violations.

In Philadelphia, people of color are 3.4 times as likely to be pulled over as white people, according to WPVI, which analyzed city police and US Census data.

Wow, maybe that’s because blacks are the largest section of the population at 43.8%? Or maybe because blacks in Philadelphia usually live in the most violent neighborhoods? Do you think that has a correlation to traffic infractions, because I cannot count how many people in the ‘hood blow through red lights, speed down narrow streets, and strike pedestrians before fleeing the scene.

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.

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.

Raze The Steaks

South Philadelphia is the undisputed home of cheesesteaks. Two of the more popular steak shops – Pat’s and Geno’s – are across the street from each other. Both restaurants have their fair share of customers, even during late-night hours.

Sadly, Pat’s Steaks just had a homicide outside its doors.

Crime tape surrounded the popular Pat’s Steaks in South Philadelphia after an all-out brawl turned deadly overnight. Police say the fight involved roughly seven people and one of them used a trash can lid to hit the victim. The violence unfolded around 2 a.m. Thursday at South 9th Street and East Passyunk Avenue. Police say two groups of people got into an argument and then got physical.

Investigators say one group used a trash can lid to beat a 28-year-old man over the head. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Police later identified the victim as Isidro Cortez from Queens, New York.

“When he collapsed, several individuals with the perpetrator began punching and kicking this individual when he was on the ground,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

It always amazes me how regular human beings can turn into animals over an argument. I guarantee the deceased was attacked simply because he was from New York City. For some bizarre reason, Philadelphians hate people from NYC, and it’s not the first time they’ve violently gone after New Yorkers.

This city is becoming more violent every day, and no one – not the mayor, the district attorney, or the police commissioner – gives a damn.

We’re Number One… With A Bullet

As of the end of last week, the city of Philadelphia has earned themselves an infamous honor. The city has the highest per capita homicide rate in America. Congratulations, Philadelphia!

As of Thursday, the number of homicide victims in Philadelphia this year is up to at least 314 people. That’s up 35% from this time last year.

Philadelphia now has the highest murder rate in the country per capita of the country’s 10 largest cities.

More than one-third of the shootings have happened in just five zip codes in North Philadelphia, Hunting Park, West Philadelphia, Kingsessing, Kensington and Port Richmond.

The first two neighborhoods are located in my division, so this feels like an Olympic gold medal for me and my fellow officers. I mean, we do our best to stop people from killing themselves, but the mayor, police commissioner and the Soros-appointed DA just won’t let that happen. Can’t exactly limit homicides if no one is going to prosecute the shooters, amirite?

A Rant In D Minor

This post has been a long time coming, and after careful consideration, I am going to post about this now. This is a more serious post than my usual clown show posts, but I think this is important.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. In my fifty-two years, I have seen both good and bad. Every city has their troubles, obviously, but in the past two decades, Philadelphia has been in a downward spiral. The city has been run exclusively by Democrats since 1952, and the city has suffered for it.

But this isn’t really about politics. It’s about the culture.

Philadelphia has always been a very violent city, especially during the mid to late-90’s. Recently, however, the violence has skyrocketed, mostly after the George Floyd riots. The citizens are murdering people for taking too long to move at a green light, for bumping part them on a sidewalk, or simply looking at them the wrong way. Children are caught in the crossfire, Jewish citizens are being assaulted because of their religion, and Asians are being harassed for a virus which did not originate here.

The politicians sit on their hands and do nothing to stop the slaughter. The media refuses to accurately cover the violence. The department bigwigs fiddle with the true homicide count.

The department is no better. The city stopped looking for the best candidates, and decided instead in favor of diversity. Many of the new officers don’t want to do the job; they’re just here for the paycheck. The veterans care even less. When your department treats you like you’re expendable, refuses to give you the equipment necessary to do the job, and worries more about masks than solving crimes, you know it’s time to get out.

Having said that, this is my home, and it pains me to watch it die in real time. I spent close to thirty years fighting for and protecting the people of this town, and nobody cares. I imagine the Founders are appalled at what the Birthplace of Freedom has become. The city which gave us the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Liberty Bell is quickly becoming Baltimore, and no one cares.

Philadelphia deserves better.

Awful Judge Is Awfully Lucky

Meet Philadelphia Family Court Judge Lyris Younge. Younge is a corrupt, tyrannical jurist who spent much of her career belittling and demeaning those who appeared before her.

A Philadelphia Family Court judge was suspended for six months without pay after a state disciplinary tribunal issued an opinion concluding that her “repeated, clearly improper conduct,” which included wrongfully jailing multiple people and failing to be impartial, was “blatant and inexcusable.”

In a succinct six-page ruling, an eight-judge panel on the Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline said that Judge Lyris Younge’s abuses of power, repeated demeaning of people appearing before her, and overall interference with litigants’ rights was unprecedented “because of the extent of Judge Younge’s misconduct in these areas.”

Witnesses brought before the tribunal “testified to the havoc Judge Younge had wreaked in their lives with her imperious actions,” the ruling said, noting that on two occasions Younge baselessly ordered people jailed “when such treatment was improper under the law.”

So Younge “allegedly” verbally attacked and jailed these people without cause, and her punishment is a six-month suspension without pay? This woman should be fired and charged, but alas, the United States has a two-tier justice system. One for the elites, and another for the rest of us.

In my opinion, Lyris Younge truly typifies the rapid decline of Philadelphia’s justice system.

Philadelphia Is A Corrupt Shithole

So Tuesday was Primary Day, and because I live in a Democrat shithole, my choices were limited. I told myself I would not vote Tuesday – or any day, for that matter – but there were two ballot issues which would severely curtail the PA governor’s emergency powers. The ballot measure came about after Governor Tom Wolf shut down the state for well over a year by fiat, without the input of the legislature.

I’ll get back to that later.

In the meantime, feel free to click on the photo above. It was a pamphlet the lawless thugs were attaching to cars on Tuesday. The pamphlet claims felons can now vote in Philadelphia, and gives instructions on how to do so. The pamphlets were distributed across the street from the police station. I mean, I’m sure our despicable, drunken corrupt Democrat has every intention of letting felons vote, but I was amazed at the balls of these people. Just putting it right out there for everyone to see.

Anyway, the ballot measure passed, and Governor Wolf’s emergency powers have been handcuffed. Maybe now the state can finally get back to normal.

Oh, Philly’s Soros-appointed District Attorney, Larry Krasner, won the Democrat primary in a landslide, ensuring 500-600 homicides for the last few years of my career. The irony is Krasner received most of his votes from the neighborhoods where the homicides are most frequent.

F them. This is what the voted for, so don’t come crying to us when it’s someone in your family gunned down. I couldn’t care less if there are 1,000 homicides this year.

Philadelphia Is The Worst City In America

After living in Philadelphia for fifty-two years, I have come to the realization than Philadelphia is the worst city in the country. And it’s not even close. A group of North Philly residents decided to renovate a lot which was filled with trash, feces, and other nasty items. The people turned the lot into something beautiful, only to have the city pee on their parade.

A North Philadelphia community is expressing frustration after being told to vacate a piece of city land that residents helped to revitalize.

What residents once described as a dumping site at 15th and Parrish streets in Francisville has been transformed into a community green space after a major clean-up effort during the pandemic.

With their own money, residents built a sandpit for kids, picnic tables and a fenced-in area for dogs. Over 1,000 people have signed a petition to keep the lot a green space.

The city says by next week, everything must be moved out. The land is currently set aside for future affordable housing.

Mayor Jim Kenney is arguably the worst mayor the city has ever seen, and he was all too happy to send his brownshirts to shut down the revitalization. I mean, why would he want his city to look nice for a change? I hate this city, and I cannot wait until I can flee its borders.
