The Philadelphia 100

Well, we did it! The city of Philadelphia earned 100 homicides in just over three months. The hundredth murder came in on March 11th, and we are on a pace to break last year’s record of 562.

Keep in mind, January, February, and March are usually brutal when it comes to weather, and these thugs still ran out in the wind and the snow to kill people. Once May hits, it gets really crazy, and we see multiple homicides a day. I have no doubt we’ll surpass 562 murders by the end of the year.

Philadelphia is dying, literally and figuratively, and I would urge everyone to steer far clear of this city, because it’s getting more violent by the hour.

Wow, People Really Hate The Police

A gunfight outside the Philadelphia Police Internal Affairs Unit occurred Friday evening, and a projectile pierced a window of the division.

A bullet went through a window at the Philadelphia Police Internal Affairs building 0n “the 7900 block of Dungan Road” on Friday night, 6 ABC reports.

The bullet was fired through the window around 11 p.m. when a man walking on Dungan got into a shootout with an individual in a vehicle.

To give you a feel for what Philadelphia is like, thugs are having shootouts within fifty yards of a police installation. Now, of course, the drones at IAD aren’t real cops, but they have weapons… they never use.

The Philadelphia Inquirer notes that the bullet “went through a cafeteria window and struck a wall.” No one was injured by the shot.

I’m certain dozens one car slowly raced to the scene to help out our good friends at Internal Affairs.

Anarchy In The PA

Remember way back to yesterday, when I wrote about the Driving Equality Policy. I mentioned how it will lead to anarchy and lawlessness. Never mind all that, because a vastly more important ordinance was just overruled by three Commonwealth judges.

The city has a long-standing ordinance stating if you lose your firearm, or if it is stolen, you must report it to the police. The reason for this is obvious. If someone’s firearm is out on the street, and someone uses it to shoot someone, the owner can at least plead his innocence. It’s also handy to know how many lost/stolen guns are on the street, considering we had 562 murders last year.

A Philadelphia ordinance that requires gun owners to tell police when a firearm has been lost or stolen was ruled illegal Monday by a state court, with one of the judges who voted to throw out the law lamenting that their ruling would put people’s lives at risk.

A three-judge Commonwealth Court panel ruled unanimously against the city law and issued a permanent injunction, saying the state Uniform Firearms Act preempts it. Philadelphia Police had sought a $2,000 fine against a man charged with violating the lost-and-stolen reporting mandate.

This is a devastating ruling. From here on out, we will have no idea how many lost or stolen guns are on the street. Similarly, we will not be able to track straw purchasers; those who buy a gun and pass it off to one of the random thugs. This will also make it more difficult to link a firearm with a shooter. In short, homicides are going to skyrocket.

One of the three Commonwealth Court jurists who ruled against the city ordinance on Monday, Senior Judge Bonnie Brigance Leadbetter, urged the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to reconsider that 1996 legal standard and to allow local restrictions “narrowly tailored to local necessities.”

“The overwhelming blight of gun violence occurring in the City of Philadelphia, of which I believe we can take judicial notice, and the policy issues argued by the city in the case before us, call for a recognition that local conditions may well justify more severe restrictions than are necessary statewide,” Leadbetter wrote.

She said it violates the fundamental right to life and liberty when children can’t walk on a street near their homes without the risk of being shot.

Normally, I am not a fan of judges, but Leadbetter makes good points. Overruling an ordinance like this in a Podunk little town wouldn’t be a problem. Overturning an ordinance like this in one of the most violent cities in America? It will result in piles and piles of dead bodies.

Philly Enacts A “Driving Equality Policy”

Over the past few years, my greatest thrill has been watching the coordinated self-destruction of Philadelphia by its drunken idiot mayor, its indicted City Council, and its police department.

Philadelphia politicians started the ball rolling by allowing BLM (Burn, Loot, Murder) to ravage the city with impunity, then released the thugs without any charges. Then Covid hit, and the “mayor” shut down the city, which eventually destroyed the city’s restaurant industry. After that, the “mayor” a man who cannot spell the word vaccine, forced every city worker to get vaccinated, lest you be suspended and/or fired.

Now, the City Council has passed an executive order declaring the initiation of a “Driving Equality” policy. Hmm, I wonder which set of people will benefit the most from this idiotic order?

Philadelphia City Council passed a bill, entitled Achieving Driving Equality, which limits Philadelphia Police officers’ ability to stop vehicles for certain violations of Title 75, the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code (MVC). In this legislation, City Council has designated eight (8) MVC provisions, listed below, as “secondary” violations. Any MVC provision not listed below is considered a “primary” violation. The below listed “secondary” violations, may not be used as the sole basis to conduct a vehicle stop/investigation. The new provisions take effect on February 24, 2022.

So the city is ordering us to look the other way when it comes to automobile/traffic violations. Expired registrations, expired inspections, putting the license plate in the rear window, no lights on at night; all this is perfectly legal now, and we cannot stop a vehicle for any of these infractions.

IT’S THUNDERDOME!

PPD SWAT Officer Shot

A Philadelphia police officer was shot yesterday, after the SWAT Unit was executing a high-risk warrant in the city’s Fairhill section. Fairhill is a war zone, and it’s the neighborhood where I was first assigned, and where Mrs. Earp worked in a public school.

Philadelphia police have been on the scene for more than four hours investigating after a SWAT officer was shot in his bulletproof vest while serving a high-risk drug-related search warrant on Friday.

The officer has since been discharged from Temple University Hospital after receiving treatment.

I’ve been in the unfortunate position of hitting houses, and they’re the scariest thing you’ll ever do in this job. You never know what’s on the other side of the door, and sometimes, it’s a gun.

“Thank God no one was injured today,” Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said. “Thank God the officer was able to walk out of the hospital and get home or get quickly to his family.”

Yeah, as if she cares.

Around 12:45 p.m., the Philadelphia Police Department’s Gun Violence Task Force was serving a warrant for drug-related offenses at a rowhome on Lehigh Avenue and 2nd Street. They were also assisted by SWAT because the warrant was deemed high-risk.

Outlaw said the property has three floors. As officers approached the third-floor door unit, the suspect fired two shots through the wall and struck the lead SWAT officer in the chest. The bullet struck a trauma plate made out of metal, according to police, on the officer’s bulletproof vest. The vest saved his life.

“A trauma plate made out of metal.” Wow, CBS Philly, you guys are on the cutting edge of police equipment. Did you find that on Wikipedia?

You Can Sleep A Little Later This Winter

Philadelphia is expected to see four to ten inches – phrasing – of snow today, which is perfect because I’ll be on the roads at 6:00am. Since everyone on the east coast is losing their mind, I thought this story was apropos.

As temperatures dip down to below freezing, drivers may be inclined to warm up their cars before they head out—something that can trigger a fine in this state. But is it necessary to warm up your car?

The answer is no, according to Tracy Nobles, the manager of public affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

“Vehicles today are much more sophisticated than they were, say 15 or 20 years ago, when it was recommended to warm it up,” she said. “Today it only needs about 30 seconds before you put it in gear.”

Car engines previously used breaker-point ignitions to fire the spark plugs and carburetors to mix gas and air, which is why it was helpful to warm up the car, Nobles said. But cars sold today are equipped with electronic ignition and fuel-injection systems that start quickly regardless of temperature, she said.

On a normal day, it takes me a half hour to get to work. It takes my car about fifteen minutes for the heat to kick in, which is why I get a coffee before work… just to keep my hands warm.

Fiddling While Philadelphia Dies

Jim Kenney, arguably the worst mayor in Philadelphia’s 340 year history, has run into a snag with his ridiculously unconstitutional vaccine mandates. Kenney, a fascist drunk who can barely spell the word Philadelphia, just realized he cannot order a mandate without entering arbitration with the city’s unions. You’d think a career politician would know that.

The City of Philadelphia announced the following updates as it continues to work to implement its workforce vaccine mandate previously announced in November 2021.

While the City issued a vaccination mandate for all employees—those represented by unions and those unrepresented (exempt)—it is important to understand that legally the City must negotiate the impact of this new requirement with its labor union partners: the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), AFSCME District Council 33 (DC 33), AFSCME District Council 47 (DC 47), and Local 22 (Firefighters) before it officially goes into effect for employees represented by those unions.

Hmm, I remember being forced to work through the Chinese Wuhan Virus in 2020, without masks, and without any other protection. We were “essential,” you see, and while teachers and other city employees were allowed to work from home, we did not have that option. One year later, we were told get the jab or lose your job. Funny how we went from heroes to unpersons.

The first union to agree to the mandate was DC 33 and the City reached an agreement with DC 47 on January 14. One of the conditions in the City’s agreements with DC 33 and DC 47 is that any eventual deal with the other labor unions that includes more favorable terms must automatically be extended to their members—including any change to the City’s initial January 14 deadline (to either get a first dose of vaccine or submit an exemption request).

If I’m going to be completely honest, Philadelphia’s Fraternal Order of Police is, mostly, a completely useless organization. That said, I was surprised they fought the mayor on this issue, because they usually roll over for the Democrats.

Due to this and based on pending agreements and discussions with the City’s unions, until a full award from the interest arbitration panel governing the FOP contract is issued, the City is issuing a temporary stay on placing any represented employee on leave. The City expects the final award by the arbitration panel to be announced in the coming weeks. The City will continue to assess the impact of these awards on the agreements with the remaining labor unions.

Philadelphia earned 562 homicides last year, and ninety-one carjackings in the first thirteen days of 2022. Violence in this city is out of control, but this jackass wants to place police officers, firefighters, and other essential personnel on leave because they won’t take the jab? S-M-R-T.

562, A New League Record!

The city of Philadelphia earned a new murder record after finishing 2021 with 562 homicides. The city earned three more homicides on New Year’s Eve, and I believe Philadelphia has the most murders per capita than any other city in America.

Suck on that, Chicago!

Of course, this garbage city couldn’t help themselves on the first day of the year, as we earned three more homicides in the first eight hours of 2022.

A deadly start to 2022 in Philadelphia. Two people are dead and three more are injured after a shooting early Saturday morning near Temple University’s campus in North Philadelphia.

Just hours into the New Year and Philadelphia has already recorded its first two homicides for the year. The shooting happened shortly before 2 a.m. just off of Temple’s campus at 17th and Cecil B. Moore Streets.

The city doesn’t update their murders on weekends – ironically, when most of the homicides occur – but my coworkers said we had at least three murders in the first eight hours of 2022. It’s going to be another violent year, and I can almost guarantee we’ll top 2021’s numbers.

You can lay the blame at the feet of Mayor Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney, D.A. Larry Krasner, and Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw.

The Best Story You’ll Read All Week

For the record, this incident occurred on December 22, but since I cannot stand this bitch, I figured her misery could wait. Meet leftist PA congresscritter Mary Gay Scanlon. Scanlon was taking a tour of FDR Park in South Philadelphia, when she was accosted by a few of the city’s thugs. The thugs approached this fossil, pulled out a firearm, and demanded her car keys and purse, then fled with her vehicle.

This story made my heart grow three times that day.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon was carjacked at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon at a South Philadelphia park — as the city continues to see a surge in crime that has been downplayed by the far-left district attorney.

Scanlon, a Democratic congresswoman from Pennsylvania, was returning to her vehicle at about 2:45 p.m. following a tour of FDR Park when she was targeted by two men in a dark-colored SUV, WPVI reported.

FDR Park is usually a very nice spot. There are skateboard and bike parks there that my kids have gone to repeatedly. We’ve never had any trouble there, and I assume the thugs don’t go near the boarders, because they know what will happen if they come across a bunch or angry skaters.

The men demanded the keys to Scanlon’s vehicle, which she handed over. The station reported that Scanlon’s personal cell phone, government-issued cell phone, purse and identification were inside the vehicle.

Scanlon is far from the first carjacking victim in Philadelphia this year, with police reporting 720 such crimes as of Dec. 9, compared to 409 last year and 225 in 2019. (H/TMike AKA Proof)

Scanlon, for her part, demanded “common sense gun control laws” because no one ever buys their guns on North Philly streets. Yeah, good luck with that, you stupid bint.

Temple University Is A Garbage School

You may remember this post from last week, where the Soros-appointed district attorney dropped all charges on a full-time thug, who then went and murdered a Temple University student. In the aftermath of the homicide, the “elites” at Temple have decided maybe it wasn’t the best idea to push away the only people who can stop crime on their uber-violent campus.

In response to the murder of one of its students, Temple University President Dr. Jason Wingard said in an email it will “work with the Philadelphia Police Department to increase their presence off campus,” to boost student security.

The move comes after a year in which Temple administrators and students have debated and occasionally embraced facets of the “Defund the Police” movement, which sprang up in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an event so shocking it ignited a new, national reckoning on race.

Oh gee, that’s so magnanimous of you. These people couldn’t care less about the police; they’re only working with us because students do not want to attend college in a war zone.
