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.

Seven Shot In Fishtown Neighborhood

Saturday was another banner night for shootings in Philadelphia, where seven people were shot in the Fishtown section of the city. This is another part of the city where the idiot politicians think a few new stores and some condos will change a drug-infested area.

Philadelphia police are investigating a shooting in the city’s Fishtown section that left seven people wounded.

The shooting happened Friday around 8 p.m. on the 1000 block of North Delaware Avenue. Police say surveillance video shows a suspect opening fire at a group of people standing on the street.

Officials say four of the seven victims are currently listed in critical condition at various hospitals. The other three victims are currently listed in stable condition.

Police say the victims range from age seventeen to forty two.

We’re already at 114 homicides, and it’s not even April yet. No one cares about the murders in this city, because the politicians live far away from the worst, most violent sections of the city. Pathetic.

Speaking Of Sh*t Holes…

While the city of Philadelphia has already crossed the 100 mark for homicides, the fine, upright citizens of this town enjoy variety. Sure, they shoot people all the time, but the also stab people, run people down with their vehicles, on, and throw Molotov cocktails into day care centers.

Philadelphia police have arrested a man who allegedly threw a Molotov cocktail at a day care center Tuesday morning. The incident happened in the 2700 block of Germantown Avenue just after 9 a.m..

The device broke the window of the day care, but the fire did not reach the inside of the building. According to police, no children were inside the facility at the time.

There were no children in the location at the time, but this a-hole didn’t know that. This is what Philadelphia has become; a desolate wasteland consumed with violence.

The Gita Will Bring Your Pita

The Philadelphia International Airport – arguably the worst major airport in America – has hired a fleet of rolling robots to deliver food to passengers while they’re waiting for their ten-hour late flights while watching Brian Stelter on the TV.

People waiting at Philadelphia International Airport can now get food delivered to them, contact-free, thanks to a new robot. The droid is called a gita – pronounced jee-tah.

Then the gita uses Bluetooth to follow an airport AtYourGate representative through the airport, right to where the passenger is located in the airport.

The gita, which can carry up to 40 pounds, features a cargo bin to hold guests’ orders. Once the gita arrives, passengers can open the robot’s bin and remove the food order for themselves.

Since this is Philadelphia, there is a better than average chance the robot will draw a gun and take your money, jewelry, and your dignity before rolling away.

Soros DA Covers Up Wall Of Remembrance

Larry Krasner – the Soros bought-and-paid-for Philadelphia District Attorney – has covered up the DA’s Office Wall of Remembrance, which memorializes police officers killed in the line of duty.

In a move that’s sure to offend every cop in the city, District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office has covered up a “Wall of Remembrance” that features a couple dozen plaques honoring hero cops who died in the line of duty.

The Wall of Remembrance is located on the mezzanine level inside the Ray Harley Conference Room at the D.A.’s office at 3 S. Penn Square.

I’ve been to the conference room a few times, and the wall is beautiful and sobering. Not that you can see it anymore, because this particular district attorney is a cop-hating piece of garbage.

“A f**king disgrace,” said one cop. “Here’s what Krasner thinks of cops who have died in the line of duty,” texted another cop who sent along the photo at left. In the photo, the wall is covered with a backdrop that bears the repeated images of the DAO logo of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.

We already knew that Larry Krasner hates cops. When he was a defense lawyer, he sued the police department 75 times. At his victory party, the crowd chanted “F**k the FOP.”

Disrespectful actions such as these are why I decided to retire. And it’s not just me; there are over 700 officers in the DROP Program. The department has an average of 20-30 officers leaving the job every month. Combine that with the mayor’s promised hiring freeze until 2023, and pretty soon this 5,500 person police department will soon be a 4.000 police department.

You think 500 homicides are bad? Imagine what the number will be in a year or two.

Hauling Parts

Philadelphia Police stopped a U-Haul rental truck after it was seen in a report of a burglary. Unfortunately, when officers checked the vehicle they found something more inside than stereos and televisions.

Philadelphia police are investigating after multiple body parts were discovered at two crime scenes on Thursday. Investigators said the cases could be connected. Around 9 a.m. on the 1000 block of Sanibel Street in the city’s Somerton section, officers found a dismembered body in a trash bag in the back of a U-Haul van during a traffic stop.

The location of this homicide is less than two miles from my home.

On Thursday night, officers found more body parts, specifically a leg and a hand, in a dumpster behind a Wawa at Kelvin Street and Bustleton Avenue less than a third of a mile away from the first crime scene. Police said the body parts could belong to the same victim.

Police have not said if the body found in the U-Haul was positively identified as Peter Gerold. Sources, however, said investigators also found pieces of body parts in an unattached garage behind his home and it looks like someone tried to burn the body, too. (H/TMike AKA Proof)

The Somerton neighborhood has a very large Russian/Ukraine population. There has always been a mob presence in Northeast Philadelphia, and honestly, this seems like the case here. Philly usually uses handguns. Dismembering a body is not a weapon in our usual thug’s arsenal.

Killing Is Their Business

It goes without saying the city of Philadelphia learned nothing from its 500* homicides in 2020, and celebrated 2021 with a bang. In this case, more than sixty bangs in the first thirty-nine days of the year.

Philadelphia homicides in 2021 are already outpacing a violent 2020 that saw a total of 499 by the time the year was done. Seven people lost their lives in shootings Monday, including a 15-year-old boy who was killed in South Philadelphia.

The local lapdog media is going with the erroneous 499 number, when the real number is closer to 505.

As of 11:59 p.m. Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department had reported 62 homicides in Philadelphia in the year 2021. That’s up 55% over the same date in 2021, according to the department’s website. While 2020 became one of Philadelphia’s deadliest years in decades, the city didn’t reach 60 murders until Feb. 28 of last year.

In twenty-six years, I don’t remember a time when he had seven homicides in one day. If that’s not a city record, it has to be pretty damned close. This is what happens when you have a Soros-appointed anarchist DA, a drunken mayor who is looking ahead to a gubernatorial run, and a police commissioner so far out of her league that she cannot hold a press conference without getting the meat sweats.

Speaking of Commissioner Outlaw, she has a great plan to minimize the homicides in the city. Her answer? Social media efforts! Seriously.

Moving forward, Outlaw says the department is doing what it can to bolster its social media efforts with detectives and analysts. The department will also be partnering with community groups and the Office of Violence Prevention to get ahead of domestic violence incidents and reprioritize those incidents internally.

*We eclipsed 500 in 2020, and likely finished the year with 504 or 505.
