Philly Police Shoot, Kill Man With Knife

Minneapolis, Nashville, Chicago all had their fair share of riots in 2020, and once again it appears there will be rioting in Philadelphia after two Philly police officers shot and killed a knife-wielding man.

A 27-year-old man armed with a knife was shot and killed by two officers in West Philadelphia. It happened on the 6100 block of Locust Street Monday when officers were called to the home on the block for a man with a weapon.

“They were immediately met with a male who was carrying a knife. Several times they asked the male to drop the knife. They ordered him to drop the knife and he continued to follow them around several vehicles that are over there,” Philadelphia Police Sgt. Eric Gripp said.

For the record, I have seen the raw footage, which was captured by a resident on his cellphone. Walter Wallace was allegedly involved in a domestic disturbance, and when the officers arrived, he had the knife in his hand and was approaching officers. The officers drew their weapons, commanded Wallace to drop the knife, but Wallace refused. Wallace approached the officers, knife in hand, and the officers retreated multiple times. Still giving commands, Wallace refused to drop the knife, and as he got closer to the officers, he raised his knife hand. The officers fired multiple times, striking Wallace. Police transported Wallace to the hospital, where he eventually died.

We’re taught to observe the 21-foot rule. An attacker can usually rush and attack you before you can reach your weapon if the attacker is within 21 feet. The video shows Wallace well inside that distance.

The good news is our mayor and police commissioner gave the officers the benefit of the doubt…

“I came down here to listen. I don’t have answers for what happened today. But you know, I understand. I understand what you are feeling,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw told residents.

Commissioner Outlaw is very unpopular with the rank and file. She was in hiding during Philadelphia’s George Floyd riots, rarely leaves her office, and when she does, it is usually to pander to the anti-cop crowd. Trust me when I tell you, Outlaw expected these officers to be stabbed first before firing a shot.

Well the mayor surely supported the officers, right?

“My prayers are with the family and friends of Walter Wallace. I have watched the video of this tragic incident and it presents difficult questions that must be answered. I spoke tonight with Mr. Wallace’s family, and will continue to reach out to hear their concerns first-hand, and to answer their questions to the extent that I am able,” he said in a statement Monday night.

The only “difficult questions” which need to be answered are, “Why does this despicable mayor care more for a knife-wielding thug who tried to kill police officers than the officers themselves?”

Look, anyone who reads this blog knows I am not an apologist for police officers. Like every organization, there are bad people and good people. If I thought this was a bad shoot, I’d say so. I watched the raw video a few times now, and there is no doubt in my mind the officers’ actions were justified.

That said, the city will most likely see riots for the next few days (or weeks) and both these officers will be trashed by the mayor, commissioner, and our Soros-appointed D.A. It also wouldn’t surprise me if D.A. Larry Krasner tried to bring charges against the officers involved.

PFD To Joe Biden: Drop Dead

In a stunning move, the Philadelphia Firefighters and Paramedics Union voted to endorse President Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The union broke from the heavily Democratic International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which almost always endorses the Democrat nominee.

The Philadelphia Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Union broke from the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and “proudly” endorsed President Trump for re-election, citing the overwhelming support for the president among members.

“The Philadelphia Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Union, Local 22 of the International Association of’ Fire Fighters proudly endorses President Trump for re-election,” the union announced on Tuesday, hours ahead of the first presidential debate.

My father was a Philly firefighter for more than forty years and he would have hated this decision. Personally, I think it’s glorious.

“The members of Local 22 respectfully break with the undemocratic IAFF endorsement of Joe Biden and pledge our full support to President Donald J. Trump,” President Mike Bresnan said in a statement, explaining that IAFF’s endorsement of Biden was done “without a canvas of local unions and the consideration of the rank and file IAFF membership.”

Local 22 members, which represent over 4,700 current and retired first responders, were surveyed and “overwhelmingly” chose the president, Bresnan said, adding that IAFF leaders should view the endorsement as a “wake-up call.”

The Fraternal Order of Police also runs toward the Democrats, and my local – and useless – FOP always sends out mailers encouraging us to vote for the leftists on the ballot. Most of the cops I know shred those mailers come election time, and when our local FOP considered endorsing Hillary, we unwashed masses went ballistic. Our local FOP punted in 2016, and did not endorse any candidate, despite the popularity of Trump among the members.

I don’t know if this is a turning point for Philadelphia blue collar workers. In fact, I highly doubt it. Trump is a political anomaly, and I think he resonates with regular schmoes, so he’ll likely earn some blue votes. Maybe some Philly Democrats are finally waking up to the fact that their party has done nothing to improve this city in the last seventy years.

Philly City Council Goes Full Retard

The Philadelphia City Council is giving wasting taxpayer money for community groups who are begging citizens to turn in their firearms.

Philadelphia is seeing an increase in shootings so the far-left City Council and police organized a ‘home gun-check campaign’ urging residents to turn in their firearms. Makes sense.

Yes, because every Philadelphian will disarm themselves while the thugs are armed to the teeth.

Voluntary gun buyback programs and other programs aimed at urging residents to voluntarily turn in their firearms would only increase violence because it keeps criminals armed and disarms law abiding citizens.

As of yesterday, the city logged 264 homicides for 2020, a 28% increase over this time last year.

Far left “community groups” with backing from city officials and police are distributing flyers which reads “save a life, turn in a gun.”

Yeah, that’ll work. The left has a vested interest in confiscating the firearms of law-abiding citizens. These community groups will likely knock on doors in the nicer parts of town, but you can be damned sure they won’t lecture people in the hood.

“Get those guns, run that room, see what’s in there. Find out what’s being hidden in your house. Take it out and turn it in,” City Councilmember Cindy Bass said.

First of all, Cindy Bass is the most anti-police councilperson in the city. She despises police, and couldn’t wait to vote to defund the department. Second, she’s not terribly bright. In fact, she’s an outright dullard. Third, what West Philly parent is going to search the room of their thug son and turn in his gun(s) to the police. It’s a sure way to get yourself killed.

Oh, and for the record, I’ve been involved with processing Buy Back guns, and 99.9% of the firearms turned are rusted, missing parts, or something no more lethal than a Derringer. The program is always an absolute farce.

This is a stupid idea, even for Philadelphia.

City’s Closed: Moose Shoulda Told Ya

While most honest Americans can agree New York City’s Bill de Blasio is the worst mayor in America, Philadelphia’s Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney obviously wants a shot at the title. Kenney ordered all large-scale events in the city canceled until March 1, 2021.

The mayor is shutting down Philadelphia for another seven and a half months, for a lockdown of eleven and a half months total. The city, as we know it, will not survive.

In a dramatic step that underscores how long the coronavirus is expected to disrupt daily life, Philadelphia officials on Tuesday canceled all large-scale events in the city through February, including the Philadelphia Marathon, the Thanksgiving Day Parade, block parties, and other iconic traditions.

The 7½-month moratorium is one of various prevention measures that will have to stay in place until the population is vaccinated against the coronavirus, and that won’t happen before 2021, Health Commissioner Thomas Farley said.

Kenney is committing economic suicide. The marathon, the parades, and all the other events bring in millions upon millions of dollars. The city is already carrying a $16.2 billion – with a “b” – debt.

Although there is good news…

The city also said fans will not be allowed at Eagles games: If professional sports teams resume playing, spectators will be barred from the stands, though that is not part of the moratorium.

This fact alone almost makes the shutdown worth it. All the drunken, white trash Eagles fans won’t be able to head to the stadium at 5am, drink until 1pm, cheer on the anti-Semitic players, then vomit on their fellow Eagles fans and assault out-of-towners for an entire season.

Also, Vishnu forbid, if they win a title, there will be no parade. Eat a smorgasbord of dicks, Eagles fans.

The ban does not apply to demonstrations or other First Amendment-protected activities, private outdoor gatherings such as weddings or family picnics, or events on private property, including performance venues and stadiums, Kenney said.

So wait, you won’t let sports fans see their teams play, but a ten-hour concert by Hot Tuna is a-ok? Wow, this is so delicious. It’s as if this assclown has no idea what he’s doing, and has no plan to deal with the Chinese Wuhan Virus. Keep voting Democrat, Philadelphia: it’s worked great so far.

Philly Waives All Charges/Fines For Riots

Hat Tip: Sean Walsh, Philadelphia Inquirer

Philadelphia Mayor Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney has decided to waive all charges, citations, and fines for those who peacefully rioted, set fires, and assaulted police during the George Floyd Riots. (Congratulations George, everyone remembers you now, but only for the destruction they reaped in your name.)

The Democratic mayor of Philadelphia is waiving several hundred citations issued to city residents who violated curfews and failed to disperse as ordered by police during recent demonstrations supporting Black Lives Matter. In addition, Mayor Jim Kenney is tossing out scores of additional violations of the city’s civil codes.

So the dozens and dozens of police officers assaulted – including a few very seriously wounded – will see no justice, because leftist lives matter more than a police officer’s.

“Philadelphia’s Law Department and Office of Administrative Review previously recommended that the city drop most CVNs that had been enforced during the height of civil unrest in the city. Protests have persisted for more than a month in Philadelphia following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in late May,” Philly Voice reported.

CVNs are not criminal offenses, as they only result in fines.

This motherfucker implemented an oppressive city beverage tax, raised property taxes, voted for red light cameras, and installed speed cameras throughout the city. Everything this prick does revolves around taxing the citizens into oblivion, and NOW he decides to waive millions of dollars in fines?

“In waiving these notices, I recognize that those issues are vitally important, that the pain of those marching is very real, and that their message — black lives matter — needs to be heard every day until systemic racism is fully eradicated from this city and nation,” he continued, Philly Voice reported. (H/TMis. Hum.)

Yes, their pain is so real they decided to burn down retail stores, looted those which weren’t on fire, threw rocks and bottles at cops, and literally ran over a police officer with their car. But by all means, dickhead, let them off scot-free.

The worst part of this is because this garbage town lies between New York City and Washington, D.C., it receives very little attention from the national media. The entire nation should know how this leftist clown is destroying this city.

Desean Jackson Is A Racist Anti-Semite

Meet Desean Jackson, a terribly average NFL wide receiver, and a terrible human being. Jackson now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, and like most players on that team, Jackson has a racist agenda.

Take a look at this POS…

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has promoted Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and conspiracy theories about Jewish people and the coronavirus vaccine to his 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

You see, the Jews’ Wuhan Virus vaccine is a secret plot to kill black and brown people. Minister Farrakhan said so, you guys!

Jackson repeatedly promoted Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite, and posted a page from a book that quotes Adolf Hitler and claims Jews are deceiving America from finding out that black people are “the real Children of Israel.”

So wait, Jackson is promoting two notable scholars? Farrakhan and Hitler? In that case, Jackson must be on to something.

“The[y] will extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.”

So this low-IQ football player wants us to believe the Jews are trying to dominate the world with a Wuhan Virus vaccine, then immediately claimed anyone who thinks he has hate for the Jewish community “took my post the wrong way.” Go f**k yourself, clown.

The story broke around 10pm last night. As of 8:30 this morning, the major Philadelphia fish wrap has not printed a word of this despicable story on their website.

Philly PD To Make Sweeping “Reforms”

The Philadelphia Police Department is scheduled to making sweeping (leftist) reforms in the wake of the George Floyd killing. In an email sent out by the police commissioner, they city is going to embrace corrupt, failed President Barack Obama’s anti-police measures and implement them, post haste.

“Today, Mayor Kenney announced several police reform measures, many of which will be implemented in the coming weeks and months. These measures are collaborative in nature, and are essential in strengthening police-community relations, improving as an organization, and augmenting the level of trust garnered from our communities.

The measures described below will greatly assist us in continuing to shift away from dated, archaic, and less-inclusive paradigms, and toward the type of policing model that will serve all communities equally, and enhance our legitimacy in the very communities we are entrusted to protect and serve.

Reform measures include, but are not limited to, acceptance of President Obama’s challenge for law enforcement agencies to review and update use of force policies; creation of a civilian oversight commission; increased transparency in the civilian complaint, investigation, and disciplinary process; creation of staff positions specifically dedicated to diversity and inclusion; establishment of an “early warning system” for tracking employee performance; and increased transparency within the collective bargaining system.”

One of the proposed policies deals with service weapons. Whenever an officer unholster his or her firearm, a Use of Force report will be completed. If the officer then points the firearm at someone, another Use of Force form will be completed. On top of that, the department will be issuing strict regulations for when an officer can draw his or her service weapon, and if the officer is in violation of the new guidelines, they will disciplined, or possibly fired/arrested.

I spent all eleven years in patrol on the overnight shift. Oftentimes I would have to respond to burglary/robbery calls alone, at least until backup arrived. I had my pistol out every time I checked a front or rear door, because that’s usually where the ambush happens.

Under this policy, I would have spent more time filling out forms than patrolling the streets. This directive is ridiculous, and it is going to get police officers killed. Not that the city would care.

Philadelphia 1682-2020

Day Two of the 2020 Philadelphia Riots are in the books, and naturally, it’s more of the same. Police vehicles were burned, businesses were looted and vandalized, and officers were injured. The city was not remotely prepared for these attacks, as it took the mayor nearly two days to realize, “Hey, the Ben Franklin Bridge leads right to Center City. Maybe we should shut it down?”

Jim Kenney finally made the decision Sunday afternoon, days after the Soros’ thugs arrived in town.

Looting and violence spread in Philadelphia Sunday as the fallout of protests over the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis continued.

The funniest part of this is seeing Antifa claim “No justice, no peace,” days after the officer involved in George Lloyd’s death was arrested and charged with murder. Sorry jackasses, but everyone gets their day in court.

In West Philadelphia Sunday, people broke the windshields of various police vehicles, setting one alight near the intersection of Market and N. 52nd streets. Firefighters also responded to a building fire near 52nd and Walnut streets, the same area where stores are being looted.

Responding officers used tear gas and fired non-lethal ammunition to disperse some of the crowd.

Sadly, no one used lethal force. Let me tell you about Sunday night…

We’ve Got Riots!

Hat Tip: Sean Walsh, Philadelphia Inquirer

So last night was fun. Philadelphia, a second-class city, welcomed George Soros’ professional protesters to our town. Most of the city’s uniformed officers were sent to Center City with their riot gear, and endured a rather hellish evening. Two of my detectives were detailed down there as well to help process the multitude of arrests. Many officers were injured and a few police vehicles were destroyed.

The rioters were the usual suspects; some Philly residents looking to loot some free stuff, leftist white women who believe they’re part of Black Lives Matter, and thugs who just want to watch the world burn. They chanted, they vandalized, they threw things at police, and they even blew up a police vehicle

A Pennsylvania State police vehicle caught fire at the intersection of Broad and Vine Streets Saturday as tensions rose between demonstrators and police.

It didn’t “catch fire,” you leftist hack. It was burned by your riotous buddies.

I wonder why Soros’ protesters would set a Pennsylvania State Police cruiser on fire? Oh wait, maybe because Philadelphia’s jackass Mayor Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney effectively gave the rioters carte blanche

A day before a planned demonstration outside City Hall over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Mayor Jim Kenney on Friday vowed that police will treat the protesters with respect, and said he was hopeful the city will avoid the destruction seen in some demonstrations elsewhere.

My sister was working at a downtown hospital while the carnage was going on, and a private ambulance driver told her, “They just wanna be heard because peaceful protests don’t work.” Hey jackass, the main cop responsible for George Floyd’s death was already arrested and charged with murder! What the f**K else do you want?

We’re being told the riots may continue for a few days, so work should be more exciting than usual. I hate this city and I really don’t like this job, but I’ll be brutally honest; I couldn’t care less if the residents or Soros’ thugs burn the entire city down.

Oh, by the way, if you’re a “brave protester,” remove your mask and be proud of what you’re doing. If you’re one of those protesters who covers your face, you are nothing more than a pussy. Own it.

Welcome To Taxadelphia

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has unveiled a plan to “recover” from the Chinese Wuhan virus and its subsequent destruction of an already failing economy. It may surprise you to know Kenney and his leftist City Council will embrace the tried-and-true policies of the Democratic Party.

Mayor Jim Kenney on Friday said his administration made “truly painful decisions” to propose tax hikes, layoffs, and service reductions and fill Philadelphia’s $649 million budget hole, but acknowledged the uphill climb he faces in winning support from City Council and the community.

Kenney was front row, center calling for the city to be shut down. He actively participated in closing businesses and threatened those who ignored his dictates. Now, an already poverty-stricken city is dealing with skyrocketing unemployment numbers, and this asshole thinks the solution is raising people’s taxes? This policy will force people to lose their homes; it will destroy people’s lives!

But the size of the city’s budget hole in 2009 was $108 million, Kenney noted. It is now facing a potential deficit five times as large.

Thanks exclusively to former Mayor Michael Nutter and Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney. These assclowns ran up the deficit, and now Kenney is expecting to balance the budget on the backs of the citizens? Go f**k yourself!

Council President Darrell L. Clarke acknowledged that some tax increases may be necessary. Kenney’s $4.9 billion spending plan, which replaces a more ambitious $5.2 billion budget proposed in March, also includes increases in the parking tax and the wage tax for suburban commuters, and freezes in planned reductions to business taxes and the wage tax rate for residents.

Our taxes are already astronomical; most notably the property taxes, which are crippling. In 2016, this piece of garbage levied America’s first beverage tax on the city, claiming it would raise $91 million in revenue a year. Where did that money go, Jimmy?

Hundreds of city employees will lose their jobs, with some reductions occurring by June; more would follow in August. The city has more than 25,000 full-time employees.

With regards to the service reductions, our trash still gets picked up – and spilled onto the street – once a week, but recycling is now every two weeks. The city public pools will be closed this summer – a necessity in the poor neighborhoods in the summer – and many recreational programs will likely shut their doors. Hopefully, this won’t affect Julia’s dance classes, but I fear it will.

This is what happens when a city enjoys sixty-eight uninterrupted years of Democratic regimes.
