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!

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.
