Philadelphia reports 90 arrests during Walter Wallace protests, braces for more

At least 90 people were charged during violent protests in Philadelphia Monday following the police shooting death of a knife-wielding black man, police said Tuesday — as the city braced for the possibility of another night of unrest.

“This completely caught us off guard in the sense that, one, no one can predict that there’s an officer-involved shooting,” Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “And, two, once we arrived there, we saw that there would be civil unrest.”

Police initially reported at least 33 arrests but upgraded the number Tuesday.

Outlaw said three people were issued citations for failure to disperse, 11 were charged with assaulting police officers, and 76 were charged with burglary — including three involving guns, the outlet said.

Another riot. This time in Philadelphia.

The unexpected outburst of violence now has city officials contemplating deployment of the National Guard.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney acknowledged that he discussed the guard with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf but did not say if a decision was made.

Philadelphia police say 1,000 looters targeting businesses on second night of protests
https://www.foxnews.com/us/night-two-of-philadelphia-unrest-begins-as-wallaces-kids-speak-out

Quote
A second night of unrest in Philadelphia began Tuesday night over the police shooting death of a Black man, just as his children recalled memories of their father in front of reporters and 1,000 looters reportedly began targeting businesses, police said.

Three of Walter Wallace Jr's., sons remembered their father during a news conference surrounded by family and community members.

"We always go places," said one child, whose name was not revealed. "He always teach [sic] me how to be a man. And these white racist cops got my own dad. And Black Lives still matter."

The riots rage on the second night.

Quote
Elsewhere in the city, looters ransacked a Foot Locker, Rite Aid and other retail stores. At least one vehicle was set on fire.

The Philadelphia Police Department warned people to avoid the Port Richmond area where at least 1,000 looters were ransacking businesses that included a Burlington Coat Factory, Target and Dollar General.

Videos posted to social media showed people running out of a Walmart with clothes, electronics and other merchandise. Some showed stores in disarray as looters grabbed various items from shelves and left. One person was seen hauling away what appeared to be a washing machine.

Seems like Target is a target of looters.

A 15-year-old girl and an 18-year-old man were among the 11 people shot in areas of the city targeted by looters. At least some of the gunfire included looters shooting at other looters, though reports could not confirm if any of the shooting victims were fatally wounded.

Someone wanted the piece of the pie.

Stunning video shows looters ransack Philadelphia boutique in minutes
https://nypost.com/2020/10/29/looters-ransack-philadelphia-boutique-amid-protests/

Quote
Looters destroyed a Philadelphia business this week in a crazy scene captured by a security camera.

The 53-second video shows dozens of looters cramming into La’vanter Boutique, a small clothing store in North Philly, and ripping it apart around 4 a.m. Tuesday, according to Jameelah Scurry, who co-owns the business with her brother Jamil.

Two women first enter the store, the video shows, and begin tearing shirts and handbags off the racks.

“Bro, grab what you want,” one woman is heard saying.

This is so wrong!  :mad:

Quote
But there is a bright spot. Scurry took to GoFundMe to try to raise some cash to help bring her business back to life.

She was aiming to raise $15,000. As of Thursday evening, she had raised more than $27,600 from hundreds of strangers who posted outpourings of support on the site.

“It’s what I was telling people, like we, as a community, and people can come together, but we don’t have to just come together when there’s trauma or something bad,” she said. “We should always stick together and help each other, not when just something bad is happening. It’s a blessing.”

Federal authorities utilize 1968 ‘civil disorder law’ to charge violent protesters
https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/federal-authorities-utilize-1968-civil-disorder-law-to-charge-protesters/

Quote
PHILADELPHIA, PA – In order to address the violence and destruction present in decidedly non-peaceful protests across the United States, federal officials have utilized a 1968 civil rights statute to bring federal charges against violent perpetrators.

That statute, reportedly rarely utilized since the days of the Nixon administration, has lately been brought forth in approximately two dozen cases across the country.

Good! Throw the books at them!

Quote
“The City’s residents deserve to have their voices heard, and they deserve safe and secure neighborhoods, not mayhem.

“Mayhem – in the form of rioting, looting, robbery, arson, destruction of property, attacks on police officers and other forms of violence – does not bring justice.  It accomplishes nothing.”

In a message to potential violent protestors, he added:

“If you are a protestor trying to communicate a message, engaging in mayhem obscures that message.  It also turns public opinion squarely against you.

Rioting is terrorism.

Quote
Supporters of alleged Philadelphia arsonist Anthony Smith claim that Smith was targeted because he is an activist for the Philadelphia Coalition for Racial Economic and Legal Justice.

Coalition spokesperson Deandra Jefferson called the charges “ridiculous.”

Jackson Kusiak, of the Human Rights Coalition of Pennsylvania, pointed to what he apparently thought was political motivation behind the use of the law, saying:

“I think this is case-in-point where they’re taking orders from Attorney General William Barr, they’re unsealing indictments within a week of an election, and they’re applying a law that hasn’t been used since the Nixon administration.”
