Philadelphia erupts in protests after deadly police shooting, 90 arrested

Violence erupted in Philadelphia after protesters took to the streets following the fatal shooting of a black man. Over 90 people have been arrested for rioting. Walter Wallace Jr was killed when two officers fired 14 shots at him for allegedly not dropping a knife while advancing towards them. Mayor Jim Kenney said the shooting showed how ’our systems failed to protect black men.’

I watched the video of this shooting yesterday. He was either out of it, incredibly stupid or just suicidal. The police repeatedly told him to backup, whilst backing away from him, but he kept on coming at them knife in hand. See link below and watch the video, but be warned it does show the shooting. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13031910/blm-protests-philadelphia-cop-truck-shooting/

“In Washington, the White House issued a statement just before 1 a.m. Wednesday asserting that the unrest was another consequence of “Liberal Democrats’ war against the police” and that the Trump administration “stands proudly with law enforcement, and stands ready, upon request, to deploy any and all Federal resources to end these riots.” Way to go, WH! Create more division with statements like this saying it is the fault of your opponents when in reality it is you who has failed to address and offer any solutions to the repeated killing of black people at the hands of the police. And, even better, offer a solution of force to suppress the upheaval because I’m sure that will solve the underlying problem of police violence and their lack of training to handle people with mental issues.
