During the month of protests against police brutality in Philadelphia, more than 750 people were arrested for curfew violations, failure to disperse, and disorderly conduct. [Snip] “My decision to waive these violations is not a statement on the validity of the individual citations,” Kenney said in a statement. “Rather, it is a recognition of the core concerns that caused thousands to demonstrate on the streets of Philadelphia. 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”

Comments:

FTA - "needs to be heard every day until systemic racism is fully eradicated from this city and nation." Cowards. Tell that to the shop owners and businesses whose properties were damaged or destroyed by these "peaceful" rioters. Philadelphia will join other Dem cities by getting more of this.

That should discourage them from it getting worse next time. The cops once again are the suckers for coming to work.

Oh. So I can go to Philly and do whatever destructive or illegal things that I want and all I have to do to escape justice is say that I’m doing it because BLM? I went to college in Philly during the 4 years leading up to the bicentennial and it was a lovely time to be there. Lots of urban renewal going on, everything being cleaned up, new restaurants and shops - all in preparation for July 4, 1976. I wouldn’t even drive by it now on the interstate.

So, this is Filthy-Delphia. Dark, dark blue s-hole. Where history confirms that voters are so patriotic that the turnout in some precincts exceeds 100%. No doubt that in return for their release, these fine folks had to agree to vote for Biden at least three times this November.

The very definition of "obstruction of justice". Kenney needs to be arrested immediately. You don't have to make the accusation that the decision wasn't made on the merits of the case but on an ideological and politically motivated agenda. The statement has been made by the perp.

I declined an opportunity for an exchange of ideas and cultural perspectives in Philly around 1990 when my rental car was rear ended at a stop light. I must say I was impressed by the number of greeters sent my way who I'm sure were highly insulted by my reluctance to accept the gesture of hospitality. Of course that was the one red light I could blow without getting pulled over. When I shared my confession and regrets upon returning the car, the agency applauded my decision. Needless to say the current circumstances somewhat dampen my enthusiasm for making my triumphant return to business in Philly that I expect to start next year.

OK, now that the folks know the laws don't apply any more, and that violent leftist thugs in the streets won't be punished by "the justice system", they know that if they want these people to be punished, it will have to happen in the streets. When the legal system fails, eventually even good, normal people will fall back on their own capabilities. People will not endlessly let violent thugs run rampant in their towns. They expect the police and prosecutors to protect them. When that fails, something else will replace it. These criminals in suits sitting in the city offices have no idea what they will be unleashing if this continues. Who killed Ken McElroy? Who is Paul Kersey?

Any city that refuses to prosecute rioters is saying they do not support law and order. They will not protect their citizens. They serve at the pleasure of the mob, rather than for their citizens. To these cities, my sentiments surprisingly join with the rioters and say "Let this city burn. After it is laid bare to wanton destruction by the anarchists, may a better one someday rise in its place."

So Mayor Kenney waives all citations and the thugs go free with no penalty. But Oh, not all are black, so white lives matter too. What about the people who lost their livelihood and homes - what do they receive? Those who destroyed the city, should be put to work to cleanup the mess they caused and apologize to all the citizens of Philadelphia.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats approved a far-reaching police overhaul Thursday, a vote heavy with emotion and symbolism as a divided Congress struggles to address the global outcry over the deaths of George Floyd and other Black Americans. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gathered with members of the Congressional Black Caucus on the Capitol steps, challenging opponents not to allow the deaths to have been in vain or the outpouring of public support for changes to go unmatched. But the collapse of a Senate Republican bill leaves final legislation in doubt.

Both the police chief and the mayor have urged the rebels to lay down their arms, but it appears they are refusing to do so. “We want a peaceful & safe resolution to the occupation

Mayor Jacob Frey, who had threatened to veto the entire budget if the council went ahead with a plan to cap police staffing, said the vote was a defining moment for the city which was the first to be hit by anti-police protests following the death of Floyd. The city has been plagued by soaring violent crime since then—with homicide, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft and arson all up on last year's figures.
