Philly Police Shoot Two Felons

By Wyatt Earp | September 25, 2010

Dear Philadelphia thugs, I know you want to sell drugs, rape beyotches, and live the Thug Life to the fullest, but when you are carrying your gun, it is a good idea to put it down when your are told. Sure, I know you don’t respect the po-po because we’re living “jacked up” lives, but we enforce the laws here. It’s a good idea to listen to our advice.

Of course since you think you know better, you’ll still point guns at us, or try to take our guns out of our holsters. If you think that is a prudent course of action, then knock yourself out. But know this; if you do try something like that, we are going to respond in kind. Believe me, we’re better shots than you are:

A police officer shot and critically wounded a 43-year-old ex-convict as he reached for another officer’s gun during a struggle in South Philadelphia today, authorities said. It was the second police-involved shooting in a matter of hours, following the fatal shooting of an armed man Thursday night in Frankford.

When officers arrived at the woman’s home on the 1400 block of South 21st Street in Port Breeze about 7:15 a.m., they confronted [Kevin] Rex, who started struggling with one of the officers, police said. When Rex reached for the officer’s gun, the officer’s partner fired, hitting Rex in the chest, police said. Court records show Rex has served time for rape and was awaiting trial for drug possession

Internal Affairs is investigating the shooting as well as one Thursday night that left Tyree Quiah, 22, dead. Quiah, who was awaiting trial on drug and weapons offenses, was shot after 15th District police responded to reports of a person with a gun and gunfire in the area of Bridge and Charles Streets, police said.

The “officer observed the suspect running with a weapon in his hand,” Vanore said Thursday night. The officer caught up to the suspect who refused to show his hands. The officer fired his 9mm Glock, striking the suspect twice in the chest. Quiah was transported by police to Aria Health, where he was pronounced dead at 10:36 p.m. A .22-caliber handgun was nearby, police said.

Here endeth the lesson.

    Why, is it because you don’t hold your guns sideways like the real gangstas do?

    Howdy Wyatt! Sigh, as you well know, those two won’t serve as any kind of lesson to the mofo’s out there.
    Do you have any problems with the Soldiers of Allah in Philly?!

    Looking at the 2011 Gun Digest, .22 Win Mag JHP 40 Gr. has 338 Ft-Lbs of energy at the muzzle. The average 115 Gr. 9mm M92 Beretta load I used along time ago has 341 to 420 Ft-lbs at muzzle and the .22 is much more accurate. I would say by his choice of weapon the thug taken out was the assasin class in his gang. good shootin’ guys. The above was for those that would say…Oh he just had a little .22, that wouldn’t really hurt anybody.

    Hi Wyatt, it’s me – littleoldlady! :-)

    So last night my kid’s car died HARD just off the City Ave bridge going south. She called me and I told her to call the police since she didn’t even have hazard lights and she was afraid she was going to get rear-ended in the dark.

    By the time I got there (I’m about 1/2 hour away in Delco) a very nice policewoman was there calming my daughter down (she was freaked – so was I!) and she helped me push the car off the road into a lot by holding off traffic that was coming off the Expressway ramp.

    NATURALLY, I didn’t get her name, badge number, etc (at 1 am I’m not too sharp:-/ ) but if you can find this lady please tell her I said THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

    My kid = my heart, and screw the car. Know what I mean?

    Hope you are well!

    If only the police could put a 0 after that 2 or maybe 00 then maybe it would send a message to the thugs.

    Old NFO – Shallow gene pool: No lifeguard on duty!

    John D – Yeah, we don;t look cool, but we hit our target.

    Piper – Not sure of that.

    Real – Some, but not as much as you may expect.

    Rick – No more frequent flier miles for you.

    Proof – It’s the only way they’ll learn.

    Jon – Unless the person he hurt was someone close to them. Different story when that happens.

    LOL – That’s the far corner of my division. Probably an officer from the 5th District. If I find out for sure, I promise I will send your thanks. Glad to see she was treated well by the officer, too.

    Ingineer66 – They’re slow learners. But we’re patient teachers.
