Philly Police Shoot, Kill Armed Suspect

Hey Mayor Squidward, you might want to purge this guy from the voter rolls.

Philadelphia police said they shot and killed a man who engaged officers in a violent struggle late Sunday after he was asked to stop while riding a bike in West Philadelphia. Police did not identify the man, who was 35.

Two officers attempted to stop a bicyclist near 61st and Arch Streets about 11:45 in relation to an incident that occurred earlier in the night.

The man tried to pedal away but fell off the bike. The officers saw the man brandishing a handgun when he stood, and a violent struggle ensued. The officers tried to wrest the gun from the man, and one officer fired three times. A loaded .45-caliber handgun was found at the scene.

The thug is dead, the officers were uninjured, and the gun was recovered. Sounds like a fine job all around.

    Hey, I thought Philly had some tough gun laws, in regards to concealed carry? Oops, I guess he didn’t get that memo in regards to his TPS reports. Here in DC, they have tough gun laws…that’s why no gun crime is committed in DC? I crack myself up, no gun crime in DC? I think Nutter and Gray, are probably the two worst mayors in the USSA. Mumbles Menino and little man Bloomie are right behind these phi beta kappas.

    Unfortunately, he’s one of many that need to be thinned from the herd.

    But, but, he was turning his life around, heading to church to tutor poor, disabled children before bringing his grandma flowers and heading to off to school to learn how to save the world…

    Glad the cops are ok. :)

    Glad the officers are ok – and not feeling bad for the DUMB scumbag.

    Stay safe Wyatt.

    I may rant about a coercive gov’t, bonehead thug cops, and complain about the direction of our country – but, that said: I love our LEOs. I’ve been to combat twice, and honestly, I’m not sure I could do what most cops do day in and day out. At least we go over there and come home for a year – you guys just keep plugging away. Kudos sir.

    In a perfect world Christina would be ringing my doorbell about now.

    “..purge him from the voter roles”…LMAO!

    NO officers down – FANTASTIC.
    One dead perp – EXQUISITE!

    I’d call that a good day’s work.

    Stay safe out there.
