PHILADELPHIA-June 21, 2005. A Philadelphia police officer who was hurt during protests in Philadelphia has died from his injury. Protestors are demonstrating against a major biotech conference in Center City. Sources tell Action News that some of the radical organizations were threatening violence today.
The protest was at 12th and Arch streets in Philadelphia. Officer Paris Williams, 52, was kicked by at least one of the protestors after falling to the ground. He was an 18-year veteran of the police force and a father of 2.
The incident that lead to Williams death happened just outside the Pennsylvania convention center at about 12:45pm.
Officer Williams, had water thrown at him by one of these scumbags. The scumbag fled like the coward he is, and Officer Williams gave pursuit. When Williams caught him, the scumbag kicked the officer in the chest. Williams claimed he was okay, and continued his tour of duty. A little while later, Williams was in another scuffle with these “peaceful”protestors, when he suffered a fatal heart attack.
No one can tell me that the original offender didn’t contribute to the death of Officer Williams.
In any other city, the criminals involved in Officer Williams’ murder would be charged accordingly. According to the PA Crimes Code, the scumbag who kicked Williams should be charged with Second Degree Murder. Unfortunately for police officers like myself, this is Philadelphia. Uber-corrupt Mayor John Street’s equally inept D.A. Lynne Abraham has decided to charge the offenders with Aggravated Assault – which will surely plea down to a misdemeanor.
I friggin’ hate this town.
