Philadelphia: City Of Animals

By Wyatt Earp | July 6, 2010

Yes, come to Philadelphia, America! Come celebrate Independence Day at the birthplace of the nation! Then, walk home from the fireworks and get your ass kicked!

As the crowds cleared for the night, a chaotic scene erupted on South Broad Street, near City Hall. Viewer video, obtained exclusively by Action News, shows an unruly crowd of young people flooded into the streets. Police rushed to the scene.

Jay Ingersoll captured the home video. Jay explains to Action News, “We left the fireworks probably not even five minutes into [the show]… and we left and we walked down Chestnut Street. And we got to 15th and Chestnut and we heard ‘Flash mob, flash mob, flash mob!’”

He said he saw fights breaking out, people getting punched as police moved in to try and make arrests.

Typical Philly animals. Why anyone would come to this town for a huge event like this is simply beyond me. Stay home, America. You’re safer there.

    I was down there with the family. I parked at 23rd and Race. (20 bucks) I and the wife, of course, went legally armed. So my wife and I saw some good musical acts and watched a pretty good fireworks display. It took us 2.5 hours to get home after the event. I now know why there were no cops working traffic lights on 23rd to get us over Market.

    This is truly sad.

    Maybe adults can form their own version of flash mobs, converging on gangs of punks confiscating firearms, brass knuckles etc. then dress them appropriately, tie them to chairs and teach them history or something. I can see it now: One sobbing youth told…”They surrounded me, dressed me in conservative clothes tied me to a desk and taught me that a vector has both magnitude and direction..IT WAS HORRIBLE!!”

    Sorry about all of the problems in Philly. You could have put the word “Chicago” where it said “Philadelphia” and I wouldn’t have batted an eye.

    May I ask something, is Philadelphia a Democratic haven for ghost payrollees, patronage jobs, unbridled corruption from the Mayor’s office to the Dog Catcher and essentially a bad hangover of LBJ’s “Great Society”.

    Sort of like say Chicago?

    @ Ferrell: yeah, pretty much.

    And my family still cannot figure out why I hate cities. “City of Brotherly Love” my @$$. I swear, as soon as I get out of school, and find a job, and somewhere to live… *sigh*, thanks Govt. f*** ups intervention… but anyway, soon as I can afford it, I’m moving as far away from Philly as I can (and I don’t even live in the city itself).

    Which is precisely WHY I stay home, and why I live 90 miles and two counties away from my Cop Shop. You can have big cities. I’m about a year away from retirement and I am so, SO ready at 35+ years.

    Watching my department self-immolate doesn’t help either.

    Danny – Yeah, they were busy caging the animals.

    Jon – We would, but you see, we all have jobs.

    Ferrell – I like to think of us as “Chicago-East.”

    Raptor – I love the city. I just despise the politicians, the unions, and the thugs that infest it.

    BZ – I think that’s a national epidemic. My department is self-destructing before my eyes, and I have about 21 more years to go before I retire.

    Sounds like you need to get yourself out to a rural area somewhere in a nice, dark red state…..

    Hell, Wyatt could probably be a chief in some of the townships out my way. A lot safer, fer sure.

    Wyatt (et al):
    I know full well how these beasts operate…seen it there all too often.
    I left Philly in 1996..didn’t really look back. All my “buds” moved on as well, spread to the 4 winds.

    What I hear about and read about (in MY birthplace) both saddens AND pisses me the hell off…mostly, the LATTER.

    But this is what happens when Democrats are allowed to run free with citizens’ bank accounts, and permnitted to “entitle” an entire portiion OF that population at the expense of the law-abiding people.

    Trouble with those people who are entitled…they ALWAYS want MORE.
    (and usually find some method to get it, even if it means trashing a city along the way)

    A little “martial-law” in Philly would go a LONG way, that’s for sure.

    If you don’t take BACK your city, it WILL indeed become another DETROIT.

    And I can’t imagine our Cradle of Liberty being subjected to that…by ANYone…at ANY time.

    Excellent post and comments, gang!

    Well said.

    George – The savages are ruining this town, day by day.

    Fenway – Find me one semi-close and I’ll go. Jersey, New York, Ohio?

    Bob – I like what I’m doing, though. I’m my own boss – for my cases – and my position is not political.

    Bob G. – If you ask me, this city is about 6 months from being completely and irreparably lost.
