The City Of Brotherly Shootings

By Wyatt Earp | October 11, 2010

Anyone who spends even a little time reading this blog knows that when it comes to shootings, this city is Detroit-East. Our homicide count is at 249, but our shootings are way, way up. I wonder why that is?

Oh yeah, it’s because the savages in this city carry their guns everywhere; to the corner, to the store, and apparently, to prayer vigils. Yeah, you read that correctly. Some jerkass brought a shotgun to a prayer vigil this weekend. Because everyone brings a shotgun to a prayer vigil.

What was supposed to be a night of mourning turned into a night of violence Saturday night at 58th and Elmwood.

Three teenage boys and one teenage girl were shot at a vigil for the boy who was killed in a trash truck accident on Friday. Police say that someone at the vigil pulled out a shotgun and opened fire.

A male suspect is currently in police custody. No motive for the shooting has been revealed.

It’s Philadelphia. Since when do the animals need a reason to shoot people?

    Howdy Wyatt! I just thank you and the entire Philladelphia PD for trying to keep a lid on things here and to keep decent, law abiding citizens safe. THANK YOU.

    And I don’t mean to hijack or derail this thread, but think you should be aware of the following:
    “(Fox News) – More than one week after its extended deadline, New York still hasn’t mailed out absentee ballots to all its 320,000 military servicemen and women and overseas voters, in clear violation of the MOVE Act, has learned.
    Moreover NYS is going to disenfranchise US TROOPS from voting (or at least Troops from NYS) and not even attempt to get ballots to them in time.

    This is reason number 7,365,896,019 that I never leave home without some family protection. No one can ever say WHERE it will happen.

    Reason #93,846,293,746 for more law abiding citizens to carry. He gets off one shot (maybe) and 20 people pull their guns and take care of him.

    Police get called for clean-up duty and the court system doesn’t get bogged down.

    Randal – A really long overcoat?

    Real – Governor Ed Rendell was infamous for doing this during his regime. And when the ballots would come back, he tried to hold them out of the balloting. Despicable that our troops are treated in such a manner.

    Danny – When I worked patrol in Kensington, I have my standard 35 rounds for my city-issued Glock, but I always carried an extra box of 9mm ammo in my briefcase. Just in case all Hell broke loose.

    Kim – No argument there. My former partner gave me an ankle holster his brother used to use. I’m gonna put it to good use with my S&W .38 snubnose.

    I carry a total of 46 rounds in and for my Glock 22 .40cal

    Rick – We carry the magazine, plus one in the chamber, and an extra mag. 17, 17, and 1.

    And you wonder why I drive AROUND Philly and NYC???

    what NFO said. I generally avoid the city, though lately have been dragged downtown a bit more by friends. I never leave home without my weapon though, especially when I enter that city “of the first class”.

    Old NFO – I have to do that on Saturday. Going to CT on business.

    Smite – Your “weapon” being your firearm, right? Heh.
