At least 4 police officers shot in Philadelphia.

CBSN (a cable news channel) is livestreaming it.

Now possibly up to 6 officers shot or injured.

The incident might be narcotics related.

This time black islamists, perhaps.

Open opportunity society. :roll:

But more realistically: oh no not again. :(

This is most likely gang related.

The majority of shootings, particularly in urban cities are tied to drugs and gang violence.

Quote:
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), gang homicides accounted for roughly 8,900 of 11,100 gun murders in both 2010 and 2011. That means that there were just 2,200 non gang-related firearm murders in both years in a country of over 300 million people and 250 million guns.

Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and New Orleans all have very high per-capita murder rates. Individual police estimates usually find at least 65% and often more than 80% of all murders in those cities are gang-related.

The City Of Brotherly Love.

Another Dem-run war zone.

Right you are:

Quote:
The city has voted Democratic in every presidential election since 1936. In 2008, Democrat Barack Obama drew 83% of the city's vote. Obama's win was even greater in 2012, capturing 85% of the vote. In 2016, Democrat Hillary Clinton won 82% of the vote.[247]

From Wikipedia

Also, a Democrat has won EVERY election for Mayor of Philadelphia since 1952.
67 years run by the same party.


That is almost as long as the Communist Party ruled the Soviet Union. :lol:
