Night Of Chaos; Reporter Brutalized By “BLM Rioters” Tyler Durden

After 30 officers
were wounded on Monday evening,
including one who remains
hospitalized with a broken leg after being hit by a truck,
thousands of looters massed in downtown Philadelphia on Tuesday for
a second night of chaos, where entire big box department stores
were emptied of merchandise, while officers were attacked and at
least one reporter was badly beaten.

Fewer police were injured on Tuesday, possibly due to the fact
that they gave the worst of the rioters a wide berth, at one point
reporting that there were several thousand people in the afflicted
area of West Philadelphia, looting stores and carrying off
everything from food to big-screen TVs.


Some on social media couldn’t help but make light of the
situation (after all, humor is one of the most effective coping
mechanisms).

Of course, it’s not a riot without copious video of masked
thieves pouring out of department stores clutching whatever
merchandise they could grab.

At one point, the rioters stopped to terrorize a Jewish
neighborhood.

Philly’s national guard mobilized Tuesday in response to the
prior night’s unrest, and the police department said even more
officers were on the streets. Some reported that a U-Haul was
driven up to a Wal-Mart in Philly, where it was quickly filled with
merchandise.

Notably, PA’s Dem Governor Tom Wolf broke with other democratic
governors and ordered in the guard without hesitation, a clear sign
that he’s aware the unrest could impact the results of the upcoming
presidential race, in which Philly is a critical swing state (some
say whoever wins Philadelphia will carry the day).

In a statement, the White House denounced the violence and
looting as yet another consequence of Democratic officials

Philly’s Mayor Jim Kenney yesterday urged everybody to withhold
their judgment pending an investigation, though he acknowledged
that the footage of the incident was alarming and presents
“difficult questions.”

Like many of you, I viewed the
video of the tragic shooting of Walter Wallace, Jr. that occurred
yesterday. It presents difficult questions that must be answered.
The Officer Involved Shooting Investigation Unit of @PhillyPolice
will conduct a full investigation.

Meanwhile, the official account for the Philly police tweeted
throughout the night, first warning citizens to avoid the area of
Castor and Aramingo where most of the looting took place.

Outside West Philly (where a certain Fresh Prince was memorably
born and raised), about 1,000 other looters hit shops in the Port
Richmond neighborhood in the northern section of the city.

*Alert* A large crowd of appx
1000 is looting businesses in the area of Castor and Aramingo.
Avoid the area

The Philadelphia Police
Department is requesting that all residents in the 12, 16, 18, 19,
24, 25, and 26th Districts remain indoors except when necessary.
These areas are experiencing widespread demonstrations that have
turned violent with looting.

The violent protests broke out hours after Philadelphia cops
shot and killed 27-year-old Walter Wallace Jr. on Monday, after his
family summoned police to the house once again for help dealing
with his mental health issues. At one point, he advanced on police
with knife, after refusing orders to drop it, provoking police to
open fire. Police officials said the men weren’t armed with tasers
due to budget cuts. Video of the incident went viral on social
media. The man’s father told the press that his son had been shot
at least ten times, though he denounced the violence and
looting.

At least 90 people have been charged in the violent protests so
far, police said Tuesday, and that number could rise as
investigations continue and the unrest intensifies.

BlazeTV reporter Elijah Shaffer was badly beaten after being
jumped by “BLM rioters” while filming inside a store that was being
actively looted.

He published footage of the encounter, and its aftermath,
below.

rioters while they were looting more than a dozen stores,

including Wal-Matt, T-Mobile, & 5-below

Though in pain, I didn’t stop reporting because

PHILADELPHIA: This is the
footage I was recording when BLM assaulted me.

Other journalists were filming but I was the only white person in
the store

I do believe I was targeted for being white as they accused me of
being a white supremacist

movement after soldiers opened fire on protesters a few nights
ago.
