Social Breakdown: Riots in Philly Become Normal Occurrence

Racially charged flash mobs target cops, innocent bystanders, and property in the City of Brotherly Love

Police were called over the weekend as hundreds of angry teens rampaged through Philadelphia’s Germantown suburb — for the second time in three weeks.

According to local reports, Philadelphia police officers descended upon the intersection of Chelten Avenue and Anderson Street at about 8:30 p.m. in order to close it off. At least three individuals were arrested for vandalizing police cars.

“By 9:30 the group swelled to nearly 500 young people,” reported WPVI-TV. “Officers blocked off intersections as teens ran up and down main roads, jumped over fences and onto residential properties,” the station reported. “A police chopper hovered over the chaos. A police SUV was damaged.”

Police responded to a similar scene in the same neighborhood less than a month prior, on July 16. Once again roughly 500 agitators, the majority teenagers, descended upon the neighborhood, causing chaos and attacking police officers.

Such scenes have become regular occurrences in the City of Brotherly Love. On October 21, 2016, a group of nearly 200 teens descended on Temple University to hunt down and beat up white people for sport. The Philadelphia Tribune website has numerous articles reporting incidents of mass violence perpetrated by inner city teens dating all the way back to 2011.

“I’ve documented tons of black mob violence in Philadelphia,” noted Colin Flaherty, author of “Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry” and “White Girl Bleed a Lot” and an expert on mob violence in America.

“When people ask why, the only answer is always the same: ‘Because they can,'” Flaherty told LifeZette. “One month ago, Philadelphia had an identical incident in the same place. Five-hundred black people throwing rocks and bottles and bricks at cops for two hours before dispersing,” Flaherty said.

“After the riot, and no one called it that, a Philadelphia police official explained to the press that despite the violence, sometimes it was just better to let these things play out, fizzle out, on their own, instead of cops coming in with force and restoring order,” he said. “It was kind of a Philadelphia version of the infamous quote from the Mayor of Baltimore during that city’s riots: ‘We gave them room to destroy.'”

“The official was very proud of the result: Huge disturbance. Almost no arrests. Which of course is great for the crime numbers, which show nothing really happened there,” Flaherty continued. “But what he was really telling the large group of black people was they could riot any time they wanted, and they had nothing to worry about from the cops,” he said. “They listened, and did it again.”

An atmosphere of anti-police feeling sits heavy in the Philadelphia air. In May, Democrats selected as their candidate for District Attorney Larry Krasner, a radical leftist lawyer who has railed against America’s “systemic” racism and done pro-bono work with groups like Black Lives Matter. Chants of “f**k the police” rang out at his primary victory party.

Krasner “has spent his life on the barricades of the anti-police movement. Attacking police, defending people who attack cops, encouraging others to defy police — all in the name of convincing black people they are relentless victims of relentless white racism all the time, everywhere, and that explains everything,” Flaherty said. The man who wants to be “chief law enforcement officer of Philadelphia … is telling black people they are not responsible for their actions.”

Flaherty also pointed out that such incidents are not confined to Philadelphia — indeed, in the past month similar incidents occurred in Pittsburgh and on Long Island, he said, adding that such incidents have grown in tandem with rising anti-police and anti-white feeling in America.

“The connection is easy to see, but causality is a bit more complicated,” he said. “I don’t know — or even care — which came first, the chicken or the egg, the black mob violence and black-on-white hostility and violence so wildly out of proportion, or anti-police, anti-white sentiments that are now mainstream in so many major media outlets and so easy to find. But today, there is no doubt they feed off each other: the Left rationalizes black violence and criminality, and black criminals feel emboldened.”
