Default Philly riots

You just can't make this up:

At least 11 people were wounded during the overnight violence, with one Philadelphia officer saying: ďLooters were shooting looters,Ē according to FOX 29ís Steve Keeley.

In one instance, thieves allegedly stole a 50-year-old manís car after he had filled it with items that he had stolen from the stores, Keeley reported.

White reporter got jumped and had his mouth busted inside a Five Below store. I wonder if that changed his "peaceful protestors" narrative?

The guys I saw running out on the video had basketballs and tennis shoes. I guess maybe there were some open NBA tryouts nearby? I'm not really sure.

Saw a short news clip last night on one of the network TV channels ( I was flipping thru channels and stopped there for about 2 minutes)... They were looting a shopping center and had it well coordinated. The reporter stated that they started at the "Dollar General" then went to this store, then that store etc... The looters had guards posted and only let in "their people" to take goodies. They were shopping only not paying and just walking in and perusing the isles and getting what they wanted and walking out!! Not a cop in sight in the whole video!! What the hell is going on in this country?!! The reporter said the police were "completely overwhelmed"... yet no one was shot. No one was worked over with batons. No tear gas was deployed, nothing!! WHY?! I'll tell you why. Philly is a DemoKraut-run city and the leadership have the hand-cuffs and bobbles on LEO's so that they are not able to do their jobs, so they just leave the rioters/looters to do as they wish... I pray to God that this sort of thing does not happen in Texas! It's disgusting! If it does, and rioters/looters break into my business or home, I may be overwhelmed too, but there's gonna be a pile of dead bodies all around mine! It's time for Americans to stand up!!

From what I've seen of his (Elijah Schaffer) youtube channel... he ain't in the "peaceful protestors" camp.



TBH, he's luck they didn't recognize/kill him.

Itís not gonna stop until a staggering amount of people are lined with chalk. It baffles me why good citizens havenít starting shooting yet. Might as well? You get 50 people slinging lead and it would make for hard cases to solve.

People need to start realizing that this is going to lead to you, and only you, to protect and defend yourself, family and property. The cops are not going to get involved if the perps are black so they are going to run wild with a pass. Itís coming and there is no good ending. We either end up with feds policing the state (if trump wins) or we have to do it ourselves. If Biden wins itís going to be a free for all.

If Buden wins you won't be able to buy ammo, your cost of living will increase and you will see a big push to refund Obama care. Which means a bigger **** on those of us who actually pay for overpriced health insurance as it is.
So if you want to fight you can, until you're out of ammo.

I wonder if more of these people would be defending their property if their wasn't a shut down, and people were making money off these stores being looted.

Insurance rates are going to skyrocket for these city locations.

JJ. Lots of independent owners would if they were not deemed suspects in these places. The local government has taken the stance of let them do it. If a business owner takes a stance and kills a few they are being prosecuted. This has been the trend over the last few months in liberal government jurisdictions. A lot of these small businesses are underinsured and owners have their life savings invested.

You are right. But, they should have insurance like I do with the LTC. Then, they will be covered and protected. I have a small business in Rockport and if I have to defend myself, I'm covered. And, you don't have to have a LTC to get the insurance.

reading down the comments in the above link about the national guard arriving in Philly, I saw this that was posted by a Chinese immigrant who came here from Communist China... He/she gets it!!


If you are tired of the left ruining our country, vote for Trump. I came from China about 30 years ago. Inclined to the Democrat party before, I support Trump now. What democrats and the left are doing is exactly what Chinese communists have been doing: indoctrination, control, censoring/silencing, and violence/intimidation. They have destroyed what I believe the most precious things about America: rule of law and free speech. We saw many politicians before and we heard many promises, but they delivered close to nothing. They always first calculate their gains or losses, not your interests, and are weaklings in tough political situations. Like each of us, Trump is not perfect and I don't agree with everything he says or does, but I know he loves and fights for America, making HISTORIC achievements while going through endless smears, mocks, and false charges. He has done his best (but can't do it all), tirelessly, fearlessly, for free, for this great country. I am seeing America is back and winning under his leadership. Even Chinese communist leadership has admitted that Trump is the first U.S. president they are unable to fool. If Hillary or Biden was the president, USA would be beyond recognition in the recent left riots, loots, and cancel culture. If you want a leader with a magic wand for economy, supporting rule of law, free speech, and our military, having your interests in mind, can't-be-bought-or-sold, and getting things done for you, vote for Trump.
