In the lands of liberal lawlessness, juveniles have been weaponized to become criminals knowing their repercussions and consequences will be slim to none. Videos have swarmed the internet of a looting spree throughout Philadelphia of mostly minors, resulting in at least 20 arrests as police were horribly outnumbered.
Around 8pm Tuesday night, police started receiving multiple phone calls about huge crowds recklessly overtaking Center City. Among the stores significantly damaged and looted were Footlocker, Apple and Lululemon. The chaos was caught on camera by many onlookers and one shows just how brazen the criminals are as the female taking the video can be heard simply laughing in the background.

NBC Philadelphia reported that over 100 juveniles were involved, at least 20 arrests were made, but that as of Wednesday morning, police were still trying to determine just how many businesses were affected and to what degree.
Acting Police Commissioner John Stanford said Tuesday night’s activities had nothing to do with a peaceful protest that took place earlier after charges were dismissed against the officer who shot and killed Eddie Irizarry. Rather, he argued it was “a bunch of criminal opportunists”.
According to NBC Philadelphia, “Police said they knew there was potential for something like this to happen so after the protest they moved personnel to the area to quickly respond in the instance anything happened.”
“These were not protesters, these were criminals,” Stanford said. A security guard at the Wendy’s, Hakeem Russell, said that the store next to Wendy’s along Chestnut Street was broken into and the guard was assaulted.
“A couple a kids decided they wanted to take full advantage of the unjust shooting that’s happened,” Russell said. “It’s definitely been unrest around here since the verdict.”
Police said it’s “disgusting” to see what our city went through in 2020 and for people to try to recreate it.
A police vehicle was damaged but there have been no reports of any injuries, police said. “Everyone in the city should be angry,” Stanford said. Over the evening, NBC10 found reports of looting at locations in Center City as well as in Port Richmond and Northeast Philadelphia. Officials said they believe caravans of looters moved between locations throughout the evening. On Wednesday morning, Mayor Jim Kenney thanked the police for their diligence overnight, calling the evening’s incidents a “sickening display of opportunistic criminal activity.”
