I like that at 0:02 the guy filming was in the line of fire and said, "Watch the wheel! Don't shoot the wheel," (i.e., don't shoot my car) instead of thinking maybe that he was in mortal danger and shouldn't be in that spot.

Anyways, probably not a good idea to walk aggressively towards police while brandishing a knife. Just a thought.

Another angle of the shooting here:

"'Put the knife down': Man shot, killed by police in West Philadelphia"
[WPVI, Philadelphia; October 26th, 2020]
http://6ab...-police-locust-street/7368220/

It looks like a pretty big knife on top of everything: maybe 8–10 inches based on the rear camera angle.

..
The riots may be sponsored by more of the Trevor Noah "social compact" logic; if you perceive injustice, you can do whatever you want.

It's pretty awesome because it's not even possible to apply justice on the timeline that rioters demand. The Philly police shot Walter Wallace on Monday afternoon, and it would probably take days and weeks to formalize charges, set court dates, etc. Meanwhile, rioters have a sweet spot of ignorance and emotional reaction where they can surrender accountability and Purge for a little while. Blessed be our New Founding Fathers for letting us Purge and cleanse our souls. Blessed be America, a nation reborn.

Tw, Philly is like Springfield, where it's ready to riot at the drop of a hat.

According to Hot Rod, many blacks support Trump. So maybe these people who are rioting now are Trump’s supporters.

Was hotrod alive for the Trump.presidency?

basically I see it like this.

1. Riots will deter/slow voting innthe afflicted area.

2. It reinforces the narrative that these democrats are burning/destroying our country, which has seemed to be an effective way to swing some voters ( defender of the suburbs and all)

Yes, I think he was. He died around Christmas after Trump had been elected. Maybe even a year into Trump’s presidency. Don’t remember exactly what year now.

Breaking: OBTAINED BY FOX29 NEWS. Directive from @PhillyPolice executive team. Extremely frustrated officers, both patrol&commanders told me overnight they were”ordered to NOT arrest looters just disperse them”. ‘CAR-2’ is Deputy Police Commissioner Melvin Singleton

Steve Keeley @KeeleyFox29

Yesterday when police announced the number of arrests in the Mon-Tues looting,charges were for “burglary”. And in the directive, @phillypolice point out no calls for burglary will be responded to by the dept.&officers think that leaves no deterrent to stop looting

Rugian, you obviously have no idea what the logistics of arresting that many people would entail. It's not like you are playing by any rules where if you are tagged you must report to the local jail and book yourself.

You dont have to arrest all of them at once to deter future african riots.

I see. So in your opinion, the police shouldn't even bother trying to stop acts of looting. And your boy Biden also wants to ban AR-15s, so business owners wont be able to defend their properties on their own either.

How is Trump wrong when he says that Democrats like yourself are bringing anarchy to our cities, again?

"Rugian, you obviously have no idea what the logistics of arresting that many people would entail. It's not like you are playing by any rules where if you are tagged you must report to the local jail and book yourself. "

Send in the national guard, round them up. If it still isn't enough, then that would count as rebellion and you could send in the US military.

In reality, police stick together and arrest a handful at a time, leave them locked up until the violence stops.

That's what the National Guard is there for.

The 1968 riots. Not only are the Guardsmen out in force, but they have rifles and bayonets as well.

Yet somehow its beyond the pale to advocate for similar measures in 2020.

The difference is that in 1968, journalists and Democratic mayors weren't siding with the rioters.

The Difference in 68 was Frank Rizzo. Most of the city was scared shitless of him.
