Six Police Officers Shot in Philadelphia – Standoff With Suspects Ongoing..

Troubling. Pray for the police.  ♦Over 100 gunshots were reported heard by witnesses as Philadelphia police responded to an initial drug related incident.  ♦According to authorities six police officers were shot; non life-threatening. ♦One suspect is in custody; ♦however, apparently another suspect is firing on officers who are pinned down inside a building as the shooter fires through walls and ceiling.

(Via Fox News) At least six Philadelphia police officers were wounded, at least one reportedly grazed in the head, in an ongoing shootout in the city’s Nicetown neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon that has been unfolding for almost two hours.

Three officers were rushed to Temple University Hospital, officials told Fox 29.

Three other officers were taken to Einstein Hospital, at least one of them was shot in the arm. All six officers are in stable condition and are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Two other officers, including a police sergeant, were injured in an accident related to the emergency response and are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

High-ranking police officials said that two officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant at a multifamily home when a shooter opened fire at the home. The two officers are barricaded in separate rooms with as many as four suspects in what may be a drug-related offense. At least one suspect is actively shooting, firing up a stairwell from a lower level in the building or potentially moving up and down the stairwell while doing so. One officer is barricaded in a bedroom with two suspects while another is in a bathroom with another suspect. (read more)

    Excerpt from a review (+2 years old) by sweaver1213 at StreetAdvisor I found online:

    [snip]
    “Not so nice”
    Despite what the name suggests, there are not a lot of nice things to say about the neighborhood of Nicetown. Located in the North section of Philadelphia, the area is bound by Broad Street to the east, Roberts Avenue to the west, Wingohocking Street to the north and Allegheny Avenue to the south.
    Nicetown is mainly made up of low income African American residents and suffers from a high crime rate. The area is also one of the most affordable places to live in the city due to nobody wanting to move there. The streets are often covered with garbage and there are a lot of abandon lots in the neighborhood.

    The blood being shed today by the Officers of the Philadelphia PD is on the hands of Harris and Warren.
    More specifically on Warren’s who stated a couple of days ago that Saint Brown was “murdered” by the police.
    Of course Warren purposely failed to mention that the Officer involved was cleared of any wrongdoing by Obama’s DOJ and Attorney General Eric Holder.

      I’ll give you the crime, but “crushing poverty”?

      How “crushing” can the poverty be?

      … when residents get housing assistance, heating allowance, WIC welfare, free food EBT, free breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack at school, with food backpacks sent home on weekends (has the EBT been decreased to compensate for all the free school meals?), welfare walking-around money (cash assistance), free Pell grants for college, etc, etc

      All on an “after-tax” basis compared to people who work for a living and are taxed on their paychecks.

      It all tallies up to about a $40,000 a year equivalent salary, I’ve read. And I think I’ve read higher figures.

      Not exactly “crushing poverty”, and partly explains why the residents have wide-screen TVs, $200 sneakers, expensive smartphones, and never seem to be short on cash for street drugs.

      I’m highly doubtful that any Americans are living in “crushing poverty” except maybe Appalachian whites who don’t have access to or don’t know how to milk the American welfare and benefits systems. And have opioid problems, many of them.

      I think your phrase “crushing poverty and crime immediately surrounding the campus” could more succinctly and accurately be translated to “it’s the black section of town”. See the streetadvisor description Janie M posted upthread.

      Just sayin’ – lest the phrase “crushing poverty” elicit too much bleeding from naive and easily swindled bleeding hearts

      Argos reported that the women said they were on the second floor of the building. He described the women as “visibly upset, crying, as they were escorted down the street.”
      “I think, I think, there were all these cops, they’re good people, don’t say nothing bad about them, they kept us safe the whole time, the whole time, they kept us safe,” one woman told KYW.”

    My Understanding is Philly PA, Mayor Kenny et al Government Policies Enable this….
    From what I’ve read, once the Cartels know all of your family members and in laws and have enough information, they “front” ie. give Narcotics to dealers without up front money to collect after the sales. So the Fellas are desperate not to be caught and lose the big money Narcotics they are “fronted”. If they do, in any way, they or their Family Members are wacked.
    Mayor Kenny et al specifically enable the Illegal Aliens Drug Mules and Cartels creating this situation. Cartels bring the Narcotics, line out the Fellas to deal it.
    This applies to most all Sanctuary Cities.

Trump needs to sharply differentiate himself from the other side on this like he has differentiated himself on illegal immigration/open borders (although, not as urgently as voters would like). He needs to publicly state that he supports the 2A and Americans’ Constitutional right to bear arms and that he will not support Red Flag Laws or Universal Background Checks as they are slippery slopes to loss of freedom. Never, ever give them your guns. That is our side’s purple resistance…

      And a special note to Ivanka:

      There is no greater rights issue than the right to bear arms. It keeps a tyrannical government from rising up against the populace. Owning a gun and being able to defend yourself should never be infringed upon with arbitrary determination laws. The right to own a firearm is especially significant to women for self-defense.

    I will wait until the details are out. Earlier this year there was a headline story about 4 police officers being shot in Houston and two suspects dead, and the Police Chief and the head of the Police Union held a chest thumping news conference about their valiant officers. As soon as I heard that the two dead suspects were a 60 year old Navy veteran with no arrest record and his 58 year old wife with one misdemeanor arrest I became suspicious. Didn’t really sound like the kind of people to get into a gun fight with the police. Turned out that the police had kicked in the front door on a no-knock warrant that was based upon a non-existent informant. There are a whole lot of other questions which HPD hasn’t answered yet.

    I am thankful to have toured the unbelievable historic sites of Philadelphia before it was UNSAFE to do so.

    Under Mayor Kenney’s watch, I wouldn’t step foot in Philadelphia. He is allowing the city to go to “hell in a hand-basket” — and very quickly.

    The video out there of the police harassment during this standoff while officers are being shot at is quite telling. Law enforcement is now being harassed in all of our major cities — New York, Baltimore & Philadelphia among them.
