Thunderdome 2020 Begins – Philadelphia Police Will Not Arrest for Burglary or Theft Due to Coronavirus…

As an outcome of short-sighted coronavirus issues, the Philadelphia police department has announced they will no longer be arresting suspects for retail theft, auto theft, burglary, narcotics or other “non violent” offenses.  Instead they will write tickets, release the suspects and address the criminality later on.  Now watch what happens.

CTH saw the instructions earlier today (see below) but we did not want to immediately distribute the information.  It should be remembered the current Philadelphia police commissioner, Danielle Outlaw (pictured left), is a social justice  activist from Portland, Oregon.

Unfortunately, there is a predictive element to this.  Perhaps some are familiar with the post Hurricane Andrew experience in Homestead and Miami-Dade.

The only thing standing between law-abiding citizens and those who would take their possessions is an ability to defend your own property.  This is now the Philadelphia reality.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Philadelphia police officers have been instructed to stop making arrests for certain non-violent crimes.

The department said individuals who would normally be arrested and processed at a detective division, will be temporarily detained to confirm identification and complete necessary paperwork. The individual will then be a arrested at a later date on an arrest warrant. (read more)

Beware, the law of unintended consequences.

Here’s the leaked guidance.  You can easily predict the problem with this policy:

From the instructions above…. Non-violent offenses include: All narcotics offenses. Theft from persons. Retail theft. Theft from auto. Burglary. Vandalism. All bench warrants. Stolen auto. “Economic crimes” (ie. looting, bad checks, fraud) and finally Prostitution.

Those offenders will be immediately released after documentation.

This is the exact issue that drives the need for law-abiding citizens to the second amendment for protection when the police openly admit they will not protect people or property.

    Change occurs when the pain of staying the same is greater that the pain of change.
    I believe most will exercise their Constitutional Rights when it is too painful to ignore them.
    Eventually, they will say, “Don’t Tread on Me”, if they are able to speak at all.

    This is appalling! My Lord, even if the situation was so bad that it called for this response, which I don’t think it is personally, but if it were, why on Earth would you make an ANNOUNCEMENT of it? It like they want to let loose the chaos or something??? 🤯

        That certainly applies to Philadelphia District Attorney Lawrence Krasner, elected with financial help from George Soros. He has more to do with this than the police chief does.

        Looking on the bright side, so to speak — Philadelphia is a Democrat city full of liberals in favor of going easy on crime, controlling guns, packing people densely into multi-unit housing, discouraging private cars in favor of mass transit, and outsourcing all possible manufacturing to China. Let them enjoy the fruits of their labor.

      That’s exactly what the left wants – chaos and anarchy. This gives them the opportunity to take powers they don’t rightly have when people start to panic and turn to the government for help. This is all intentional.

    I think these SJW activists are as usual, not letting a crisis go to waste, and using Coronavirus to implement their decarceration plan.

    Praying for good people in urban areas right now, especially in urban areas where citizens have been largely disarmed.

    *Sigh*
    Let me inject a little sanity here. There are going to be a LOT of places doing this same thing for many reasons:
    1) To protect officers coming into contact with the armadillo flu
    2) To keep jail staff and inmates from coming into contact with the armadillo flu

    In case you didn’t know, they are postponing courts, closing court houses, etc etc etc.

    In our society, when people sue over hurt feelings, the risk must be mitigated. State, county, and city attorneys all over the country and looking at CDC recommendations and Supreme Court edicts, and giving the marching orders to the rest. Their job is to limit the probability of being sued.

      Hmmm… so I can get on the freeway, do 90 and if pulled over I start coughing telling the CHP I don’t feel too well and I’m trying to get home ASAP?

      Even if I’m on the way to Vegas, smoking a cigar, on the 15?

      Perhaps I was confused… cough, cough, sneeze, cough…. hmphrrr…. which way is the coast? 😉

      Hey, sign me up.

      On another note…. that Chief of Police… lemme see… her credentials would be experience, gender, race, her politics…. three out of four, huh?

    Sadly, what we will see is an increase in violence when citizens will be forced to defend their own residences and property from those criminals who use the weakness of the Judicial system to the disadvantage of law abiding citizens.

    California’s been doing this to a degree under the Reduced Penalties for the Some Crimes Initiative. Theft of property valued at less than $950 is now a misdemeanor and can be treated with a citation.

    The inevitable result of this reminded me of Hurricane Katrina. Let me explain… I grew up in New Orleans (came north to go to college and stayed). Let’s just say that “laissez les bons temps rouler” isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life. The family had discussed what would happen should a hurricane ever run straight over the top of the city and all proposed scenarios were grim. So, Katrina’s bearing down on NOLA and by then my folks had moved away ages before so no worries about family fortunately. I gave them a the evening it was going to hit the city to talk about it and as we’re about to hang up, I rhetorically asked, ‘How soon after the eye rolls over town do you suppose the looting will start?’ My mother immediately asked, ‘What makes you think it hasn’t already?’ Indeed …

    Time to GET OUT OF PHILLY!

    And, as someone from Oregon, I just want to apologize for all the radical wackadoodles we seem to attract / create. Many of the police officers in Portland and surrounding areas, who began their careers when the state was still largely conservative, are struggling under this death cult of liberalism. Many are just trying to make it to early retirement.
