The irony of this is delightful.
No honor among theives, huh?
That was certainly the message in Philly last night as looters poured out to rob multiple stores.
The only problem?
When the stores had been mostly looted, it appears they turned on each other.
Check out this report from local reporter Steve Keeley:
Easy come, easy go I guess!
It wasn't just looting, it was violence too.
LOTS of violence.
Take a look:
The The Wall Street Journal had more details on the violence and looting:
“Looters hit businesses in Philadelphia on Tuesday for a second straight night, as authorities struggled to contain civil unrest sparked by a video showing police fatally shooting Walter Wallace Jr., a Black man who was holding a knife.
Police said late Tuesday about a thousand people were looting businesses northeast of downtown, miles from the West Philadelphia neighborhood where the violence was concentrated a night earlier.
Police urged residents in several parts of the city to stay indoors because those areas were experiencing widespread demonstrations that had turned violent with looting.
Police had arrested 91 people late Monday and early Tuesday, most in connection with looting of pharmacies, shoe stores and other retail outlets, police said. Thirty officers were injured, mostly from hurled bricks and other projectiles, police said, and a sergeant’s leg was broken when she was hit by a pickup truck.”
And of course CNN had it all figured out....it was Donald Trump's fault:
