No, it wasn’t Frank Rizzo.
It was Wilson Goode, the first black democrat mayor of Philly that burned down a predominantly black neighborhood.
Here he is taking “full responsibility” for it.

Law enforcement is supposed to have a say in how a city is run?
I guess now we can dispense with all those pointless elections.

No, Wilson Goode was mayor of Philly during that torcing of rowhouses, and not Frank Rizzo. Goode was Philly’s first black mayor, a fact which somewhat neutralized da commoonity’s response to the blaze. Had it been Rizzo, the whole city would have been torched.
