The Black man fatally shot by Philadelphia police officers on Monday was an aspiring rapper who sometimes rhymed about shooting people, including police officers, and was awaiting trial for allegedly threatening to shoot a woman, according to media reports.
Walter Wallace Jr., 27, also rapped about social justice and police injustice on his social media, WPVI-TV reported.
Court records obtained by the news outlet also show Wallace had a criminal history. In 2017, he pleaded guilty to robbery, assault and possessing an instrument of crime, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
Authorities said he kicked down the door of another woman and put a gun to her head.
He was sentenced to 11 months to 23 months in jail. In 2013, he pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and punching an officer in the face. It was not clear if the two officers who shot Wallace knew him, his mental health struggles or his past, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said Tuesday.
"There are several questions that need to be answered... including what the officers knew when they responded, what was put out by radio and how any previous contact with Mr. Wallace factored into yesterday," she said during a virtual news conference.

Watching these kind of makes me sad.
I wish I was that young again.
Why did the family call the police?
How can this thug be the father of three children? What women allow this?
How can someone so violent and with so many arrests be out on the streets free?
Why do major retailers even bother opening up stores in Philadelphia?
If I were the head of a Target Stores I would announce TODAY because of the lack of police protection We are permanently closing all Target Stores in Philadelphia.
Let LeBron James use his vast wealth to start a retail goods store and open up in all the inner cities.
I was born in the ‘70s, so I was just a little kid when a lot of those aired. Soul Train aired after the Saturday morning cartoons (there’s something else that’s now gone).
The decade wasn’t without its problems, but the culture wasn’t as sick, soulless, banal and evil as it is now, and with the added bonus of not having talentless, privileged scum lecturing us about how “wrong” we are for not subscribing to their deranged Stalinazi/PC/”Woke” agenda.
I was born in ‘61.
Those were halcyon days, compared to now.
I feel so sorry for people with kids.
This is all they will ever know.
I see little tiny kids walking around the stores with their Sponge Bob and Frozen face masks and I cry inside.
Yeah, you’re a year older than my half-sister. About the same age as the characters from “That ‘70s Show.” I used to watch the teenagers back then when I was a little kid in the ‘70s and envy their freedom and fearlessness (maybe recklessness ?).
Mine was probably the last generation that could go outside without having parents supervise each and every little thing we did, although even that was reigned in from the ‘70s teens by the time I became one. Now we see what that’s done. The most neurotic, overprotected, overpampered, overentitled, special snowflake megalomaniacs imaginable.
“Now we see what thats done. The most neurotic, overprotected, overpampered, overentitled, special snowflake megalomaniacs imaginable.”
Broken families? Raised by females with no male influence. Told that all things male are bad.
My HS boyfriend and I *were* Eric and Donna.
Like them, I graduated in ‘79.
Watching that show is so spooky for me.
I took off every day on the horse with the Dobes running behind and headed into the mountains.
I didn’t come home until after dark and no one worried.
No cell phones, no pagers, no nothing.
My dad raised me as the son he never had so I missed all that...but damn, I am ~useful~.
If TSHTTF, my family will be looking for me to keep them alive in the wilderness.
That is a weird and heavy burden for such a small chick.
As it is now, if mom hears something weird outside in the middle of the night, I have to weapon up and take the jacklight into her pitch black yard to see what apex predator is out there.
Get a load of this....
ACLU of Pennsylvania
For at least the third time since Labor Day, police in Pennsylvania have shot people of color who were in the midst of a mental health crisis.

Thats the new angle. The dead guy, who was armed with a knife he refused to put down, was just having a “mental health crisis”.
Question for the family then: Instead of calling the cops scores of times, why didn’t you have him involuntarily committed? Or call a social worker? Why keep calling THE COPS?
You are so right. I miss those years.
My female offspring thank me for teaching them “man skills”. But they will admit that they didn’t always appreciate it at the time.
I appreciate your skills as a fellow FReeper.
I loved every second of it and man, do I ever miss my dad.
I should be preparing to deal with the possible collapse alongside of him instead of trying to do it alone.
All I can do is remember the things he taught me and die on my feet.
I know your girls love you for what you learned them to be.
As a footnote, I will say that my hubby has become hysterical many times when we were out on the bikes on some back road that had no name, in the middle of the night, far from home.
He’d panic and keep asking me if I “knew where I was” and “how to get home”.
I will admit that a few times, I honestly had NO idea “where I was” *but*, as long as I could see the sun, moon, stars or horizon, I knew how to get back home.
That still mystifies him, to this day.
/basic nav skills...piece ‘a cake
I remember my dad saying “I’ve never been lost but I’ve been mighty confused a few times.”
That’s more a problem with Black families. The reason for their deteriorated state is entirely due to the post-1960s welfare state that demanded fathers not be present to get benefits. Created armies of future inmates. Sadly, what was considered shameful in the Black community soon became a badge of honor.
If the White community ever reached the level of deterioration and illegitimacy as Blacks, the entire society would collapse.
1979. The year I started elementary school. :-P
