Philadelphia residents have decried a recent spate of violent crime that has seen more than 750 people shot since the end of May, as a series of high profile incidents have rocked the crime-ridden city.

Since Memorial Day, shootings and assaults in the supposed City of Brotherly Love has been rife, with gun violence being particularly relentless.

One will always get the government the majority of voters are willing to accept. Sad but true.

Looks like 400 killed, 750 shot (not dead as stated) - close enough for the Daily Fail. Still a lot, but not as bad as during the crack wars.

Biden was right. There is no inflation. At least not for the young people of Philadelphia. Cost of goods has not gone up.

I wonder if there is any way to determine a common thread with these incidences.

And Shapiro who’s the state AG. He’s partially responsible for allowing this crime!

Like I said before crime nowadays has become part of political correctness. Anyone who crack down on crime will lose votes

Look at the demographics of Philadelphia (or any other large city) over the past half century to see where the crime problem may have developed.

And Josh Shapiro as governor. The problems in Philadelphia are 100% a creation of the Democrat Party. It’s time to turn them all out everywhere. Democrats are a scourge.

And the criminal element there couldn’t be happier at the likely election of their most ardent supporter, John Fettermen.

It’s more like 400 people ‘shot dead’, and more than 350 people wounded. It’s not that I am trying to diminish the crime in Philadelphia. I just think facts are important.

Journalists have to be some of the stupidest people around. They spend tens of thousands of dollars and go into massive debt to attend j-school. And what do they learn? They are supposed to be able to write at a sixth grade level and ask/answer the 5 W’s. They don’t know what questions to ask. They get their facts wrong. Many times you can’t get past a headline of a story without a blatant mistake or simply a lie. Many third graders could do a better job. Yeah, even write at a sixth grade level if they were homeschooled.

Philly will still have 130% turnout for Fetterman.

So according to the left, red state governors are responsible for these deaths. So I guess Wolf and Shapiro should be held accountable! Shapiro should drop from the governors race for supporting this....
