An unruly mob of Philadelphia youths decided to celebrate the July 4th weekend in an unconventional fashion- by mobbing an area Walgreens, leaving a path of destruction in their wake as they shoplifted store merchandise and attacked employees of the establishment.
About 60 people rushed through the entrance of the Philly store at 10PM on the holiday, leaving staff woefully unequipped to counter the gang of riotous youths intent on taking whatever they pleased.
On surveillance camera footage, the mob could be seen wantonly destroying and throwing merchandise- some of it at Walgreens employees who tried to stop the devastation the flash mob seemed intent on inflicting on their place of business.
The Philadelphia Police described the robbery as taking place at 1800 South Street.
Authorities are said to be searching for suspects, but it’s difficult to make arrests in incidents involving a full-scale mob. The riotous youths accordingly knew to use strength in numbers, making it difficult for Walgreens employees or the Philadelphia Police to stop them from thoroughly trashing a medium-sized retail store.
Bystanders were powerless to stop the criminals in their rampage, forced to stand by impotently as merchandise was trashed, stolen, and thrown at employees.
To most, the Fourth of July represents an opportunity to celebrate the nation’s founding peacefully with friends, family, and neighbors.
Unfortunately, a riotous gang of Philadelphia teens had very different plans in mind, taking advantage of the national holiday to amass a large group intent on committing criminal acts.
Another rampaging mob- of the Antifa variety- was seen burning American flags in front of the White House in Washington D.C. on the Fourth.

HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic
A big league victory for sanity.
The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.
The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.
Breaking: 5th Circuit rules for Texas in case over coronavirus abortion ban. Judge Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, cites "the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health."

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.
“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”
The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.
The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”
“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”
The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.
“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.
Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.
