As the city’s police department struggled to contain a standoff situation with an armed suspect, Philadelphia residents in the area could be seen lobbing trash or other projectiles at law enforcement Wednesday.
Area residents also shoved the police officers, confronted them in an aggressive fashion, and lobbed objects at officers.
Philadelphia police had been fired upon when serving an arrest warrant at a home in the city’s Nicetown neighborhood. Up to 6 officers were shot by a single individual, who may have been wanted for drug-related crimes.
A lengthy showdown ensued between Philadelphia police and the shooter. The authorities were ultimately able to bring the suspect into custody after calling in a SWAT team.
It’s unclear exactly why the area residents lashed out at police who were responding to a dangerous situation. Certainly citizens across the United States have reasons to distrust law enforcement, but obviously confronting cops in the midst of an active shooter incident isn’t the right time to challenge the police.
Watch a video of the shocking turn of events here:
Fortunately, the six officers who were shot are being treated at local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries. One was reportedly grazed in the head by a bullet. The shooter had pinned down police officers for hours, reportedly using an AR15-style rifle and several handguns.
Video of a man who was possibly the shooter being arrested emerged on Wednesday night.

It’s unclear if the mob began abusing the police officers before or after they took the suspect into custody. In either case, such behavior could have plausibly created a dangerous situation for no good reason.
Area residents who assaulted police while they sought to stop an active shooter scenario should be ashamed of themselves.
Leftist Michael Moore Chides Joe Biden for Pursuing “White Racist Redneck Votes in Michigan”
Moore isn’t happy Biden is going for Republican voters.
Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore blasted Democratic nominee for pursuing what he termed as “white racist redneck votes in Michigan in a Saturday tweet.
So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint? Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about “those Black people?” Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.

Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.
It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.
Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.
