RIOT ALERT: Philadelphia Sees Protesting, Looting, and Violence After Police Shoot Knife-Wielding Suspect

Here we go again…

Officers responding to a domestic violence call in West Philadelphia Monday afternoon shot and killed a suspect refusing to put down a knife. In an all-too-familiar scene, protesters and rioters then took to the streets Monday evening to confront the police and cause mayhem.

The video, which can be seen here courtesy of WPVI, shows the suspect, Walter Wallace, getting shot after officers commanded him to drop the knife he was wielding. Wallace, knife in hand, clearly steps toward two officers aiming their guns at him. And that’s when they pulled the trigger.

As for the aftermath, @zerosum24 has been posting multiple videos and updates of this evening’s chaos on Philly’s streets:

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Draws Up Strong Anti-Riot Legislation in Expansion of Stand Your Ground Law

Awesome.

Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis is looking to expand his state’s Stand Your Ground law with specific anti-mob legislation, according to the Miami Herald.

The Miami Herald’s report is negative and critical in tone, but it does mention that Governor DeSantis is simply following up on his promise to crack down on mob violence.

He has proposed expanding, to quote the Herald, “the list of ‘forcible felonies’ under Florida’s self-defense law to justify the use of force against people who engage in criminal mischief that results in the ‘interruption or impairment’ of a business, and looting, which the draft defines as a burglary within 500 feet of a ‘violent or disorderly assembly.'”

DeSantis’ proposal would also make it a third-degree felony to block traffic while protesting, offer immunity to drivers who unintentionally hurt or kill a protester who blocks traffic, and allow the state of Florida to withhold funds from locales that cut police budgets.
